    Default Sandalwood based scents

    Hi,

    Please suggest me some sandalwood based scents that can be used in summers for office use.

    Among the very inexpensive ones: Elizabeth Arden Sandalwood, Zara Sandalo and Crabtree&Evelyn Sandalwood.

    For slightly pricier but high quality sandalwood with rose notes that can still be worn in summer with fewer sprays: Chanel Egoiste.

    Etro's Sandalo.
    I only know the original though.

    I keep singing it's praises, and I'll do it again: Orlov - Star of the Season

    Perhaps a little "formal" or classy for daily office use, but would certainly work.


    Also, Creed - Himalaya works great in the summer, and would fit into an office setting just perfectly.
    Current Summer Favorites:

    1. Xerjoff - Nio
    2. Tom Ford - Rive d’Ambre
    3. Dior - Homme Cologne 2013
    4. The Different Company - De Bachmakov
    5. Armani - Code Sport Athlete
    6. Montale - Aoud Legacy
    7. Dior - Homme Sport 2008
    8. by Kilian - Straight to Heaven
    9. Ermenegildo Zegna - Sicilian Mandarin
    10. Creed - Pure White Cologne

    The most satisfying sandalwood is straight Indian sandalwood oil. Eden Botanicals in the US and Mt Romance in Australia are both very good.

    For a bit more backbone, and longevity, you could try Tam Dao. It has a nice cedar note that adds heft. When I wear this one to work though I only spray one spray at the base of my neck and I'm set for the day. Just the right about of projection.

    There are other good fragrances with sandalwood in them but I count the two aforementioned as reference points, in my limited experience, for sandalwood.

    Perhaps read through a couple of the extensive threads already done, which could help you hone in on one based on your personal tastes.

    Have never seen a mention here but ASQ's Bois de Aoud is the nicest Sandalwood that I have smelled in a while.
    Rich and buttery with only a hint of Aoud way in the background.

    Wonderwood and Santal 33 +1.
    The gorgeous Hindu Grass, but be very very careful if you decide to buy it and assure your bottle won't come leaking. It can be a hit or a total miss.

    The best is the long-lost Creed Bois de Santal. Look for Villoresi Sandalo.

    Sandalwood for an office setting? Something like Chanel Allure Homme Edition Blanche.

    Heavy duty primary sandalwood fragrances are too much for an office setting, IMO.
