SACRED WOOD is a creation built around the olfactive impression of the authentic Sandalwood from Mysore. In India, the extraction of the Santalum Album has been practiced in perfumery for centuries. Unfortunately, due to its popularity, the Santalum Album has been over-exploited and become highly vulnerable, to the extent that the use of its oil in perfumery is now prohibited. Kilian wanted to reconstitute the essence of this scent, which has an important footprint in our olfactive heritage. SACRED WOOD recreates the sensuality of this essential oil through steaming milk accents, polished woods and hot spices.
