For this creation, Guerlain House Perfumer Thierry Wasser drew inspiration from the treasures of the East, and worked one of the rarest and most precious ingredients in the perfume world: sandalwood. Shrouded in mystery, this bewitching note is exalted in a new woody oriental fragrance, a study of subtle contrasts between the dark notes of leather and oud wood, and the luminous floral notes of jasmine and rose.
Amber and leathery accords, as well as oud, accentuate the distinguished pulsating scent of sandalwood. To this characteristically sacred essence, Thierry Wasser then adds another sensual facet by including a Guerlain musk tincture.
Showcased in a bold black shade, the Santal Royal bottle comes in a deeply mysterious hue that contrasts elegantly with its gold details, including cap, ribbon trim and label featuring the House’s heritage arabesque design.
