Rating: I love woodsy or fresh scents and that includes this Fragrant oil. My neighbour took some as soon as I got the bottle because she thought it was fresh as well. (And she's a floral scent kind of person).
It makes your room smell fresh and fragrant without being overpowering. There are floral tones to it, but not overwhelming. This weekend I am making a two tone soap with this scent. Green (clear base) and Brown (Goats milk base) to demonstrate the combo scent, but using this scent throughout. Based on the diffusion scent and the bottle, this should smell amazing and fresh. Soap could be used by either Male or Female.
I've said this in several NDA reviews but you just can't beat the prices, customer service and delivery of the products from this web-site.

Rating: I wouldn't say this is a masculine scent at all. Smells kinda old ladyish, but it's still good. Very fruity with lots of floral. Makes a good spring/summer soap. Behaves well in CP soap, and a little goes a long way. Really wish NDA would put usage amounts for FOs and EOs in the description. I went with 0.7oz ppo, and to me, it seems strong.
Rating: Absolutely LOVE this scent! And so do my customers. I can't keep the bath bombs in stock. Makes a great Epsom soak as well as a bubble bath. One of my favorite scents to date!

Rating: I found this to be a nice scent but it did discolour my white to yellow in my CP soap the next day after cutting it.

Rating: Je considère cette fragrance comme unisexe, ça sent le vert, c'est frais. Dans le M&P, pas de problème. Pour le CP, je trouve qu'elle ne ressort pas tellement. Je vais en mettre plus la prochaine fois.

Rating: This is another great mild, unisex, fresh clean scent. Recommended!
By:Stephanie, Lethbridge, Alberta Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 25-Sep-2015
Rating: This is another mild, somewhat masculine scent that is very appealing. Not overly strong or descript but a nice, pleasant smell. Like!
By:Stephanie, Lethbridge, Alberta Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 25-Sep-2015
Rating: Very nice scent. Bought it to have a more masculine smelling soap, but don't limit it to calling it a men's soap, very appealing scent for both sexes. Did a small clay chunky swirl in my normal cp recipe and it seemed to behave very well. Sold all the bars before I could notice if it discolored after sitting for long periods.... would recommend trying this one for sure!
By:Vanessa, Manitouwadge, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 24-Jan-2011
Rating: Wow, Great men scent. I put it in M&P soap works great. My husband loves the scent. It's become one of his favourites. Will purchase again for sure.

Rating: Love this FO, works great in paraffin candles, not so much in soy candles. My customers absolutely love this scent!
Rating: I made a bright green cold process soap using this scent and my friends and family are having a hard time waiting until its cured lol. I really like that the scent is not overpowering - strong enough to be noticed but subtle enough to enjoy it.
By:Christy, Winnipeg, Manitoba Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 12-Jun-2014
Rating: Behaves well in CP soap, very strong scent, not my favorite and not a big seller either.
By:Lorna, Thunder Bay, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 04-Nov-2013
Rating: I had such high hopes for this one, but after many attempts to use it in soy candles, the fragrance is just to weak to come through. It does smell great though and would probably be a big hit in a product line for men.
Rating: I'm so glad I read some of the reviews and went for this, it's SO delish. A nice manly scent, I want to make my hubby a roll on fragrance oil/cologne because it's a sexy man smell.
By:Angie, West Kelowna, British Columbia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 22-Jan-2015
Rating: I was expecting a fresh, spa scent, however, it is a very complimenting scent for a man. Nice for after shaves and shave creams.
By:Julie, South Porcupine, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 20-Mar-2015
Rating: Worked perfectly in cp soap. I used charcoal and a purple colorant swirl, topped with bronze mica. A big seller in my mens soap line. I will definitely buy this fragrance again. Scent holds very well.
By:Deborah, Port Hardy, British Columbia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 07-Sep-2009
Rating: J'adore cette fragrance. C'est frais et délicat à la fois. Convient aux femmes comme aux hommes. Très apprécié de tous. Une odeur estivale qui reste sur la peau plusieurs heures. Que du bonheur!
Rating: Great unisex scent, very clean and fresh. A must have!
By:Kim, Greely, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 24-May-2014
Rating: Definitely a best seller. This scent seems to be unisex and is not overpowering at all. It is just a light fragrance that reminds me of walking in a forest in spring. You won't regret it.
By:Nasstassia, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 24-Feb-2014
Rating: They've replaced my bamboo grove scent by this one and I have to say that the difference is minimal. This is a top seller for man.. but I have noticed that many woman like it as well. Alot of people make the comment that it reminds them of Drakar Noir
By:Celena, Lasalle, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 28-Nov-2012
Rating: This has to be one of my favourites! I find women love this as much as men. Crisp tones of forest but not too much. Love it!
By:Selena, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 15-Oct-2012
Rating: I was looking for a more masculine scent to use in my CP soaps. This one is just perfect. I find it to be warm, outdoorsy, and slightly spicy. Yum! At .5 ppo the scent is not too strong, and it didn't accelerate trace. However, I did notice it darkened my soaps ever so slightly. I expect this will be a big hit with my customers.
Rating: I purchased Bamboo and teak FO last month for a new scent for my men's line and was excited to give out some samples of shaving balm and shaving butter infused with this refeshing scent. It was a hit and I have orders coming in for this product scent!!! thanks NDA for boosting my business!
Rating: I bought this scent to have a new "manly" scent and I have to say I love it!!
It is fresh and earthy and so I named my soap "Rain Forest"
Scent is sticking really well too...will keep this in my line.
Rating: I have a barber in town who uses my soap with Bamboo and Teak as well as the Bay Rum scent to do his shaves on customers and they have in turn requested to buy it so I get an order of mens soap. Yeah!!
Rating: I personally did not like this scent but that is my opinion. My husband did not like this at all. My brother in-laws thought it was weird smelling but could not explain it. Maybe it would be better mixed with another scent. I agree with the other reviewer that it is not really masculine smelling as I had hoped it would.

Rating: Smells really good out of the bottle & could definitely be interpreted as a masculine scent. Used it in CP soap @ .5% ppo. After 4 weeks cure found the scent completely changed & much more fruity, but also considerably weaker. Many scents get banged up in CP, so I'm going to try it in HP soap to see if it holds its character better because I would really like to offer this as one of the masculine scents in my line. I have already repurchased so I guess you could say I'm optomistic!
By:Terry, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 31-Oct-2008
Rating: This is a very complex scent. I can't see it being masculine though but I will not argue with the ladies here. They know better than me. To me it smells sweet and not as strong. I put 2 percent in a cream and still had a hard time smelling it. It does smell nice, I only have doubts about the sexy man smell. Try combining Lime/Bergamot and Bay Rum ; Now that is a manly smell.

Rating: Mmmm, smells like a hot man! LOL. Very nice masculine scent - smells like cologne. I am adding this one to my line for sure!
By:Ashley, Marathon, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 06-Jan-2009
Rating: Wonderful scent! good for men , very refresh.
Rating: I was lacking any masculine fragrances, so I got this one. It smells a lot like cologne (in a good way). Will make nice soaps for all the men in the family come Christmas time.
By:Crystal, Port Moody, British Columbia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Apr-2008
Rating: This has a slight floral smell, but is also a little spicy. I found it quite nice, a good masculine smell. Can be blended with Lavender to create a nice sweet balance.
Even the name makes it sound perfect for scenting male products!
