I got this as my free 1oz sample and honestly, I regret not buying it sooner. Gorgeous, deep and rich, warm earthy scent. Used at 6% in soy 444. Admittingly, I haven't burned the candle yet so I cant comment on scent throw.

We did not experience any acceleration or separation. The batter was slow to come to trace and very easy to work with. After 24 hours, we could see the soap had reached a partial gel, just through the very center. We observed an unusual discoloration pattern; the outer edges of the soap had turned a dark mustard yellow while the inner area turned a gold color. The scent was quite strong and more of the woody notes came through. After 30 days, the soap had discolored to a light brown shade and the scent became much more balanced although it was not quite as strong. The discoloration would make this a great fragrance to experiment with a wood grain pattern by using various amounts of titanium dioxide.
I agree with the other reviewer that said this is in the middle of masculine and feminine... it's a real nice scent and my testers are pleased. I personally am I fan of burning this. I have increased the FO load on all my candles as I like a nice strong candle that will fill up a room. 12% FO, add at 185 and no issues with sinking, etc. Have used this in some mixer practice candles and I feel it adds a nice base for the lighter FO's in the blend.
This scent is middle road between masculine and feminine and smells AMAZING! I didn't have trouble with the throw but I mixed it in 464 at 60 degrees. Try the lower temp so the scent doesn't burn off.
This is my favorite scent. I find it to be elegant. I use it in my status jars. No dye. I agree it is a soft scent and works great in smaller areas. I may try using 12% load next time and use a smaller jar.
Hands down, one of my favorite scents for CP soap. It's not my fave out of bottle, but the scent changed during cure to become so balanced and smooth! It's the perfect unisex scent and I had no problems using for CP design. No acceleration, separation or discoloration (I did a zebra stripe design and soap at room-temp).
This FO smells amazing straight from the bottle and I had high expectations until I mixed it with 464 at 185deg for my candles. Unfortunately the CT and HT are veery light and mild. I would have preferred if it was more intense. I could only smell it when I am just inches away. Any recommendations on how to better use it as I really like the smell...?
