Our Story

At Mt Romance, we specialise in everything that is Sandalwood. Offering health, wellness and beauty products that leverage the calming nature of this unique ingredient goes hand in hand with being one of the largest distillers of sandalwood oil in the world. As well as using local suppliers, we aim to support local organisations and charities through active involvement and sponsorships. We believe a healthy, happy community is critical to our success so at Mt Romance we work with local organisations to help better our community.

When did it all begin?

Established in 1997, Mt Romance pioneered the distillation and use of Australian Sandalwood (Santalum spicatum) in the fragrance industry. Recognising its wide range of applications, Mt Romance introduced Australian Sandalwood oil to the cosmetics, aromatherapy, fragrance and therapeutic markets globally, carving out a niche position for Australian Sandalwood oil as natural, sustainable and healing ingredient. 

In 2008, Mt Romance became a part of the Quintis Group, strengthening its value as an oil distillery by expanding to additionally work with the most premium species of Sandalwood, Sandalwood Album. Quintis first sourced the seeds from Mysore in India in 1997 and began growing plantations of Sandalwood Album in Kununurra, Western Australia. On top of manufacturing the Mt Romance range of sandalwood retail products, Mt Romance and Quintis boast a high quality range of bulk materials (oil & wood), exported internationally.
