Wonderful, elegant all-rounder
I first came across this fragrance at the YSL stand in a shopping center in Zurich. As I had some time on my hands and YSL Tuxedo was one of my absolute favorite fragrances at the time, I smelled my way through half of the Le Vestiaire des Parfums range. Rue de L'Université was the only one that left a lasting impression on me and I would have loved to take a bottle straight away. However, as the fragrance is only available in a 125ml size and I was flying to Spain two days later with only hand luggage, a sample had to suffice.

Arriving in Spain, outside temperature at a pleasant 25°C, I could hardly get enough of the fragrance, even though, as always, I had a selection of bottlings of my favorites with me. In my opinion, Rue de L'Université is really very versatile, but contrary to local opinion, I think it suits summer best.

The fragrance is not too overpowering and the individual notes are really beautifully coordinated. The fragrance profile can certainly be described as creamy, but without being boring. It is certainly not a particularly exciting fragrance, the progression is fairly linear and I would describe the fragrance profile as transparent to a certain extent. But that is exactly what makes this fragrance for me. It doesn't overwhelm and doesn't inspire with umpteen different notes, but instead with an incredibly beautifully coordinated composition.

The longevity is excellent and the sillage is also very good for this fragrance in my opinion. It is definitely present, but it does not roar.

In summary, as mentioned in the title, this fragrance is a wonderful all-rounder for me that exudes a certain elegance without being overbearing.

The end of a long journey
I have been looking for THE sandalwood scent for quite some time. And now I hold the "Holy Grail" of sandalwood scents in my hands, so to speak. I have to thank the perfume and of course a friendly member of this great community from whom I was allowed to buy a small bottling. At the first test, this fragrance captivated me. In my mind's eye I saw a distinguished gentleman in an elegant single-breasted suit in the middle of decadent hustle and bustle.
He radiates a calm, which makes him seem unapproachable but at the same time radiates warmth and reliability.
That's exactly what that smell is. The sandalwood is right there when you first spray it on. Without those annoying and omnipresent top notes of citrus, fruity and all kinds of other curiosities with which marketing experts try to bait the customer.
This fragrance spits honestly from the first minute. But it still has an ace up its sleeve for a later stitch, and that's this subtle leather note. Not prominent, not at all, but not always easily involved in the background. In the foreground, however, it's woody. Sandalwood, which is trimmed in the masculine direction by a hint of cedar wood. By far not like Tam Dao and also completely without this oatmeal milk aroma like in Santal Complet or Sacred Wood.
24 Rue is a fragrance of men through and through mMn. But of course everybody is allowed to wear what he/she likes. The amber in the base I don't perceive so explicitly but what I do perceive is a certain softness that the sandalwood gets without getting creamy. It remains clearly woody. Not a dark wood but rather a friendly light wood. The sillage is clear in the first hour and then retreats "gentleman like" but if you come closer than half a meter or pass by you will definitely notice it.
For me it is definitely the best sandalwood scent even if of course everything is subjective.
Anyway, I have completed part of my journey in the universe of fragrances. Everything that comes along in this direction is bonus.

Classy Sandalwood
Wearing this makes me feel like a young, successful Englishman (I'm American) in his casual weekend clothes. Like a handsome guy, about 38yrs old, with stylish hair, a tailored fit black leather jacket, crisp white t-shirt, designer jeans and grey suede chelsea boots hopping into his Aston Martin Vantage for a Saturday cruise.

Just a really nice, quality smelling sandalwood & suede fragrance with a hint of incense. Woody and elegant. The bottles from this line, Le Vestiaire des Parfums - Edition Couture, are understated and gorgeous. All black, industrial looking & feeling. Magnetic cap is always a plus and the sprayer is excellent.

In the USA this line can only be purchased from Neiman Marcus. Yes, these frags are expensive. However, you are getting a 4.2oz bottle for that chunk of change. For someone who owns a lot of frags, this will last me a VERY long time.
