One of the BEST scents. Why discontinue!!!

This by FAR was one of the best scents I have made candles out of. Why do they keep discontinuing it. Candle Science PLEASE bring this scent back into production again.

5 out of 5 Stars.

I can only echo the other reviews here in that I am so frustrated with how many fragrance oils have been discontinued lately and replaced by scents that, IMO, don't come close to comparing. This scent is one of my TOP SELLERS-- I wish there was a better process for notifying your repeat customers of fragrance oil discontinuations rather than having to find out when I'm going to order more!!! Please please consider bringing this scent back!!!

This fragrance is used in one of my bestsellers so I'm quite disappointed to see it's being replaced ... but this has been happening a lot recently with CS fo's so I'm not even surprised. It's prompted me to incorporate more fragrances from other suppliers so I don't have to worry about creating a scent and then having yet another discontinuation in the future. I hope CS will start to slow down on their discontinuation/replacements and start to expand their catalog with new scents instead, as I think it's lacking in comparison with other suppliers anyway. Rating 5 stars for the fragrance because it was wonderful, a beautiful blender with tea and floral notes that I will miss.

Extremely disappointed by this move!

Candle Science needs to take into consideration the businesses they are hurting when making changes like this (all for making products safe but to replace it with Jasmine??) It's honestly unacceptable. If you can't be a reliable wholesaler then we can't continue purchasing from you.

This was one of my best sellers. Why did y’all do this to me?!

Hi! We apologize for any inconvenience this fragrance revision has caused! Our Black Currant Tea is in the process of being revised to meet our stringent safety standards to remove ingredients that would be included on the Prop 65 List. The new revised fragrance, Black Currant and Jasmine, will be available by early July and we hope you will enjoy this scent just as much if not more!

Just like Paris Black

I bought this to make a candle for my sister because she is obsessed with Harney and Sons tea, especially the Paris Black tea. This one definitely hit the mark and smelled exactly like it. I am a little sad I won't be able to get more of this scent because it was such a lovely, soft scent but I'm looking forward to smell the updated version.

I'm SO upset!

I cannot believe this scent is being discontinued and replaced with jasmine. This was probably the best blend you guys ever created. It was the perfect mix of floral without it being "flower-y". Really disappointed in this decision and hope that you guys will rethink getting rid of this scent. I know you guys are always looking to make your scents better and add to your wide collection, but I truly believe this was a poor move. I'm only giving this review 5 stars because the way this fragrance was before was top notch. Please bring this scent back. A lot of customers are going to be so disappointed...

I can’t believe It

I cannot believe this is being discontinued. And by something with Jasmine?! The scent I loathe. Black currant tea was SO good and one of my top sellers! I’m giving this 5 stars because I loved it and I’m sad to see it go but I’m starting to lose my faith in Candlescience as a whole. It seems you’re randomly discontinuing so many scents anymore and replacing them with versions that aren’t even close. It’s too bad.

i'm sad to see this one to be discontinued. this was the only fragrance that stood on its own without any other blends and it does so well! i ran here after getting the revamp notification to purchase more and it was all gone. i sure hope the revision is comparable.

Favorite Scent so far..!

I haven’t tested this scent out yet so I have no idea how strong it’ll be in candles and soaps and my rating is neutral! BUT, I do love how sweet, refreshing and light it is. It’s not an overwhelming FO! I bought a sample and as long as my candle testing goes well, I will be purchasing larger quantities on a regular!
