Very strong

The hot throw on this is very strong. I'm going to use a lower percentage in my next candles because this was a well-loved scent. I get the incense, orange blossom, and patchouli when burning. Depending on who has burned this candle, I get comments that it smells soapy clean, a zen experience, and others. No matter what the scent reminds people of, they love it and want more. Also has a strong cold throw.

Amazing Scent

We absolutely love this fragrance and so do our customers, I sold out! This scent is used in our candle meditation line and is definitely one of our favorites from Candle Science. The CT and HT are amazing! Five-star rating! Super-fast shipping too! We love Candle Science, hands down our favorite fragrance oils.

Absolute Classic

Fan Favorite for us for nearly a decade. Truly the best version I've ever found in my 25 years in the industry. Performs perfectly at 8% in 464, we adjust cure to 3 weeks for best performance.

Not for Me ... Too Strong

I wanted to like this scent. I made my wax melts at 8% (like I do with all my FO.) It is just way too strong for me and almost made me nauseous. I realize this is just my personal feeling and there is nothing wrong with the FO I am sure. I am just starting on my Wax Melt selling venture and am hopeful customers will enjoy this scent as I do know it is a popular fragrance (which is why I purchased it.)

This old man remembers the scent of the "head" shops or the old gift shops at the coast. This is it!!
Thank you

Too much Amber maybe!

My customers ** review: This one doesn't smell like dragons blood to me. I think of amber and patchouli and woody. And that's not this scent. Is she correct on this? It's the only bad review I've received from this scent. But, she may be right after seeing the other 3 star reviews here. Maybe I'll try to rename this one.

Hello! Thank you for taking the time to share this review. Scent is incredibly subjective, especially when you have existing ideas of what a certain fragrance should smell like. Patchouli, cedar, and amber-y incense are all notes in this fragrance, but the other notes might stand out more to an individual nose. It's up to you how to proceed with naming, and getting a few more opinions might help in informing your decision! We hope this helps, but please feel free to reach out to if there's anything else we can do to assist.

Pretty Good!

Dragon's blood is one of my favorite scents for incense, so thought I would give this a try.

It's not exactly like an incense stick or cone, but it is a very close second.

Smells great!

This one will be a keeper for me. I bought a 1 ounce bottle for testing. I'll definitely be coming back for more.

Good if you like dragon's blood

It smells almost exactly the same as the original version, still as overpowering on the senses, just not as sharp and with a hint of sweetness. Behaves well in soy wax. This is another one that is no longer soap safe however, and since I make both candles and soap I'll have to find an alternative somewhere else. Disappointing.

Now what I expected... and that's good!

This is a true winner! This fragrance was recommended by a customer; I'm so glad we too their advice. We love the deep resin smell and the overall fragrance complexity. The cold/hot is awesome. Great for our container candles and melts.
