Reviews of Santos Concentrée

A richer version of the original Santos by Cartier.

Santos Concentrée is a definite period piece, reflecting the wild, expressive, and experimental 1980's. Starting with the nice citrus-peel and spice opening, Santos Concentrée ends up with a slightly spicy-woody-sweet quality that is best suited for evening wear, esp. formal.

Comparisons can be made to Antaeus by Chanel and Oscar de la Renta. Santos Concentrée, like the original, have a vintage, older and more mature man finish that will doubtlessly alienate many but also draw reverie in more mature wearers.

Unfortunately I never tested the original from the 80s, my bottle is from early 2000, but i like it . It feels right for men above 40, smooth and wearable .

Santos rose from our
Table of perfumes and wine.

I find it meh. Nothing great about it. I liked vintage Santos better. It had character and funk. This one seems too plain. A spicy woody generic thing.

Bad reformulation perhaps.

One of a handful of 80s powerhouse scents I can wear. Santos Concentree's dense patchouli, dark woods and strong herbs and spices lend it a deep, booming, gravelly voice which is unapologetically masculine in tone. This type of scent risks coming across as dated nowadays, for hairy-chested medallion men only. But initial impressions may deceive, as this macho man is softer on the inside;the gruff exterior conceals a tender heart, sweetened by anise and jasmine. The secret with wearing this one today is conservative dosing. I use two sprays to the chest and it projects well but doesn't suffocate. It will get noticed, however. Moreover it lasts all day. I'm not often in the mood for this type of 'Charles Bronson' scent, but when I am, nothing beats Santos Concentree!
Footnote: the sprayer is the best on any bottle I have come across.

I absolutely agree with maccus who said:

"a kind of oriental and gourmand concentration with concentrated herbal astringents and a little green element that create a sillage that warrants its own distinct classification"

however, unfortunately in my case that is not a good thing! This is so herbal and astringent that it borders on offensive. It smells to me like an unlit cigarette squashed into a vanilla custard and then thrown into a pot-pouri oil burner.

I really have tried to find something good about this but everytime I give this one another go I regret that decision. The overwhelmingly 'positive' reviews compared to 'negative' ones for this fragrance on basenotes just baffles me; but of course I respect that other people can find a joy in this that alas I can't find no matter how hard I try. The word 'stink' comes to mind.
