I love the scent . It smell like you are on a real beach .
Fill your space with the airy, balanced notes of our Black Sea fragrance oil. The sweet yet salty oceanic accords combine with an undercurrent of amber and vanilla. Geographically bridging modern-day Europe and Asia, the Black Sea was known to ancient civilizations as the end of the known world. Today, its shadowy waters are even rumored to hide the lost city of Atlantis. Hints of its mystery and intrigue combine to inspire this scent’s seducing aroma.
Black Sea is an ideal year round scent that makes an excellent addition to your high-end candle or soap line.
The fragrance oil is infused with natural essential oils, including cardamom seed oil and clove leaf oil.

I love the scent . It smell like you are on a real beach .
This smells like a very high end cologne, trust me that's all my husband wears. We both LOVE this scent!
This one smells so nice in soap!! You won't regret ordering this one. It's a very manly soap, but not overpowering. The men love this soap, and the ladies choose this one often as gifts for the man in their lives. :)
So, this FO smells similiar to mens cologne to me. Very masculine and deep but not overpowering and musky. I love it !! Appeals to men and women.
Beautiful scent, but not as strong as I was hoping. I'll have to use a little more in my next batch!
This scent is perfect for ocean-y, manly candles!
I grabbed this as a free sample on a whim after seeing another review, and I am so glad I did! It's very gender neutral, not overpowering, and works well in all of my uses (massage oil, scrubs, candles, etc). The hot throw is very light, next time I will try a higher percentage than 1 oz in 1 pound of wax, but it is really a lovely scent that all of my customers have loved.
Made my very first soy candles New Year's Eve with Golden Brands 464 and they came out PERFECTLY!!! Completely smooth, silky tops and no sink holes or anything, and used the Black Sea fragrance oil. OMG- both my husband and I LOVE the scent & could hardly wait the 24 hours before burning them! I do wish it were a little stronger (I used 1oz per 1lb of soy wax), but in a way I think in a way that's the allure of it- very light, sexy smell and it DOES fill the room quite nicely with the scent of ocean spray at the beach!!!. I may try again with a little Vibar so I can use a bit more of it just to see what the difference is, but either way I love the scent and will buy it again!
I bought this scent to make Christmas candles. I didn't want holiday scents because I wanted the people I gave them to ,to be able to burn them when ever .Great scent for men
I recently purchased several scents to make soy candles for my wedding. While I was pleased with most of the scents from Candle Science, I have to say this scent was the worst. I made 12 candles using the Black Sea scent and had to throw them away. The scent is musky, like Axe Body spray or a strong artificial cologne. I wouldn't recommend this scent.
One of our favorites!
This scent is absolutely amazing. It is a unisex scent and has a warm and cold throw. I purchased this as a free fragrance and once I made the candle, I went online and purchased 4 more ounces. You will love it!
Sure with I'd tried this sooner. I love this FO. It is great for a unisex scent. I sold several before they even hit the shelves! Love it...very high-end smelling FO.
This scent is one of my favs! So glad I got it and now wish I had got a bigger bottle. My husband loves it and wants me to make him something.
Great strong fragrance. Both women and men love it. Its a top seller.
This is definitely one of my favorite men's fragrances! I made cold process salt bars, with activated charcoal. I was surprised that it behaved so well, since I used a temper mental recipe! When I unmolded them, I was instantly disappointed that I didn't double the recipe!! They look and smell amazing!! I'm certain that they will be a best seller! Next time, I'll order a huge bottle!
LOVE this scent. I'm slightly worried though because it doesn't seem to have a great cold throw, but hopefully once I let it cure longer and test it out it will perform a little better.
wanted to like this, tried couple times to me it smells like rubbing alcohol, made tarts with it and that is still what I smell when they are melting.
I am loving this scent! It's very masculine and subtle nuances throughout. A very unique scent!
I absolutely love this fragrance, but didn't get the hot throw I was hoping for. This scent is so fantastic that I don't want to give up on it, I think I will try to up wick. Usually use eco 8 wick in my 8 ounce jars with GB444, does any one else have to use a larger wick with this fragrance?
I was very impressed by this scent. It is very much like oakmoss and amber but slightly more subtle. It has to be one of my favorites as well as my customers I used roughly 1oz/1lb wax and the navy blue dye blocks from candle science, great combination. If your customers want a "man scent", please do yourself a favor and start with this one.
Great combination of fragrances going on here - perfect blend of clean, sweet and warm, so it really works all year, IMO. Almost everyone I've come into contact with loves it, and it is one of my new favorites. I've burned it once, but I think the cold throw is better. I've had an open jar candle sitting on my desk since the fall and it smells so great in here every day without even burning it!
I like this one because its a little different than the ocean/sea spray FOs. the sweet/vanilla base note gives it a little more muscle and turns it into a nice strong/masculine scent. A winner!
I didn't know what to expect from this fragrance but I am positive it will be a top ten on my product line. Wow!
Too strong for my liking; but my gentlemen clientele love it. If they like it, I love it!!!
I used this at 6% in GB464 and had trouble finding the right wick for a 1lb salsa jar. After a couple of trials and remelting I settled on ECO16. And it throws great! Love it.
I have made several batches of CP with this fo. This last batch reacted funny and turned my black dye dark red. I used the same liquid dye as before, but I think this new bottle of fo may have had more Vanilla. I think the next batch I will use midnight mica. I really love this fragrance and I will still buy it, all my customers love it too
This is amazing. It is a very clean smell but also has a sweet and saltyness to it. I highly recommend.
I did only a small batch, so there wasn't much time for seizing. I also always soap at room temp, in an effort to prevent my batches from seizing.The scent is very strong and very masculine, so a little went a long way, which I love.
I wish I could give this more than five stars! I use it in my soy wax melts, candles and scent sticks! Fresh, clean, crisp and manly - I renamed it Shave And A Haircut and it is my most requested scent (and I carry over 70 scents)! This one's definitely a winner!
I have yet to start selling this fragrance yet, but my husband smelled it during the making and said "Baby, that's going to be one of your best sellers!" So far this is my fav.
I bought this FO to make candles for my best friends bookish birthday box (based on what I thought certain characters would smell like). This scent is amazing and the scent throw is awesome. I currently have it burning and I could smell it almost immediately after I lit the wick. Will definitely be buying again!
I was so excited when I got this FO, the scent is positively divine! Unfortunately, it did not perform well in my CP soap.
I used it in soap. Did very well. Love the scent.
I made body butter, scrubs, and soap bars for a men's event and it was a best seller.I sold out of all my body butters Some women who were there looooved it too!! I am now back to make these into candles. This scent is unisex. The feedback was "it's light fresh, and just smells amazing!!! This scent will be FOREVER in my product line!! Thank you
This is a beautiful unisex scent that makes customers (and me) happy!
Loved this smell. I made this candle with a friend who has really bad asthma. When we made this scent she fell in love and actually refers to it as "Sexy Man Scent" because it smelled so much like cologne. Her asthma is so bad that her boyfriend has had to stop wearing cologne, but she really misses that smell. Candle scents don't affect her asthma for some reason, though. But it is a clean scent that anyone can enjoy. I put my candle in the bathroom and it was perfect there.
This is probably my new favorite scent!! It has a nice masculine smell that is not so overpowering that it smells like a cologne. I was supposed to make some to sell and ended up keeping them for myself, now I have to order more.
Purchased the sample bottle and made only tarts with it and boy what an awesome smell! Everybody loves this scent!!!!
I have a men's event coming up and got this as a sample and made hotprocess soap with it. It was a hit with men and women in my family!! Ordering more now to make scrubs and Body butter with it. It's hard to describe the smell...it's light crisp oceany.....I can't stop smelling my soap....AMAZING!!!!
This scent is amazing! It reminds me very much of Egyptian Amber but more clean and fresh. Would make wonderful soap or sensual candles.
Absolutely love this scent! Only bought the sample, but the OOB was so good that I'm stocking up!
I just had to leave a review since this is a new scent. This is a MUST TRY! Especially if you love more masculine, clean scents. We are big fans of Oakmoss + Amber, and this is even better. So impressed with this one! I have only smelled it OOB, but I know it'll be a hit.
