Santalia by Roger et Gallet c1955

Santalia was launched in 1955 by Roger et Gallet. Most people might remember it better as a hair oil. It was very popular in India.






So what does it smell like? It was a feminine scent which I describe as a woody citrus.

  • Top notes: aldehydes, mandarin orange, bergamot, lemon
  • Middle notes: tuberose
  • Base notes: sandalwood and vetiver

 I have no official notes so I will use a vintage perfume nip and tell you what I can detect. First there is a burst of aldehydes, tuberose and mandarin orange, then a shot of lemon and bergamot all layered over sandalwood and vetiver.

Santalia was relaunched in 1979. I believe it is currently discontinued.
