Getting back into fragrances

Hello everyone! i've been a member of basenotes for over 10 years (oh my, where has the time gone). I took a long break from fragrances around 2010 and I'm just getting back into it. I've been on a spree, adding to my collection, testing out all these new scents and Exploring new scent categories. Could you guys make some recommendations for me that I don't have but might enjoy? I'm looking to add to my collection but also expand my palate. I seem to favor fresh and woodsy scents and i'd definitely like to explore more categories, as well as grab some masterpieces from the categories I do like.

Guerlain Heritage EDP - there's this dirty animallic smell about it that I absolutely hate. It stays around for an hour or so and I dislike the scent until it disappears. Once the dry down kicks in, I think its pretty pleasant.

Dislikes: (I either own these or have traded them away)
Zara 9.0
Zara Aromatic Future
Dior Sauvage
Insurrection Pure 2 (doesn't last at all on me, pleasant smell though)
Lacoste Booster
Lucky Number 6
