Reviews of Santo Incienso

Santo Incienso is an incense and woods scent, dry and bright, rather than anything dark or brooding. I do smell hedione, and the incense accord is transparent, airy, with a tinge of vague sweetness. It is different from other incense/woods scents I've tried, largely due to the accord being different. I liked the accord initially, however, it is largely linear, and it grows tiresome by the dry down when it is humming on around five or six hours. I like potent scents, however, in this case the dry down is more about dry, sharp, synthetic woods rather than something more interesting. I also find a note alluding to pink pepper, initially, though it may not be among the listed notes. Sillage is close but consistent.

Santo Incienso is eventually an underwhelming affair, and only two factors distinguish it from run of the mill woody-incense scents: the accord is somewhat novel (I have no idea what palo santo is supposed to smell like), and it is quite potent. Otherwise, it is nowhere near as nuanced or distinguished as some of the other incense/woods compositions (Comme des Garçons 2 Man and numerous Amouages). This is a case where the perfume could have been much more well done with more careful attention to the dry down, especially if it was more nuanced and less sharp/synthetic. To quote Luca Turin, The Different Company isn't that different any more, and after wearing Santo Incienso one can understand why.

Santo Incienso is a light green cedar and palo santo fragrance that breathes an effervescent ozone lightness to create a shimmering and lasting incense presence. This is the elevating ocean wind off the Pacific blown inland through giant Sequoias, is what I think of here so I am convinced that Palo Santo forest by an oceanside might be an inspiration. There is a simplicity about this light green shining woods that is pleasant to smell and lasting. The note combination reminds me of aroma of cedar and palo santo used as a base in many Fueguia 1833 fragrances - might this be a South American regionally specific note? A soft musk keeps the base light without smoke or powder, and hedione adds a sanguine pineapple organic spritz to the green aspects. This is not a deep bell toned incense but is the constant ocean breezes whipping sparkling chimes that dance through a palo santo "holy wood" woodland. A refreshingly light incense!
