As compared to NEAT Sandalwood, this Blend of Sandalwood has an extremely mild scent. Definitely note this before purchasing! Personally, I prefer this diluted version as it works well blended with other oils, and if I add it to my skin-care routine it's not overwhelming on my face since its smell seems a bit sweeter and less woodsy when diluted. It's also a very affordable way to get Sandalwood without paying premium for NEAT! I love blending this with RMO's Blend of Neroli and Lavender Greece!
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.
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.
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.
Since I received my first bottle of Sandalwood, I have used it several times alone and have blended it with other oils in diffusers and topical. I love how mild and refreshing the scent is and how it adds a pleasant scent with several other oils. I will definitely will be keeping this on hand.
This was my first purchase from RMO. The blend came out of the bottle easy and had a great scent. I applied the Blend of Sandalwood on my skin with a little bit of Patchouli - got some positive feedback from a lady shopping.
Very pleasant scent! It was much lighter than I expected however, and when diffusing it on it's own it was not very strong/easy to detect. I mix it with tea tree oil in the diffuser and it's very nice.
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.
"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."
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.
Thanks for the review! We're sorry to hear that the scent didn't sit well with you. We hope you'll be able to enjoy some of our other oils in the future. Feel free to reach out if you ever have any questions on aroma or would like some suggestions. Thanks!-RMO Team

Diluted - not a "blend"
I was very surprised to see that this is diluted with fractionated coconut oil. The competition uses the word "blend" to describe more than one oil combined in one bottle. This is NOT a "blend"

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.
