I was wanting a unique holiday scent in CP soap, and followed the recommendation to combine this 50/50 with the Myrrh FO, and I'm so glad I did! It's such a warm, pleasant smell that appeals to both men and women. The freshly cut soap is yellowish in color (I didn't add any dyes). The FOs accelerated the soap as I was mixing, and it became pudding-like pretty quickly. Scent is worth the effort!
