    Sandalwhat? It's 100% synth there is not a drop of sandalwood oil there


    It has a mysore sandalwood accord, like most sandalwood fragrances do ( Rush, Pal Zileri ). Some do use Australian sandalwood, but they are still amped with synthetic santalol. Santalol is what gives mysore sandalwood its smell. I actually own a tola of Sandalwood Attar which a friend bought from Bangalore, they are pretty similar in smell. I paid 70 dollars for 10 ml , and your getting 100 ml for 120 bucks.
    All CDG fragrances are synthetic, but most are well constructed.

    It's not even about the price. I'm a CDG fan not just perfume line. It's shockingly commercial to me. All I got was strong green cedar with vetiver and pepper.

    The Cedar and ISO-e are in the top and mid notes, but for most of its longevity on most people, it turns into a creamy Sandalwood scent. If you go on fragrantica most do compare it to Rush, the Gucci sandalwood masterpiece. I did not find it commerical at all, as in today's market finding a fragrance which utilizes the Mysore sandalwood accord is increasingly rare.

    Will try to get a sample of this. Sounds pretty good.

    My thoughts exactly, instead I just got the full bottle after reading the notes and a few reviews from trusted noses here. If I don't like it, I'll simply swap or sell. After reading vinramani09's thoughts on it, I'll sleep well tonight and until it arrives

    This scent does not have the best top notes, and I think lot of people naturally do dismiss it because of that, but once the drydown reveals itself, its truly an enjoyable and wonderful fragrance. The plus side is, for anyone craving Gucci Rush, this is a great replacement.

    It's an all-season frag for me. I have no problems rockin' it in the 100+ days. I think you're gonna dig it.

    Revisited this one a year later and while the opening is quite pleasing, the drydown is unacceptably synthetic, blaring sandalwood. If there's any real Mysore in this, it can't be much.

    It has a sweetness that throws me. I can imagine it being somewhat cloying in hot weather.

    It's not. At least not to me, and it get's crazy hot here.

    I guess my opinion is biased by the fact that it's a scent that doesn't quite do it for me, despite my general love of CdG. In general I'm happy to wear dry woody scents in extreme heat, so it probably works fine if you like the scent in the first place.

    That makes sense to me. If you do not like green eggs and ham on a plane, you probably won't like them on train.

    This is exactly what ruins it for me too. The synthetic sandalwood base is just too much.

    I like it, but this is the only fragrance that a co-worker hated enough to call me out on it and requested not to wear again in the office.

    Got a sample of this recently and wearing it today.

    Bit disappointed overall, quite nice, nothing special and far weaker on me than CdG 2 Man, which I absolutely love. Almost bought this a couple of times based on a quick sniff and small spray when sampling other things but at the moment I'm glad I didn't.
