Product Description:

Memories of the East, specifically of the precious, sacred scent of sandalwood in the heat of an Asian jungle. Tam Dao is initially hazy, like sun filtering through an early morning mist beneath a dense, verdant canopy.

There is something definitively pixilated about the beginning of this scent, as if we are smelling each note, molecule by minute molecule. Within a few moments, this gauzy texture resolves into a creamier, translucent sensation that reverberates all around us, like the damp, dense heat of the jungle.

Sandalwood is indisputably at the fore of this composition, punctuated by rosewood, cypress, and ambergris, each of which highlight and amplify its multi-dimensional allure. Initially fresh and lactic, sandalwood grows more compact, dense and dark in odour as it imitates the close-grained structure of fragrant rosewood.

Cypress introduces a pliant, almost aromatic levity which contrasts sweetly with rosewood’s sturdy impression. Sandalwood rises to meet cypress’ airborne gaze but tethered to the earthly intensity of rosewood, it floats somewhere in between the two, ultimately captured in the in the crystalline structure of saline ambergris.

his is a sandalwood of mythic proportions, unfolding its manifold charms carefully so that its true power is never entirely revealed. A bewitching aphrodisiac, Tam Dao is a revelation.

(sandalwood, rosewood, cypress, ambergris)

Familiar This had an instant connection for me to parfumerie generalx27s indochine I would say they are nearly interchangeable The tam dao has less gulab jamunwaffle cone notes and more of the incense which I appreciate Unisex by all means This is a very low sillage EDP so great for a working environment I have layered this with bergamot and lime and really enjoyed the results I can see how some reviews find this flat or onenote I agree it could use a little brightness Excellent layering EDP

Gorgeous skin scent This is sensuous creamy warm sandalwood with a touch of dry cedar A touch sweet on first smell but it develops beautifully in the skin Itx27s natural light and intimate Sillage is low with the dry wood notes projecting most making it a good unisex office scent
