It has a good aroma, although I expected a denser and thicker oil. All Galbanum I have had in the past has had the consistency of Patchouli if not even more so. Perhaps this is a different blend or extraction than what I used too.
I use this with and Frankincense and a couple of other ingredients in my wrinkle oil. It is a wonderful oil!
