Heartwood in Men's Fragrance Reviews Posted Saturday at 03:34 PM I really love the smell of Palo Santo. My only complaint with it, in anything, is that it's never as strong as I want it to be. Overall Heartwood is more subtle on my skin, it's something that you'll want to lean in closer to catch a whiff of. My skin as usual, amps the sweeter notes and aspects of this. The Palo Santo, cedar, sandalwood, and vanilla linger and overtake the other notes. I regret not putting in for a full bottle on my last order. Heartwood will also smell amazing on a man.
