Choosing the Best Le Labo Santal 33 Alternative

Santal 33 is the fragrance that lingers everywhere with a whiff of freedom in the outdoors. Its woody, spicy, and leathery notes offer a clean, comforting scent that gives it a dry down and makes it an investment fragrance. 

It also comes in a clear glass bottle with a chrome-colored cap, a simple black and white apothecary-style label, and a clean design reminiscent of a turn-of-the-century men’s grooming staple. 

If you want a similar scent while saving money, look for a note pyramid that closely matches Santal 33. 

The original contains musk, leather, violets, iris, and cardamon notes, so look for scents that feature musky, amber, deep violet, and spicy notes that give it a rich yet green sillage. Santal 33 is also dry, so anything too creamy or floral won’t duplicate the scent.
