Deep and smooth sandalwood with creamy cocoa
First up a caution, it takes a bit and a few priming spritzes to settle from transit/storage, if you get it and think 'wow this is just shouting smokey sandalwood incense!' don't despair. At first I couldn't even smell the vanilla, but I think it was just old juice in the nozzle. I gave it a week and cam back and god, this is delicious. It's not listed in the notes but the Sandalwood and Vanilla almost smell paired with a milk chocolate or cocoa note and then vanilla-caramel comes in underneath in such a cozy way without being cloying or "sweet home candle" like. The spices are soft not "zesty" like a cinnamon zinger, or medicinal or sour like clove, more like a pinch of nutmeg or mace with maybe a bit of allspice and cardamon. And the sandalwood itself is very smooth and round, like a real green sandalwood comb i have, not a dry dusty sandalwood (though there is a hint of the papery ceder in the dry down from the base) or the powdery-pumpkiny "body lotion" style sandalwood, but sweet and aromatic. This one sits close, which I personally appreciate because sandalwood is a divisive scent so I appreciate that I and someone sitting close can enjoy it but I won't bother anyone who may or may not like it. It's a very 'cool weather cozy' scent and it's perfect for November imo. If you cared about "when" to wear your perfumes I think i'd call this an afternoon/night/after work scent, but I love it so much rn I'm spritzing whenever lol. My only complaint is that the longevity seems variable. At first it seemed to last all day and even to the next day, and lately it's only lasting a 2-3 hours. Perhaps my chemistry shifted or something, it doesn't even make sense as it's lasting *less* now I'm adding moisturizer. Who knows, you may have to play around. It probably depends on the person.
