Cardamom and Star Anise infuses spaces with the aromas of a spice bazaar. Peppery top notes of ginger and cardamom mingle with the star anise to create a fusion reminiscent of a cup of masala chai. Middle notes of alluring star anise and a dash of nutmeg combine into this super fragrant spice blend. The base of smooth vanilla bean and black licorice balance the spice and add a touch of sweetness.

Create unique and distinct wax melts, candles, and reed diffusers, or turn your handmade soaps and other bath and body care products into chic gifts. If you’re looking for a spicy holiday experience, try out this exceptional scent.

We did not experience any acceleration or separation. The batter was very easy to work with and was slow to come to a light trace. After 24 hours, there was no sign of discoloration and the scent was strong. We did not observe any sign of the soap going through gel phase. After the cure, the scent stayed strong, and the bars discolored to a light cream color. This fragrance is ideal for creating intricate swirls or designs that require a very light trace.

This is such a unique and complex fragrance, simply stunning! I have used this in both candles and soap and it is divine. Definitely on my top 10 list. Make sure to give this a try out of the bottle as it's fairly strong when you first take a sniff. Keep this fragrance available all year long!

Candle Company Owner

I LOVE this aroma. It is so rich and unique!!


I absolutely love this scent! I needed a new Anise as a previous supplier discontinued their version which I depended on. I looked for a replacement for over 3 years, nothing compared, everything was so unnatural smelling, until now! CandleScIence's version is very natural, beautiful and gently sweet. I am very happy.

A Good Cardamom Scent

I've been looking for a good cardamom scent for awhile and am very happy with this one. I was wary of the anise scent it was paired with because I usually dislike anything with anise in it, but wanted to try it. I really like it! I don't get an overwhelming anise scent but it gives a nice complexity to the fragrance. Will definitely be ordering more!

I really wanted to like this scent oil. I truly did. I opened the bottle for just a little sniff and was not pleased at all but I decided to give it a chance anyway. I wanted to judge it out of the bottle as it can smell a little different in the wax, you know? So, I add it to my wax and was assaulted with the scent of...licorice! Not just any licorice, but the dark licorice I remember and didn’t like as a kid. The scent is cloying. I usually adore CS scents but they missed the mark with this one.

Spicey & Unique

As always anything candlescience puts out usually gets 4 or 5 stars from me. Number one for originality number two for the best in scent throw. Cardammon & 🌟 Anise may not be for everyone but its complexity works for me. Especially the Licorice and I don't even like licorice. And for the life of me people..sniffing off the bottle is not a good way to judge a fragrance.

Linked Keys, co-owner

This scent is absolutely wretched! I’m sorry, but I simply can not find any other way to describe it. In the bottle, it smells like Sprite with a touch of cinnamon. Out of the bottle in you soap or candles, it smells like that black licorice that pretty much everyone loathes. We ended up deciding NOT to include it in our lineup of candles and soap.


I was so excited to see the new fragrances available and we just got our order today. I was disappointed though in a few of the new fragrances including this one. I cannot smell any ginger, nutmeg, or vanilla. All I smell is a bitter licorice. It almost has a pine cleaner smell too. Definitely not what I was expecting.
