Apple Peppercorn is now 50% off the listed price. The discount will be reflected in your shopping cart.

For a similar fragrance, we recommend trying a blend of Macintosh Apple and Peppercorn Pomander.

Apple Peppercorn is a tart, crisp fragrance oil with an intriguing balance between peppery, green, and fruity notes. This fragrance oil 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

Note: Apple Peppercorn is too strong out of the bottle for the fragrance notes to be in balance. It should therefore only be evaluated in a candle or personal care base.

Suggested colors: green, red, natural

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.

I first tried this scent last Dec 2022 and quite dissatisfied with the smell more peppery and less of an apple. Our customers didn't like it either so most of the candles with this scent just laid on our rack. I wouldn't like the items to go to waste so after a month, I opened one 6.8oz bottled candle for myself and VOILA! I WAS AMAZED at how it filled our 40sqm room with the sweet fragrance of the apple and no more of that peppery smell. I was really so happy with the outcome. After that, I tried to do a 50/50 blend with Cinnamon & Vanilla and it was such a bestseller with a good HT even before the 2-weeks curing time.

So sad that you will discontinue this FO. I hope you will reconsider for us who managed to find out its full potency.

Pairs well With Lime

I didn’t love the scent right out of the bottle. But I wanted to use it to make a batch of soap so I blended it with lime essential oil. It was beautiful and a hit.

However, don’t mix it with colorant. Somehow it made my red mica powder turn orange. It was very weird.

Surprising experience,

Last week I was doing inventory and found a bottle of this fragrance tucked away. I had not liked it at all and had regretted buying it. I took a sniff and to my surprise it smelled amazing. My sense of smell has been distorted since having covid almost a year ago. This fragrance is the only one of the many fragrances that I have in my shop that does not smell terrible to me now. I am relieved to have found something that smells pleasant again. It is too bad that it is discontinued.

I'm so sad this is being discontinued, it's one of my fall favorites. Guess I'll stock up for myself when I place a large order soon.
