Sacred Wood was supposedly conceived as a sandalwood base rather than a fully worked out perfume which fact would plausibly account for its rather underwhelming and linear character.
Calice Becker here chose to accent the lactonic facets of sandalwood, yeilding a creamy, musky, lightly balsamic beige-woods blend. Aside from some subtle spicy and hesperidic accents, the main counterpoint is a nose-wrinkling dill/pickle note stemming perhaps from the elemi (absolute ?).
