It’s a nice fragrance, but it’s a little to light for me! I can barely smell it it’s a very subtle smell.

We experienced a slight amount of acceleration but no separation. Initially, this was very slow to form a stable emulsion. Once an emulsion had formed the batter quickly progressed from a light trace to a medium trace. The batter remained fluid and did not stiffen. The soap poured smoothly into the mold. After 24 hours, we observed the soap only reached a partial gel and the outer edges discolored to a light tan while the inside remained a pale yellow. The scent was very strong with the spice and tobacco notes really standing out. After 30 days, the soap had discolored to tan and the scent had faded a bit but became more balanced. If the fragrance is hand-stirred in at a light trace more detailed designs may be achieved.
This is my new Fav scent!! My husband is from the Caribbean and he loves this too! Some people have said it doesn't give the carribean vibe which is unfortunate because the spice in this screams carribean to me, my husband is from the "spice island" and many of the islands are known for their spice. This scent is so heavenly to me and strong, love it please don't get rid of it:)
I loved this scent. Its not as perfumey as Mahogany Teakwood. I liked the woodsy spicier notes. I mixed it with another brands Cedar Tobacco and it is one of my top scents. The men especially love it.
I wanted this scent to work sooo bad ! It smells like every one of my favorite candles I ever bought (prior to making my own) I use it in a room spray that I sell which is great but for a soy candle the scent is just not strong enough to justify using the product in a wax .
I wanted to love this fragrance so bad!!!!!! However, it doesn’t smell anything like what you’d want a Caribbean scent to smell like. It smells like patchouli and turmeric. It just smells like spices, kind of like a combo of cinnamon, turmeric, and cayenne. Just not a fan personally, but that’s not to say that it won’t be someone else’s favorite! The other reviews seem to love it, but I was pretty bummed out that it didn’t give me a Caribbean scent profile whatsoever:( still trying to find a tropical/islandy fragrance that hits the nail on the head. CS, please make a coconut hawaiin scent!!!
This is such a lovely fragrance. I used it years ago and it was a strong thrower. I’m a bit disappointed with the ht after a 2 week cure. I’ll still use it for room sprays because it’s just that gorgeous.
I love this fragrance it smell GREAT! I will leave a review after I work with it.
Wow! So glad you made this one of the 'clean' scents as I was completely missing tobacco on the table! Smells rich on the cold throw and I'll circle back in a few weeks with the hot throw updates. Thank you Candle Science - your commitment to the clean scents matches ours and makes life so much easier when we can compete yet still be safer!
