This did rice a tad in my CP soap batch, but was able to stick blend it out easily, totally workable but extra stick blending means probably no intricate designs. Slight discoloration after 24 hours, but not prohibitively so. The smell, though, is totally worth it. Musk, amber, and wood shine through but not in an incense-y way. Definitely would buy again, even with slight ricing and discoloration.
