Australian album Sandalwood. What does it smell like?

A Series of Sandalwood Dreams – Part 7

We stepped back in time with Part 1 and Part 2 of this Series of Sandalwood Dreams. Then we looked at the planting of a sandalwood dream way back in 1999. We moved forward to September 2013 for the first harvest and then processed the dream without reference to Freud. Yesterday we looked at the distillation process.

What does this Australian album sandalwood smell like?
I asked a Sufi Mystic who is also a Perfumer / Composer, an Aromatherapist, a movie star from Priscilla, Queen of the Desert and my mate Clayton Ilolahia who kindly supplied a photo of his organ and a formula for using this newly available oil.

You can read their reactions and impressions in Part 7 over at Basenotes; click here to web-travel.
