It's a shame that some crafters who are unfamiliar with true Bayberry fragrance have given this fragrance less than good reviews. Bayberry is a shrub that grew abundantly along eastern coastal areas. Our ancestors harvested the small berries to extract a pleasant smelling wonderful wax that they used to make excellent candles. This is not a fruit/berry type fragrance despite the name. I feel that Candlescience's version is a dead on ringer and a great fragrance. I only wish it were soap safe. I love it!

I grew up with Bay Berry candles burning every Christmas. I bought 1 oz samples from numerous distributors and I have to say Candle Science offers the best authentic Bay Berry fragrance oil I have sampled yet. I just ordered a 16 oz bottle because I've been telling all the Snow Birds down here I will be offering this candle scent. After reading some other reviews, I am afraid the larger bottle will be weaker than the sample one I purchased. I sincerely hope that will not be the case. Surely Candle Science will sell us the same quality FO in a larger size as they sell us in a sample size. Otherwise, it will most certainly hurt their business to dupe good paying customers!

This is one of my top three year-round best sellers. I'm really surprised to see so many people not liking the scent- I originally made it for my mom who remembers when Bayberry candles were very popular during the holidays and now it's hard to find a version that matches her memory of this scent. She loves it- my customers ranging from 20s - 50s love it. Please don't ever stop carrying this.

The description of this scent says it's the perfect blend of fir and balsam with the just the right amount of nutmeg and spice. I detect none of this. In my opinion, it's a very strong, unpleasant, perfumey scent. The description is way off.

I don't know what your house smells like during the holidays, but mine does not (and did not) smell like this. I guess the name threw me a little, as this is nothing like a berry scent. And of course the details above don't say anything about berries either. However, as I am constantly on the look out for really strong scents that can fill up a room, this one foots the bill. It is a little flowery for my tastes but I find the scent pleasant nonetheless. I wish I could come up with better adjectives to help the next person, but no particular scent really jumps out at me in order to define the fragrance better and I can't think of a comparison scent.

I bought this because my mom and aunt requested Bayberry. They were both born around 1960 and said that Bayberry was a classic Christmas smell from their childhood. For me, this smelled like a softer version of Old Spice. Definitely has a manly sort of feel. This candle would probably be good in a mixed crowd because it is not too sweet or strong. Unlike other "perfumey" FOs, this did not give me a headache to pour, which is great. I used this is GB 464 at 1oz/lb.

I have had so many requests for this scent. Even though Candle Science rates it only 2 stars I say it is a 3. I use GB 464 and use 8.5% FO

I have tried Bayberry samples from 7 different companies and to my nose, CS has the best smelling Bayberry, bar none! It is a complex and woody scent. You can really smell the different fragrance notes in this one. Plus it has a fantastic scent throw in Glass Glow Palm wax. (If this stuff were body safe it would make a really nice cologne.)
