    I don't have much experience with Indonesian sandalwood oil. Any experiences? Trusted vendors? What species of santalum are we talking about?

    You can get GREAT and really bland santalum album oil from Indonesia. But if you can find a nice old Indonesian sandalwood you could be in for a treat

    Thanks for the information. So it's a stone's toss, basically.

    Anyone know of any decent vendors?

    I have tried both of the current SW offerings from Agarwoodindonesia. I bought a bottle of the SW Roots which I found to be subtle yet complex. Subtle not in terms of projection but the nuances you notice when you remember to smell your wrist. Nice low lying spices under the butter cream lemon layer. His SW Heartwood is a quality SW oil but it did not take me anywhere super special that some others have. Make sure you take advantage of the shipping costs and get a bottle of his Golden Vetiver (which is really a reddish brown). This is one of the best vetivers I have tried. A real relaxing beauty. As good or slightly better than EO Khus Malagasy, which was easily my favorite.

    If you want to try some Indonesian Sandalwood oil I have a mix of heartwood and roots from old trees that you could try. I ship from California.
