I really wanted to love this fragrance oil, but I just don't know what to think about it. Out of the bottle it isn't bad, in fact it smells similar to essential oil...But burning in the candle, the fragrance actually made my head hurt, which is pretty rare (and I love lavender.) To test I used 464 at max load (which is something I'm doing for all of my tests, loading at the max % per wax type), however for my second test I'm going to put less oil in it and possibly test with EcoSoya CB Advanced wax. Perhaps it is too strong at 12%, so I'm giving it a second chance and sending those testers to a fellow lavender lover. If she likes it then I'll probably order more of it and see how it does, but if not, I'm going to have to wait until I can afford to work with a more expensive lavender fragrance oil for my candles (which is a bummer!). It's just a little too artificial, and a little soapy for my personal preference... It smells better when burnt with a vanilla candle, I may also test a lavender and very vanilla mix. So far this is the only CS FO that I'm really hesitant about. Rating 2.5 stars.
