Wanted to do a forest inspired candle and used 8 drops of Hunter Green in 1 lb of soy wax, but it came out a blue-green (almost dark turquoise) instead. The color itself is vibrant and beautiful, just not exactly what I wanted! Might try the Key West green next.

Usage: 1oz colors 100 lbs soy or 200 lbs paraffin to a medium shade. 4oz colors 400 lbs soy or 800 lbs paraffin to a medium shade.
Deep, rich colors are difficult in soy. They require 2-3 times the dye that paraffin requires, sometimes more. Note that standard dye amounts create a washed-out, pastel color in soy. We suggest making a test swatch to figure out the dye amount you will need to get the color you'd like.
Due to the extreme concentration of our liquid dyes there is a noticeable odor that will not be detectable at normal usages in finished candles.

All of my dyes come from CS, mixes well, no chemical smell, great colors in soy and paraffin
Tried this dye in soy wax in a variety of concentrations up to 10 drops per lb soy wax and could only attain a seafoam greenish blue. Could not get up to a darker forest green in soy wax and found the key west green dye to be a more natural shade of green compared to this dye, at least in soy wax.
Candle Science is the only place I buy my dyes for soy and paraffin candles. It does take more for soy versus paraffin. A tip that I've always done is after you add your FO, add your dye, stir well then drop a few drops on a paper plate, if too light, add more dye. Take notes! (I add my FO before my dye because some FO's do discolor dyes and I want a true color test)
I used 5 drops in 14 ounces of GW464 soy. Expected to see a nice dark Hunter Green, but ended up with a bright Seafoam Green. Very very disappointed, and hoping the other colors I received don't perform the same way :(
I used this in Comfort Blend (IGI 4627) and it was such a gorgeous shade of green. Highly recommended for all pine scents. Very happy with CandleScience's liquid dyes. Will buy again.
