Best Smelling Sandalwood Colognes for Men

Sandalwood is a very common ingredient in many fragrances, especially men’s colognes. It provides scents with a smooth woody aroma with a bit of sweetness which lends itself well to the world of perfume. Since so many people enjoy this note, some want to find colognes where sandalwood is the main attraction. Well, in this post, I’m going to present the best options for men’s colognes which feature a prominent sandalwood note. Now, some of these options will be more of a straightforward sandalwood fragrance while others will be a main note of sandalwood that is perhaps blended with other notes t make something beautiful and unique. As always, I have linked each option out to where it can be purchased and further info can be found.


Chanel Egoiste– A very fresh and masculine scent which is also an amazing performer. I like Egoiste Platinum myself, however, if you want the sandalwood note in full effect you should check out this gem.


L’instant De Guerlain By Guerlain For Men. Eau De Toilette Spray 4.2 Ounces
This great scent is quite sexy, refined, and unique in many ways. Notes of bergamot, sandalwood, lemon, pepper, and many others weave together a layered aromatic experience that is one of a kind.  Top Guerlain Scents

Taylor of Old Bond Street Sandalwood Cologne, 100 ml

Much more of a pure sandalwood scent than many other of the colognes here. Sort of a sweet/woody kind of fragrance at an affordable price point.


Original Santal By Creed For Men. Millesime Spray 4.0 Oz

An option from Creed which features sandalwood, vanilla, and cinnamon as its main features. I have warmed up to this scent a lot since my original review. I find it so much more pleasant than after my first few days of wear and really began to enjoy its understated smoothness. Creed Santal Review



A very mature and masculine scent perfect for the older gentleman or those who prefer their colognes to have a bit of a spice to it. It is however, a distinct woodsy experience of lavender, sandalwood, and a dry oakmoss note. Best Creed Colognes for Men. and Bois du Portugal Review

Gucci Envy- A spicy and fragrant mix of ginger, sandalwood, and lavender. This Gucci scent has been discontinued but you can still find bottles of it here and there…and it is definitely worth a try.


Diptyque Tam Dao Eau De Parfum

Another more of a pure bred sandalwood scent. This one is definitely a woodsy/forest type of scent with other notes such as cedar and cypress. Has a very dry and soft aroma.
