With many new plantations coming of age after over 10 years of maturation, Sandalwood Oil Australian has become increasingly more available for perfumery use around the world. Steam-distilled from the wood of the Santalum spicata tree, the oil is only native to Australia and carries a uniquely soft and woody aroma. This differs from Indian sandalwood, whose aroma tends to be less woody due to the higher levels of sweet santalol components. In perfumery, Australian sandalwood oil is incredibly tenacious, retaining a sweet and balsamic dry down that works well in many linalool-based formulations.
