Oil Summary: The African sandalwood has an intensely sweet, woody scent up front, which immediately gives way to a softer, cedary note. Its color is a clear, pale to greenish yellow, and it has a much thinner consistency than its Indian counterpart. Used almost exclusively for perfumery, it is not considered a true sandalwood, although it does possess the same alluring, woody-warm scent. The standard grade refers to its low-level of santalol, the beneficial component that provides the basis for sandalwood’s medicinal benefits.
