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

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

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.
