GW 464 is a good quality soy wax produced by global wax giant AAK under the Golden Brands name.
With a melting point of 45-48C, it is a natural replacement for the discontinued CB-135, CB-Advanced and CB-Xcel blends. CL and Stabilo wicks tend to work best in this wax, with a 30cl candle requiring a CL17/CL18 or Stabilo 16/18. This will of course depend on fragrance.
The wax will hold 10%+ of most fragrances, although 7-8% is usually more than enough.
As ever, a warm ambient temperature (20C), warm glassware and the prevention of rapid temperature changes during cooling will reduce the likelihood of polymorphism/frosting.
This wax is prone to circular surface cracking, but this can usually be reduced/eliminated by good temperature control.

I love this wax in general but this specific one is giving me the smoothest tops. I'm obsessed! I am a new customer with candle shack and a very happy one. Looking fwd to ordering all my supplies with you guys!!!
My experience was great! This product is a lot easier to use rather than container wax due to not having to cut the wax, although I think the packaging of the wax could be better due to when taking the wax out of the bag it goes everywhere. Also this wax does take a lot longer to harden than container wax.
Great product, clean, non fragrant. Will be definitely ordering from here in the future.
Once I mastered pouring at a lower temperature and heating my containers, getting a smooth top to my candles has been much easier and also meant I rarely ever use a heat gun anymore! I pour, just as wax is about to go cloudy and have had great results since.
Great item I have been using this wax for a number of years now.
