Golden Santal Fragrance Oil
Choose a Variant

Looking for something sensual? Golden Santal is a complex fragrance oil inspired by Le Labo’s cult favorite fragrance Santal 33. This scent has a strong base of sandalwood and musk that some of us found nostalgic, woody, warm, and alluring, while others found it outright naughty. In fact, we almost called it Naughty Santal.

In finished products, subtle top notes of fennel, ginger, and cardamom accentuate mid notes of rich amber, cedar, clover, and lavender. We’ve found that out of the bottle (OOB), this scent smells slightly sweeter than in the finished product.

Upscale home decor or luxury lines would benefit from the addition of this scent. It performs well in candles, melts, and tarts and also makes tantalizing soaps, lotions, and scrubs.

This fragrance is infused with essential oils, including cedarwood, patchouli, eucalyptus, elemi, carrot seed, cedar, coriander, clove leaf, nutmeg, fennel, caraway, orange sweet, and pine.

Blends well with: Toasted Coconut, Apricot Grove, Fig Tree, Rose and OudAutumn Glow, Bohemian Rose, Forest Chai

Alternative branding ideas: Santal, Naughty Santal, Sandalwood and Cedar, Sandalwood Cashmere

Suggested colors: Light Tan, Light Yellow

We experienced slight acceleration but no separation. The oils and water were slow to come to an emulsion, but we found as soon as a stable emulsion was reached the batter began to thicken slightly. We continued stick blending to a medium trace and the batter stayed fluid. As we started to pour into the mold we found the soap was thickening quickly. After 24 hours, there was no discoloration and the scent was strong. Initially there did not appear to be any sign of gel phase, but after fully curing we were able to determine that all but the corners gelled. After 30 days there was no discoloration. The scent remained quite strong.

A Must Have

I ordered this sample about a month ago and decided today to try it after sitting for 5 days. I use IG6006 and OMG @8% my whole upstairs smelled awesome. I have vaulted ceiling and my kids even said, " mom the upstairs smells good please let it burn longer". Now i guess i will be ordering and adding this to my line.

Luxury indeed

This FO smells like the happiest time I dreamed about. Have the pictures of expensive woody boutique hotel somewhere in Europe in my head when I close my eyes and breathe it in.
I really don’t understand the rating and hope my 5 stars can help others to bette evaluate this scent. It’s fantastic!

Sexy and sensual

Amazing fragrance that is definitely naughty! Wanna and alluring, it was a bit sweet OOB, but hot throw was excellent. I only did 6% in IGI 6006, but my next batch will be a bit stronger. Love it. Definitely has a place in my Sensual line. Thank you so much!

A new favorite

I burned this for the first time last night after a 3 week cure and it is one of my new favorites. The hot throw was amazing and filled my living room easily. Burned very cleanly and evenly in 464. Love the musk, sandalwood,
and cedar notes. I hope the people I gifted this to love it as much as I do. Will definitely order more of this scent.

Oh, its Good Good!!!

Our noses smell differently...... but, this one right here is a studio fav by MANY!! Warm, sensual, and overall comforting aroma. We've added it to our year-round collection.
