    Default Request : Woody oriental, creamy and airy

    Hi. I'm looking for a Woody oriental, it has to be warm and voluptuous, creamy, but not very sweet or gourmand. And to the other end, not too dray (royal oud is very dray, as cgd 2 man is very dry too..). It has to be airy at the same time. I don't like oud or gourmand notes (except a little bit of vanilla). I'm just wondering about a fragrance made by incense, sandalwood, a little vanilla, a little amber and musk. No patchouli.
    I know this is a vague question... Any suggestion please?

    Dior Homme to me stays airy because of the vetiver in the base.

    The one edt..
    it’s oriental/woody/creamy/airy, epitome of Oriental woody IMO + very airy on me..

    Jaipur is dense, though I do get some wood - not "airy" at all, so that doesn't work for the OP, IMO. Jungle Homme by Kenzo might work.

    Orient Extreme by Montale perhaps.

    Tauerville Amber Flash.

    and maybe even Vanilla Flash too, if you want just a little more sweetness but still really not all that much.

    Kenzo Jungle Homme has some spices but on the sweeter side. Not as peppery spicy as some of the suggestions above.
    Also the base has guaiac wood and sandalwood that make it creamy.

    Carven Homme (1999)
    Molecule 01

    Perhaps try to layer them, I think the iso E super could provide some extra airyness to Carven’s creamyness. I think I will try this combination tomorrow
