Coming from one of the most valuable trees in the world, prized for its many products and benefits, sandalwood has long been a staple in perfumery. Exotic, rich, masculine, you can’t go wrong with this scent. And it has health benefits as well. Some studies suggest it can increase alertness, reduce anxiety, and guard against bacterial infection. But you probably love it for its aroma. So why stop at just one example. Sandalwood is a very popular and traditional scent in the wet shaving world, but it is also the scent that has the most variance and a very broad spectrum to its earthy base. Here are a few notes about the different sandalwoods that we have hand selected to include in the West Coast Curated Sandalwood Shaving Cream Sample Pack.
