I love the scent in the bottle but when I made the candles using 10% fragrance load and 464 soy wax there isn’t any hot throw. Example 4oz jelly jar with a 8cd wick! What am I doing wrong? I really what this fragrance to work because I purchased a lot of it. I read some of the reviews and someone said it worked well for them using 20% fragrance load with 464 soy wax. So maybe I will try that. I only worry about my candles sweating from the fragrance load.

Amber and Driftwood is a warm, earthy blend of sandalwood and musk. Top notes of airy ozone and a hint of citrus open up to a sandalwood core that’s smoothed out with lightly sweet benzoin. Resinous amber and cedar blend with dark musk and a touch of powder for a rich woodiness in the base.
This fragrance is beautiful as an “everyday” scent in candles, melts, and reed diffusers, and is also a great scent to blend with other fragrances. In handmade soap and other body care products, Amber and Driftwood adds a soft but luxurious touch.
This fragrance is infused with with natural essential oils, including cedar, patchouli, and clove leaf.

We did not experience any acceleration or separation. This took quite a while to reach a light trace and was very easy to work with. We continued stick blending to a medium trace and the batter turned a bright yellow color. After 24 hours the soap had discolored to a deep mustard color. We observed that the soap reached a partial gel without insulation. The fragrance was mild but had an amazingly true woody character. After 30 days, the soap had discolored to a chocolate brown shade and the scent was unchanged. Due to the discoloration, this would be a good fragrance for a darker color palette or using some unfragranced batter to create lighter swirls.
I made a candle with this and Egyptian Amber for about a 10% scent load, and it was wonderful! This scent has a lovely warm smell and the combination filled my entire home with scent.
This is one of my all time favs. It is very similar to drift wood, but the amber rounds it out and adds some depth. It is not overwhelming In the bottle, or in reed diffusers. I would add that I haven’t tried it in a candle yet, but I have no doubt it will preform. CS, this one is a keeper!
Very similar to the last version but I like it better! Great CT and HT! Adding it to my line.
Love this scent. In fact I bought more container already. Used 464 with 10% fragrance load and found it to be perfect. No dye. Will make this one of my permanent scents.
I made a soy candle using 464 soy wax and 10% fragrance. The hot throw is very weak I placed the candle in a small area with door closed and I still couldn’t smell anything. Maybe I should switch my wax.

Used this fragrance for the first time a week ago. 464 wax with Eco 8 wick, double wicked, 16 oz flat top container. Wax heated to 190, added a little bit of the canary yellow dye block, after heat up, 20% scent load, in slightly heated containers, After 2 minutes of gently mixing in frag and dye, poured. Flawless tops, burnt even but more importantly, the fragrance is AMAZING!!!! Only waited 2 days to trial run......filled up a 900 sqft room with scent but was not overpowering. There are notes of powder and I would say some smokey scents. I LOVE this scent! My mom took them all, so now, In my basket, I am ordering more.
Note: I love a lot of their scents but do have knack for liking their baby powder, fireside, clean/lush cotton, fresh picked cucumber, cactus and jade, and tomato leaf, just to give you a sense of my palette. In the fall I do love their creme brûlée, caramel popcorn, black rasberry/vanilla, frosted juniper and cranberry woods, but those to me are winter scents.
This scent to me is a year round scent limited by no seasons and could be used all year round. It does smell fabulous!!!
