A Series of Sandalwood Dreams – Part 8
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. After distillation we sent the oil to several people; 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 find out their reactions and impressions in Part 7.
Tonight we are giving away 8 bottles of Australian album sandalwood oil so that you can then make your own evaluation to satisfy your curiosity or your needs.
Part 8, The Giveaway is over at Basenotes; click here to web-travel.
Thank you for dreaming with me. We have found a new and sustainable reality for a tree that was almost lost from this world due to over-harvesting.
