Grapefruit and Mangosteen
A true-to-life blend of ripe, tangy grapefruit and mangosteen- an exotic fruit that is citrusy and sweet with a hint of peach.
Out of the bottle the grapefruit dominates with its sharp and punchy citrus notes. Once in wax, the fragrance mellows just a bit, with the warmer and sweeter mangosteen coming through. The fragrance reaches balance while burning, when both fruits meld into a strong fragrance that has a citrus punch, a hint of peach, and a naturally derived sweetness.
Soy candle maker's note: For years, we've tested dozens of grapefruit fragrances and we haven't been impressed. We put lots of research and development into figuring out why the chemistry just doesn't work. This fragrance is the result of all that work. While it is a 2/3 in soy (just leaves us room to keep trying), it is the best we've ever seen, and we think you'll agree.Suggested Colors: Orange, Yellow,

I read the review that said it smelled like the Anthropologie Volcano candle and I was sold. It does smell surprisingly like that. Really, really great smell for Spring and Summer.

I love citrus scents, and this one is spot on. Clean, crisp and not cloyingly sweet. It makes your mouth water. I had a half dozen scented candles on the table, and my friends rated this one of their top two. Citron Mandarin is another good one to try. Excellent cold and hot throw in a soy blend.

This has a lovely hot and cold scent throw. If you have ever smelled the Volcano candles that are popular at Anthropologie, this is VERY close to that scent. This is definitely a year-round favorite.

This is a wonderfully fresh, fruity, and strong fragrance. If I have several candles out for sale this one always steals the show. Customers love it and even though its a very strong scent it doesn't give me a headache to pour. Amazing cold throw as well. GB 464 at 1oz/lb.

This scent is simply amazing and it's so strong. I can smell it on a different floor of the house! One of those FO's you just can't go wrong it. Buying a bigger bottle next time for sure.

We have a customer that loves this scent so I made the purchase in a 1oz bottle. I will now be coming back soon for a larger bottle. This scent is spot on! Perfectly heavenly! It's not over powering nor too strong. Has a very beautiful scent when both cold or hot! The description is spot on!

I have never personally ordered this FO but a friend of mine has and made me an 8 ounce mason jar candle using GB 444 and the scent was very pleasing and strong. I honestly cant believe this only has 2 leafs. This awesome citrus delight will not disappoint!

I love grapefruit scents but unfortunately they fall short in Soy wax. Usually I get excellent cold throw and no hot throw at all, until now. I made this for a customer in gb464 and also added a tangerine scent with it and bingo bango! I made the most beautiful scent! She loved it and everyone else that smelled it bought a candle from me! I sold out the whole batch in two hours that's six candles! I will be making this again! Thanks!

Very strong hot and cold throw! I'm surprised this isn't a 3 leaf rating. Very pleasant smell and very unique. Definitely one of the best grapefruit and citrus scents I've tried. This has been a very popular scent. I used .9oz of fragrance oil for 10.1 oz of Soy464 wax in a container.

I am using GB 464 soy wax, but can't seem to get a hot throw. For those that did, how many oz. of FO per lb. of wax did you pour? And at what temps? THANK YOU!

This is my new favorite summer/spring scent. Not only does it rock my world, but everyone of my customers requested this scent.

This fragrance is simply amazing. Sweet, yet tart. It is the perfect citrus blend. I used in Soy 464 and the scent was incredible cold and hot. I will be reordering.

I use this scent at 1 1/2 ounce per pound in IGI 4627. Hot and cold throw is very good. It is a toss up between this scent and Oakmoss and Amber as my favorite. I have yet to find anyone that did not like this scent. Regardless of the season this one is a favorite.

This smells like a mixed dring without the alcohol. Equal parts grapefruit and mangosteen. Strong and sinfully good.

Used in 464 wax in 8 oz. jelly jars (3 fl. oz. of fragrance to 32 oz. of wax) - AMAZING throw and delicious citrus/sweet scent. A truly mood-lifting fragrance!

It is very overpowering in the bottle, just like the description says. But in wax, it mellows alot, and has the sweeter scent. Delicious scent! Very strong!

This may only have a 2 leaf rating, in your soy, but in my GB 415..it has a 5 leaf rating..It not only has a great HT, which I can smell all over my house..But it smells so good, good enough, be careful or you will want to pick it up and drink it..

I received this as a sample. I had to reorder in a bigger size. I used it as a burning oil and looking forward to using it in my soy wax. It smells wonderful out the bottle and even better as a burning oil.
