Santal Majuscule (Haute Concentration) Eau De Parfum  by Serge Lutens at The Perfume Shoppe.
Black Collection

At first, Santal Majuscule smells very much like a Middle Eastern rose attar, a traditional distillation of rose and sandalwood, albeit a luminous and refined one. A hint of cinnamon and orange gives it a Turkish delight twist, while the musky sweetness of peach skin softens the woods however there is nothing edible about the perfume, but a subtle note of cocoa gives Santal Majuscule a gourmand  quality and sandalwood a smooth refinement and an addictive quality. This is a much softer sandalwood fragrance than Santal de Mysore, because of its refined gourmand quality coupled with sandalwood. Santal Majuscule meaning a scent somewhat larger than regular Sandalwood.

"As you know, there are a wide variety of sandalwoods. Mysore is one that has been subjected for some time to a hidden trafficking. I had used it in the mid 90s, during the creation of Santal de Mysore. Santal Blanc is another thing. Regarding Santal Majuscule, this is an Australian sandalwood, high quality, but with this release, I 'sensationalized' it so much that in the end, it is impossible to tell if it comes from India, Australia or elsewhere. What interests me is what I can do with it. Moreover, using sandalwood for itself alone would be a little 'Sandalwood of misery'...."               Serge Lutens quote from  interview bestowed to Elena Vosnaki

Notes: sandalwood, cocoa and rose.
