In a previous topic (SOTD Oct. 28) ajmc was asking what Buddahwood was. Well this is a plant/tree from Australia also known as False Sandalwood or Buddah Sandalwood. Its scientific name is Eremophila mitchellii.
Just thought to share this.
« L'odeur de rose, faible, grâce au vent léger d'été qui passe, se mêle aux parfums qu'elle a mis.»
[ Paul Verlaine ]
"You can ignore reality, but you can't ignore the consequences of ignoring reality." - Ayn Rand
"I hold it that a little rebellion now and then is a good thing, and as necessary in the political world as storms in the physical...It is a medicine necessary for the sound health of government." - Thomas Jefferson
Buddhawood - although a woody note, is very very different from sandalwood.
It is darker in colour - and in scent.
Has a much less subtle aroma than sandalwood, it's drier and with a hint of smoky note.
It's really gorgeous!
In Dior Addict I can smell a bit of Buddha wood in the base. If you can detect a woody note at the base of this perfume, and manage to discern it from the other notes - Buddha wood it is!
