Sickly sweet

Over powering and too sweet. I may have used too much but I added a lemon scent to it and it helped balance the strong sweet note. Definitely will use this mix again.

Was worried at first when I put it in wax, but it smells amazing!

I loved this scent ootb but when I first mixed it in the wax I wasn't a huge fan of what was coming out. HOWEVER now that it's burning in my office I love it! And it has a GREAT throw in 6006! I'm burning it in my office right now and one of my coworkers just walked into the building, and immediately said "Oh my gosh it smells amazing in here!" Haha! Defintely does smell a bit different in wax and once it's burning than it does OOTB. You get more "tart" raspberry once it's in wax. But it's super good and can't wait to add this to my summer collection!

Smells like…

It smells exactly how you’d expect, like black raspberry and vanilla. A bit sickly sweet.

Revising last review

I wasn’t aware this must’ve been reformulated and didn’t have vanillan in it before cause it never discolored. I apologize to the person who asked for report on how well it behaves because now I don’t know. I took stars away for the vanillan. It disappoints me

One of my best sellers

This behaves beautifully in CP soap. I make goats milk soap and doesn’t accelerate or rice and no discoloration that I’m aware of. I color my soap raspberry pink and purple so I can’t tell if there’s any discoloring to yellow or any weird colors, but no tanning or browning. I can’t keep any products I make with this on the shelf for very long and I even get custom orders with it. Buy it! You won’t regret it!

I need info on the soap, discolor? acceleration? Anyone?

Can a soaper please tell me if it discolors or accelerates? TY, OOB smells great, fresh fruit forward. Waiting to try it in soap and lotions.

Hello! Thank you for taking the time to write this review. We're working on getting cold process performance notes for this fragrance, but in the meantime we'd be happy to share what we've seen from customers. Overall, the soap batter behaves well, with minimal acceleration and no reports of separation. However, the fragrance does discolor soaps because the high vanillin content. We hope this helps! A member of our Customer Support team is reaching out to provide some more information.

Don’t judge out the bottle

I wasn’t a huge fan of this straight out the bottle and was nervous to use it but now that it’s actually in a soap I like it way more! It behaved beautifully in my soap batter too and was a dream to work with!

Perfect Combination!

Please don't change or discontinue this fragrance! It's a favorite of my customers because it's the perfect blend of berries and creamy vanilla. A beautiful spring and summer fragrance!

I can’t really smell it!

I have very sensitive smell and can smell everything and I can barely smell this fragrance! Not a fan of this smell. I go for really strong scents! This scent barely can smell anything and it smells like sugar!

Absolutely LOVE this one! I used it in soap....very strong scent....Really love love it. Probably my favorite along with lavender. Will definitely buy more. Have bought from other places but does NOT smell as good as Candle Science's does. Love it
