I'm just getting started, and picked this FO because it sounded different and interesting. Some people don't like anise, but I do. It's not overpowering at all, it's actually really delicate and sweeter than I expected. I tried 6% in soy wax (that I bought somewhere else and isn't the brands here, sounds similar to 464). I made a handful of candles using different FOs and this one is my 10-year old son's favorite. It's not like a jelly bean, maybe if a higher percentage was used maybe it is. I keep coming back to this candle with no color in it and I do really like it. I'll be getting more for sure. I like the idea somebody else had about using it to add complexity to other FOs.
