Officina Profumo-Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella’s Sandalo fragrance has a warm, persistent, woody oriental scent. It is inspired by sandalwood, one of the most ancient and mystical fragrances. Sandalwood is native to India. It was used to build Hindu temples and furniture for ceremonial robes and bridal trousseaus. Thin strips can be burned as a room fragrance. It is one of the trees in the legendary Buddhist paradise; it is said its wood was used for the wheels of the sun wagon. The precious essence is obtained by distillation. It summons peaceful and serene sensations and relieves tension, predisposing for awareness of self.

My favourite scent. doubt I’ll ever change it

kerry KEENAN

I became aware of Santa Maria Novella in 2007 on a vacation in Tuscany and a good friend that we were traveling with knew about this company and suggested we stop by while we were in Florence. I'm VERY glad we did. The sandalwood cologne is still my go to cologne for the past 14 years. I've tried other sandalwoods but they all seem to have a discount store quality to them... even some of the more expensive ones. I've been wearing sandalo for the past 14 years and have no intention of changing to another. Keep up the great work!
