I hear that this recently won the Finest Sandalwood Scent in the Universe Award at the intergalactic competitions. Well deserved, too, in my opinion. The kind of fine, light, sweet, warm sandlewood that one can only dream about. A distinguished wonder, suitable for both lads and lasses (and extra-terrestrials too).
I was very disappointed with this one, fleeting, boring, with a touch of lime and not much else. No resinous powdery sandalwood here...limes and pencils. I wonder if this one inspired Navegar?
Santal is very smooth and refined. It is obviously a creation of Jean Laporte whose basenotes are as identifiable as those of the Guerlains. Similar to nothing - except the other fragrances of Laporte in this line as well as Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier.
