This is a really nice aftershave, especially if you are searching for a less sweet, more subtle sandalwood scent. I am usually more into alcohol free/witch hazel based aftershaves, but this one happens to have both of those ingredients so I figured I would give it a try. For the price point, this artisan AS really hits the spot. Feels great going on (despite the initial alcohol burn). The smell will seem strong as soon as it's splashed on, but once the alcohol wears off, it morphs into a nice sandalwood smell that lingers for quite some time. In fact, the sandalwood scent in this aftershave lasts longer than many colognes I have (that are much more expensive too).
Nice job, Stirling. This is probably my favorite Sandalwood AS, and I have tried a lot of them. Truthfully, what I like most about this AS is its simplicity - all you will smell is sandalwood - a very woodsy, masculine sandalwood that will generate many compliments, I guarantee it. And a special thanks to Maggard's - their customer service cannot be beat.
