This is a great smell to add to others! I don’t like it much as a stand alone fragrance, but it added the oomph I needed for the candle I was making!

This fragrance is wonderful, reminds of the pies my grandmother use to make! Great CT & HT, will definitely be a staple in my collection year around.
In my original review last year, I said that this scent had no throw for me (10% in 464). However, I just pulled out a candle I made last year - because I really, really want to love this - and WOW! The candle throws so well, and after I burned it down (it was also incorrectly wicked) I made the leftover wax into melts. Now one little melt is filling up my entire classroom and has been for the last 8 hours. I guess it just needs a bit longer of a cure time than other scents, but man I'm pleased! I'll be ordering more and pouring earlier now!
I really loved this fall scent although I was hoping for more of a sweeter approach you can definitely smell the maple but it's not enough the apple you can smell slightly and I really dont know what bourbon smells like but I love love love this fragrance its amazing.!!
I just made melts with this scent using Pillar of Bliss soy/paraffin wax. The house smells amazing! The throw is throughout the house. I will be ordering a big bottle for family and friends but if I was to sell I am sure this would be a hit!
The apple is super prominent and not too powerful like the macintosh apple I bought from CS. It really is the perfect balance of apple and sweet from the maple, with a very subtle bourbon smell (can really smell it in the bottle but not so much when burning, which I like better)
One of my favorite scents and customers love it as well:) it mixes very nicely with other scents also !
Excellent fragrance oil. Love this for the holidays and my customers do too! All the oils I purchase from Candle Science are my favs!
I order this every fall and it's always a hit! Great hot throw in my 464 at 10%.
After ordering this scent I can honestly say that I don’t know how I feel about it. If you smell it right out of the bottle it smells a little Mhmr robitussin. After using it for wax melts it smell like fruit punch.. not sure this is a hit.
I’m extremely disappointed in this FO. I ordered a 1 oz bottle a few months ago and it had zero throw. I came back and saw all the great reviews and I bought a 4 oz bottle because I thought it had to have been me who messed something up because the reviews were so great. Again, my soy/paraffin blend wax melts had ZERO cold throw and barely any hot throw. I’ve been making melts for over a year using the same method and use many other CS oils and this is the only one who has performed this way so I know it doesn’t have anything to do with the way I’m making them. Unfortunately this oil for me was a waste of money.
Oh. My. God!!! This scent is heavenly! I was a little skeptical when I opened the bottle, but after making my candles, I couldn't be happier. It smells like walking through an apple orchard in October, I wish I had gotten a bigger bottle! I will definitely be buying again.
Very unique fragrance, I LOVE IT. One of my best sellers, most people who pick up our Apple Maple Bourbon candle love it. Please never discontinue.
This is by far one of my customers' favorites!
I have ordered many fragrances from other companies and NONE have even come close to.the strength and price of candlescience fragrances! I ran sold out in the first day and many customers are asking for more! I would recommend the banana nut bread and blueberry cheesecake also! Will be ordering again!
This scent is amazing!!
Why isn't it soap safe anymore?
Please change it back so I can put it in soap 😪
Loved this scent and so do my customers. Sad on that the 1st bottle I bought says its save for soap with the %
thats save ;but when I went to reorder this one it says its not save for soap anymore.
This is such a great scent. Everyone Loves this scent. The apples and the bourbon smell are soo good.
I have had an amazing turnout with this. CT and HT are outstanding. I had a client buy this one, get home, unwrap and raveeee about it. When I light it, I may not notice the scent right away. But when I walk out of the room and walk back in, BOOM, there she is. GET IT
I bought this fo to add to my Christmas holiday line and it was a winner. It has a great HT and CT. I may just add this to my line as a year round scent as my customers love it that much.
This FO is amazing!! I used it in 444, 10% load, ECO 14 wicks. My entire house smelled like fall. To me the smell is like a warm apple pie. Highly recommend
This smells wonderful! I did have to use a bit more to achieve a great hot throw in soy wax melts but it was worth it. I will be purchasing this again.
AMB for short. Wonderful CT and HT 8% 444 wax. Very Very strong maple as predominant scent. Gave as gifts to female and male colleagues. Everyone loved it. I am going to try to blend with more bourbon.
this smell smells delicious and men love it! it's the smell of bourbon with the sweetness it just all works out really well together! it smells really delicious, almost like you want to eat it not really sweet though but more of like a sugary Brown I don't know but it's amazing lol
I used .5fl oz. in 1 lb. of Stephenson's Goat's Milk base along with some vibrant green dye. Everything looked great when I poured it into the molds. At 24 hours the edges of the soap were brown, and a couple days later, the bars are completely brown. The scent is a lovely bright apple scent, I'm just disappointed in the color change. Oh well, now I know.
I absolutely love this store! I can't stop buying. lol. This fragrance is awesome. My customers love it, and so do I. I hope this is not just a seasonal fragrance.
This scent has broke me...I have tried so many times to get a cold and hot throw from this fragrance with my candles. I just have given up, I have lost was and fragrance I have called and gotten assistance to no avail....I won't buy this scent again.
Hi! Thanks for reaching out so we could help with this!
Love this scent! We mixed it with pomegranate cider for one of our fall scents and it was amazing. Customers really loved it. I like this scent all on its own as well but it blends beautifully.
I used 10% in my custom blend of paraffin and soy and after four days of curing, the HT is amazing. I can smell it throughout the entire living section of my one-story home. It smells like a complex treat of baked apple deliciousness!
I wasn’t a super fan of the scent out of the bottle, but once it cured and I burned it, it was wonderful. I’ve already sold out so I bought a 16oz bottle for the holidays.
This was such a great buy. I named the line Evil Queens Brew and my customers loved it! I made wax melts, whipped soap and butters with this and it was a hit. Please don’t ever change or discontinue it! I will be buying it for as long as you carry it!!
There was no throw at all with this. I tried a bunch of different methods to get this to work with my 415-45 wax. The reviews made me buy it, but I wont buy it again. I don't get it.
Hi! We're happy to have helped troubleshoot this for you!
After seeing all the GREAT reviews, I HAD to order this and give it a try! Unfortunately, I don't have any hot throw at all with this. I used 10% in GB464, 9 oz salsa jar with Eco 10 wick, and let cure for two weeks. The cold throw is delightfully yummy, but I've lit it twice with no hot throw. I hope it turns out better for y'all in soap! I guess I'll just use the rest in melts at 12% and give them away. On to the next scent.....
Thanks so much for leaving your review! A member of our Support team has reached out to better assist you!
I absolutely love this scent. One of my favorites.
The hot throw is too synthetic. I feel like I'm breathing in melted plastic. People buy it, but I haven't heard anything amazing about it feedback wise, and don't like burning it in my own home. I wouldn't buy this again.
Oh boy. I should have re-read the reviews before I soaped with this FO. Man. Fast acceleration is an understatement. I had my CP soap batter at thin trace. I was planning on an in the pot swirl and making some smaller novelty soaps. I added the FO and my soap batter went from thin to thick trace in less than 30 seconds. I still did some sort of swirl. I spooned the batter into the individual silicone molds and cross my fingers. I am expecting air pockets and soaps that will be staying with my family. My daughter and I whacked the silicone molds against the counter as best we could to get rid of air bubbles. The scent is a very pretty apple scent with a hint of maple. I don’t smell much bourbon. I will try this scent again but one color and in a loaf.
Beautiful Apple scent. I do not smell the maple or bourbon. Just smells like Apples but it's very good. I used the 415 soy.
This scent (so far) is by far my favorite scent. I love it!
I was really excited to try this one out. It didn't smell strong as I was making the candles. I used 10% in 6006 and I let it cure for 2 wks. I couldn't smell anything. Usually my husband can smell the candles as he walks through the door and he didn't. Made me sad. So I don't know if it was just a bad batch or if it was just me. Its been an unlucky week though. I had received a order and one of the fragrances had leaked. I think it may have been the sample not 100% sure, but I'm not worried about it. The packing peanuts saved my wax and others in the box!
I read all the reviews that talked about how fast this FO accelerated and it does; however, I had no trouble working with it because I prepared for it to be a fast mover. I work with a few different FO’s that are really fast movers so if you plan for it to go fast you can still use it with no trouble. It smells so divine that I am willing to work with it! It has been a best seller and I’m about to make my third batch that is my second big slab. This is now on my regular soap menu and the candles I made with it sold out every time. I am about to place another order for more. I LOVE it!!
Smell delicious, but... The FO accelerates so fast! Really fast I was doing 3 layers and I didn’t have enough time to put the second layer!
This FO is one of out favorite and best seller!!!! OMG
Tried this one for the first time this year...OMG. So great!! A customer favorite and my new fall favorite!! Captures the exact smell of apples, maple and bourbon!
I love this fragrance oob and in candles. After having reading other c.p soapmakers bad experiences with this fragrance, I choose to reduce the amount I use by 25%, however, the end result is soap that is very strong in fragrance, and a beautiful antique oak color. It did not cause any issues with acceleration, ricing nor pooling of the f.o.on the surface nor inside the soap material. I will purchase it again for candles, reducing the volume per pound of wax and will keep the 25% reduction in soap. My plan it to sell these as a packaged gift set, along with a hand woven towel.
I really wasn’t expecting to like this, but WOAH this smells AMAZING out of the bottle. It’s very sweet and mouth watering. After I made the candles, the scent smells more like sugary apples with vanilla and some spices. It’s a beautiful smell, but the fragrance oil itself smells better. Very beautiful. I was pleased by it. You will not be disappointed.
This is actually one of my favorites . This is one of the more stronger scents that I have used and it fills the room really quick .
Great apple and fall scent. It is hard for me to notice the other notes (cinnamon, bourbon, etc.) in 464. I've been experimenting with several (20+) fragrances in 464 and this one has one of the better HTs.
This is a perfect warm scent for fall and winter. What's better than apples and bourbon? I use 10% fragrance load in 464GB. It's a fan fave.
I cannot over with this FO, it´s amazing one, I´ll make this one, around all year fragrance. I´m obsssesed about it
Scent is very realistic to the name smells like apple with a touch of molasses,have not tested the hot throw but cold throw is amazing so far😍
I purchased this for CP soap but I didn't read the soap reviews. After reading the review and decided to try and add a little FO at a time with my CP design. Nope! The FO accelerates so fast... I had to rethink the design super quick. I divided my soap batter, red (turned a little pink) and natural/gold, added the FO, stick blended for a second.... did in the pot swirl and into the mold all within 30 seconds. I used 3% as suggested. I hope it turns out!
Definitely my favorite scent ever! It’s the perfect fall scent.
This scent is awesome! I have been comparing scents from a handful of companies. Candle Science has the strongest fragrances that I have found.
I made a batch of CP soap despite no info in the product sheet here. I really wish CS would test and post about every fragrance. Another reviewer warned of acceleration and woah were they correct. It sped up so bad my soap was full of holes. I added a red mica colorant and the outside of the loaf was fine, and a nice burgundy. However, it marbled and looks like raw meat inside. No one will buy all this soap I made that looks like raw meat. I'll use the rest only in candles.
Took a chance and really surprised how much I liked it. Used at 10% in soy candle. I smell a fruity top note with a subtle bourbon. Very nice!
I was surprised to see how strong yet lovely this scent is. It is my husbands favorite. My customers can't get enough. Already put in another order.
A perfect crisp apple scent. The apple does smell like fresh crisp apples with a hint of something. I do love this I just wish there was a little more of the maple and bourbon. Don't get me wrong, those scents are there, I just wish there was a little more. It is still a 5 star in my opinion.
LOVE this blend. Smells so so good and has great throw, hot and cold. I do sell this year round but it does exceptionally well during fall and winter.
I love this apples and maple bourbon FO! It's one of my top sellers! Has an amazing cold and hot throw!!!
I don't know what it is, but every scent that I find that's 'a whisky' always just smells like burnt dirt. I get that some scotches have a peaty smell and taste but that's peat and is drastically different from what I end up finding. This is not really any different. It's like no one making scents has ever smelled whisky. Anyway, the burnt dirt in this one overpowers the apples and I can barely smell the maple. As a whisky lover myself, I certainly won't be using this one.
Customers love this so yummy!
It's delicious, smooth, with a little kick. Perfect all-year scent. A shop favorite!
Good throw hot and cold. Used 6% FO in 6oz tins and this oil gave a really nice finish once the candles had cooled down and went for curing.
I got this as a sample and made a small candle for myself. It hasn’t been lit very long, but the smell is amazing. I think this would be a fabulous Fall scent. I smell mostly a nice apple smell...maybe a green Apple. Cold and hot throw seem to be doing very well in the 464 soy wax I used at 10%. I will definitely reorder to make more for Fall.
I used this fragrance oil for a candle and the hot throw is AMAZING
Excellent Hot&Cold throw.
This is a strong whole house fragrance you can feel confident in this one.
My batch; 464 wax 6-12oz jars (72oz wax)
candles;Good at one week cure.
Melts; Super strong at 2days
I use this in 464 soy, my customers and I both love it. The throw is not to strong, not to light, its just right and perfect for fall! Definitely keeping this one in stock.
Yes, Yes. YES! Such a strong amazing scent. I will be buying again. Works great in my soy candles.
I use Apple and Maple Bourbon with 444. I get an excellent hot and cold throw. I took a chance on this fragrance as I had no idea how well it would present. I have to say, I am glad I created candles with this scent. So amazing, it will be a staple in my candle company line up for fall and winter!
This fragrance smells SO good out of the bottle, and just as good in cold and hot processed (as liquid) soaps. Also amazing in wax melts and bath bombs. Wow! Best seller for me!
I mixed it 10 percent in 444 and it threw very well. But I do wish it had more of a sweet maple smell. The Apple in this mostly took over the other scents.
I used this in a layered design using my standard cold process recipe, and found it to make my soap batter accelerate almost immediately. I was pushing the first layer into the mold when I realized the issue, thankfully I'd only put the fragrance oil in the second layer (and not the remaining two). Because of this I could watch the acceleration in my fluid batter as I added it from layer to layer... I was literally slapping it into the mold. I'm fine with the more rustic look but I don't think it's really worth working with in CP soap.
I bought this based on the reviews and the scent is lovely (hence the two stars) -- I enjoy apple scents and this is a nicely balanced one -- but I think one should stick to candles! One star because I really wish that Candle Science would test their fragrances in soaps as well and post any issues. Just because a scent is "safe" to use doesn't mean it's usable. Adding my review because this sort of information is helpful for others. The bar has a lot of craggy air bubbles even after slamming the container down repeatedly. Waited a few days after soaping to comment to see if there was any discoloration - so far none in my lighter layers, so I'm guessing it'll be fine.
This fragrance is exactly as advertised. Notes of baked apples, maple syrup and a bit of bourbon make up a fall/winter scent that won't fail. The blend could easily be named specifically after one of the notes, or a more generic name like "Home for the Holidays". Great hot throw in soy. Something a little different than your usual overly spiced holiday blends.
Smells amazing! Can't wait to use it in my soap donuts!
Tried this scent based on the reviews and fell in love.
It really does smell like apples and maple....maybe some bourbon too? I get a slight buttery note to it like bourbon. I think people will really love this for a fall scent and it has great hot throw. I used 464 in 4oz tins with ECO 8 wicks, soy color flakes, and 2oz/lb FO.
This has the best cold and hot throw out of any fragrance oil I've used. It's a great fall fragrance and I'm happy I tried it.
This fragrance oil smells just like the name its sweet, but not too much. Fragrance oil reminded me of the country side.
This scent is absolutely amazing and smells just like apple and maple bourbon! I just placed another order today.
This is AMAZING!!! It's hard to describe. It starts with fresh apple followed by just a hint of maplely orange and rounded off with a perfect mixture of sweet bourbon and a light vanilla. It's PERFECTION!!! I predict this will be a top seller year round!
Out of bottle this smells amazing! Like mouth watering drool amazing! I make wax melts along with soap and bath and body products. I don't know what I want to use it in first. I really think it will be a fall hit in wax melts though. If you are on the fence with this, just do it. You won't be disappointed!
Love Love Love this scent it has great scent throw. my co owrkers love it and so does my family.
This scent is so awesome. You get the apples first, followed by the sweet notes and the bourbon. It cured in that soy wax that takes forever in 10 days.
This fragrance is spot on for a fresh, crisp apple scent! I mixed it with a caramel fragrance oil too for the perfect candy apple scent.
The quality of this scent is top shelf
I love this fragrance and customers do too. It’s one of my top sellers.
This is an amazing scent,very happy with the performance in the IGI 6006 wax,filled the house with its great smell.
