I originally designed Roses and Sandalwood as a custom order for a client. She loved the perfume scent and told me it helped her with her anxiety and depression as well. I didn't understand the reason she received the antidepressant/anti-anxiety benefits of "Roses and Sandalwood" until I researched the perfume oils I used within the perfume. I designed the perfume as a beautiful, classic fragrance with many long lasting base notes. I also discovered a classic perfume which helped lift one's spirit.

Understand, I designed this perfume as a classic, beautiful long lasting fragrance in which you may smell the sensual perfume notes on your pillow the next day. The mood-boosting properties may be an added benefit. I am a certified perfumer, but if you read my bio, you will learn I was in the pharmaceutical business for years and still have the desire to understand what effects our bodies and why. I could explain each of the following notes from a perfumery perspective, but most know the floral scent of a fresh, classic, red rose; the spicy, warm scent of cinnamon; the woodsy, earthy scent of Sandalwood; the intoxicating, slightly sweet, dark, musky-earthy aroma of Patchouli; the old church-like resinous, rich, incense of Frankincense and Myrrh and the deep, sweet and warm, smooth, round quality of amber. If you want to continue reading about "Sandalwood and Roses" you will learn why these individual scents have a scientifically calming effect as well. If the science stuff is not of interest, you do not have to read the rest .... just wear the perfume and love it!

Classic Rose Essential Oil: is frequently recommended by aromatherapists for its antidepressant and mood-boosting properties. According to aromatherapist Jeanne Rose in her book, "The Aromatherapy Book: Applications and Inhalations," rose oil is used to soothe the nerves, calm the nervous system and act as a tonic to relieve symptoms of depression. Just the aroma of rose oil can provide alleviation from depressive symptoms. It has been used throughout history in the ancient art of aromatherapy as a mood-elevating supplement. Interestingly, because rose petals are not very high in oil content, it takes several thousand pounds of rose petals to produce just one ounce of this valuable oil, depending on the variety of plant used. Due to these factors, rose oil tends to be expensive. However, its price does not prevent it from being one of the most popular essential oils.

Cinnamon: Warm and comforting to one's spirit and soul. Cinnamon Bark essential oil’s familiar aroma comes from the naturally occurring constituent cinnamaldehyde. Cinnamon was introduced around 500 b.c. to the Egyptians, Hebrews, Greeks, and Romans using it as a spice, perfume, and other uses. Moses included cinnamon in anointing oil.

Sandalwood: The wood and oil have been highly valued for centuries, and Sandalwood has a documented history of many applications: It was traditionally used as an incense in religious ceremonies and for enhancing meditation. Sandalwood has a sweet, woody aroma that enhances the mood and is frequently used in meditation for its grounding effects.

Patchouli: When you're feeling blue, patchouli can fight depression. It helps relieve feelings of sadness or loss and will renew feelings of hope. That's why patchouli essential oil is so often used in aromatherapy. It's thought to uplift the mood, eliminate disappointment and relax tension.

Frankincense: Arieh Moussaieff, a postdoctoral fellow in plant sciences at the Weizmann Institute of Science with his Ph.D. adviser Raphael Mechoulam and an international team of co-workers, found evidence a compound in frankincense resin exhibits anti-depression and anti-anxiety effects (FASEB J. 2008)

Myrrh: The team's additional tests suggested that furanoeudesma-1,3-diene and other terpene are primarily responsible for the analgesic effects and the compounds affect opioid receptors in the brain, which influence pain perception.

Amber: Amber essential oil has great energy, and is good for helping anxiety, depression, and stress heal.

The above was my research of the perfume oils in, "Roses and Sandalwood" and possibly the reason many of my clients notice a calming, mood-boosting effect while wearing their favorite perfume. Usually, I explain all the notes in the perfume I blend from the perspective of the scent. I thought it would be interesting to give some scientific background as to perfume oils and their calming effects.
