I am trying to do some research and am having trouble. I am interested in making a small keepsake box for my wife to store jewelry and such in. I want to use a specie of wood which has a strong pleasant smell to it, so over time things kept in the box will become perfumed. There seems to be very little information in this reguard. The only species I have learned about that might work are Sandalwood and Tamboti. I know cedar is very aromatic, but it does not have a scent that I feel works in this situation. I also hope that the wood I settle on will maintain its scent for decades. My research thus far indicates that Sandalwood would definatly do this, and Tamboti might.
So my question is, has anyone here worked with Sandalwood or Tamboti Lumber? Would the scent that these woods produce be one a woman would enjoy? And of course, if there are any other woods out there that might work for this purpose, I am open to suggestion.
Thank you very much for your time,
