Cardamom / Sandalwood recommendations?

I recently started using this product from Dove:

SANDALWOOD + CARDAMOM OIL BODY WASH. It smells amazing. The two named scents combine in a very pleasing way. For a simple body wash, it really has a certain something to it.

Can anyone recommend a similar fragrance that predominantly features these two scents?

A budget friendly choice might be Cremo Palo Santo - which is pretty much cardamom, papyrus, and (synthetic) sandalwood. I gather it's a budget clone of Le Labo Santal 33, but it's surprisingly good for what it is. For what it's worth, Cremo Palo Santo also comes in a very nice body wash.

I dunno if Cardamom is officially a note, but I definitely get hints of cardamom in Dries Van Noten by Frederic Malle, and of course it has a fabulous sandalwood accord. Worth trying.
