An enchanting meadow fringed with springs of lavender.
- Nice Lavender Scent
Agree with Stacy, this Lavender has a more natural hot throw. Cold is similar to an AirWick Lavender plug-in, but has a nice punch (I personally like strong scents) I used this with GB464/ECO 10/8% in an 8oz tin. May try 8.5% and ECO 12 just to add a little more kick on a second test.
- A Good Lavender Fragrance
Out of the bottle and cold throw-wise, this lavender smells more powdery and not like a "true" lavender to me. The hot throw, however, seems to give more of the "true" lavender smell off. I do personally like it, and we will find out soon enough if my customer base does too when they are on sale to the public. My fiance and his best friend have bought two of the three I'd made for private sales, if that says anything!<br /> <br /> My general usage of all fragrance oils is 1.2oz per pound of wax, using GB464.
- Much Better
After some additional testing I'm happy to say that this is a good lavender (and the lavender dye chips with this are perfect.) I don't recommend going much higher than 9%, however, it gets quite strong after that. My leftover tealights turned soapy smelling but my friends' testers with lids did just fine and are not soapy at all after several weeks. Once you get your FO percentage right this is actually a pretty nice oil. My friend tells me that compared to other lavender candles that she has purchased and burned, these are better. :) I used 464 and varied the oil between 6% and 9%. I'll definitely be purchasing this in larger bottles for my relaxing fragrances.
- Not Pleased!
Tried a sample bottle with a customer. She said she could not smell it at all while burning. She is a new customer, has been very happy with all scents. I used GB 464, 1oz to 12 oz wax.
- True Lavender Fragrance
I have tried many different lavender fragrance oils, and never expected to find anything as realistic as this oil. It has all of the notes of true lavender including a bit of camphor. A beautiful fragrance oil, and the best part for me is that it is very easy to work with in cold process soap, plenty of time to do multiple colors, and the scent holds true.
- I just don't know!
I really wanted to love this fragrance oil, but I just don't know what to think about it. Out of the bottle it isn't bad, in fact it smells similar to essential oil...But burning in the candle, the fragrance actually made my head hurt, which is pretty rare (and I love lavender.) To test I used 464 at max load (which is something I'm doing for all of my tests, loading at the max % per wax type), however for my second test I'm going to put less oil in it and possibly test with EcoSoya CB Advanced wax. Perhaps it is too strong at 12%, so I'm giving it a second chance and sending those testers to a fellow lavender lover. If she likes it then I'll probably order more of it and see how it does, but if not, I'm going to have to wait until I can afford to work with a more expensive lavender fragrance oil for my candles (which is a bummer!). It's just a little too artificial, and a little soapy for my personal preference... It smells better when burnt with a vanilla candle, I may also test a lavender and very vanilla mix. So far this is the only CS FO that I'm really hesitant about. Rating 2.5 stars.
- Lavender Lover
I used GB 464, 1 oz. FO per pound. I've loved lavender for years, since it was my grandmother's favorite scent. I couldn't wait to try this, but found it lacking. It doesn't have a BAD smell, it just has a somewhat synthetic or perfume smell to me. Maybe it's as close to the real thing as a FO can get, but I'm going to keep trying to find one that smells more natural to me. I guess if I didn't happen to be somewhat of a lavender snob, I'd like this more. :)
This fragrance is expanding my customer base! They love it. They tell me its a true lavender smell. I light my lavender candle everyday when I get home from work. It's such a soothing smell.
- Best Seller!
I am not a floral fan but purchased a sample of this to try with my "flower-lovers." It turns out, this scent is so beautiful, I am now a fan! It had an amazing scent throw in my soy 464 tarts and IGI 4627 candles. Fantastic.
- Just okay
I really love fresh lavender, and something about this FO was just... off. Smells gross out of the bottle, but simmers down quiet a bit once it is cured over night. While this scent may not be for me, my client seemed to really enjoy it. I would order this again if I had a request for it. I used 1.5oz/lb in GB 464 and the scent was delicate, not overpowering.
I NEVER think any scent is strong enough. I like very strong smelling candle,but this has done it. Hands down strongest and best throw. I used 2oz /lb in 464 soy wax. I only lite the candle for an hour and the smell lingers and the cold throw does the rest!
- Lavender Scent
I could not smell the aroma after heating the Lavender wax. I used one pound soy wax and 1 ounce of Lavender scent<br /> <br /> How can I get a good scent throw from the Lavender using Soy Wax?<br /> <br /> <br /> <br />
- A perfect match
I am not a Lavender fan but so many of my customers rave over this fragrance. This is one of my best sellers!
- Beautiful and balanced scent
The is lavender has all the things I love about lavender at an affordable cost. I can smell the floral middle notes, and a slight bit of the camphor just like real lavender. Its a beautiful blended balanced oil. The adding of real essential oil is what I love most about this particular scent. Delicate and balanced. Beautiful...
- Obsessed with Lavender
As someone who has been obsessed with lavender for many years, this did not smell pure, clean and natural--the way lavender ought to. It smells more like a perfume. I really wish it were more crisp, true and earthy. Lavender is EARTHY. This was not.
- huge disappointment
I was really hoping for a clean french lavender scent, just like the essential oil. This compares more with the perfumey scent of old lady bath powder.
- I LOVE IT!
Lavender is the most beautiful scent on this planet..This fragrance has a wonderful scent in my candles. Everytime i make them i just fall in love with the scent more and more!! Candlescience is Great!
- True to name
This lavender is without a doubt the best I have ever found! The throw in cold is almost as good as when it is lit. This is for all lavender lovers. Top seller for me.
- Good throw, subtle scent
This lavender has an excellent throw, that will reach the top of my stairs. It has a nice, sweet, authentic scent. It is, however, a bit subtle for my taste. I prefer a bolder scent,. But people have different preferences, so if you like it subtler, this is a good product.
Many lavender scents have a soapy scent but this one is a good lavender scent.
- lavender fragrance oil
In soaps and soy candles this lavender smells just like my french lavender essential oil- only Candle Science's lavender does not fade like my essential <br /> oil!! I am SO happy to find this fragrance...it does not discolor and handles like a dream...If your customers know true lavender they will love your products scented with this!!<br /> Andree
- The best!
I am NOT a lavender fan at all but I fell in love with this one! Not overpowering at all. A very nice light relaxing scent. This is the only lavender I have found that does'nt give me a migraine when pouring.
