light, clean, dry wood
This is my favourite Sandalwood fragrance so far. The carrot on top gives it a very warm-woody and dry feel, not soapy at all, which sandalwood often can be.
It is not a boring or simple fragrance but I do use it as a layering perfume for balance mostly on more masculine-leaning green-ish fragrances. I think it adds elegance and cool sophistication.
I am unsure about the longevity of it. After a few hours, I cannot detect it on myself anymore at all. I still have gotten compliments for it, but only by people who came pretty close, like for a hug hello. I guess it dries down to a very pleasant skin-scent.

Fresh, green, different...
In search of the perfect sandalwood fragrance, I eventually landed at Santal du Pacifique. Perris Monte Carlo was completely unknown to me as a brand and I was very excited to test it, because the pyramid also made me curious. In many fragrances, sandalwood is accompanied by strong spices or by very sweet vanilla, which sometimes spoils it for me.
The start is unusually fresh for a woody-creamy fragrance, almost seems a bit aquatic but not in a negative sense. I guess the listed carrot, which I perceive as such at most very alienated, but which creates a fresh, green unsweetness. After the fresh opening, the scent progression is rather linear, as described by the previous speaker. I perceive the creamy notes well, slightly coconutty and also completely unsweet. The floral notes, as well as musk I can not smell out in detail, they are harmoniously matched and support the overall picture. Sandalwood remains then, with the woods in the background, until the drydown the main actor and holds the perfect balance between dryness and creaminess.
Conclusion: a really pleasant, different sandalwood fragrance, which is very interesting, but does not quite offer what I was looking for. Who is looking for a completely unsweet, fresh and unseasoned fragrance, should try the times! Durability and sillage I see in the upper midfield.

My salvation for the summer
As far as summer scents are concerned, I have not been very successful in my search so far.
Actually, I wear rather sweet, vanilla scents, I like oriental or spicy creations and depending on the perfume I sometimes think that some of these scents need warmth to develop well.
Nevertheless, at over 30°C I often feel the urge for a fresh or refreshing fragrance But how could it be any other way; I am also a bit at war with citric fragrances, which unfortunately often remind me of WC cleaners, cleaning agents, futile attempts to cover up sweat or flushes Among my clean scents there was also no suitable candidate to make everything too sweet, creamy or powdery.
I wanted a clean, dry, unsweet scent and at some point in my search I got stuck with Santal du Pacifique.
Comments/statements sounded good, so I wanted to test the fragrance.

Scent:
The beginning is a bit diffuse and "wild", maybe it's the carrot, but I have to admit that I can't imagine much under the scent of carrot and now I don't smell authentic carrots either.
But the start soon settles down and an absolutely straightforward scent emerges.
Sandalwood is present and clearly perceptible, the milky notes create a slightly creamy impression, but you should not expect a thick, rich cream, but rather a very light body milk with sandalwood scent. The dry woods are also directly involved. Musk gives the right shot of cleanliness and purity to it.
I cannot smell orchids and violets. Unfortunately I do not know Gurjun balm as a single fragrance and therefore I cannot smell it here The fragrance is completely unsweet and despite its milky notes dry, but not powdery or dusty.
Even though Santal du Pacifique is a delicate and light fragrance, the silage is still present. I would describe the shelf life as medium.

Conclusion:
Santal du Pacifique is a gentle, woody and absolutely unsweet fragrance. The musk makes it clean and even though I bought it as a summer scent, it is a perfect unisex all-rounder if you want to smell light and well-groomed. The fragrance is rather a well perceivable Duftaura.
I personally cannot confirm the comparison with Tam Dao. However, I only know the EdP from Tam Dao, which for me has a strong herbaceous cypress note throughout, which does not occur at all in Santal du Pacifique. I would describe Santal du Pacifique as milky, delicate, sometimes almost coconut-like, while Tam Dao EdP is herbaceous-harsh throughout.
All in all, I am glad to have finally found a suitable candidate as a summer scent, where nothing sticks, which is not sweet, heavy or sugary or where you can hardly breathe in front of powder.
So summer may come.
