This scent does smell more masculine than not but I do love it. Its mild at the moment but I'm new to candle making and still working on getting excellent hot throws. I tried all my scents at 10% in either 464 or A Coconut-Soy blend from another supplier. 464 is so difficult to work with I'm leaning toward the more expensive coconut-soy wax. Giving 464 1 more go around before kicking it to the curb tho.
