The smell out of the bottle was terrible, but I thought I'd give it a try and see if it changed once added to the soy wax. It did not. Immediately after pouring the candles, my three year old asked why our kitchen smelled like poop :( This scent is VERY strong, bitter, and not what fresh coffee smells like at all. When I received my box, the bottle was about half poured out into the package. Candle Science kindly replaced the bottle, however I wish I had just asked for a different scent (honeysuckle jasmine is lovely!) instead. It's just not good. All of the other scents I've ordered have been great though!
