    I stumbled upon this vintage find on eBay this week & I had to snatch it up to accompany my vintage EdT:

    Vintage extremely-hard-to-find Extract of Mysore Sandalwood Soap by Crabtree & Evelyn

    Thanks Jack. Looking forward to showering with it soon. Hope it hasn't lost too much of the scent - one can never tell with bar soap.

    Yeah, I'm still not sure why there seems to be a lot of ire toward this one. I can see not wanting it if you own DHS and DH, but I don't quite understand why it gets bashed. I've been wearing it for a while now and besides smelling great it also performs really, really well. No qualms whatsoever. A 2014 sleeper pick for sure.
