Thankful that I got to try a free sample of this, as it is uber-pricey, but... It is divine and wears on my skin beautifully. Most undoubtedly this is a VERY sandalwood fragrance. And this sandalwood perfectly blends the creamy aspects of the note with the peppery spicy ones (ala Burberry Brit for example). But even though one note truly sings out and sings well in this composition, it is not at all boring or one dimensional. Other spices such as pink peppercorn and cumin, I believe, jazz it up while the cumin also, as it dries, gives the scent a subtle "skin: quality (note: this is not an overly sweet, overpowering, or sweaty cumin by any means) that relaxes the whole thing into a keen alert sensuality. Think of woman on the prowl, but not wearing plunging necklines or overly stacked stilettos. A more tailored, well-owned sexiness takes place here. A soapier rose lightly splays out on top, just to give a feminine (or if your a man, a cleaner soft touch) Either gender wears this. Although I see it as maybe slightly more feminine, but it is a close call between feminine and unisex leaning feminine. In short, this smells Heavenly and seems to play out superbly on my skin. This projects well without screaming out the way some Tom Ford's (Black Orchid, at least on me, for example) can and do, but lasts a long time and stays full out for a long while.Would repurchase if I save many pennies. :) LOVE

Invest in this! It's a neck-turner and it's such a romantic/edgy scent. My fiancée was in love with it as soon as he smelled it on me. It reminded me of Versace Crystal Noir but it's more oriental and a little of it lasts throughout the day. This is now my signature scent and the packaging is adorable. I highly recommend it.

Love at first sniff. Out of every fragrance I've ever smelled, it is my favorite. In some odd way it's an olfactory addiction for me. Like a perfume drug. I get pencil shavings, rose and sandalwood predominantly. And it's a beautiful thing. Cumin and cinnamon make this just a tad spicy, but it's completely organic, creamy and refined. It doesn't come off stinky, as it's polished by the florals. I think it's simple, beautiful, and perfect. It smells like a natural, secret human scent, like what a person is meant to smell like when you're close enough to steal a hot, intimate whiff. I'm one of those people that love the being buffeted by the smell of people as we pass by, and this smells beautifully human, slightly dirty and sensual. Yes innocent enough, thanks to the rose, to be suitable for day wear. Removed one lipstick because the price of his private blends is just too high.

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. Cumin is usually a "no go" note for me, but surprisingly enough, in Santal Blush the cumin is so superbly well blended and it does not come across at all as sweaty. This 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 Private Collection bottles, and Santal Blush comes in a pretty rose tinted glass bottle. $220 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.
