Sandalwood par excellence: Tam Dao eau de parfum is a spicy, sensual fragrance of a decidedly greater dimensionality than its eau de toilette incarnation. A shimmering collective of peppery, citrus notes define the top of this bewitching aphrodisiac.
Sweet lime wets the palate while coriander cleanses and ginger scintillates. This rousing opening appears like a hazy scrim draped across the top of this fragrance, a lime-shaped sun filtering through an early morning mist of spice.
The sparkling, molecular detail of this moment, eventually gives way to a creamier, comforting texture--the dank, dense heat of the jungle. Sandalwood is the indisputable star of this composition, but accompanying woods and resins infinitely highlight and amplify its multi-dimensional allure.
Initially fresh and lactic, sandalwood grows dense and dark in the close-grained company of fragrant rosewood. Cypress is pliant and aromatic, contrasting sweetly with rosewood’s sturdy intensity. Sandalwood aims for cypress’ airborne levity but tethered to terranean darkness of rosewood, it lands somewhere in between, materializing within the crystalline structure of saline ambergris.
This is a sandalwood of mythic proportion, which reveals its charms slowly, that radiates a sense of containment and untold wonder. Memories of the East, specifically of the precious uses of sandalwood in Asia inform this rare fragrance. Tam Dao is eternally transporting.
