Scent of Serenity
Massive Attack – Unfinished Sympathy

As the name correctly suggests, Sacred Wood is an extremely woody fragrance. The milky sandalwood note is really prominent. As not being a sandalwood specialist, I cannot identify which variety is used in this fragrance. A strong menthol accompanies the sandalwood accord with a touch terpene-like elemi resin and Indian spices (like a very faint immortelle or cumin) in the background. Some darker note, incense or oud, gives a little bit dirtier kick to the composition. The sandalwood-theme is well supported by a strong cedar backbone, which reminds of Comme des Garcons Wonderwood.
Although having a great performance on my skin, I find this fragrance overly one-dimensional. It reminds me more of isolated woody base. Like it is not finished nor possessing a quirky interplay with more volatile notes. Still, it is well constructed, enjoyable and serene, but lacking that wow factor. I would like to see this creation more expanded.

Rating: 7/10

Milky, steamy, sandalwood - no complexity but it's not needed as it smells great!

If I come across as uncouth I apologize, to me, it's just sandalwood. Why the hype? If u luv sandalwood, this is it, if not, don't bother.+2

Terre D'Hermes with sandalwood in place of the flinty citrus note. Not bad, but nothing to get excited about either. Redundantly pleasant.+2

Soft wood with a smoky undertone is quite pleasant. What is disturbing, is a sourish note, which is particularly noticeable in the beginning.+1
