Rating: I loved this product straight out of the bottle, but once in CP soap it had a weird smell, not pleasant and most certainly not like sandalwood at all. Now that the soap is cured it smells like sandalwood again, but very faint. I guess i should have read the reviews....will not b buying this again. Sorry...
Rating: The scent was very faint out of the bottle so I couldn't even tell you what it smells like, it's a shame because what I could detect does smell nice. I only got a sample bottle, which I am happy I did. Maybe just got a bad batch or something? Not sure, but I was not able to use it in anything.

Rating: I bought this FO to compare to NDA's Sandalwood Extra. It is very similar, but more woodsy. I'd say it is pretty much Sandalwood Extra with a wood note. It is a little more masculine and provides a mellow wood note in blends (I used it with NDA's Violet and liked the results), but I'm sticking with Sandalwood Extra as my Sandalwood FO.

Rating: Does not hold up well in CP soaps, the scent is faint. I also used it in some salt scrubs & had the same problem.

Rating: I bought this FO because I was looking for a nice Sandalwood scent to add to my home made CP soap line. I liked the scent right out of the bottle, but the fragrance all but disappeared in the final product. I can't smell it at all. I'll be able to use it in some of my other products (lotions, scrubs...) but I'll have to keep looking for a Sandalwood scent that will hold up in the CP soaps.
Rating: I really like this OOB. It has a little more depth than the other Sandalwood FO. It still gets lost mixed with other scents though. It is very nice on its own as long as it isn't mixed with a cosmetic base (such as lotion, soap, body wash etc.) As a perfume, body spray or linen/room spray or with a diffuser it is absolutely lovely.

Rating: I'm glad I took a small risk and purchased this lovely FO :) I'm diffusing it along with Sun and Sand FO and the scent is lovely and warm! I'm a big fan of an "expensive brand name candle", but with these beautiful, long lasting FO's, diffusing is not only less expensive, it just makes good sense! And I'm all about that! At this price point you cannot go wrong~!You will enjoy this!

Rating: Great for incense sticks or cones
has a natural aroma to it.
Great scent to add to room sprays.
Also great scent for the car.

Rating: Lovely scent...though I'll admit I purchased the Sandalwood supreme hoping it would have a bit more strength to the scent, since I have to mix it down in things.
Straight out of the bottle it's absolute heaven, but I'm having a hard time with having to use large quantities for it to hold it's scent in other applications.

Rating: I was surprised at how nice this is! A very masculine, mellow scent, very natural smelling.
By:Georgia, Amsterdam, New York Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 10-Jan-2010
Rating: It's smooth and mellow!!! Just perfect for a light scent right out of the bottle. I will buy more when this is gone......
By:Carrie, North Fork, California Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 16-Aug-2009
Rating: Oh this is lovely all by itself but I mixed a few drops of cinnamon leaf EO with this and Suave, Eat your heart out! Tops it all over the place !

Rating: I bought this oil for my grandson, and as yet have not tried it in anything, but I have smelled it and love it. I hope he is happy with it, since this one was his request.
By:Linda, Council Bluffs, Iowa Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 23-Jan-2010
Rating: This one smells nice. It does smell better than other sandalwood I have smelt and has a natural aroma to it ; EARTHY. Which, of course, gives it a realistic scent. Strength wise; it is strong and reminds me of some high end products. I would buy it again for sure.
