“Extremely rare, pure Indian Mysore sandalwood oil “Santalum album”, unmixed, undiluted, untreated”

Let’s elaborate;

Extremely rare: it is getting very hard even for the professional traders and the perfume companies to export or use this grade of sandalwood oil. It’s is being heavily regulated and, in some cases, restricted due to the over sourcing of the sandalwood tree and the damage that the uncontrolled and unregulated harvesting caused to many jungles and areas. It is currently on the list of protected trees and it’s categorized as Vulnerable!

Pure Indian: this is pure Indian sandalwood oil extracted through steam distillation, the same way it was made hundreds of years ago, additionally this oil is distilled with the maximum possible potency and concentration.

Mysore sandalwood oil: this is real Mysore sandalwood oil from the state of Karnataka in southern India which was also known as The Kingdom of Mysore hence the name Mysore oil.

Unmixed, undiluted, untreated: we are not going to make any assumptions or accusations, but we strongly doubt that you (or anyone else) will find pure sandalwood oil that is not mixed, diluted, or treated being sold online or anywhere else for this price.

The opening/ first nose: sandal, sandal, sandal, lots of it with hints of cedarwood, smoky wood notes, vanilla, and fruits.

The middle/ second nose: wood, with hints of incense, brown sugar, light tobacco.

The closing/ final nose: honey, sweet tobacco, with hints of cherry and light flowers.


The significance of this oil: known in many places in the world especially Indian, south-east Asia, and the middle-east. This oil is distilled from chips and billets cut directly from the heartwood of Sandalwood tree there are 3 main grades depending on the parts of the wood that the oil is taken from and if it is mixed or diluted, the more you get to the core of the tree and older the tree is the stronger and higher quality the oil will be. This OIL is from the inner core of the best trees in the region many arguably believe the best in the whole world.

This Sandalwood oil is also known as the sandal, Chandan, white sandal, and Maysore oil. It’s is prized to be one of the most loved and celebrated oil among many people who practice different religious activities, it’s it commonly burned as incense in temples, and meditation centers, and holy shrines and it’s the oil of choice to yogis, gurus, and many eastern moguls, VIPs, and politicians.

Extinct – Rarest – Cannot be found anymore. These are the rarest raw materials on the planet, museum quality oils, those oils cannot be found, replicated, or re-generated. There are such very limited amounts that they get sold by the milligram. The people who work and deal with those oils around the world can be counted on one hand. The majority of the time, these oils will be restricted to royalties and billionaires. The lowest age of these oils starts from 50 years old going up to 500 years old. Anyone who holds one of these oils holds an experience that is exclusive to one human being on this planet. Only 0.0001 percent of the population will have the privilege of experiencing the power of this olfactory.

Very limited – Extremely Rare – Extremely hard to find. These are oils that it’s simply a matter of time, and by that we mean few years, before it goes to the previous category (extinct). These are oils that most probably were a symbol of luxury and opulence throughout the ages and very few privileged people in history had the chance to enjoy them. Only 0.001 percent of the population will have the privilege of experiencing the power of this olfactory.

Limited – Rare – Hard to find. This is the lowest of the categories we have but it’s still considered by many as a pinnacle to express class, luxury, and taste in its most aromatic form. These are very limited oils, very hard to make and very few have access to them. Those oils are not extinct, and we really hope they won’t be anytime soon, but they are simply rare because of the raw material they are extracted from, the process and the quality in the making and distillation. Again, these are all 100% natural oils, very concentrated and very powerful, and they will dominate the comparison with any alcohol based perfume or cologne in every single aspect, every single time. By maximum measurement, only 0.01 percent of the population will have the privilege of experiencing the power of this olfactory.
