Description
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.

Horrible
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.

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.

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

EHHHHHHhhhhhhhhhh
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

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.

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.

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

Yuck
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

Very Heady
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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.
