Synthetics tend to be the norm in what you'll find easily, due to price and IFRA regulations. It sounds like you're really looking for something subtle. Le Labo's Gaiac 10 might fit the bill for a subtle woody scent, but it's very expensive. Kenzo's Once Upon a Time Pour Homme is a good fresh/woody scent. Chanel Sycomore is an earthy, woody vetiver, but it's not inexpensive (Encre Noire is a cheaper alternative, but it's far louder and more synthetic, due to large amounts of Iso E Super, but it might still worth be trying if you don't over-apply). For a more citrusy, greener vetiver, Guerlain's vetiver is the standard, and Tom Ford's Grey Vetiver seems to have a lot of fans.
