"The vision of Sandalwood combining cinnamon bark, Siamese benzoin, iris and musk. Wooded silk. Silken wood"
Serge Lutens Santal Blanc begins with warm spices. The spices are creamy and mild blending away into woody notes. It is not just sandalwood, but cedarwood and the like give the fragrance the silky feeling. It is white and velvetty.

You can try it at Mecca Cosmetica. I love that place to sniff all the good stuff! It costs $175 for 50 ml and $95-$115 for 50 mls at StrawberryNet. My sample was bought from eBay.
There is a very interesting description of the inspiration behind this fragrance on Serge Lutens Facebook page. They have notes for most of the fragrances. Good read.
