Similar to the Ceylon and Indian varieties of sandalwood, Sandalwood Oil Indonesian is steam-distilled from the wood of the Santalum album tree and has been used in perfumery for over 1000 years. The oil is pale and vicious, with a remarkably soft, sweet, and woody odor. Indonesian sandalwood oil also retains balsamic and animal-like undertones, adding further complexity to this luxurious material. In fragrance, sandalwood has been used for almost everything, from floral perfumery to masculine colognes. Indonesian sandalwood’s versatility, paired with its aromatic complexity, has made it a long-term staple of the fragrance industry.
