Major Letdown!
To be very honest, I haven't been enjoying most of this niche trip I'm on for a while now. Very disappointed, for most part. So many of them are just so vague and/or un-inspired and always trying to follow trends even within their 'niche' community. Anyways, meh...

Now, being a big fan of Sandalwood I had big expectations with this one. And dang! was I disappointed. If you have smelt real Sandalwood, the stuff that comes from Mysore, you'll definitely know this is super-fake stuff. Just a typical boring modern "blend" of synthetics. Extremely boring. It's just there - doesn't do anything. Like that stranger who walks into a party and awkwardly smiles and stares at everybody because he doesn't know anyone and that's all he can presumably do. Very annoying.

As for the scent, it's all there. A very generous helping of synthetic ISO E Super-wood. Woody, dusty and slightly creamy supported by a touch of myrrh, cinnamon, and probably saffron on a very bland ambery base. Just a well-rounded portion of serious boredom. It'll probably work for someone. Probably when life is too interesting and all you want is some boredom to balance things out. This could be one for those days.

I personally feel to charge this kind of money from people who really want to buy good stuff and giving them something that is probably decent "student experiment" at best is just plain criminal. I don't think I'd recommend this to anyone. If you want something with similar accords done way better and at a sane price try Egoiste by Chanel. It's phenomenal. This, on the other hand, is a major letdown!
