SANTAL DĀN SHĀ embodies the uplifting and serene Chinese imperial palaces and their awe-inspiring regal gardens and their lush land captivating landscape. It is a scent that celebrates summertime breeze at dusk as well as the aroma of trees and the peacefulness and freshness of the lake around them. The master perfumer behind this releases is none other than the talented, Fabrice Pellegrin. The perfume does such a wonderful job conveying its mood thanks to an interesting composition of notes. The sandalwood used here is the inspiration behind the fragrance name thanks to its rich, cinnabar-toned color, which is known in China as dān sha. The sandalwood also evokes a feeling of oneness and harmony with nature.

Santal Dan Sha

Santal Dan Sha’s woody yet refreshing scent gives you the feeling of breeze drifting through the imperial palaces’ gardens. It combines the balmy sensuality of Sandalwood with the sparkling freshness of Bergamot, and the aromatic spices of Cardamom, ultimately creating this dreamy and majestic impression. The top notes open with fresh, juicy, and sparkling premium Bergamot Heart from Calabria, Italy. This blends with warm, peppery Cardamom Heart from Guatemala with a Violet Leaf accord nuance.


The middle notes offer Elemi, a resin extracted from tropical trees, accompanied by Incense extract and Musks for a more lingering effect. The Cardamom Heart from Guatemala is extracted by steam distillation and CO2 fractionation, resulting in a pure extract with sparkling, radiant, aromatic, and peppery facets and finally, at its base, we get Sandalwood from the South Pacific Island of New Caledonia, extracted by a water vapor distillation process, to create its creamy, sensual effect. The creamy Sandalwood is also blended with Virginia Cedar Essence and Dreamwood, the latter being a technological note that amplifies the natural Sandalwood.
