Wow, that's a lot of money to throw at a blind buy, though I can't say I haven't done the same thing... I hope you do like it.
If you like sandalwood and like really strong scents, you'll probably like Egoiste. I love it, but it took me about 15 years to finally appreciate it. If you had asked me before pulling the trigger, I would have said don't do a blind buy with Egoiste. Let us know what you think of it.
