    Default Wood and chocolate?

    Can you guys recomment me any Woody fragrances with dark chocolate?
    Not anything gourmand or sweet notes. Just plain wood and dark chocolate.

    I tried Bittersweet Symphony by Matriarch which was too much chocolate with a hint of cedar. I liked it, but would like to try something that is more Wood than chocolate.
    Thanks!

    To certain extents, perhaps also the Dior Homme range, less of the regular one and more of its Intense and Parfum flanker (minimal on the wood, but stronger on the non sweet cocoa), Givenchy Very Irresistible (for a walnut-cocoa-woody note), maybe even a certain crossover between Amen Pure Wood, Pure Wood and/or Pure Coffee, either if ever released or layering these can be a possibility

    Seconded, not excessively sweet, with just the right amount both cocoa and woody notes (while there is some sweetness, it is not extremely heavy and also allows for a slight dark chocolate or just plainly dark note)

    This. Dark, aged woods and cocoa.

    I was also going to suggest Dior Homme Parfum, but it’s more chocolate and other notes than Wood.
    1. No, never blind buy (I do, but do as I say, not as I do. I'm taking no responsibility for your fragrance gambling).
    2. Get them both. You're a Basenoter and you know you're going to end up purchasing them both eventually.
    3. Yes, it has been reformulated.
    4. Looking for a signature scent? You've come to the wrong place.

    Ready for a wildcard pick?

    Chocolate Man by Dame Perfumery

    It's not woody, but it would be excellent for layering because it's not complex at all. It's just chocolate. Period. Most layering tends to go badly because fragrances are complex. Maybe the top notes from two scents smell great together, but that doesn't mean their bases will. After the openings fade, things get funky (but then again, I'm convinced that most people who wear fragrances only seem to care about how the opening blast smells).

    Anyway... layering works best when one of the scents is very simple - the more linear the better - and something like Chocolate Man is exactly that. Simple. Linear. But rich. I had a sample but I gave it away here on BN, but if I still had it, I'd be tempted to try layering it over something like The One, or maybe even 1725 (that would either be a train wreck or friggin' fantastic!).

    And the best part is, Dame Perfumery sells good size samples. I didn't see Chocolate Man listed on their samples page - but maybe I missed it? The founder responds to emails and seems like an awesome guy, so if I were you, I'd definitely get in touch.

    JPG Kokorico if it's still available. I thought this better than it was given credit for Cocoa, cedar, patchouli and fig mainly.

    LIDGE could work given the cacao, sandalwood, and cedar notes.
