To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
If you're like me, you're VERY cautious about buying fragrances from "unknown" sources, like an individual Seller on Amazon. I decided to take a chance on this one since I knew I could return it to Amazon (even if the Seller tried to resist the return) due to Amazon's policies. I'm writing this review to let you know that not only is this a fantastic scent, but that I received an authentic bottle and that you can trust this Seller (Maple Prime). I won't go into the fragrance itself, since, if you're looking at this one, then you probably already have a good idea about what Sandalwood and Oud smell like. I'll say this is a rich, beautiful and quite complex scent that is very elegant and refined as you'd expect from Guerlain. It has great projection for a minimum of 3 hours, so people around you will certainly be aware of your presence, and it will last well over 10+ hours (mine survived a shower the next day...I could still smell it slightly after drying off!). Again, my main purpose in writing was to let you know that Maple Prime sold me an authentic bottle, so I'd trust this Seller again with any future fragrance purchases I might want to make.
There was a woman and a grocery store that had the most intoxicating fragrance on, she told me it was Guerlain 'Santal Royal' I have never bought fragrances online but I took the plunge. It was amazing! I love it! Intoxicating is the best description! The OUD is so rich, it engulfs your senses. I have been wearing it for a 1 1/2 years from the same bottle! I smelled my wrist to see if it lasted to and it was still there! Subtle and rich! I highly recommend it! When I run out I will buy it again. Another awesome purchase from Amazon, true to it’s description!
A lot of people mention the leathery scent but I personally have not smelled it on me. I did however get that floral scent. Is it worth over $100? No, it is not. With three sprays (two on each side of the neck and one in the back) I was able to achieve about 4 hours
