I thought, since I have used basil essential oil by the pint that I would definitely love this as well. I was not as pleased as some of your other customers, nor was I put off as much as others. I just think I will have to blend it to get the throw that I am looking for. I think it could use a little more sweetness to be closer to basil. I find that oak moss mellows this when using essential oils. I am in agreement that the name needs to be changed as it gives a false idea of what it should smell like. I will , however, try it in my candles, as the reviews stated it smells very green. That is a sought after scent.
