Butterscotch and Bourbon Fragrance Oil
Choose a Variant

Rich and sticky-sweet with a splash of boozy bourbon, our Butterscotch and Bourbon fragrance oil is the perfect way to indulge year-round. Sweet butterscotch and brown sugar middle notes are spun with top notes of peppercorn and warm cardamom to evoke memories of homemade golden confections. At the base, notes of aged bourbon add a hint of warmth while oak and smoky patchouli enhance the richness of this scrumptious scent.

Add this comforting confection to your collection with indulgent candles, wax melts, and tarts. Or, expand your product line into soap, lotion, or sugar scrubs.

This fragrance is infused with natural essential oils including orange peel, clary sage, clove leaf, eucalyptus, lemon, and lime.

Candle Maker’s Note

Let this fragrance oil dry down on a blotter strip before judging. Smelling out of the bottle (OOB) results in strongly sweet, almost singular butterscotch notes. The spice, booze, and woodsy notes add a beautiful complexity to this fragrance that only really shines after it dries on blotter strips or, even better, in a base of wax or soap. 

Blends well with: Snickerdoodle, Vanilla Chestnut, Sweet Tobacco, Vanilla Eggnog, Sel de Mer

Alternative branding ideas: Butterscotch Brulee, Sweet Bourbon Caramel, Salted Butterscotch

Suggested colors: Golden Brown, Caramel, Deep Tan

I was worried that the butterscotch would be to overpowering but it's just right in my M&P Soap. I just ordered more

Customers Love It!

My customers are loving this scent! Some are asking me if I will keep it in stock all year. Has a great hot and cold throw. My 10 year old loves to have this going in his wax melt warmer in his room. Said it's his favorite out of all the scents I make.

All Bourbon, No boutterscotch

I have used Butterscotch Bourbon from other companies and loved it. Took a chance on Candlescience because normally they are spot on. Was very disappointed. Its just a dull, nose thumbing bourbon scent with no warm & rich butterscotch. So sorry I bought a large bottle.

Absolutely incredible!

Not only is this scent decadent, but it's also earthy and calming! I've sold out of this scent almost immediately! Candle Science is by far my favorite fragrance vendor as they NEVER disappoint!

Not very strong

I’m surprised at the reviews saying this is a strong scent! This is by far the weakest fragrance I have used by candle science. I still really like it though, I just have to use the max fragrance load.

Love this fragrance!

We included this in our "autumn collection" for candles and wax melts and it's been a big hit! Love how cozy it is. It's warm and sweet, but not too sweet. Just gives all the cozy comfy vibes, especially for those who aren't big on apple or pumpkin for fall.

Great Fragrance

I’m not a huge butterscotch fan but my customers love this fragrance oil. I can’t make these candles fast enough to keep up with demand. Excellent cold and hot throw @ 8% it was perfect. The longer I let them cure the better the hot throw. A keeper for sure.
