I would give this 5 stars for scent if it had behaved a little better. The scent is great. Definitely smells like spruce, but mellow, not too sharp like some pine scents are, very pleasant. I got my soap to a thin trace and added the scent. It riced a little, not too badly. I was able to stick blend it back together, but it went to a thick trace pretty quickly. My recipe can usually take a LOT of stick blending before it thickens, but this scent definitely accelerated that. I was still able to color a portion and tried glopping it into the Christmas tree pattern I was going for. We'll see how it turns out. I'm sure it will be fine, not nice and thin like I wanted, but still pretty, but I would definitely not recommend this scent for the project I attempted or any kind of design really, just maybe two colors and plan on spooning them into the mold, nothing fancy.
