I’m not sure what happened with this, but like other comments are saying, the new bottle I got is NOWHERE NEAR as strong smelling as my older bottles. This scent is one of my best sellers and I don’t believe I can sell this batch. You can barely smell the scent at all when holding the candle to your nose, which has never been the case. It always used to have quite a strong cold and hot throw, I use 9% in 464 and have not changed anything on my end. I’m so disappointed.

I agree with Mike's review dated 5/28/2019 - something is different. Like Mike, we've been using this fragrance for years and always loved the outcome. We purchase the same fragrance from several sources, but always liked the Candle Science formula. The fragrance today seems to be a bit weaker in the bottle than in the past. But once in the candle the scent is very weak; and when you burn it there's almost nothing.
I have candles made from this FO that are several years old, and they still smell amazing today. But no longer. Something is different. It's not bad, just not as strong as before.
This scent is my husband's favorite! I add a little to EVERY candle I make for him. Beautiful cold and hot throw. Will definitely continue to purchase and suggest to anyone who's looking for a manly scent.
This scent does smell more masculine than not but I do love it. Its mild at the moment but I'm new to candle making and still working on getting excellent hot throws. I tried all my scents at 10% in either 464 or A Coconut-Soy blend from another supplier. 464 is so difficult to work with I'm leaning toward the more expensive coconut-soy wax. Giving 464 1 more go around before kicking it to the curb tho.
I got a few complaints on this scent that the smell wasn't strong once lit.
Wowzer!!! i kept going into the drying room to smell the soap I made with this scent. MOST men love this scent and buy when they smell this! my wholesale accounts love this too! I just can't get enough of this scent!
Used in Q210 at 11%. Let it cure for 2 weeks and burned using a 3/8" dual wood wick in 8 oz jelly jar. Hot throw is fantastic! I bought a 1-oz sample so I will definitely be buying a larger bottle of this. I have enough of the sample left to make a bar of soap to test in CP soap.
Been using the fragrance for years and tons of it. Lately there literally is no hot throw in soy wax. We have even tested different formulations, wick sizes and fragrance loads to adjust with the obvious reformulation on Candle Sciences end to no avail. It’s really unfortunate because this was always a number one seller. I know you won’t respond or probably even read this but please candle science switch back to the old fragrance quality or manufactur for this scent because this new one is no longer a 3 leaf soy rating.
Thank you for your feedback! We can assure you that we have not changed the formula or manufacturing of Caribbean Teakwood. Any time we update a fragrance oil, such as a regulatory revision, we will add a notification to the product page for reference. If you feel that your recent bottle is not performing as expected, we would be happy to speak with you about it and make sure the situation is resolved. Please feel free to reach out to our support team for further assistance.
I love this fragrance. It's sexy and masculine and complex. But - at 10% in 464 the hot throw is too light. But - I love it so much, I'm going to try it at 12% and see what happens.
I used this FO in my CP soap recipe that I've been using for months with great results. It slightly accelerated which was fine but I went to unmold and it had turned an ugly bright yellow! Lol. Also, I had to put it in the freezer to unmold it because it was just too soft. It still smells great but the bars sure are ugly.
Everyone loves this scent! I rename it and sell it in the summer and the winter (Sh!!)
The cold throw and hot throw is amazing. I use 10.5% in my soy 464 wax. Burns beautifully.
Haven't tried it as a reed diffuser yet, but I am sure it will be a great seller.
My husband is going crazy over this scent!! I'm excited to get the soap made for him!
Smells great OOB, has fantastic Cold Throw but zero Hot Throw? First time I ever had that happen with scents from Candle Science
I mix this with Dragon's Blood. I do wish it was a little more woody but it's a good solid scent with a great throw.
Something has changed. The throw isn’t half of what it used to be. 😞
My husband loves it!
This fragrance is excellent in cp soap! It is one of our best sellers for our men's line. The scent sticks well after cure and smells so sexy! It actually smells a tad more peppery in the shower than on it's own, but such a fantastic fragrance, Please don't ever stop making this one. It performs beautifully in cp soap, I can layer and do a swirl and play with the top. It doesn't retard trace, but it doesn't seize either. The only thing I would change is that it does discolor a tiny bit (not due to vanillin), and it does heat up in the mould, but these are minor issues and it sells out fast regardless!
I Love this sent in candles and a great seller. I tried it in CP soap and the sent didn't stick after 24 hours.
I've been ordering this scent for years. But for a while now I really struggle to get any throw from this scent. I never had this problem when I first started using it so maybe when it got reformulated to be body safe something changed? I've tried it at higher percentages, used different wicks, and I've used it in many different wax formulations. I even try putting it in a small room to see if it is getting lost in the larger rooms. Barely anything or Nothing :(
This is a great scent OOB and has a nice cold throw. It sells really well. It is super strong in CP soaps. It is easy to work with and the scent holds. It did discolor a little after a while.
I wish there was something CS could do to increase the hot throw. I know I'm not the only one struggling. And it hasn't always been this way.
Absolutely love this divine fragrance - it has an exotic masculine scent, with hints of femininity.
I used this scent from a sample bottle has a nice cold throw and I mean amazing amazing amazing, but the hot throw wasn't as strong as I would have hoped, definitely there but just not very strong. I am going to give it another shot may have been an iffy batch. wanted to see if anyone mixes this with anything to strengthen the throw in GB464 with wooden wicks.
Because is more of a masculine fragrance. Not my thing. Kind of reminds me of Calvin Klein 1. But the men in my life seem to like it quite a bit. Used in cold process soap. No discoloration, no acceleration. I even put the fragrance on my oils before the lye, and had no problems with it. Not sure about post cure, as in only a few days old. Seems strong, I think it will hold.
This is another one of my top favorite CS fragrances. Great cold and hot throw!
This is one of the most freshest Beachy happy scents! Real winner you won’t be sorry!
I LOVE this one! It is such a handsome fragrance! I have used this along with Candlescience's Vetiver fragrance oil and together they have an insanely beautiful and strong cold and hot throw! This is a great go to for less girly candles.
This fragrance reminds me of the men's cologne Old Spice LOL. Even though it's pretty much a masculine fragrance women love it and it's selling so fast I'm going to have to order more.
I sell this to both men and women and it is a top 5 seller for me. I love it
Truly delicious! Great throws in 464 at 10% fragrance load. Must try
Bestseller this holiday season! Cannot keep in stock! :)
This is an amazing scent! I sold through my entire inventory of this during my holiday flash sale. This will be a staple in my product line! Great hot throw and cold throw! 10% fragrance load with 464.
I love this scent, it's very versatile! It has a very unique hot and cold throw; my customers love it, too!
I love love love the way this one smells! It's tobacco, patchouli, woodsy, and so manly... But the hot throw just isn't strong enough. I've tried doubling the oil and it's still not strong enough. I've run a few tests where I will let the candle burn in a small room for a couple hours. And when I walk into the room, I can only faintly smell it. I really wish they could figure out how to make this one stronger because it smells absolutely fantastic. I tried it with Golden Brands 646 soy wax and Golden Brands 444 soy wax.
This is such an beautiful scent. Excellent cold and hot throw !!!
Currently burning 3 of these candles down to nothing so I can have the glass back. Can't smell a thing. Perhaps the flash point isn't accurate?
I love the smell in the bottle though. Anyone else have any ideas on how to fix this problem?
This has a great cold and hot throw and has so much going for it. use about 8% for best results and you will love the way it fills a room
Customers - both men and women - love this scent! It's very refreshing
I'm typically not a fan of the musky, earthy scents. I like pine and fir, but not sandalwood. However, I was pleasantly surprised with this one. I was looking for scents that were not so fruity and floral to add to my spring line, and I think this will be one I reorder. I still probably wouldn't go for it in my house, and I have NOT burned it yet, so I can't speak for the hot throw, but I think others will enjoy this, no matter if their taste is more masculine or feminine. It has a nice sweet undertone with the wood.
This scent is one of my favorites. Sweet, woody, and warm - I love it!
This scent my customers love it has a musky masculine smell and both women and men love it! It is one of our top selling candles!
This scent smells so wonderful from the bottle and cold throw. I was so disappointed when I couldn't smell not even a hit of this when lit. I may try it again. Like others say here it smells amazing and could be a top seller for sure IF we could get it to have a stronger hot throw.
Absolute best seller. Masculine without being bulky or coarse. Perfectly rustic, while still quite sophisticated. Heady and gorgeous, with hints of exotic, oiled wood, peppery spices, and-- no other way to say it-- hunky shirtless men. "Sensual" comes to mind. Beautiful, room-filling cold throw in EcoSoya CB Advanced at 10%; almost too intense hot throw, had to scale back to 8% and it's perfect.
Made a 2oz sample for my boss. I didn't get a chance to test it, but he LOVES it, and that's all that matters! ;)
This is hands down one of my favorite fragrances.
This scent is just too good. It is sophisticated and earthy, a little musky and sweet. It's well rounded, smooth, warm, easy on the nose. It's both masculine and feminine. This is my favorite scent earthy scent. Good cold and hot throws.
You all have made my dreams come true!! I had asked you all a couple of years ago if this scent could be created in a skin/body safe fragrance and you all listened! Thank you so so much for creating this beautiful fragrance that we can now use in soaps and bath & body products! I hope you all are very well stocked up!! This is going to create an avalanche of orders! Thank you again!!
This has now become my favorite scent. It's earthy and SEXY. I love love love it!
I have been making and selling soy candles for many years. I love candle science. I received this fragrance as a sample with one of my regular orders. I decided to make a 2oz votive using PB soy wax. After curing it for one week and a half, I became excited and decided to light it before it was completely cured. I was very impressed. So much aroma from such a small candle. I definitely will be ordering more fragrances from candle science.
I made this with soy wax 444. This FO gave a strong cold throw, but gave a very weak hot throw. I could barely smell anything. I'm very fond with the smell, but disappointed that it was not strong when it's hot.
This scent is now my favorite. It's sexy (for both men and women), earthy, strong...everything I love in my wax melts. This is going to be a huge hit with my customers! Don't ever stop making this!
This is, by far, the sexiest scent I have ever smelled. The hot and cold throw are both amazing.
Very, very strong hot throw in Eco soya CB advanced wax at 10%. Overpowered the smell of stale cigarettes in a friends bedroom, and even overpowered the smell of second hand smoke WHILE he was smoking, I didn't even realize he had a cigarette until he was almost done smoking it! Great for a masculine scent, but appealing to women as well. Definitely can be used to cover odors and smoke!
This is an amazing scent. It is one of my best sellers. It is liked by both men and women. I use it in gb464 and the throw is great at a rate of 1.5oz per pound.
My costumers love this scent and rave about how well the hot and cold throw are.
This is such a wonderful scent but.... 1 oz per pound of GB 464 barely gave a cold throw. Zero hot throw. I'm giving it another change and will use 2 oz per pound because I want this fragrance in my lineup.
Sometimes the leather top note can be a bit over bearing for me and give me a slight headache but other times I really enjoy the smell. Weird I know lol. I like this scent but gave it four stars because I think the leather top note is a bit to strong and overpowers the scent. I used this FO in GB 464 and the cold and hot throw are pretty strong.
I found this fragrance to be sticky and a little heavy on the spicy and patchouli overtones. Not masculine enough, and not subtle enough for a feminine scent.
This fragrance really impressed me... I've only smelled it out of the bottle so far! I think it smells like a sexy male cologne. I can't wait to make it and see see how the guys react to it.
This scent is perfect for a mens line, its masculine. It will definitely be a hit with the women as well. Try it, youll enjoy its well=rounded aroma.
This is an amazing scent- a tropical top note with the teakwood really coming through. Perfect balance of "woodsey" and sweet. Would definitely buy this again.
candlescience has such wonderful scents!!!!! I love them all.
candlescience has such wonderful scents!!!!! I love them all.
Wow this is masculine and manly. Smells so sexy. Love it.
I loved it smelling it right out of the bottle. I made candles and tarts and this one is a big hit. It also is a unisex fragrance.
I love this scent, it smells great in the bottle, but as previous reviewed when it is lit you can barely smell it. Anyone have any suggestions on fixing this problem?
everyone has loved this scent! its very powerful and can easily fill up to two to three rooms! people are begging for more!
This was my free sample that I got in my order, and wow, is it strong! I can smell it outside of my apartment! I myself do not really like the fragrance, but the lady I was making this for sure does! Im gonna have to order more of it. ^_^
I absolutely love this fragrance .... am not sure what it smells of but its nice and strong without being overbearing. Have used it in both C3 as well as 135 and both are great!
This fragrance completely surprised me. When I first received it, OOB I did not like it at all, but it slowly grew on me after each sniff. I eventually made tarts and a candle using Ecosoya Advanced. Both the cold and hot throw were amazing and to die for @ 9%! Men and women both complimented this fragrance. I plan to always having it on hand as one of those "different" types of scents people sometimes ask if I have available to buy!
Why is this getting bad reviews??? I think it is wonderful. My only regreat is: I only ordered 1 oz.
You can really smell all the different scents in it. I LOVE IT!!!!
It has a very sofisticated and unique combination of popular aromas combined to create a truly one of a kind aromatic blend!
This fragrance smells great in the bottle and good cold. You can barely smell it when hot. I chose it as a free sample. I may give it another shot and add more than 1 oz to 1lb of soy wax...
Out of bottle this smelled great but used in GB415 with a 5 day cure, there was almost no hot throw. I could only smell it standing directly over the candle and even then the throw was light.
