    Default Looking for a fruity woody fragrance

    Hello all:

    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?

    Thanks.

    PS: Aventus doesn't do it for me.

    Perhaps Wild Fruits by Mancera.

    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.

    DG Light Blue for men. Also Montale has one called fougeres marine. Cerutti Image is a nice one.

    Lalique Amethyst - blackberry & wood. Marketed to women but I think it's more unisex.

    It's been mentioned twice - but the Lutens bois line sounds perfect. Any of them (save for Un Bois Sepia...which is terrible).
