Reviews of Santal Royal

Heavy medicinal oud+rose combo. Very familiar if you've smelled any Montale although this isn't quite as powerful, thankfully. However, it's no slouch, quite persistent. Drydown calms down and dries out, not as loud but pretty much the same scent if you stick your nose right on skin.

There are many fruity notes listed but I don't get any of that. Just a dry, oud-rose.

Projection and longevity are both really good.

This is one of the best things I have ever smelled.
I was wondering around the perfume section in Debenhams, trying everything I've recently read about (Angel, Pure Poison, Candy) and getting more and more disappointed. Everything was too sweet, too tacky.
I saved Geurlain for last, as always. Tried the petite robe noire range (meh) and Mon Guerlain, and the aqua allegorias.
Finally, I noticed this black display, right in the middle. I hadn't tried it at first because I assumed it was a men's only fragrance, but I sniffed the cap and was entirely blown away. Complex, dark, sexy, woody, comforting. It's heavy as anything, but I think it suits hot weather. It smells like morocco in the heat of summer. Delicious.
I haven't been this impressed since Shalimar. And I LOVE that it isn't gender specific.

Yuck - I mostly get a fruity musk up top that wouldn't be out of place among the least interesting picks at the Macy's men's counter. After a while it becomes a muted rose-oud accord that gets done better elsewhere.

Quite lovely!

I'm not sure what I was expecting. I suppose not much, knowing this would not, and could not contain any Mysore Sandalwood. But Wasser did something rather nice with this, and it works, at least for me.

The opening is bright, and the perfect balance of jasmine and neroli. It never gets heavy, but it's enough for indolic lovers to get a nice sniff or two before giving way to the gorgeous rose (and wow...this really is NICE) and Cinnamon! And it is DELIGHTFUL! Oh this combo is just dazzling! I can't wait for my husband to smell this on me!

The dry-down, is a long, languid, resinous wrap in beauty and sensuality. Definitely FBW, and most certainly worthy of a colored Bee Bottle!

Here we have a doomed perfume by every single reviewer and critic. I criticize the responsible bodies behind this. This, I mean the movement which fruit is Santal Royal.

This perfume has a yummy way of oud and sandalwood and is a tribute to Arabian perfume taste which Guerlain, seems, has stubbornly resisted to join but the money Arabs pay would tempt a monk where sandalwoods grow! So with haste Wasser and Guerlain get involve to draw the money in the most profitable time and place, as the house had done by the release of Samsara back in days.

The first impression every time I try Santal Royal is this is not Guerlain. For the sake of whatever you will, which Guerlain perfume smells this cloying?! It is so funny like the final presentation project of a bachelor who prepared it just last night before presentation in school. Totally, unfinished, raw, solid, linear, and…. and quite tempting and promising by appetizing atmosphere added to the opening to charm on.

Guerlian describes "we drew inspiration from the treasure of the east: sandalwood". Let me assure that the treasure of east is not a material of perfumery. It's introversion that west still could not approach unless maestro perfumers as Serge Lutens and Lorenzo Villoresi.

The problem with Oud is that like Immortelle, when used in any appreciable amount it tends to dominate the whole fragrance. I was hoping that Guerlain would create a sandalwood to die for, matching the now long gone 'Sandalwood' by Floris. That fragrance used Mysore when it was relatively cheap and not subject to restrictions so I can't blame Guerlain entirely for this rendition. Marrying it with oud wasn't going to work for pure sandalwood lovers though.
'Oud Royal' would have been a better less misleading name imo.
The fragrance itself is lovely though -rich, resinous, fruity, long lasting and gloriously smooth.
Love the Black Bee bottle.
