Sandalwood Is the Scent of the Summer—Here Are 9 of Our Faves to Try

Think of sandalwood as a gateway note—it’s an easy place to start if you’ve been loyal to scents like floral and vanilla but are looking for something slightly more sophisticated. And thanks to its incredibly light, slightly musky finish, sandalwood happens to be one of our go-to fragrances for summer. It's the kind of second-skin scent that makes you lean in just a little bit closer.

While certain sandalwood scents are practically household names at this point (ahem, Le Labo), we have many favorites on the market—and at every price range, to boot. Find nine of our favorites below.
