Curious which CDG you've tried, I can't say I've ever smelled something sweet in a CDG fragrance and I tend to think of them as quite dry and transparent. They often have quite punchy openings, but the dry down is never dense or heavy. But like Toxicon said, I know this is all quite subjective so not calling your experience wrong.I'd be interested to find one too. The ones that I've tried from Comme de Garcons - several of which are mentioned in this thread - I find too sweet, dense and perhaps not "dusty"/"raw" enough to fit the bill. Same goes for Tam Dao EdT: it smells like a perfume (surprisingly! ), not real wood and it's quite sweet.
