    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).

    I've tried Creeds Royal Oud, not really what I'm looking for, but I'll check out some of the others.

    Norne sounds interesting, a little darker than what I was looking for but very interesting none the less.

    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 Boisée - little bit spicy, meditative wooden smell, Lacroix Tumulte - just strong wood, as it is, take it or leave it

    Tam Dao EdT--like spending the whole day in a wood shop cutting cedar. You come home covered with the dust.

    Check out the Comme de Garçons stuff - Hinoki, Palisander, etc. and L'Artisan Timbuktu might also be worth a look.

    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

    +1 on all of these. Comme des Garcons Sequoia also fits the bill.
