    But why isn't it listed yet? I've had mine a week and I'm dying to review it and see what others think. It's good by the way.

    Originally launched in collaboration with the celebrity burlesque performer Dita Von Teese, I’m sorry to report that there is nothing particularly scandalous or heretical in Scandalwood, just the by now all-too-familiar cocktail of woody aromachemicals. I did not perceive any of the listed notes of orris butter, Bulgarian rose, or Mysore sandalwood. There may be a hint of scandal to be found in the brand’s carefully engineered marketing, which asserts that Heretic is an artisanal and “all natural” line, proving yet again that “natural” is a term devoid of any real meaning in contemporary perfumery, since it is clear to my nose that Heretic is, at best, using natural isolates and molecules rather than making enfleurages of flower petals or tincturing oud chips.

    Scandalwood is probably best appreciated as a candle for the hipster home. Que escándalo!, Scandalwood is available as the “world’s first striptease candle,” with a heat sensitive illustration of Ms. Von Teese that disrobes as the candle burns.

    Wore this yesterday. I liked it. I have to re-wear it - yes it's not anything like Mysore sandalwood and there is a synthetic element to it (which is kind of funny since they're trying so hard in the marketing to talk about 'naturals'), but the overall smell is great.

    I do *not* think it smells like the original Dita Von Teese, in my opinion.
