17th February 2023: Prior to closing in October 2022 for maternity and paternity leave, I purchased a batch of Mysore Sandalwood E.O of which was over 2.5 years aged. As such the batch I am now offering is at least 3 years aged. Thank you, Adam : )
Adam Michael has this to say “This Sandalwood Mysore essential oil has a profound calming effect and is wonderful for relieving chest infections. Very useful in massage for treating sore throats. Sandalwood has long had a reputation as an aphrodisiac. It is an intimate perfume, in distinction to most other essential oils, largely because of its very slow rate of evaporation, which means that one has to be quite close to smell it at all (except in the case of when its being evaporated in which case it can be quite pervasive).
Steam distillation of the chipped or powdered heartwood and roots. Although sandalwood has often been recommended as an oral treatment it is most safely used in massage treatments, poultices, bath oils and evaporators.
At the time of writing (11/08/15) the ‘H & R Guide to Fragrance Ingredients’ cites sandalwood oil as one of the most expensive raw materials available to the perfumer it must be said that there are many essential oils which are far more costly and much less versatile. With the exception of Oud (which is very expensive indeed) there is no other essence which gives the same voluptuous warmth as sandalwood. The production of the oil is scrupulously controlled by the government of Mysore, the very best oil being ‘agmarked’ or approved by the Ministry of Agriculture. Only the heartwood of mature trees (aprox 30 yrs) is used and current reports from Mysore suggest that the use of sandalwood for carving and furniture making is to be curtailed in order to ensure a sufficiency of trees for future oil extraction.
The oil is present to some degree in all parts of the wood and is responsible for the formation of the heartwood. It is not secreted by the wood. This distinguishes it from other woods such as guaiacum and sanders whose heartwoods are formed through the action of resin which is secreted especially when the bark and outer wood are damaged.”
Joseph Colbourne has this to say “As to be expected of a genuine Mysore Sandalwood, the scent is absolutely gorgeous. A sacred intimacy is met when acquainting oneself with the damp, rich, fresh-cut wood scent. The sweet, creaminess is balanced with the bitter, piquant qualities. I applied a drop in the third-eye area of my forehead and let the scent envelop me with its sedative, grounding effects. In aromatherapy, sandalwood Mysore essential oil proves to be invaluable in everything from throat irritations and laryngitis to depression and anxiety. With its high sesquiterpene content, sandalwood is skin-nourishing, aiding in the healing of scars. This wondrous sandalwood has great fixative value and versatility, elevating and lifting other notes, particularly woody base notes.”

Very good sandalwood, the taste is far away, it makes you feel like you are in a temple, I prefer to use sandalwood to match bergamot, lively before and lasting after

Now, I’ve never had any Sandalwood before so did not know what to expect – other than some sort of heaven in a bottle. I was really surprised by this oil. To my untrained nose I did not detect any wood facets at all – just gorgeous, sweet perfume. That was exactly what I thought when I smelt it “this smells just like a lovely bottle of perfume from a high end producer”. There is a delightfully buttery tone to the sweetness after a while on the skin, rather like baked flapjack fresh from the oven, all syrup and butter. Would I buy more? I already have! .

Creamy and wonderful perfection, transports me to visiting temples in India 20 years ago! Absolutely gorgeous scent that readily stands alone!

Worth investing in. Takes you on a journey and profoundly centring at the same time. This is my second bottle and am keeping to age as an experiment.

Before I really knew much about Sandalwood and the different types, I thought “how different can they all be?” Let me tell you, VERY different.
This is one is King. Mysore sandalwood is the richest, creamiest most heavenly oil you’ll put your nose to. It Is Gorgeous.
A little goes a very long way too, ive overpowered many a blend at the beginning of my perfume making journey.

I’m biased towards Sandalwood (love it) and find myself tempted to use it in everything that I make. It’s subtle, sweet, and creamy nature makes it a great base and fixative ingredient.
I’d describe this Mysore variant as having the characteristic sweetness and creaminess that we expect, yet its a bit softer. It also gives off hints of earthiness – again, very softly. It doesn’t have the strength or spiciness of a Hawaiian Sandalwood, so I can see this as being one of the most versatile Sandalwoods. It is definitely high quality and something I’ll probably be using most frequently.

I’m so happy to hear that this Mysore Sandalwood will be back soon as I’ve been using it in some of my formulas and my customers love it. I have a passion for Sandalwood and this along with some of the vintage I’ve gotten from Hermitage are the best I’ve ever used. In fact so are many of the aroma ingredients I’ve gotten on here. My favorite place to shop for amazing products. Not only do I thank you but my customers thank you as well.

First time ordering this Mysore sandalwood. This batch is so well balanced and beautiful. It’s creamy and a 3D like…like a plush cloud. I’m more familiar with the spicer gourmand Indonesian sandalwood, but this is what I have been dreaming of. I cant wait to start using it.
