    Default Floris Sandalwood EdT 100ml brand new

    One more unobtanium item - the elusive Floris Sandalwood EdT, a brand new 100ml sealed box.
    It was discontinued a decade or more ago and it's one of my favorite sandalwods, so I've grabbed them whenever I've got a chance to stock up (I have three and a half of these).

    What I love about it is the blend (as good as it gets but it's Floris) and that the silage is what a high end cologne should be - it is understated but there. On me it lasts the whole day but not as a permanent presence - instead it seems that it's gone, but then suddenly I would get a new whiff of it - to me it does not get better than this.

    Anyways, since I have so many colognes in my arsenal I ran the numbers and estimated I'll use up about one and a half bottles of this over the rest of my life. However I'm conservative, belt and suspenders type, so I'm keeping two and a half and listing one. As you can see it's brand new sealed in its original shrink wrap.

    $165 includes shipping in US, I do not think this can go internationally due to the alcohol in it.

    This deserves a bump!
    I'd go for it in a heartbeat if it could be shipped to Canada.

    I own the same size, but mine is 2/3 full... and it's NOT FOR SALE. I'm 65, and my bottle will outlast me... or not (IDC)

    Seriously, this is the Holy Grail of sandalwood fragrances. I bought mine in 2007, and have NEVER seen another one up for sale on the Internet since then. Don't screw the pooch -- buy it.

    Well, my Trumper sandalwood is about gone. I'll give it a try!

    That's great.

    I don't know if you're an "oversprayer"; many new formulations, or reformulations, require/encourage a lotta shpritzing; Floris "Sandalwood" does not.

    Long story short: Use less than you'd think; you can always add more.

    Enjoy!

    I hope it's similar to the old Crabtree & I use to wear a long time ago.

    I never tried the C&E Sandalwood EDT, but I've owned a bottle of C&E Sandalwood ASB for many years and find its consistency watery/thin, compared to that of others -- to me, its aroma is "blonder"... more like Diptyque Tam Dao -- but the C&E ASB moisturizes nicely.

    I don't think you'll be disappointed by the Floris Sandalwood; still, if you are, there are remedies
