15 sticks for $14.50. I haven't had Arko in a while and have been wanting to try some again. I'll mash a few up and let em air out good.

I had ordered some just a bit before this thread was posted. I'm sure some of my stick friends will be happy.

I really like Arko and made the same buy. I'll probably be taking a Dirt Nap before it's all used up! Biggrin

Maybe not. However, MWF has moved Arko to 2nd place.

For me, that's probably the part of this purchase that makes it a bit over the top. I've never tried ARKO or any stick for that matter. Confused

Gear,

As long as you can get your head around the scent, you'll like the performance. I don't know that anyone has ever said it didn't work for them.

If you like the scent of Williams or citronella you'll like Arko. To me they smell very similar.
----------

That's an excellent price. It was 15 sticks for $18 not long ago.

That's exactly what I've read. If I don't happen to like the scent, I'll open the package and let it air out for a month before using it. I've been told it mellows out really well. I do happen to like Williams.

The Amazon price is actually below what I was charged wholesale for Arko. This is why I would not carry Arko again in a million years.

If you don't like the Arko, I'll take some off your hands since we're close by. I'll even buy 7 sticks off you if you want to split the order. I bought a stick and sbsolutely love it. I think the complaining about the scent is over rated.

If you want to hold off I could drop a little piece of the unused end of my Arko in a baggie in the mail and you could check it out. Lemme know.

I plan to do a lot of experimenting with my sticks. I'm going to try the leaving it out trick and see if that helps with the scent, and I'm definitely going to grate some up and put it a bowl. Plus, knowing me, i'll probably PIF a few sticks of it on here as well.
