Used Floris Santal and liked it

Hi folks, I used TOBS Sandalwood Soap yesterday and followed it up with the Santal, I like it straight away quite light but very distinctive. I put it on at about 9 in the morning and at about 6 in the evening my Wife came home and remarked at how nice I smelled. I could still get a very faint smell about 12 hours after putting it on.

I have used it again today and am pretty happy.

Cheers.
 
There's something in the drydown on this one that puts me off. I wanted to like it quite a bit.... but the drydown kind of turns my stomach.

For me, Santal was fine.
I must admit to preferring AOS sandalwood slightly.
But the Floris is a bit brighter and lighter, to my nose.

Hi Wazza, excellent stuff. I will be found to trying out the others soon.

Cheers.
 
I emailed Floris requesting a sample of Santal and they kindly sent me a variety of samples - Santal, and to a lesser degree, Cefiro, were my preferences.
 
Hi Bandito, yes that's what I did I'm very happy with the Santal and the Elite was pretty good as well.
 
Shaved again today with Santal.
