This FO smells exactly like fresh basil and a tomato plant. If that is the fragrance your looking for. I don't think I will use it in a candle but when I close my eyes and smell it, I think I am in a green house full of Italian herbs and tomato plants.

When I received this scent, I thought it was a pleasant smell in the bottle. It even had a pleasant scent as I was making the candles using 444 wax. After allowing the candles to cure for a week, I tested one in a small bathroom, and there was no smell whatsoever. I am very disappointed in this scent. Now I am having to figure out a scent to add to this wax in order for it to have a throw. The sad thing is that it had more of a scent (not much) after I blew the candle out.

Thought I would add a review on this FO, since I was pleasantly surprised! My first impression was that it doesn't smell like basil, but I also don't get the cilantro/parsley smell that others claim. To me its certainly "green" but had a bit of spiciness. Truthfully, I wasn't a fan ... UNTIL.... I poured it in 464 and let it cure. I still wasn't too keen on the scent it was giving off during cold throw, however, yesterday I lit my sample candle and WOW! This is a winner! A really strong clean green scent. This would pair nicely with a fig fragrance.

This is not a bad scent, but it is different. Smells like grass. I can't get anyone to buy it! Thought it would be a good summer scent, but it's not working out.

As the previous reviewer said - parsley and grass. That being said, I think it smells great and very natural. Also reminds me of walking into a flower shop. I do, however, sell it as "Herb Garden" as I really can't smell the sweetness of basil at all.

It has a nice smell. It has a minty smell. It smells like fresh cut grass in the spring. It smells natural not artificial.

Super good cold throw, and pretty strong hot throw. I love it, and have gotten several orders! It has a spicy, earthy scent and I feel like I am in the garden. Definitely adding it as a kitchen scent.

Not liking this one. Wanted something different so decided to try Basil and Herb. Expected a sweeter herb. My mother loved it though.

Not going to reorder. I love 9/10 scents from Candlescience, but not this one.

This is a wonderfully fresh and clean fragrance. It definitely has a green plant smell. It is not overpowering, just a nice subtle "wow that smells nice" kind of thing. I just ordered a 1 oz bottle but I will certainly order more. Poured in a paraffin/soy mixture.

I've intended to use these in soaps and the scent was just as described. Great kitchen/facial scent!

I use a lot of fresh herbs in my cooking. Parsley is one of them. If you have ever minced fresh parsley, you will know that to be this fragrance. No basil at all. I smell parsley and grass. Not a bad scent, but definately not basil.

Basil and Herb is a beautiful, green, fresh straight from the garden fragrance. It is now up there with my favorite scents. Tested in my custom palm/soy pillar blend and it burned great and threw scent perfectly! Love it, Love it!

The scent description says it all. Wonderful cold & hot throw. I have been searching for a scent like this and now my search is over.
