Essential oil Sandalwood spicatum has a woody scent, reminiscent of 'normal' sandalwood, but more green, mossy, earthy and spicy. It therefore produces different nuances than S. album and most sandalwood substitutes. It is also a bit more volatile than most other sandal fragrances. That makes this essential oil an essentially new and different scent. It is (still) little used in perfumery: unjustly, it is a very versatile oil. Think not just as an alternative to sandalwood, but as an alternative to oakmoss, vetiver or coumarin. It does not have the same effect as these substances, but often fits in similar places. A creative perfumer will find this oil a fantastic starting point to base a completely new fragrance on. Use between 0,1% and 20% of this substance in the fragrance composition. It is mainly a heart to base note in perfumes and is stable in most products, including soap.

Store cool, dry and dark.


Sandalwood spicatum essential oil is a pale yellow to orange-yellow liquid at room temperature. The substance has a fairly long shelf life. The oil is made by steam distillation from the wood of Western Australian sandalwood (Santalum Spicatum A. DC.). In addition to this botanical name, you will also come across alternative names, such as Santalum spicata, Fusanus spicatus and Santalum cygnorum. Like any essential oil, this one is also a mixture of various substances. An indication of the composition is the following:
10-25% - cis-Nuciferol, cis-alpha-Santalol
5-10% - cis-alpha-trans-Bergatol, epi-alpha-Bisabolol, trans-trans-Farnesol
2-5% - cis-Lanceol, cis-beta-Santalol
1-2% - epi-beta-Santalol
