    mr. reasonable
    Great series of insightful articles - thanks so much for detailed blow by blow account of the harvest and I'm absolutely delighted to see Mr. Dubrana as one of your assessors - if it's okay for him it's okay for me (I enjoy his Santalum Album EdT and we shared happy memories of how easy it was to get hold of great Mysore Oils back in the 70's - if only we knew then!). It will be interesting to see who makes good use of the new stuff.

    Lila Das Gupta - I love your beautiful sounding name. Based on his recent comment Gandhajala sounds humble and unassuming which are very pleasant qualities in any human. Not so sure about self-deprecation though! Thank you for reading and commenting Lila, I know you to be a busy person. Waft on...

    Yes Dries van Noten has sandalwood from from a sustainable source - but I did not know that the source was Santalum album from Oz. Thank you for adding this to the conversation.
    Hi Jordan,
    No, I'm not a fragrant monk - just a lowly academic who works on old Indo-Iranian languages.

    Lila - you tease, you ! See you in 2014 :)

    Thanks for the interesting series, Jordan.
    (The first two instalments happily took me back to my days of reading Pāli).
    Ozzie Santalum album figures in Malle's Dries van Noten collaboration.

    Indeed Ipp. Love the Aussies. They are fair dinkum players in playing field that used to previously attract smugglers, thieves and pirates.

    It has been a delight to write Efemmeral. Spectacular Avatar btw. Stand by for tomorrow - you will have a chance to sample this. Me - bathing in it! The sandalwood dream became a sandalwood bath.
