Quintis | Proudly Australian, Sustainably Sourced Indian Sandalwood

This is an outstanding company producing plantation-grown Indian sandalwood oil, specifically Santalum album. This species was harvested to near extinction and Quintis has responsibly and sustainably restored the supply of this vital oil. There is no real replacement for it in fine fragrances.
