    Precious Woods smells like a woodworker's shop, and I mean that in the best possible way. I've spent about a year in a woodworker's shop and the immediately upon spraying this that was the exact imagine this fragrance brought to my mind. Some might even say a "pencil sharper" smell but I don't get any graphite in this. This smells exactly like cut, slightly burnt (due to heat

    Guys this one struck play dirt. Cedar plays a big part in this fragrance too, especially during the opening, so just be warned. If you don't like cedar, this is probably a strong pass for you. It opens up with cedar and Sandalwood. I've seen some people say they couldn't smell Sandalwood, or that it was fake Sandalwood, etc; Well I smelled it directly against my Sandalwood essential oils and

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. As it dries down, yes I can detect some but this is much more of a Rose/patchouli fragrance especially on initial spray. This is the main reason I removed a point from scent. 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
