    I think Truefitt & Hill Sandalwood Cologne is nice. I smell it a lot at my barber and it has some nice citrus for Summer. I find it more fresh than woody. It doesn't get a lot of love but everytime I test it I enjoy it immensely

    Blue Santal by Comme des Garcons! It’s like a frozen Wonderwood.

    Avoid wearing sandalwood fragrances in summer: they often smell like sweat (Tam Dao, Idole de Lubin, Santal Royal, etc)

    This. You might be able to get away with TF Santal Blush in the summer, it's a bit lighter and feminine.

    I had never considered that.

    Came here to recommend a couple that I enjoy: Original Santal or Green Irish Tweed.

    You're not wrong, but that's not a universal fact; it really depends on the kind of sandalwood note used in a fragrance and how it's framed by the perfumer.

    Truefitt & Hill is very underrated. I enjoy their 1805 immensely, which is also contains sandalwood in addition to geranium and lavender as the key players.

    I wear TF Santal Blush in the summer and get no sweat action from it. Also give Santal edt from Floris a sniff- it's gorgeous and wears really light.

    Bleu de Chanel Parfum has a very prominent sandalwood note and smells amazing overall, and its a great warm weather fragrance.

    Some of you have some funny ideas about what constitutes a suitable fragrance for summer, or your summers are particularly mild. Egoiste? Original Santal? Both are pretty cloying as soon as it gets warmer, and many would argue that there’s no sandalwood in OS.
    1. No, never blind buy (I do, but do as I say, not as I do. I'm taking no responsibility for your fragrance gambling).
    2. Get them both. You're a Basenoter and you know you're going to end up purchasing them both eventually.
    3. Yes, it has been reformulated.
    4. Looking for a signature scent? You've come to the wrong place.

    I get a nice sandalwood in the drydown of LIDG PH (EDT) and think it’s great in the summer. Santal Massoia is also a good choice (figgy, airy sandalwood).

    Edit - agree with Darjeeling above re Egoiste and Original Santal. Vintage Egoiste has potential to be cloying in the winter let alone the summer!

    +1 on this. Nice citrus for the warmer weather, and dries down into a nice sandalwood.
