I use this in a fun soap called Purple Cow. I often use it as a single scent as it is mild and often described as "fresh". It appeals to those who want a light, morning scent that isn't overwhelming.
It is definitely citrusy and peppery, but in an understated way. I can't imagine it as a standalone scent, but it adds depth to many of my concoctions. I like it a lot.
