Sandalwood Fragrance Oil
Choose a Variant

The earliest records of sandalwood in Ayurvedic texts are estimated to date back as far as 500 BCE, making sandalwood oil one of the most ancient fragrance ingredients still used today. Complex and sophisticated, our Sandalwood fragrance oil has an earthy coriander top note that folds into a heart of amyris before blending with a base of dark musk, amber, and woody undertones. This warm, smooth scent perfectly balances blends with floral fragrances but also stands out on its own in traditional or nature-inspired collections.

Note: This product is available in a non-standard 15 oz size due to a higher concentration of natural oils that make it less dense. This size is equivalent to the standard 16oz bottles available for most of our other fragrance oils.

Blends well with: Saffron Cedarwood, Black Coral and Moss, Santal and Coconut, Black Violet and Saffron, Paloma

Alternative branding ideas: Clarity, Strength

Suggested Colors: Brown, Ivory, Blue

We did not experience acceleration or separation. The soap had a very light yellow discoloration and the scent was mild. We did observe a partial gel with minimal insulation. Overall the batter was easy to work with, allowing for a wide variety of designs techniques when using this fragrance.

Santal Blush!

Wow this fragrance oil smells just like Tom Ford's Santal Blush. When this comes back in stock I will definitely be buying a big bottle to make candles and soap with.

To me, this is a true Sandalwood scent. It's wonderful alone, but I choose to blend. It smells like a luxury item!

Not impressed

Sandalwood just doesn't have that 'real masculine' fragrance that my customers fell in love with and I have lost sales without it. Antique Sandalwood was wonderful and I hope you will bring it back soon! Thanks for all your hard work on the amazing scents you create!

Great in MP soap

Used this in my glycerine MP soap and it smells delicious. Smelled a little weak in the bottle, but could really smell the sandalwood while in the shower.

It smells like pickles to me.

Great Scent

I love this scent, very nice! And, that's a good thing, since I spilled 3/4 of it just after opening. Unfortunately, it doesn't have the drip cap, so it went all over.

It would be nice to have the drippers on these bottles...any chance of that happening?

Wish It Had More Hot Throw

I mixed this with Lavender & Sage and used Soy 464, after two weeks of curing the Lavender & Sage smell great, wonderful hot throw, yet the sandalwood is almost undetectable. I might try again and mix it at a higher ratio next time, as I really want it to work, because the scent out of the bottle smells so good!

Please bring back Antique Sandalwood. It is such a unique fragrance that has both great hot and cold throw!
