Amyris Essential Oil, (W.I. Sandalwood), Haiti
Amyris Oil, (W.I. Sandalwood), Haiti Amyris Essential Oil is a viscous liquid of pale yellow, or brownish yellow hues. It smells woody, sweet and sometimes faintly peppery. The body notes are long lasting and fresh. It is recommended as a low cost alternative to Indian, Indonesian and Australian Sandalwoods in some cases where scent is not the primary concern. In the past Amyris was used in the fragrance industry to adulterate Vetiver and today is still sometimes used to adulterate Indian sandalwood. Typically yields range between 2 and 3%.
