Sandalwood(Santalum macgregorii)/Papua(wild harvest)



Olfactory Properties of Sandalwood(Santalum macgregorii)/Papua(wild harvest)
The slightly viscous clear oil of Papua/New Guinea Sandalwood presents a uniquely different top/heart-note from other sandalwoods I have encountered. After being placed on the AromaStone the oil gradually begins to transmit its sweet floral top-note to the atmosphere and it very soon joins its floral quality with a deep, rich vanillic/balsamic heart-note. Sitting just beneath this sweet floral-balsamic accord is a dry, precious woods note that deep into the dryout emerges with more distinction in the one to two hour range.

Blends well with a wide variety of natural essences particularly in the floral(ylang, orange blossom, rose, cassie, mimosa), balsamic(benzoin, styrax, peru balsam) spicy(cardamon, allspice, cinnamon) , coniferous(giant fir, scotch pine, cyperus) rooty(vetiver, calmus, cyperus/nagarmotha), precious woods(cedarwood, siamwood, agarwood, cabreva, resinous(frankincense, myrrh, labdanum)

Like other sandalwood oils it would be a valuable harmonizer, blender and fixative in almost any type of composition because ot the soft, subtle nature of its overall olfactory qualities. It is well suited for woody-floral and oriental-floral bases, fougeres, chypres, incense bouquets, contemporary attars,etc
