This scent smelled horrible out of the bottle, I must admit. A friend that was with me when making my test candle also said it smelled bad while making it. Somehow this scent transforms into a sweet and candy like cherry scent during the cure. Smells even better while burning! I very much expected this to smell like cough syrup but it doesn't! WOW. I was pleasantly surprised by that. It smells like sweet cherries and has a nice hot and cold throw as well. Used in GB 464. Great job CS. I love the price too!

Rating - love it

I definitely love this scent it smells very good and it was definitely a hit with my fiancée.

Rating - Black Cherry is Superior

I received my free sample and used it. OMG, the scent is excellent. It's a definite that I will order and use as one of my "on hand" scents. It's a must have for candle makers.

Rating - Not real sure on this one.

Montego Bay has a more masculine scent then what I was looking for. Cold and Hot throw were awesome, just not my favorite. I use 1.5 oz. to 50-50 soy and paraffin blend. ECO 10 wick.

Rating - awesome

Macintosh apple is exactly what it says...wow, I love the fresh scent. I feel like I just bit into a fresh apple. Way to go CS. I use 1.5 oz to 50-50 soy(464) and paraffin blend. ECO 10 wick. <br /> Definitely our best seller

Rating - Cough Syrup.... then deliciousness

I do not enjoy mixing this in wax. The smell is awful. However, after a 5 day cure time in GB464, it smells like cherry lifesavers, as somebody else said. Also, did a couple batches with 1oz black cherry and Very vanilla with a 6 day cure time and OMG! I have orders for this scent like crazy.

Rating - Robitussin

After reading all the reviews I was very surprised to find that it strongly resembled Cherry cough syrup...

Rating - Not A Big Seller

It smells very generic to me and my customers. I use Ecosoy Advanced for my candles and Ecoysoya PB for my melts. The throw is fine, hot and cold, it just has a bit of a chemical smell to it.

Rating - Smells like Cherry Lifesavers!

I usually add 10% fragrance oil to my Xcel wax and actually had to back this one off to 6%! I truly appreciate being able to use less of the fragrance oil to get a really great scent throw. Smells so much like cherry lifesavers it made me want some!

Rating - New Favorite

Wow - 1 oz to 1 lb of 464 and it is amazing!

Rating - black cherry

I LOVE this fragrance. It is amazing! Very strong in ecosoya advanced. I am having a little trouble with it turning a greyish color when it solidifies after a burn. No-one seems to mind because it smells awesome!

Rating - Delicious!

One ounce of Black Cherry and one ounce of CS Very Vanilla in GB464. The men at my job said they wanted to take a spoon and eat it. One said it smelled like ice cream. Even the phone repair man said it smelled wonderful. The cold throw and hot is out of this world! They were each begging to take my sample home! I will be making lots more of these!

Rating - Wonderful scent

This scent is excellent and has a wonderful throw in soy wax. We have used it for candles, tarts and for dipping animals. It is fabulous!

Rating - Incredible!!!

This is by far the stoutest black cherry I have ever worked with... using 1 oz in Ecosoya 135 will scent a house with 4-5 rooms. I make car fresheners with it also. My husband put his in the glove box because he said it was too strong & then he said he could still smell it!

Rating - WOW!

This is one strong scent. A very powerful cherry. If you like cherry scents you will not be disappointed with this one. <br /> <br /> Wax: Cb135
