Hi all.
I imagine my Ideal formula about a possibile segnature fragrance.
The opening : citrus ( bergamot or bitter Orange )
Then : vetiver, incense , cedar , pepper , white Musk.
Second version : the same as above , plus Amber added.

Suggestions ?

Cdg 2 man : almost perfect
Azzaro visit : nice, too sinthetic,
Loewe 7 : very good, It lacks a Little citrus and a Little vetiver
Cdg vetiveru : It lacks some pepper
Loewe 7 natural : too fresh
Mark Jacobs bang : too much pepper
Terre d' ermes : i don' t like It , too earthy and Orange
Encre noire : too dark
Bentley Absolute : i dont like It

Any suggestion ?

The only thing I can think of is layering Atelier's Orange Sanguine to give you to the top note of bitter orange and the base note of amber, with some sort of clean woody incense. Perhaps something like Santo Incienso?

Opus 1870. Good pepper and cedar. Nice subtle floral . A Little incense, maybe too Little. Lacks also on vetiver and Musk sides. Quiet good anyway

Also nice kyoto and tumulte. Just around cedar and, in a lesser way , pepper and incense. They need vetiver and citrus to become what i' m looking for.

Loewe 7 also in the Natural version.
Bitter Orange, yuzu, pepper, incense, vetiver, cedar, Musk.
This one, without yuzu and boosted on the woods would be perfect .
As Cdg 2 man, would be another perfect option, without those too strong pencil shavings .
