Geo. F. Trumper is known for quality, and quality shines through in their Sandalwood cologne. If you’re a sandalwood lover, and not a sandalwood purist, then you will love Trumper’s Sandalwood as much as I do. 
The male bits are at the top – citrus, herbs, and spices - bergamot, lemon, lavender, clary sage and spicy notes­­ – bright and lemony-citrus fresh, warmed by the spiced clove mix, with aromatic lavender to keep the chi flowing. It smells traditional and elegantly masculine in the first stage, but then the floral heart notes emerge and start fleshing out the manly bits with sumptuous curves.
Indolic jasmine and spicy carnation mix with sweet red rose, leading the scent into a place of lustrous depth, the hints of sour sweaty geranium adding subtlety and intrigue. At this point in the dry-down, the sandalwood note has yet to make an appearance, but I really haven’t even noticed, because the development of this scent is so unexpectedly delicious.
And then the sandalwood floats by my nose, definitely smooth and velvety and creamy, like the waft of sandalwood dust from the finest sandpaper smoothing the wood to a satin finish. Into the dry-down, the sensuous sandalwood wraps around the curvy floral heart, layered on top of a soft accord of patchouli, amber and vanilla, with hints of soft sueded leather. A perfectly seamless blend of wood, herbs, resins, and ….mmmmmm.
Just for men? I don't think so. Sandalwood is smooth, rich, and downright sensuous. A perfect scent for a confident man, or an adventurous woman, it is sandalwood, but so much more.
