Launched in 2006, Cannabis Santal was the debut fragrance from personal care products line fresh. I was taken with this fragrance from the moment I first smelled it on my skin.
It opens with citrusy, bitter bergamot sweetened with sweetened by juicy orange and lush, succulent plum. It’s fresh and light and a contrast to what comes next – a heart of sweet dark, earthy patchouli side by side with an aromatic cannabis accord that is warm, spicy and a little camphorous. It’s not the smell of ‘weed’, the dried stuff that’s smoked, but the plant terpenoids cannabis contains. Terpenoids, Wikipedia says “contribute to the scent of eucalyptus, the flavors of cinnamon, cloves, and ginger, the yellow color in sunflowers, and the red color in tomatoes.” A note of opulent rose gives the heart a floral sumptuousness that rounds out the patchouli and cannabis pairing. At the base, a note of chocolate, bitter and dark, echoes the patchouli, while aromatic vetiver adds a deep, woody, earthiness. The green woodiness give the impression of sandalwood. Vanilla sweetens it and tempers the bitterness so that it doesn’t get harsh, while musk adds a warm sensuousness.
The drydown is floral and woody, warm and sensuous, with a delicious sweetness that defies the ‘masculine’ designation it’s been given.
Don’t let the name fool you – it doesn’t smell ‘weedy’ it smells FAB!
