“Chypre” Sandalwood
In my opinion it’s one of the best vintage interpretations of Sandalwood in perfumery. This fragrance is made as a Chypre and definitely has a certain “classic” vibe. In addition to the gorgeous dominant sandalwood, I can smell here some green and animalic notes, rose, resins and a lot of oak moss.

70's Lychee Psychedelica Odor
SANTAL by R&G from 1978 is an exceptional fragrance. I haven't smelled anything comparable so far (that's why the 50ml bottle stays with me).
In the parfumo fragrance direction it says "spicy woody". Sorry, but absolutely off and far away. Rather fruity, grapey and floral with depth and this as a men's perfume! The fragrance needs courage for a man, but because of its exceptional nature it will fully satisfy the penchant for chypre.
SANTAL is so chypre. One of those scents, as well as CATALYST, MAGNÉTIQUE or GRAN VALOR that I'm standing in front of and can't define what it is at all.
SANTAL is above all honey-sweet, stunningly floral and has this "effervescent" (like Brause/Limo) like KOUROS and then I fall into an almost psychedelic frenzy.
But the central all-pervading scent is, LITSCHI! Yes, exactly, these little grape-sized flutschigen Japanese fruits with the dragon skin shell. So psychedelic, full of '70s, but fruity and not grandma-piefig! Where CATALYST becomes vegetable and herbaceous, SANTAL wafts into the sensuously fruity floral and loses itself in-a-gadda-da-vida, honey...

Roger & Gallet have produced extraordinary creations anyway. R&G, 150 years and purveyor to the court in Great Britain.
