    Default Original Santal or Tom Ford to get in a blind-buy?

    Im buying blind a Tom Ford For Man or a Original Santal.

    Its a tester at www.fragrancex.com, so its not soooo expensive (63 bucks for Original Santal 2,5oz or 39 bucks for Tom Ford 1,7oz, price of a regular commercial)
    So im not gambling that much (wich i personally love ^^)

    Whats the best?

    Remembering, i LOVE long-lasters and silage offenders.
    And really dont like dry fougeres and family (Azzaro, Polo, Kouros)
    Love the oriental and gourmands (Le Male, Rochas Man)


    Ps: OS REALLY are close to Joop! ?
    I like joop, but already have one, and i dont believe that something will last more than Joop...

    Original Santal. No, it's not Joop! Lots of basenoters will argue about this match-up. OS is one of my real favorites. Not the highest-quality scent, but I find it distinctive and pleasant when I'm in the mood for sweet and spicy. Very nice packaging, too. Ford - just hasn't grabbed me yet. And I keep trying to like Tom Ford scents. Probably just haven't found the right one.

    I prefer Tom Ford for Men over Original Santal. But from your description of what you are looking for, Original Santal would be the better option.

    TF For Men is inoffensive, and does not stand out in the same way that his Private line does. It's a very safe blind buy, probably.
    Looking for Hermessence Ambre Narguile and for TFPB Moss Breches (50ml bottle), willing to pay in cashdollars. PM me!

    Tom Ford is safe, Original Santal is better.

    Tom Ford is for wearing to work, Original Santal is for a crowded club on a night out.

    Sums up my thoughts, too. I get pretty wicked sillage with OS; TF suits me better.

    Do not blind buy Original Santal. You might like it, but IMO it`s to "girly" and candy-sweet.

    I really dont care for the girly.
    I use Cacharel Amor Tentation, Fleur du Male, CK Be, all very very close to feminine, and i dont care if i like the smell.

    I care much more for the lasting and silage.

    Then I think Original Santal will fit you perfect ;-)

    Except if anyone find something better to me at www.fragrancex.com with the same price of Original Santal 2,5oz tester , thats will be my next niche blind-buy fragrance.

    For what it's worth: I would NEVER blind-buy ANYTHING by Creed. Sorry, I've not been impressed by a single one of their fragrances.
