Expensive, yet worth it
Best sandalwood oil I have purchased. Very thick, I take out the built-in dropper and use a regular dropper with this oil. Beautiful scent, great for use when meditating.

Not my fave
It's not my favorite sandalwood. It smells a little weak with a hint of something else. I really loved the old sandalwoods and this isn't the same. I wore the old one as perfume, but this one smells funky. However, I still put it in my blends and seems to function.

It's better priced than the MLM brand and has a great Sandalwood fragrance. It's fantastic quality.

Aromatically pleasing
Decided to try RMO sandalwood because oil was out of stock through MLM company I normally order from, and their Royal Sandalwood was pricey. This is first time I have purchased sandalwood, so can't compare to other brands. The smell is light, earthy and pleasant, perfect for unwinding in the evening. I "warm" the bottle between palms of my hands gently before opening, this seems to allow oil to drop from bottle easier, although still slower than other oils. Will purchase this again from RMO, as well as try other oils.

I was very disappointed with this product. It smelled terrible when it arrived. I have another brand and it is a thousand times better. Customer service was great though when I wanted to return it.

Love it!
Great price, great product. I had ordered an MLM brand on amazon for more $ and it smelled like alcohol. This was the real deal, smells great. I have loved all the oils I've ordered from rocky Mountain.

Nice smell
Some reviewers said the smell of Sandalwood is not very strong. However, unlike Royal Hawaii Sandalwood, East India Sandalwood doesn't smell very strong anyway. If it does smell very strong, then it may be distilled from very old trees (30-80 years) and very expensive, or may have been adulterated. I've bought East India Sandalwood from another reputable company and I'd say the scents/strengths of these two are quite similar.

I do have a complaint about the euro dropper of the 15ml size. It takes forever to get a drop and sometimes the drop doesn't dispense at the center. As a result, I wasted a drop or two. The RMO service was very helpful and suggested a number of different ways to get the oil out, including using pipettes.

Nice, but VERY thick!
This is an expensive oil, no way around it. So every single drop is valuable. That being said, it is impossible to get it out of the bottle without taking the dispensing insert out, and woe to you (and me!) if you try to pour just one drop out afterward -- it's too thick to come out with the insert intact, but not so thick that it won't come running out of the bottle if you remove it. If you buy this oil, buy an eye dropper to use with it -- you WILL need it. Otherwise, it's has a nice, earthy scent, but not overpowering. Best for cosmetic or fragrance use; can't really hold its own in a diffuser.

Even though I have not tried it yet, I know that I will use it for many purposes. A blend for testosterone boosting, for a men's cologne, deodorant, etc. It is one of the more costly oils, so I have not used it in the past.

I've heard great things about sandalwood, but the other brands have special names for sandalwood, and special prices to go with those names. Thought I would give RMO a try, as they have good reviews, and great prices.
