Maybe it's just my skin or maybe my nose, but when I apply a fragrance with sandalwood that is about all I smell despite any other notes. That's part of why I love the simplicity of Keiko Mecheri's Bois de Santal, I don't feel like I'm missing out on other notes when there are so few in the first place. When sandalwood is all I smell from Al Oudh by L'Artisan, I feel much more disappointed. I prefer Mecheri's also because it is a bit softer, smoother. This scent lasts on me all day long, though with limited sillage.
A sweet floral that unlike other tuberose scents manages to stay a few steps ahead of pungent fancy Vegas bathroom freshener. It is a powerful scent, but very pretty at the same time. I don't care much for tuberose so I wouldn't wear it myself, but on a lovely lady with pearls I can see myself completely enamored.
My coworker has this delightful fragrance and unfortunately some was sprayed on me. Smells primarily of charcoal grill, not really burger. Not that bad, but nothing I'd choose to smell.
I want to love this scent, because I can smell the basis for something wonderful. The fragrance strength is so weak though that I have to fight to distinguish the notes, and then fight to smell it at all in just an hour. So sad. What I do smell when I can is lovely though.
I searched for something redeemable in the opening....and I could sense hints of earthy notes to tame the candy sugary beast....but then they were lost, swallowed whole by syrupy candy.
The dry down is much more pleasant, when the sandalwood peaks through the syrup, but overall I felt very displeased with the fragrance.
