    Default Bone dry, non-musky scents?

    Recommendations? No labdanum. Woody is fine. Citrus is fine.
    Don't ask me to scrute the geranium. Some things are inscrutable.

    Look for sandalwood, vetiver, cedarwood, oakmoss, incense. Out of the floral components, iris might be dry.

    I second Sycomore, very fresh and dry woody vetiver.

    You might like Eau D'Hadrian-Annick Goutal, EDP recommended (EDT is too faint) or Matin D'Orage also Goutal; bone dry gardenia. Also, Del Rae- Illuminae; dry, tingly lavender.

    One that immediately comes to mind is Open by Roger and Gallet. Zero sweetness and probably the dryest fragrance I've experienced so far.

    Ubar Amouage is beautiful and dry .
    I must also add the new Mona di Orio Violette Fumee. It's a dry woody violet that opens with a blast of citrus. Unusual and good stuff.

    New(er) Amouage Fate might meet (or exceed) your criterion.

    Estee Lauder Azuree
    Chanel Cristalle
    Balmain Ivoire
    Guerlain Sous le Vent
    Hermes Caleche

    These 5 are quite dry smelling.

    To my nose and in my strictly personal opinion, two classic (but not classic as in dated, classic far more in terms of stylishness, timelessness, maturity, clean-cut poise) Chanels smell quite dry and non-musky to me, both also quite citrus dominated: Cristalle and No. 19, the latter in any concentration.

    On the more adventurous side, though marketed as male, there is at least one particular fragrance I could imagine easily as a vibrant, apparently linear yet not lacking subtlety, woody type dry, feel good, comforting yet also invigorating scent: Acca Kappa Cedro.
