Year after year vanilla reigns supreme as the best selling candle fragrance. With its intense vanilla aroma, subtle touch of cream, and exceptional performance in soy, palm, and paraffin; Very Vanilla may be your own best seller.

Phthalate Free

This fragrance is NOT compatible with our Reed Diffuser Base

Suggested Colors: Ivory, Brown
See our complete list of candle making dyes.

Wondering why there is so much variation in feedback? We believe this is a solubility issue. The wax needs to be at 185 F when the fragrance oil is added or it will not go into solution. The result is poor cold/hot throw and a candle with all the fragrance oil pooled at the bottom of the container.

Rating - 8 oz tin filled the room in minutes

Made samples in 8oz tin and within 15 minutes the room was filled with the sweet smell of vanilla...:)<br /> <br /> GB464/12% FO/ECO 10/24hr cure<br /> <br /> As a side note, there was someone on here that recommended pouring GB464 at 170...THANKS! I did 3 - 1 lb batches this weekend (4 different FO's and 4 different colors), all nice smooth, flat tops and NO FROST. I added FO at 185, stirred for 3 minutes then poured...great results. This worked great on tins, dont know how well the high pour temp will work on glass.

Rating - Great Hot &amp; Cold Throw.

I have been using this Vanilla for a few years and it is by far the best vanilla scent that I have ever used. I am surprised to see that people either love it, or hate it. Not much in between.<br /> <br /> I use this in EcoSoya Advance Soy Wax and I have always had the best luck with cold throw and hot throw. I have never tried to mix this with any other scents because this is a great stand alone fragrance that everyone seems to love!

Rating - Great Hot Throw, (actually better than I anticipated)

I finally got around to burning my sample (6%load in GB464). The cold throw was ok, not super strong, so I figured I would get a similar hot throw. I was definitely suprised by the great hot throw. It was able to fill my house with a light pleasing creamy vanilla scent with a little hint of cookie too. I did make sure to follow the directions of adding the FO at 185* and it seemed to work fine for me. I also poured at 160* and the candle turned out great. I will be adding this scent to my line. Thanks Candlescience!

Rating - NOT FOR ME

This scent was very disappointing. I made wax melts using GB 464 and they came out nice and all but the smell of this scent while burning gives me a headache and really makes me just want to throw it all out. I tried mixing it with a raspberry, as well as a blueberry oil that I have and it just does not seem to mix well at all with other scents. I still get the cloying overbearing cheap vanilla smell that gives me a headache. I was expecting a smooth, warm and creamy vanilla. I will continue to use the vanilla from my other oil source as theirs is much more to my liking. I love your scents candle science but this one need some tweaking.

Rating - Revision of last review

To revise the last review I wrote, I have recently come to find that it is in fact not the oil that is changing my candles colors, it is to do with the wax and dye chip I was using. But it still stands that this FO smells amazing. :)

Rating - Smells great but turns a weird color!

I used this (~1.5 oz/pound) in GB 444 and it turns a really strange color after burning! I used a yellow dye chip to make it more vanilla-y but after burning the bottom part of the jar and the wax that cools has turned a strange pinkish color. Does not affect the wonderful smell- which you can smell from outside my door- but concerns me a little. Worth a shot though!

Rating - Wonderful Vanilla XO

I am using Soy GB444 &amp; have been making candles about 8 months. This is my first Vanilla, even though I agree, it is a staple scent in any line! It smells wonderful cold or while burning. I am enjoying it personally while having it for sale. My business has only been open since February 2014. I am SURE this will be GREAT for my lil-shop! www.etsy.com/shop/blueskycandles

Rating - Missing Vanilla Lace

I was skeptical when purchasing this as I am very picky about vanilla fragrances. I've used the Vanilla Lace scent for several years , blending it in with other fragrances. Wow, was I disappointed that it was discontinued. Very Vanilla smells like a Yankee Candle scent... VERY in your face. Does not blend well with other scents, too over powering. If you're a vanilla fanatic, I'm sure you'll love this, but if you like a more subtle vanilla that can be mixed in with other fragrances, forget it. Please bring back Vanilla Lace!!

Rating - It's okay

I had high hopes for Very Vanilla but unfortunately it has been disappointing. I must preface my comments by saying I absolutely love CandleScience, all of their FOs are very high quality and just the perfect concentration. I have tried oils from several other companies and none of them compare in performance. That being said I personally like Very Vanilla as a scent, however my review here is based on feedback from many of my customers. Most of them have commented that it smells &quot;ok&quot; but it isn't really much different than other vanilla candles they have smelt from other companies, this is in stark contrast to the 30 other scents I have from CS which people say really stand out from other products they have tried.<br /> <br /> For this reason I will be going with CS French Vanilla on my next order. I'm sure others here may have better success with this fragrance.

Rating - Very Disappointed

I was very excited about this smell. My boyfriend loves vanilla and I thought this would be perfect. When making the candle the smell was strong and &quot;very vanilla&quot;. The cold throw was amazing. The whole house smelled like soft vanilla. I lit the candle expecting the fragrance to fill the room and got almost nothing. I have it burning two feet from me and can't smell anything. I am only able to to smell it if I put my nose directly over the top of the candle. In my small guest bathroom there was a faint smell. I used GB464 soy wax and put 1oz of fragrance per lb. I may try this again and double the fragrance but am worried it may be a waste of time and money. overall very disappointing instead of very vanilla.

Rating - AWESOME!

&quot;Very Vanilla&quot; is a very accurate name! It's awesome I love it!

Rating - Awesome!

This is definitely one of my best sellers in my store. I actually renamed it to &quot;Mom's vanilla cream pudding&quot; Customers love it and says the name fits it to a T! Thanks CS, keep this one going. I use GB464 (2lbs) to 3 oz. scent. ECO 10 wick!

Rating - Not a personal favorite...however;

Personally, I am not a fond of this smell . Out of all the 16 scents i ordered this was the least favorite of all. Bit fake to me however i do like Candlescience and its excellent customer service. I will try to mix with other scents to see what i come up with. <br /> <br />

Rating - Great classic vanilla

I love this scent! Has great cold and hot throw. It's not overly sweet, just classic vanilla. Will order again soon!

To me it smells just like vanilla extract! Which to me is amazing. Great cold & hot throw! Will be buying again! I used 464 wax at 10%.

Rating - Disappointed

I bought a large sized based on previous reviews to use in GB 464. Smelled good out of the bottle. After pouring, the candle smelled like fake vanilla. Not the scent I was hoping for. Followed recommended directions regarding flash point and wax setup was fine. I'll keep trying other vanilla fragrances.

Rating - BEST EVER!

this scent is SO STRONG. 1oz/1lb. just made my second purchase on this scent again. buy this scent!

Rating - A Must Have

I use 1 1/2 ounce per pound in IGI 4627. Hot and cold throw are great but hot has been better for me. There is no guess work when you smell it. Very Vanilla delivers a warm enjoyable vanilla scent.

Rating - Yumm!

I used this fragrance for my first attempt at candle making. It smells so delicious! It reminds me a bit of vanilla frosting, but without being too sickeningly sweet. I made the candles 2 days ago, and my place still has a wonderful vanilla aroma lingering in the air, I love it!

Rating - Soy candles and CP soap

CP Soap: Discolors to a dark chocolate. No acceleration and no morphing. Behaves well in CP soap!<br /> Soy Wax: Awesome cold and hot throw.<br /> Smell: Like fake "vanilla frosting" lip balm. Love it!

Rating - Excellent

Love this fragrance. One of my bestsellers.

Rating - Wonderful Vanilla !!!!

This is a wonderful vanilla smell if your still looking for that perfect vanilla.I still find myself going and picking the vanilla up just to smell it , it is a little harsh right out of the bottle but once it was put into the wax it just transforms into something amazing!

Rating - Perfect vanilla !

Out of the bottle it is not too sweet or chemically. I mixed this with equal parts rainwater and lavender and could not stop smelling the result ! Any one that I had smell this mixture was hooked so I will be adding this to my line. Awesome !

Rating - Apprehensive!!

I first used this oil back in 2009 when I started out and it was BY FAR THE BEST VANILLA! I had ever ordered; However, I have tried it a couple of times since and was HIGHLY disappointed I could barely smell it and I actually have lost the few vanilla loving customers I had dont know if I got a bad batch or has this recipe changed? if so please change it back!! I love you guys scents but am truly apprehensive about ordering Very Vanilla again need a good one!! Thanks

Rating - My favorite!

If you like vanilla scent, you will LOVE this! Great hot/cold throw in GB464 soy wax with a 10% fragrance load. Will definitely be back for more!

Rating - disappointed

I left a previous review below. the scent was EXCELLENT. upon my 2nd order of the same fragrance, I was very disappointed. It did not seem like the same strength of scent out of the bottle and it was much weaker in the candles. I used the same amount of oil and wax (same type as before, as well)and it was not as strong as my previous order. I dont know if the supplier did not mix it the same or what. If do reorder this scent, I will stick to smaller quantities.

Rating - Excellent Vanilla!

my friends snapped up all of the Very Vanilla candles that I made! Smelled like Buttercream. I was very pleased with the scent. It did not smell "cheap", as some vanilla scents do. I used 2 oz of fragrance per lb of EcoSoy Advanced.

Rating - Absolute ESSENTIAL to any candle line

I must admit I am not a fan of Vanilla, however, it is an essential fragrance for any candle line. I used GB464, 16 oz candle tin and triple wicked with Eco 10. 1 1/2 ouce of fragrance used. Both cold and hot throw AMAZING! I performed my test burn in my large master bedroom ( for someone who does not like Vanilla...probably not a good idea!) the hot throw was so strong that 5 hours AFTER extinguishing the candle my room is infused with Vanilla. If you have clients that love Vanilla you MUST stock this fragrance.

Rating - Very Vanilla is very good.

Although I am new to the candle buisness, this is the best vanilla I smelled yet. I have sampled 5 other sellers and this is the best vanilla of all of them. It is not the strongest scent ever made in the world, but for vanilla, is pretty darn good.

Rating - very vanilla

WOW!! Just ordered a sample size, and coming back for more. For serious Vanilla lovers. Make in GB464 Soy Wax and has both great cold and hot throw....Thanks CS, for another winner!!

Rating - Worst Vanilla Ever

This had such great reviews, so I took a chance and purchased a large amount. Cold throw smells good, but there is very little to no scent when burning. This is the most disappointing Vanilla I have ever used! Container candles, IGI 4627, 4786 & 4630A

Rating - WOW!

I love this vanilla, i made tarts with this for a friend, she loved them. I have tried several vanillas this one is tops.

Rating - this is going to be my best seller

all i can say is ......WOW!! i have already ordered more.

Rating - 10 stars is more like it!!!

Awesome, awesome, awesome vanilla! If you LOVE vanilla, you have to have this one.<br /> Absolutely to die for!

Rating - Inconsistent Vanilla

The first time I used Very Vanilla there was GREAT cold and hot throw, but after using it recently (a different bottle than what I used the first time), there was no hot throw at all. I was very disappointed because it was a favorite among customers.

Rating - awesome

This vanilla is awesome. It is very strong in palm. I left my test burn candles on when i went shopping, when i came home you could smell it out side of my house. My customers love it. Will be buying over and over.

Rating - Fantastic!!

Great cold and hot throw. I am wondering what happened to those that rated it 1 star. It is simply awesome!

Rating - No Smell

I really love this scent, but the last time I made the candles the scent was extra faint...very disappointing, this scent is one of my best sellers....What happened C.S?

Rating - Best Vanilla Ever

I have tried different suppliers but this one is the best of all.<br /> Excellent hot and cold throw.<br /> Used it on 100% soy wax 415 and on ecosoya PB

Rating - YUCK!

I was really looking forward to this one, but was greatly disappointed when I opened the bottle for a sniff and smelled nothing but cough syrup! Tried it in a candle and the same results. Awful chemical smell! I have bought many CS scents and was always very satisfied with all of them, until now. I have an 8oz. bottle of scent that I have to toss out!

Rating - Yum!

Strongest vanilla fragrance I have come across so far. Very strong and smells great. Made my whole house smell like vanilla. Excellenct scent throw hot or cold!



Rating - Possibly the best Vanilla fragrance oil ever created!

This fragrance oil is the bomb. We use it in containers, tarts, and teas and everybody loves them. The throw in soy wax (GB464, 474) is outstanding.

Rating - WOW!!! Best Vanilla Ever!!!

This is the most true vanilla I have found. CS You have done it again! I used 10% in my GB 464 and wow did the scent smell up my living room without lighting the candle. Fastest sellout I've had. Even my customers that say, Oh I'm not a vanilla candle person.

Rating - Best Vanilla Ever

I hesitate buying vanillas but needed one for a fundraiser. I have always gotten TOP NOTCH scents from CS and this one is no exceptiom. It is strong without being overbearing and deliciously creamy. I will definetley contiue to use this scent. I wicked up and didn't even need to. Thanks for your fantastic products.

Rating - So Yummy!!!

This is the best vanilla ever! Smells sweet and creamy, but not overly buttery or frosting-ish like a lot of other vanilla's. This is my new favorite vanilla:)
