    Default Strong winter scent with sandalwood and can you check if my Aventus is legit?

    Hi, this is my first post. I was looking for a strong winter scent with sandalwood and can y'all check if my Aventus is legit?
    I also want to know what y'alls favorite scent with a dominant vanilla is.

    Batch number : A42B12R01.

    Since you already own Creed, I suggest Original Santal as a strong sandalwood scent.

    I have Original Santal, the Sandalwood is pretty weak and it smells like dresser sheets, not that I mind. I just wanted a strong sandalwood note.

    I believe you meant B13 instead of B12... but yes, it's real. Dunno about the other question, but the two above are probably solid recs.

    You should try Serge Lutens Santal de Mysore, it's quite strong.

    But my favorite would be Chanel Egoiste.

    I don't wear it but remember Chanel Egoiste as a full bodied sandalwood scent.

    Chanel Egoiste. Grab the vintage EDT or some concentree. Current formulation isn't bad, just not as strong sadly. That could all change though according to the sandalwood series that was posted on here.

    Egoiste is a great sandalwood.
    Tiffany for men is also fantastic.

    I'll recommend something I just got. Costume National Homme. To me, the sandalwood stands head and shoulders above the other notes.

    Yesterday I opened my bottle of Chanel Bois des Iles pure parfum and wore it for the first time. Gorgeous stuff, and the "mother" of Egoiste.

    Original Santal is hardly a sandalwood scent to begin with.

    Egoiste has been reformulated, you hardly get sandalwood in it, Bois de Iles by Chanel, Tam Dao EDP are good options. If your looking for a Mysore (Indian) Sandalwood, CDG Wonderwood, Montale Dark Aoud, Pal Zileri have that.
