Undoubtedly "Santal" is a man's scent. It starts with a crisp pepper note, spicy with clove bud like I am adding to the dough of pepper-cakes. There is something dark-green. And I smell juniper. Citrus? Maybe. Then "Santal" is calming down and I am going to smell balmy resins, also coniferous notes, vanilla and a slight ozoniferous touch. Summerized: "Santal" is a spicy, woody, resinous, vanilla fragance. If a testing person has enough patience he or she will experience a wonderfull soft, mild and cultivated fragance, a perfect mixture. It is long lasting on my skin. I could imagine this as a winter perfume for men. I would like to smell ist on a man if I did not have to stand the first hot phase. Unfortunately my husband does not like men's fragances at all (he loves women perfumes - on my skin), but as a shower-gel I guess he would like it.
