    Interesting. I'm not very good at picking out individual notes, but don't remember getting a distinctive sandalwood note from GIT. Sharp you say? I always thought of Mysore sandalwood as creamy and soft - nutty even- but maybe I just don't know Mysore sandalwood.

    I don't get sandalwood in it.. I do in HIMALAYA.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    The sandalwood in Green Irish Tweed is a synthetic called Polysantol, made by Firmenich.

    I can smell the sandalwood in BdP more than Himalaya.

    A huge number of scents have a sandalwood note but don't deserve to be called "sandalwood fragrances." The new formulation of Samsara is awful (IMO), for example, and that was bottled by Guerlain! Whatever molecule that gets called "sandalwood" and may be in GIT is minimal, and certainly not sharp. It's the violet leaf !

    I don't get a lot of sandalwood in Green Irish Tweed. I think most would agree its the violet leaf which I get a lot of.
    Imagine there were no hypothetical situations.
