Sandalwood and agarwood each offer a rich history of ceremonial use and a sophisticated aromatic experience. Sandalwood is lighter and creamier than agarwood and shines with soft, creamy notes in Odore Mio’s Santal Oud.
The darker agarwood component provides much-needed contrast and support at the base. The two precious woods are further enhanced with layers of vanilla and cedar wood balsams.
This composition offers a rich, authentic wood experience with a sophisticated, bitter-sweet nuance. Odore Mio Santal Oud contains natural, organic Agarwood oil harvested in Assam.
Santal Oud Perfume Symbolism
Agarwood has been associated with royalty and therefore these perfumes are often marketed as “royal” scents. The fragrance of agarwood is said to be sensual and dark, as opposed to flowers which are light and delicate. It symbolizes power, virility and masculinity.
The sandalwood in the perfume symbolizes both spirituality and purity. The Indian sandalwood has been used for centuries in religious ceremonies, rituals, and purification rites. It is also used in incense because of its strong fragrance. The sandalwood tree is the source of the most prized natural perfume which is derived from the wood of the tree’s trunk known as East Indian Sandalwood.
