I bought this perfume in 1991 and still have only used about 1/8 of it. Granted, a microscopic amount is all you need to reek of incense all day. I like the smell, but it is much too strong.

Between 2.5 and 3 stars for me, the reason being that I would like it more if it was slightly less sweet and less powdery. Warm, spicy, woody, sweet, powdery. No strong patchouli that I can detect,...

Woody Sandalwood oil applies smelling like soapy sandalwood, then dries down to smell like slightly sweet, powdery sandalwood and really nothing else. The wear is very good--it lasted me all day....

This is the BEST sandalwood scent out there, hands down. This does not have a patchouli scent as other reviewers have stated. They should have wandered a bit further on the shelf and sniffed the...

I loved this in the past, and still appreciate its intense, warm patchouliness, but I can never wear it again as it holds an extreme and instantaneous scent-memory of a person and time I'd rather...

This smells like pure patchouli to me. A slightly different patchouli than the other Body Shop patchouli oil, but headshop patchouli nonetheless. Sandalwood is mild, gentle, and dry. It's difficult...

I first purchased Sandalwood over 10 years ago. This was my HG at one time as I love the smell of Sandalwood. Also, it's an inexpensive oil that's long lasting on your skin. Now, I prefer to...

So I'm just a dirty ol' hippy who likes nothing more than a bit of patchouli or sandalwood and this fragrance from The Body Shop is an absolute favourite. On me, it starts out brightly woodsy...

Mmmm...I love this. I'm really into spicy, warm, woodsy smells, so I was instantly drawn to this! It does have a very faint "soapy clean" smell, but it's nothing to deter you from the rich...

I used to love the smell of Opium. It had/has such a woodsy, spicy scent to it, that's almost sexy. I was going to break down and buy it again, but I have a ton of perfumes and recently purchased...

I always put some of this (and ananya) on me when i'm in TBS, but i've never actually bought it before (i'm not sure why). I do love it though, smells like a woody exotic scent, and when I...

I am not a big fan of sandalwood only fragrances but this one is excellent. Just a few drops and you smell in a heavenly way! It makes me think about perfume oils in antique Greece... intense yet...

There are many different kinds of sandalwood. Many are soapy or cloyingly sweet or nose-searingly strong. Often sandalwood is sharp and masculine. Often you can't scrub it off fast enough (and...

This is an oil, so it's potent, lasts well, and stays pretty close to the skin. All good things, as far as I'm concerned. The scent is androgynous-masculine to me, another thing I look for in a...

Mmm love it. At first it seems very masculine - VERY! But after 20 or so minutes it softens to a sweet-woody-caramel-y smell. Very longlasting also. One of my favs.
