I heard this scent was a must for sandalwood lovers, and a friend kindly gave me a sample. The Laura Tonatto line is difficult to obtain, unfortunately. The notes are orange, lemon, lavender, black tea, and sandalwood.
It is a sweet sandalwood, slightly resinous in the top notes, and smells to me like there is a good amount of patchouli in the base, and possibly some amber as well. Plaisir, my favorite scent in Tonatto's line so far, also has patchouli, but in Plaisir it is subdued; in Sandalo it is rather overwhelming to a patchouli-hater like myself. I will give this another try, but doubt it is going to work for me. I will stick with my beloved Diptyque Tam Dao.
Another sandalwood possibility: I did a quick sniff of the Sandalwood Eau de Toilette by The Art of Shaving at Neiman Marcus over the weekend, and it seemed interesting. Will try to get a sample of this on my next visit.
