Balsamic, creamy, woody note that is diffusive yet tenacious and blends well with most notes. Can have a bright citrusy facet. Highly prized, especially sandalwood form Mysore as it is endangered but has an excellent odour profile therefore it is an expensive raw material. Various synthetic materials are also used to achieve the sandalwood note in perfumes: ebanol, javanol, bacdanol, osyrol etc.
