I went into work today and when I got home I sprayed on Knize Ten because the house smells of paint.

I find it to be a great fall/winter scent. On different days, my nose picks up on different facets of this one. (And there are lots and lots of facets.) Today, it smells very balmy and woody, and even a little bit boozy. I'm experiencing the floral notes in the background, although on other wearings they're more prominent.

To bring me up to date, how does this forum generally describe Cool Water?  I just think it has a clean fragrance.

Cheers,

Classifying fragrances is notoriously difficult, but I'd call Cool Water a fresh fougere. Very roughly, fougere scents feature lavender at the top and mossy green notes in the base.

Can recommend something that incorporates wood, leather, vanilla, tobacco, and maybe some spice?

Have you tried Herrera For Men?

I'd also investigate getting a sample of the discontinued Balenciaga Pour Homme.

I have not, I just recently realized I need to stop using the mall brand Lacoste cologne i've been wearing since High School, and up my game. The notes I listed are some of my favorite smells, so I want to compile a decent list of colognes that have those scents, and order some samples

Look at the line of Histoires De Parfums because the notes you mention are a strong theme throughout many of their scents, but especially the ones that are named after a year.

By Kilian Back to Black hits all of those but leather. It's an excellent scent, especially for cooler weather.

Dzing! by L'Artisan Parfumeur is also worth checking out. That's a forum favorite that features everything you're looking for except the tobacco.

Awesome, read reviews of these, seems exactly what I'm looking for. What site can you suggest for ordering samples from?

Is anything from Byredo worth checking out?

Yes, there are some very nice scents from this house. Here are the ones I'd recommend:

Green--This is a very bright green scent with strong white floral and musky components. To me it seems appropriate for all the seasons.
Baudelaire--Woody, balmy, and incensey scent. I've read reviews complaining that this is unoriginal, but I have never smelled anything like it.
Palermo--Bracing, sharp bigarade.
M/Mink--This is a very strange, avant garde scent. It smells inky, and it's very cold and uninviting. But it's interesting and worth checking out at least.
La Tulipe--This is more feminine than the others. It's just a pleasant, straightforward floral dominated by freesia.

Awesome! Thanks L'Incadescent.
