Always Mr. Hyde...
Indian Wood opens with sugary sweet coconut milk infused sandalwood before transitioning to its heart. As the composition enters its early heart the hyper-sweet coconut milk remains in full force with the sandalwood taking a supporting role, turning creamy while spiked with vague warm spice as moss-derived heavy powder joins the coconut milk as co-star. During the late dry-down the powder vacates leaving remnants of the spiced sandalwood, now offloading about half of its sweetness to pair with newly unveiled relatively transparent vetiver from the base through the finish. Projection is average, with longevity below average at 5-6 hours on skin.

This is extremely bad smelling stuff, at least from the perspective of this sweetness and powder-averse writer. The coconut milk used here presents itself as sugary sweet cotton candied suntan lotion, and the likely fake ("faux" if you prefer) sweet, creamy sandalwood only emphasizes the sweetness of it further. Add in extremely powdery make-up like tree moss eschewing all of its green facets entirely, and you have concocted just about a "worst case" scenario. I suppose those whose preferences are the polar opposite to mine may enjoy Indian Wood, but for me this stuff is unwearable and horrific smelling until the banal and forgettable late dry-down only slightly tempers the continuous nasal assault. The bottom line is the "very poor" to "poor" 1.5 to 2 stars out of 5 rated $125 per 50ml bottle Indian Wood may appeal to niche sugary sweet powder freaks (some have *got* to be out there), but the majority of perfume enthusiasts will want to steer well-clear of this repellent cotton candied makeup-like monstrosity.

Very creamy and sweet sandalwood-coconut milk combo in the opening, quickly settles into a more classic Old Spice vibe.
