Disappointed
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.

Hard pass!!
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.

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!

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

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.

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.

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

Love This!
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.

Its smooth
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 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.

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.

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!
