Santal Woods

  • A walk along a coastal inlet in Northern Maine sets the stage for Santal Woods. This walk became its inspiration, so let’s go there as you imagine yourself walking barefoot along the coast. Dewy grass tickles your feet as the morning sun glances through the evergreens surrounding you. The slightly-salted coastal air breezes in as this aromatic foguere opens with a lavender-wintergreen infusion paired with a zesty slice of lime and bite of black pepper that slowly eases into a mossy, wooded, and green base of cypress and fir. The coast of Maine, the water’s edge and untouched Earth before dawn; that’s what you find bottled up in Santal Woods; a green haven of comfort and serenity.


    Notes of lemon, wintergreen, persian lime, lavender, black pepper, coumarin, vetiver, cypress, oakmoss, sandalwood, and balsam fir.
