Trio of sandal
Russian Adam starts with a dutch distributor for europe and first advantage was shipping at normal costs. Before the eu shipping did cost around $45.00 what was an abnormal amount for a scent with a price of $150 - $250. the shipment now $9.00 ?

Santal galore opens like a soap, built on roses and sandalwood balanced by moss. In the backyard there is indeed a note what will be the 'stinky' durian. In santal galore it doesnt and i think it has a bit musky smell. The other musk, the deer, is in this creation a support in stead of the main role player like we see in earlier collections. After 4 hours it sets in a real creamy "again" sandal base with tonka.

I

The total of the lovely wooden box, the old style 50 ml bottle and the high percentage natural ingredients are worth the retailprice of $350,00.

The prices asked on ebay are ridiculous and are out of proportion.

Surprise package...
I was looking forward to seeing Santal Galore...
I know the "smell" of the Durian fruit and it is not exactly "cheerful"... those who know the fruit know what I mean ;-)

When the ALD package finally arrived and I took Santal Galore from the wonderful wooden box, the tension was enormous...

Sprayed on, I'm met by a rather fruity and smoky scent... yes, somehow also smoky...
However, this gentle smoke quickly dissipates and a sweet fruitiness with slightly bitter touches remains? very special and absolutely not 0/8/15...

The next moment I have a wonderful and delicate rose... filigree, young, somehow fresh and yet juicily fleshy and sublime...

...a fine sandal accompanies the fragrance and gives it hold and fullness...

In the later course a tender "dirtiness" is added, which I ascribe to the deer musk
Santal Galore is for me a "rather reserved" fragrance, even if it forms a soft-scented aura around me for a long time... The ALD-DNA is literally tangible...

In my opinion Santal Galore is - despite the extract concentration - not "too" strong, i.e. the sillage is rather in the "normal" range and the shelf life is about 6-7 hours for me...

All in all, Santal Galore surprised me very much (positive, mind you) and I find the fragrance and its uniqueness great class
I like scents that challenge me a bit and Santal Galore is such a fragrance for me, so for the fragrance itself a smooth 10 :-)
