This stuff smells great, it's definitely gonna be my signature scent for a while. I get tired of smells pretty quickly but this one I think will take a while.

I have no clue what happened here. I had received a very generous sample of this last fall. I wore this many, many times and loved how I was enveloped and caressed by sandalwood, vanilla and exotics beyond my worldly travels.
July in New York.
I revisited this last night at Saks. OMFG! I nearly had a coronary this was simply wretched on me. Was it the hot humid weather? My chemistry? An old store tester? No clue. I ended up smelling old cedar wood, lipstick circa 1965 that my late mother would wear, cumin and armpit.
Crest fallen.
I loved this last fall and winter. Why such a reversal of fortune. If this can only be worn during cold weather it is still worth the absurd price. If I can't wear this in the summer in NY then so be it. I still love you Tom, just a little less.
Glad I didn't buy this full size bottle.
My fragrance search continues.

Beautiful rendition of sandalwood, in fact it is the best sandalwood scent that I have come across to date. There is some spice in the mix as well, which keeps Santal Blush interesting for me. It is a soft, gentle fragrance and I find it a good scent to be layered with Tom Ford's White Suede. Sillage and staying power are medium, and it stays rather close to my skin which I like. Expensive as all Tom Ford products, but a well-crafted fragrance in beautiful packaging. I really like the apothecary inspired bottles, and Santal Blush comes in a pretty rose tinted glass bottle. $210 for 1.7oz/50ml spray.

This is sandalwood in its most beautiful and elegant form. I love the woody floral scent of this. I never smelled a sandalwood like this.

but there is also a strong spice note about this that im not so crazy about. Indian food spices.

sandalwood dominates and last and even till the next day. And i would not be surprised if it lasted longer! The staying power is a dream, staying for almost for forever. The bottle is elegant, perfect for on top of a vanity or bathroom.

Expensive.....very expensive, 260+ swiss franks. Im debating wether to buy it or not.

Boudoir Santal... it has that creamy, sweet and spicy exoticity that is associated with sexy fragrances. I find it heady and forceful. On my skin, it's slightly sweaty and foody-spicy at first. Then it becomes very balmy, creamy, figgy and a bit cloying. Actually, it immediately rings the bells for Vivienne Westwood's Boudoir which was heavy on me whereas it smellt angelic on some others. I get a similar rose,cardamom and sandalwood feeling here. Still, kudos to Tom Ford for creating something different. I'm sure it smells better on many other people and an extra point for that. Also, the bottle is really beautiful.

Tenacious lasting power.

One of my favorite sandalwood fragrances. The sandalwood is creamy and soft, but made a bit bold with spices. It has a fenugreek note that threatens to bring it into curry territory, but not as much as Serge Lutens Santal Blanc. It is also less sweet and generally more subtle than Santal Blanc. Instead, the emphasis is on the gorgeous milky sandalwood, powdery musks, and the smell of skin. It feels exotic but comfortable.

I have sampled this a couple of times and this one really has a life of its own. I absolutely love the initial spray. It is a very creamy almost figgy sandalwood on me. Then as it dries down it continues to alternate between creamy sandalwood and a sharper straight up sandalwood. Literally, it will be creamy and then 5 minutes later back to the sharpness. I have received compliments on this one but can't see buying a FB, but l would be happy with a small decant as I can see it lasting forever.

Initially, I had written it didn't last on me. But lately, I retried it and it lasted until I showered, hours later. It stayed consistent as well. It smells extremely clean on me - my son commented it smelt like soap - but to me, it has a very delicate flower note in it that lingers and is delightful. I don't for a lot of Tom Ford scents because they just don't like my chemistry, but this one is definitely something quite wearable on me as a daily perfume. Hey, smelling like a good soap - nothing wrong with that!!!

Some of Tom Ford's perfumes are just awful to my note. I hate the tobacco and leather scents. But this is something different. Generally, I like nice feminine florals -- like Paris by Yves st. Laurent. This is NOT a floral, but a soft, sort of spicy scent. Very hard to describe. It almost seems floral but is spicy enought o save it from that label. It is very soft and feminine. It's one of those scents you just have to try yourself in order to define it.

I really want to like this one as I'm a huge Tom Ford fan, but this just dosen't work for me. It just smells like sandalwood for and on me
