Reviewer: HEATHER Kuhn (HICKSVILLE, OH) 5.25.2017
I purchased this oil as a substitute and I have found that it surprisingly packs a punch! It has been very effective! I wasn't sure what to expect from Amyris - it was my 1st bottle ever & I'm extremely satisfied- I do wish it smelled a bit better- but effectiveness is my #1 concern...so it gets 5 stars

Dark and sweet smelling
Absolutely love this essential oil. Has woodsy and citrus undertones. Both male and female customers seem to enjoy this. Blends well with citrus and florals.

I enjoyed using the Amyris
I often use this Amyris essential oil. It smells earthy and clay like to me. It has a thicker texture then most essential oils. Scent has good staying power.

Great sandalwood substitute
I use this essential oil as a substitute for the other more pricey sandalwood oil. It smells great and blends with so many different other oils. Great for CP soap making.

Great for woody smelling soaps
As the description says, this oil is not a substitute for true Sandalwood oil but its woody notes are similar to Sandalwood even if the warm and soft notes of true Sandalwood are absent. I'm going to try this oil blended with a small amount of Sandalwood oil plus Sandalwood powder in a cp soap and see how it turns out.
