My interest in fragrances as of recently started to develop after my hunt for Le Labo's long lasting and attention grabbing Santal 33.  My obsession began after I complimented a few people on their scent over a course of two weeks or so and to my surprise, they were all wearing the same fragrance, Santal 33. I have toyed with a range of fragrances in the past and I have always had a strong idea of how I wanted to smell. Finally, I had found it and the revelation had me dashing to the nearest Le Labo perfumery in New York to join in on the movement. Little did I know this was a scent everyone seemed to want to know about. No surprise there.

One word to describe the Santal 33 scent - Fresh. 

That's it. It smells really fresh and attractively youthful making it a dependency I am content with overexposing. Featuring notes of violet accord, iris, leather and sandalwood to present such a woody and plush scent, it is safe to say I consider Santal 33 a signature fragrance. It is unlike any fragrance I have ever owned.
