For many, this is a reference sandalwood. Incredible melange of rich, aromatic sandalwood followed by cool, resinous cypress. A great combination. Has a nicely grainy wood note, really textured. Wears well, gives a confident and sophisticated vibe.
Notes: Sandalwood, Rosewood, Cypress, Ambergris

I will try to sample this one more time. I don't mind sandalwood fragrances, however just a bare sandalwood accord bores me. The cypress sounds good to me.

I have an old bottle from when they used to be square instead of oval. I don't get that much sandalwood from it. The smell of it reminds me of sunflower seeds, husk and all.

The EdP I've heard is bigger on the sandalwood accord though.
