Sacred WoodSold Out
No longer available to perfumers since it was over-harvested, Mysore sandalwood (Santalum album) is one of the ingredients they miss the most. Calice Becker had long been working on a blend that would reproduce its complexity: the warm, rosy, smoky, creamy, spicy facets that make the legendary wood such an irreplaceable material.
Though originally intended as a base, the composition worked so beautifully on its own, and within the theme of the collection, that Kilian Hennessy snapped it up for the last episode of his Asian Tales. Sacred Wood conjures the mystical scent with amazing accuracy: like its model, it is so rich and facetted it is a fragrance in and of itself. Its silky, sensuous scent is amazingly long-lasting, though never overwhelming. It is the answer to the prayers of all sandalwood lovers.

There is nothing sacred about this fragrance, no wow factor IMO. Surely I won't pay no more than 50 dollars for a full bottle, that's how I feel about this fragrance. I must admit I had high expectations...
Need more TIME
I liked this scent fine but it reminded me too much of Irish Spring to cost this much. Sharp and soapy at first, spice comes out after it dries. More masculine than I expected. Faded pretty quickly. Not bad at all but no "wow." Maybe if I had the original Mysore sandalwood scent to reference I would appreciate it more.
