Do you remember the old Marlboro ads? A man and his horse in front of the fire on a great plain under tall, blue evening skies - A defining image of the spirit of the American West with all it implied about masculinity and personal freedom. This man, firelight in his face, leaning on the worn leather saddle, alone with the desert wind, an icon so powerful that every man wanted to be him and every woman wanted to have him...
From this memory is born SANTAL 33: the ambition to create an olfactive form inspired by the great American myth still a source of fantasy for the rest of the world...
A perfume that touches the sensual universality of this icon... that would intoxicate a man as much as a woman... that introduces our use of cardamom, iris, violet, ambrox which crackle in the formula and bring to this smoking wood alloy (Australian sandalwood, papyrus, cedarwood) some spicy, leathery, musky notes, and gives this perfume its unisex signature and addictive comfort.
I came across this one on Tiktok, the person said "this is what most hipster intellectual Girls in New york smell like" - I don't see that as a bad thing though, it's exactly what I expected this scent to be! Cardamom, paper, sweet sandalwood, leatherish finish, reminds me of a bookstore with lovely interior design~
I've smelled this in the air on other people and it smells good, however, I don't like wearing it.
Love the difference. Not to be confused with something else.
It smells like some sort of weird fake leather interior and pickles.
I've read the comments, interesting the variations of smells according to body chemistry. For me, this has a rose smell, my grandmother wore something similar.
