Maybe for others who don't have the strong sense memory of walking through a school hallway with this scent unbearably strong in the air, it will be a good scent. For me unfortunately it's a bit of a bad flashback. But it does smell more mellow when the candle cures and seems to perform well.

We stick blended this to a light trace and saw no signs of acceleration or separation. The batter seemed easy to work with and stayed fluid. When we started to pour the batter into the mold, it was at a nice light trace but then started to thicken as we poured. After 24 hours the soap was very soft and would not come out of the silicone mold. We allowed it to sit for an extra three days. The scent was strong, and we noticed a deep purple discoloration forming on the edges of the bars. After the cure, the scent remained strong. The purple discoloration remained but had started to fade. This fragrance would do well with a simple swirl design or layers due to the batter thickening.
OUR WORKSHOP SMELLS AMAZING...JUST USED THIS FRAGRANCE IN OUR ALOE SOAP SO EXCITED TO SEE HOW IT SMELLS AFTER A FEW DAYS :) WILL BE BUYING A JUG NEXT
Easy to work with in CP soap with only very mild ricing that blends out quickly. As soon as I put this bar soap out, customers grab it up because it smells so delightful. It smells like it could be a masculine fragrance but I think women very much enjoy it too.
A top selling scent!
I typically sell out when I bring my candles to events. Following the same steps for making my other candles, I noticed the HT with this one is very slim and a little weak. I dont think this is a flaw but rather an opportunity to mix this fragrance with another that has stronger base notes. I'll be tweaking my formula until I get this one to work because its truly a woodsy joy
This scent has an amazing cold and hot throw. This is a beautiful unisex scent and definitely a top favorite among my clients. Buy it !
Loved this scent OOB. As I was making the candles with the 464 soy wax, it smelled amazing. However, once cured for 3 weeks, the candle had no HT.
One of my favorites! This has a very earthy, yet clean & sophisticated smell.
Like I said……. this one is SOAPY but it's also airy and dreamy like a daydream about a nice clean beach house on the outer banks or nantucket
This scent is an absolute dream. I'm including it in an upcoming candle collection and I just recently tested this in CP soap, so here is my performance review!
I made a candle with this (not mixed) in 464 wax and in a 444/coconut wax blend at a 9% fragrance load using CD wicks. Each time, this fragrance performed very well. The scent was strong in both the cold throw and the hot throw, I didn't notice the wick sooting more than usual (I like to abuse burn when I test), and I found that I didn't need to cure this one for the recommended two weeks to have a great HT. My friend and sister who have seen my upcoming collection absolutely adore this scent and it is their favorite in the collection.
I mixed this with High Tide (50/50) in CP soap two weeks ago. I wanted to do a drop swirl technique and split my batter up into three equal parts. I was wary about this fragrance since it can cause your batter to accelerate slightly, so I whisked in my fragrance after whisking in my colorants. I didn't notice any acceleration and I found I had more than enough time to get my batter in the mold! Maybe this was because I mixed with High Tide, but it still performed beautifully. Two weeks later, my soap is still on the curing rack but the scent is still just as strong as when I made it!
I've been selling candles for only about 5 months now, but this is my best seller! Smells amazing. I haven't had anyone dislike this smell yet (people can be particular!) and its a personal favorite of mine.
Absolutely love this scent...It’s clean, woodsy, with a touch of masculine but yet perfect everyone. One of my favorites to give as gifts!
Awesome. Never lets me down. Men and Women love it. Great for candles, melts, diffusers and soaps.
Great manly candle.
Loved this scent as a great unisex scent. Was a little nervous because my soap batter riced as soon as I poured in the fragrance, but a brief stick blend smoothed it out completely. I soaped at room temp (78F) and had plenty of time to work with my design. My recipe was 27% coconut oil, 5%, 35% olive oil, and 33% palm oil with 32% lye concentration. I will be ordering more of this fragrance to add into my body scrub and wax melt collections.
i cant describe smells, but this smells amazing. great scent for a manly candle that both men/women love!!
I love this scent! I bought it because I saw great reviews It’s very calming and earthy. I use 464 wax, the libbey tumblers, orange dye, cd 20 wicks, 8.5-9% fragrance oil. Strong ht and ct. Very happy with it.
What can I say that hasn't been said by others?! I love this scent! Some negative reviews said this smelled like Axe body spray but I couldn't disagree more. It is strong and has a great hot and cold throw, but is not overpowering. Very earthy and masculine, but I think it will appeal to everyone.
This scent is very strong and fragrance! I generally blend it and use about a 8% to get a nice, subtle HT. I would highly recommend for any upscale candle line.
Simply amazing. I’ve used this in our manly wax melts, candles and soaps, and the response has been great. Highly recommend for “The ManCave”.
I don't know what real oak moss smells like, but looking at the image I was expecting a damp, earthy-type of smell. This is more like a very soft strength cologne smell and not really a "natural" smell like I had hoped. It's very popular judging by the reviews though, but I was looking for more a more earthy scent and if you are too,this isn't it.
I am not a fan of this type of fragrance and have mostly florals and citrus FO’s. I choose this FO as a free gift after looking at the great reviews about it and decided to give it a try. WOW, I was surprised at how much I liked it. My BH really liked it. In fact, I just ordered the larger size for some soap and candles. LOVE IT!! It’s 5 star rating.
Whoa! This FO is strong smelling and smells artifical on its cold throw. It does spice up more and settle down when the candle is burning. The hot throw scent reminds me of a certain clothing store doused in cologne. I would try mixing this FO with a Blue Spruce or Fir and see how that would turn out.
This scent is very strong & almost headache inducing. I wanted this to be natural or botanical for my spiritual based candle line, but it smells like Drakkar Noir & Axe bodyspray had a baby.
immediate flashback to a high school boyfriend. This smells SO MUCH like a late 90's, early '00 young man. I like it, but that is the overwhelming impression.
This scent is a great unisex scent. Used in soy 464 with great strength and hot throw. Love this complex fragrance!
I only got the 1oz to try because this scent was always sold out, and now I see why! I love love love this scent! It’s clean, woodsy, with a pinch of masculine. I currently live in the desert and it’s giving me east coast vibes. It’s giving me memories of trees and moisture lol.
I received this as a free sample in my last CS order and I'm absolutely in love with it! Perfectly complements the Frankincense&Myrrh and Sandalwood notes in one of the candles I'll be starting my shop with. I just came back here to invest in a larger bottle of it because I can't get enough!
I've huffed a whole bunch of CandleScience scents now as I work toward establishing my line. This one is far and away my favorite. It's simultaneously earthy and clean. I use it in candles and I also recently got a 16oz bottle because I want to use it in a personal body wash. I want to smell like this. Give that gift to others.
Highly recommend. Strong scent throw without being overbearing (444 75% and coconut 25%).
This is the scent I use throughout my home for candles. I've given them as gifts and never had a single person dislike the smell. It's clean and fragrant and hands down my personal favorite scent.
needless to say, I LOVE THIS SCENT!! it smells like sexy cologne. I cannot wait to make my candles with this scent!!
This a dead on the spot for a mans cologne, very long lasting fragrance oil😁
LOVE this scent! It is nice and strong and somewhat high end. It smells a little like the Abercrombie store, which is kind of nostalgic, but i really like it!
I love this scent so much and it's one of my favorites but it's a little weaker than I would like in 464. I might have to increase my usage rate of 1oz per lb to 1.5oz per lb and see if it has any effect.
Used in 464 soy wax with a 10% fragrance load.
One of my favorite candles is the Oakmoss and Amber from PF candles, but the candle can be a *bit* pricey. This FO is a perfect dupe, and both the CT and HT are strong. It’s a great masculine scent with a perfect blend of amber and earthiness.
This is one is one of my best sellers is a beautiful blend!
It is one of my couples customers favorites blend.
I use in my soy wax candles.
This scent is one of our bestsellers. It is great in candles as well as our soaps. Warm, sensual, and absolutely masculine, this is a scent that will sell all year round with women and men alike.
I have had people asking for a good masculine scent, so I bought this one and they love it! Great woodsy masculine scent for sure.

This scent is REALLY nice. Absolutely love it! It's a great seller for the men I use it in sugar scrubs and bath bombs!
Excellent Hot&Cold throw.
This is a strong whole house fragrance you can feel confident in this one.
My batch; 464 wax 6-12oz jars (72oz wax)
candles;Good at one week cure.
Melts; Super strong at 2days
this is my new favorite!
Customers say this is like a sexy man in the woods.
This is a great scent that I thought would lean more towards the male crowd, but it has ended up being equally popular with both men and women. It has incredible throw as a candle and sells very well. It sells even better as an eau de parfum! I use 8% in 464 wax. Fills a whole room.
I LOVE this scent! It smells very handsome and makes for a wonderful manly sugar scrub. Will buy again!
Wonderful cold throw but no hot throw. Not a fan of the new formula.
This one moved a touch fast during CP soaping. Had to change planned tilted tiger technique to a drop pour. But, I love the scent. Holds well. Discolored to light tan. My planned tiger technique was modified into a jaguar technique, but as I was planning on a big cat collection, it worked out fine. Still looks and smells amazing months later!
Loved this one!
This is the first candle I've made that actually has any (excellent too) hot and cold throw in GB464 at 10% fragrance load. I used the Alex Method because nothing else worked and I was about to give up. This scent is lovely and in keeping with my island inspired theme candles I'm hoping to start making for the holidays. Can't quite describe it tho. Definitely has masculine appeal.
This has been one of my best-selling and strongest fragrances in my business for years. The latest bottle we received is just plainly...weak. In fact, all of the recent "reformulations" have been incredibly disappointing. Not sure if we can depend on CS for our FO's anymore.
This is my personal favorite scent and one of my very best sellers. It is a high-end scent that feels grounding, rich and unisex. I have not found anyone who does not enjoy this scent. If you're thinking about it, just get it.
This used to be a best seller for us. It was so refreshing and not too overpowering. However, our last 3 orders of this scent have been really disappointing. All of a sudden, there is no hot or cold throw. We can barely smell any fragrance at all, to the point we cannot sell this anymore. It has even impacted some of our business relationships because there is just no fragrance.
We're curious if we just received a few bad batches or if this recipe has changed?
Not sure how else to describe it, other than it smells like a nice cologne!
Definitely love this one. Made a bar for my bf.
1oz FO to 16oz 464 soy wax
Cold throw is excellent. Hot throw is non existent. We will up the FO next batch
I’m new at this candle-making thing (I’m only doing it for myself and not to sell) but love this scent! I wasn’t sure exactly what it would smell like but I was hoping it would smell earthy and forest-y. It does and I would definitely buy it again. I found that the candles I made have good cold, but not hot, throw so maybe I need to add more oil in next time. I ended up having a little of this scent left over after I finished my candles and I’ve been using it in my diffuser...it smells amazing!
I make soy candles, this is one of my best sellers for both genders!
Hot and cold throw is amazing!! Totally recommended!!
So calming!!! I was worried when looking at the fragrances because everyone's sence of smell is different however this is overwhelmingly calming. Not floral at all! Earthy light and soothing. Smells like April in a forest right after a rain shower has soaked the trees and soil. You can't go wrong with this scent.
This is one of my best selling scents, it's so fresh and masculine. It reminds me of a good smelling man.
Strong. Fresh. Masculine. This scent is popular with almost everyone. One of my biggest sellers.
Just LOVE this scent!! I usse in CP goats milk soap with a green & white swirl. Always a great seller and one of my favorites!!!
I needed to order more but read the last reviews and decided to just get a sample size. It's a nice fragrance but I'm disappointed. It was very popular for me not sure if this will do as well...I will have to rename it if I use it.
I personally really enjoy this fragrance. It has a masculine and fresh scent that seems to work well in candles. However, I’ve asked for feedback on this one and everyone seems to dislike the fragrance. My partner asked me to take them outside so he wouldn’t have to smell them. Weirdly, I like them! I’ve concluded that this scent lacks mass appeal so I’ll probably won’t buy this again.
Love this. Very cool and calm and a great addition to the shop.
Really wonderful scent, it smells like the kind of cologne that you just want to be around, and you can use less than normal because it is rather strong. I REALLY Love how the soap stays pure white, almost no other scent stays white, almost all discolor over time. I found a 3 year old bar in storage and it was still paper white.
Not getting a strong hot throw. Using the same wick size, 444 Wax, and max fragrance load. There’s also a lack of fragrance dept in the new formulation. So disappointing since this was one of our best sellers.
There is a lack of depth in the base of this new version that is especially noticeable in the cold throw. We much prefer the old version. Top and middle notes seem to be the same, but this is much flatter and the sharpness of the top notes is lacking balance. Very sad to see the old one gone.
Very easy to fall in love with. Both cold and hot throws are strong. It also smells luxuriously
Love this scent. Masculine, woodsy scent that I love to use when making CP soaps. No acceleration, and the scent stays in the soaps. This is by far my favorite scent. LOVE IT. I keep coming back for more.
Love this sexy woodsy scent. Women go crazy for it. Making a new men’s line with this one. Flew off the shelves during a tester launch. Thank you!!!!
