Smells so good!

Love this scent! Between the chocolate, butter, caramel, and pecan it makes whatever room it's in smell amazing! Perfect for wax melts!



This scent is really nice. It has no chemically undertones. It smells great right put of the bottle. Did I say yum? This is one of my favorites.



This is just yum right out of the bottle.


More like butterscotch candy

I worked in 2 different praline stores in New Orleans, making pralines all day. This smells nothing like pralines. Very disappointed. It does smell very good, just not like pralines. All I smell (and many other people that I asked) is butterscotch candy.


OMG Delish

This is our favorite scent.. Smells buttery, Carmel, pecans.. The whole house smells delicious.. Definitely making more of this.. Best seller


This is the scent to get. A little goes a long way. I have gotten so many compliments on this one



I named it "Grandma's Kitchen." Love love love!



We cannot seem to keep this scent in stock. It is an absolute must have in our little shop.

Chad & Angel


This scent is marvelous!!! Gottabe my favorite scent so far!!! I made both candles and wax melts with it and hurray on both!!!

Soaps by Sonja


This scent is absolutely delicious. This is my Office inspired Stanley Hudson candle (because Pretzel Day!), and they sold out the first day I had them in my shop. I also received raving reviews from my customers. Cold and hot throw seem to be on point. Definitely recommend and can't wait to make more.

Fictitious Aromas

Great CTM Horrible HT

I use GB 464 with 10% fragrance load and the CT is amazing, but I can't smell it when lit unless I'm hovering over the candle... I heated to 185 and poured at 135... what am I doing wrong???

Our Best Selling Scent

Everyone loves this scent! We call our candles scented with this one "Praline Pecan" because that's what it smells like to us. It's sweet and buttery with a hint of toasted nut scent. This will darken undyed soy wax to a creamy beige color.


Owner of Pulliam Creek Farms

This is by far my best seller ever. Rich buttery pecan fragrance. Hot throw is amazing. Cold Throw just as amazing. You can smell this candle even when it is not burning. Love, Love, Love it.



So Good makes you want to eat it!



Straight out of the bottle this FO smells great. Very sweet, buttery, and warm. But it seems to lose its fragrance fairly quickly after adding to wax for tarts and candles and sadly was not a big seller with our customers either.



Smells like praline

Southern Dezires

They Love it

At first I thought it was too buttery but everyone loved it. Had to chase a co-worker down to get it back. Guess we know what she is getting for Christmas.


Winner all around!

I've got great reviews from everyone that tried this candle. The CT is great but all recipes produced great hot throws. Will definitely put this in rotation longer than just seasonal.



The scent of this oil tops any other oil I've made my candles and tarts with!! It literally sells out within 24-48 hours of it being on my shelf!! It's definitely a must buy!!!

Kristyna Grimes

I almost want to eat it.

Very sweet and nutty. I use the 464 soy and the ratio of fragrance oil is 1 ounce to 16 ounces of wax. Great hot and cold throw,
will be using this again this year.


I Love Caramenlized Pralines

I ordered this for my IGI 6006 Paraffin/Soy Wax candles and the scent is amazing. My family loves this smell. I will definitely be ordering more. Thanks Candlescience!


One of my all time favorites! I love a candle that smells like something you want to eat. This was a very popular choice!



This holiday season this scent flew off the shelves. I used it in GB464 and I had some clients tell me that they wanted to eat the wax melts because they smelled so yummy. A+ Candlescience will definitely be ordering some in the fall again



I thought I knew what I was getting into with this one and I sometimes do like slightly buttery confectionary type scents, but this was absolutely disgusting. Made a batch of these at 10% in 464 and had to put them in zip lock bags in the garage while they cured because the scent was so bad. The buttery smell was so horrendous that I had to stop my candle making because it gave me such a bad stomach ache - A FIRST in my candle making adventures... Also, my entire garage smelled like butter for about a month, lol, and made me so sick every time I was in there! Never again...


YUMMY with a capital YUM

I'm new to candle-making but I could tell from the description this would be my fav. I ordered a 16oz bottle of this and two 8oz bottles of other scents I thought I *might* like just in case this didn't turn out to be what I hoped for. Well, I haven't even used the others yet because this is hands-down my favorite of the ones I ordered! I have fallen in love with Febreze "Sugared Almonds" candles (and wanted to make refills for myself to save money since I was buying so many) and while this is not the same scent, it is definitely in the same family. To me it does smell exactly like candied/caramelized praline cookies when in soy wax; I'm not getting the 'caramel popcorn' smell others have noted. This does exactly what a food-scent should... makes you want to eat the candle. No synthetic notes that I can detect and I'm usually pretty sensitive to those. Whether it smells like praline cookies or caramel popcorn to you, it's still a very delicious scent and perfect for the holiday season in particular when baking scents are so popular.

I am still experimenting with the oil concentration in my candles, but I successfully used 20ml of this oil (about 2/3oz) in 14oz 444 soy wax. The candle smelled yummy and had a good hot throw, enough to fill a decent sized bedroom without being obnoxious. So at this concentration I'll get 20-25 12-14oz candles out of this 16oz bottle. I am super happy with this purchase and will definitely be coming back for more!


THIS IS ONE OF MY FAVS!! The cold & hot throw is amazing!! One of my best sellers & my personal favorite!!

Little Light of Mine


This smell is amazing!!!!! I blend it with a hint of vanilla and I call this butter pecan, can't keep it on the shelves all year long!!! Incredible hot and cold throw using 464 soy wax!!

Soy Austin

This scent was pretty good and performed well in GB 464. Still not sure if I want to list this on my shop though.

The Burning Mitten

This scent does smell like caramel popcorn! But it smells so good and fills up my whole house!


Absolutely AMAZING scents! After searching and pretty much wasting my money at a bunch of different companies, I ordered from candle science and thought ugh if this doesn't work I'm gonna give up! I'm not someone who puts my name on anything I'm not 150% proud to say I made. No other place I tried compares to Candle Science fragrance oil hands down! Because they are so concentrated, I use half of what I used before. No wick clogging or smoke from scent overload either! Thankyou for ending my search for a great product! Now I can focus my time more on building my business rather than wasting time and money making candles that I can't sell because I'm unhappy with them!!!


Really sweet

This scent is really really sweet. It smells like nutty maple syrup. I don't mind it, but it is not my favorite food scent. Others who like food scents seem to like it, but it is so strong that some find it offensive. It's just really intense.


Probably the favorite of my customers.


Wait...this isn't caramel popcorn?

It smells like caramel popcorn to me. I smell the butter & everthing. I'm not getting the nutty aroma of pralines in this at all.

I used this scent @ 12% in GB 444 (initially heated to 190°, heat source then turned way down, FO added once it cooled to 185°, stirred constantly for a few full minutes then removed it from the double boiler and continued with a gentle stir until it reached 125°) to make wax melts. Both the cold & hot throw are warm, rich, sweet and mouthwatering...BUUUUUUT I smell caramel popcorn. I sent it to testers & they are telling me the same thing. So although I had no intention of ordering it, I now have a bottle of the Caramel Popcorn so I can test them at the same time in different rooms. This scent is a keeper for me, I just wish the nuttiness was evident.



This is one of my personal favorites and a favorite among my customers as well.


I must say, This has been my #1 seller during the holiday months, I could not keep enough of it in stock. The hot and cold throw in the Soy and Paraffin is GREAT......I love this fragrance and what Candle Science is doing with their scents.....Thank you Candle Science, I love you!!!!



This scent is so intoxicating ,I have had dreams about it. A customer favorite for sure.



I Completely disagree with the last review. This scent is to die for!! All of my customers Love it all year round. It throws amazing
in both soy, 6006 and pillar wax!

Valerie K.


This scent is absolutely HORRID it just plain STINKS, NON of my customers like it, I couldn't pay someone to buy this scent. Used 1 oz to 1 lb of C3 Soy Wax!!! Waste of money for me!



Right out of the bottle I loved this. It is warm and inviting. I used it in an oil warmer and my entire apartment was filled with the fresh smell of bakery goodness.


My Favorite

I love bakery scents and this is my favorite. I use the maple dye chips and it comes out looking and smelling amazing!

Owner, Gemstone Jewels

This scent filled my home. Wonderful! I used IGI 6006 and ECO 8 wick. 1# wax 1oz oil. Perfection.


Wildly Caramel....

Oh this is such a treasured FO! Go crazy with the brown, deep dark rich Caramelized Pralines. Sweet treat! Pair with Hazelnut or Pumpkin for a room filled with FUN!

Windhorse Studio

smells tasty!

I loove this scent, even right from the bottle! I use it in GB 464 and it has awesome cold & hot throw. Makes me want to go out and buy a box of pralines!!



This was a major hit with my customers. Also, it's a very flexible fragrance, so it's easily blended with others to make wonderful new fragrances! The newest is mixing it with the new Candied Apple - it makes the PERFECT Caramel Apple fragrance!

Aurora Borealis Candles


smells like melted caramel more than anything.


Love it

This smells so strong OOB. I can't to make a large candle.



I am quite new to candle making but from all of the samples I've tried up to this point, this fragrance is definitely my favorite. My entire family agrees that the smell is delicious as well. I used this in GB 444 and the cold and hot throw is great. I made a candle with it as well as a couple tarts and all throw very well. I will be buying much more of this. I just wish candle science offered this on amazon for prime shipping! :)


great mixer

I use this as a mixer. Fantastic hot and cold throw. I liked the old version of this scent better when used alone, but it still works great as a mixer.


Awesome fragrance!

I ordered this fragrance based solely on the reviews here. I got it in the mail yesterday and tried it out in a jar candle using typical paraffin, vybar, and stearic formulation last night. So far what I have noticed is it has great cold throw as well as hot. To my nose it has a lot of hazelnut tone to it, which is perfectly fine with me because I love hazelnut.

I plan on ordering a much bigger size of this next time around.


Really great

This is wonderful. Smells very authentic and not synthetic at all. Reminds me exactly of the candy shops in Charleston, SC. Used it in GB 464 at 1 oz/lb and it had great cold and hot throw.


"I just want to lick it!"

The title of this review is a comment made by by a co-worker today. Another lady said she wanted to eat it. I received this scent as a 1 oz free sample with my order. I used it in 1 lb. of Ecosoya PB for clamshell wax melts. The cold throw and melted scents are both wonderful. I will definitely order this for my regular line.


Soooooo delicious

Wow, you hav done it again CS. Perfect Prfect Perfect... and STRONG!, Caramel, creamy butter...jusy what everyone wants



Made one 10 ounce candle using IGI6006 and the free sample that came with my last order. BIG MISTAKE! Have had to commit to making about three dozen more. EVERYONE that smells this wants to eat it. Used the brown die block, making it look like a nice chocolate candle. THIS IS FANTASTIC

Jackie S.


Using GB 464 with 1.5 oz of FO per pound of wax, this fragrance filled a living room, kitchen, and dining room within 5 minutes. Absolutely amazing cold and hot scent throw.


Fantastically Delicious

Terrific CT & HT. The smell of butter, pecans and caramel-makes your mouth water.

Customers Love It

I sold out so quickly that I purchased a large bottle. Smells delicious.


Primitive customers love this one!

A+ of this scent. Extremely strong and yummy smelling.


This is a favorite

My customers love this one. It seems to be more of a fall/winter holiday scent, but they sell like crazy anyway.



Customers LOVE this scent!...We sell out of it ALL the time!...Definately a BEST seller!!



Used this is my 100% Soy Container Candles. It was wonderful! This will be a keeper in my line.

Kathy of Mississippi


This scent is addicting. Everyone loves it! Works great in Feather Palm wax - both pillars and votives.

T Wyer

Smells like the real thing!

I went to Charleston recently; the candy shops there all make "Pralines" - this scent smells EXACTLY like those delightful pralines! Excellent throw hot and cold. Customers really like it.

Robin Pate


Not your ordinary "caramel nut" type scent ... you can actually smell the vanilla caramel, rich brown sugar, and buttery pecans. I love Caramelized Pralines and so do my customers. The scent throw is awesome in my 50/50 soy blend. A definate must have.

Carole Woods

This scent is a hidden gem!

I used this at 6% in EL Millenium wax. The scent was tantalizing and intoxicating. Fortunately, it's non-caloric! Excellent cold & hot scent throw. Don't pass this up to try. Definitely a winner.
