Rating: I have to agree with most other reviews....not a fan of this one. Not at all what I expected .... thought it would be more exotic but it reminds me of a cheap cologne. I have combined it with other fragrances to make it more palatable.

Rating: Very disappointed, barely has a scent. I've had four people smell it and none were very impressed. Tripled the amount of F/O in a batch of bath bombs and they have no scent. Will not buy again!

Rating: I really like this fragrance oil. I wish it was a little bit stronger, so I should have gotten the Sandalwood Extra. My mistake! :) It works great in a perfume and mostly on its own. It does easily become overpowered. BUT! It is still a great buy.
By:Zachary, Chalk River, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 05-Jul-2014
Rating: I have come across a fragrance oil from NDA that I don't like. Very disappointed in this one. Used .75oz per pound, which by normal FO standards should be okay, but the scent has faded. Cannot smell it at all in my CP soap. I have a beautiful black and tan soap with a pink heart impeded that I was going to call "Love my Sandlewood" but can't sell it as Sandlewood when it doesn't smell like it. Won't buy this one again....
Rating: The best Sandalwood replica I've found in my travels thus far. It reads well, but as with any FO, it's lasting power is going to be less effective. Pretty good though!

Rating: If your anything like the rest of us who cant afford REAL sandlewood this is defiantly the next best thing!

Rating: I can only say WOW. I can't afford the real sandalwood, and this one is very true to the real one .Thanks NDA !

Rating: Because I cannot afford real sandalwood, I thought I'd give this one a try. It smelled so synthetic to me that I immediately gave it to a friend. Awful.

Rating: I found this Fragrance Oil to be very mild and gentle, scent wise. I had to use quite a bit of fragrance oil, and I still wasn't satisfied. It is definitely lacking that punch! Sandalwood is a very nice scent, I just wish this fragrance oil was stronger.

Rating: Lacking in the strong department for fragrance. Had to use way too much to get any amount of scent from it.

Rating: I like this FO but it does lack a little punch, I have to use a bit more than normal.
By:Mark, Sydney, Nova Scotia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 05-Dec-2008
Rating: Nice smell, but had to use 3-4 times as much as usual, and it faded very quick. disappointing
By:Lucie, Calgary, Alberta Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2008
Rating: Lovely subtle fragrance, true to the sandalwood scent. I prefer to use it alone as it can be lost in other overpowering scents.
By:Vanice, Cambridge, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 19-Dec-2006
Rating: A very nice substitute for the real thing. Blends beautifully with other scents, especially vanilla...yummy!
By:Beth, North Bay, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 22-Nov-2005
Rating: Not a powerfull scent, I need to put the double amount of FO in my regular CP soap.
By:Caroline, Bearn, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 30-Jul-2006
Rating: This fragrance blended well with the Rose Garden FO and everyone seems to love it! I havn't tried it on it's own in soap yet but it smells like sandalwood EO so should be good!
By:Alexandra, Nanaimo, British Columbia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 03-Mar-2007
Rating: Very nice sandalwood.. Usually I get a headache from sandalwood but not this one.. This one has a nice woody scent and combined with frankincense results in a nice men's line scent.
By:Lisanne, St. Catharines, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Mar-2007
Rating: The fragrance was lovely but didn't last long in cold process soap, in fact is was scarcely apparent after only a few weeks. I'll try using more next time. I used 15 ml per poind of soap but think 25 would be better. I'll keep you informed!
Rating: I didn't find any fading in CP with this scent at all. I actually love this scent and blended with amber FO it's a best seller. The sexy tones of Sandalwood compliment the sensual tones of Amber and make a spectacular scent! A great economical way to achieve the same scent at a cheaper price than EOs.
By:Annie, Hamilton, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 14-Nov-2005
Rating: Smelling this and my authentic Vanatu sandalwood, I was surprised at how similar they were. Usually sandalwood FOs can be a little perfumy, or too cedar-y, but this was warm, soft and sweet.
Rating: A very nice sandalwood. Blends wonderfully with other FO's and EO's. A very warm, sexy and exotic fragrance.
It fades a bit in CP soap so you need to use a bit more. In lotions, scrubs & boby butters it's totally divine.
