The new Lampe Berger Enchanting Sandalwood Home Fragrance honours Asian appeal with a precious and sensual wood: sandalwood. Santal Envoûtant creates a surprise with spicy black currant combined with the sweet tanginess of mandarin. Its heart reveals the creamy and velvety aspect of sandalwood, emphasised by the femininity of a bouquet of roses and lily of the valley. The base is warm and honeyed, combining coumarin with precious Mysore sandalwood. Perfume secret: Sandalwood is a tree which grows to around ten meters tall in India and Indonesia. The region of Mysore, once a princely state, produces the best and the most expensive type. Sandalwood exhales the soul of Indonesian and Asian civilizations and still today is used in religious ceremonies because its smoke raises the soul to the sky and encourages meditation. It is said that 3 tons of sandalwood was used for the cremation of Gandhi. This languorous wood adds roundness and tenacity to fragrances.
