This is a perfectly soft and nice fragrance, but it doesn't really evoke cashmere for me. I get clean, white musk, a distinct vanilla, and a backnote of amber (which is unexpected and somewhat out-of-place to me in a "cashmere" fragrance). I don't really get cinnamon, though, so much as a distinct lavender note; this is not spicy to me, but slightly powdery in the way that many bath products are. I really don't get much sense of the sandalwood, either; the white musk overpowers the woodsiness on me. Like the reviewer below, I get zero echoes of Organza Indecence from this fragrance, but I much prefer OI, as the sandalwood note in this is virtually nonexistent for me. Not bad, not offensive, but not impressive, either.

I ordered a sample from Sonoma Scent Studio because I had read that it was very similar to my beloved Organza Indecence. Well after getting over my initial disappointment that the two smell nothing alike, I came at this fragrance with an open mind. At first I thought, "Unique, cozy, nice, hmmmm...*shrug*." After a couple days though, I was craving this scent like an alcoholic craves booze. It is a creamy, full-bodied musk/vanilla base, with a hint of sweet cinnamon-spice playing at the edges. This cinnamon spice never overwhelms the composition, however -- unlike in Organza Indecence, where the cinnamon blast dominates throughout. I recently swapped for a small bottle of it and am enjoying it alot.

My review isn't nearly as sophisticated, but I figured I'd just be as direct as possible. To me, this smells like cinnamon candy breath. I mean this in a good way though, I think it's a nice scent for cooler weather. I can smell a bit of the vanilla and amber if I think about it more, but my initial impression stands.

Whenever I get into a fragrance funk because it's been so long that I found anything interesting, I re-test my SSS samples. Today I reached for Cashmere, a reworking of the wonderful Cashmere Woods (which is no longer on the website but you can still do a custom blend if you'd like). Cashmere Woods was a soft, cozy vanilla-woods blend, as warm and comforting as your favorite fleece blanket but as subtle, smooth and refined as cashmere itself. Cashmere is slightly less sweet and a bit muskier. To me, it's slightly more sophisticated and sexier, if only for the fact that the cozy vanilla note is subdued and the sensual musk comes to the foreground. This is what fragrances like Kenzo Amour should smell like, but don't. Both are lovely and both are a must for anyone who is craving a beautiful, soft comfort scent for the fall and winter. Also, SSS offers some of the best values online, considering the top-notch quality of their fragrances. Notes: sandalwood, cinnamon, vanilla, amber, and musk.
