Plenty of niche to choose from...
Amouage Epic is one to look into, as is Villoresi's Sandalo.
Looking further, there's Diptyque, L'Artisan and MPeG to choose from. Not mentioning Frederic Malle.

Try Chypre Palatin - also a nice all rounder.

― Isaac Asimov
here's the direct link... of course it's a less strong than the original (it is) but to me it's a super masculine scent that works well despite staying close to the skin.
My list is down to these:
HDP - Hemingway and Casanova
DK - Fuel for Men
AF - Tzora
MKF - Lumiere Noire and Pluriel
I'm selling off some stuff currently and I plan to buy 2 or 3 of these on the above list. Thanks for all your help!
A Lab On Fire - Almost Transparent Blue
I like Lubin's Le Vetiver's line for a versatile, year round experience that won't cause your wallet to grieve too much. I don't think you can go wrong with either Itasca or Bluff, although I am a bit preferential to Itasca.
TF Extreme or the amazing Amouage Dia would probably also work.
Dzongkha - l'Artisan Parfumeur
Idole - Lubin
Knize Ten - Knize
Lightscape - Ulrich Lang
Aperture - Ulrich Lang
Oud Immortel - Byredo
Sel de Vetiver - The Different Company
Timbuktu - l'Artisan Parfumeur
Derby - Guerlain
Sycomore - Chanel
Clive Christian X for Men
Amouage Epic - Man
Cedrat Boise by Mancera
Brineapple (Pineapple, Guava, Ylang Ylang, Marine Notes, Green Tea, Cade, Guaiacwood, Cedar Wood, Ozone) / Fur - (Vintage Musks, Woods, Leather) / Onsen Wood (Hinoki/Hiba/Cedar/Yuzu) / Winter XVI (Tree Saps, Extractions and Resins, Bois des Landes, Bourbon Vetiver, Spearmint, Frankincense & Myrrh) / L.O.M. Leather Oud Musk (Leather, Oud, Musk, Beeswax, Tobacco, Strawberry, Incense & Amber)
Uomo by Lorenzo Villoresi
In addition to the great suggestions so far, would love to add a few more:
ADP Colonia and Colonia Assoluta
La Martina Hombre
Hugh Parsons Yellow
Penhaligons Opus 1870
Most of these fragrances are office and/or work place appropriate, centered mainly around citrus, with the occasional hint of spice- mainly pepper, albeit an inoffensive, understated type, leather and/or fern.
Invasion Barbare (just go light on the trigger)
Almost anything from Acqua Di Parma
Seriously give these a shot
Encre Noir (under $100)
Blenheim Bouquet ($100-$200)
Rose d"Arabie ($200-$300)
X ($300 +)

Hey guys, when the dust settled, I ordered full size bottles of:
Amouage Ciel Man
Amouage Epic Man
Serge Lutens 5 O'Clock Gigembre
Thanks for all your input! I actually have some cash left over for a couple of designer scents!
Bois d'Argent would be the perfect signature scent for me if I wanted one.
Scent is amazing. Performance is exceptional. Price is excellent.
What more could you want?
