    Extremely Sandalwood, extremely long lasting, more feminine than I'd want personally. This fragrance is really good. It is basically is made up of two things: Sandalwood and florals/fruits. The Sandalwood note is prominent and last throughout. I detect a good bit of Plum (very similar to Vetiver Fatal's Plum note) and this makes the fragrance a good bit sweet. The florals are there to soften

    This one is really good. Sandalwood strong and prominent right from the start. It also does something different with Sandalwood and mixes it with an earthy note.
