I LOVE this scent! It's my new best seller this season. EVERYONE loves it, men and woman. 464 wax at 9% gave me a strong hot throw after curing for 2 weeks.

We did experience slight acceleration but no separation. Once we achieved a light trace, we stick blended just a few seconds more and ended up with a thick trace. The batter poured smoothly into the mold at this point. After 24 hours, we observed the soap had reached a full gel and the bars had discolored to tan with a purplish hue. The scent was very strong. After 30 days, the soap discolored to a light tan and the scent was strong. If you plan to do a bit of detailed design work it may be best to hand stir in the fragrance at a light trace to make sure you have plenty of time to work.
love the CT with the 464 wax. Currently let it cure. Will update when I burn it
I genuinely hate leaving bad reviews but after purchasing a 5 pound jug out of pure faith that this would smell high end or classy, I received it and out of the jug it was very masculine and musky but I wasn’t picking up any lavender notes. I obviously had to give it a shot, so I made a batch of candles and let them cure. The end result reminded me so much of the intense, piercing smell of axe body spray. I couldn’t think of anything else while smelling it. I genuinely hate to leave a review like this but that is my honest feedback. I don’t like it at all and I am so sad that I spent all the money on the jug. Lesson learned. This blend has an awesome name but it just doesn’t live up to it.
I absolutely loved this fragrance OOB and just knew I had to make it into a pure olive oil cold process soap for baby boy. I had big plans of color swirls and even some full moon molds at the ready... but it was a complete bust! Color?! Forget about it! I can’t even hand mix to a slight trace without it turning into soap on a stick. I just barely got it into the mold this last try and it’s just started “sweating”. This is way beyond slight acceleration. 4 batches later and I’ve just about experienced every type of failure, false trace, seizing, separating, discoloring. I’m officially giving up on the soap dreams with this fragrance but as I previously stated the smell is Devine and will make great diffusers and wax melts.
I love this fragrance, I dozed off probably 30mins after getting comfortable lol. Must have this at all times!
Great scent doesn’t have a lot of lavender but it’s a good scent
Candles at 8% in 464 was verrrrry strong, piercing even -- too on the soap side for my liking. Was looking for something more subtle.
I like it. It took a minute. I made a candle with a sample and let it sit then was wondering what that scent was that was lingering. It has a nice cold throw. The HT is good too.
I will admit, when I first received this I didn’t like it. It smelled like watered down cologne and I was honestly ready to send it back the day it came in the mail. Something told me it had potential. I decided to dip a small paper towel in the mix and let it sit for a bit to really allow the fragrance to come to life. And it did! I’m using this for candles but my living room smells so good because of the small paper towel. I would have liked to smell more of the lavender, but I enjoy this scent.
I love this fragrance. I am very pleased with it.
I love all things lavender. This scent smelled nothing like lavender or driftwood, in my opinion. It smelled like Axe body spray. It was very overpowering and not a scent you would like burning anywhere in your home. Gave me a headache when I made it. Don't buy unless you have a client base that enjoys the smell of Axe.
I’m making these candles just like any others but I’m noticing there’s no CT after a few days of curing?? I’m testing the HT now. Is anyone else experiencing this? I’ve tried 8%,9% and 10%.
I had high hopes for a salty, earthy, lavender… As if you dried a piece of driftwood and a bundle of lavender together. This however is not it. I'll echo the sentiment from the previous reviews: it simply smells like a men's cologne you would buy at a drug store. I'll never be able to use this and it will just sit on a shelf to spoil. I wouldn't recommend anyone purchasing it if you're looking for something better than what your high school boyfriend smelled like doused in Axe Body Spray. This is such a disappointment.
I never would've thought to blend lavender and driftwood, but I'm now massively addicted to this fragrance combination! I like to add a bit of extra lavender since the driftwood is so powerful, but the scent performs well in wax and gives a great CT and HT.
Its a great scent to have alone.. and also mix with a different scent.. fresh but like a mans Cologne.. I enjoyed this one
I bought a big bottle of this per the reviews and regret it. It smells like soap. If you like the smell of soap...then I guess....
I tried this scent and love it! It is one of our newest favorites. But how is this a new scent and the 16oz bottle is out of stock already? We should get the 4oz bottle at a discounted price to match the 16oz price. Same with the 16oz lavender scent. Very disappointed.
I've been making candles for about 5 years now. This is a great lavender scent. It has an airy fresh part to it. It definitely fits right in with the rest of my spa scents. I love it.
This smells like Chanel Bleu for men, and if you’re familiar with Chanel, the fragrances are high end and complex. My husband wears it, and I knew it smelled like one of his colognes when I opened it, and that’s the one. You can smell the Lavender in a subtle and masculine way. I do think my Lavender customers will like it, even if it’s not the top note. This scent is very complex, and in a high end way, so I’m expecting it to sell. I don’t keep masculine fragrances for my line, but I will keep this one, as it will appeal to both sexes. I know this will be a seller!
Absolutely loving the new scent. It’s clean but has that strong manly musk scent. You can smell a hint of lavender. If your looking for more of a true lavender scent, they do have it by its self and it smells great.
This really doesn't smell like lavender at all. Though it does smell good. Like someone else reviewed, it smells like a cologne I know, but I can't quite place it. Though I really like the way it smells, I'm giving 4 stars because it smells nothing like lavender as the name suggests.
Like many, on the hunt for a true lavender scent. This is the closest I’ve come to it but still not what people expect or are looking for.
Ive been looking for a great lavender scent for a while now. this one smells great, but still not what im looking for :( to me, personally it smells more like driftwood w/ a tiny hint of lavender. I suggest adding a little bit more lavender for all my lavender lovers like me! other than that i do like it!
Absolutely gorgeous and complex fragrance!
Not sure I get much of the Lavender but it definitely smells like an iconic 90's cologne.....my scent memory is bad so my guess is CK One is what I'm thinking of. Love it though and will enjoy blending it with other fragrance oils!
I haven’t put this in wax yet but out of bottle I just love it. It smells like lavender drifting on wood down a river. It’s really nice. I’m trying not to compare to white sage and lavender because I love sage but I think I like this one slightly better.
I'm not a huge fan of the scent of lavender but I had chose to check this out to replace my lavender & Sage fragrance oils in case I like it...and oh my god it smells amazing! I didn't think id like it so much. The green leaves top note is very obvious, but there's a light sweet note of lavender after. This scent is definitely a keeper. I'm glad I've decided to try it out. :)
I personally HATE lavender and I really like this fragrance! The lavender is really subtle, it’s definitely more driftwood. If you’re looking for a strong lavender scent this is not the one for you but if you’re a fellow lavender hater I’d give this a try!
Smells like heaven!
I am not really a fan of lavender, but I like this lavender driftwood fragrance. I don't smell much lavender in it, definitely more driftwood. Hopefully when my candle cures, I can smell a bit of lavender in it.
Smells wonderful. I am not a Lavender fan but I love this OOTB. Will update review once I have made a candle.
OOTB this immediately reminds me of the hair-washing station at a fancy salon... the driftwood almost has a soft, lathery almost lotion-like quality to it. I'm sure it will smell differently when thrown hot. you could always make it more lavender forward by blending more of CS's straight lavender oil. I think it's a great blend as is though, will just have to see what it's like when lit.
The first thought I get when smelling this is "briney" so I believe the "sea" or "driftwood" was captured. However, I am wishing for more earthy/woodsy notes (just personal preference). While this is a lovely, fresh fragrance, I am not enjoying the lack of Lavender and the overpowering "briney" scent.
