This Particular Candle Scent Makes Your Home Smell So Expensive

Have you ever walked into a hotel lobby or spa that smells incredible? Chances are they are scenting the space with sandalwood. Not only is sandalwood a popular fragrance for perfume (we're looking at you, Le Labo Santal 33) but thanks to its grounding scent, it also makes a great scent for the home, and particularly for candles and reed diffusers. So, what does sandalwood smell like?

Honestly, These 9 Subtle Fragrances Make Me Smell So Rich

Don’t get me wrong. I love a heady, strong perfume more than anyone. Perfume is the perfect way to make a lasting impression. But here’s a totally counterintuitive notion: Subtle perfumes make the biggest impressions. I rotate perfumes pretty much every day, and I’ve found that when I wear a subtle, inconspicuous scent, people are always the most intrigued. I think it’s because subtle scents inherently have a bit more mystery to them. They’re not in your face, but they definitely still make a quiet statement. That’s what makes them so appealing.

Below, I’ve rounded up my favourite subtle scents, which are guaranteed to get you at least one “you smell so good” com...

"You Smell So Good" Compliments Are Directly Correlated to This Kind of Perfume

We've already talked about the prevalence of beloved notes like rose and vanilla in what feels like the majority of our favourite perfumes, and cosy sandalwood is another unanimous favourite. It manages to feel warm and woody, but it also possesses a creamy richness, which makes it the perfect base note for a wide range of fragrances—not just the sweet, spicy or musky types you might initially assume. Whether you're already a fiend for sandalwood like us or are new to or unsure of the popular note, we're going to go ahead and say adding a sandalwood perfume to your winter fragrance wardrobe is one of the best moves you can make this season (especially in the "you smell so good" compliment department). Thanks to its surprising versatility, we're of the strong belief that the perfect warm...
