Bad Decision

Someone at Candle Science is making bad decisions! The black Cherry was great and the Merlot is not even close, so to say it is is a terrible false advertisement.

UNREAL! This is not even close to Black Cherry. Why are you taking the good scents away? I just looked and your discontinuing 4 more of my best sellers. This is frustrating. If it's not broke, dont fix it. VERY DISAPPOINTED

False advertising

The Black Cherry Merlot is nowhere near a substitute for this scent. They dont even smell close to each other. It is almost false advertising to say that Merlot is a replacement. I dont know why Candle Science keeps getting rid of good scents, but when customers leave, they will get the point.

You have got to be kidding me.....

Why on earth is this discontinued ??? Best Fragrance EVER..I am very upset. Just like the Sugar Cookie, 2 of my best selling fragrances GONE..

Very Disappointed. Who makes these decisions? Small business depends on companies like Candle Science, and they dump our lines without notice. I guess I'll be looking into Lone Star. Just bought some product from them for this very reason. I can't build my business with a company that will kill my product line on a whim. I have dumped close to a grand with Candle Science this week alone.

So sad to see this discontinued! It was spot on and very strong deep black cherry that litterally spread through out my home. I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask but does anyone know of another Black Cherry that is comparable to Candle Science? Ty in advance!

Why would you all discontinued this. I’m new to candle making and this is my best seller so far! Sad face!!

Love this fragrance - it is not a light scent. You can definitely smell it when you take the lid off my container candles. Customers love it!
