Sandalwood is often used as a base note in both men’s and women’s fragrances.
The aroma of sandalwood is sweet and woody, giving depth to floral or citrus fragrances. The aroma of sandalwood is relaxing, reduces stress and promotes sleep. It is commonly used in Chinese medicine and Indian healing. Its non-toxic properties make it suitable for cosmetics use and skin care.
What separates sandalwood from other wood fragrances is its bright freshness.
The richness of sandalwood blends well with notes of lavender, geranium, patchouli, jasmine, bergamot, pepper, myrrh, fennel and just about everything! The rich sweetness of sandalwood lingers, making it a perfect ingredient in fragrance bases.

A men’s fragrance that has a warm, sandalwood undertone is L'Eau D'Issey Pour Homme. The distinctive water fragrance is smooth and masculine – a modern classic.
Sandalwood most prominently features as a base note. But that doesn’t mean that it should be overlooked. Sandalwood’s ability to make the heart notes linger on the skin is essential to the fragrance overall.
