Tamboti Wood by Susanne Lang
This particular woody is sheer and on the passive side. It still is noticeable, but has a soft voice. Tamboti Wood is very simplistic in its design and consists of Tamboti, cedarwood, sandalwood and vetiver. It smells as streamlined as it looks.
On me, this fragrance has a semi-aquatic vibe with an immediate contribution from cedar. The aroma borders on a musky wood and it doesn't take long for the sandalwoods to make their presence known. The sandal accord has a hint of sweetness to it, but isn't of the creamy variety.
The volume is very low for an Eau de Parfum, but as a skin scent, it seems to last a respectable amount of time. It literally shares some traits with Zara Sandalo ( which I happen to own and like ). There's no comparison in price point however. Tamboti is $50 per ounce while the Zara is something like $1.89 a gallon.
This is a nice fragrance in spite of being able to obtain similar for less. I'm quite sure it would layer well since my Zara and others like it all layer very effectively with my more floral fragrances. I recommend a sample before buying, but still give Tamboti Wood a thumbs up.
