    +1 on Oscar for Men
    +1 Vermeil, although Davidoff Original is far superior

    Consider...Versace L'Homme.

    ...and not to pitch it, but a fantastic Woody Spicy is Carven Homme!

    “Some perfumes are as fragrant as an infant’s flesh, sweet as an oboe’s cry, and greener than the spring; While others are triumphant, decadent or rich; Having the expansion of infinite things, like ambergris and musk, benzoin and frankincense, which sing the transports of the mind and every sense.”

    I'm still thinking of something that would fit you wishes but if you like spicy then Heeley's Esprit du Tigre is great:

    You mentioned in your opening post that you've tried all sorts of amber scents but none of them were "breathing". Here is the one which, to me, "breathes" the most: Mona di Orio's Ambre.

    A few suggestions which more or less match your requirements:
    Ormonde Jayne - Ormonde Man
    CdG - 2 Man
    Evody - Bois Secret
    Guerlain - Bois d'Armenie
    Lubin - Idole (EDT)

    I don't like Chanel Egoiste. The "platinum" version is better, but not what I'm looking for.
    Heritage, It reminds me L'air du desert marocain...I don't like them, too sticky

    I thought of this thread again today when I sprayed on Comme des Garçons Dover Street Market. It seems a great candidate for what you're craving: woody, spicy, warm, with only a little incense, no patchouli or tobacco or sandalwood, definitely a touch exotic. It makes me feel like a smart young guy in a gentlemen's library. It's masculine without being fussy about it. A bit underrated on here and worth a try.

    It's woody ( cedar ) but I do not detect citrus or spice in it, imo. But it is a very pleasant scent .

    OK, so a long list of requests with a long list of responses.

    Not sure how much sandalwood these contain but they are ones I've purchased in the last four-five months and they are exactly what I want - woody, not aquatic in any way, some incense in the latter:

    Prada Amber! A little sweet, clean, slightly spicy in a cinnamon kind of way, but not gourmand... contemporary, not in your face but prominent, attractive and well-received.
