    I think you are quite a bit younger than me, so keep that in mind.

    The only two I own are JOVOY PSYCHODELIQUE and PRIVATE LABEL. I can't say enough good things about them.

    PSYCHODELIQUE is very potent patchouli that smells like rich, dark chocolate cake. Not particularly "sweet" but the chocolate note is overwhelming. It's amazing. It made me laugh first time I wore it as it blossomed on skin.

    PRIVATE LABEL is heavy, earthy vetiver with some patch and leather. I think it's become one of my semi-gloomy Covid favorites. It's not particularly sexy or fun, but it is a good, if kind of serious, scent. Not that kind of scent I thought I would enjoy but I like it a lot.
    Between Covid and retirement I don't get out much. But when I do, I smell real good.

    Can't see a reference to Floris London 1962 in your list. Essential to sample this if you like woody fragrances

    If you love Jovoy and Vetiver, you must check out Incident Diplomatique.

    Other possibilities:
    Oud for Greatness - Initio
    Ombre Leather - Tom Ford / Godolphin - Pdm (great leathers)
    Santal 33 - Le Labo (great sandalwood fragrance)
    Encre Noir - Lalique (cheap woody\cypress frag)
    Norne - Slumberhouse (pretty much a forest in a bottle)

    Would stay with most if not even this entire list and add/second almost any Memo Paris fragrance available for testing, particularly the Les Echapees line.
    Same with most if not any Guerlain exclusives, Jovoy-particularly the Sept Parfums Capitaux range, again most if not the entire Shooting Stars and XJ series by Xerjoff.

    #Olympic Orchids Woodcut - this stuff is genius!!! (If you like wood) Won one of those industry awards the year it came out.

    The comparison for Woodcut that comes to mind usually is Tam Dao. I prefer woodcut, just so much going on there and all wood, but Tam Dao has a nice very direct wood note too.

    If Woodcut is too much wood - yes, it seems crazy, but some people experience it - then check out more Olympic Orchids - Tucson is kind of a Woodcut light. Several types of wood scent but more non-wood mixed in. Olympic Rainforest leans toward different types of woods but is also quite nice.

    Finally, a very dark and dry and not so opulent suggestion from the other end of the wood spectrum, Colonia Ebano.
