    Default creed bois de santal

    this is some seriously heady stuff. i'm wondering if the sandalwood in this is mysore? i've never encountered a sandalwood that is as rich as what's in BdS, so i figured i should ask.

    thanks!

    It's likely a combination of Mysore, Vanuatu, and Australian, as well as a large dose of Ambergris giving that contrasting light freshness to the deep, rich woody drydown.

    Apply it on fabric for a surprise. days later when the sandalwood finally wanes, it smells slightly of the fresh/spicy aspect of the final gasp of vintage tabarome.

    it's dark, deep and rich like Mysore, less so but still much darker and deeper than Australian, which is lighter, drier, and faintly-spicy-sweet. Vanuatu is the least spicy of the bunch.
