    Add Caswell Massey Sandalwood to that group, it's a "dryer" creamy if that makes sense, but I kind of get that soft creamy feeling from it too

    This is one of several adjectives I really do not like reading in reviews.

    The phrase "creamy sandalwood" is used a lot--and it has never made any sense to me. I've never smelled a sandalwood note before and thought to myself, "Hmmm...that's creamy!"

    Tam Dao, Santal Noble...dry sandalwood--no cream. Cardboardy? Okay, maybe. Rich, deep? Fine.

    Creamy? No.

    Diesel Plus Plus is creamy. But that's because it's supposed to resemble CREAM.

    Chanel Allure Edition blanche is considered a creamy lemon fragrance, and I guess creamy kind of works here because it's like a lemon meringue pie in some ways.

    Lumiere Blanche and Costume National 21 I would also describe as creamy, as they're intented to have 'milk' notes.

    I've always thought Tam Dao had an element of creaminess to it.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    I think Tam Dao EDP is one of the creamiest frags I have smelt. It's amazing...the EDP, the EDT I wouldn't consider as creamy.

    Can you explain what you mean when you use "creamy" as an adjective to describe sandalwood? I think I'm missing something here. When I smell Tam Dao I get 'cardboardy, dry, woody' and sometimes with other sandalwoods a certain nuttiness. But I've never thought of sandalwood as "creamy."

    This post is full of sandalwood fragrances. Maybe I'm anosmic.

    You're asking the wrong person to describe it...I'm not so good at describing fragrances...to me there is a milky coconut accord that just makes it smoother, and, well, creamy. Right after spraying I get dry, cardboardy-ish, and woody, but then as it dries down, within a minute or two, the creaminess comes out to me. I'm probably not making any sense, it just has a smooth, milky feel to it, and that, to me, is creamy. Sorry I don't know how to explain it better.

    Now, with the EDT, I don't get cream, I get dry and woody, not that this is a bad thing, it's just very different to me from the EDP.

    My thought exactly, my concept of creamy is rather different... Tam Dao is a soft/woody/green aromatic and dry scent.

    Golly all this niche, let's go bargain shopping:

    Diesel plus plus - very creamy vanilla and cedar, pleasant one
    Jaguar Vision - Heavy pineapple top that strangely dries down to a creamy pineapple vanilla and fir thing...really pleasant scent as well

    Piguet Visa is creamy to me. So is their Knightsbridge.

    Otherwise, I don't think my sense of "creamy" is similar to what other people are describing. With food and taste, I think of the differences between creamy and not - for example, between a madras curry and a korma, or between a pomarola and an alfredo sauce. Or Jell-O and pudding. It's got something to do with weight, and opacity v. translucence, sharpness v. smooth edges, and other qualities that I'm finding hard to articulate!

    Anyhow, for me this distinction can definitely carry over into perfumes, but I can't think of that many perfumes I'd describe as creamy. Sandalwood alone doesn't necessarily create it, although I can see where other people get that feeling.
