My palette has broadened over the years from simply staying active in the hobby. I still equate Villoresi as being the Frank Zappa of perfumery. No, I don't mean buffoonery, but rather an "in your face" and a take-it-or-leave-it approach. His creations always seem to be rugged, but that's one mans opinion.
Sandalo has a "not quite finished" air about it. Lorenzo has chosen not to cover the flaws in sandalwood and has it stand completely naked before the world.
I have another obscure sandalwood that is very similar to me once the opening is finished. It's called "Sandalo" as well and was released by ERBE Profumi. I have no info as to year or accords and I admit to researching it unsuccessfully.
It's all good however. Villoresi Sandalo is one of the benchmark sandalwoods and years later I can say rightly so. Big thumbs up for Lorenzo's macho woody.
