SOTD: Art of Shaving Sandalwood

Today, I'm grumpy, cranky, and stressed, so I'm wearing one of my primary comfort scents, Art of Shaving Sandalwood.

There's something odd about this fragrance's comfort scent credentials, though. When I'm in a reasonable mood, I don't find this scent particularly relaxing. It's only when I'm stressed, head-exploding stressed, that it does that job. Then, it makes me think of polished wood and pleasantly rumpled white linen shirts ideal for napping.

So today it's perfect, though I don't actually get the nap. However, I'll also be consuming a vat of milk, to finish the relaxation job.

Review Roundup: Is here.

  1. Mr Bonkers consumes a lot of milk in the evenings - usually with a chocolate digestive or two or half a packet. He only drinks skim milk, mind, as a concession to his cardiovascular health. : - )

    I love sandalwood too - I have Taylors of London sandalwood shampoo and soap, though the ne plus ultra of sandalwood soaps is Roget & Gallet.

  2. Miiiiilk. When I was a kid they had one-half-percent-fat milk, which had just enough fat to avoid the "grey water" effect of skim milk. I wish it still exited - I can never handle skim. (When I'm being good, I drink one percent.)

    Ooh. I think I saw Roget & Gallet somewhere just recently. Now I must remember where. I have two different bars of sandalwood soap that I'm finding unsatisfactory; I'd like to try the best.
