Find out how much of this scent to use
Indian Sandalwood: This is our secret blend of Sandalwood that has a lighter and more delicate scent than our regular sandalwood fragrances to reflect an incense-type of Sandalwood that some soapers are looking for. Works great in cold process and doesn’t discolor your soap. If you are looking for a more “woodsy” and realistic Sandalwood, Sensuous Sandalwood is for you.

I agree with some that it smells like old lady. But I have to say that it is more complex than that. I got this fragrance in the last soap swap and wasn't initially liking it. But I kept going back and smelling it and I started to smell the levels of sandalwood and perfumed incense and I just really liked it. I was bummed when I had used it all up, but I've bought some for myself and have made my own now.
This was the recommended Sandalwood to mix with Vanilla. I mixed it 50/50 and in the bottle it smelled wonderful. I can't smell it in my batch of cp soap whatsoever and neither can my child. I've now wasted my money, my time, and have to remake the soap. I don't know why there is no scent in the finished soap. I've since remade the batch using the full amount in this sandalwood plus some vanilla. Still can't smell it in the finished cp soap.
This smells NOTHING like sandalwood! It does however smell like an elderly woman's perfume. If you want sandalwood notes, then do NOT buy this (there are none) there is only a strong floral up front with a small amount of spice at the end. I would recommend getting their "Sensous Sandalwood" (that is a true 5 star fragrance) that definitely smells of sandalwood!!!
This is a soft, earthy, gentle scent. It worked beautifully in my CP soap and it made me feel as if I was surrounded by a forest after a good rain as the trees gave off their fragnces for me to enjoy. It's great for a unisex soap and I will be buying this one in bulk!!!
