DUA FRAGRANCES A Vanillac Wood
This delicious creation fuses the creamy sweetness of sandalwood with the decadent aroma of vanilla and tonka bean. The modernity of the fragrance has not waned at all in the past couple of decades. A Vanillac Wood is Dua inspired expression of Serge Lutens Un Bois Vanille. The vanilla is sweeter, the beeswax is richer, and the sandalwood is creamier. Dua's reasonable cost alternative will easily replace the original within your olfactory collection. This refined fragrance is a versatile release for men and women, and it is fit for any occasion.

34 ML (1.1 FL.OZ)
The sweetness is there but I get a lot of woody smokiness to it ( not a die hard lover of agar wood); was expecting a lot of different notes to come through, I'm not getting any almonds, coconut or beeswax but I still will be using it as a layering scent in winter.
I get vanilla, slightly sweet but not sugary or sickly, I definitely get a smidge of licorice, but like real licorice, which is slightly sweet and mild, not black licorice which is strong and bitter and overwhelming.
The scent is cosy, not especially woody, and pretty unisex
It has a similar cosiness to CLEAN Skin and Dua Era of Vanilla, all of which are unisex leaning feminine to my mind.
