Reviews of Santalum Slivers

opens with a peppery citrus...a citrus blend...i don't get so much any individual notes as I do a fruit melange...if anything, the orange struggles to try to draw your attention...cucumber gives it a watery texture and refreshing quality...a very pleasant and enjoyable smell I am getting from this...would pair up nicely with a pair of shorts and a Hawaiian type it progresses a nice smooth sandalwood rises and weaves it's way into the citrus...overall, a very nice citrusy/woody experience...I can see enjoying wearing this...

Santalum Slivers is one of a few entries from Kerosene that seems geared toward warm weather wearing rather than cold weather wearing, and as a woody/citrus blend, it can even lean toward year-round usage.

Its main characteristic is a blend of sandalwood and several citruses to create a fresh woody/citrus mix that leans slightly masculine but is really quite unisex, then is blended with pepper, musk, and vetiver in the dry down.

It's predictably a very pleasant mix overall, perhaps the most inoffensive offering from Kerosene, and, with Summer of 84, the only offering that seems more geared toward warm weather usage.

It performs pretty well, perhaps on par with Summer of 84, so more like a warm weather option that's a little fleeting but with some good base notes, but not up to the performance of most of the line.

For me it's a "like" not a "love" though, much like Summer of 84. I would like to continue to wear it but don't feel inclined to buy a bottle of it.

Huge lemon and cucumber mix at start. A bit jarring. Right now, I am not getting any sandalwood, and frankly the other base or heart notes are still hidden. This is going to be interesting.Reading the notes, it makes sense that there is so much citrus at the top; in addition to lemons, there are oranges and grapefruits. It also explains to me why the lemon does not really smell just like lemon, but some hybrid citrus. Nearly a half hour in, and still nothing but the citrus on me. Two hours in, and some of the woods come out. I little grassy note, and a bit of wood. There is nothing wrong with this, it is clearly well made, and pleasant. Perhaps save for a summer application.

Ok, three hours in, and the sandal wood starts to come settle in. A long time to get here on my skin, but now a really nice mix of natural smelling citrus and clean wood. This is a nice scent; not one that I would rush out and buy a full bottle of, but one I would very much enjoy having a decant of. I would suggest the mood would be a casual hot summer night, when one wants something light be with also a bit of something a bit more substantial.

Sandalwood & Citrus = yum!

Santalum Slivers notes: Sandalwood, Musk, Vetiver, Cedar, Cucumber, Hay, Pepper, Rose, Bergamot, Italian Lemon, Orange and Grapefruit

This fragrance is a standout for a sandalwood and citrus mix. Unisex for sure, both myself and significant other wears this one. I'm a sandalwood lover, so this certainly makes my enjoy! list. Opens out the gate with sandalwood and slides seamlessly into a woodsy- citrus. Pepper is not strong, just a nuance, and the rose just adds a kiss of flower. Still, most outrightly detected is the sandalwood - citrus. mmm-mmmm-mmm

Pros: Lots of sandalwood!
