    Tom Ford santal blush, By kilian sacred wood, Atelier cologne’s santal carmin.

  2. Suzanne Sharief says:

    I’m not too familiar with many alcohol based Sandalwood fragrances. I own Tam Dao and Santal Royal but nothing compares to pure Sandalwood oil. Which is a very intimate skin scent that will not have amazing projection but it’s almost therapeutic to the soul.

  3. Khawar Ali says:

    I just received mysore sandalwood oil from India through a friend. Its lovely

  4. Hamid Abudhaise says:

    Where did you get the sandal oil from? Theres a lot of sellers online but its hard to tell if the product is genuine.

  5. Frank Hansen says:

    Hamid Abudhaise Ensar Oud

  6. Hamid Abudhaise says:

    Frank Hansen anything more affordable? ?

  7. Suzanne Sharief says:

    Hamid Abudhaise we use certain Indian and Middle Eastern (lower quality ) brands. The best affordable Indian are crown and miso.
    Swiss Arabian have two that are quiet pleasant I’ll find their exact names. They’re both called Sandalia one red one green.
    Al anoud sandalya is good option too.

  8. Hamid Abudhaise says:

    Suzanne Sharief thanks. I dont understand what you mean by “lower quality” here. What is the reference for quality?
    I know that many Middle Eastern houses have a range of medium to high quality oils, including sandalwood, and this reflected in their …

  9. Suzanne Sharief says:

    Hamid Abudhaise Ajmal, Ashgar Ali and many more are Indian based I think. What I meant is that Arabian houses like ASQ and the rest are known for their ouds not Sandalwood specifically.

  10. Suzanne Sharief says:

    I might be wrong though lol

  11. Hamid Abudhaise says:

    Suzanne Sharief they are all based in gulf or have their headquarters their, but the materials (and craftsmanship) are all originally from the Indian subcontinent. Sandalwood and Agarwood trees are not native to the gulf region as we all know, but the …

  12. Suzanne Sharief says:

    Hamid Abudhaise yes. I’m Sudanese and we use Sandalwood as the base for our traditional perfumes. We usually prefer hard core Indian companies and if it’s not available or too expensive we use Sandalwood oil from mainstream gulf companies like those mentioned above.

  13. Hamid Abudhaise says:

    Suzanne Sharief yes exactly. Im interested in the original Oud oils and have been asking around, I even reached for Indian retailers but I cant find the thread anymore ?

  14. Jane Porter says:

    Hamid Abudhaise ASQ has a sandal oil which is lovely. I mix it with Jalaine’s Vanille for a simple, but beautiful, fragrance.

  15. Robert Howard says:

  19. Chris Scott says:

    off the top of my head Dior – Santal Noir & Egoiste CC, Project like crazy and very strong. Santal Noir smells like Ambre Nuit, but with sandalwood and Egoiste CC smells like richer, amped up Egoiste.
