Not too impressed. Have my candle curing now, but I'm not remotely reminded of Chardonnay. It's not an awful smell, it just smells very youthful.
I'll post again after it's cured.

I bought this fragrance because I don't really have anything like it in my shop (I'm pretty new to candle making) and it seems like one of those universal scents that everyone enjoys and also because of its high soy rating hoping that it would be easier to get a good hot throw. OOB this definitely did give off a REALLY sweet grape smell. Somewhere between grape koolaid and sparkling grape juice. I haven't burned it yet but I have a little left over wax in my warmer and I have to say its pretty amazing warmed! I use IGI 6006 and usually have a bit of trouble with hot throws and since I expected this to be a lighter scent I used the max 10% (1oz fragrance to 10oz wax made 2 candles in 8oz tins and a couple wax cubes to test in my warmer) It could be a little stronger but with this scent I'm glad it isn't too strong. For color I used just a tiny piece of forest green color chip and maybe a third of a maize color chip and it came out a really nice light green grape shade. This one is definitely a keeper! If you don't like the scent OOB just give it a chance in a finished candle. Its worth it!

I can't decide if this actually smells like chardonnay, but it definitely doesn't smell like that fake grape stuff I've smelled from so many other fragrance oil vendors. It's fresh, delicate, really lovely.

This is my fav fragrance. I make lotion candles and my customers love it. I wear it as perfume because the scent is so light but crisp. It smells just like Chardonnay. I don't get the grape or bubble gum smell that some are smelling. Everyone says Chardonnay. When will we get more wine fragrances for bath and body??? Love it

I made about 40 candles for gifts, and these were among the favorites of my friends. It does smell sweet and very 'grape,' but I found that the candles with lids cured and smelled more like wine after a couple of weeks.

This smells more like Chardonnay than grape soda or bubble gum to me. There's a note there that reminds me of wine and gives me a craving. I didn't smell any baby powder. I did use this in soap, not wax, as a gift for someone but will definitely make a candle with it next and will see if it holds up the same. It is very strong at 3% in soap.

I am very surprised, as I was expecting this great clean fragrance, with some citrus and grape notes, maybe some vanilla. This smells like perfumey baby powder to me. Finished candles are in the other room and bothering my sinuses. I am really happy with the other fragrances, so sad this one was just a miss for me, and I am a chardonnay fan. :-(

This scent smelled so much like grape bubblicious while it was curing. So much so that I was prepared to rename this scent Grape Bubblegum. I used GB464 and made a 10 ounce sample candle with just 0.5 of an ounce of FO and it came out wonderful. The scent while burning definitely smells like wine and not grape bubblegum. Hot throw is very strong and so is the delicious cold throw. This is a keeper for me for sure.

I purchased this to make Valentine's Day candles but it smelled too much like "Grape Bubble Gum" I think this scent is perfect for kids soap.

I love love this scent, but beware in liquid soap it throws off a lavender iridescent glow. It is kind of pretty, but a little odd.

I used this is GB 464 i used pale pink with the color it came out so cute! The scent is amazing and throws very well. I am sorry to hear someone else had bad luck but honestly both times I have used the scent it came out wonderful and a very hardy cold throw as well. When I used this for the Eastern Star bazaar last November I had made six candles in wind glasses and they sold out in about ten minutes. People loved the smell and it is one of my favorites as well.

Extremely well done. All the right notes of Chardonnay. I could drink it!!!!!!!!

It smells great in the bottle. It smells like white wine, not grape juice. But I used it with GB 464, which tends to throw scent well and I got nothing. Maybe it works for tarts, but my results with a candle were disappointing.

I hate wine, but my husband is Italian and loves his wines. I made this one right away just to see if it was strong and smelled like real Chardonnay. I was blown away by how dead on it was and my husband loved it as well. I mixed this scent with rose as well and got a great smelling new scent.

As for cold throw, it smells grapey. I was hoping for more deep of a wine smell.

I love this one! Smells just like a glass of wine. I wish they would get more wine scents, like red wine or berry wine. I sold out of this fragrance almost immediately. People loved it!!
