A Fresh Scent with a Rich Base: Silver Mountain Water
Silver Mountain Water is pure and cool. Wear it and you’re transported to snowy mountains, breathing in crisp, high-altitude air. But its sweet freshness, a mixture of citrus, green tea, and black currant buds, eventually opens up to a velvety backbone of sandalwood and musk that you won’t be able to stop smelling. Consider it entry-level sandalwood.
A Classic Woods Cologne: Bois du Portugal
The scent of choice of dapper men, this blend proves that the combination of herbal notes and woods creates a timeless mix. Here, you’ll find sandalwood matched with a cast of other forest-y elements—lavender, cedar, vetiver, and amber—for an ultra-masculine vibe.
A Bold, True Sandalwood Blend: Original Santal
This rich scent, a nod to India, revolves around smooth-smelling sandalwood from Mysore. All of the ingredients serve to add to its distinct warmth. Top notes of Jamaican ginger, orange tree absolute and Sicilian lemon add fiery zest, Lavender and rosemary bring a compelling herbal edge, and a cozy mix of vanilla, Tonka bean, cinnamon, and Tonkin musk round out the sandalwood base. Sandalwood devotees: This is your signature scent
