The smooth operator
This scent, ill just say off top, beautiful. Soft, it's gentle, gathers you in a bundle of fig milk & just shows you how elegant you can smell. This scent is different, the fig milk is an amazing addition to these notes. It takes the sandal wood smell & smooths that background almost immediately when you smell this scent. I get a sense of Le Labo Santal 33, but it's not as harsh & the fig milk, again, make this a SMOOTH OPERATOR.

Just enjoy lol as long as u like a good soft smelling sweet scent that provides something slightly different, get your nose on this!

Upscale White Party
You've moved to a new city for that well-paying job and are invited to a white party by colleagues. It's late summer, the evenings are still warm, but you're not crushed by the heat. What to wear? A white short dress is too informal, so it becomes white Marlene pants, a white shirt, and a matching blazer if necessary. All rather unisex and classy, because tonight is not the night to seduce anyone. The party takes place late at night in a courtyard in a large location, you are welcomed by a sea of warm lights and candles. There are a lot of well-heeled people dressed in white with champagne glasses in their hands at bar tables. More like generation 30+. Fine appetizers are served with green, unripe figs. Daring combination, but something different, I think to myself. It gets a little cooler, the wooden benches absorb the humidity and you notice a sweet smell. Cocktails are being mixed at the bar, a favorite seems to be Pina Colada. I watch the action and chat with several attractive people, sweat glistening on their faces. The conversations remain very superficial and distant, it takes me out of my comfort zone, I like it for now but on other days I wish for more warmth.

Santal blanc smells green-natural and synthetic-milky at the same time to me, never smelled it like that before. It doesn't really fit into my collection, but somehow I just like it and I had to keep smelling it!
In my opinion, it has a luxurious distance and still has a leeeeicht Animalik in the drydown and on clothes I perceive quite clearly coconut!

Creamy fig in a fine wooden bowl
I smell this fine unbelievably good creamy fig which lies gently bedded in a noble sandalwood bowl. The tonka bean has hooked on the musk and drops in - a nice company that goes well together and connects to tell a clean, pure and fragrant story. Here one feels well and well taken care of, after about 1 hour the scent has developed a little warmth - fine fine. A hint but only a hint of fruit resonates - but very transparent. I would consider this perfume at the end of the day as a creamy, slightly green-fresh and clean companion. Fits to ladies and gentlemen, is not too extreme but a very noble fine perfume. Great for spring and summer as it has beautiful notes of sweet floral nuances-violets? No of everything a little bit, I say it yes a really very nice company.

Shimmering cream wood on fig leaf
Fig, only very tender and fresh, completely ungourmand and not overwhelming, because the Koskosvibe, which fig often has, only appears when you want to smell it, maximum coconut water, a few drops. Light citric at the beginning for the freshness blends beautifully with the greenish fig tone.
The sandalwood soon pushes itself over the green fig. It looks reddish brown for my nose and adds full and soft wood to the fragrance. It always remains creamy, the wood shimmers, the addition "blanc" in the name fits and has nothing to do with white bloomers, even if one can discover in the heart a little iris, some amyris, with an exact smell.
All this is framed by the sandalwood, which clearly stands in the centre, milky, tenderly melting and creamy. This way the fragrance remains until the end. Round and harmonious with a good presence. He likes AugustA better every time.
