I adored the original of this along with the Lavander and Corriander fragrance that was part of the Herb Garden collection. This is a stirling effort, I have the oil and although it’s a fabulous smell having had the original it just misses the mark. It does not have that sorrel lemon green smell, it is lovely and citrusy fragrance just not how I remember the original.
After falling in love with Santal 33 that was used to scent a hotel I was staying in, I’m so glad I found this! Ordered both the women’s and men’s versions (1477 and 1478) to compare. Both come extremely close so very happy! The 1477 feels a bit more lively and closer to the original whereas the 1478 smells a little more muted which might be suitable for a more masculine feel. Overall very pleased with both scents and the service. Will definitely be buying more. Knocked off one star for 1478 as I felt the 1477 was closer to the original however I do still think that the 1478 is a really nice masculine scent so don’t be put off.
