Rating: Love this scent! It has a wonderful hot throw in my soy candles. At first sniff it is very potent and might be off-putting to some, but that's because it's so strong. If you put one tiny drop in a big glass of water, the smell opens up, so you can get a better idea of the nuances. I use this as a blend with many other NDA EOs and FOs. as well. A little goes a long way.

Rating: I absolutely adore this FO. You never know what to expect when buying fragrance oils. Take the chance with this one!!!! It smells like sandalwood with an underlying note of men’s cologne. Not too strong though. It is soft enough to blend with a carrier oil and use it in a roller bottle as a perfume. I can’t wait to use it in beard oil and soaps. I can only imagine how nice it will blend with Vetiver, patchouli, and Myrrh!! Thank you, NDA.
Rating: Love the smell of this FO in the bottle, but found it didn't give off a strong cold or hot throw in my soy candles. I have found that mixing it with other FO's give the candle a nice musky undertone though.
Rating: Yes, it smells like Sandalwood but there is an underlying note of chemical that distubs me. Overall, not a bad scent. Soaped well in CP.

Rating: I have bought sandalwood essential oil and struggled to find one that did not smell like smoke, but really enjoy this one. I find it has the classic sandalwood smell that is in most insense, which is what I was looking for. Used on its own in a carrier oil it stays for quite a while on the skin but when mixing it can get overpowered by other oils quickly.

Rating: Smells great. Very mild sandalwood smell, smells more like an aftershave with a hint of sandalwood which is perfectly fine because a fragrant oil is not essential oil, this isn't intended to be pure sandalwood.
Rating: My first try with using this in M&P soap turned out well ( according to my husband) but I think that I will need to 'tweek' the amounts. He is a sandalwood fan and I, not so much. I made it for him. It is an earthy-type scent.

Rating: I don't think this smells much like sandalwood at all. It's oddly sweet and powdery, not a very masculine scent to me. I was hoping for something similar to ToBS shave soap. I'm not entirely sure what to do with the whole bottle.

Rating: Sniffing from the bottle, I am not sure about this one. I am not to familiar with sandalwood EO and I still wonder if its remotely the similar but I am hoping it will make a nice mens soap!

Rating: I bought this because the essential oil is pricey glad I did smells nice great in my men's aftershave lotion

Rating: Great scent for my candles! So far it is my best seller! Would recommend it to anyone! It has a musky smell but not all over powering at the same time. It also provides a good base note for almost anything! Thank you!
Rating: I really like this! I'm not a huge sandalwood fan, but my husband is and he doesn't know it's not the real thing :) It adds a lovely background to my cp soaps and I'm looking forward to further experimentation. Actually it smells a lot like my grandpa: so divine for me :)

Rating: I tried this Sandalwood after reading the reviews and must say that it is very disappointing. Out of the bottle there is a weird chemical smell - no sandalwood at all. Did the zip lock Baggie test and the cotton ball still smells sickening after a week. I will not be using this at all.
Rating: I personally do not like the smell of this fragrance. I am sensitive to may perfumes and this one gave me a headache. I'm not sure if it is because it is chemical derived or just the scent. I may need to try the pure essential oil, but I'm not sure I want to spend the $$ for my M&P soaps. (Funny enough, my hubby did like this one!)
Rating: I have enjoyed Sandalwood for over 20 yrs yet it is very costly. When picking up an order at the Mississauga store I sampled this 'fragrant oil' and couldn't tell the difference. Much more than the 'identical oil'. The only sad part is that it's a synthetic compound, I try not to put it on my skin.
Rating: I bought this FO based on the favourable reviews I read here. But when it arrived, I was sooo disappointed. It smells nothing like sandalwood, but has a nasty scent that's like a combination of pachouli and cheap aftershave. I won't run the risk of adding it to my soap,

Rating: This is by far, the nicest, truest smelling sandalwood I have ever had the pleasure of purchasing. Beautiful. One of my favorite scents, so its disturbing when I buy a sandalwood that doesn't even smell like sandalwood....but this one, this one is wonderful. By far the best.
Rating: I ordered over twenty FO's and EO's over the last month and I have to say this one is my favourite. I bought the 100 ml bottle and I wish I had bought the 500 ml bottle. The price is incredible and the smell is so comforting to me. If I could give it more than 5 stars I would. It blew me away.
