Rating: An interesting scent that isn't as strong as most other FOs. Doesn't really smell like honey, but does have enough similarities. Other reviewers expressed disappointment at the lack of 'sweetness' but personally, I'm VERY glad it's missing. Most 'sweet' notes would ruin this I'm afraid. It's actually difficult to find FOs that aren't all cloyingly sweet! Because I thought it didn't really smell close enough to honey when I first got it I wasn't sure I'd use it for anything, but after using an OMH from another company and being completely disappointed, I did use this as the anchor for my own OMH FO blend, and I'm MUCH happier now! Don't know how it'd hold up as a straight-up 'honey', but it sure works great to blend with!

Rating: Accurate honey scent, used in cp soap, performed perfectly and will buy again.
Rating: This fragrance oil is one of the best true scent fragrance oils I have ever found. It truly smells like Honey. I use it in CP soap and it behaves perfectly. I have never had a problem with acceleration or ricing. The fragrance does discolor a little to a lite tan. This is defiantly my go to for a honey scent!!
Rating: I am not a honey fan at all and tend to shy away from the scent. That said, I have bought a few on occasion from some of the big name suppliers and just didn't like them. That said, this one did remind me of honey as soon as I opened the bottle. I think cut with the Bitter Almond scent it will make one awesome FO! And of course, the price is beyond AMAZING! THANKS, NDA!

Rating: Not really quite the sweet Honey scent that I was looking for in this fragrance oil from NDA. Smelling it straight from the bottle it smells like Honey in a way however, there is something in it that burns the nose when I smell it. It has a Vinegar tone it it & I can smell the Vinegar tone in my soap that I used it for if I smell up close.
I will be shopping for a better Honey Fragrance oil elsewhere for my soap making.

Rating: Well, it smells like honey all right! I dropped the bottle while unpacking onto a nice, hard ceramic kitchen floor. It hit just right and shattered. My kitchen now smells overwhelmingly of honey. So do my socks... On the upside, I can safely review that this oil is a wonderfully accurate representation of honey with absolutely no chemical smell even at extremely, unintentionally high concentrations.
Rating: This is an excellent rich and "dirty" honey scent, with a civit aspect that mimics certain late summer honey varieties very well.

Rating: This smells just like sticking your nose in a honey jar. i used it with the bitter almond in a CP soap and they are my favorite of all my soaps. This did not make the soap seize or discolor as far as I could tell but I did use a golden yellow coloring on this CP soap.

Rating: I have tried several "honey" scented FOs and this is the closest match I have found. Not perfect but pretty darn good. Smells great in my candles and especially in blends with fruit FOs! Looking forward to trying the Honeycomb FO next!
Rating: Simply the Best !!!!! My bees will be jealous.

Rating: Quite a lot of mixed reviews on this one! I've tried several honey fragrances from other suppliers and this one is hands-down the best I've found so far. It's a thick, sweet scent, but I don't find it candy-ish or powdery. I do find it similar to the scent of Burt's Bees honey lip balm, and now I kinda wish NDA had a honey flavor oil, hint hint :) I got this yesterday and blended it with a bit of Neroli fragrance for an attempt at orange blossom honey -- I've got some of the real deal to compare it to, and it doesn't fare too badly!
Rating: Agreed. Smells nothing like Honey. Has a powdery smell in the background and my husband said it smelled like grapes! Grapes! Lol. Disappointed with this one. Honey Nut smells better.

Rating: Wow! A little of this stuff goes a long way. I love the warming sensation I get when I smell this oil and the price is amazing!!

Rating: It smells more like candy than a true honey scent. It's not bad it just isn't what I was expecting.
By:Sophia, San Rafael, California

Rating: This is an awesome honey FO with no chemical scent as a reviewer below mentioned. It manages to capture the essence of the honey scent without being overly saccharine. This FO blends well with many other scents as well which is a major plus.
Rating: Since years, I try to find "the" honey f.o. I ordered a sample and ... ordered more immediately. This one is very well done. No chemical scent. It has a bit of brown sugar smell, but the honey smell is very good. I think of mixing it too with floral f.o. A pure marvel.

Rating: I was really happy with this fragrance when I received it. Being a FO I expected it to be over powering and synthetic smelling., but it's actually nice and light. A great honey scent.
By:Becky, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Love the smell of this FO. I find that it smells like a very sweet and sort of candy-like honey. Also, hints of a buttercream scent in this FO.
By:Ashley, Marathon, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: As for the other reviewers, this was a real dissapointment, especially after having smelled and been trained with other honey accords from Givaudan or Firmenich. It is sweet, it is pleasant, it is appealing, it is clean, but... in the end it is not honey at all. Too bad, although I am sure it will mix well and be appealing...
Rating: I was hoping this would smell something like Burt's Bees products or like actual honey. Instead it smells just like Butter Rum Life Savers! It smells so incredibly yummy I want to eat it, bottle and all! So if you like fragrances that smell like candy you will adore this. However, I don't care much for fragrances that remind me of food. This one will require some creativity on my part!

Rating: I was so excited to get this oil, and I have to say that I was disappointed. I got it along with about 15 others, all of which were fabulous, but this one, in my opinion, does not ring true to the sweet honey scent that I was so excited to receive. I am a big fan of your fragrant oils as a whole, but I hope that you plan to reformulate this one. When you do, please contact me.
