*Sandalsilver was formerly named Skin
Notes: Bergamot, Citrus fruits of Sicily, Mysore sandalwood, spices.
Pros: Wonderful "second-skin" scent, very comforting. I took an instant liking to it.
Cons: The sandalwood is powdery and sweet, but doesn't really smell like sandalwood for the first hour or so...in fact I don't really think of it as a sandalwood scent.
Longevity and sillage: Both are moderate.
Where can I buy it? $135 for 100ml edp spray at Aedes.com
Reminds me of? YSL Nu edp minus the iris and incense; the topnotes of Kingdom; Christian Dior Dune (pour femme).
Bottleworthy? Hmmm, it's a little pricey, but this is something I could see myself wearing A LOT!
The Bottom Line: Beautiful and aromatic, a familiar scent. More masculine than Dior Dune, not as rich as YSL Nu, this has found a special place in my heart as an unusual take on Mysore. The scent slowly unfolds with only hints of sandalwood and faint traces of patchouli against a light musk. I just don't know quite how to describe it, but I love it.
