Rating: Like a lot of other people have noted, it's not the traditional bay rum scent. I find it more fresh and green-smelling than traditional bay rum, which I am familiar with. It's not bad, but one of the notes does have a bit of that overwhelming-scent quality... like when you've been smelling coriander for too long.... It's never been a huge hit for me, sales-wise.

Rating: The rum scent is quite subtle. Smells sweet and spicy, with hints of vanilla.

Rating: Not even remotely like Bay Rum. Will keep buying the expensive version :(
By:Jacqueline, Shelburne, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 14-Nov-2009
Rating: I was really disappointed with this scent. I have used Bay rum FO before and this does not smell the same at all. It has a pumpkin spice sort of smell. I usually love NDA's scents but will not be buying this one again.
Rating: Very nice, clean, mild gender neutral scent. It doesn't smell spicy or rum-ish to me though.

Rating: Doesn't smell like Rum to me at all, but it is a nice, mild somewhat masculine scent. Like!

Rating: I fully agree with the earlier review by Stuart. I bought a Bay Rum fragrance out of the US and was really hoping this one would be the same, but it definitely wasn't. Didn't have the depth at all that I was looking for. Not unpleasant, but certainly not a true Bay Rum

Rating: It is a very nice, clean scent. However, I was hoping for more of a "rum" scent to come through. This works quite well for any products being made for a male

Rating: Smells great in my beer CP soap that is topped with a white layer scented with lemon.
By:Kim, Greely, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 24-Jun-2014
Rating: New to soap making and this is my first "Bay Rum" scent. I like it. It smells very clean, almost like the cleaning isle at the department store. Not very strong scent in comparison to other fragrance oils I've tried.

Rating: This is one of my favorite scents which I add to my beer and hop soap and I find men love it..
Rating: Nice scent but it's not a true Bay Rum scent.
By:Carrie-Ann, Greely, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 31-Mar-2013
Rating: Smells great...there's only one problem; it is not really a traditional bay rum.
Upon reading the list of notes, and smelling it myself, there seems to be no "bay" in it at all.
The picture there is more apt - it smells sweet, almost like cola. It's quite strong, but smells good diluted.
If you're looking for a traditional Bay Rum, though, you'll have to look elsewhere.
Rating: When I first got this and smelled in it the bottle I didn't really like it, then I was making little sample scent M&P Soaps and used this one and Whoa! Really different outside of the bottle, nice and masculine and spicy. Great Scent!
By:Christine, Limoges, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 04-Apr-2012
Rating: I don't find this strong at all - quite the opposite. Can hardly smell it in the bottle.
I'm making CP soap and using this one at close to 1 oz. per pound of oils - hope I won't regret it.
Rating: I thought I was going to love this one, especially with all the good reviews. It's a bit of an upside the head whacker! It's quite strong in the bottle and so far in my curing cold process soap. I'm hoping it mellows a bit. I like my scents a little more subtle than this so will use at half the amount next time.

Rating: A barber friend uses this scent as well as the Bamboo and Teak scent on his customers and they love it.. Using those scents can make men customers for themselves in a handmade soap business..
Rating: I recently discovered this fragrance and it has become a favourite of mine. It has a nice balance of spicy & warm without being overpowering. If you are looking for a clean, spicy masculine scent this is definitely it
Rating: Mixed this one with instant coffee in an M&P white base and the scent is great!
By:June, Vulcan, Alberta Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 27-Nov-2008
Rating: This is a great classic male scent. Smells strong staight out of the bottle, but in MP soap it smoothed out wonderfully.
By:Carolyn, Montreal, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 23-Feb-2007
Rating: Very masculine scent...nice and strong in m&p soap.
