I love this fragrance! I didn't know what to expect when I first bought it many years ago, but it was instantly one of my favorites. I find it a little polarizing - but the people who love it *really* love it, and always come back for more!


not strong at all

Best scent ever!

My #1 seller! I've never loved a scent a more.

Smells amazing

I got this scent as a free 1 oz. sample and was not sure with the scent from the bottle. I mixed with with a tsp of Vanilla and this is has been my new best seller. It has a sweet and musky scent and I will certainly be buying more of this scent.

Cold Processed Soap Winner

I make a lot of soap. My husband tries out every scent. He says this is his favorite out of all of the soaps that I've made. I don't know how it works in soy wax melts, but I know it is awesome in soap. This fragrance does turn dark brown in soap if you don't use a vanilla color stabilizer. This is just a cosmetic issue. This is a fantastic scent that I will definitely buy it again.

Barely any hot throw

This is more floral & fruity, I didn't smell the tea. The cold throw is nice but not great. When lit, I hardly smell anything at all. I get a slight whiff if I walk past it quickly, but other than that, nothing.
I like strong scents and this one is just too light for me -- might be nice for someone who wants a soft scent, though.
For reference -- I used 2% in GB464.


I was hoping for something a little more herbal in scent - this is more fruity than herbal. I can tell that some people are going to LOVE this scent - people who like fruity scents. As far as hot and cold throw, I can't complain - it is nice and strong - I just don't *love* the scent.

Love the smell but the hot throw is just too delicate ... Can't really smell much when it's lit

Love this fresh, clean scent.

LOVE it- it's such a relaxing scent! Not too floral, not too fruity, just a perfectly smooth balance. Nothing artificial. I've only used it in soap so far, can't wait to try it in wax.

Like it alot!

I received this as a free sample. Love it. I can smell the Black Currant. Not much of the tea but no matter. It is a great scent. My customers will love it. I will order this again.

Very Nice Scent

I was expecting it to smell like a strong black tea scent. I don't smell any tea but it does have a nice oriental type scent, a hint of tea. It's a very nice scent. Not too strong, just right for my customers that don't like super strong scents. Will be adding this scent to my fragrance list thanks!

Love It! Very Unique

This has a fresh and fruity combination going on, which I really love! The scent is fruity without being very sweet or cloying. I don't smell a tea scent at all in this scent though. I have both the white tea and white tea and berries FO from CS and they smell nothing alike. But I can smell the tea scent in those. Either way I still really enjoy this pleasant lite and fruity scent. The hot throw is pretty strong in GB464 and the cold throw is just delicious! Keeper for me!

Not crazy about it, but some of my customers like it

Personally, I don't get the tea smell, I get more of a fresh smell and so I think it throws me off. But other than that, it's alright. Some of my customers like it.


This is a very nice scent, but could use a little more tea fragrance.

Fruity and clean

I thought this fragrance had enough of a fruity smell without being "sweet", it is very popular with my family and has a refreshing tea overtone. One of my favorites, spa-like in my opinion. Excellent for massage.

To Each her own

All I smell is white tea, but others fell for this scent immediaely. I sold all the candles I made, and have orders for more.


I expected some black currant scent in what was described as a scent with floral overtones. Instead, it smells like a light tea with a light floral scent. Nothing fruity, no black currant scent.
