I really don't understand the low reviews on this FO. It is my absolute favorite of all I have tried from Candle Science.

We did not experience any acceleration or separation. The batter was very easy to work with, it was slow to come to a light trace and stayed at a light trace even after continuing to stick blend for an extended period. After 24 hours, the soap had lightly discolored to an ivory shade. The scent was nice and woodsy but somewhat light. We did observe the soap almost reached a full gel. After 30 days, the scent was very light and faintly woody. There was only a slight discoloration that produced a very light tan shade. While this scent may not be ideal on its own for cold process soap, it would be great as a mixer to provide deeper wood notes to other fragrances to create a more masculine scent.
This has a bit more sweetness than I thought it would which I think is the amber. I do not smell any patchouli. For me it is a mix of amber with a touch of natural wood smell at the end. I personally love this. I'm not sure what all the bad reviews are about!
This has been one of our top selling scents this holiday season - we couldn't be happier with it! Shoppers can't get enough!
This scent is great! I am so happy with it. I mix it with another scent and it is the perfect amount of crisp to blend in with a richer scent. Really happy with the scent throw as well.
I honestly don't know why this has negative reviews! I get that people miss the discontinued version of this scent but this honestly smells so good! I haven't smelled cedarwood vanilla but this smells AMAZING! please try it!!
My least favourite scent ever. I do not recommend it however if you want to try it, purchase the smallest size.
Give this one a chance! the first sniff OOB I wasn't sure - it was an interesting combination but then I became obsessed with it in our soap and melts. We have made Cold Process Soap with it as well as Soy Wax Melts with 464, and I really love this scent! Like a woodsy cologne, with cedar, vanilla and patchouli.
OOB I was not interested in this fragrance. I bought it to mix as I had seen in other comments and tried them, but didn't like the result. I tried many times to get rid of this. I had in my mind a scent I wanted, but in the end, I couldn't come up with anything. I bit the bullet when it came time to choose a scent and poured this thinking, "oh well. I've gotta make use of it." And WOW did it change and transform into the best scent in my lineup! I find myself catching glimpses of the scent lingering and wanting more. Moral of the story, give a scent a try in product before tossing it out. You may end up liking it after all!
WOW! I had low expectations when I ordered this. It turned out to be my favorite! Excellent hot throw.
I love the smell of cedarwood but this wasn't it for me. All I could smell was the amber and the patchouli. Not a bad scent if that's what you like, but the cedarwood was hardly noticeable to me which was disappointing.
I love this FO. It's my new favorite I got a 1 oz and use it in wax melts. I'm ordering a big one!
I usually love cedar smells but this one was rough. Only made one candle with it so I have 4 ounces that I need to try to get rid of.
This was scent #3 in our Fall Collection and it was the biggest hit of all the scents! I likened it to a "sexy campfire". It's got a masculine, rich scent that's woody as well. Highly recommend.
I hate that cedarwood and vanilla was discontinued. I don't like cedarwood blanc at all. I will have to find a replacement for this scent for my fall collection.
This is, hands down, my absolute favorite FO I've ever tried!! I love it. Rich, warm, woodsy and sweet and dare I say, sensuous? Yes! 500 stars!
much more sophisticated and elegant than the previous version. Smoother and not as heavy as before. LOVVVEEE
I see from reading other reviews that this scent has apparently changed over time. I never smelled the original one so I am not comparing this “Cedarwood Blanc” to anything. I have an unbiased opinion.
I got this as a sample and now I’m ordering the 16oz bottle. It smells beautiful on its own. Subtle but strong enough to have satisfying CT and HT. I chose to mix my sample with the Leather FO on this website. I highly recommend trying this combo to anyone out there that likes being adventurous and mixing oils like I do. You won’t regret it.
I personally tend to like sugary sweet scents and didn’t think I’d originally like it. After smelling it in the bottle I was an instant fan of it. If you’re on the fence about buying it, don’t be. Take the chance and get it because my customers are loving it as well. I will always have a bottle of this on hand. I’m planning to mix it with maybe “Blue Spruce” or “Cypress and Bayberry” for Christmas fragrances as well.
Happy candle making y’all!
Ohhh why did you have to discontinue this fragrance. It was a super popular fragrance for my men's line of products - and my personal favorite!
The Cedarwood Blanc. . .truthfully, I tried it today - in soy candles and tealights - left the room, came back . . .it smells like window cleaner - seriously. I'm not joking - it reminds me of an industrial type window cleaner. I have a 16oz bottle that I will not be using. My male testers are not impressed either - it can't hold a candle to the original Cedarwood Vanilla!
For anyone reading this review that enjoys the fragrance of Cedarwood Blanc and can use an extra bottle, feel free to reach out to me via my website. I will make you one hell of a deal! I have located Cedarwood Vanilla at several other candle maker's stores - but i preferred your products. But looks like I have to buy from an alternate source now. PLEASE bring it back!!
Cedarwood Vanilla was my absolute FAVORITE scent. On my most recent order I chose Cedarwood Blanc as my free sample, since it seemed others weren't impressed but I was curious about how they really compared.
Cedarwood blanc is exactly what it says, a very deep and rich woody scent with supporting perfume notes that make this is a great contender for luxury or naturals based lines. On it's own this is a really nice fragrance! It's very mellow and calm, not overpowering while still being very present.
However, if I had actually ordered (and paid for) this fragrance as a replacement for Cedarwood Vanilla I'd be VERY disappointed. There's really no sweetness to this scent, and it's missing a pleasant sharpness it's predecessor held.
I'll likely be ordering more of this scent for what it is, but it definitely does not fill Cedarwood Vanilla's shoes.
I used Cedarwood & Vanilla and it was a really good seller so when they replaced it with this I was skeptical. I ordered some and WOW! I think this is such an improvement in scent over the Cedarwood Vanilla that it really doesn't compare. It is fresh, clean with a bit of sweetness to the scent of fresh cut cedar. This is a much more upscale spa type scent that I just want to keep smelling. I haven't made my soap with it yet and this is why I have only given it 4 stars...YET, but I will update my review with results when I do. On scent alone...5 stars. In the meantime, if it doesn't work out for soap (which I really hope it does) I can't imagine that I will have any trouble at all finding products to put this winner in! Excellent CS...just excellent.
So, so sad that the original cedar wood vanilla is discontinued. This is an okay fragrance, but nothing reminiscent of the original - more like a musky cologne. No cedar, no vanilla, and one of my best selling scents is now gone.
Although this scent is a musky, darker scent than the previous Cedarwood Vanilla, and I like this one, I really wish you hadn't discontinued C.V. as well! One of my best sellers and now it's no more...
The description of this as a genderless eau de parfum is spot on, since cedar became a popular note in many of these 90s unisex designer fragrances. There is something perfumey and trendy about this FO. It doesn't have that bone dry clean wood scent. It's great as a mixer, if you want a high end outdoorsy composition. I mixed FIRESIDE + Library + Cedar Blanc, and it smells like Haitian vetiver.
Seriously wish you would bring back Cedarwood and Vanilla. This isn’t it at all
I am so disappointed with this scent being passed off as an alternative to the amazing “Cedarwood Vanilla” which has since been totally discontinued. I have a small candle business that makes Alaskan scents and Cedarwood Vanilla was my most popular fragrance. I sell about 40 candles a month and would go through a lb of fragrance every few weeks and I felt like nobody gave any warning there was going to be a change , just all the sudden it was on sale and said formula was changing. We get it, you want to make a clean, simple FO that has top quality ingredients, but there HAS to be a way to bring back Cedarwood Vanilla while following your guidelines.
PLEASE!!! I’m begging you and my customers are begging you to please, please start remaking Cedarwood vanilla.
Review on Cedar Blanc- it is not great, but it’s not terrible. I would rather have a truer cedar scent, this one smells very artificial.
I combined this fragrance with a citrus one to create my own relaxing fragrance, and it's lovely.
I loved the original, kinda not going to get to use this as an alternate. A bit disappointed.
Mixing with another FO for a delicious masculine blend. Love it!
I am SO so so disappointed at the discontinuation of Cedarwood Vanilla. Not only was it a top seller but it was also my personal favorite. The new version was ordered by my friend who also owns a shop and I wanted to try it out before ordering the new Cedarwood Blanc. She used it in 464 and it’s terribly disappointing. The hot throw is a 6/10 and the smell just isn’t good. I hope CS can see the demand for customers wanting the old version back and take us seriously and truly consider making this possible. If anyone else is reading this, and is equally disappointed, I urge for you to speak out too to help get Cedarwood Vanilla back.
I don't know what people are complaining about but I love this smell - it fits my brand and I think my customers are going to love it. I just poured this into Coco83 wax and it smells amazing. It reminds me of camping with my family in the woods and I look forward to buying more of this scent. Thanks CS!
I can't believe the negative reviews on this FO, this is our new favorite FO from CS. I am experimenting blending this FO with everything under the sun! My new favorite blend is: Fallen Leaves + Fireside + Oakmoss and Amber + Cedarwood Blanc (all FO are from CS in equal parts) / I know the aforementioned FOs are a lot of blending but it is worth it. If you are looking to create a sweeter version of Cedarwood Blanc try blending it with Very Vanilla. I recommend 75% Cedarwood Blanc and 25% Very Vanilla. I also blended White Birch + Cedarwood Blanc + Very Vanilla in equal parts to craft a sweet, woodsy autumnal fragrance. I am not partial to sweet scents but everyone who tested the previous two blends loved each one. Recommendation: My test candle did experience wax discoloration at 8% in 6006 wax, next time I'll go with a darker color, say 2 drops black and 2 drops brown to create a nice woodsy color while masking any potential wax discoloration. Happy blending!!!
If you were using Cedarwood Vanilla.. DO NOT PURCHASE THIS if you think its going to be similar... its not. It smells like perfume.. not woodsy at all! :( They really need to discontinue this one and bring back Cedarwood Vanilla!
loved the scent out of the bottle, but it lacked HT and CT. I tried 3 different batches to test adding the FO at different heats, and also tested stir times, couldnt get the result I wanted.
Hi there! Thank you for leaving a review. Our support team has reached out via email to better assist you!
I'm not familiar with the older version,
I never judge the fragrance out the bottle, I wait to rate it in the finish product, that was a mistake I made before, sometimes you need to give it a try, and let the fragrance bind to pick the notes.
I personally love this one, in candle is amazing you can smell the cedar.
Thank you this is a keeper
I’m not sure how to explain this scent. I really love the smell of cedar wood so I got this with so much excitement but the scent just makes me want to barf 🤢 I don’t smell Cedarwood at all 😕 but so far out of like 30 scents I’ve tried with candle science this is the only one I hate
I try to stick with CandleScience for my fragrances as they are now phlalate-free, most do not require a Prop 65 warning, and they use essential oils in most of their blends. When I looked for a woody fragrance and thought to give the original Cedar Vanilla a try, I was sort of repelled. The cedar came across as very sharp and the sweet vanilla didn't seem to blend with it, IMO. So when this new fragrance came out, of course I tried it! Soooooo much more in line with what I was looking for. Woodsy, warm, comforting. I love this new version and cannot wait to start using it in my line!
This is not the same as the old cedarwood vanilla!!! Please bring back the old one!!! 😢😢😢😢
Cedarwood Vanilla was our best seller and this scent doesn't even come close. It pains me to write a negative review but if you are expecting something similar to the scent this one replaced you will be disappointed. I'm giving this one star because it won't let me give zero. Please bring back Cedarwood Vanilla...
This is the first time I'm writing a review. This fragrance is amazing, thank you very much)
Bring back cedarwood vanilla!! 😭😭😭. That was our top seller! This one is not close at all
Nothing like the original Cedarwood Vanilla! This one smells like a household cleaner:(
I bought a sample of this recently due to CEDARWOOD VANILLA being discontinued... although this scent smells okay, it’s NOTHING like Cedarwood Vanilla! I’m extremely bummed and frustrated, that you would discontinue a Top seller for us! Please bring CEDARWOOD VANILLA back! And I know I’m not the only one who feels this way!
LOVE this scent. Best one I've tried from CS so far IMO.
At last, the search for the perfect cedarwood FO is over! I pour two candles using this FO. As a stand-alone FO in IGI 6060 wax, Cedarwood Blanc captures the woodsy, warm, balsamic aroma of fresh cut cedar creating a calming and comforting atmosphere. For the second candle I blended Fireside + White Birch + Cedarwood Blanc (all three FO are from CS and mixed in equal parts) = Winter Night. This fragrance blend of fresh pine, woody smoke, cedar & incense possesses the mystery of a long winter's night. I can't wait to add this to my autumn and holiday 2020 candle line. Very excited about the potential to blend this FO with other fragrance oils. Bottom line: this FO is true to its name and is the perfect blend of needles, bark, and benzoin patchouli, & cedar. If you are looking for an earthy, woody fragrance to blend, look no further.
Recently ordered the new version for the replacement to cedarwood vanilla. Slightly disappointed in the scent as I find not the same “cedar” scent as the cedarwood vanilla. More of a musk type scent.
This is a rich, warm and woody masculine scent. This is a great scent for soap and a men’s body cream. Haven’t tried it on my candles or wax melts yet but will soon. I love it.
