A seductive blend of aromatic herbs, warm amber, and florals, Black Violet and Saffron fragrance oil adds mystique to luxury product lines. Gentle notes of bergamot and geranium fade into a bouquet of rose and violet with a woodsy, rich base of saffron with a hint of leather and vetiver.

Candles, melts, and tarts work well with this year-round fragrance. Perfect for a luxe spa line, Black Violet and Saffron is approved for bath and personal care products from soap and sugar scrubs to lotions.

Note: Black Violet and Saffron is too strong out of the bottle for the fragrance notes to be in balance. It should only be evaluated in a candle or personal care base.

This fragrance oil is infused with natural essential oils including cedarwood and vetiver.

Blend recommendations: Palo Santo, Lavender, Vetiver, Sandalwood

Alternative branding ideas: Saffron and Suede, Saffron Santal, Violet and Oud

Note Profile
Top: Bergamot, Geranium
Middle: Rose, Violet, Raspberry

We did not experience any acceleration or separation. The oils and water were slow to come to a light trace and we observed the batter turned yellow. We continued blending to a medium trace and started to see slight signs of acceleration, however the batter remained easy to work with and poured smoothly into the mold. After 24 hours, the soap was too soft to unmold so we allowed an additional 3 days before trying again. The soap had discolored to a dark brownish-yellow and all but the corners had reached the gel phase. The scent was incredibly strong. After 30 days, the soap discolored to a light tan shade and the scent was very strong. If you prefer a lightly scented soap this fragrance could be used at a lower rate and still maintain the character of the fragrance.

Very Different!

Not sure if I like it, or love it. It's definitely warm and sexy, and for me, has great CT & HT! I started with a small bottle and ended up buying a large one after my friend gave me a great name to market the scent!!

out of this world, amazing


OOB and Cold Throw is Divine but something was unexpected...

Okay so OOB and the Cold Throw of this scent was amazing! I get hints of sour plums and the saffron gave this more depth. While that was all good, I was disappointed at the strong musty note that I got when burning this. It's quite similar to the musty note I got from Gardenia & Tuberose fragrance - and the reason why I would be changing to another Tuberose fragrance. This one started really nice until it's not. :(



This is absolutely one of my best selling fragrances! My customers love it, I love it. It is a fresh smell, not overpowering like some floral scents can be. I have heard comments such as "sultry", "fresh out of the shower", "sexy", "romantic", etc. It is the perfect fall/winter fragrance currently but I'll probably keep this one year-round.


This scent is so unique! I had a love hate relationship out of the bottle, but in grew on me. I made my first batch today and cannot wait to test the HT.
I'm buying more!



I loved this scent, but it fades after a couple days even closed up in clamshells.


Love this scent!

I have been testing this on a few friends and they love it. I'm definitely going to introduce it into my line maybe for valentines and call it 'Parisian Nights.'

Love 8 Hate Apothecary

I LOVE this fragrance and I can even go as far as saying that it is close to my number ONE favorite scents. I love the complexity of this FO. It is original and timeless. All of the notes come through and both the HT and CT are excellent.


Don't like this

I had high hopes for this one when I read the reviews. It was ok when I first opened it then I made a candle to sample and I couldn't smell anything. It was strong when I made the candle and left it to cure but upon burning it I did not smell anything. Also, after making the candle and letting it cure, I really did not like the scent at all. It reminded me of Black Ice the car freshener. Good thing I didn't buy in bulk.



love it

This smells nice!



I just started using this fragrance and my family loves it

Revised review- 'where's the fragrance?'

I would like to revise my previous review. When I couldn't smell the FO, I didn't realize that I couldn't smell ANYTHING! Food, rubbing alcohol, incense, other candles, etc. Therefore, my review was not accurate. I hope that my sense of smell returns,, so. My daughter smelled the FO and it said that it was 'strong and had a pleasant fragrance. '


Where's the fragrance?

I'm sorry, but I can't smell the fragrance! I bought the 16oz based on the reviews and I received the bottle today. I can't smell a THING! The name of the FO seems interesting but I can't leave a positive review.



I love this scent! Very sophisticated. Great CT and Strong HT. Hard to explain the scent very “violet” if that makes any sense :)



Definitely need to make a test candle to get the full experience as the oil is a little odd. Final result reminds of a high end luxury spa scent or a bougee hotel. It's a teeeeny touch too floral for me so I plan to blend with a woody scent & I have a feeling it'll be one of my favorites.


Very impressed

This fragrance is awesome. CT and HT were both very nice in my paraffin soy blend wax! Will purchase again very soon before it sells out!


Smells so good!!

This scent is everything, I got this to go with my fall collection that I am starting soon and I can not wait to make a nice batch of candles with this.

Sooooo .... let me start off by saying THIS SCENT SMELL LIKE PARIS! Lol it’s amazing it really does smell like a luxury candle. I made it last night trying to choose which scent I’ll use for my one year anniversary and I’m like OMG. I also just made a one off room spray for a girlfriend and when I tested it, I was like OH YEAH THIS IS THE ONE!
Anywho good job def a five star scent for me!

I am pleasantly surprised with this fragrance! I am NOT a fan of floral scents - but this fragrance is just... amazing! I have processed my testers with BW-921 for my melts and they're curing now. Can't wait for the reveal!

Absolutely beautiful

WOW, this fragrance smells expensive. The violet note that is in many high-end perfumes is perfect in this fragrance oil. It's deep, dark and seductive and smells incredible in a candle. I'm immediately adding this to my core collection line. Perfect for the cooler weather months ahead and burned all year round.

Strong Scent

I immediately took to this fragrance because of the throw it gave right out the bottle. What made me love it even more was blending it with Sandalwood and Lavender. This was a suggestion from Candle Science and I titled it Violet and Oud, very seductive. This scent is rich and unique, like something from a boutique collection. I’ve only made room-sprays and gotten positive feedback, candles are next and I have no doubt the throw will be just as amazing. I purchased the 4 oz but will definitely be purchasing the larger size soon.

Great Scent!

This scent is really nice and surprisingly luxurious. I'm not not a huge floral fan, so the woodier/softer base really helps balance the floral overtones. Great scent that I can see working for any season.
