Amber and Driftwood Fragrance Oil
Choose a Variant

Amber and Driftwood fragrance oil is a warm, earthy blend of sandalwood and musk. Top notes of airy ozone and a hint of citrus open up to a sandalwood core that’s smoothed out with lightly sweet benzoin. Resinous amber and cedar blend with dark musk and a touch of powder for a rich woodiness in the base. This fragrance is beautiful as an “everyday” scent in candles and melts, and is also a great scent to blend with other fragrances. In handmade soap and other body care products, Amber and Driftwood adds a soft but luxurious touch.

This fragrance is infused with natural essential oils, including cedar, patchouli, and clove leaf.

Blends well with: Black Coral and Moss, Egyptian Amber, Caribbean Teakwood, Santal and Coconut

Alternative branding ideas: Sandalwood and Musk

Suggested colors: Blue, Grey, Navy

We did not experience any acceleration or separation. This took quite a while to reach a light trace and was very easy to work with. We continued stick blending to a medium trace and the batter turned a bright yellow color. After 24 hours the soap had discolored to a deep mustard color. We observed that the soap reached a partial gel without insulation. The fragrance was mild but had an amazingly true woody character. After 30 days, the soap had discolored to a chocolate brown shade and the scent was unchanged. Due to the discoloration, this would be a good fragrance for a darker color palette or using some unfragranced batter to create lighter swirls.

Turns Yellow

I love the scent but it turns IGI 6006 wax yellow when the sunlight hits it. I have had to scrap all of my clear container products in this scent… wax melts in glass jars and clam shells, and candles in clear glass. SUPER disappointed by this as well as embarrassed during my first outdoor show when this happened in the matter of less than 2 hours. Also happens with Pink Sugar Crystals FO.

Surprisingly nice

This is a scent that I was unsure of what to expect from. I couldn't quite place the scent, so I asked my husband how he would describe it, and according to him is smells like an old tabaco farm. Its a great smell and I look forward to using it more.

Perfect for beard oils!!

I white label for companies and used this in a beard oil for a barber. Him and his clients absolutely love it! I see ratings on the scent in candles and soap that aren't so great but in an oil, it HITS!! I got it as a free sample but was sold the moment I opened the bottle. A winner for sure!

How do I get it smell when lit?

This scent is great right out of the bottle, but like others, I can’t get a scent out of it when lit. I did 1 oz to 16 oz wax. Any recommendations?

I absolutely love this scent. It is clean and fresh without being too Christmas tree smelling lol. It smells amazing in my mp soaps and so far the customers love it. I will be keeping this little gem for the Holidays moving forward. I love it

Uno de mis favoritos

Uno de mis aromas favoritos, porque no me empalaga, no me cansa. Le pongo 4* porque se hace amarillo ni bien le da la luz, es una pena... a mi me gustan las velas blancas, no me gusta añadirles color, pero con esta fragancia no me quedará otra opcion.

No smell

I absolutely love the smell of the oil and the candle once it was made, but it had no smell at all when I burned it. I used 1 ounce of fragrance to 1 pound of wax. Any suggestions?

Not great

This fragrance oil came as a free sample along with another purchase. I used this one to make wax melts and neither the cold or hot throw is really there. It's a pretty fragrance for sure, but what's the point if you cannot smell it?
