The Sandalwood perfume from the Officina Profumo-Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella is a typically warm, woody and persistent oriental solinote. It is inspired by the fragrance emanating from sandalwood, considered one of the most ancient and mystical perfumes. The sandalwood plant is native to India. The wood was used for the construction of Hindu temples and furniture for storing ceremonial robes or brides' outfits. It is also burned in sticks to perfume the rooms. It is one of the trees of the paradise of Buddhists, who say that its wood was used to make the chariot of the Sun. From the distillation of the wood we obtain the precious and fragrant essence that evokes a feeling of peace and serenity, relieves tensions by predisposing inward search.
