This was from my second time of testing at a department store, as well as my first at-home test with samples I ordered (the next day). I found one of my true perfume loves in these notes.
Please note that my taste changes fast and that this may not reflect my current opinions on these fragrances.
Serge Lutens Santal Blanc
Do not like the opening. Heart is foody but balanced. Very comforting but light enough for cool summer day. A bit like Jeux de Peau. Reminds me of Chanel when it goes into heart/drydown - cool amber resin-like stuff. Grew on me eventually (loved it); someone else said it smelled like fermented eggplant! Ends up smelling - hours later - like a really yummy wooden pencil.
Note: I eventually bought a bottle of this, and love it so much that I sometimes spray my pillow with it to comfort me when I'm down.
