Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier Santal Noble Fragrance Overview

Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier Santal Noble Eau de Parfum is a love letter to sandalwood, wealthy and clean, slightly musky and candy. It opens with mixture of spices (predominantly cumin on me) with smoky incense and a way of nuttiness. The patchouli is delicate all through, including a component of earthiness however in any other case combines with the opposite notes and doesn’t stand out to me.

The primary few hours are principally marked by cumin, incense, and sandalwood with the spices main the composition. Because the fragrance will get in direction of its drydown, the sandalwood comes by and the spices recede into the background, abandoning a clean, virtually creamy sandalwood with unimaginable depth.

The notes are listed as:

  • prime notes: espresso, spices, incense
  • coronary heart notes: sandalwood, patchouli, vanilla, vetiver
  • base notes: castoreum, ambergris, oakmoss

Scent Growth

It opened with spiced incense over a mattress of heat, smoky sandalwood and darkish, barely soiled, patchouli. There have been hints of spiced wooden nevertheless it was centered extra on savory spices–to me, cumin, presumably cardamom, and pepper. A roasted, nutty word got here by, which I believe was the espresso, nevertheless it was much less “espresso” and fairly a bit nuttier in aroma. At temporary moments, there was a wisp of saltiness within the air however so fleeting that it felt imagined.

Santal Noble didn’t have lots of shifts between the opening and the drydown, as savory spices–heavy on cumin–continued to dominate with clean sandalwood, a touch of ambergris, and a smoky earthiness was an undercurrent. On the fourth hour, the amber grew to become extra noticeable; spiced, resinous, and slightly woody with sandalwood and touches of vanilla sweetness–the savory spices have been much less intense at this level, too.


For testing, I used 1/3 of a 0.7ml pattern vial dabbed to the underside and topside of my wrist space . I used an unscented moisturizer previous to making use of the scent as I discovered scent didn’t maintain nicely right here in any other case. 

I bought my pattern in January 2022; fragrances are recognized to be reformulated over their lifetime , so be conscious of when a evaluation was made, e.g. a evaluation from 2010 could not replicate what the same-named fragrance smells like in 2022.


It lasted for six hours till it was a skin-scent and about 12 hours earlier than it was more durable to detect on my pores and skin. It had average sillage and projection with the sillage getting nearer to my physique after two hours, and the projection nearer to my wrist after three hours.

Private Ideas

It jogged my memory of a softer, barely muskier model of Profumum Santalum, and I believe I’d want the heightened sense of sandalwood in Santalum general, however this can be a lovely scent and I’m glad I purchased the travel-sized spray. My husband has been utilizing it to scent his sheets earlier than mattress!
