They aren't kidding when they say the soap batter stays nice and fluid with this fragrance! My recipe generally will go from light trace to straight up set pudding rather quickly. I used my blender way longer than usual and I stayed at a light trace. I decided to just go with it and changed my plans a bit. The fragrance is lovely, nice and fresh, with a sweet undertone. I enjoy this fragrance and I can't wait to see how the soap looks in a few days. I am hoping that it sets up like my usual batches and it ready to cut a bit after 24 hours.

We did not experience any acceleration or discoloration. This fragrance was very easy to work with and the batter stayed nice and fluid at a light trace. After 24 hours, we observed the soap had reached a partial gel and discolored to a light tan. The scent was very strong and fresh. After 30 days, the scent was still strong and true. The soap discolored to a tan shade while the gelled area turned dark tan. While this fragrance was very easy to work with, it may be best to work quickly with your design and avoid a gel phase to maintain your color.
My tastes change all the time depending on the season but I absolutely love this Blue Spruce FO year round... I mix in a bit of Cypress and Bayberry to bring the cypress note out a bit more and it balances out with the spruce nicely. Sells well at the craft fairs, it's not a top seller but it's a good option to have on hand for people looking for something unique.
I really tried to smell the "spruce" in this one but all I get both out of bottle and while burning is a sweet blue scent that reminds me of bubblegum. Overall it's not bad, but I don't understand why it's called spruce.
All around, a great fragrance. Honestly, there's nothing new I can say about it other than my husband adores pine scents and he gave a hearty stamp of approval to this one. Did well in beeswax, OOB, CT and HT were great too.
I mixed this scent with Balsam. 1 part Blue Spruce and 3 parts Balsam it reminds me of a Christmas Candle that I got years ago from Bath & Body Works. Alon I think the Blue Spruce is too strong, but pairs well with other scents. I used this in a soy wax candle (464).
This one gives you that feeling of breathing in crisp winter air. I love it. Definitely using it as a christmas scent
I bought the old version of this FO and it was a lot stronger than the new version. Please redo this FO. Thanks, Candle Science.
I bought 2oz of this and used it in a coconut wax blend and loved it so am buying more.
While I never tried the original and can't speak on that revision, I think this one is a hit! I can't wait to incorporate this into my fall/winter lines.
There was nothing wrong with the previous fragrance ! WHY?
Hi there! You ask a great question. We revised the older version of Blue Spruce because it contained materials that are included in California's Proposition 65 list of ingredients that could pose potential health risks. While not all of our customers are located in California, we want to carry products that serve all of our customers to the best of our ability!
For more info on the Prop 65 legislation, this link is a great official source for information: https://www.p65warnings.ca.gov/new-proposition-65-warnings.
absolutely satisfied with this scent! it has a lightness or sweetness to it to offset the wood scent to make a perfect combination! i usually go for more bakery or floral smells but this one is definitely a favorite.
