I loved these! Please don't discontinue...

Darn, so sorry these are discontinued, I loved them! It was so refreshing to use this color with my Bayberry candles using your oils, because then all my Christmas candles wouldn't seem like an overload of the same Christmas-type green. Received an email from you this morn saying they were back in stock after being out of stock, and now when I try to order them, it says you don't have any of that quantity (and I tried every quantity, even "1".) :( Every time I find a color I love of yours, such as Bayberry and Orchid, seems you discontinue them...Wish you'd bring both back...

I tested these color chips in Golden 444 wax with and without fragrance and both times it turned an ugly pea soup brownish green. I would not have purchased these had I read the reviews. Buyer beware.

Wrong color

After reading these reviews I added 3 chips to 1 1/2 lbs GW464 Soy after it was +185 degrees. The color I got was indeed chartreuse with an orange rim. Pretty bummed that I wasted all this wax and scent on something I didn't want. I was trying to make Christmas candles so the color is all wrong. I hope CandleScience reads these reviews and changes his product out.

Changes color

I used 2/3 of a chip in 9oz of soy, it set up with peach tones separated around the edges and over 24 hours turned a weird zombie skin color. As it burns it returns to a nice green color. Very strange, I will try 2 chips next time to see what difference it might make.

Changing color?

We've had success with this color in the past, but now it comes out looking great, but then changes to a brownish/peach color- is anyone else having this problem? We're trying to figure out if it's the dye or the temp of the wax or the room. There are so many variants... just wondering if anyone has come across the same thing and has any suggestions to keep them nice and green?

Thrilled with the NOT Bayberry color of this Green!

I was thrilled with the color, but it definitely wasn't bayberry! It was more of a Chartreuse/Green Pear (close to RGB 209, 226, 49 or hex triplet #D1E231) in color with 2 chips in a pound of GB 464. I happen to love the color and it is great for my Apple Harvest scent. Only giving it 3 stars because it isn't true to its name, but would give it 5 if it would not be misleading.

lime green

I used two chips in 1.5 lbs of 464 and it turned lime green. Very nice color, just not what I was hoping for with a bayberry scented candle.

Bayberry vs. Hunter Green

I used 2 bayberry dye chips in 1 lb 5 oz of soy 464 wax hoping I would get a deeper Bayberry shade -- the color is closer to pea soup than traditional Bayberry -- today I used 1 Hunter Green dye chip in the same amount and brand of soy wax and I think Hunter Green color is much closer to a Bayberry color, 1 chip is light and muted like Bayberry, I wonder if 2 chips would be closer to a traditional Hunter?
