    Default Looking for something similar to Tom Ford Arabian Wood.

    Ever since i smelled Tom Ford Arabian Wood, there was something about it that grabbed me. It reminded me of my grandfather, although i never really knew him to wear any fragrance. It just reminded me of the smell when i'd get off the plane in Florida as a kid, and i'd get into his new Cadillac, and it just smelled fancy and "rich." I'm not sure what it is in Arabian wood that reminds me of that, but i'm trying to put my finger on it. I don't always enjoy Arabian Wood, so i would want to find something that had a similar vibe to it, but maybe a little more heavy with woody / oud notes. I don't really get any oud from this one. The only fragrance i've ever smelled that even reminded me of it a little was boucheron pour homme EDP, but that's a little too fresh and citrusy for what i'm looking for, although i do still like and own it.

    Any suggestions?

    Bois de Vetiver might give somewhat of a similar vibe.

    Is Arabian wood still in production, or has it been discontinued?

    Perhaps try Clive Christian V instead.

    Discontinued. I have about 3 of the sample jars from the mall. I went into bloomingdales after it was discontinued and the guy behind the counter was nice and filled 2 up for me.

    Vintage chanel 19 EDT or if you want more woodsy Parfum. Arabian Wood is extraordinarily similar, maybe lighter esp in the dry down.
