Santal Wood fragrance notes

Reviews of Santal Wood

Peppery woods in the beginning. Reminds me of the much cheaper Andy Warhol for men, in which they share the cedar, sandalwood and cardamom notes. It also has similarities with CH 212 Men, sharing the green, peppery opening and musky, incense sandalwood drydown. Finishes with a soft, clean laundry musk, kinda like Body Kouros.

Strong projection and longevity. Just a few sprays lasts 12 hours and projects almost the entire time.

Meh, but not bad. I enjoyed the topnotes, a leafy green smell mixed with generic woods. The sandalwood itself was more a mix of lumber and the sort of "woody" chemical smell you get from a lot of men's designer scents. Eventually, it ended up as that coconutty Australian sandalwood that all the niche lines seem to be using now.

Sandalwood scents are so common that, when I try a new one, I like to imagine what niche it fills. In the case of Santal Wood, I think it may appeal to folks used to designer wood scents who want a sandalwood, but don't care for the old-fashioned sandalwoods that are so common. That being said, if you're looking for top quality, this can't hold a candle to Santal Noble, and I think this is kind of smudged and indirect compared to Le Labo's Santal 33, which does a better job at modern green sandalwood with a crisp clarity and confidence that I'm not getting from Santal Wood.

Really just a "an idea" of sandalwood (in the depth of background). As well as previously pointed out by other reviewers Montale Saltal Wood is a dynamic-sporty (barely) woody (and more properly musky-balmy-spicy) aroma with an initial calonic-salty-citric-aromatic vibe, a typical violet/woods mastering (vaguely powdery and sweeter) central accord and a final boring synthetic (somewhat) transparent soapiness enriched by green fresh elements and diaphanous (somewhat gingery-cardamomish in style) resins. Along dry down the calonic/ozonic metallic vibe disappears leaving place to a soapy-spicy-musky fluidity (vaguely a la Bvlgari Pour Homme Blv but a tad less soapy-spicy and "bombastic"). Not a disaster (a pleasant one on the contrary) but basically a mediocre/conventional aroma with "neither art nor part", over all something surely unworthy the price. For such a type of fragrances I better recommend Canali Men (for a more distinguished and less soapy-spicy solution), Soprani Solo, L'Erbolario Corteccia or (in case you wanna dare with greens containing the soapy spices) Trussardi Action Uomo.

Santal by Montale is a depressing soapy-sweet synthetic sandalwood scent, nothing better than the perfume you obtain after bathing with any "sandalwood" bath soap, unexplicably mixed with a calonic-clean-fresh breeze directly coming from a random pre-2000s designer scent. Basically you pay to smell like someone who bathed in a cheap soap, then scented with a cheap fragrance. The touch of class (...) is a nice load of cashmeran and other preset woods to provide a vague "cozy woodiness" on the base. Now obviously if you run your perfume brand like a fast-food producing scents one after another, these are the results.

Santal Wood is a fresh/aquatic Montale. Not very woody.
Opens with a huge blast of juniper berries and a marine note which is salty.
Dries down to a light and smooth sandalwood base which remains for quite a good amount of time.
Actually i find this fragrance very subtle if compared to other Montale releases.
Sillage and projection are medium. Lasting power is about 6/7 hours in my skin.
Do not expect anything heavy or woody, but a subtle, fresh and elegant scent that may be enjoyable for most of people. Unisex.

Santal Wood is Montale attempting a mainstream male fragrance. It is inoffensive in the opening and has a very generic woodsy/ambery/iso E super thing going on.

It's woody, fresh, sporty, aquatic and my guess is that the majority of people will like it.

It doesn't challenge and feels out of place in the Montale line.

Where it does tie in with other Montales is it's longevity. It lasts forever and this made me bored of it.
