This Ramadan, give your love ones the fragrance dedicated to the true Middle East heritage.
Guerlain is paying clear homage to a natural raw ingredient – Sandalwood, whose divine volutes have cradled and bathed oriental civilizations since the dawn of time. Historically, sandalwood has been the exclusive privilege of India and South East Asia, but now it holds a different fascination for Middle Eastern countries.
Guerlain Santal Royal is therefore intimately dedicated to them. This new creation perpetuates the desire to nurture and offer something that is becoming extremely rare.
Santal Royal is a fragrance with oriental, woody and spicy notes. However, one scent – no matter how sublime and distinctive – does not make a fragrance; it must be adorned so that sandalwood’s rare and precious heart, which only offers its fragrance after 15 years, unfolds in all its fullness. Neroli, a sunshine flower that radiates with joyful cheer, and cinnamon, exuding warm and vibrant notes that are a blend of wood and spices, appear at the top. They are subsequently accompanied by an essence of roses, the queen of flowers whose precious character has the power to enchant and beauty enhance sandalwood, and a subtle fruity accord.
Other amber, leather and oud accords highlight and accentuate the essence’s elegant vibrations. Yet, beyond sandalwood’s sacred dimension, Thierry Wasser has intilled it with a more sensual facet, adding an innovative hint of must with the Guerlain signature, allowing divine vapours and a modern unisex fragrance to live side by side.
