Sandalwood comes from the trees of the santalaceae family. It is an evergreen wood coming from Asia. Known and used for millennia, sandalwood is part of many funeral rites. In perfumery, wood and roots are distilled to deliver the essence of sandalwood whose smell is hot, smoky, waxy, woody. Its scent is warm, sensual and even milky and velvety. Sandalwood improves the olfactory power of a fragrance. It is found in our fragrance ïōdé at the heart of a woody and amber base note.
