Absolutely Unwearable
This comes out of the bottle smelling like cheap men’s cologne. Ten minutes later, it still smells like cheap men’s cologne. Absolutely not.

Spicy and earthy, long lasting
I like stronger, long lasting perfumes and on me this lasted all day! Could be too strong for other people though. It’s also pretty earthy, and if you like “clean” or “fresh” perfumes this might not be for you! Though “unisex” most people would say this is on the “masculine” side, if you prescribe to such categorizations. Personally I think the male/female division of perfumes is because current social/fashion norms say that women should smell like clean flowers and men should smell like musky spice. I don’t care about those norms so I just pick whatever notes and scents I like, regardless of the male/female label 💁🏻‍♀️

I’m still young
This one smelled like something I would wear if I were 85, I couldn’t wear it but gave to my grandma (95) and she liked it. The “notes” all sounded good on the card but in theory I don’t think they blended well together I got the fall vibe from them, but not sure what made it smell “old”

Lovely
So, I realize this is a man’s fragrance but somehow it ended up in my queue. And I am very happy it did. In the spirit of laissez faire I decided to try it- after all scents don’t have to have a gender and historically scents were much more fluid then what we consider they are now. It started off overwhelmingly clove, however, the dry down really emphasizes the vanilla and cardamom with a lovely amber tone. I don’t know if I would spend the money to buy a bottle, but I will use the entire sample and see how I feel at the end.

This is meant for a man
I like this, but it is definitely a masculine fragrance, I'm not sure how I mistakenly found it and put it in my queue. I have a (male) friend who uses another santal fragrance and this doesn't have the richness of that one. This will probably end up in the trash, it smells a bit too old man for any of my friends.

If you like wearing men’s cologne....
I literally had to double check what I ordered because I was so surprised by the masculine smell. I think that may be like some edgy trend, but I’m a lady and I want to smell like one. My husband actually told me I smell like “a bro” but then asked me the name bc he thought about wearing it himself. Then I told him it’s “Santal by Floris” and he was confused. Me too. I got not one compliment, in fact I feel like people were like “why?”.....

Savory?
There was something about this fragrance that didn’t work with my body chemistry. On the dry down it smelled almost savory on me, like I had been strolling through a food market. It was not for me. I have it to my husband who it smells quite woody on.

Its a different clean smell. Soft and subtle
This has a good clean almost barber shop smell to it. If that makes any sense. The santal name is not very descriptive of the scent. Woods are very soft undertones. the scent is very subtle and doesn’t last all day. But it is a very pleasant masculine scent. Im glad I gave it a try but I wouldn’t repeat.

Try Oddity
I liked Rag and Bone's Oddity a little better, it was more interesting and had a nice smell once it dried down. This is good for a really basic scent or to mix with other fragrance, but if you're looking for something a little more complex you'll want to pass unless you really really love sandalwood.I wouldn't be upset if it was gifted to me, but I wouldn't go out of my way to purchase this.

Classic masculine
My dad ordered this and it's very classic clean guy smell. Cedar, a dollop of warm spiciness, and a hint of true lavender to give it a fresh clean bite with the cedar. It reminds me of a deodorant I often swipe from my BF in summertime (same scent family?) , and I can see myself adding this to my queue if not borrowing a spritz when I visit. I would say it leans pretty masculine for a unisex scent. But I don't mind that sometimes. Others on here say it's categorically spicy, but compared to dad's Old Spice this is WAY fresher and brighter with only a hint of the spiciness that dominates there. And it IS woody, but not like dark, damp oakmoss or vertiver earthy-woody. Again, it's cedar, and sandalwood, and fresh lavender. It's warm and... whatever the word would be if wood were sharp? Bright? Tart?

A subtle master piece
Not a strong scent with low to moderate sillage. So I was surprised by just how long it lasts, more than all day.This is a light and sophisticated fragrance that will make people think *you* smell good rather than ask about your scent and some times that's just what you want.

too masculine and not that interesting
I prefer unisex scents since I'm not into scents that are too fruity or powdery. I like all of the different notes of this product, but I don't think they worked well on me. I was hoping for more vanilla and cardamom. Also, there was nothing special about this scent.

Tamed Spice
This is very much like a lot of scents traditionally marketed towards men. However, because they wanted the scent to be more unisex leaning, it's not strong as those scents usually are and they added more vanilla to make it a bit softer. Now, anyone can wear it, but it's not terribly interesting.

This is a love, like smell. Definitely not an everyday smell. The first spray I felt like I was back at my grandmas house during Gin Rummy card night. But as the day goes on it becomes more of the lavender spicy undertones.
