Sandalwood oil has a characteristic sweet, woody odour, a very grounding, but not overpowering, earthy aroma which is widely employed in the fragrance industry, but more particularly in the higher-priced perfumes. It has excellent blending properties and the presence of a large proportion of high-boiling constituents in the oil (about 90 percent santalols) also makes it valuable as a fixative for other fragrances. It’s an oil with a very high viscosity.
There are more than 15 different types of sandalwood in the world and oils will have a slightly different scent depending on the variety they’re produced from, even though it needs a trained nose to really smell these subtleties.
