REVISION NOTICE: It is our policy to notify customers if any part of a fragrance was changed for any reason. As of June 11, 2019 our Cinnamon Chai was revised to meet our stringent safety standards to remove ingredients with similar characteristics to those on the Prop 65 list. The original strength and fragrance characteristics have been preserved. To see details of the previous version, click here.

Cinnamon Chai captures the inviting essence of a steaming mug of this much loved, and centuries old, beverage. Top notes of cinnamon, cardamom, and orange peel awaken the heart of rich cream and spicy peppercorn, while notes of rejuvenating black tea and sweet vanilla round out the base.

While it has year-round appeal as a bakery or coffeehouse fragrance, this scent creates an especially warm and inviting feeling during the fall and holiday season. Create delicious smelling candles, tarts, and melts infused with cinnamon, clove, cassia, and orange essential oils.

This fragrance oil is infused with natural essential oils including clove bud, cinnamon leaf, cassia, and orange.

Note Profile:
Top: Cinnamon, Cardamom, Orange Peel
Middle: Cream, Nutmeg, Pepper
Base: Black Tea, Clove, Vanilla

Insane HT & CT, less is more!

This FO is very true to its name, but use less than normal or you may end up with a headache! It's extremely strong and I understand why some people say it has a slightly powdery note. I think it would be delightful mixed with a vanilla FO, to give it a bit more creamy sweetness, but it is a great scent on its own.

A hint too sweet

This smell is missing the spicy cinnamon and is super sweet smelling. I haven't tried mixing the FO, but would not use solo again.

I mixed this with Harvest Apple and holy cats it made a perfect warm fall candle! Highly suggest!

So I'm melting one of the 9% melts or 1 ounce fragrance per pound.This percentage works. Still strong, but not nauseating. So thats the update.

This is an EXTREMELY strong scent. I used the golden soy tart blend at 2 ounces per pound for wax melts and it was nauseating. I cut back to one ounce and that seemed ok prior to curing. I'm going to check it today and see if it's good since it cured. I'll let y'all know.

Nice homey smell

Used in 464 soy wax with a 10% fragrance load.

This is a good scent for fall/winter. I wish it was a little heavier on the chai side instead of being so cinnamon forward, but it’s still a nice, cozy smell.


This one is great. I mix it with the Very Vanilla and it has been a top-seller. I also mix it in with Campfire to give that smell a little bit more of a homey-spicy smell instead of just straight firewood.


Chai Conversation and Books

This one is a winner. Great all year around especially when the leaves are falling and it is cold outside. The hot throw is delicious. Very happy with the cozy vibe it exudes - sweet warm spiced all at once. Customers love this one. CS, thank you!


Smells like powder??

I don't know what it is about this scent but it smells so powdery and sweet to me. It gives me a headache. The hot throw is also very very strong. I did 6% and when it's lit the fragrance envelopes my whole house. My test subjects enjoyed the scent, said it reminded them of gingersnaps, christmastime, and of course, chai. I don't know why my nose picks up powder, but I truly smell nothing else when it comes to this scent. I love some of candle sciences other fragrances but wanted to warm others about my experience with this one!


Great seller. Strong spice scent!

This is a really strong scent for both cold and hot throw. I use 8% in 464 wax. It's not especially chai-heavy, but you can smell the notes along with a stronger cinnamon and there is a touch of creamy vanilla. It sells really well for me in the fall.



I made my first batch of 415 soy wax candles with wooden wicks in 8oz glass jars as Christmas gifts for my family and friends. I bought four different scents from Candle Science and this was my favorite. The blend of cinnamon and chai is a match made in heaven. Cinnamon on its own would have been too spicy, but the chai mellows it out and it is just heavenly. Perfect for the season, but also a scent that I would burn year round. I used about 8% in my candles and while the scent is present, it is more noticeable in a bedroom or my office than my open living/dining room area. I'll up it to 10% next round.


Back to purchase

I really like this scent but it’s a bit too sweet for me and can get a bit cloying so I mix this 50-50 with another spiced oil to even it out.
It’s a good oil but if CS ever rebrands it I hope they make it creamier. Sweeter isn’t always better...

Smells Like "Library"

Im not sure what it is, but this scent reminds me nothing of chai. It smells more like the scent "Library" here on the Candle Science website. I will not be purchasing this one again.

Cinnamon Chai

Tasty scent! Smells just like a chai latte. Delicious for fall or anytime. I tried the scent in a GB 464 candle and the throw seems very good.


best seller!!!

Love, Love, Love!!! this has been one of my favorite scents BUT also my customers favorite scents! Its warm & cozy but with a little spice note in there!


One of our best sellers

I love this scent so much, it quickly became one of our best sellers. The CT is great, I've had a few people say it could be stronger so as to fill open space but everyone still loves this one a lot! Its more spicy than I expected but still love it. I think it's a good cozy year-round scent.


Cinnamon Chai, oh my!

After much deliberation, I have decided that I like the Cinnamon Chai over the Pumpkin Chai. Both are really good, but this one is excellent. It came through great in my Soy 464 candles. If you want a twist on Cinnamon, try this! Will definitely buy more.

Disappointed in hot throw

So I was really excited for this scent and made 6 soy candles with it. I used 10% in 464 and I can't smell a thing. It could be my fault, as a novice candle maker. Perhaps the wax needed to be hotter with the addition of fragrance oil, but I did not have this issue with pumpkin souffle (which is an amazing pumpkin scent, btw) so idk. I'm melting he candles back down and planning on mixing in some Cardamom and Star Anise FO. Hopefully that helps.
