Santalum Fragrance Reviews

oktober

A very diluted version of Santal Blush, with a very strong rubber tone added.

If I would't know I'm smelling Santalum, I'd probably believe it's a bad replica of Santal Blush. A very bad one.

Save a few more euros and get Santal Blush. Or even Estee Lauder Sensuous, in a more feminine note. Much better than this.

I'm a sandalwood lover, big time, And I say- this is one of the worst, if not the very worst sandalwood fragrance!

Just to think I could have bought this blindly!!! I'd be furious! With that kind of money you can get 2 bottles of Santal Majuscule, for example (which is so much ahead of Santalum, they're in different timezones) Good thing I sampled first!

This reminds me very much of Tom Ford Santal Blush. There is a difference though; it is smoother, a little spicier (which I love) with the cinnamon being subtle yet noticeable. I like it better and better the longer it is on my skin. It is quite masculine and I like that about it; despite the fact that I am an ultra-feminine gal, these woody masculine fragrances are highly complementary to my skin's chemistry.

Santalum is very simple, actually and somehow Profumum manages to coax out the very best from its limited notes. I am reminded also of the sandalwood soap that Whole Foods sells - their own brand. It is a very calming, relaxing and therapeutic scent to me, yet manages to be sexy for all that. I don't think I can justify a full bottle though, given its similarity to TF Santal Blush which I already own. I will content myself with the samples I have - this is pricey stuff but would be absolutely worth it if I didn't already have the TF.

A lovely spicey, myrhh and sandalwood unisex fragrance. Perhaps a touch leaning to the masculine but Im happy to wear it. Its not sweet but quite balsamic. I dont get much cinnamon but I guess its just one of the spices. It would smell gorgeous on a guy out for the evening. Moderate sillage and longevity.

سانتاليوم – بروفومم روما

"الصندل المستحيل "

اللبان المر – صندل هاواي – القرفة – مكون صناعي ( ايزو سوبر)

يرتكز عطر صندل روما على زيت الصندل من هاواي التي تعرف بشجرة الإيلياهي وهو ذو رائحة كريمية لطيفة وان كنت لاحظت فيه أيضا بعض الخصائص العمبرية الدافئة الجميلة ، صندل هاواي يختلف كليا عن الميسوري النادر وصندل الغرب الاسترالي (الأكثر إنتاجا) .

بالإضافة الى اللبان المر بطابعه البخوري الراتنجي الجميل المهديء للنفس ، تم توظيفه بشكل جيد في العطر واضاف اليه العمق المطلوب توفره في هكذا عطور نيشية ، بالاضافة الى لمسة تابلية خفيفة لوجود القرفة ليست برائحتها المألوفة ولكنها منصهرة مع بقية المكونات العطرية. اللمسة الأيزو سوبرية حاضرة ايضا أخفتت العطر قليلا وساهمت بتعزيز طبيعته الخشبية.العطر خطي بإمتياز مع فوحان وثبات جميلين في اول ساعتين يتحول بعدها الى عطر ملامس للبشرة.عطر دافيء جميل ومبهج في نفس الوقت.

كما هو معروف عن هذه الدار استخدام أنقى المكونات الطبيعية بنسبة كبيرة في كل زجاجة عطر مما يفسر بطاقة السعر المرتفعة نسبيا ، الحرفية والبراعة حاضرتين وبقوة في تصميم هذه العطور ، هذه الدار صامتة وتعمل بصمت عجيب حسب ظني الشخصي.

هذه التجربة الثالثة لي معهم وكلها من اهداء صديق عزيز له مساهمات فاعلة في هذا المضمار "النيشي" ، أسأل الله العلى العظيم ان يوفقه ويحفظه من كل شر.

العطر أعاد القليل من بريق الصندل بعد اليأس التام من اكتشافات مذهلة لعطور مبنية على نوتة الصندل، كتقييم شخصي متواضع أعتبره انجاز عطري لفئة عطور الصندل البخورية ، العطر ليس صارخا ابدا ويصلح للإستخدام المكتبي
بجدارة.

@carlosrafel...I'm with you. I got a sample of this and yeah...one of the best SANDLEWOOD frags out to date. This smells very very well blended sand of highest quality. Some cheap frag have a bug spray nuance like Estée Lauder Amber mystique but not this, this is just a great, soft, fresh, masculine yet unisex sandlewood gem. I think it's worth getting a sample. It's not a wood scent like santal 33, it's more fresh like lavender like wood but soft yet very long lasting.
Overall 9/10.

Delicious Soft Sandalwood

Santalum is a soft, resinous (from the myrrh) sandalwood w/ a light tinge of spice. It is a minimalistic composition. It is all about sandalwood (the New Caledonian type, it seems to me). If you are a sandalwood lover, you will like this one, though it is not a loud one. It smells like a creamy, semi-sweet, and round sandalwood. It is cozy, calming, and comforting...just pleasant.

For comparison, I own the Art of Shaving Sandalwood. That one is louder and more jagged...the sandalwood does hit you in the back of the throat when you spray at first...love it for it...but Profumum's Santalum is rounder in the edges and of much higher quality of course...longevity is very good (not as long lasting as many other fragrances in the Profumum house but a good one nonetheless) and of moderate/soft sillage...it could be a little louder but it is perfect for office/work place wearing...this is not certainly a fragrance to go clubbing or be noticed from the other side of the room. However, just when I think I no longer smell it I'm surprised by unexpected episodes of delightful sandalwood breeze/waft through out the day. Love it.

The myrrh and the spices add a little twist to the sandalwood, particularly a spice-sweet one, which you can smell when you sniff this fragrance close to the skin. However, from a little farther, it is the sandalwood what stands out as it should. Over time the spicy/myrrh component subsides and all that remains is sandalwood, all day long.

If you like your sandalwood loud and proud, you may want to look at other compositions, but if you like it soft, minimalistic, lasting, true to its character, and refined for your own enjoyment (and those who can get within 1 foot distance from you), this is a good composition. It's totally unisex.

For me Sandalwood has three distinct factors that combine in differing amounts to form a trifecta accord. There's a dazzling array of different results which can be achieved and as a result lots of fragrances manifest sandalwood in different ways also depending what surrounds them.
This is the closest I've smelled to my default sandalwood, the mental barometer if you will, to which I judge and perceive sandalwood myself. That doesn't mean this is great just that it has a more perfect balance of the three elements which are... creamy,spicy and woody.
Sometimes sandalwood can come across weak and transparent but to me Santalum is as clear a representation as you can get. Perfect balance.
I do detect the tiniest hint of Myrrh but no cinnamon. It's super minimal composition wise but that doesn't matter as sandalwood has it's own rich complexities... I have to say I really enjoy it.
It's not the strongest in the world due to the lack of other notes and spicing usually associated with sandalwood based fragrances.
Longevity is okay but doesn't project much above the skin.

It's good, but too light. A far better version of this is The Art Of Shavings Sandalwood, which, next to Tam Dao is the best sandalwood I've tried. It's a beautiful scent when it drys down, but for the price I want something more noticeable.

I loved the idea of sandalwood + myrrh, but in practice the damn thing turns down quite 'light'. I kind of want to say 'powdery' but I don't think that's quite right. It's an odd, soft sweetness coming out of one of the ingredients. Maybe it's a medicinal piece of the myrrh combining with something sweet out of the cinnamon? Dunno. Net-net, this isn't doing it for me. It's not a superb sandalwood. It's not a superb myrhh. I'm not a huge cinnamon fan in general. It's interesting IMO, but not for me. My first Profumum Roma in the "dislike" file. It was bound to happen eventually!

UPDATE: The day is coming to an end and I should add two things to my review. First, even the long-term drydown has a light sweetness (powdery?) think going to it. It's a very nice sandalwood note, but it's sweetened too much for my tastes. Second, this shit lasts, man. Wow. I applied no more and no less than any other sample I have (a vial decant, no sprayer) and this stuff just keeps going like that damn energizer bunny! So net-net, I'd suggest it's a quality scent IF you like sweet sandalwood.

UPDATE2: I just read the other reviews and wanted to comment. I got the "smoky" thing too like Gosha did - but only at the outset - that faded pretty quickly IME. I also buy 9154mf's argument that it's "too unisex" - I can totally believe they were "fighting towards the middle" during the design - rather than making it stand out one way or the other. And to alfarom, I concur that for the kind of money PR charges, this doesn't rise to the level of what I expect out of a PR juice.

Amber- not listed- is what combines with cinnamon to form that sweetness. Oh, yes chandan is the star here, modified by the bitter coolness of myrhh, balanced by the sweetness- powdery. Although I wish the amber were toned down just a bit to allow the sandalwood more room, this fragrance is still likeable and enthralling, simple and very-Italian in its approach. I keep returning to my sample, intrigued. Strong 'like' from me, but not love.

A minimalistic concoction of cinnamon, sandalwood and myrrh. Smells good and smells exactly like the sum of its parts. Spicy, woody and a bit resinous. Well crafted and honest (with the exception of the price which is anything but).

Rating: 6.5/10

Very silky blend, very sophisticated, warm, lightly smoky and quite sensual. Simple and straightforward in a luxurious way, Santalum is expensive and it smells expensive. It is a bit like the most valuable piece of antique furniture you have ever seen. Not that is smells like wood polish :-), it's more the smell of the most precious, aged wood with a hint of cinnamon and myrrh. Whereas on my skin this is very enjoyable, especially on this cold, crispy winter day, I believe that on a man it could be downright sexy!

This is like an incensey sandalwood. Its nice if you like that sort of thing, but I just like my sandalwoods a little creamier, with say a vanillary base. It's too unisex for my tastes, in fact i think it would be great on a man. I smell the myrrh and cinnamon as much as the sandal in this, and that's why, for me at least, it has a very masculine feel.

Oh, what a great sandalwood fragrance! So simple and well-made, straight to the point! Myrrh and spices are complimentary to this sensual mystic sandalwood. In spite of the presence of cinnamon, this is quite a dry scent and I would love to smell this on a man rather than a woman.
