Lightly spiced, smooth sandalwood, balmy florals of ylang-ylang, jasmine, and creamy hints of powdered vanilla. This talc is as divine as the fragrance and holds its scent just as long, scenting my clothing beautifully.
EDIT 2014: Mine is vintage and nearly finished. I'm not sure at this point if I will buy the new formulation as it probably won't smell as good nor be as lasting...I think most of the perfume world's new formulas smell cheap and thin and are an overpriced disappointment.
LOVE this talc, I use it to layer with my Samsara lotion, EDT & EDP. I love the talc in the little shaker. I am going to try the Ritual powder too. Very nice and still every close to scent. The more I wear Samsara the more I fall in love with it.
