Before purchasing, please read all the information below and the general product information.
Not intended for use in food, vape liquids or other internal use.
Intended to be mixed with other fragrances: on its own, the scent can be dull or even unpleasant.
Do not use undiluted on the skin: it is a raw material, not a finished product.


Polysantol (Fir) has a scent reminiscent of sandalwood. The odour is not particularly strong, undiluted use is usual. Typical use is in woody accords, especially of sandalwood. You usually use between 0,1% and 5% of this substance in the fragrance composition. It is as versatile as sandalwood, so it goes well with floral scents, citrus and spicy ambers. It greatly contributes to the diffusion and radiance of the fragrance. In perfumes it is mainly a base note, it is stable in most products, including soap. In candles it mainly contributes to the cold throw, but it is also a good choice when burning the candle.

Keep cool, dry, dark and out of the reach of children.


Polysantol (Fir) is a colourless to slightly yellow liquid at room temperature. The purity is at least 95% and the substance has a fairly long shelf life.
