A handmade transistor radio housed in soft sandalwood crackles out a burst of music in the stifling summer heat of Bandra, Mumbai. The copper tubes warm the wood, releasing smooth, creamy ribbons of fragrance, the air richly inflected with local spices, fruit ripening on the trees, flowers from the market, and the musk of millions of people making their way through the sun-shot city. Gentle and natural with one sniff, vibrant and energetic with the next, Radio Bombay is an elusive new sandalwood as only D.S. & Durga would think to make it- completely infused with the spirit and soul of India.

Got this for my partner as a 7th wedding anniversary ("Copper" is the gift, and Radio Bombay had those notes!) and despite not sampling beforehand, the scent has subtle musk with some coconut notes, which my partner says makes it a great summer fragrance. Recommend!
Opens with sandalwood and notes of what to me has a hint of jasmine & spice, then develops on me to have a cooked rice/sunscreen layer that becomes woodsy/metallic. I wanted to like this, but just not as pleasant on me as I'd hoped. After settling, is just a really nice sandalwood. Could be really good with the right skin chemistry
