Black Cherry Merlot Fragrance Oil
Choose a Variant

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

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

Delicious smell!

Another huge hit! Always a great smell! I have to say I truly enjoy using candle science’s fragrance oils. They have not disappointed me and they have, by far, the strongest and best smelling fragrance oils. I’ve tried a few other distributors and I’m sorry to say they don’t come close. Candle science’s fragrance oils, to me, have more of a true smell than a soapy or artificial smell. Highly recommended! Thank you Candle Science!

Deliciously sweet!

Magnificent yummy scent that definitely smells divine! We mix black cherry merlot with raspberry & birthday cake and's extra scrumptious. Long lasting smell our family enjoys!
