How to smuggle vetiver under sandalwood
Concerning the second name "The Sandalwood Trail", the clear key data and the first olfactory impression immediately after spraying, I hardly expected to find flawless sandalwood contraband here.

At least the sandalwood is well represented here, but mixes in an interesting way with other woody, leathery and smoky notes. One could almost think that one has got lost in a dark dive. In between there are some fresh citric counterpoints, which brighten up the Smuggler's soul a bit and make it sympathetic.

But if you take a closer look into the depth, you can't ignore the really successful vetiver component. Sometimes you think that it drifts into the creakiness of Guerlain's vetiver, but apparently sandalwood and lemongrass keep it well in check. Nevertheless, it is thought that the vetiver and the smoky wood or sandalwood note form a compliant intersection.

After a good hour I had the impression that a good portion of musk had also smuggled itself into the action - without this being indicated. Therefore I am a bit confused, but you don't have to believe everything that is officially duty paid or declared in the listing.

While you enjoy the fragrance for a long time, you may ask yourself from time to time whether Smuggler's Soul is a velvety, smoky sandalwood specialty or a more refined, rustic vetiver representative. At least he has what it takes to be a tease and I can imagine that he can polarize phenomenally.

Personally, I like the ingenious interlocking of the main actors, but it only becomes really appealing with the subtle lemon grass as the third in the bunch. His role is not so dominant, but gives just the right accent. A fragrance with soul and character!

Reminds me of those mini cannonball aniseed balls I'd buy in bags of 20 as a child. Just too sweet on dry down.

Dry, grey & salty sandalwood - No milk today! Get the ugly sprayer (EdP reeks of a cheeky architect - not that I disliked cheeky people).
