    Red face D&G Light Blue, Non-Summer Variation

    Love love D&G Light Blue but it is so overwhelmingly "summer", I want another option in my signature line up. Any perfume suggestions? Not anything overly sweet. I love the Jasmine, sandlewood, cedar, amber, and musk notes in Light Blue.

    Further notes: I also wear Channel Chance. My favorite men's cologne is Dior Fahreinheit (I have worn it myself a time or two). I also like tobacco and lavender scents.

    Please and thank you,
    Jay

    To clarify, I am looking for something that is a bit more natural smelling - musky/woody

    You might like to try ‘I Profumi di Firenze- Muschio Nero’ since it has the musk topnote, only it’s deep and dark instead of bright and white. The overall effect is atumnal rather than spring-like. Possibly that would be of interest. It’s a lovely scent.

    If you can’t find a bottle of it, maybe this ‘Muschio Ambre’ would be good.
    I can recommend the ‘Tulipano Nero’ as a luscious dark musky rose.

    Chanel No 19 parfum. Or perhaps the edt. I do not recommend the edp- most “perfumey”, least natural smelling of the three.
    I love the parfum, but gave a nearly full bottle of the edp away.

    To my nose, Light Blue is a citrus / cedar scent, and I agree the citrus is much more of a warm weather vibe. Some that have a nice woody vibe without the juicy citrus:

    Serge Lutens Feminite du Bois
    Diptique Tam Dao EDT or EDP, or Eau Duelle
    Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier Santal Noble, Amber Precieux
    Clean Sel de Santal, Sueded Oud
    Sarah Jessica Parker Stash
    I'm rejiggering my fragrance wardrobe and am selling some things in the marketplace.

    I love Light Blue too. For me it’s the floral, ambroxan (soft wood), apple and musk mix. I love that apple note, nothing like it.

    One with ambroxan and a nice musk is Eau Duelle in the edp version (not the edt). It may not be as dark as you’re wanting, but I wear it in winter fine.

    Narciso for Her is an all season fragrance with a great musk

    Jasmins Marzipane by Lancôme, is really pretty and not sweet like it sounds.

    Madison Avenue by Bond No. 9 has apple, ambroxan, and musk and smells a little like Light Blue, but it also has a candy note you may not like.

    Maybe try the Eau de Merveilles line from Hermes. Also citrusy-woods but salty-sweet, too, and richer. Or if you don’t mind a male-marketed one, Terre d’Hermes Eau Tres Fraiche.
    My only regrets in life are the people I haven't stood up for,
    and the perfumes I've thrown away.

    I think Eau des Merveilles is a great suggestion
