    An elf! Hello Elve, you just missed the draw. The root oil was news to me too. All I can do now is wish you a Happy 2014 and hope you do not miss any other treats this year!

    Man I love the new basenotes --- I hope I win...one thing I learned is that over the past 15 years the price has increased on a compound basis by 16 % per annum.
    Thanks for the opportunity and great article series. I love you guys!
    Oh well I missed the draw too -- congrats to the winners. Gotta pay more attention dammit lol.

    Also, I wonder if any of the Australian Santalum Album trees will be allowed to reach their full maturity before being harvested? Maybe this way they could offer a superior grade of oil in addition to the regular one (assuming an older tree would give a superior oil - maybe not?).
    Hello again Renegade,

    Santalum album or in this case Australian album oil is very stable - eg. its composition does not vary significantly from batch to batch however as a natural product, some variation does occur. The blending allows TFS to match a customers' previous order as closely as possible. The blending also achieves a more consistent product like champagne etc. If an oil was "out of whack' then it would be blended up or down for consistency.
