It's a little more like vanilla extract. Out of the bottle, it did not smell so great- kind of plastic-y. After a 4 week cure though, it smells nice, hasn't discolored, and is holding it's own in the blend (I blended with peppermint EO).

I hardly know where to begin with FOs. I just started branching out from EOs a few months ago, and after a rocky start, I'm totally hooked. I want to gather some random scents for a well-rounded selection, so I have something interesting for every nose. Something from every category, so fruity, spicy, earthy, salty, etc.
Millie, I am the same way- I just branched from EOs and was primarily looking for FOs that could replace more expensive EOs in blends. And...now I'm an addict.

The True Rose, Jasmine, Orange Blossom, & Sandalwood are pretty close dupes for their EO counterparts.

Sage, Sweetgrass and Cedar is my very favorite, but with shipping I am looking at $67 per lb and simply refuse to pay that much, so I purchase a couple of bars from a vendor friend when we are at the same market.

I'll give you my two cents on the ones I've used. But remember this is my likes and dislikes, so take it for what it's worth. Sweet Yellow Pear is indeed just that. Pear for sure, but it was waaay too sweet for me. More like an over ripe pear, and I was wanting something more crisp. I didn't like Osmanthus at all. Grapefruit Ginger is nice, and even though I love ginger I think I preferred a straight up grapefruit. Others liked it better than plain grapefruit though. Cucumber is a good, clean cucumber. I blended it with SC Green Tea (which I also like and blend with Ginger Essence). I haven't tried Ocean Shoreline, but Karen's Ocean Rain was really nice. I only used it when I was doing M&P, and I think I remember reading that it really accelerates in CP - as do many ocean/rain fragrances. If you like to blend scents, Heather is a good blender. It is strong, so doesn't take much, but is a very fresh, airy kind of floral scent. I would use it to brighten up a heavy, perfumey fragrance. All I remember about Egyptian Musk is that it was very strong. I think it was fine, but I didn't ever order more.

I second Ginger Essence and True Rose.
You might like their Rosemary Mint EO blend. Years ago they had a few EO blends -- I tried them all and one called Bladderwrack was awesome. However, it's gone. I liked them all but stopped using them due to shipping cost.
There are others... will have to jiggle my memory...
