Be prepared to be seduced by Guerlain’s Samsara—the scent, which is overwhelmingly made of sandalwood, is sweet without feeling overdone, creamy and clean. It is paired with jasmine, among many other accords, to keep it from being too cloying.
The vanilla and the ylang-ylang add more character to the syrupy fragrance. It is not loud but can be depended on to stay on your skin throughout the day. It may not be today’s definition of trendy, but Samsara is memorable and sensual through and through.
