Best Sandalwood Cologne

In this article, we present a selection of 8 Best Sandalwood Cologne. Sometimes warm, sometimes intense, the fragrances including sandalwood will perfectly accompany you all year round.

Sandalwood is one of the most precious woods in perfumery. Sandalwood gives off a sweet and warm scent. It is a woody note, therefore quite intense and strong, but manages to keep a velvety, sensual dimension.

Like all woody notes, sandalwood is generally present as the base note of a composition. It goes very well with a floral heart with lily of the valley, jasmine or rose. In the background, we can find notes of vanilla or musky notes. One can quite accentuate the woody dimension of sandalwood with other tree notes such as vetiver or cedar.

Mainly used in men’s perfumery. It has been extended in recent years to unisex compositions and even feminine fragrances.

I would like to recommend you to buy Serge Lutens Eau de Parfum. It is one of the best sandalwood cologne with the best fragrance.

let’s discover the selection of perfumes containing main notes of sandalwood:

It is a minimalist but subtly executed composition. Santal Majuscule is based on three notes: cocoa rose and sandalwood. Three notes only but three magnificent notes.

Sandalwood is authentic. He plays his role perfectly in the composition. It is creamy, warm, and woody. The cocoa brings a gourmet touch but not too sweet while the prose is flowery and powdery.

It will go perfectly with a chic outfit, on a pretty well-cut shirt for example.

Sacred Wood is probably the scent that features the creamiest, milky sandalwood. To support this, like a heart note, milk is present to bring an animal, milky dimension. The whole is creamy and soft.

Besides that, we find notes of incense which makes the perfume smokier.

Regarding the style, Sacred Wood is not necessarily sexy, I would rather describe it as a mysterious, almost sensual fragrance.
