Description
Santal Wood is like discovering a gorgeous, hard-carved inlaid box while browsing through an antique store. Juniper and seawater accords blended with a heart of pure sandalwood make this fragrance both satisfying and mysterious. The oakmoss in the base is as soft as brushed green felt – all that remains is for you to place your memories inside the box while you wear it.

Santal Wood
This is a very enjoyable fragrance. I like the way it starts out with a fresh scent almost like a fresh rainy spring day and dries down to a powdery sandalwood smell. If I could afford this brand I would probably wear Santal Wood more often.

Not just for men
I love the smell of sandalwood. A fragrance that has thrived the ages. I ordered this without checking if it was for men or women. Upon initial contact I thought “this is musky, but the sandalwood is delightful.” Eventually the musk lightens and all you’re left with is this long-lasting soft sandalwood aroma. No one noticed it was a “male” scent. It should be listed under the androgynous aromas because it simply sits on my very feminine skin beautifully. 10/10 would wear anywhere & purchase the full bottle for myself or my husband.

My Go To Fragrance for Social Events
To me this scent is well-balanced. Most of the Montale fragrances I've tried are too floral, but Santal Wood has a nice fresh and woody aroma. The longevity is amazing (almost last too long)! Only need one tiny spritz on the back of my neck and I smell it all day and all night. I've even woken up the next morning with hints of it still lingering. This isn't may everyday cologne, it's more for special occasions or times when I need a long lasting fragrance. I sometimes wear this around the office at work, but usually go for something a little more low-key. While this scent may not be for everyone, I truly enjoy it! (I'm also curious to try "Sand Flowers" by Montale if Scentbird ever starts carrying it.)

Just okay
This scent just didn't do it for me. I can smell the description and think it has potential, but this is not a fresh woody smell. This is more for a clean cut, fresh look, going out to the club type of guy. I think women would gravitate toward a man wearing this fragrance.

this is not my normal smell profile. I love sandalwood scents but this is more robust and classic than i normally go for. With that being said , short of a couple of creed scents and my all time fave legend from montblanc i have never received so many compliments on a particular scent. ( even with folks wearing masks everywhere currently.) ive truly grown to enjoy this . Its also one of the most complex scents ive tried with a new note coming on every smell.

The House of Montale has truly captivated me 9 years ago. Majority of the fragrances are unisex. It all depends on your scent preference. I admire and respect this house. It smells like you just came back from war and you not only was victorious. But, you were crowned king. Men's Fragrance indeed. Live wild in fiery passion with your mate. She will hold your Excalibur forever

This easily a signature cologne it’s fresh wood citrus masculine cologne{no sweet}. Let me tell you, this is not a fragrance for compliments but each person that approaches you is going to have a really good impresión about you! Awesome for interviews 3 sprays both sites of neck and back neck, work office 5 sprays, casual use 6 sprays 20 min before you arrive to any place (indoors) outdoors don’t worry if you have 25 years and up you need in you’re 5 rotation signature cologne.

Santal wood it's amazing, very masculine. Could use this every time of the year very Woody, very masculine. Montale is very well known by been very strong perfume but in this case I would say that the projection it's about 4' to 6' for the first 30 min, after that it became a very personal fragrance.

A scent that stays on mind as much as body
Its a deep scent at first, and gets deeper as the day rolls on. But it's oddly unique and you find yourself desiring the scent. It's not terribly overpowering, surprisingly light actually. Definitely a unisex scent though so I cant say it's for everyone. But if you're open to experimenting, this one might surprise you

It takes a moment for all the notes to come out, but smells great once that happens! Longevity is decent – I can still catch subtle whiffs of it 4 to 5 hours into a normal office day. I do wish it had more pronounced sandalwood notes, though. (I'd give it 4.5 stars if that was possible... but I feel 4 is too low, so it gets a 5 from me.)

Better than expected
I wasn’t too sure about this one and got it more for the scents noted for it. I actually ended up liking it more than I was expecting. It’s definitely on the stronger side and so one spritz will take you a long way. And like others have mentioned, it’s a leans a little bit on the sweet scent side of thing. So don’t expect a rugged manly man kind of smell. Overall though, I like it and may have to pick me up a full bottle in the future.

Fresh and woodsy
This one was surprisingly fresh and clean, but still held true to its woodsy notes without coming off as old school or mature. I was hoping for better projection, but it’s just enough. I’d recommend this for the office or an intimate setting with that special someone. Signature scent for someone in their 20’s to 30’s for all seasons.
