    Default Looking for a really good and inexpensive sweet and woody fragrance with excellent performance???

    I've tested a cedarwood fragrance by Zara the other day, and instantly fell in love.. However, the fragrance was short lived on my skin and had little to no projection/sillage.

    Can any of you recommend a pleasant, sweet and woody fragrance with good projection and sillage in the price range of $100 or less?? It'll be greatly appreciated 😊👍

    Thank you, Ken! I see that this could be had for $12 where I live. How's the performance on this? Also, is it something you would wear? If so, I would pick this one up today. 😊

    Thanks for asking, getting almost EDP performance on this, the longevity and projection are just stunning and even 3-4 sprays feel enough, 5-6 almost too lavish and strong even far a chronic, long term, habitual over-sprayer like myself.

    If the budget is $100 (which is not that small), then I think it's hard to beat the classic Chanel Egoiste, warm, smooth, sandalwoody, lasts very well.

    Just wrote a post on this stuff. If the cologne is anything like the body wash I love, then this is perfect.

    Do you live in NYC? If so, you might find it in the Wholesale Fragrance District, but not sure. Don't recall seeing tha particular one there the last time I was in that neck of the woods.

    Remy Latour Cigar Black Wood.

    A sweet and woody scent all the way. It gets compared to Tom Ford Oud Wood, and while I think those comparisons are a little overblown, there is some similarities with Black Wood having a nice sweet note missing in Oud Wood. For its current price definitely worth looking into.
