We did not experience any acceleration or separation. The batter was very slow to come to trace and would be great for swirling. After 24 hours the soap was very soft. We allowed the soap to remain in the mold for five extra days. Upon removing, the soap did stick to the silicone mold, and the corners did not come out clean. The scent was strong, and we did observe signs of a partial gel with minimal insulation. The soap bars did discolor to a light brown shade. After the cure, the scent remained strong, and the bars discolored to a tan shade. Due to the soap being so soft, a water discount or paper liner may help avoid damaging the bars when removing it from the mold.

Rich fragrance for upper end line

Amazing fragrance that smells expensive. It reminds me of a Blackberry cassis with a small hint of tobacco. My customers love it and it is selling fast. I'm going to try to make it a year-round fragrance even though it's perfect for fall and the holidays

In love!

I am so in love with this scent that I've made all kinds of products with it and have ideas for lots more! I'm glad my husband likes the scent too - because this is what my house and I are going to smell like forevermore. :)

Great addition to our line of products

This scent is a crowd pleaser.

I made candles with this scent and I love them! They smell amazing and the scent filled up the whole house!

Kinda Meh.

I wasn't super impressed with this. It's got a real berry fragrance but I can't smell any trace of alcohol. Definitely was hoping for a more complex fragrance.

Smells masculine and good but....

So I was really excited to try this based off all the reviews, and the smell is very strong and nice for a more masculine scented candle-I don't find it fruity at all. However, when I went to weigh out the oil to add into the wax (I bought a 4oz bottle) I found that 1oz in weight was about 75% of my 4oz bottle. I tested my scale several times and there is nothing wrong with the scale. So I'm a bit confused since on the bottle it says that the oils are measured out by weight. Was I ripped off? Is it user error? I'm not sure, I haven't had this issue with any of the other oils before (from this company or others) so I wonder if I just got a fluke.

ALSO I recommend you go easy on the percentage with this oil-the 1oz I used has filled up my house with the scent!

We absolutely love this scent!

This is my absolute favorite fragrance from Candle Science, which says a lot as I love all of their fragrances! I hope this scent remains available year round as it is moving like crazy for me. Both the CT and HT are amazing.

Great scent

This is my new favorite. Turned out great in the candles. It will also make a great soap.


This is a beautiful smell that is both masculine and feminine. It is a quick seller for me, and while I use it for the fall, I think this could be used year round. The scent is hard to describe. It is so unique! It is a new staple of my shop.

Love this fragrance!

Great scent!

I was super excited to finally get this sample on my doorstep! I tent to dip a cotton swab in the bottle and leave it on my nightstand. This scent smells amazing! Like another review said, it definitely reminds me of Black Sea! Maybe a tad bit sweeter but they’re almost identical. Don’t think I’ll be using it as a fall scent but I can’t wait to test it!

Similar to BLACK SEA scent

Not bad but for me the smell likes BLACK SEA. I compared to both when I got this sample, it was similar to BLACK SEA. Only me..? Smell’s like that...?

Black Currant Not Absinthe

This scent isn't quite as strong as some of the others here and although it is quite pleasant, I find nothing of Absinthe in it. Everything is black currant.
I had the perfect green for it too : (
Good scent, but not what I was expecting.

Is it Fruit? Is it a Mysterious Cologne?

Or is it...BOTH. This one has a really rich aroma that is just perfect. It has a cologne element to it, but it is not overbearing, nor is it icky cosmetic counter-ish. The current is pronounced, and not at all syrupy. The absinthe gives it that upscale vibe. It reminds me of a luxurious study or library for some reason. I'd highly recommend this one. I had my reservations, but Black Current Absinthe turned out to be a pleasant surprise. I tinted my wax a deep purple/black and called it Sexy Librarian. I'm glad I ordered this--curiosity killed the cat, but satisfaction brought him back. Haha.


This is awesome. I'm not sure what absinthe or black currant smell like, so no attest to true scent, but this scent is gorgeous. It's very masculine and would be an awesome cologne.

Smells amazing in wax!

This is my second review on this lovely fragrance. I loved itvout if the bottle and thought I would return after I poured it. I use the GB 464 soy wax always and this smells amazing in my soy wax! I can’t put my finger on the Absinthe part of it but I definitely smell Amber and black currants. It’s quite lovely!
I can’t wait to burn a candle once it cures!

Complex, Upscale, Amazing!!!!!

OMG... I just fell in loooove. This is complex, bold, it's that punch of fruit I was looking for in a sophisticated way. I may have to keep this year round. Not even 24 hours and cold throw is strong in coconut soy wax. I have a feeling this will be a best seller!!!


I just received a sample pack of the NEW fragrances offered for Fall and this one in particular had peaked my interest. I’m so glad I ordered it!
It’s very different in a good way!! Smells very nice in the bottle. It’s a more sophisticated high end type scent. Very well balanced and I think it will be a perfect Fall scent!
I can’t wait to pour some candles tomorrow to try!
It’s not a substitute for Blackberry Sage per say, but I think it’s fabulous none the less!
