Key Notes of De Los Santos

What Does De Los Santos Smell Like

De Los Santos by Byredo opens with a distinct, herbal aroma from the clary sage, which is immediately followed by the mild sweetness of mirabelle plums. As the scent evolves, the distinct green and resinous notes of the cistus plant emerge, adding an earthy yet slightly sweet dimension to the fragrance. The underpinning of orris root deepens the scent with its powdery, floral undertones. The base of this perfume is robust and captivating, with the warm and musky scent of Ambroxan blending smoothly with the slightly minty and woodsy aroma of Palo Santo. Subtle notes of musk linger in the background, adding an animalistic warmth to the overall fragrance. The end result is a dynamic, unisex perfume that seamlessly transitions from the herbal and fruity top notes to the spicy, woody, and earthy core, finally settling into a resinous, musky base. This fragrance creates a sensation of walking through an untamed forest just after it has rained, with an added layer of sweet, ripe fruitiness from the mirabelle plums and a smooth, warm undertone of musk.

Review of De Los Santos

De Los Santos by Byredo, launched in 2022, is a unisex fragrance, though it reveals a slightly stronger appeal amongst men. The scent is characterized by a dominant woody profile, with a hint of spiciness. It also unwraps layers of green, earthy, resinous, and fruity notes, offering a complex yet harmonious scent profile. A hint of smokiness and freshness can be detected in the mix, adding to its character.

The fragrance excels in the fall season, though it's not out of place in spring and summer. Its versatility makes it a suitable choice for various occasions, from leisure time to daily office wear, though it might not be the first pick for a night out or sports.

The scent has a decent lasting power and a moderate-to-soft sillage, which means it won't overwhelm the senses of those around you, but will remain noticeable. However, the scent's personality may demand a bit more longevity and projection for a fully satisfying experience.

Value-wise, De Los Santos might not be a steal, but for the quality and complexity it offers, it’s still a worthy consideration for those who appreciate multi-faceted scents. Its woody and spicy core, complemented by green and earthy undertones, will appeal especially to those who prefer aromas that are rooted in nature, and yet offer a touch of sophistication and modernity.

In conclusion, De Los Santos is a solid choice for men seeking a versatile, earthy, and slightly spicy fragrance with a good balance of complexity and subtlety. However, it might leave some desiring a stronger sillage and longevity.
