The Scoop

Do you remember the old Marlboro ads? A man and his horse in front of the fire on a great plain under tall, blue evening skies - A defining image of the spirit of the American West with all it implied about masculinity and personal freedom. This man, firelight in his face, leaning on the worn leather saddle, alone with the desert wind, an icon so powerful that every man wanted to be him and every woman wanted to have him...

From this memory is born SANTAL 33: the ambition to create an olfactive form inspired by the great American myth still a source of fantasy for the rest of the world...

A perfume that touches the sensual universality of this icon... that would intoxicate a man as much as a woman... that gives this perfume its unisex signature and addictive comfort.

One of the most exquisite scents I've ever had. It lasts all day and it blends so well with your skin that you don't even smell it anymore, but it's there because people are attracted to it like moths to a flame. Great for every season.

Picture the Good Witch of the Desert, this is what her magic smells like. On me this is green leaves, spicy campfire, woodsy fig. Fig can often be overdone with honey or vanilla, but not so here. This one is dry leather, fresh sap, and green branches, and occurs less like something worn, than an element swirling around you - and doesn't project in a choking unfriendly way. That said, my boyfriend says "it smells like Play-Doh, but in a good way." Make of that what you will. I love it.

I own in upwards of 30 different bottles of colognes and scents.. this is one of the most amazing I've ever had.. it smells so warm and woodsy and has a good oil base so it lasts all day long. This scent can be worn year round albeit it's focus is Fall / Winter. My wife loves it and and she wants to snuggle when I wear it.. So i wear it all the time.. LOL..

I received my sample yesterday and it was heaven. I LOVE THIS. My husband went nuts when he smelled it too, he loved it. He couldn't stop saying how good I smelled. I bought a full size bottle that night. I can't wait for it! This is my new signature scent!

I will give Santal 33 5 stars having time with it. It is an enigmatic woody violet ,ris weird but wonderful ,diffusive expansive unisex ,sexless scent ...atmospheric, strong , comforting. It has all the hallmarks of an enduring bestseller and the makings of a signature scent. Le Labo has a hit . It is what the people who wear it ,say it is. I am converted. In some ways I say it's element of mystery equals that of Chanel No 5.

The best part of Santal 33 is the dry down. The sandalwood in this scent can be overbearing so you have to spray lightly. No more than two light sprays or thos will be too strong, once it dries though it is a magnificent scent. Not the best Ive ever smelled but really sexy

I love this!!! This last really long and gets better as the day goes by. Can still smell on my clothes after they've been in the laundry bin.

There is nothing particularly wrong with it, I just felt underwhelmed. It is a mild, creamy sandalwood with a hint of leather that is perhaps more appropriate for work than others. I did get the cucumber-celery-herb sort of note at first, but it was not exciting or interesting. The iris and violet were not there for me. I suppose I have come to expect something really intoxicating from this brand, but this is just nice and bland.

The cucumber right up front turns so warm and sexy. I would love this on a man, but I am happy to wear it; there is a definite floral quality. However, I only get an hour or two of lovely until it dries down to a skin scent...and then it's gone.

I noticed this scent on a friend of mine and immediately bought a sample of it from lucky scent the minute I got home. I LOVE this scent! I am definitely female, but love the clean, but mysterious nature of it! I was an occasional scent wearer until I bought my first full bottle and now I don't miss a day. One spritz on my chest and one on my hair and I am good to go. LOVE IT! Almost through my first full bottle and I will buy a new one the minute I finish it. I do keep it in the dark, though. I want to keep the scent fresh

Alas, this one is not for me. I usually adore sandalwood, so I can't describe what it is about this one that is so wrong. I smell the sandalwood, and then a nauseating celery and herb note that persistently lingers. I was unfortunately wearing cashmere when I tried this, and it took me weeks to properly air it out. Even worse, Santal 33 has the same ingredient/ingredients in Le Labo's Vetiver 46 that promptly give me a painful headache. If you are sensitive, be very wary of even sampling.

This perfume lies on the heavy side but does not require more than 1-2 modest spritzes on the wrist for a well-rounded distribution. The smell lies on the masculine side but is ultimately unisex and can be worn well in the Fall. It's a warm, wood smell that I found surprisingly identical to the way the forest smells after it rains. It captures the smell of damp earth, ferns, creek water, and cedar. I'm a female and wear it on special occasions since it's quite expensive but when I do wear it, I receive compliments on my scent. Being a unique and costly perfume, it's unlikely that you'll run into another person who can recognize it, so it's pleasant to be able to stump someone on the scent. Very nice perfume, both for casual wear or formal. I recommend purchasing a sample, first, as the smell differs accordingly to each person's body chemistry. I've read reviews saying some have found it to reek of cat pee (WHAT?!) or "old lady" but neither of these scents ring true when I wear it. It depends on your personal pheromones, so test it first. And don't overdo it. It can easily become intolerable if you use too much too frequently, as the smell is quite potent after application. Fear not, however, as it wears off to an appropriate level after an hour or so. Overall, I love it!

This one is just right. Yup, sandalwood can be a little bit much and that's what I like about this one. Unisex? Yeah, I can see where some can not think of this not leaning too much in the masculine direction as much one would think. OK, that's fair. I'll wear it anyway.
By   - Oncology Nurse from Mission Viejo on 2/27/2014
I own this fragrance and wear it because I really want to love it. But in the end there is an odd sour/herbal note that just doesn't work for me. I catch whiffs of it on the subway or in the locker room and I like it... But just can't weta it myself. Bummer.

While I love this, I was a lil confused though. The name is santal 33, and its listed as masculine and yet both gender specification and the title note can be disputed. It should be called violet 33 because that's the note that steals the show. It's very unisex, very well rounded and worth a buy. It's very floral and rich longevity and projection are excellent. What more is there to say?

Love this! not as addictive as Rose 31, but it you like that you'll probably like this one too. Soft leather and definately wearble by a woman as well. Light and green like cucumber with a soft saddle grease mixed with rosewood on me. Not amazing lasting power, but good enough.
By   - Psychologystudent from Gothenburg, Sweden on 8/6/2012
l get sawdust & leather in the opening, followed by faint whiffs of cardamom, crisp papyrus & something minty, with a whisper of a floral note. After this, a sweet, creamy sandalwood comes to the fore along with a subtle coconut, & to my nose it smells exactly like Bronze Goddess! This is no bad thing though, & Santal 33 is considerably longer-lasting, definitely unisex & possibly addictive.

Very good unisex scent! I think it's another one that would be great on a man. Love the leathery woodiness, just not on me.

amazing fragrance from start to finish and long lasting as well. I almost wish it wouldve been just a city exclusive :)

So I love Le Labo's Patchouli and I can see the allure in the Oud but lets face it-those are some skanky little numbers. There is no skank here and Im glad Le Labo decided to keep this one that way. Sandalwood can turn body odorish pretty quickly-at least one me....but this one is just lovely. Not heavy but strong (if that makes sense) and it really lasts. It manages to be both soft and delicate yet manly at sexy at the same time. I'm a woman though and I plan on spritzing this all summer long-maybe swap in and out with PG Bois Blond. These are my current summer obsessions!

Absolutely beautiful scent. Very floral with undertones of sandalwood and spices. Not overwhelming at all. I WILL be buying a full bottle of this!
By   - from Va Beach, VA on 5/20/2011
I'm so glad this scent did not become a city exclusive, overdose of Sandalwood, Ambroxan, Violet, Cardamon, Leather and Musc, give way to one of the most unusually Amazing modern, woody Oriental, in the same vein as Oud27, and Patchouli24. This one will get you noticed. apply lightly, you have been warned.
