Sandalwood is now so expensive that chemicals are ubiquitous in replacing it in most fragrances. This formula is a particularly useful one in that it gives you both natural sandalwood and a beautifully balanced combination of the finest sandalwood chemicals.
Mandarin is, to my nose, perhaps the most beautiful and complex of all the citrus notes in perfume. We are fortunate to have such a plentiful supply of the real oil from a variety of places and in a variety of forms (red, yellow, green, etc).
This is an incredibly special formula. It is based off authentic notes from the original fragrance, GCMS data, and my own additions (mainly to add a few modern touches of great beauty).
