    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

    Not Sandalwood. I am convinced that whatever wood note is in there is not Sandalwood and instead the perfumer is using multiple other notes to try and simulate it. I use the word "simulate" in the looses sense possible. There is almost no wood note at all to be found here. Sometime very deep in the background hidden behind powder, and floral, and sweet notes. To my nose this opens

    A weird mixture of leather, cedar, slight bug spray, Sandalwood, and a smoky note. As it dries down the Sandalwood becomes more noticeable but the leather and cedar notes stay strong throughout. There's almost a raw quality to this fragrance, almost sawdust like. If the opening didn't have this green/bugspray type of smell present this would rate much higher. I think the drydown is really good.
