It's warm, smooth, wears close and smells like real Mysore Sandalwwod Oil to me. If you know real Mysore oil you will be pleasantly surprised, if you don't you may rethink your idea of what Sandalwood actually smells like. IMO this is not a 'composition using Sandalwood (or a facsimile of allusion to it) as the above mentioned fragrances - it is more or less a base oil, probably lightly tweaked. It's my one and only 'layering' item, I sometimes add a bit when I wear Santal Mysore. I'm glad to have it in my collection but then I used to buy Mysore Oil in the 70s when you could get the real thing so it has a certain nostalgia attached.
PS Since above I have chatted with one or two other members and we are of the same opinion re: my 'lightly tweaked' comment. My guess is that a touch of synthetic sandalwood may have been added to help with the bit of added projecttion and longevity that this has compared to pure Mysore Oil, one member said he thought maybe there is a hint of saffron in there for 'brightness'. Still don't know - whatever it is does not interfere with the genuine Mysore scent at all, simply enhances it.
