Can you be more oriental?
First, a thank you to "Shaunpher" for the nice souk.
The first time I smelled Santal Royal about 3-4 months ago, and was so excited that now finally a whole bottle of it was allowed to move in with me.
But from the beginning.
The bottle is a feast for the eyes and one of the most beautiful I was ever allowed to hold in my hands. Opaque, solid black glass with gold facets and a beautiful loop around the spray head.
And if that wasn't enough, it also pairs beautifully with the included eau de parfum.
Admittedly, jasmine and nerolino notes I can not perceive, but immediately the two main players make themselves clearly noticeable: Rose and Oud. The oud is, unlike in many other fragrances, but not "dirty" and penetrating, but very softly embedded - like everything in this fragrance. Also the rose, which turns out to be rather a dark one, is buttery soft and harmonizes wonderfully.
In the later course then joins a tart peach and only slightly sweetened cinnamon.
Last but not least, then also has the eponymous sandalwood his appearance, and completes this noble composition, which is in the eyes of many one of the highest quality at all.
Out comes a dreamlike, mysterious Oriental, which has its appearance on colder days or in evening and night occasions - if you dose it carefully, certainly also times at work wearable. Thus have the question of H&S probably also answered.
Thierry water and Guerlain have created a dreamlike unisex fragrance here, which has a very special aura and attraction to me. This masterpiece of perfume art gets from me a smooth 10, few can keep up with him - he is simply magical.
