Rating: Love the way this FO smells. Has held up really well in CP soap. As noted by others, it does accelerate so be ready. It also discolors to dark brown so work that into your design. I made a 3 color swirl and colors without fragrance discolored as well but still worth using because it smells so good.
Rating: It smells like incense! I can't describe it any other way. If you're a fan of incense, then you'll really enjoy this FO. Used in coconut-soy wax!

Rating: I bought this for my soy candles totally out of curiosity knowing nothing how this smells like.
The smell is very bold. A mixture of floral and incense fragrance. Reminds me of the Chinese scented pouch we used to make as kids, also reminds me of an older Catholic cathedral. I find the smell quite pleasant but my wife cannot stand it saying it's very overpowering. So be aware as it is not for everyone. You might want to add less concentration into your wax than usual.
It also has a very dark brown color and will tint the color of the candle, if that is important to you.

Rating: Loved this scent for my soy wax candles!! Perfect for fall / Halloween. it reminds me of a crystal shoppe or incense!
However less is more as this scent is pretty strong, and it does discolor the wax so try using it with a dye!!

Rating: I really like this scent, however it heavily affects the colour of soy wax. It gives white wax a yellowish tone and even when I use dye, the colour is slightly off. If you don’t mind the colour change then this is a great FO.

Rating: Fresh deep strong trow! Just love this smell all year long what the ever season! One of my favorite fragrances BIG 5 stars +
Rating: This smells amazing! It traced quickly and heated up quickly so I ended up with a crack but nothing drastic. I used Brazilian red clay which kept a beautiful color without getting darker.
Definitely use again

Rating: Cannot rate this high enough! A haunting, erotic scent. Customers find it is also soothing on the skin. My top seller. In CP it's a speedy one! Add, and be prepared to mold ASAP. My max batch size is 7 lbs. Discolours to almost black but looks stunning with gold stamp.

Rating: Beautiful rendition of DB. Does accelerate but nothing you can't manage. Love this so much! Goes almost black but a gold stamp makes it regal. A top seller of min.

Rating: Amber, Cedarwood, Sandalwood, and Patchouli is what I smell when I opened my bottle. Very woodsy and strong. As my CP soap cures, I smell Jasmine, and a touch of Vanilla with a strong peppery juniper/vertiver, myrrh, and especially chamomile scent. It's very rich, smokey incense, and, yes, there is that mild powdery quality that is not offensive - might be the vanilla-y part. Do not use if you are looking for light and airy. This fragrance is hardcore strong, sensual, warm and exotic. Didn't think I would like it.. I don't - I love it!

Rating: I love this fragrance , I use it in soap and everyone likes it .
Rating: I'm wondering if each bottle is totally different....I can't even smell the jasmine or patchouli other customers mention as being strong over the baby powder smell with this one. Went out on a limb to try it based on some negative (and other positive) reviews and it just wasn't for me. Haven't tried it in any products as I can't even stand the smell sniffing it from the bottle. Not sure what I will be doing with it. Oh well, you win some and you lose some...
Rating: This is by far my favourite Dragon's Blood fragrance. My customers love it and I'm having trouble keeping enough soap made to supply the demand. The high vanillin content does cause my soap to discolour but I actually like the effect with the deep green and red that I use.
Rating: This is an awesome blend, but one word of caution when using to diffuse or in a spray. LESS is definitely more. I had to clean my diffuser 4 times before the lingering notes of Jasmine were gone and not affecting other oils. It is a rich warm blend of all things exotic. My neighbor needed to steal a bottle from me she loved it so much. Good thing I had ordered two at the time!
Heavy notes of incense in this type of blended fragrant oil. Not for the faint of heart or those looking for a light and airy fragrance. This is a heavily scent laden fragrant oil.
By:S. Mic, Waterloo, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 25-Aug-2016
Rating: I bought this because I have a Dragon's Blood incense which I adore, and I wasn't disappointed. Used it in a whipped rebatch of my bastille recipe, and it smells amazing! Can't wait to try a CP soap with it, and maybe a lotion. NB- I have this curing beside an Anise fisherman's soap, and when I walk by I swear I get a whiff of bubblegum! Definitely going to experiment a bit with blending the two.
Rating: I find this dragon's blood quite pungent, the jasmine is quite strong out of the bottle but I do smell all the other scents. It did accelerate trace very quickly and discoloured the batter to a tomatoe ketchup colour which took me back, I was expecting dark brown. We'll see tomorrow what the final product looks like when I unmold my soap and in a few days once the scent mellows out. It is rather strong. Right now, not my favourite but not bad either.
Rating: I used this for CP @ 4%. I probably could have used 3 and it would have been fine. Strong scent. Another reviewer said this scent reminded them of their grandma and I agree but in a good way. It's much more musky and powdery that I had anticipated but I enjoy the smell. Interested to see what notes will remain after it cures a few more weeks.
Rating: I wasn't sure what to think of this scent OOB, so I made a small batch of soap - had this bright idea that I would swirl black and red - however this does discolour (dark brown) so be sure to take that into account when planning your soap design.
I wasn't sure what I thought of it - But I have sold out every time I've made it...and I always get requests for more of it - so I keep making it, and customers do like it. I find it a little powdery but it does have an intriguing smell...

Rating: I didn't understand what to do with this scent.. so I added cucumber FO to it in my CP soaps and it turned out great. But this on it's own, wasn't great. I don't think it has a woody smell at all, more like a cheap musk. Did not accelerate trace in CP soaps
By:Sarah, Halifax, Nova Scotia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 26-Dec-2013
Rating: I love this scent. It is strong and holds up well over time. It does discolour a bit in my bath bombs, but nothing over the top. I find most of my customers either love it or don't without much middle ground. I find it strong, sultry and spicy. Honestly, it makes me think of exotic places lit by candlelight. Definitely on the Romantic and sexy side.

Rating: This was a very disappointing scent. It smells like the elderly, powder and soap. When I had my brother smell this he immediately told me that this smells like someone's grandmother. I felt very let down. I wouldn't recommend it.
By:Dayisel, Ottawa, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 05-Jun-2010
Rating: I love this scent! smelt it once and was inlove it is amazing in my bath bombs and shower steamers cant seem to ever keep in in stock!
Rating: LOVE this scent and I swoon when I sniff the bottle. What other reviewers find displeasing is just what I enjoy in this heavy, dark, and darkly powder-sweet fragrance. It IS the gorgeous scent of Catholic incense and I'm so glad I found it here.
By:Maryann, Nanoose Bay, British Columbia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 15-Aug-2013
Rating: What a wonderful Dragon's Blood. Amazing in CP soap. Does discolor like most Dragon's blood and does accelerate. Just soap coal and work fast and you will be fine.
Rating: This scent is strong and wonderful. Whenever I use it in bath bombs and massage melts, I sell out at my next market. Big bottle for sure next time!!

Rating: I saw a few low reviews here, but I decided to give this product a shot anyway. I should have listened, because I did not like this scent at all. I've tried other Dragon's blood, and normally they have a more strong patchouli/sandalwood mix, but this Dragon's Blood was extremely powdery and soft. Not really what I wanted. I guess I should have known better from the "powder" description.
By:Dina, Welland, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 10-Jan-2012
Rating: This scent is hypnotic. I put sandalwood in it to exfoliate and it is fantastic. It sets quickly, so you have to work fast.
Rating: This is a wonderful fragrance. It is hard to compare to other scents, but it is full and delightful.

Rating: Just soaped a new batch with Dragons Blood. I love this smell and it is holding up well in cp soap. It is hard to pinpoint the exact notes in this scent and that is part of the appeal. This just could be my new favorite fragrance.
By:Chris, Leduc, Alberta
Date: Loyal Customer Since: 01-Jan-2010
Rating: This is a very strong smell and darkens. I have heard about this scent a lot which is the reason why I bought it. I have to honestly say that I did not like it. It smells like Catholic or Buddhist worship places. The smell might inspire your spiritual side but I can't see it being used in a lotion or a soap. However; a friend of mine smelt it and said this was the best and strongest dragon's blood she has ever smelt. Please keep in mind that the above noted is my personal and subjective opinion.
By:Jean-Jacques, Surrey, British Columbia

Rating: Fabulous Dragonsblood fragrance. Discolours to quite dark brown in CP soap. Accelerates trace as well. But it smells so fabulous it's worth the extra bit of work to get it in the moulds quickly.
