    Default recommend me a fragrance without this list of notes

    Point me towards a fragrance that doesn't have any of the following notes in it:

    Leather
    Lavender
    Aquatic
    Musk
    Coffee
    Pineapple
    Vanilla

    There's only seven notes in this list, so surely one of you can find one fragrance that doesn't have one of these.

    I went through a long list of fragrances and was very disappointed, I couldn't find even one fragrance that didn't have one of these notes in it.

    By the way, I like EVERYTHING else, but even one of these notes would ruin it for me.

    Let's make this into a game, who can recommend me a fragrance that doesn't have one of these 7 notes in it?
    (It might be harder than you think)

    I'd say Grey Vetiver or Body Kouros.

    By the way, it seems that the list of notes you don't like has been expanded:

    Many of Jean Claude Ellena's fragrances don't contain musk - apparently he despises it.

    Some examples:

    Terre d'Hermes
    Bigarade Concentree
    Vetiver Tonka

    Other fragrances by other perfumers without the notes you mentioned:

    Encre Noire
    French Lover / Bois d'orage
    Mitsouko

    Terre d'Hermes is a popular option. CdG Wonderwood.

    Lots of options if you look in the dry/woody category.

    Well, usually it is mostly testers that have lists of notes on them, so stay away from testers for starters.
    If it has to be without that exact list of notes, I doubt you will have a hard time avoiding one, I can only think of 1270 by Frapin with most of those notes in it at the same time, so just stay away from tester bottles of 1270

    Surely you can find many fragrances that don't have any of these notes. The perfumes that don't contain any of these notes are so broad and numerous that I doubt the answers will be of much use to you. It's like telling people you've been to (and disliked) Maine, Florida, Kansas and Minnesota, and expecting to get useful recommendations of places you would like to live.

    Why don’t you try fragrantica’s “search by note” function? They have an option where you can exclude notes you don’t Like.
    The French have a phrase for it. The bastards have a phrase for everything.
