    The best spicy (non cedar) sandalwood I've ever tried. Initial application gave me a huge hit of pure sandalwood oil so I had to compare it to the samples I have.

But other times I smelled it and found it pleasant and even, nice, smelling. To be clear: This doesn't smell like a sandalwood fragrance to me.
