I had wondered about this. I have sandalwood oil that a friend brought back from India. Although I suppose it could have been imported from some obscure corner of Australia to some obscure corner of India to sell to American and European tourists? But I doubt it. But so anyway it does smell quite wonderful but it has almost no projection. It lingers for days but stays incredibly close to the skin. And so I had been wondering how on earth sandalwood frags manage projection. And if the answer is that it's not sandalwood that we're smelling in Santal Noble or Tam Dao, then I must say long live synthetics, bid farewell to another pure falsehood, and greet another scruffy pleasure with open arms. And as far as the epistemology of smell, even if we don't get to so far as wondering whether if a man farts in the woods does it make a smell?, there's still all the variations in variety, crop, and extraction method to keep us confused about what a rose smells like, let alone rose oil, let alone a soliflore rose perfume. Sheesh. Pass the Old Spice. At least that smells like real Old Spice. Oh, and pass the Good, the True and the Beautiful.
