Hi there! We apologize for any inconvenience the discontinuation of Black Raspberry Vanilla Type may have caused you. The current version is being revised to meet our new safety standards, but it will be coming back, and we are expecting to have the revision available in late May 2021!


This is one of my best sellers! I personally love it as well. Sad to see it being discontinued. When will it be back in stock?

Hi there! A member of our team will be reaching our shortly!

I love this fragrance oil! When will this scent be back in stock?? I really need to know!

CandleScience Reply

Hi! The revised fragrance is expected to be released sometime in April 2021!


Out of the bottle this FO sorta smells like cough medicine. It not what I expected it was I smell like. I will be testing out in wax to see if my thoughts have changed.

Sade Leggett


I always make sure I re-order this oil, it's my absolute favorite. Has a very comforting smell.


No Hot Throw

I ordered this fragrance two different times. The first bottle I went through had no hot throw. The second bottle (a bigger one) also has no hot throw. I made these candles the same way and then with a different ratio and neither one worked to produce a hot throw. I used 8.5% fragrance this last time and I had no hot throw. I added the fragrance at 185 degrees and poured at 135 degrees.

Love this one

I just ordered 11 1oz bottles of oils to test out for my new candle business and first of all, I am extremely impressed with how quickly they arrived in the mail (two days early)! So far I think the Black Raspberry Vanilla is my favorite. It has a very sweet, fruity, romantic aroma to it. I can't wait to see how it smells in candle form.



I luckily got a trial size to test. To me it smells very synthetic and boring - like a raspberry candle from the grocery store, basically. It has good hot and cold throw.


This has got to be my favorite scent ever !


Couldn’t use

I could not use this FO, it gave me a headache. I purchased a 4 oz bottle and I still have it. I haven’t found a CS FO that I didn’t love until this. Besides that CS is absolutely fantastic in coustomer service and beyon. 🌸


I was excited to try this fragrance because of the reviews, but it was a mistake. It smells like cough syrup! I regret buying an 8 oz bottle and wish I can just exchange it, but due to the overpriced return costs, I have to just take the loss :(


Candle maker

Love this scent! If your seeking some berry nilla. This is your scent.


Not the best HT

Great cold throw but not the best hot throw with Soy 464 wax. I add at 180 degrees and pour at 150. I use 10% fragrance oil. The next I had to add bamboo pineapple to give it a kick.


Candle Marker

Great cold throw but not the best hot throw with Soy 464 wax. I add at 180 degrees and pour at 135. I use 6% fragrance oil.

Candle maker

I first got this scent as a sample from another company and absolutely loved it so I decided to add the FO to my CS order 'cos I thought it should be kinda the same. Well, I was wrong 'cos this scent from CS was very disappointing compared to the sample I smelled


i don't like it

I don't like it, it smells like cold medicine



I don't normally go for vanilla or super sweet scents, and for some reason I love this one. It has a strong raspberry scent with a lot of sweetness to it. It's quite strong out of the bottle and I can't wait to test it in candles!


Lovely Fragrance

My customers and I simply love this fragrance! It gives me very much date night vibes. I will be purchasing more soon!


Beautiful Fragrance

I just finished making a candle with this fragrance oil... OMG!!!! THE SMELL IS AMAZING!!! I did add an essential oil to it also, but I am getting ready to purchase 1 pound of this fragrance!!! This was a great buy!!!


Have tried this scent from several company and this is my favorite. Smells wonderful in soy candles and the scent holds very well in CP soap at 6% usage rate.


Smells Great!!!!

The FO smells fantastic, but I wish the scent was stronger.


Slightly disappointed

It smells nice, but it's not the black raspberry and vanilla I was expecting. I was hoping for something more like "berries and cream" in a way. It smells like black raspberries with a hint of vanilla, so it does what it's supposed to, perhaps I'm just used to a more vanilla-heavy version. It still makes great tarts, I'm just not getting "mouthwatering" from this FO.


This scent is amazing. I love it.


Black Raspberry Vanilla

Maybe it's just me, but I really didn't like this scent at all. I even sent it back.


This scent is great. I just wish it was a bit stronger


Owner of Candles Soy Delicious

One of my best sellers.


Perfectly Balanced

BRV is perfectly balanced. I am not a big fan of vanilla anything, and this BRV scent is just right. I will say that you can smell the BR in it but the sweet scent is definitely vanilla.

Sade A.


Will it help to add more for a stronger scent? Do u have a fragrance calculator?


Excellent sweet scent

Excellent sweet scent


Absolutely amazing

This is my second order with candle science being recently visually. Impaired I’ve been able to sense different notes than I ever noticed. Black raspberry Vanilla is absolutely amazing!! The high blackberry, raspberry notes with a hint of vanilla makes this a perfect scent wax melts I can’t wait to start making soaps and lotion this would be great in a kids line


I LOVE this

Well, unfortunate that it discolors but I work with a lot of black soap anyway. But this is the best BRV i've ever smelled, from store brand sprays and even another brands version of this scent, this is absolutely my favorite. I guess it is different from the general version of BRV, but I love it way more than those



This is such a great scent! I used it in parasoy melts and the throw has been perfect!


Discolors and very light scent

Turned my white a light tan and my purple was a muddy color of purple. Also very light in scent for the same amount I use for all fragrances


I like this scent but it's a really light scent. I wish it had a stronger hot throw. Overall, its ok.


I love this scent and so do my candle and soap customers. However, has anyone noticed floating specks on the edge of their candle? I started making dye free candles and have noticed the specks along the top edge of my candles in this scent and lemon pound cake, but not in the others I've recently made. Not sure if it's the oils or the wax.



This is a soft scent I was expecting something more fruity, balanced out by vanilla but it's not that at all more of a super soft berry scent with a hint of sweetness


Love It

We ordered this fragrance based upon reviews and it did not disappoint. My clientele prefer candles with a strong CT and HT. This fits perfectly and is one of my favs!


This scent smells great!

It is not too sweet and it is not too fruity.


Strong and on point! An absolute favorite with my customers!



Everyone loves this fragrance!

Debra Webb

Very Elegant

This scent is quite pretty! Though it is not one of my best sellers, it is one of my personal favorites. It has a relatively light throw in 464, and it smells exactly as described. It is great for a high end candle line. I plan to continue ordering this one!


Love it!

I used it at a 1oz to 1lb of soy wax and it smells soooooo good reminds me of chewy sweet tarts.


Not a favorite

Ordered this because BRV is one of my favorite scents. I buy this FO from another vendor, and L O V E the scent. I ordered this from Candlescience because it is a local company, and I can afford to order more since I don't pay shipping. That said, I won't order this again. It was NOT the same (or even similar) scent that I was used to. I used the fragrance in CP soap, and didn't experience issues, but it did darken up a bit. My daughter likes the scent, but it reminds me of a cheap bathroom deodorizer. Yuck! I had high hopes, but this one is a no-go. Bummer.


Our Customers Love It!

I compared this side by side with Bath & Body Works scent of the same name and this one is fruitier smelling. Our customers are absolutely loving it and even though we had planned on selling this just as a Spring/Summer scent I think it may become a year round fragrance.



I really liked this one.


fresh and amazing!

I used this oil in Eco-Soy Advanced. It smells very nice and fruity, without any "artificial" scent to it.
it is very clean and nice but not overly sweet.
this is a wonderful scent!!!!


One of the best so far...

I am hesitant to purchase fruity scents as they usually remind me of those rubbery scented dolls that were popular in the nineties, but this smells great. I agree with the other review, the scent is amazing but not artificial. It reminds me of a blackberry jam cooking. Really great. The vanilla is subtle but balances it out so well. Love this!

Tiffany Gonzales


I read the reviews before ordering a sample of this scent, and now wished I had ordered a bigger size. I sold out in one day. Customers loved, loved, loved the fragrance. Used these in para-soy blend wax and the scent throw both hot and cold is wonderful. Smells just as good in the bottle as it did when I made my tarts. Definitely ordering a larger size of this.

Kewl Crafts

Black Raspberry Vanilla... WOW

WOW...WOW... AND AGAIN WOW... I just received this as a free sample in my order.... WOW... I opened the box and the scent jumped right at me... And it is absolutely amazing!!! I can't wait to make some candles with this one... My new favorite!! I'll report back after I make a batch... Going for a bigger bottle next order..



The raspberry and vanilla blend together to create (for me at least) a grape scent, which I really love. Lasts a long time in my oil burner and mixes well with a drop of rose or plumeria.


Definite vanilla undertones

After reading the other reviews, I was expecting more of a jam-like scent to this, but it really does have a vanilla undertone that sometimes comes across as a little plasticky. If you've ever tried it, this smells identical to a Bath and Body Works scent called "Festive Vanilla Fig" from several winters ago. The fragrance oil smells true to its OOTB form and throws beautifully.


Very Strong

While I like this scent it is very strong. I used 6% fragrance in 464 soy. The cold throw was good the hot throw was a bit overwhelming. I will dial back a bit on this scent next time I use it, but overall very good!



I use this fragrance oil in a salt scrub, and it is AMAZING. Yes, it smells like black raspberries and vanilla, and it's very strong (I smell like it all day long when I use the scrub) but it also makes me think of cotton candy!


Love this

This has quickly become a customer favorite. It smells great and has a very strong hot throw. I'd highly recommend this for those that prefer stronger scents.

Tas ha

Great Fragrance

I really like this fragrance. I used 1 oz. per lb with purple dye chips and 464 Soy wax. Lovely smell.


wonderful scent

This is one of my favorite scents but I am no getting a hot throw! Any suggestions?


Owner bath and body

I don’t care for fruity scents but this one is deeeee lish! Beautiful!


yummy yummy

I love this scent, as do my customers! Great throw!


100% Recommendable

Isela Silva

Customer Favorite!

The scent on this one is strong. I use 1 oz per pound of wax. My customers love this one and pretty much sell out every show. Highly recommend!

Radiant Soap

Love it.

I got this as a sample and used it for wax warmers. I am so in love with this scent. It smells delicious.


Discolored in CP Soap

Read the reviews and some said there were no discoloration in CPsoap making. This wasn't the fact for my batch. The scent turned my soap a bumble bee yellow and even ate some of my colorants. Smells good though



This is such a great Black Raspberry scent! The vanilla in the background rounds out the tartness of the Black Raspberry to make a lovely smell.Used in 464 Soy Wax at 1oz/1lb, nice strong cold throw, waiting on cure times to determine hot throw.


Black Raspberry

Smells like sweet candy. not the best toooooooo sweeeeeeett!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Used as part of a Blend in CP. No acceleration or discoloration- keep in mind it was a custom blend.
After pour my CP had a "candy" overtone that thankfully died down a bit. It has held well. A great scent for the younger crowd but not quite that fresh berry I would prefer. The scent does seem to "wash off" leaving a bare sweetness, but many of the people I share my soaps with are perfume hounds.
It's inoffensive on its own but too candy like to try and darken with other scents. Not for me but I see why people love it!
I received this as part of the 99 cent sample sale and the quality is great.


Great on CP

Just made a large batch of CP soap. This FO preformed great. Didn't accelerate trace, rice or seize. The fragrance is very nice. Hope it stays in the soap - will report back if it doesn't.

Joan B

I like it

I like this scent but it is a really strong scent.


Wish it was more natural

To me this scent has to much of a chemical smell and not enough natural fruit smell.

Linda G

Surprised me!

My customers absolutely love this fragrance in my soy candles. This is my best seller.

S Jeanne


I use it in GB 464 and its wonderful. I use 10% in 14 ounces of soy its a great seller for me


It is a nice scent but I have to use extra when making my candles. The scent is
very soft and not overpowering so some customers may like it.


Smells just as described. Great hot and cold throw.


This smells great and sold surprisingly well!

The Burning Mitten


smelled great!


Black Raspberry

I loved this scent i mixed it with a white tea scent and it smelled amazing.

Kara Markell

So I really thought I was going to love this fragrance. Its not bad but its not exceptional either. Everyone I've let sample it LOVESSS it and some have said it reminds them of Nerds the candy. I have no idea how lol. I just don't get that "OMG" reaction when I smell it. Nonetheless, It does have great cold and hot throw.



I have been slowly transferring from another supplier to CS and this scent im not to ecstatic about. Very artificial smelling. Not as good as the other supplier. I wont be purchasing this fragrance again.


A pretty scent. I have a friend who does not like candles due to scents (go figure right?) so I had her do me a favor (LOL) and pick a candle from the 10 I had. She went immediately to this one. Said it was light but nice not overbearing for her. She is now a converted candle lover. Will purchase again. Used it in GB 464 at 10% fragrance load


This scent is amazing out of the bottle! What is even better is that you want to eat the candle when it's lite as it smells so used 12% with GB464. A keeper for certain



Very nice blend. Not too sweet with a natural, delicious scent. Good performance in soy wax!


fruity and soothing

I got this as a sample to try. It is amazing. I decided to make tarts with it. I used ecosoya pillar blend. I think
I'll be keeping one for myself. My new favorite scent!!! Strong cold & hot throw, the scent filled house as I was making it

Estelle Creates

Nice Soft Scent

I really like this scent but it is really soft so you have to use more than the recommendations when making candles.



I purchased this FO just from the reviews, and if I tell you, this has been my best seller. It is true to it's name, I cannot keep it on the shelf, my customers are begging for more. Great hot and cold throw with IGI 4630 and GB 464. Candle Science, you are truly the best!!!

Way Down South

Love this fragrance! I wasn't expecting it to be one of my favorites, but it has an amazing cold and hot throw- I'm new to candlemaking, I made a mini 1oz candle to test it and the scent still filled the entire room!


best scent ever

By far the best scent for any soy candle line! I'm just in love with this scent it's intoxicating it smells that good! Made up a few to take to my family reunion, and boy did it sell quick! If you want a nice smelling candle this scent is for you, a must have for candle makers! You can't go wrong with this scent, thanks CS!

C-Light Candles


I just LOVE LOVE LOVE this scent, it just smells soooooooo good! I have went through several bottles of this, I can't seem to keep it in stock! One of my go to scents when I need to sell some candles. Used 1.5 oz to 1 lb C3 Soy Wax. Will continue to re order this scent, I just can't get enough of it!


I am in love!!!!!!

I originally hated this scent when I first received my order back in June. But I will tell you that this is my favorite scent!!!!!!! It is strong and magical.. I love, love, love this fragrance..

J. Smith

A scent of Vero Candle Co

I personally am not a fan of this scent however; my customers love it. I was very nervous to sell this scent because I personally don't like raspberry. It's definitely a great scent for those who do love it and a lot of people do. Very happy that I purchased it.


I love this scent and will buy it again!



When I opened this, for the first time. I thought I was sent the wrong fragrance. I immediately wanted to send it back, but I gave it a try and it the "hot throw" is great! I recommend this one. You will not be disappointed!

J. Smith


I bought a 1oz sample and made two 8 oz candles and they both sold before I could put them on the shelf. I will order a 16 oz bottle next time. The customer who bought them said she is in heaven. I guess they must smell delicious!



I bought this essence, but, when I saw the bottle of essence it came 2oz less. I'm not happy at all because the bottle did not come entirely full..but when I mean the essence, smell so good in my candle. I hope not happen again.


Black Raspberry Vanilla

Really gorgeous scent. I make soap, bath bombs and solid lotion bars with this and it is a number one seller. Scent is strong, rich and true to its name. Love it.


This is one of my favorite scents. It's fresh and perfect for Spring and Summer.


BBW Blackberry Bramble Tea

I mix this .5 oz red hot cinnamon and .5 oz black raspberry vanilla and it makes almost an exact replica of Blackberry Bramble Tea by BBW, and it's VERY strong in my melts and candles. I use IGI 6006 for melts and and 20/80 blend with 464 for candles in a 10 oz container with an eco 10 wick and I get a perfect candle. First to sell out every year at craft fairs. Try it!

Kelli S


This fragrance is great! It also has great throw. Good all around!


I tried a sample of Black Raspberry Vanilla, and it has become a new favorite!! I used 1 oz per pound of GB444 and the cold and hot throw is nice and strong. The strong raspberry with hint of vanilla is sweet. I will be ordering a large quantity of this.
