I was searching for a wax that would give me the best scent throw there is, so I thought I'd give this a shot. I was a little leery after reading the reviews about how messy it was to work with. Maybe I was prepared for the worst, but it's really not that bad. Yeah - it's sticky. I use a regular ice cream scoop to scoop it out. You have to pry it off the scoop w/ a finger and then wipe off the excess to get it all - but it's pretty manageable. I don't equate it to peanut butter of crisco. It's not that creamy. It's firmer than that, but definitely likes to hang on to whatever it touches. I'm still trying to decide if it's worth the hassle compared to the parasoy blend, which I'm finding has a pretty hefty scent throw as well. The first few jars I've done had a couple tiny wet spots, but no big deal. It really takes dye and gets some intense color, which is nice. It doesn't have that nice, vanilla creamy look soy does when just poured w/out any dye, but - it's so smooth. I'm having issues w/ tunneling, but that's a matter of the wick, not the wax (and unfortunately the wick recommendations so far are 0 for 2 - so on to more experimentation). I'm just a few months in to candle making so only have exposure so far to 3 different types of wax (soy, parasoy & this), but I was pleasantly surprised that working w/ this wax really isn't the headache I thought it would be.
