    Prob like most perfumes. Maybe a little natural beefed up with synths.

    Are you talking about this one

    I use this at times my dad swears by it. It seems to have very high reviews on amazon. Its creamy and incensey , some how this soap melds with the skin to create a very smooth smell. I recommend it!

    Awesome stuff. You will be able to smell it every time you enter the bathroom. Strong warm creamy goodness that makes you feel great summer or winter. From what I have read the ones that are marked "export quality" aren't as strong as the regular ones. Either ways you will enjoy it for sure.

    I have a bunch left over that i need to get back out. I wouldn't use them more than every other day cause they will dry you out. They smell good and clean exceptionally well, i think i'll break one out this morning. I used them before putting on caswell massey sandlewood.

    I used it for yrs in India. then there was a yr late 90's perhaps when their soap caused skin infections / rashes on a majority of users, so I stopped using it...

    I think it is such a waste to throw mysore sandalwood down the drain during a shower. The fraction of sandalwood that actually adheres to your skin is so small.....the investment doesn't pay off. I recommend that you buy a tiny bottle of pure mysore sandalwood oil, and dillute it in a big 6.6oz bottle of TAM DAO. Then you will feel the real power of sandalwood. That is what I did.

    What a coincidence - I have been on a sandalwood kick lately after purchasing a bottle of Tam Dao. I bought this soap last week.

    My feelings: meh. Very strong scent - overpowers my whole bathroom. But the smell doesn't wow me. Seems like cheap dollar store soap with the packaging and texture. The more I use it the better the scent seems to get however (not sure if I am just getting used to it, or if the scent on the outside of the soap is a little different from the inside - as if something leached out?).

    Anyway, want to give it a few more wearings to really have an opinion, but initially, I would rather use normal soap, then go heavy with Tam Dao.

    I will certainly need to look into getting some pure sandalwood oil - that sounds like a good idea.
