    This stuff is legit guys. It reminds me a lot of Sacred Woods that I tested yesterday but it has a bit more cedar in it and doesn't open as weirdly. It opens with cedar and Sandalwood, a bit of incense, and a slight peppery note. Not smooth or creamy Sandalwood, the cedar makes it come off spicy. As it dries down the Sandalwood and cedar take center stage while in the background there

    This is a good scent guys. Sandalwood right up front from the start and lasting through the life of the fragrance. The reason this is only a 9 on the scent is the opening. For the first maybe 5-10 minutes there's an off note somewhere it in. Almost like a slightly sour green note. It's not super pronounced but for me it was noticeable. Other than that everything about this scent is really good.

    This is a complex fragrance. Probably one of the most complex scents I've smell in a long time, if not ever. First let me get this out of the way, yes I smell Sandalwood here. No it's not dominant and it doesn't really become noticeable until in the drydown - but at least I pick it up. Now with that said - I like GFT Sandalwood. Boy does it open up crazy. I read the comments this morning

    Nutmeg and musk. This fragrance is pretty linear. It opens with a strong nutmeg note and florals with musk in the background. As it dries down the musk Starts to come to the front and the nutmeg and florals mellow. It's not an outright stank musk but it is noticeable and not to my liking. The fragrance smells dated. Yet again another fragrance and I just don't smell Sandalwood in it. There's

    A not so good woody oriental. Definitely shouldn't be considered Sandalwood at all. This opens with lemons, tobacco, and something like cumin combined with florals, a herbal green note, and way in the back cedar. Maybe my dislike for this isn't really founded. I give it credit for being complex and well blended. But this just isn't a Sandalwood fragrance. Heck, the woods aren't even in this very
