Santos de Cartier is a smoothly masculine blend of refined woods and spices. Fresh lavender, basil, and bergamot fashion a clean, citrusy start over a daring trio of warm nutmeg, taut juniper and fiery cumin. Patchouli and vetiver continue the spicy rush in the base, braced by polished sandalwood and bright cedar.

2.7 out of 5
Too much of an old man smell
Age: 35 to 44
Skin type: Oily
Too intense and smarmy
Lesson learned. Avoid the colognes for myself marked "intense". Smells like something an overbearing corporate raider would wear meeting his daughter's friends for the first time.
Strong Decent Smell
Pungent but not too overpowering, lasts for roughly 1hr. 3.2/5 from me
This scent us old man cologne if there ever was one. Its way to strong and absolutely horrible. Too bad, I was really looking forward to this since I like several others by Cartier.
Not even to my worst enemy
This scent is too strong not subtle. It smells like an old man in a club trying to act young. You would gas everyone out if you used this in an office setting. I would never recommend this...NEVER!!! I wouldn’t recommend it to my worst enemy even though I would be able to smell him from a mile away.
I like this scent! It was warm and musky. My man even said I smelled good lol
Age: 55 to 64
Skin type: Normal
Didn't like scent. Too bitter
It smells old or ruined for some reason. Anticipating better experience with next one.
Age: 55 to 64
Skin type: Combination
SANTOS DE CARTIER.
REALLY LOVE THIS SCENT !!
Age: 45 to 54
This just smells like disappointment to me.
I rarely do a review but I just couldn't hold back after that assault on my olfactory center. Not masculine. Too heavy on the pachouli. This one was not worth the time it took to spray and not worth taking up a position on my queue for 14 bucks. I wanted to give this one a zero but the lowest rating you can give is one start - which is undeserved. Disappointing. Then again, this is the whole point of Scentbird. I'd rather find out that it's a total clunker for 14 bucks than pay full price for a full bottle and have to live with it.

This scent first stage is extremely strong and gave me a headache. Would not recommend
It was ok
It was ok. I liked how it smelled after about 2 hours. The initial smell was blah but the scent after lingering for a while was much better for me
This is not a BAD scent. It's not great either. The smell of this on my skin kinda reminds me of a spicy babypowder kind of thing. Althought I dont 'love' it, I dont mind wearing it either. It's very office like, or maybe church-ish. I wouldnt go on a date with this, but at the office, it's not so bad. -I wouldnt pay more than the sample $15 bucks for it though.
Smells like a grandma
The smell reminds me of an elderly lady. I tried giving it to one of my sisters and even they didnt like the very obvious feminine scent

Great scent! Barely a skin scent Longevity-very poor Projection-none
Smells like an old pimp... Pierre Cardin days..
And you like Pierre Cardin? That explains your dissatisfaction.
Nasty Old Dude Scent
Even my dad is too young for this one... think the 70+ crowd. It's serious grandpa in a smoking jacket territory.
This scent should be banned. It was aweful!!
Wayyyy to feminine
Should not be in the guys section.
I have been using Cartier for many years and I never get tired of this very masculine cologne.
I did not like this cologne at all. It sprayed on very strong, smelling like an old man. No complements from the ladies
Didn't Give It a Second Chance
In my opinion, this scent is more for gentlemen in their 60's or older. I tried to get my husband to wash it off. Neither of us were a fan.
Not a fan of this scent
I've only used this scent once and my wife immediately told I smell like an old man. It's not terrible, just not for me.
Regale and elegance at it's best
The soft smell that comes on powerful but slowly fades into a Joop Homme smell with scent of soft baby powder. I would recommend wearing this if you want to look and smell like a billionaire on a private jet. This is a very high class cologne and I love it
The scent is like nothing I have or would of bought, but it smells great on my skin and I would definitely get it again!
Smelled like old man with a hint of nursing home. I wish I could return it. I sprayed it once and haven’t used it since. I’m glad I’m only 40 and didn’t waste my social security check on this one. If your looking to get Bea Arthur in the sack this colognes for you
Too strong for me
I would wear this only if going out. more on the masculine side
It was ok...kinda smelled like an older gentleman frangrance. Grateful I didn’t buy a regular sized bottle.
Very spicy and woodsy initially, the lavender and coconut definitely give this dry-down a complete transformation into a sweet calming scent. This a very strong cologne, I would definitely say it's for the more mature age range. The scent is long lasting and you don't need more than one spray to last you 6-8 hours.
kind of an old guy smell. Not really a fan.
Classic but old
I know this is a go to classic but it smells a little old. Too musky for my taste
On my skin, the Basil note and a powdery Lavender note was all I could smell
Mixed with my chemistry this one became very feminine smelling, the Basil and a powdery Lavender was very strong and didn't smell very good. It may work well on someone else but for me, 1 time use is all I can do. Sorry
more of a subtle but very present scent. Not the usual generic male cologne smell. Very pleased with it.
Horrible scent. Not Masculine. I smelled like an old woman giving out hugs at Sunday Service
Smells strong at first, after it wears off a bit it smells really good. I like this cologne for work or something business related.
I love it. So casual yet classy.
This is my first perfume. I really like it. I don't think it would be for everyone because it has some strong notes but does smooth out creates a beautiful aura.
Yes don't like it makes me smell like an old man
This is the best thing I ever done by ordering this way I vet to try what I want
Good solid fragrance for work or a business meeting.
YUCK! This is awful. I can't think of any reason anyone would want to smell like this.
not feeling this one at all. makes me feel old and sleazy
Didn't care for this sent way to floral for me. Though it's a quality product it's just not for me
Too many strong scents at once. Smells like a box full of incense that's been sitting for a year. Strong... and somehow of nothing.
I bit middle of the road for me. I don't love it or hate it. Has a strong initial presence but not necessarily in a good way.
I received my first scent today, and am not impressed with it. I would never buy Kenneth Cole it is only passable as a day fragrance. I ve added some new preferences to my list for the future.
After initial application, the scent is very strong, almost overwhelming. The strength fades very quickly, which is the only reason I was able to continue to wear this scent. Once the initial strength fades, the scent is subtle enough to enjoy.
AMAZING! Woody and rich, soft and elegant.
A sultry and extremely luxe scent that transitions well from the office to an evening out at the opera or ballet. Classy and sexy all at once.
This scent is very sweet, strong and smokey. Not a favorite of mine, very reminiscent of a scent that would have been popular decades ago. I can only think of a few occasions where this scent would fit. Overwhelming, not subtle and not an everyday scent if you use a full spray. It's just too potent. cut it to a half and keep it from being too concentrated in one area and it works.
too heavy. smelled like an old timer who drinks english breakfast every morning
smell more like a woman's fragrance than a man
At first, I was really excited to receive this cologne and enjoy the scent. However, once I did receive it and actually smelled it. I wasn't too happy about it. This scent is more for an older person I'd say, 40+. It has a strong smell, this is definitely something my grandpa would wear. Definitely will not be adding this one to my queue in the future.
Has a kind of older man scent, wouldn't recommend for younger people
A very strong old-school fragrance - very much lavender and oakmoss, with a hint of sandalwood. Not a bad scent, quite masculine, but for me it's really not wearable until it after it dries down a 2-3 hours. Just not my cup of tea.
Was just way too strong to wear, and too feminine
Very strong and manly. Tones of wood are highlighted. Ideal fall/winter fragrance.
it's stronger than I thought it would be. I like the scent a lot.
I love the scent of this fragrance get a lot of compliments.
reminds me of someone or something in my past. couldn't put my finger on it. never totally got into it. ordered a Scentbird ala carte to have something i would enjoy more.
