I'm a vanilla and sandalwood type of gal...Recommendations please?

I'm looking for my signature scent and would love the top note to be sandalwood. I'm not a floral person (e.g. gardenia, etc.).

 

Thanks in advance,

tms

Thanks for the recommendations. For some reason, I am unable to reply to you each person directly, but I wanted to let you all know that I truly appreciate the suggestions and will be checking out these fragrances today!

For vanilla-sandalwood combination, I really like Dior Addict...it is sexy...can be worn daytime but also perfect for night outs and dates :-)

here's the notes from sephora description:

Silk Tree Flower, Mandarin Leaf, Orange Blossom, Queen of the Night Flower, Bulgarian Rose, Bourbon Vanilla Absolute, Mysore Sandalwood, Tonka Bean

Another one of my vanilla-sandalwood fave is Bruno Acampora Musc...this is a musk so you may or may not like it...it is not girly but extremely sexy...(yeah I mean between the sheets sexy wink wink). They have it at luckyscent and you can buy samples to try

I have recently gotten into perfume oils. You might want to look into C.O. Bigelow's perfume oils, the vanilla, patchouli, and amber ones are amazing! I am getting the Muse next, since it became available online again!

Hmm, I love sandalwood, tho most lady's fragrances are either floral or fruity. There's Donna Karan Cashmere and DKNY PureDKNY, both of which contains sandalwood/vanilla and are not super floral/fruity.

One other recommendation is John Varvatos Artisan. It is a cologne and doesn't have the 2 notes you stated, but it's woody and mild (most cologne turn sharp/peppery on me) and clean.

Hi Tms4.

 

I couldn't find a fragrance with a top note of sandalwood;/  However, have you ever tried the Hanae Mori Butterfly Eau de Parfum? It's a classic/pretty fragrance that has notes of almond and sandalwood.
