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

Initially uplifting and spicy-green, a rather dry and musky, spicy earthy-woody Mid season fragrance, with some sour lactonic nuances.

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.

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

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

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