She can't tell me that all of the love songs have been written, 'cause she's never been in love with you before.

Housekeeping side note: so I'm folding and putting away a ton of laundry that David washed over break. The man has 3-4x as many cloths as I do and he did all his laundry over break. I mean all of it. Shirts I don't think I've seen in a couple of years are clean. And David, who does not wear scent, per se, has always worn sandalwood oil. Specifically The Body Shop Woody Sandalwood perfume oil that, apparently, The Body Shop is no longer making. (He's going to freak when he finds this out, btw. Perhaps I should grab him some off EBay while I can?) He wears it straight, and also puts it in his body soap for showering.

Apparently, the upshot of this is that all his clothes, even the ones that have been unworn for literally YEARS, and have been washed really thoroughly, they all still smell like sandalwood. So right now, I have his shirts all around me, which means it smells like him everywhere. I love that smell. I don't think I could ever imagine this scent as anything but David. And I don't know many good sandalwood scents, so if you know of any, tell me. I'm sure I'll love it. After all, it will smell, to me, like comfort and safety and affection

"Your skin smells lovely like sandalwood.
Your hair falls soft like animals.
I'm tryin' to keep cool, but everyone likes you."
- "Sandalwood," Lisa Loeb (you can listen to the song here)

On recommending sandalwood scents: I like Art of Shaving Sandalwood, though people often claim that it smells of eucalyptus, not sandalwood. It might be worth trying.

All of my other sandalwoods are full of coconut milk or cumin or flowers, and therefore no doubt not what you have in mind.
