    Default Looking for that WOOD scent

    I am looking for something that smells mainly wood.
    I want to smell like I sleep in Home Depots' lumber yard or I just chopped down some fir pine trees and the saw dust is all over me.
    I haven't tried any of Dsquared stuff, yet many say they get mainly florals from them.
    I do like terredh, and I did order EN even though I haven't smelled it before.( it just sounded good)

    I'm still fairly new to fragrance collecting, but I have figured I lean more towards the woody,spicy scents.
    Any other suggestions?

    Tam Dao was my SotD. I find it very creamy and something that can be easily worn by a female, therefore not that masculine.

    For a more masculine take on woods, I would say Duro from Nasomatto.

    +1 for Duro. Too expensive IMO, but it's aallllll wood and lasts a week on your skin

    +1 Wonderwood - pretty pure wood scent

    My other favorite woods tend to have incense... L'Artisan Parfumeur Dzongkha (Cedar, and more woodsy than Timbuktu), Serge Lutens Fille en Aiguilles, Amouage Memoir Man, and Creed's Royal Oud (a great spicy wood scent, even with no OUD to be found).

    The home depot feel you ask for is best represented by Tam Dao EDT version - longevity is an issue, so re-spray after 4 hrs or so for better performance...

    If you ever get the chance to try it- S Lutens- Bois Oriental is a boozy strong cedar scent that is warm and creamy. Only available in bell jar though.

    Micallef Shanaan - but old wood, like medieval church pews, Gaiac - pure wood, Profumum Roma Sandalo - robust raw sandalwood, L'Erbolario Tea and Cedar - dry wooden bank on midday summer sunshine, Frapin Passion Boise - little bit spicy, meditative wooden smell, Lacroix Tumulte - just strong wood, as it is, take it or leave it

    I would suggest He Wood Rocky Mountain Wood, a very woody/outdoorsy feel to it and very wearable at the same time.

    Now for some specialized wood:

    Montale Aoud Musk - Starts with heavy masculine/oud/wood feel and gets a dark/strong "ebony wood" to the finish
    Profumum Roma Arso - for some "burning" wood
    Tom Ford Amber Absolute - this isn't so much wood as wood chips, a lot of people pick up a strong sawdust/wood chips accord.
    Current favorites_____Black Tourmaline_____Gucci Pour Homme II_____Memoir Man_____Tuscan Leather______Montale Aoud and Pine_____Sel Marin_____Invasion Barbare_____Tonka Imperial____Dior Homme Intense_____L'Humaniste____Santal 33_____Bois d'Argent_____Nio_____MFK Oud_____Lumiere Noire_____Bois d'Encens_____Cuir Ottoman

    Well, I tried Tan Dao yesterday, unfortunately the sprayer was broken on their tester so I just dabbed some on. I must say, it is definitely straight dry cedar oil smelling. I wish I could have applied it on properly to get the full effect.

    I want to thank everyone for your suggestions, as you have definitely push me in the right direction. I can't wait to try some of the others mentioned.

    Wonderwood is very solidly wood. Dry wood.

    CdG Monocle Hinoki is even more solidly wood, except it is fresh hamster chips- pure cedar- to me. Both have left my collection as they were a bit much for my wife and I wasn't crazy about them.

    thanks

    Here's a question back at you... What KIND of wood do you want to smell like? There's many sorts in fragrance and many compositions are built to showcase a particular individual specimen while others are intended to be a woody blend of two or more. Knowing that, we can suggesst some specific items centered around the kind you like.

    Pine
    Cedar
    Oak
    Sandalwood
    Gauiac
    Agarwood (oud)
    Cypress
    Fir
    Juniper

    Well, lm still new to the fragrance world, and most stuff I've smelled has been designer frags.I like blended woody,spicy scents.
    I'm not a big fan of Oud( at least not yet). Tam Dao was too dry for me, but interesting.

    I like many of the woods listed.


    Pine
    Cedar
    Oak
    Sandalwood
    Gauiac
    Agarwood (oud)
    Cypress
    Fir
