    Question Which one in woody-spicy family would you consider masterpiece/groundbreaking

    Hi there!

    I'm in want seems to be my woody/spicy phase. I just bought Oscar for men, and even if it's not THE stellar one, I'm really liking it.
    Since the word "groundbreaking" is often used when refering to the like-no-other-one-never-done-before frag, to sum things up, so which one (or more) do you really consider... off the hook

    Thanks in advance for the replies!

    Cheers!

    For woodyness (?woodiness) I would say GPH I - super-sharp pencil shavings and hot resins, but such a shame it doesn't last long. Norne, Bois d'Asces and Dior Jules are good choices also.

    I'm not a massive fan of "spice", as to me that means cumin, which smells very sweaty. I don't mind saffron, coriander or cardamom but they are hard to find in good fragrances, I feel. If anyone has any suggestions...

    +1 for LddM, although leans a long way into the spicy family rather than woody imo.

    Received a personal e-mail from Marc de la Morandiere today. He has a few example bottles of the new finished product that came off the production line in the new bottle packaging. He said this will be available to the public at large, at the beginning of July. The price he said will be the same as before - 100 Euros for 100ml. I declined his offer to purchase the newly produced product as I still have more than 300ml of the old stuff and told him I'd reconsider it when it becomes available in July.

    I have to add The Different Company Oud Shamash to my list. Recently sampled it and it is amazing.. I think it may be the pinnacle of spicy wood scents that I have tried, in terms of really balancing the spice and wood so they are equal players.

    I'm a big fan of CdG Wonderwood. I've heard spotty things about the longevity but on me I get 8-12 hours easy. It's seeming that way with a lot of longevity-weak frags (John Varvatos not withstanding)though so I'm starting to think I just have good skin
