Perhaps Wild Fruits by Mancera.
I am looking for a fruity woody fragrance. Not the usual astringent citrus but more voluptuously fruity like mango, melon, orange, etc, mixed with sandalwood, cedar, patchouli, etc. Something like Kenneth Cole Reaction but with more fruit and more woods. A bit of sweetness would be good too but nothing overly aquatic. Any suggestions?
PS: Aventus doesn't do it for me.

The second time I have suggested this one in as many days....
Byredo Bullion. Top is plum and pink pepper. Mid has osmanthus which sort of smells of apricot, and leather. The base is a bit musky with some dark woody notes.

Armani Prive Vetiver Babylone is an amazing combination of orange citrus and woods. It is in my top 5. Highly underrated fragrance.

Mancera Kumkat Wood!!! Oh man, this is woody fruity stuff, just what you've been looking for.
Byredo Pulp is also in similar boat, but it's more fruity than woody. Great stuff nevertheless.

Is the juice worth the squeeze?
Kumkat wood is great too.

1861 by Xerjoff? Juicy mandarin oranges muddled with rich creamy woods. I like it.

Hypocrites will always be a thorn in my back....and my middle finger will always be the best remedy.....
It's been mentioned twice - but the Lutens bois line sounds perfect. Any of them (save for Un Bois Sepia...which is terrible).
Thanks for all of the suggestions. Looking forward to another round of sampling!
