THE FASCINATING PAST AND PERILOUS FUTURE OF SANDALWOOD
Tribal Scent examines the history of sandalwood, along with its present and potential future uses. It delves into its vital contribution to the global perfume industry. Indigenous Australians have been using sandalwood for meditation, body perfuming, cleansing ceremonies, medicines and love potions for millennia.
In the remote deserts of Australia, Indigenous Australians sustainably harvest native Sandalwood for major perfume and cosmetics companies, including Givaudan and Clarins, who are keen to harness the medicinal and lifestyle benefits of this sought-after commodity.
Tribal Scent explores how, through sandalwood, one of the oldest civilisations on the planet is working in harmony with one of the most sophisticated and urbane.
