Reduce it to 1% and another to 0.1%. it takes on a different persona at lower concentrations.
I quite like a weeny dash with green/citrus compositions but yes it really dominates any blends with a sort of celery/old fence/spicy musky note. It goes quite peppery when with lemon, and is quite nice with another green like oakmoss. It leans more towards a basenote than a middle range. Lavender works quite nicely with it as a floral. IMO only, not gospel.
