I’m using golden wax 494 and I was adding 10ml of fragrance oil to 100 grams off wax

your % is good but sometimes the temp you add the fo can affect it. too hot and fo can burn off. you should also stir a minute or so after adding it to get it truly merged with the wax. Also, some scents give a weak hot throw like pineapple.

I typically add 5% beeswax to my soy and it seems to anchor my scents.
