Blooms in Wax--Great Blender!
A friend of mine is seemingly in love with this fragrance, so when I saw that SS carried it I decided to try it. I am happy that I did. Guilty is a pleasant masculine-leaning cologne fragrance that should have a general appeal to most people. It is a warm cologne fragrance in the same way that Obsession Cologne is, only without the ferret-y, musky note, and with the addition of a citrus note. While it has an element of citrus, it is not an obnoxious alcohol and lemon aroma. So you don't have to worry that it will smell like one of those little 'wet-naps' that you wipe your fingers with after eating Kentucky Fried Chicken. It has a strong CT in soy wax, and a good HT at 12% concentration, and I use CD14 wicks. I ran a test candle using this fragrance by itself, and another test candle blending it 2:1 with Cilantro Lime. I was pleased with both results. This is a fragrance that blooms in the wax, so if you try to gauge what it will smell like based on OOB impressions you will not get an accurate read. I found that when I blended this with the Cilantro Lime, I got a neat scent that reminded me of a Jo Malone type. I like that the underpinning of this fragrance are universal enough that it lends itself to creating some intriguing fragrance blends. Yes, I can recommend this one.
