The Scoop Don't let the “blush” in Tom Ford's Santal Blush perfume fool you into thinking this is a shy or retreating scent. It's more of an exploration of the multi-dimensionality of the buttery-beautiful sandalwood note. Like looking at a cross-section of cut wood with its repeating but differentiated rings, sniffing Tom Ford's Santal Blush provides an olfactory version of similar-but-different reverberating facets of sandalwood. It opens with a creamy, almost coconut-y and even fig-fruit richness. Bold Indian spices of cumin and cinnamon give Santal Blush a temporary hot-and-heavy feral energy. As carrot seeds and fenugreek add a vegetal, waxy depth, chic, sandalwood calls in its reinforcements: cedar and oud, softened by musk. Soft, spicy, creamy, and sexy, Santal Blush is more forward than its name.
