It is easy to make your own sandalwood perfume recipes with essential oils.
Firstly, it is important to know that the essential oil you are using is the purest possible. If you use inferior oils you may lose the therapeutic benefits and your perfume will not last.
Unfortunately, Australian sandalwood has minimal therapeutic properties so it best not to use this. Also, East Indian Sandalwood has better therapeutic qualities than West Indian Sandalwood. Do you know where your sandalwood comes from? If not, you could have an inferior oil.
Also, sandalwood trees are virtually extinct, so if you are an environmentally conscious consumer, buy essential oil only from a company that produces their own oils and/or support local communities through co-ops without the use of chemicals, pesticides or herbicides. Of course, the essential oils I use meet this standard.
Sandalwood is a perfect base note. It creates depth to a perfume, so can be blended in many different ways.
You can use sandalwood perfume on its own too. If your essential oil is a therapeutic grade and no chemicals added, you will find the sandalwood fragrance will linger for hours. If it doesn't or worse changes its smell, this is most likely because it is adulterated and the chemicals in the essential oil are reacting with the skin (skin can be slightly acidic to slightly alkaline) causing a chemcial reaction on your skin!
Sandalwood essential oil also has skin regenerating properties so it is great for skin. One or two drops of theraeutic grade essential oil, smells delicious and is good for you!
I use these blends neat because I trust the therapeutic quality and pureness of my essential oils. If you want to dilute your essential oils, use 10mL of carrier oil (eg. almond, coconut, jojoba etc) for each recipe.
