Rating: This is a medium amber colored oil that has many appealing characteristics. The description provided by NDA includes a true breakdown of the scents that combine to make up this fragrance: amber (light scent present), patchouli and rose (more noticeable in this scent) and sandalwood (light scent that's present) blends with nuances of jasmine and citrus (both of these become slightly more noticeable within about five minutes of letting the oil breathe, or what I've heard called its burn down effect). This fragrance is complex, as it doesn't take on any single scent from which it's been made. For me, I keep getting the scent impression of standing in front of a well stocked incense display area at a metaphysical shop. It's a complex, slightly sweet, slightly spicy scent and I get the impression that is more closely connected to a deep grounding effect, yet over time starts to move away from a solid earth grounding scent to that of an air effect scent. NDA used the term "mysterious" in its description and I would agree. While the fragrance lightens a bit after fifteen to twenty minutes of burn down, the heavier earth tones do begin to diminish, as more of the sweet undertones become more pronounced. By itself, as I have not combined it with another fragrance oil or added any essential oils to enhance it yet, I would agree with other reviews that say it could be a unisex fragrance. On a male, more mysterious, however I could see it more clearly on a female as a seductive, earthy, sultry fragrance. The subtle spice undertones tend to diminish with its burn down effect. This oil's base notes of vanilla and powder do not overpower it at all, as compared to the Dragon's Blood Fragrance Oil sold by an online only soap company that specializes in essential and fragrance oils. This oil may not be for everyone, as it does conjure up memories of visits to certain witchy/metaphysical stores. If one is looking for a scent that is exactly the same as that of ground dragon's blood smoking in an incense blend, this is not exactly it. However, I'm giving it five stars because it is as described by NDA and it is a nice exotic fragrance to have on hand. It's enjoyable.
Rating: Daring! This oil has an exotic, magical, mystical energy about it. I mix several drops with vanilla shea butter, rub it on my feet before I go out and I not only feel energized, but people seem to be more attracted in their conversations, and 9 out of 10 times make comments about how I smell. I've even had people walk up and smell me. Not exactly the goal, but I love the energy! :) It has a soft, sweet, light, heavy scent of roses and amber - as best as I can describe.

Rating: Sold well in a small test batch. Have had customers ask for it. Discolors VERY dark brown in CP soap, I might with-hold fragrance from a small portion of batch next time to attempt swirls, don't know if it will bleed yet. Love the interesting fragrance.
Rating: It is such a sensual scent. It is a big hit with men and women. It does turn a dark chocolate brown in GM CP but doesn't cause any other problems. A VERY pretty bar. I use 1 oz. per lb of oil in all of my shampoo bars. People like the way it stays with their hair.
By:Cindy, Vesper, Wisconsin Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 2013
Rating: I love this scent! I never smelled it before a fellow lotion-making friend introduced me to it a few weeks ago. It blends so nicely with sensual amber and other spicy oils.
Rating: Love this scent!! Reminds me of Venice Beach, CA. UNISEX for sure. Turns my soap a cappuccino color, perfect for this scent. Very HIPPY, smoke shop scent. Carries well in my hemp lotion.
By:Laura, Franklin, North CarolinaDate: Loyal Customer Since: 2011
Rating: My first impression of this FO was a little mixed, but it grew on me very quickly. It is a strong, unique, oriental and "new age" sort of scent. My simplest summation of it is "incense with cinnamon on top" but it is actually more complex, with some fruity sweetness, warm musk, and ...parchment, I guess. It is cool, heavy, and dark, but in a magical, celebratory way. very yin. I'd say this is on the feminine side of gender-neutral, but very close to unisex. it is more "feminine" than "masculine" but I do not think it smells girly or femme.
By:Nick, Studio City, California Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 2012
Rating: This scent is amazing! It could be used for men or women. Reminds me of a hippy drizzled with sweetness. It is very strong and the scent sticks with CP soap well. This scent will discolor CP soap to a dark brown. After a few weeks of curing I have black spots in my CP soap. It looks kinda cool. I used 1oz/ 1lb but next time I will probably use half that amount. I did not have a problem with the scent seizing up my CP soap but I did add a couple extra oz of water just in case, after reading a review that claimed it seized CP soap.

Rating: Sweet, musky, and earthy. I love this scent in my MP soap, but I can't wait to use it in candles or a diffuser.
By:Holly, Glendale, Arizona Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 2008
Rating: All I have to say is OMG!! Dragon's blood is not only a favorite for me, but a huge favorite for everyone who stops by my table at any given craft show. It is such a rich, bold fragrance loved by both men and women. I use it in MP, HP, & CP soap, soy candles and lotion, I always sell out.
By:Lisa, Pellston, Michigan Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 2008
Rating: Very strong and musky scent.....with hints of fruit too. It keeps very well in melt and pour soaps. Also used in soy candles and the scent is warm, exotic, and very unique......
By:Clara, Columbia, Maryland Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 2008
Rating: This scent is more female than male. i wanted it for a male soap but my guy dislike it for the scent, was too girly he said. It will work for younger kids. Right now I'm using it with another scent to get it to be stronger. it will discolor the Mp and soap makes the colors become darker. Yet the scent holds well as the bar melts down.
By:Teresa, Russellville, Arkansas Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 2011
Rating: This scent is very feminine but also strong. It's an oriental style that holds up very well in products. I find that it actually smells much better in lotion than it does on its own, and it leaves behind a heavenly smell on my bathrobe!
By:Lauretta, San Diego, California Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 2010
Rating: Very sensual scent, one of my favorites from my past order. Dont judge this one by sniffing straight from the bottle! This is a very strong product undiluted, and is more pleasing when diluted down, but a wonderful scent.
By:Tdawn, Berea, Kentucky Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 2011
Rating: Very different and very pleasing. It's an Old World type of scent that has a mysterious aspect to it. Good for unisex applications.
By:David, Plaistow, New Hampshire Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 2008
Rating: This is a truly unique scent which i enjoyed immensely. A little of this stuff goes a long way. A definite must if you're looking for something exotic and unusual.
By:Anthony, Sparta, Tennessee Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 2010
Rating: Absolutely love this in cp soap and soy candles!! It turned the soy candle a soft yellow and the scent has an excellent throw....love it!!!
Rating: We have tried everything to sweeten the air in our animal-friendly home - with little success - until we started burning Dragon's Blood in our aromatherapy pots. It is brilliant - delicious, powerful and exotic!
By:Kat, Brooklyn, New YorkDate: Loyal Customer Since: 2010
Rating: interesting lovely especially when blended with other oils
By:Ruth, Wildorado, Texas Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 2010
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.
Rating: I ordered this oil and I was really excited about the reviews of it. I had never smelled dragons blood before so I was going to give it a try. However when I smelled the bottle it was a very strong scent and I did not like it. I will try it in a small batch of MP and see if I change my mind. Maybe the scent will grow on me when it is not so strong from the bottle.
Rating: A gorgeous, earthy-sweet scent that pleases the hip and the hippie crowds, allike. Well done, NDA!
By:Marith, Berea, West Virginia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 2007
Rating: This one is a winner! I didn't know what to expect, but the description actually covers it pretty well. I actually smell a hint of anise and mint, too. It has been the favorite so far, for men and women alike.
By:Terri, Atlanta, Georgia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 2009
Rating: This is one fragrance that I keep on the shelves. Makes an excellent soap and a fragrance that is just lovable!
By:Samatha, Lompoc, California Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 2009
Rating: Very deep, and earthy scent that's not overpowering. I love that it discolors soap to a rich rusty brown--which is perfect considering the name of the fragrance. I've never used dragons blood before, so I was quite pleased when I received this.
By:Karina, Richmond Hill, New York Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 2007
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.
