Alas, CC10 had no staying power on me. I adore the scent - a heavenly sandalwood - but it just doesn't last on my skin.

10 Corso Como is all dry, lofty sandalwood, smoky desert resins, and earthy, weirdly off-kilter - almost alien or at least otherworldy- florals. It calls to mind a mysterious, aromatic wooden chest, unearthed by a strange sandstorm. At once both sensual and spiritual, and without a doubt a very, very handsome scent, I find myself frequently craving it and nothing else will do.

Definitely nice, very linear straight sandalwood on me. It is light and refreshing sandalwood, not heavy or thick. Not mysterious or especially captivating, but very pleasant and smooth. Does not smell in any way cheap or spicy on my skin at all. Not overly woody either, just well done.
I'm not amazingly impressed by it, but it is very very nice. Overall it doesn't really grab me in any way, hence my average "OK" opinion for it.
I'd have to say I prefer Tam Dao to this. It is more unique and memorable of a sandalwood, much more intrigue, more intense, more of a transportation of time and place to dense west asian jungles.

A repeat buy fragrance for me. Love it. Its not as heavenly as it was in the 1990's but still good. Men love it on me.
You smell gooooooooood
is the line used...
Sweet and woody. Like dust, deserts and incense.

I had heard so much about this, I had to try it. I know it's supposed to be a sandalwood/wood based scent, however my skin chemistry evidently does not know this. I get no woods at all...pity. I also don't get any rose, which rarely works on me. For some strange reason, this is almost a gourmand scent on me...kind of like a sweet caramel light floral...I'm no good at describing florals, but I wouldn't actually consider this floral, although it does have a light sweetness I can't pin down. I've had several compliments on it....someone at a fast food drive thru evidently could smell it coming from my car and complimented me...along with my SO...both said it was light, pretty and unusual. I'm not much of a floral person, so maybe the floral part is hitting a blind spot in my sniffer. I do really like this tho, and I will purchase again. Another interesting thing I've found is that mixed with Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab's "Alice", makes this totally incredible. 10CC lasts forever on me and has decent throw, Personally, for me, if I want sandalwood (which I love) I will use my Tokyo Milk "Honey and the Moon". It's also the bomb.

Sandalwood lovers.....take notice!! This is a *must sniff*. This is a sultry sweet sandalwood, frankincense, musk, rose, geranium, vetiver and rare Malay oud wood oil.....upon first spritz, you get a cozy sandalwood, and woods, an *old world* feel within this scent is probably due to little speckles of frankincense that wafts ever so softly.
If there is rose in this one, it does not bloom on my skin...and the vetiver is muted by the woods. The geranium plays with the woods to create a drydown that brings this concoction to it's peak!
10 CC is truly magical and shines its brightest in cool crisp weather.!!

Very spicy fragrance that's pretty much unique. Smells like Costes, but while Costes reminds me of a toilet freshener this is much more classy. Although I like the scent, it's a skin scent basically and has no sillage whatsoever. Furthermore, the lasting power is not that good on me, 4-5 hours top. Should probably layer with shower gel and body lotion as well, if you want anyone to notice. I like it very much, but I feel I would empty the 50ml bottle in a month or two if I ever bought it, so it's not for me. The incense is subdued IMO compared to other incense fragrances (like CDG Incense series), so if you're looking basically for an incense fragrance, perhaps you should look elsewhere.

This is sadly another fragrance just not for me. All I get is incense and burning woody incense - it smells like a temple. It's fairly light but there is no depth or interest in this one for me.
Age: 44-55 Skin: Oily, Olive Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
Smells like plums and incense, and is delicious and sexy!!!

I do not have enough words to say about this fragrance and it's goodness. I was told about this over and over before I decided to try, based on reviews on the fragrance board. Once I owned this in the solid perfume compact, I had to have more. The solid compact was so well made, it made most other perfume solid compacts fail by comparison. They used heavy rescycled crome type metal with a slider top, and concentrated perfume inside. Easy to carry, perfect to wear..day or night. The Oud wood is amazing and the silage is at least 18 hours on me. That is great, because my body eats perfume fast. A quality perfume with a fragrance like no other. Worth every drop. I now own this is 4 forms. The body oil is fantastic too.

On the search for a signature scent, I ordered a bunch of samples from Perfumed Court. This scent is often mentioned on MUA and since I love Sandalwood especially, I thought I'd give it a try. I've seen comparisons of 10CC to Tam Dao and while they have similiar notes, I don't find them alike. 10CC starts off with very strong notes of Rose on me while Tam Dao is much more spicy and almost cinammon like. I tend to like woody scents mixed with light florals so I was surprised how much better Tam Dao was for me in the opening notes. The rose was just too heady for my taste. As for the drydown, at least with my chemistry, I found 10CC to be a very dry mix of cedar and sandalwood, almost too headshop for me. Tam Dao on the other hand was a warm, creamy sandalwood and was tempered by something sweet (maybe Ambrigris?) in the drydown. So lovely. I didn't find either of them to be particularly long lasting but between the two, I much, much prefer Tam Dao.

Woody and incense filled smell that drys down gently to a clean soapy smell. Surprisingly wearable on an everyday level to me. It have depth, but it's not offensively pungent. Like the vintage bottle design, too. But this one does not stand out enough for me to be a 5star perfume

First, let me just say that this is my "go to" fragrance and that I LOVE wood fragrances in general. When I received this as a sample, I fell instantly in love! It's the perfect dry, sweet, wood and rose combination that I've been searching for! Needless to say, I've since purchased 2 bottles of it to have (and this seems to be good since the last reviewer said it's been reformulated - at least I'm nice and stocked up). It's what I would consider a sweet, rose, cedar/sandalwood, but not overtly so. It is definitely sweeter and more feminine than Tam Dao (I like that one too - but I like this one more). I'd say this is the feminine side of unisex (kind of like L'Artisan Timbuktu with less lemon and more rose - 10CC and this go together fabulously btw) and I don't think I'd let my husband wear this (but he couldn't have it anyway LOL). To me this smells exactly like my grandmother's old cherry wood chest sweetened with some sachets. I loved that chest - and I love this too! If you love wood scents that lean on the feminine side, go for it and try this - you won't be sorry! My signature scent! Oh, and I wanted to add - I get no CK Obsession from this (and believe me, I wouldn't like it if I did - my mother-in-law bathes in that stuff - she's like a walking bottle LOL)!

I bought this scent last fall after sampling through Luckyscent. For me , this was not love at first sniff. I put the sample away for about a month. Tried it again and could not stop craving it. It is slighly reminiscent of Avignon, but is highly more wearable and enjoyable to me. Everyone on this site has done a great job of describing Corso Como. So I'll spare the details. If you love woody, characteristic, non-generic frags, I would def. try it. Unfortunately, I just found out that it has been reformulated as Sandalwood is at a premium and there is a shortage of it. I am reluctant to try the reformulation...I've heard it wears more like a department store version and that could be a bad thing...

I received a sample of 10 Corso Como as a freebie. I tried it on a cool, crisp morning without much in the way of expectations and it totally wowed me! Cedar is the predominant note in 10 Corso Como but it is tempered with sweet sandalwood, musk and light incense. Having mentioned the incense, I must say that I normally find incense off-putting (no Bond Chinatown for me!). However, 10 Corso Como did not have that effect at all. Rather, the incense note was warm and woody, kind of like incense that you might find burning in a sophisticated apartment in Milan in October.
I found 10 Corso Como to be very similar to Ormonde Jayne's Isfarkand, only with a bit more warmth and without the pink pepper rush.
In closing, 10 Corso Como is an expensive smelling scent that would be the perfect to wear in the fall, just as the leaves are turning and you snuggle into a Loro Piana cashmere sweater for the first time that season.

This is a truly interesting, artful fragrance, one of the few incense fragrances that don't evoke churches or dark spaces, but sunlight and warm woods. For me it begins softly with sandalwood and the rare oud wood note, progresses into a sweetish rose and geranium note...and then sort of stays there a bit, mixing a bit of musk and vetiver. It is a very subtle, woody-incense fragrance that nevertheless possesses just a bit of floral to sweeten it up, but it is definitely not too feminine -- I'd call this a soft masculine scent, almost, but it's also not mannish. It's very sophisticated, warm, and just a touch mysterious, probably from that light incense note. I think I appreciate this scent more than I would wear this, almost like a fine wine or an artwork. It honestly does not last very long on me (which is rare, since most woody-incense scents last FOREVER on my skin) and I prefer scents that have a bit of 'waft' to them -- this one sticks almost too close to the body. The lack of real staying power is a sticking point for me; if I'm going to be paying this much for a bottle, then I'd like it to last a bit longer. But this is incredibly well-done, very individualistic, sensual, artful, discreet, luxurious -- very true to the boutique that it is named after.

sandalwood, frankincense, musk, rose, geranium, vetiver and rare Malay oud wood oil
I was a bit disappointed that 10 cc began with that medicinally-lanolin fragrance that Iíve noticed in other incense fragrances. It was also a bit musky, *just* enough to be *vaguely* (oh, so vaguely) reminiscent of Muscs Koublai Khan. I noted quite a bit of cedar in the outset, but not nearly as much as in Bois díEncens. The rose and geranium quickly come in to sweeten the brew, lending a femininity to the exoticism. However, through it all, 10 Corso Como remains somewhat muted, not over-the-top, and quite, quite light. I really didnít notice the incense that much, and what I did pick out wasnít churchy, nor was it headshop-like. Rather, it was delicate and airyÖlike a clean well-kept home of a person who just happens to burn incense on occasion. Probably a great incense fragrance for those who donít like incense.

Quick chop my arm off. There is something in this fragrance that reminds me of Obsession (which I detest). I will be scrubbing my skin off to remove this stuff.
Funny, I do not get any of the notes people are mentioning in their reviews. Just awful stuff and nothing redeeming, in my estimation.
I like old Victoria's Secret and I love Coco but to me this smells nothing like either of them. Yech!
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
Creamy, spicey, somewhat masculine goodness. Similar to Chanel Coco but cleaner and stronger in a more masculine way, not in the fearlessly feminine Coco way. Amazing sillage (and I only dabbed it on since all I have is a sample).
Age: 36-43 Skin: Combination Hair: Blond Eyes: Blue
Whoever said this is similar to the original Victoria by Victoria's Secret, they are right! When I first sampled it, there was an initial huge blast of citrus, followed by an almost immediate spicy-woodsy drydown. No Victoria to my nose at first, but 30 minutes later, and there is definately some resemblence. One hour past that, and it's mostly sandelwood. All floral is gone. Very masculine, too much so for my taste.
