I was a little leery of ordering this after reading some reviews indicating there was little to no scent, but since I have been extremely happy with all of my other RMO purchases—and I really wanted the Sandalwood— I went ahead and ordered it. Honestly I wish I hadn’t. There is no scent to it at all. I am more than disappointed, I feel like a sucker.
Thanks for the review! We’re sorry to hear that you’re unhappy with the Blend of Sandalwood. Here at RMO we strive to offer the highest quality oils at affordable prices. We hope you’ll be able to enjoy one of our other products in the future. Thanks!-RMO Team

I make a blend for moods and big emotions in my kids. This oil is game changer.
Thank you for feedback! We would like to let you know that this blend earned its name as it is "blended" with FCO to assist with the cost.

Subtle relaxing smell
This blend of Sandalwood is an economic option that smells wonderful! I was concerned about reviews that suggested it was too lightly scented, but I was planning to wear this as an oil that I rub onto my skin. When used in that way it smells wonderful.
Love sandalwood, but the blend is not very powerful
I love sandalwood, it is one of my favorite fragrances. I took advantage of a recent sale and bought this blend because the pure sandalwood oil is too expensive for me right now.
I diffused it and it was really amazing! It smells so good!
It was easily a 5-star oil for the smell and uplifting effect (and I think I will buy the pure sandalwood oil), but I found this blend to be a little "underpowered", as I had to use many drops (not easy to get from the bottle because the oil is a little thick) to smell it. I knew that the fragrance could not have been as strong as with pure oils, but I expected a little more.
It’s a blend. Sandalwood is expensive and having some is better than none right now. A lot of the reviews say that there no smell. This is not true unless your nose doesn’t work. The smell isn’t overpowering but it is fantastic. Very calming and uplifting. I love sandalwood. Yes pure is better, but this blend is great and it mixes fantastic. I mainly bought this to wear and to mix in roller blends, so a blend is perfect.
"Reading some of the reviews I have to agree that the scent of Blend of Sandalwood is weak, but lets remember that that scent is not what is important. The importance of the essential oils is their properties and effect on us. This blend when I apply 2 drops on the palm of my hand and rub them together and then pass them over my face, neck and chest, then repeat for rest of body, it gives me an immediately uplift of spirit. The feeling of well being is automatic. If the scent was strong I could not apply all over my body. So please give it try. You will not be disappointed."
This blend have very little scent to it. This was for my wife and she uses blends of sandalwood from other companies and they smell wonderful and lasts a long time. Yours has little scent and does not last. Very disappointed in the product.
i have been very happy with RMO essential oils for the most part. i was, therefore, very surprised to find this blend of sandalwood to be so diluted that there was hardly any scent of sandalwood. i know sandalwood is very expensive; i have purchased it in the past. this is supposed to be a reasonably priced alternative but really it's still pretty expensive considering ... 9:1 FCO to sandalwood? in a TBSP, i expected it to be more than a hint. i don't like to complain - just want people to know. thanks
I use a mixture of this with Blend of Rose and Blend of Neroli on my face every night. My skin soaks it in, feels wonderfully soft without oiliness, and smells so clean. I only use moisturizer when I need to wear sunblock.. I wish there was an essential oil that acted as a sunblock.
I love the smell of Sandalwood. I ordered the blend as an economical alternative to the pure oil. I like the idea that it is blended with coconut oil and "ready to wear", but I find the scent a bit subtle for my preferences.

Is the strength of scent anywhere near as strong as the older version of ‘blend of sandalwoods’? I loved that 5ml neat, and after buying the blend of vanilla and getting zero scent out of that, I’m concerned about ordering this one. I miss the 5ml neat option!

BEST ANSWER:The most comparable to the "blend of Sandalwoods" would be our single Sandalwood essential oil. Which is neat. Our Blend of Sandalwood is diluted to a 10% dilution.
Can I add a few drops of the RMO Sandalwood oil to this Sandalwood Blend for a stronger scent? According to the reviews, the blend needs a higher ratio of pure sandalwood to be able to detect the scent.
The Sandalwood Blend smells nice, but you need to use several drops to be able to smell it. I use it in a diffuser with several other oils, and it gives some depth to the overall fragrance. I would definitely add some of your pure Sandalwood to give it a stronger fragrance.
