And it is when I had almost lost all hope of finding a worthy replacement for my beloved Egoiste (original version from 90's), that I bought this perfume, blindly relying for the first time only on what I have read around on the internet. Thank goodness the reviews weren't wrong. It is very reminiscent of Egoiste by Chanel, it is true, and it is just as beautiful but also different, while maintaining that very spicy, creamy, slightly sweet and woody accord ... wonderful!


after a few days of use, I can only confirm the first impressions and specify some points. It is true that it recalls Egoiste but, unlike the Chanel, this Geo F. Trumper is more scratchy and less round, less floral (the rose does not feel like in Egoiste) and the sandalwood is less evident being more covered by spicy notes. Even the base, late drying, is sweeter in the Trumper, where the sweet and soft but not cloying note of vanilla clearly emerges. Excellent longevity (more than Egoiste) and more than good projection, really nothing to complain about. I confirm, very promoted! ⁝

This came with much recommendation and is surprisingly concentrated and substantive for a Trumper cologne. What I mean is that this does really project, has depth, and lasts for hours, more like an eau de parfum.

There is a splendid atmosphere to it, with notable floral elements such as jasmine and geranium that exalt a smooth, gorgeous sandalwood.

Really, this is the kind of sandalwood that I seek and seldom find: woody, yet creamy, ever so slightly oily and sharp, but just wonderfully sheer, too. I could be convinced that there was genuine Mysore, though my nose surely deceives me, as that would be impossible.


I had long used the Trumper Sandalwood Skin Food and Shower Gel. This smells just like those and is a very nice extension of that creamy sandalwood scent.

It is very nice, but kind of defies easy categorization. It's inordinately pleasant. Not particularly masculine or feminine. Good for work or casual days.

It is probably a given that Egoiste fans would like this. It's kind of like a vastly simplified Egoiste A touch of citrus and vanilla, mainly sandalwood. Lacks the spice and rosey aspects of Egoiste.

Though a "cologne" has pretty good legs but a bit lacking longevity wise for me. It's a comfortable easy reach with a more prominent sandalwood than many are probably used to wearing.

A classic, British-style citrus-sandalwood-vanilla scent, but with one of the richest, most satisfying sandalwood notes you can find outside of vintage perfumery.

This is a beautiful gentlemanly sandalwood cologne that has a large citric and vanilla feel to it. The opening to my nose is notes of creamy, sweet sandalwood coupled with lemon and vanilla, while the drydown...It's really creamy in scent, like a custard made of sandalwood oil if that makes sense. Apparently a lot of people compare this to Chanel's classic sandalwood fragrance known as Egoiste (though I haven't smelled that one). This fragrance is also a near perfect pairing with Proraso Red aftershave as it contains a near identical sandalwood note to the one in this fragrance. Projection for this cologne is strong while longevity is also good at over 6 hours of good projection. It actually performs like an eau de parfum rather than a 'cologne', and I presume it probably is one. Overall, it's in my top 3 sandalwood fragrances of all time, along with Tom Ford Santal Blush and the discontinued Art of Shaving Sandalwood EDT.


It just smells like Egoiste. Egoiste and me are not friends. It is just one fragrance that I really can't stand.

If you like Egoiste you will love this. Plus it lasts a really long time for a cologne.
