    The most synthetic and fake Sandalwood in the entire quest. There is an alright fragrance here, heck the drydown I might even call "nice" but the opening is so full of extreme amounts of black pepper and synthetic Sandalwood that it ruins any chance for me. On first spray you are overwhelmed with pepper, fake Sandalwood, and cypress. I'd actually consider this

    The reason I picked this fragrance up to try was due to people saying it is really similar to Le Labo Santal 33. Let me get that out of the way first: I don't see a big similarity between the two. I actually like this one better. It opens with a very green cucumber note and a woodsy papery note. I don't get s lot of Sandalwood in it, to me this gives off much more of a (as the name would imply) paper

It dominates the fragrance throughout the life of it and makes most of the other notes hard to pick up. Somewhere deep down I do pick up some spices and some woods. Also the musk is countered by something that helps try to smooth
