    Default Other woodsy scents to try?

    One of my favourite scents still comes from a super cheap (£2.49 for 110ml!) Bottles of aftershave from a UK chemist:

    However of course, it lasts for just minutes. In looking for an EDT to pair with it, I've tried:

    Tsar (which I liked and will get, but not to pair with this, as it's quite different)
    YSL Jazz (harsh and too expensive)
    1881 (found it a little too floral on the drydown for my tastes)

    What else is there? A fresh woodsy barbershop scent?

    Have you tried any Guerlain offerings? I feel like Guerlain's Vetiver/Vetiver Extreme and Guerlain Homme or L'Eau Boisee would be good fresh, woody options that are not too expensive.

    Splendid Wood perhaps.

    Yatagan might be worth a try!
    It’s tragic to think that heroic man’s great destiny is to become economic man, that men will be reduced to craven creatures who crawl across the globe competing for money, who spend their nights dreaming up new ways to swindle each other.

    If you enjoy sandalwood, I would suggest Chanel Egoiste.
