Amber Noir Fragrance Oil
Choose a Variant

As one of our bestselling fragrance oils (and a personal favorite of our staff!) this revision was a big one. An Amber Noir CleanScent™ replacement has been in the works for years and we refused to compromise on the characteristics that make this fragrance so good. Sweet and sensual top notes of fruity plum and citrus merge with a heart of sultry amber and jasmine, resting on base notes of musk and amyris. This iteration maintains the fragrance’s signature complex and sensual scent that makes it so well suited as a year-round luxury fragrance perfect for candles, wax melts, or bath and body products.

This fragrance oil is infused with natural essential oils, including cypress, cedarwood, patchouli, mandarine/tangerine, orange sweet, nootka tree, and davana.

Blend recommendations: Patchouli, Lavender, Neroli and White Jasmine, Lush Linen, Smoked Oud, Lemongrass and Verbena Citronella

Alternative branding ideas: Jasmine and Cedar, Amber Musk, White Citrus Blossom, Amber Cedar

Suggested colors: Light Brown, Light Yellow, Orange

We experienced slight acceleration but no separation. We had a nice light trace but with two quick pulses of the stick blender it came to a thick trace. The batter did not stiffen or thicken as we poured it into the mold. After 24 hours, the soap had discolored to a slight beige color and the scent was strong, with a more dominant spice note than the fragrance does out of the bottle. We observed that the soap had almost reached a full gel. After 30 days, the soap discolored to a tan shade and the scent remained strong and was more balanced overall. Hand stirring the fragrance in at a light trace may allow additional work time for a more detailed design.

I love, love, love this fragrance. I mixed two thirds with a third of Coconut Lime and it smells amazing! Reminds me of a day at the beach, a shower and a nap, then a night out at the Sunset Bar! I'll be calling this one Island Sunset! My customers have a new favorite soap!

Wow! Deep, rich, and exotic. Fabulous hot through. Two minutes after I lit the tester, I ordered more.

I’m really sensitive to smell so I was scared it was going to be really intense and strong but it’s literally perfect! I got it as a sample (1oz) but I’m about to order the larger size…soooooo yummy and sexy smelling

Could be my CS fave! GLAD I TRIED IT!

I can't decide if this or black currant absinthe are my fave CS scents. I also adore your Dragon's Blood. I bought this to try because it was on sale. OOB it smelled sooooo good. I had an idea of what kind of name I was going to give it, etc. Oh but let me tell you, when it hit the wax, my entire plan changed. Further, when I was pouring the samples, more ideas struck me for this scent. This is a mysterious, tempting, sultry scent. I can't understand the negative reviews at all. Put this in your wax, make it a dark color, and give it a sexy or mysterious name! I will be back to give an updated review after I burn a sample in a couple of weeks. If you like Black Currant Absinthe, you will like this one. Put your scent in at 185, leave it at that temp a few minutes, let it cool down some, pour, and don't burn your sample unless you have waited about two weeks (soy wax,) I am sure I will be back to buy more of this scent after I test the HT!

I wasn't a fan of this scent at first, but it quickly grew on me and is actually a great mixer! Warm and slightly fruity without being overpowering.

Very upset

The original FO is my number one seller of my candle collection. This new and improved fragrance oil is utter trash and most definitely not even the same scent. I think it's okay to not have EVERY single fragrance oil be considered "clean" And if you ARE going to try and improve the fragrance oil, at least stick to the same note profiles of the original scent that people fell in love with and started using for their business.
For the love of God, please listen to all of these reviews from your paying customers and bring the ORIGINAL Amber Noir BACK.

seriously, bring it back

2 bottles, 2 different scents

I couldn’t wait to try this since I LOVE amber scents, so I got the free sample size with an order I placed! I fell in love with it out of the bottle it is so sensual and warm, EXACTLY why I was looking for. On my next order I decided to get another 1 oz sample of the Amber Noir so that I could have 2 oz of it and make a large tester for myself. Well, to my surprise the 2nd 1oz bottle I received smelled entirely different and almost watered down. Some of the notes are there but it is no comparison to the first 1oz I received. Mind you I placed these orders AFTER the revision. I’m so confused as to why they are so different. I’m afraid to mix them and end up disappointed in my tester and I’m also afraid to order the normal size I buy FO (16oz) bc at $30 I would be upset if I received what I got on my last order. The inconsistency is very alarming and sad because I really want to love this FO

I am a new business owner and this fragrance right here is just beautiful. I blend with two other scents in my candle line and OMG it brings life to those candles. Im a BIG LOVER when it comes to AMBER scents and this is just gorgeous. Please DO NOT change this fragrance. It works well as a blender. By itself maybe to light. But still love it.
