The scent of this fragrance is pretty much like the essential oil, almost identical. I found with this oil that my normal wax/wick combo wasn't enough. The wicks smoldered out after about 2 burns. After that they never recovered, so I would say wick up. I use GB 464 Soy wax and ECO wicks. My fragrance percentage is 8%.

I was doing some samples this weekend using a full 12% FO load on GB464...Looks like 12% is too much for this FO, instead of a candle I wound up with a tiki torch!!
I added the Citronella at 185, stirred for 3 minutes and poured, beautiful looking candle with an awesome cold throw, nice flat top and no frosting.
I give this NO RATING until I do another test. I am going to melt down the 3 tins and add more wax to get the load to 10%, re-pour and give it another shot.

The summers here are crazy for bugs, it almost makes you want to stay inside so I bought this to try in the hopes that I could give my skin a break from the bug spray. Worked perfect, even in my small 25cent jars from the flea market! Goodbye bug spray!
