I really was looking forward to this scent, however, it smells like baby wipes and toxic chemicals. It's far from any olfactory Christmas scent. I wouldn't ever recommend this one.

We did not experience any acceleration or separation. Once at a light trace we noticed the batter turned bright yellow. The soap poured smoothly into the mold and did not begin to stiffen. After 24 hours, we observed the soap had almost reached a full gel and the bars discolored to a light tan around the outer edges while the center remained yellow. The scent was strong with a dominant eucalyptus note. After 30 days, the soap bars discolored to a uniform light tan and the scent remained strong.
Honestly, I'm not a huge fan of this out of the bottle or on blotter paper. I also wasn't a huge fan of the mimosa one so I think my personal taste doesn't like the champagne notes (although I love champagne lol) I didn't want to send it back and waste it so I got some Palo Santo to blend with it and oh my goodness it smells soooo good! I did a simple 50/50 blend because I'm new to blending FO. I created a soap with black charcoal, swirled with evergreen, and branded it as "obsidian forest" and I gotta say it's a pretty sexy smell :). I haven't tried it in a candle, yet, so I can't speak for the hot throw but I'm very excited to try!
Not a fan, this one smells like bathroom air freshener to me. I received a sample of Cypress and Bayberry, if you are looking for a nice Christmas Tree smell I recommend that one.
I use this (and a very light proprietary blend of something else) for my candles called "Midnight Forest" and they are by far the best selling candles. People buy one, take it home and don't even have to light it for the scent to fill the room. I e had multiple customers buy one candle and then come back and buy up to 5 or 6 more. This will be permanent in my line. Very refreshing scent!
OOf very strong almost smells like really strong mens cologne. I think Christmas Hearth smells more like the pine scent a lot of us were going for
Crazy how different people smell different things in a fragrance. This fragrance I can't stand the scent of. Out of the bottle and cold | hot throws, it smells totally like Campho-Phenique, which we use to relieve itching from mosquito bites. I don't get any of the notes mentioned. My customers much prefer all of our other scents.
I use 6%, not 10%. 1oz FO to 1 lb wax.
This is a wonderful scent. Not too piney, not too flowery. A nice suttle fragrance for fall and winter.
I use in melts, 10% FO, paraffin blend wax.
I got the first bottle as a free sample that I had selected when I bought my soy wax and I am soooo glad I picked this scent! I am just starting to make candles for business and I tried out a test candle in my house to see what the scent throw was like. My God this is unbelievable. This smells amazing!!! My living room has cathedral ceilings and the whole downstairs now smells like this! I just bought a 16oz bottle and honestly I don’t even want to sell these. I want to keep them all for myself!!!
Lately I've been testing more and more CS fragrances in CP soap and this was my latest pick because I'm already obsessed with how it burns so why not!
I stick blended my oils and lye until I reached a very thin trace (I was doing a drop swirl) and split up my batter by colors. I then whisked in my fragrance to give myself enough working time. My batter stayed so fluid throughout this process well after I whisked in my FO, it was awesome! My drop swirl came out perfectly... and two days after the cut it still smells amazing.
Only problem is the discoloration. Since it was mentioned that it discolors to light tan, I made sure to add enough TD to whiten part of my batter. When I took it out of the mold, the sides already discolored to a light tan/red color. I would be sort of upset about the discoloration but given my color scheme of choice, it actually worked out really well.
This is by far my favorite Christmas scent (besides Apples Maple Bourbon). This scent is the #1 requested for dough bowl candles and I loveee the smell. Smells like a christmas tree but also that "manly" alpine smell that the women love right now for candles!
I just made my tester yesterday with 6006 wax, and man, the CT on this thing is amazing!! I cannot stop smelling it. The HT filled the entire room nicely in the 10 oz Nordic tumblers. I cannot wait to bring these to market, 10/10.
I thought I would try this this year for the holiday, so I made up a batch tried one of the candles and it was really really nice scent. I know that it is listed as a holidays fragrance but could be used year-round. Really nice and light scent and has a great hot throw. I would definitely buy again.. used 464 wax . With eight oz tin. Used an eco 10 wick . I know the reviews haven’t been the greatest on the eco-10 wick but I have never had a problem with them and I use them all the time.
the musk smell is too overpowering...i cant smell any fresh pine or refreshing scent.
like the previous review, this scent is too masculine. i only regret buying 2 huge bottles without trying it first : (
I was so excited to see such positive reviews. This was a miss for me and I was planning on it being a staple of my Christmas line so I’m super bummed. The scent is more of a masculine powdery smell than a crisp balsam smell, which I really wanted.
I was very happy with this fragrance, I did 6% with 464 wax absolutely perfect. Both with wooden and cotton wick and the cold and hot throw just right.
This was the one I was most looking forward to in this fragrance launch and I've been waiting to review this one until my candle cured! I finally lit my Alpine Balsam candle today and the cold throw and the hot throw are both just amazing. It smells so light, fresh, crisp, and woodsy. My favorite candle scent of all time is Yankee's Balsam Cedar and while this fragrance doesn't smell the same by any means, I think it smells a bit better than it honestly! I LOVE Balsam and CS hit the nail on the head with this.
Side note: last night I was repainting my office and I left this candle on my shelves. Even though I was wearing a mask and was venting out my room, I kept getting whiffs of my candle and I kept asking myself, "What is that?!" It's great. I'm looking forward to releasing this for one of my winter scents.
Let me preface this by saying I am NOT a fan of any "Pine" scents - but this one is not overpowering and the Bergamot is an excellent balance - this is currently in my testing phase for my holiday line with BW921.
I got this into 464 at 10% and the cold throw is rich. A nice pine comes through as you walk by. I imagine this one will be as popular at the market as Frasier Fir. Nice job, CandleScience!
This fragrance has a Christmas morning but also a Christmas eve scent to it. OOTB there's definitely pine but there's a Light hint of citrus. I accidentally got some on my nose and after a minute or so its smells like you can also use it as a lotion/cologne because its not a straight Christmas tree scent. Sounds weird but its refreshing and it smells good. I might be replacing white birch with this one for my x-mas line.
