    This is Fig. There's a whole lot of notes listed but Fig dominates throughout the life of this. This is not a Sandalwood fragrance. There is a "wood" note noticeable but nothing distinctly Sandalwood here. There's also some florals that hand around but let's not kid ourselves, this is figs and wood. The fragrance itself is a nice Fig scent though I've smelled better ones (Fico di

    *note: my sample was said to be of the vintage Egoiste, but I cannot verify.*

    In what feels like a developing trend in Sandalwood fragrances this merges sweet notes and Sandalwood. It feels very much in the same genre as GFT Santal, Floris Santal, etc. Had I smelled this in a vacuum I might have rated it higher, however, after having smelled so many that do a similar thing I felt Egoiste

    Xerjoff Richwood is great. I do have some apprehension just because I don't get a ton of Sandalwood in it.

The other reason is as it dries down it turned slightly powdery on my skin, not enough to make me hate it but I did

    I specifically gave this a half rating because I wanted to slot it right in between Geo F Trumper and Fragonard. I think this is better than Trumper Santal in pretty much every way while I still like Fragonard Santal better. Compared to Trumper I see Floris as very similar, but while Trumper has a very exaggerated opening, Floris feels much better blended and calmed down. If you are looking for that

    *disclaimer: I own multiple bottles of Santal Imperial. I will be selling bottles of this in the future. I can assure you that I would not compromise my integrity by giving an excessively positive review to try and sell a couple bottles of cologne. This is my honest opinion of the fragrance. I did however want to make the reader aware so they can determine for themselves how much to trust my
