So I've been enjoying Floris Santal. However, I feel it's just not quite unique enough for my tastes. Any suggestions for one that's similar but with a little more character?

Hi Todd. I am not a fan of the Taylor Sandalwood, and by extension, the 1818. Very dry, musty scents that come across as too "old" for me. I would imagine a lot of gents, including yourself, would really like this one (not saying you are old...), but it doesn't fit my personality.Phog Allen said:Hi Scotto. Interesting. I had never heard that 1818 was similar to Taylor Sandalwood. If so, the Sandalwood is a good scent indeed. I would think that 1818 would be a better bargain since you get 6.8oz. for about $50. That may have saved me a few bucks since I was considering buying a bottle of the Sandalwood. Do you have a decant of the Taylor Sandalwood? I might be interested in trying it that way. Thanks.
Phog Allen said:LOL Scotto! I take no offense the old musty reference. I am a curmudgeon and proud of it. Wow, it is interesting how scents affect people. On ME, the 1818 and Santal have a slightly sweet note. In fact, if the 1818 were a "sweet" fragrance it would probably be too much for me. I noticed the Floris Sandalwood on your decant lists and was most intrigued. BTW, that is one heck of a listing you have and it's a great service to all at B&B. I don't how much you have tied up in all those scents but it would scare me to death. Your decant prices are a steal. Good job bud.
