I have just used this for the first time, as I was rather put off by the comments on the smell. It's brilliant, gives a lovely soft glow to the wood, and the smell? It's slightly of honey, and makes the room smell like a well kept home. If you want your house to smell like a chemist's version of a Peruvian rain forest at dawn, this isn't for you. If you want a traditional smell of polished furniture and beeswax, please give it a go. I was also amazed at how much dirt came off the furniture, which is regularly polished with one of the spray brands - unbelievable! This is the one for me.

Beeswax - Contrasting Reviews!”
For someone looking to buy this product I was put off by some people's comments about bad odours given off. My wife and I have "keen-noses" so went to the local store to smell it for ourselves. We purchased and used it with the result being a not so sure smell when using it, but just hints of lemon afterwards. Pleasant and not at all distasteful.

Saved my table!”
Bought this after reading the reviews as the last thing to try before sanding back my venerable pine table - which had been trashed by house guests. While it has not miraculously restored the table to "as new" condition it has certainly given me back a table with a fabulous shine and brought back that "lived and loved look". Easy to use, highly recommended.

This is good!”
by Mrs Liptrot
Goes on easily and can be worked into nooks and crannies, but best of all, it polishes up without much effort and leaves a good glow and a lovely smell.

I tried this product after struggling for years with jars of 'solid' beeswax which took ages to clean and plenty of effort. I now polish each week with this product which has restored the depth of shine to my old mahogany dining table. Just ordered 2 more bottles!

Love it !!!”
by Mrs johnson
It is marvelous, just put your duster over the top of the bottle, then tip the bottle, just enough to do the job. Smell is great too. Its deceiving - such a small bottle can last so long.

I'm afraid this beeswax is not like beeswax but like cottage cheese that smells of vinegar and lemon. After one application it left my beloved pine smeary and my rooms smelling of cat sick! Its just awful. I used it once and promptley threw it away.

A note from the team: I'm sorry you've had such difficulties with the beeswax. We'll be in touch shortly to put things right for you.
This is a great product. I really liked the smell and it leaves my furniture shiny and gorgeous, with minimal effort. Shake well before use, and it pours easily.

High hopes - dashed”
I have been searching for the perfect polish for my oak furniture for several years and had hoped this might be it. How my hopes were dashed. Firstly, the design of the container is poor. I only managed to get polish out because it was full to the top. There was no way of controlling how much polish came out and I do not know how the polish will come out after a few applications as there is no way of easily getting the cloth in and out. Secondly, on rubbing the polish in it did not seem to absorb but 'splattered' everywhere. I would not recommend this product to anyone.

This stuff is brilliant - it brought out the shine on my light oak furniture beautifully, took out some tiny scratches and smelled like polish I remember as a little girl. Love it!

Beeswax Furniture Cread”
I hadn't realised (probably my own ignorance) that this product would smell so unpleasant - like I had used an entire can of fly spray in the house. This only lasted a couple of days. I used a paint brush to apply the cream then polished with a cloth. If i was going to continue with beeswax I would buy a different product that had been perfumed.

Just used this to polish up the long case clock I inherited from my mother. It works a treat, you don't need lots and it polishes up so easily. My clock is back to how it looked when it came back from the restorers earlier in the year - wonderful.

It's not often that a household chore is so rewarding, but using this cream to polish wooden furniture pays dividends. Wood softly gleams with a rich mellow glow that seems to come from within the wood. I find that modern spray polishes can smear or leave a greasy residue that attracts fingerprints. I use Stone's furniture cream on all my wooden furniture and it brings it up a treat, removing dirt and dust and nourishing the wood. The best bit is the oldfashioned luxurious scent that lingers on.
