3.7 out of 5
Age: 45 to 54
Liked this one not to strong at the beginning and nice dry down
Age: 35 to 44
A nice surprise
I really enjoy this scent. Unique, long-lasting, not overpowering. I feel fresh and cozy when I wear this scent.
Age: 35 to 44
I don’t really care for the scent. The description is accurate but it doesn’t work with my body chemistry I guess.
Age: 55 to 64
A little too sweet
Just a little to sweet. I like more earthy fragrances
Age: 45 to 54
Not great on me
I wanted to like this but I wasn't terribly excited overall....
Age: 35 to 44
Skin type: Oily
ITS A NO!
I was hoping this would give me the musk I was looking for only I ended up with must. We have no chemistry together however it banged on my sister.
Age: 25 to 34
Skin type: Combination
Not for me
I'm more into the woodsier and earthy tones and this one was a little too floral and light for my liking
This scent is EXQUISITE! It is light, yet mysterious. Such a beautiful offering of sandalwood. I figure it won't last long, since it is an Eau de Toilette, but it will be worth reapplying!
Age: 35 to 44
Skin type: Normal
I would consider this a unisex scent although I feel it would be better for a man. Very musky. Love the sandalwood scent but a little too overpowering for me. Outdoor/woodsy to me.
Clean and mild
I like sandalwood and musky woods smells. This one has a crisp attritubute. Scent is mild and not overpowering. I feel it’s a unisex scent and will give to my husband.
It is kind of strong, which is my reason for not giving 5 stars as sometimes that easily gives me a headache. But i do love the smell!
This is my new favorite fragrance. Not overwhelming nor does it fade too fast.
I LOVE MY 1ST ORDER THE SCEBT SMELLS SO GOOD. ITS A MILD SCENT. THANK YOU. WAITING ON MY 2ND SCENT**😁
Not for me
I was excited to try this scent as I am in love with the centuries almond by caswell Massey. I guess straight sandlewood isnt for me. I like it mixed in with perfumes but this is just too strong and woody for me. Might try layering it with sweeter perfumes but definitely not going to wear this by itself.
Good every day scent
It’s a very baseball fragrance good for every day wear. It’s sandalwood. Not over powering just a nice subtle scent.
I love sandalwood and wanted a perfectly woodsy scent. In the bottle, it smells great. The first time I tried it, my mother asked me if a dog had peed on me and I didn't know it. I kind of noticed a strange, sweet odor after a half hour of spraying it on. I was determined to give it another try with equally disappointing results. I think it is just not good with my chemistry although canines may disagree with me.
Love Love Love!! Sexy confidence!!!
Reminds me of something my grandmother wore back in the 70's. No thank you.
This is 100% a woman’s scent. My husband sprayed it in a different room and as it wafted my way all I could smell was baby powder. The scent of baby powder was so strong it was almost alarming because we have not had a baby in the house for years. The baby smell died down after about 15 minutes but then a floral scent came through followed by a spicy/ floral scent. I understand scents can change based off body chemistry so I sprayed it on myself and 3 kids, all with the same outcome. Collectivly, we decided we did not enjoy this one at all for a man or woman.
Not for me
I didnt compliment me
Don't like it
Not a fan at all... It has a strange smell gives me a headache
Sandalwood at it's Best!!!
One of my favorites so far and I've been a subscriber for almost 2.5 years!!! This is true Sandalwood... it's very warm and cozy. IMO this is the perfect fall/winter scent. Wear it with a big bulky sweater and let the warmth flow from you!!! This goes well anytime of the day. I smell Sandalwood first and there is a warm true musk after note. If you're a flowery type of scent wearer, this might not be for you. I feel this is a perfect unisex scent. I'd love my man to wear it!!! I want to buy the full sized bottle. Lastly, this scent has staying power. It lasts on me a good 10 plus hours. LOVE!
not the best but not the worst
Not very sandalwood
I wear sandalwood essential oil, but this just didn't have the same woodsy scent that I am used too. Just not for me.
A must try for sandalwood lovers
This is a really nice scent for daytime use. At first it’s a little strong but once it settles down it’s perfect . Great for men and women who love a woodsy scent. A must try if you like sandalwood
really enjoyed this
Very Nice Scent!
I was very impressed with the smell of CENTURIES! I was skeptical at first but now I'm glad I tried it!
This is one scent I will be buying again.
Not bad, not what I was looking for
Maybe I don't like sandalwood like I thought I did? Overall I don't think it's a bad scent, just not really what I was looking for.
Definitely not what I was expecting. Gross.
Way too musky. Just not for me
It smells good for maybe some people, but Its jot for me at all. Smells more like a mans scent, or someone who’s really into the musky and woody smelling types of scents. So based on the types of scents I put that I like when I took the quiz I’m very surprised that this was recommended. I’ll probably give it to someone as a gift, I’ll never wear it.
This smells wonderful. I am not a floral scent person this is definitely spicy and the perfect blend of sandalwood. Not heavy. Not too simple but not too busy either. JUST RIGHT.
My favorite so far
Love the scent ... will definitely be buying a larger batch of this one.
Not good by itself , but....
I couldn't use this product by itself but Im always mixing it with my other parfume to make it more intense, to make it smell more woody
Favorite so far
Though it seems to fade away quickly this scent is definitely my favorite that I’ve received in the six months I’ve been subscribed.
This one is an amazing floral scent. it works well for me. I've gotten a lot of compliments. I may have found my signature scent. I dance so i am close to plenty of females. and so far haven't gotten one complaint.
It's a nice woodsy smell
Nice smell when it calms down but does not last long for me.
Suprising & subtle
I’d like to say overall i was surprisingly pleased with this scent. it doesn’t last very long and is somewhat subtle but that’s not too bad because when people do get close enough to notice it is refreshing. 🌲 🌲 🌲💚
Great First Scent!!!
OMG! This is an AWESOME scent and SO ME!!! I am very impressed with the subscription so far.
Honestly this is exactly how it's described.. spicy, woodsy, musky, fruity. If you're not a fan of musk then this is definitely not for you but I, in fact, was absolutely in love with it.
Not a fan
This isn't at all what I was expecting. I was expecting something soft and sexy. This smells similar to Tom Ford Black Orchid mixed with pickle juice and baby powder. I will be throwing this away. It just doesn't mix well with my body chemistry.
Overpowering old man smell!!
Smells pretty good. Doesn't last all day though.
Not my favorite
Not enough sandalwood to this. Too much musk scent. Disappointed. But will try another.
It’s okay. Smells too woodsy
Too woodsy and musky
I like sandalwood generally, and this is an amazingly delicious version. There is some fruit and orange underneath. Reminds me of a fresh sunny summer day in a place with a lot of trees.
I was not a fan. It wasnt horrible, but, it didnt appeal to me
I love it smells amazing recieved a lot of compliments on it. Just wish the scent last longer and a little stronger. But in all wonderful.
Not at all a mens fragrance
I was so disappointed when i first took a sniff of this. My first impression was how womanly this scent was. I really dont know why this fragrance was under cologne. It truly reminds me of my moms perfume and so i sprayed it on and left it for a few hours maybe seeing if the scent would change. And if anything the sweetness ( almost like a floral) scent really lingered. I would never wear this around my girlfriend bc she would so make fun of it lol. I almost considered giving it to my girlfriend but it literally smells like a older ladies perfume. I still smell it where i sprayed it last night which was 12 hours ago and still smells completely feminine to me. Next time I WILL NOT buy a unisex fragrance, mark my words
This is a nice woodsy scent for the warmer months. It’s sophisticated and classic without being “old lady” smelling.
It is so rare for me to leave a negative review; I was so excited to try this perfume, after reading all the great reviews. Unfortunately, truly I am so disappointed that this perfume smell like a pickle juice.
I stick mostly to incensey/woodsy/gourmand perfumes, so when I saw this, I was really excited because I love sandalwood oil and incense. So excited that I put it #1 in my queue. I received it yesterday and immediately put it on. I absolutely love it! At first, it smelled exactly like Book by Commodity, but then it fills out and a slight sweetness and a depth creeps in. My only complaint is that it does not last long.
Spicy with a hint of a sweet after taste
True, it absolutely does sound like I am describing an entree at a restaurant but I feel this description is most fitting. Overall, I really enjoyed it but I do wish it would have lasted longer and I did not get as many compliments and questions in regards to what was the fragrance I was wearing. This fragrance in my opinion would be best suited as a date night fragrance with someone you know and as a shower gel and not a first impression.
Did not remind me of Sandalwood. I love woody scents, masculine, unisex scents. This was not that. Its sweet. This scent was just alright. I prefer sultry scents like Nirvana Black. It reminds me of the fig collection from Bath and Body Works. Its warm but smooth. Its not spicy. I picture this being a nice fall scent.
Not for me
I really love the scent of Sandlewood, but this must not mix with my natural scent and well. Ill have to stick to candles.
I love the smell . It’s not overwhelming. Had many compliments on it. Very pleased
Not for everyone...
Sandalwood, I have had it in my body lotion; in my bodywash, heck, I have also had Sandalwood in candle form. This was however, my first time having it in cologne. I was on the fence with this particular scent. The initial hit I got from upon spraying it on my skin... I got what every critic will spew out as comments, i.e. floral, fresh, yadda, yadda, yadda. I too, recall all those myself. However, I am living at the moment, im a god-awful Southwestern state, and this specific scent does not survive in 100°+F weather, or 90°F nights for that matter. I will have to give it t another shot come Fall. I believe it has potential. Until than, I will leave my monthly suggestions to tge experts over @ ScentBird...with what I have no choice but to argue tge fact that they did truly resurect the "pony-express" when it comes to mailing.
Smells like an old overpowered lady
Smells like an old overpowered lady, wish i hadn't chosen it.
Smells very soft and earthy.
Great scent lighter than I thought it would be but very nice unobtrusive but lingers nicely definitely will be purchasing this scent again for longer use I loved it
I love sandlewood scents this one is nice but the scent doesnt last long
perfect for me. love sandalwood. I wear it everyday.
Not for me
Not a horrible fragrance, just not something I would wear.
It is exactly what it says it is.
Rich earthy sophisticated scent of sandalwood. This is by no means a flashy, going out sort of scent. This would be more suited for a weekend to the cabin.
Love the smell, but the scent fades quickly.
Didn’t smell good on me
I wasn’t at all impressed with the smell on my me. It wasn’t a bit medium and didn’t last Forbes longer Than a hour
Manly, Simple, Potent
The scent is amazing. Very, manly and simple. Like an Abercrombie and Fitch scent with less class and more strength.
Long-lasting fresh clean scent.
This scent was exactly was I was looking for. Subtle and earthy. Love this one!
Don’t judge it right away
Strong at first, then as the day past, I really liked it.
Love this scent!
Super prefect! Very hipster & friends are loving it too!
Very strong smelling. Stays for a while.
Very nice, long lasting. Woodsy notes.
So much sandlewood goodness
Last a long time
Love the scent HOWEVER...
It's extremely light...by the time I spray it on, finished getting dressed, and run out the door, I can no longer smell it !! It smells really good but the propose is defeated if I can't even smell it for even a small while...
Like I stated in the title, this is a simple fragrance that I would feel comfortable wearing all the time. It is a sandalwood hit!
Has a fresh floral, citrusy scent
This smells so good, like I've taken a bath in sandalwood essential oil, but its not overpowering. Its sweet and musky-ish without being super masculine .
What is that smell????
This cologne got so many good reviews I took a leap of faith and tried it... boy was I sorry when it came in the mail. It first hits with sandalwood then this sweet/sour overpowering note takes over. I’m always open minded which is why I try things others recommend, but I might rethink things in the future. The smell is so strange it’s just unpleasant. I took my sample and gave it to the homeless guy that hangs out at our local Walmart... he appreciated it. WAY OFF THE MARK FOR ME.
I’ve never smelt hot before, it had good ratings so I thought I’d try it ou. It’s now my FAVORITE scent. I’ve been wearing it every day!
Absolutely pure scent. Love this!!!
I love this scent. I have a coworker who is very sensitive to smells and she hasnt even noticed im wearing it. This cologne is what cologne should be. A subtle statement. Not and announcement. I smell good when i walk past and it does not linger.
Sweet, sweet sandalwood
I thought this was going to be a little more on the woodsy side, but it has a delicately sweet aroma on my skin. It’s a great casual smell probably fit for a sunny day.
I Love this scent!
I have always been drawn to Sandalwood, but too often the perfumes calling themselves Sandalwood actually masked the scent with other notes that overwhelmed it. This is not one of those perfumes. It is the perfect Sandalwood, and i will be ordering more!
Sublime peace in a bottle
This is my first subscription...I went on a whim and didn't go by the test just tagged scents I liked...this one came up. I thought, $15, I'll try it! oh my heavens this is the most beautiful androgynous scent!!! It's feminine but masculine...perfect balance of spice and calming Sandalwood. Not overpowering but long lasting. I'm totally hooked!
nice woodsy smell with subtle citrus nodes
I really enjoy this scent and will commit to a whole bottle!
