Rating: You can walk in a forest or take this scent every where with you, even when you are indoors. My preferences lean towards the woodsy and earthy scents, so this appeals to me tremendously. I wouldn't say any one scent is dominant in this blend but the results are a mild, scent of walking in the woods after the rain. I feel soothed and relaxed with it and think it doesn't need to be blended with anything else.
This can be used in a variety of products from household cleaning, diffusing or using in your craft hobbies like soap making. The scent can be used by both male and female.
It appeals the the "Hippy Chick" in me.

Rating: Good scent, reminds me of eucalyptus EO a lot. I did men products with this FO, I added some lemon. I use it in my diffuser too, smells good!

Rating: Just received this in my latest supply parcel and I'm so happy with the scent! It's has a woodsy scent but it isn't overpowering, seems like a perfect blend and glad to see in the reviews that it works well in CP soap with no discolouration or issues.
I loved the suggestions to mix with Sleigh Ride FO for Christmas and I also might try mixing it with a smoky FO I have that is called Campfire!!
By:Rose, Haileybury, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 15-Mar-2014
Rating: I absolutely love this scent! it has a very strong pine smell, but once in the candle it mellows out slightly. When burnt, the candles smell amazing! Another favourite by my customers!

Rating: Not a fan of this. It is quite strong, and overpowering Not at all what I expected. For me it works and smells better if I mix it with a citrus of some sort.

Rating: At first sniff it seems quite mellow with all the scents present, then the pine kind of sneaks up and overpowers all of them! Not quite sure what to make of this one. It does smell fresh and woodsy (in a piney kind of way).....not my favourite but I'm sure may work out well at Christmas time though!!
Rating: Well then, pretty sure I just ruined 4 LBS of lovely soap....UHG!
Woodlands themes currently smells like a bad spruce car freshener and I only scented at .05%
Yuk! I will hold out a while longer and hope that it fades but as of now I'm very disappointed by it.
It's very chemically, I'm not sure it would even make a good candle.
An expensive mistake :(

Rating: This is the perfect the scent for a soy an candle. Very crisp scent at 9% fragrance to wax ratio.
Rating: I have been using this scent for as long as I can remember! One of my faves chosen by clients for their men. Love love love love it.
By:Heather, Abbotsford, British Columbia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 05-Mar-2008
Rating: I have purchased this twice now. The first time it smelled great, like a walk in the woods. Did well in soy wax and cp soap. So the next purchase was a bigger bottle, the 1000ml......and it did not smell anything like the first bottle, it smelled chemical and kind of peppery.....what a surprise. I tried some candles with it but I think this is one I will be throwing out. I was very disappointed. Unfortunately this is one I will not buy again.
By:Deborah, Port Hardy, British Columbia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 07-Sep-2009
Rating: Just tried this in soy candles. Nice, deep scent, good scent throw. Definitely smell the balsam and spicy notes,
By:Mary, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 02-Sep-2014
Rating: Just got my first bottle of Woodland Themes. Yes, all the notes are there, woodsy, musk, moss, pine, but it is just a bit too sweet for me. I cut it with Ginger Grass EO to add a sharper note before adding to M&P soap base. I catch a faint pine, a sharp lemony note and subdued moss and musk in the final product- quite pleasing, not overpowering, unisex.
By:Elizabeth, Holland Landing, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 27-Jan-2006
Rating: its odd how no one perceived the scents the same way.. I have to disagree with the previous review.. this one is a keeper!
By:Celena, Lasalle, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 28-Nov-2012
Rating: I used this in CP soap at 0.7oz per pound of oil as per the tech support's suggestion (first time I've used New Directions FOs). From the bottle it smells really good, manly, woodsy, musky. I just cut the soap this morning and it smells like those pine tree air fresheners you find at truck stops. I sure hope this mellows out otherwise I don't know who would want to buy this soap.... :(

Rating: Just like the name ....very woodsy smell. I love it for a man scent. I put it in our CP shaving bar. Its that scent that you get a whiff of when standing in close proximity.....like in an elevator and you think.....wow you smell good to yourself.
By:Andrea, Fort Erie, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 16-Aug-2013
Rating: Wow, very nice smell. I used it for cp soap and it worked great, no acceleration nor discoloration. My husband and my father love it.
Rating: It's just what I was looking for to evoke the coastal woods here. It's lovely as a closet refresher, which is what I'm using it for. Wait! I spritzed the dogs with it too and THAT was a big improvement. It is fresh and piney without being too harsh. Resin-y without smelling like Pine-Sol. There is just enough balsam and cedar to keep it soft and green. Nice and natural.
By:Maryann, Nanoose Bay, British Columbia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 15-Aug-2013
Rating: I really like this scent. Its very woodsy and fresh. Perfect winter scent!
By:Heather, Oshawa, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 03-Apr-2013
Rating: I like the warm, sweetly woody scent. It's actually fairly complex and deep for this place. The reason of 4 stars is that I found this fragrance very thin. It smells nothing in soy candle (I used 10%, though). But, still, nice wintery fragrance!
By:Rika, Montreal, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 01-Aug-2009
Rating: Nice fragrance in cp. It smells like a winter night in front of a wood fire, conforting, warm and earthy. I want to try blending this with poinsetia or sleigh ride, i think they would complement eschother to. Ake it like awalk in winter woods. It was easy to work with and no discoloration.
By:Edith, Mirabel, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 22-Sep-2007
Rating: This scent reminds me of a fragrance I use to get called "Woods & Spices." Excellent for fall and especially for Christmas. Very nice hot and cold throw in 100% soy wax.
Rating: A very nice fragrance. Woodsy, balsam type scent. Like a walk in the forest.
By:Marie, Oakville, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 30-Jun-2012
Rating: Evergreen, Eucalyptus yet kinda fruity... It's nice can't wait to try it in MP
By:Christine, Limoges, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 04-Apr-2012

Rating: This is awesome ..it uplifts you yet ground you at the same time A++
By:Phyllis, Halifax County, Nova Scotia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 31-Jul-2011
Rating: This is a pleasant scent. To me it has a sweet-tobacco-moss-sandalwood-woody-resin-waxy-incense cast to it. It's unfamiliar and struck me as something I'd like to smell on a man's leather coat. (!) I'm not sure how I'd use it on its own; I've been adding it to EO combinations to round them out.
By:Stella, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 04-Apr-2011
Rating: This FO is excellent... the fragrance can be used seasonally such as at Christmas, or all year for an 'outdoors' indoors type of fragrance for CP soap. It just smells 'green' :)
Rating: Love the earthy woodsy scent, should work great in lotions.. not great in sea salt soap though :( Maybe it it was cut down. Would definately order again.
By:Monica, Red Deer, Alberta

Rating: This is a very manly smell... I have used it in a shaving cream and made my wife smell it. She was amazed and said she never smelled anything like it. She kept asking me to smell it all day. You need very little.. Too much of this oil and the smell becomes too strong..... Buy it you will love it.
By:Jean-Jacques, Surrey, British Columbia
Date: Loyal Customer Since: 29-Dec-2009
Rating: This is one of my favorites, I added it to my soy candles and it worked very well!
Rating: Good for both sexes, but men are definitely drawn to this earthy green scent. Reminds you of a cabin in the woods, its a rich yet not overpowering natural scent. Will order again!
By:Nicole, Windsor, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 05-May-2008
Rating: Just perfect in everyway so spot on! A gorgeous manly scent but a woman could certainly use this too. Not over-powering & really better than I expected. And I have high standards!
By:Susanne, Newmarket, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 15-Jul-2007
Rating: Gorgeous unisex scent. One of my favorites!!
By:Paula, Lower Sackville, Nova Scotia

Rating: I can see why people would say its a mans scent, but i just love it!!! It smells of pine....but in a sweeter way. Its my "scent of the season"!!!
By:Amanda, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 19-Jun-2007
Rating: A nice forest-y scent.. Great for men..
By:Lisanne, St. Catharines, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Mar-2007
Rating: This one isn't my favourite, it's definitely a man's scent imo. Still a great buy for the men's line and a great price too!
