Black Cherry Merlot Fragrance Oil

Black Cherry Merlot is a boozy, sophisticated twist to the classic black cherry. Top notes of black currant and apple brighten the red wine and black cherry heart of this fragrance oil. Aged oak and amber base notes highlight the merlot, while vanilla balances the sweet finish. Patchouli and nutmeg essential oils enhance the wood and spice notes for added depth. Deep, dark, and luscious, Black Cherry Merlot adds beauty to wax melts, tarts, and candles. Reed diffusers evoke the distinct aromas of a wine cellar, while homemade bath and body products bring a fruity sweetness to any washroom.

This fragrance oil is infused with natural essential oils, including patchouli, nutmeg, and davana.

Note: Black Cherry Merlot 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.

Blends well with: Cashmere Plum, Almond Macaron

Alternative branding ideas: Merry Merlot, Full Bodied, Uncorked 

Suggested Colors: Burgundy, Deep Red

Great Fragrance Oil

I love this fragrance oil. It is one of my favorites and best seller! I fell in love with it four years ago and have been using it ever since. I use the fragrance oil in coconut wax, and I also used it in my gel wax originally and it did well there too. It has an excellent cold and hot scent throw. I've purchased this fragrance oil multiple times.

Sweet Scent
Fragrant Offering Candles 2024-05-22

Smells like candy! Not my favorite but my 27 year old daughter loves it. It has a very strong hot and cold throw for soy and coconut wax candles. If you want a strong sweet smell, this is it.

Doesn’t smell that great. Didn’t perform well in my coconut wax as well.

Very Nice

I wish nobody did OOB reviews, or that you could somehow separate them from the rest. I know getting a CandleScience box in the mail with all these awesome oils creates excitement that needs to be shared... but oob is worthless. Case in point; some thought this oil was like cough syrup... it is nothing like that. At least, not in its application. To my nose, it is a wonderful black cherry that isn't sharp. It is a lingering type of scent... reminds me, just a tiny bit, of incense too. Very lovely... no fake or chemical smell. <3
