We did not experience any acceleration or separation. The oils and water were slow to come to an emulsion and it took a little longer than usual for us to reach a light trace. After 24 hours, we observed the soap had only reached a partial gel and the bars were discolored to a light tan. The scent was strong. After 30 days, the soap remained a light tan shade. The scent had faded slightly but remained pleasantly strong. The discoloration could easily be decreased by using titanium dioxide to whiten the soap. This fragrance would be ideal for a design that requires a light trace for an extended period of time.

Smells like a man (in a good way!)

This is such a beautiful scent. Smells like a sexy men's cologne. Very intoxicating. I've only used it in wax melts so far but plan to use it in candles and room sprays soon!

Nicole (Mainely Scents)

This fragrance is everything!!!

Sophisticated, sweet and flowery, strong but not overpowering. Amazing OOB


Beautifully done fragrance

Words can't express how amazing this scent is. Its so clean and not over powering with musk. Its simple clean fresh and to the point. This is a very nice scent.


Amazing cold throw but not so much hot throw

I loved this scent when I smelled it out of the bottle. It was even better once I had it mixing with the wax, my whole apartment smelled so inviting. That cold throw is def remarkable. I let the candles cure for about 2 weeks and the results were horrible. The scent throw is extremely light, my customers were extremely disappointed. My first attempt was using it with 464 soy wax. I then tried it with GI 6006 SOY/PARAFFIN BLEND and got the same exact results. I decided to try different wicks because I really wanted the scent to work and that still failed. I tried ECO, HTP & CD wicks, all 3 failed. I also considered using a different container, so I went from a glass tumbler jar to a tin can. Y'all, still nothing :( . My clients have requested for me to work on it and bring it back lol and I wish I could explain that every fragrance is just different. Candle science has been my go to for some years not but some of their scents are very hit or miss. I have product just sitting in on my shelves that I have to consider and pure waste, because I JUST CAN'T sell them. All in all still gave it two stars because 7/10 of my candle science fragrances that I have tried have been pretty good. I do not want readers to not have confidence in the brand, just not this scent. Please please please fix this scent.


Top Seller Men's Scent

Love love love this one. Perfect masculine scent. Performs well in MP. It flies off the shelves every time.

Number 1 seller

Can’t keep this on the shelf number seller.

Pam Flood

This was a hit for my CP soap! I cannot get enough of it!


Black Coral & Moss

I am so in love with this scent, inviting, mistrious, will keep you wondering. Can't wait until the 16oz is available again.


Never smelled anything like this before!! AMAZING

So I ordered this FO and my daughter was the first one to smell it and she loved it! Once I smelled it I knew right away this was going to make an amazing candle for my male customers. It is very refreshing, sexy and masculine but yet somewhat feminine. I love it!! Candle Science FO's are the best that I have tried so far for my candles. Will be ordering more.

Favorite New Scent

I ordered this scent on a whim, didn't really know what to expect. It has become a favorite in my line. I have used it in wax melts and soy candles so far and the scent through is wonderful, both cold and hot. I am looking forward to incorporating it into a soap recipe.

Pam Bowen

In love with this scent!

I've always loved that masculine cologne type scent. This hits all the right spots for me for that! I love it. It puts of great CT and HT in my 100% Soy Candles and does even better in my Soy wax melts! This one stays on the books for me! I'm putting more in my cart as we speak!


So strong

I first bought this to see if I could use it as a replacement for another fragrance that the HT is too weak.

I added about 9% or 10% fragrance load to the candle and the Scent throw (both HT and CT) are incredibly strong. If I use it as a replacement fragrance I may go down in scent load. It kind of gave me a headache at that percentage that I had. Although maybe some people won't mind that it's so strong.

My boyfriend didn't like this fragrance out of the bottle, but he seemed to really like it once it was in Althea candle. He said it was Ozone-y and maybe a little Woodsy.

The fragrance itself smelled good. It is definitely a more masculine, cologne type fragrance. It may not fit as a replacement for my product line, but I may add it to a men's lines, or something like that. Or I may add Fireside and see it it will blend well with the other fragrances in my product line.

smells great

It smells great! Smells like cologne and is my most poplar scent!



Love Black Coral and moss

I tried this scent out and was very pleased. I made with pillar wax (soy and paraffin)and used in a wax tart. After curing for 5 days it was time to test and was I pleasantly surprised. The cold throw was great but the hot throw was amazing. It has the scent of an expensive cologne. My wife came downstairs and actually thought I had used a new cologne on myself. I told her it was the melt and she said that this scent must be added to my line of wax melts. Happy wife happy life. Great job Candlescience. I'll be ordering a much larger bottle! Thank you. R&A scented wax.

This is an update on my previous review. I poured a large batch of this at an 8% fragrance load in a 464/444 blend. I poured my FO in at 185F, stirred for a few minutes, and poured into my jars near 155F. I’m using the same technique as I always do and it never really results in any problems unless the ambient temp in the room I’m working in is low, which wasn’t the case last night. I’m guessing the FO had binding issues with my wax because it got very grainy and was pulling away from the jar in such a strange fashion. I wish I snapped a picture of it before I fixed them all. I ultimately stuck the reject candles in the oven at 170F to melt them all back down again then set them aside to cool. Now they’re looking much better but that was VERY strange to say the least, I’ve never seen it before!

Either way, my kitchen smells sooo good. I didn’t have any leaching this time and my batch is looking like it’s saved, so will I stop using this one? Absolutely not. It’s too good to give up on.


Although the scent is nice (Curve for Men) the hot throw performance is lacking, even with a 5 week cure. I started making candles 16 yrs ago, so I'm pretty well versed in trouble shooting. Even in wax melts at 15% with a 30 day cure, the hot throw is a 6/10 at best. Sad business CS. I'd much rather have Cotton Candy back.


Love this fragrance!



Disappointed! Nice OOB but HT was almost non-existent.



I was sooo excited about this scent when I received it. Its smells great OOB. I actually love the smell of mens cologne so it was a winner for me. When testing I mixed it with another fragrance initially and received a very low hot throw. It's not until I started testing both fragrances individually did I realize that I have NO Hot throw with the Black Coral and Moss. I am so disappointed because now I have a 16 oz bottle of fragrance oil that has no hot throw.


Performs beautifully in 464/444, especially after a long cure! I plan on adding these to my summer line and letting my candles and melts cure for a month before selling because the hot throw is just immaculate and the middle and base notes truly shine!

Out of the bottle, yeah sure it smells kind of like Axe/Old Spice... but never, ever trust your senses sniffing a FO out of the bottle. In the wax it smells lovely!




Owner-Novel Candle Co

This fragrance is AMAZING. It’s my absolute favorite for a masculine fragrance. Simply divine!




Disappointed! I really wanted this for Father's Day. Great OOB. HT was almost non-existent.

Hi there! I'm so sorry to hear you're having issues with your hot throw of Black Coral & Moss. A member of our team will be reaching out shortly via email to help!

Country Grove Wax Co

This is a very strong smelling FO. Smells just like the men's body sprays that you can buy from the store.

I probably could have used 50% less in my wax and still had a strong scent.


BBW Dupe?

This scent smells SOOOOO good! It's masculine amazingness and I love it! To me I think it smells like a solid dupe to the Noir scent from BBW. Keeping that in mind when I made my labels I named this scent Coral Noir. I used a blend that I custom make of 464 and coconut oil that I love to use(my candles come out perfect every time!) and was really strong. Highly recommend!

Sean Bayliss


There is a Grown Man in that bottle!

OOB, in the wax, cured for 1wk & lit that thang up! I could not smelling this fragrance when I first opened it. It smells absolutely Devine. Like a full grown, sexy, confident man w/some swag stepped out that bottle. I have it in my line & I call it Grown A88 Man & my clients love it!

Lovely subtle notes but not lacking in strength

I loved this one and plan on ordering a larger bottle. The name is pretty self explanatory of the fragrance, and it smells just as good in the bottle as in the product.



I never write reviews but i had to for this one because it's so popular and hopefully this might help someone. I loved this scent at first but after making a batch it gave me MAJOR headaches. I still love the scent of it but after a while of using it, it's like i cant wait to get away from the smell so my headache will go away. I feel like i would have to mix this with something or use a smaller percentage in order for it to not be so strong and in your face. I have to use a facemask while making this just to protect myself from the strong scent! This is a warning!



Everything about this scent is perfect!



This is by far the best smelling fragrance oil for men’s items. My Husband has always used High Tide (I make our soaps & shampoos) for his items until now! What’s High Tide!? This fragrance is strong enough for soaps, lotions, scrubs and I’m hoping candles also! Haven’t made a candle or tarts yet but I will be very soon! It reminds me of a cologne that I’ve smelt before, just can’t pin point it. Maybe Curve? The green bottle... Either way, it’s my Hubby’s new fave!

Toshia @ Tate’s Hell Treasures


I had high hopes for this one too, much like the lavender and driftwood, it is straight men's cologne… it simply smells like a men's cologne you would buy at a drug store. I'll never be able to use this and it will just sit on a shelf to spoil. I wouldn't recommend anyone purchasing it if you're looking for something better than what your high school boyfriend smelled like doused in Axe Body Spray. This is such a disappointment.


OMGGGG this scent is amazinggggg. As soon as I opened it I knew it was going to be my new favorite scent. Everyone loves it. Pleaseeee keep this scent in stock. This is going to be one of your best sellers.


Absolutely Wonderful

OMG! This scent smells amazing! I just love the masculine energy from this fragrance oil. It’s not overwhelming but JUST right! Definitely looking to purchase more once back in stock.



I got this fragrance because it looked interesting and had some good reviews.... I have to give it a WAY WOW. Way wow rating is when product exceeds expectations.



Creator, Co-owner, Linked Keys

VERY high end, masculine and sophisticated scent. This smells like an expensive men’s cologne. It is absolutely amazing!


Had such high hopes

Smells like axe body spray.


Beyond words

This is it. This is the mens fragrance line i will be featuring in my gift shop and online stores. Thank you SO MUCH CS! Ive been searching for YEARS and this issss the oneeee!!! (Going to also mix with other fragrances from CS to get what i like...but this is def going to be my big seller ♡♡♡) im already sold out and i havent even made all the product yet. ♡♡♡


Great mix

I am loving the new collection of scents! This is another strong clean, musky, manly scent.



Amazing sold out on my second day!



Smells amazing on its own, but mixed with Oakmoss and Amber it is SUPERB!


Nice masculine scent!

I should have my husband write this review actually! He said this is his favorite scent next to Black Sea! I agree it smells great. Smells better then a thought it would. I think the name of the fragrance makes it sound unappealing though.


Buy this scent!

I bought about 12 different scents and this one is hands down my favorite! I even had my husband smell it and it was also his favorite! It’s definitely a sexy masculine smell.



Thank you candle science! I LOVE this scent! I am going to market it towards men in a masculine jar but ladies like me may like it too. Reminds me of an expensive cologne.

Mandi Brown

An Old Favorite, A New Favorite

My old favorite was Mahogany Teakwood and I could never get close to it. This is my new favorite! Its perfect all the way around. High Intensity fragrance right out of the bottle. Can't wait to burn this candle and test. I'm getting total Mahogany Teakwood vibes but better!!

Rick Maloney- Pour & Penchant, Owner

love it

smells so nice and sexy. I definitely think it smells like a mix of black sea and oakmoss amber so its not completely unique but cant wait to test it. I think it would be a great addition to a masculine line



This fragrance is amazing and exactly what I was looking for in my masculine line. Please keep the masculine fragrances coming! A nice tobacco fragrance would be much appreciated also. Thanks for the always quick delivery and great customer service!

Sophia - Flame & Essence

A&F for sure!

Katie is 100% correct, this smells like walking into Abercrombie and Fitch! No complaints there! Cant wait to blend it!



There are no words for this scent... sexy, manly, fresh, clean, dark and just perfect!

Toasted Oak Candle Co.


I don't know, dreamy is what I can say for OOTB. This FO is very nice and I cannot wait to try in my candles.


This is a game changer! Love love love!


Abercrombie & Fitch

You know that scent everyone smelled & loved & were obsessed with when you walked into Abercrombie & Fitch. THIS.IS.IT!


unexpected love!

in the same boat as Black Sea, but softer and a little more gender neutral/less masculine-- can't wait to blend this with sandalwood or Egyptian amber. overall, a really pretty scent and I'm surprised by all the notes that it actually hits instead of being straight up "cologne"



this scent smells so good i can't even begin to describe. it gives me mahogany teakwood vibes, very powerful and strong. i know my customers are going to love this one. thank you candle science!!!


Candle maker

Just got my samples of all the new scents, this one smells AMAZING out of the bottle and I can’t wait to see how it does in my candles.
