Bortnikoff Sans Fleurs.

Is this a good scent? Yes.

Would I wear it again? Almost assuredly no.

I think @patrickBOOTH is on to something with the fertilizeresque smell. I think it's more akin to the funk in a rhum agricole but it's a..... scent for sure. There's interestingly enough some flowers to this and the general Bortnikoff smell I've picked up on all the others I've worn. Weird scent. It's kind of like experimental classical music: you can like it for what they are doing but not want to listen to it.

Been wearing Helmut Lang Cuiron a lot lately. I think I could be happy with a three-bottle collection of this, Dusita Issara, and Indult Tihota

Maybe DS & Durga's Pale Grey Mountain, Small Black Lake if I can add one more.

He definitely like yellow florals. Ylang, champaca are almost always present. But yeah fertilizer! I love it because it brings me back to my landscaping days, but no I wouldn’t wear it. Musk Khabib which I got recently is awesome.

Cuiron is the only one of these you’ve mentioned that I have smelled but I always loved that scent. Thank you for the reminder maybe buy a bottle!

It was one of the first full bottles that I have bought. I think of it more of a summer scent, however.

Can anyone recommend a spring time fragrance that doesn't smell like more citrus or wood or floral scents like I've been wearing?

Would something with a somewhat woody base be all right? Eau de L'Occitan is nice: a spicy, lavender fougere with pepper notes.
