do you even know what you are talking about? have you even SMELLED Santal Imperial?!?
I would say they smell, no exaggeration, 78% alike. same creamy, tonka-bean, sandalwood, buttery base... with a very small differentiation on the top notes.
I know this because I own Santal Imperial, and have a healthy sample of Vetiver '48. I have one on one wrist, and one on the other, right now smelling them.
They are 78% the same. and I dare anyone to say otherwise.
