    Default Mount Romance Sandalwood Body Splash

    Anyone own this one or familiar with it? It's not available in the US (Australia). It seems like it might be a very linear simple sandalwood - but I happen to like those. I just wonder how the quality is. There seems to be a couple of bottle designs...

    I havenít tried it. The bottle change is probably due to them rebranding where they stopped using Mt. Romance (I think they started just calling themselves the Sandalwood Shop). The product description makes it sound like straight Australian sandalwood rather than santalum album.
    Never tried it. The only thing Iíve ever bought from them was some santalum album essential oil.

    Ive been tempted to try this myself. Not keen to pay $10 for domestic shipping which makes the product 25% more expensive. I might wait for a sale or coupon.
    1. No, never blind buy (I do, but do as I say, not as I do. I'm taking no responsibility for your fragrance gambling).
    2. Get them both. You're a Basenoter and you know you're going to end up purchasing them both eventually.
    3. Yes, it has been reformulated.
    4. Looking for a signature scent? You've come to the wrong place.

    Good point on the straight-Aussie vs santalum album. Didn't even think of that.

    Same, for me, on the high shipping rates. It's not like I'm low on sandalwood-prominent scents in my Wardrobe lol.

    Interesting .... according to their website the fragrance Santal Spirit was created by Bertrand Duchaufour.

    The second bottle (especially the cap) looks a lot like a Ormonde Jayne bottle.

    What did you think of it? If you're familiar with Dabur s. album oil how does it compare/contrast?

    Ever since this 2013 BN feature on santalum album grown in northern OZ, I've been interested in tracking developments and have received sporadic emails from the original grower TFS Corp., which changed to Quintis in 2017 I believe, and the retail efforts through Mt. Romance and more recently through The Sandalwood Shop.

    Santal Spirit --> S. album
    Body Splash --> S. spicatum
    Never smelled, nor the oil, which at $90/5ml is still surprisingly expensive, to me at least.
