In the past I have had Tam Dao in EDT concentration. Right now I have it in EDP concentration. I am a sandalwood lover, and it is very high quality in this fragrance. Diptyque's website says the sandalwood used in the fragrance is from East India (Mysore) and takes extractions from trees over 60 years old. I can also pick up on the cedar and cypress. It is definitely a woody scent. The EDT …Read more

I got this as a gift for my father, a former master woodworker before he lost his vision. He loves the scent of a wood workshop, so I was naturally enticed to treat him to some Tam Dao. It certainly delivers the aromatic scent of sandalwood,cedar and rosewood, but the dry down is the most lovely chapter. Woody/evergreen scent very quickly calms into a soft amber powder withe faintest hint of …Read more

One of my top 3 favorites. This is a feminine woodsy fragrance with a hint of freshness. Hard to describe but it's smokey and delicate without being cloying like some other woodsy scents out there (Santal 33, I'm talking about you.) To me, this is a gentler more delicate version of that. Good for day or night. I have the EDT.

This is one of those "great scent, lousy chemistry" things:

On my skin, TD starts out as the perfect sandalwood:
Creamy, velvety smooth, meditative, introspective, exotic... The dream sandalwood.
And out of nowhere, it makes a screeching halt into a burning cedar pit, which someone tried to smother with... plastic bags.

Now, on 2 friends of mine and …

I've always been interested in the house of Diptyque and luckily I stumbled across this beauty when purchasing samples on eBay. This is now my signature fragrance. The perfect woody fragrance, not over powering and very wearable. Many people say this is a winter fragrance but I wear it year round.

I think I'm alright at writing makeup reviews, but there's something about fragrance that makes me wish I could just draw an MS Paint portrait of a stick figure either sniffing their wrist like it's loaded with meth OR running away from a steaming pile of cartoon dung.

I love the smell of sandalwood but most sandalwood fragrances smell too figgy on me. Unfortunately Tam Dao is no exception. After a raw, robust and realistic start, it quickly mellows to a creamy figginess as if I layered it with Philosykos:) It's not too sweet or cloying but not exactly what I'm looking for in a sandalwood fragrance, either.

Medium sillage and good lasting …

Based on reviews here I purchased a sample vial to try out. I agree that a moderate dab or single spray finds this scent only lasting 2 hours and only noticeable to you. Be generous and perhaps dab on underclothing so that your body heat will make it last longer. It's green and resiny, grassy fresh with a touch of deeply flavoured manuka honey. Slightly industrial so unisex. Gives you …Read more

I'm getting soft, creamy, wood, but wow. Like zero sillage. Obviously, I'd need to use more or this is indeed a wood for summertime wear.

This starts out with a sharp, green note, and shortly after dries down to a delicious, creamy sandalwood. It's a very pleasant, easy to wear, unisex fragrance, but has virtually no sillage. I have yet to find a Diptyque fragrance that projects well. Their longevity is decent, but most people won't notice the fragrance you're wearing unless they bury their faces in your neck ;)
