    It is very close to creed's original santal. In fact, I only tried santal and never bothered purchasing the bottle because the MB Individuel is so much more affordable.

    Hm. I have a sample of OS and sprayed MBI at JCPenny a few days ago. I felt MBI was a bit sweeter. I'll have to give it another spray.

    I got redberries on a smooth suede base. I use to own at and do like it. My issue was that not matter how much I sprayed, it remained thin and airy. A nice fragrance but I suppose I was looking for more kick.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    I actually like MB Individuel a little better than OS, I know I like the price better, just sprays a little light in comparison....

    Isn't OS a fragrance for both men and women? What would be a more affordable option for women? I see that MB Individuel has both a male and female version. I am assuming the MBI for men is the one that is similar to OS? Thanks!

    Love the stuff, especially since you can find it for $19.99 @ 50ml at Marshall's, TJ Max and the like.

    Months after reading this thread, I finally came across someone selling Individuel.

    It didn't strike me as anywhere near 100% identical to Original Santal.

    I like Original Santal, but was not particularly fond of Individuel.

    I received a bottle today and sprayed the back of my hand a couple of hours ago. Very light and fresh and slightly spicy. I really like this scent. It seems that it will have a good longevity and projection. It was a blind buy based upon basenote reviews and I'm glad I pulled the trigger on this one. It's a keeper for sure! I bought it on ebay for $22.49 for a 75 ml bottle. Makes me curious about other Mont Blanc fragrances. I really like this fragrance!!

    By looking at my username, you'd think I've been wearing this stuff for years, but I didn't own a bottle until recently. I'd never even heard of it when I joined basenotes!

    I agree with the praise for it. Mont Blanc Individuel is a great bargain. I even prefer it over Original Santal. And though I haven't scanned through this thread yet, I have to assume people pointed out that Individuel was released a few years before Original Santal, meaning, Individuel is the real original

    Just got a decant of Original Santal today and sprayed Individuel on one arm with OS on the other. While they are very similar, I actually preferred Individuel, it's seems a little fresher and more wearable.
