Apple Peppercorn is a tart, crisp fragrance with an intriguing balance between peppery, green, and fruity notes. This scent offers a unique aromatic experience as it opens with fresh top notes of green leaves and green floral, then gives way to a heart of apple, pear, and peppercorn. Base notes of spice, light musk, and nutmeg lend an earthy depth without taking away from the fresh brightness of this unexpected fragrance.

Fruit-forward fragrances can often come across as quite sweet and commercial, but Apple Peppercorn offers a different take on a fruit fragrance. Its crisp, peppery character is ideal for natural and botanical focused lines, or anyone looking for a unique offering for their spring and summer collections.

This fragrance is infused with natural essential oils including palmarosa, clary sage, lavandin, lemongrass, orange, carrot, chamomile, and mate.

Blends well with: Peppercorn Pomander, Brandied Pear, Cinnamon Stick

Alternative branding ideas: Apple and Ivy, Apples and Herbs, Sungold and Ivy

We did not experience any acceleration or separation. The oils and water were slow to come to an emulsion and it took a little longer than usual for us to reach a light trace. The batter poured easily and smoothly into the mold. After 24 hours, we observed the soap had only reached a partial gel through the center of the loaf and there was no discoloration. The scent was overwhelmingly strong and could potentially be used at 3% to keep a strong scent that won’t take over your entire workspace. After 30 days, there was no discoloration and the scent was still very strong. This fragrance would be ideal for colorful designs that require a light trace for an extended amount of time.

Don't judge OOB

Out of the bottle, this fragrance is very peppery. You mainly only smell the peppercorn. Using a fragrance blotter and using in product, the fragrance really is completely different. Looking at the not so great reviews, most of them are probably judging from OOB.
The fragrance is called apple peppercorn, so it is obvious to expect the peppercorn notes. This fragrance will be a great blender for anything you want to add a little spice to, or alone for a very unique fragrance.


Soap & candle maker

I am not a fan of this scent the pepper scent overpowers the apples in my opinion.

Don't judge until after you've made your apple peppercorn candle...

I've lived by the philosophy of never placing bad judgement on a FO straight out of the bottle ever since I made a CS Blueberry Cobbler candle and this one is definitely a testament to that. OOTB, its super peppery and I can see why people would be offput by that (similar to how sweet orange and sriracha is OOTB) but you cannot throw bad judgement on this one until you've tried this in wax. In wax, it is more apple-y and fresh than peppercorn. The CT is more peppercorn than the HT in my personal opinion but it is still a nice balance between fruit and spice. I would definitely consider adding this to my fall collection!


Earthy + Unique

A lot earthier than I expected....I get notes of cucumber out of this. I would definitely be naming it something else but I think it's unique and with the right branding could be a good garden scent.


I was very interested and looking forward to this scent. Has the sweet and crisp scent of an apple but an overpowering peppery tone, just expected a little more. :(



Truly smells like apples and pepper, if that’s what you’re looking for then look no further. I definitely prefer Apple Harvest and Macintosh Apple if you’re wanting an apple scent


interesting scent!

this one turned out to be more interesting that the name suggests -- if you're into savory stuff like the tomato leaf scent this one would be for you. I enjoy it, but for me personally I feel like I could get tired of it after a few hours. Could be a fun blender in fall and winter -- I made my boyfriend smell it OOTB blindly and he immediately said "sweet pepper jam?"
