Tam Dao

Lauren Lovellette
Loved it!

Scent split is amazing, although the bottles are pretty small. Loved Tam Dao, and will be purchasing a bottle of it.

The EDT is the best

I'm a Tam Dao devotee and much prefer the EDT to the EDP. I realize this is a contentious topic in the perfume world, which is just a world I'm oddly experiencing as a broke outsider. Tam Dao is simple, soft, warm, and beautiful. I don't understand the comparisons to Santal 33 at all... Santal 33 is all Palo Santo (I'm sorry.. "secret ingredient") ...I mean, burn a stick of Palo Santo and you have Santal 33. If you know anyone who works with the wood spiritually you likely also feel like Santal 33 is a single-note Palo Santo oil. Tam Dao, on the other hand, is soft sandalwood, cedar, and the warmest, most velvety bed of baby herbs. It lacks the gingery sharpness of the EDP version, which is why I prefer it. I'm endlessly confused by the people who list their experiences as the opposite about the EDT vs the EDP. EDT is the cozy one! And for some reason it lasts longer on me than the EDP. True story.

Saw it on a list of scents similar to santal 33 -- I like cedar and sandalwood -- but this was too strong and cologney to even wear once

1697 a “must try"

All “great” fragrances aren’t for everybody. I realize that. Many people have different tastes, etc.. I would however at least try 1697. It is a well blended, quality fragrance that will get compliments. It is not the stuff you find at Macy’s that everyone else is wearing. 1697 exudes sophistication although I would not call it a fomal scent. A scent that can be worn for many occasions.
