    Very gloopy

    The oil was so sticky I could not pour it, tried to stick in a knife and get it out but I ended up wasting a lot of oil, smells very nice though

    Sweet and syrupy, benzoin immediately reminds me of "Spekulaas" cookies. There's a cinnamon-sugar undertone, which reminds me of pancakes, and an overpriced "stroopwaffel" I had once in Schiphol Airport.
