Fresh's Cannabis Santal--perfume review

I have been on the hunt for a more mature fragrance and for me that was staying away from fruity tropical victoria secret-esque sprays to the sweet sugary cotton candy feel of Pink Sugar (even though most scents, when sprayed on my body, become warmer and more sensual). After reading several reviews and going to Sephora myself to smell and test out, more than a few times, I finanlly caved and bought the Fresh Cannabis Santal eau de parfum.

On the Sephora website, the description states-"this classic scent for men is a sensual, masculine blend of rich fruits like kumquat and dark plum mingled with pachouli, magnolia, chocolate, vetiver, and vanilla musk. It's a memorable scent that leaves a lasting impression".
Notes: Wild Strawberry, Kumquat, Dark Plum, Patchouli, Magnolia, Rose, Chocolate, Vetiver, and Vanilla Musk.
Style: Memorable, Masculine, Sensual
I don't find this too masculine at all, and I can see it working for both men and women. There is a slight cologne hint to it, but it is very subtle and overall I find it to be more feminine. I do find it very warm and sensual, which is exactly the type of "mature" scent I was looking for.
On the initial spray and from the bottle, I can smell the fruitier note. As it settles on my skin, the scent becomes deeper, drawing out the Dark Plum, chocolate, vanilla and musk. I don't sense too much for the floral, but can catch hints of it at the end of a sniff.

The perfume doesn't last too long on my skin, and if I want to keep the strength of it, I have to reapply after 3 or 4 hours. However, if I want a slightly lingering scent, it will last on me for almost 6 hours.

I opted for the smaller 30ml bottle which I am happy about since a bottle like this will last me forever.

If you're looking for a unique, muskier, more sensual scent, I highly suggest going to your local Sephora and testing this out.

Has anyone tried the other FRESH scents? There are a few more that I want to get and just may have to!



  1. It sounds like it smells lovely, I might have to test it out.

    1. It may not be for everyone, but I personally love it.
      If you can find it and just smell it, you may like it too!

  2. To me it smells similar to Tom ford black orchid. Similar notes
