Santal 33 is the kind of scent that makes you run after someone in the street to ask what it is.
And now, there’s a new version on the block.
It’s strong, but not overpowering. A mix of Australian sandalwood and cedarwood make it a
smoky choice, and cardamon, iris and violet make it addictive. Seriously, if you haven’t smelt it
I dare you to try it in your nearest Mecca and tell me you managed to only sniff it once. The
leathery, spicy and musky notes work together to create this Le Labo cult classic.
But what’s with the solid?
Not only does a compact perfume solid make it travel-friendly, but in the sun perfume (alcohol)
can burn your skin, and since living in Australia I’ve become more aware of this as the sun is
so strong. Having a balm to rub on means you don’t sweat it off in the heat, and you save your
skin from damage. Win, win.
