Shawn Maher - Chatillon Lux
Shawn: Santal Auster Parfum Extrait melds the ancient cultural traditions and rituals that incorporate the most sought-after of woods: Mysore sandalwood. The sandalwood accord used in Santal Auster is rich and creamy with powdery notes that are evocative of this freshly cut wood. This accord incorporates sandalwood essential oil made from sustainably harvested sandalwood that is reminiscent of this classic and highly sought-after scent.
Supporting this sandalwood accord are precious ceremonial oils from the Far East, the types of oils that would be used to anoint royalty. The rich, leathery notes of oud mix together with the rich, refined incense notes of opoponax and styrax and the subtly earthy and animalic undertones of dark-aged patchouli and castoreum.
This perfume does not shout or scream to announce its presence, but rather confidently waits for others to pass by and become transfixed by its allure. Applying Santal Auster feels like a ritual with its closely held, intimate scent that emanates peacefully from the skin all day long.
Dave: Fresh, dry sandalwood and rich oud powdered by styrax, intimately warm with patchouli and creamy animalics. The quiet calm of ancient ritual.
Santal Auster Notes: Sandalwood, oud, opoponax, styrax, patchouli and castoreum.
