LOVE this scent!! You can definatley smell banana. I use this in the parasoy wax for candles and wax tarts. Big hit with my clients!

Big City Pearls
Love it!!

Just received my FO shipment and Banana Nut Bread is my favorite!! It's the perfect banana scent. I will definately be ordering the larger bottle very soon. You won't be disappointed.


I love the smell of this! I can’t wait to make some candles with it.

Not pleasing

This scent is just not at all what I expected. The scent makes me want to gag.

Banana Nut Bread

There is not even a little banana to this scent at all. I ordered this expecting the scent of fresh banana bread right out of the oven, and got melted butter in a skillet.

Just as Expected

I think every FO supplier has banana nut bread, the smell is very popular. This one smells just like you would think. Good hot and cold throw. Not disappointed.


I am a big baker and spend most of my time in the kitchen and this FO smells identical to pulling out a fresh hot loaf of Banana Bread from the oven!! Sweet!


I used this fragrance in IGI6006, this fragrance smells great in the bottle but doesn't give off a very good scent throw unless you are standing directly over the candle.

Nice and sweet.

When this is burning, it is a warm, sweet, banana scent w/a hint of nuttiness. It almost smells buttery at first. I don't pick up on any of the fresh baked bread part at all. Not really a bakery scent, more of a sweet scent & it is strong! It has a great cold & hot throw. I liked this one & so did everyone else!!

Jennifer B

The scent is delicious and the throw is wonderful! Goes great with yellow & brown dye

Not what I expected

Honestly it smelt like rotten bananas. I didn't smell to much of the bread. However it did sell as wax Melts, but the candles.


Really smells like bananas but I'm not getting that fresh baked nut bread from this. Also had an extremely hard time selling this one.

Finger Nail polish

This is awful I had an headache right after I smelled it. I can't believe they are passing this off as"Banana Nut"... Try again

Candle Lady

Smells just like Banana Nut Bread!!! YUMMY!

Galaxy Remedies

Not as strong as it used to be

When I had my first candle business 3 years ago, I would use 7% of this fragrance and a color chip per lb. I now use 10% FO and no color chip and this fragrance is very light. This fragrance used to fill up a room and doesn't any longer. I can't imagine why. If you have any recommendations, please let me know!

Owner - Liz Makes Scents

I used this fragrance in soy 464 1 oz to 1 lb. The scent is great, but too similar to Pumpkin Souffle. I think it could use less cinnamon and more banana.


It smells so yummy I want to eat it!!! It deff smells true to banana nut bread, will be buying more🍌😘!!!!!

Jessica Zoli

One of my favorite scents!


Banana Nut Bread is a good scent. I used it in soy and the throw was ok, not overwhelming. Will buy again


I love this scent and it sells pretty well.

The Burning Mitten
Spot on scent!

This smells just like banana nut bread!

Banana cream pie!

I made 100% soy candles using 464 with this fragrance and the results were amazing. My daughter said it smells more like banana cream pie and I agree, but it smells delicious for sure. Wonderful cold throw and above average hot throw. I would definitely recommend.

A sweet bakery bread, yes. Banana...hmm

I used this scent @ several ratios from 9%-13% in GB 444 (heated to 190° then allowed to cool to a 136° add temp, stirred constantly for a few min, removed from double boiler & stirred gently until wax cooled to 110° then poured) for wax melts. The cold throw hits all of the right notes. It's a tiny bit synthetic smelling but I don't get that from the hot throw. Something else I'm not getting from the hot throw vs the cold throw is the banana scent. It smells delicious but the banana is right on the edge of being non-existant. I'll still use it because it smells amazing. It'll just get a new name. I'm clearly getting every other note...I just wish there was a tiny bit more banana.


Smells exactly like its name. Not overly sweet, and not artificial smelling at all. Excellent cold and hot throw in soy wax. Yum!


Smells exactly like freshly baked banana nut bread!! Everyone loves it! Great seller!

Valerie K.

Smells nothing even remotely close to banana nut bread to me. Won't buy this one again.


This has become a favorite with my customers all year round.

My Heavenly Creations

Absolutely love this. The cold and hot throw are perfect and smells just like fresh banana bread right out of the oven!


This smells just like banana nut bread! It makes everyone think you have something delicious in the oven.


This scent is awesome, both cold and hot throws are amazing! Smells just like banana nut bread! I used GB464, 1oz/lb, ECO#10 wick

Smells different depending on the nose

She thinks it smells like banana's and nuts. I think it smells like Banana Laffy Taffy. We made candles and melts to gift for Christmas. Currently burning a small to medium size jar, 1oz/16oz ratio, ECO 8 wick and GB464 Soy wax. Perfect burn going on here just confused on the exact scent. 4* rating because It's not exactly Banana Nut Bread but it does smell good. I'd market it simply as Banana. Those who smell nut bread can consider it a bonus. Great products Candle Science! Blue Spruce remains our favorite and most powerful scent.

Curt Walter

OMG! This is soooo sooo good. I want to eat my tarts! Perfect blend to make the perfect banana nut bread! YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED ON THIS ONE!!!

Was Skeptical

I ordered this as a free sample. Skeptical but was very pleasantly surprised. It is one of my favorites! Hot and cold throw is wonderful. I use 4630. Will become a permanent addition to my candle line. Doesn't smell artificial. I have since ordered a large bottle.

love this

it smells amazing and I love this one very much

Accurate Banana Bread For Sure!!

I picked this as a free sample out of curiosity and I really like it a lot. It smells exactly like delicious banana bread! cold throw is nice and the hot throw is strong and travels well. Great scent.

Not my cup of tea

I was so looking forward to trying out this fragrance, especially since the Blueberry Cobbler smelled just like blueberry muffins. Unfortunately, I do not agree with the rest of the positive reviews here. I can smell the banana scent, but it is overpowered by a scent similar to burnt toast. Hoping a stronger banana sent will come along, like banana taffy or something like that.

This is great!

i honestly wouldn't have gotten this for myself but a customer of mine wanted it so i thought i would give it a try. It smells just like banana nut bread! it has a great hot and cold throw. My whole upstairs smells like fresh baked bread. I like it way more than I thought I would and my customer loves it. She has ordered it more and more. I used GB 464 11/2 oz. in 1lb. of wax.

I love this but..

I absolutely love this scent, but I'm not longer going to carry it because it isn't phthalate free. Candles science, please work with this fragrance to make it phthalate free!

Banana Nut Bread

Love this, smells awesome! I use wax 6006 and scent throw is awesome:) very happy with this scent


I LOVE this scent!!! It has a great hot and cold throw. When you first open the bottle it smell like banana candy but one you burn the candle it smells just like banana bread right out the oven. One of my favs so far.

Delicious fragrance!

I love this fragrance but wish it were phthalate free. Hope to see that soon!

Delicious fragrance!

I love this fragrance but wish it were phthalate free. Hope to see that soon!

Best Seller

All my customers fight for this one. Never sits on the shelf more than a day or so. Cold and Hot throw is wonderful using GB 464!!!!

Brandie Barfield
banana THEN bread

Cold throw I smell only bananas but when burning something wonderful happens and it smells just like banana nut bread. Only problem is my customers tend not to give it a try based on the cold throw

Great scent!

I loved this scent. Great with the soy wax!

Smells like the real thing

I use GB 464 1 oz per lb and it throws great cold and warm. Definitely on my favorite list.


I love this scent! 1 oz. per lb. of ecosoya PB and the scent is fabulous. It filled the room with scent quickly and then I could smell it throughout the house. This is another keeper!!

Banana Nut Bread

I really like this fragrance and so do my friends, will be taking this and others to a craft show soon! Ty CS!

Alisha Nelson
Wonderful Fragrance

I use golden brands 464 soy wax, and this scent was absolutely wonderful

Tiffany C.
Smells Yummy

It smells really yummy, but I am going to agree that it smells more like bananas and not much of a bread scent mixed with it.


I can barely keep it on the shelves! Has great throw and lasts a long time! Whenever I make this candle my whole shop smells like fresh baked goodness!


This was better than expected. Smells delicious and has a great cold and hot throw.

Wax used: GB 464

O.K. Scent...

I think we were expecting a smell other than just banana...It is a good banana smell, but there is no other scent ~Just Banana~

Incredible Scent

I had ordered this scent and completely forgot about it until a week ago. I had another BNB that I swore by until now. You will want to eat the candle it smells so good!!! A HOUSE filler for sure!

Another Great Scent from Candle Science

What a smell!!! Smells just like the real thing. My kids ask me when am I gonna cook things that smell that good. Definitely a keeper.

Deanna M
Best Seller

This is the best banana nut bread I've tried. No fake banana smell, very realistic. This has been my best seller since I switched.


This is absolutely the best BNB I have found. Strong cold and hot throw. Smells just like the real deal.
