By itself this FO to me smells like celery sticks, like the remnants of a failed diet that has lingered in the fridge far too long, is what it reminds me of haha. However.. When I blend it with other FO's, it adds a neutral yet distinct wood quality to a blend and the strange celery note vanishes. Try doing a 3:1 blend between this FO and vanilla FO to see (smell) what I mean. 2:1:1 blend of this FO, a vanilla FO and a black pepper FO was pretty amazing. The Driftwood FO held its own with a neutral wood quality at just 50% of the blend, wasn't loud but was definitely notably present in the character of the overall scent, again sans weird celery smell. I recommend getting a sample of this FO to play with if you like to make multi-FO blends.
