    Default Is there a dry down anything close to Xerjoff's Richwood, sandalwood dry down ?

    This dry down is unbelievable, with that rich mysore sandalwood. I find the dry down very unique to anything I have tried in the past. Unfortunately it takes some hours for the patchouli and rose to burn off leaving that dry grainy, lively sandalwood. To my nose I prefer mysore sandalwood over any oud that I have tried in the past. This fragrance lasts a good 18 hours on my skin. Its amazing that I have not gotten to this one until last week, for the first time.

    Do you happen to know if they still make this ? I have a bit left from a split ages ago and but I'd love to get some more if possible. That or maybe a bottle of Richwood with the gold plaque. Stone label doesn't smell as nice to me.

    Coromandel and Psychedelique are the closest I've smelled.

    Maybe give Chanel Bois des Iles a try? Also, if you want more straight up Mysore Sandalwood and a smaller amount of supporting notes do check out AbdesSalaam Attar Chillum. Totally agree that a good sandalwood like Mysore beats oud any day.

    Vintage C&E, Vintage Foris, Iunx L'Arbre, CM Tricorn...
    There is also very nice Mysore note separation on PPH after shave (believe it or not, arguable better that the edt for this particular note)
