A wonderfully balanced, deep, rich, subtle Sandalwood oil : classical noble profile with nice terroir overtones  : it has rich and textured woodiness with different facets, creaminess, caramel sweetness, a hint of suede and a hint of spiciness in great balance, and a luminous aura. 

It is both gourmand and spiritual, just like Ganesh, the beloved Hindu elephant God. The opening is remarkably heartwarming, and the peaceful warmth remains for a long time.

The evolution is interesting after the opening, the oil's profile becomes woody-honey sweet and still offers energy for hours- It has a perfume aura, and the woody notes comes through remarkably close to experiencing the natural wood's fragrance. Later, during dry down, it becomes  deliciously floral and remains present for a long time.


Tamil Nadu Santalum album.

Wood from 40-50 y.o trees. Only lower trunk heartwood and roots system heartwood have been used. Low pressure slow distillation  in December 2021. 100% pure and natural.

The oil shows remarkable maturity at a young age (starting offering it after 16 months of curing). It will age beautifully.
