Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

Top Note : Sap Notes, Pallida Iris, Undergrowth Notes
Middle Note : Vetiver Root, Gaïac Wood, Woody-Accord, Chocolate
Base Note : Musk, Ambered Mosses, Sandalwood, Rockrose Labdanum
A sleeper. Goes on kind of soft and then slowly unveils its charm. A bit of a gourmand scent, with a mellow chocolate note, it is mainly green, slightly floral, and woody. The list of notes reads a little like an evasive suspect being interrogated by the bad cop, not wanting to be too specific: sap notes, undergrowth notes, woody notes — who knows what these things might really be? The fact is, however, that they work. Some think this rather too pale, but its beauty is in the subtlety of composition and in the balance of the elements. To me, it's just lovely and very smooth, suave.
Yr good bud,

Wanted to have a Woody Wednesday
Creed Original Santal
Sandalwood is a staple note in perfumery and as such there many are fragrances around which sandalwood is used as the core. In 2005, Creed released Original Santal which was said to be a modern interpretation of a scent Creed created for the Emperor of Austria Hungary, Franz-Josef back in the 19th century.
Original Santal is a good example of what Creed released in the early part of the naughts. Many of these fragrances used high-quality ingredients but they seemed to have an almost depressing linearity to them.
The top of Original Santal begins promisingly with a nice fresh mix of citrus and spice. The citrus is a juicy mandarin accompanied by cinnamon and ginger. The heart is woody, as one would expect from a fragrance called Original Santal, but the dominant wood is not sandalwood, it’s cedar. The sandalwood is present but the cedar overwhelms it and keeps it from ever having a firm grasp of the proceedings. The mix of vanilla and amber in the base make sure the sandalwood never gets the chance.
Original Santal has good longevity and average sillage.
Perfume composition was probably more straight-forward in Emperor Franz-Josef’s day but it still seems like something made for an Emperor should be a little more bold than Original Santal is.
Have a Wonderful Wednesday everyone.
