I used this in GB 464, at 2oz per lb and it is about 4 out of 5 stars for strength. I would say just enough, but if you are looking for a REALLY strong scent, then this might not be for you. The smell is very hard to describe, it is ambiguous enough to be influenced by what you name the candle. If you call it something "beachy" then I swear it smells like sea air, exotic spice, and sun tan lotion. If you think "manly" then it really takes on a more masculine feel. My customers reactions to think scent was more in line with, "Huh, that is interesting" than "Omg I love that". Probably would be best in a soap, bathroom candles, or a candle for a mixed crowd where you want to go for a more neutral smell, and less love it or hate it (like lemon or apple pie). Male customers might like this one because it is more complex than a body wash smell.
