Cinnamon Stick Fragrance Oil
Choose a Variant

Product Update September 21, 2022:

In 2020, we launched CandleScience Clean Scents™, a fragrance oil line we developed according to our own rigorous, industry-leading safety standards. As regulations evolve and new research becomes available, the criteria a fragrance must meet to be a Clean Scent evolves, too. Unfortunately, this fragrance no longer meets our strict requirement to be labeled a CandleScience Clean Scent™. At this time, we have no plans to discontinue this fragrance oil.

If you’d like to learn more about the difference between our standard fragrances and our Clean Scent™ fragrances, check out our fragrance oil safety support page.

Our Cinnamon Stick fragrance oil is a full bodied, richly spiced cinnamon. True to the smell of whole cinnamon sticks, this strong woody scent can stand on its own or blend with other fragrances for an added twist. Cinnamon leaf and toasted nutmeg start off this warm and comforting scent. Then fresh ground cinnamon and a hint of crushed clove in the main body are smoothed out by touches of vanilla, tonka, and cinnamon bark in the base. Cinnamon leaf and cassia leaf essential oils reinforce the aromas, so the distinctive, spicy kick of cinnamon shines in your finished products.

Wax melts, tarts, and candles fill large spaces with an alluring, spiced aroma and create a cozy atmosphere in more intimate settings. This nostalgic fragrance evokes memories of holiday gatherings, the warmth of being in the company of loved ones, and is a festive addition to any occasion.

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

Blends well with: Macintosh Apple, Blueberry Cheesecake, Hot Apple Pie

Alternative branding ideas: Ground Cinnamon, Cinnamon, Ceylon Cinnamon

Suggested colors: Any shade of Red, Brown

Popular Fragrance!

This fragrance never ceases to not sell! Smells just like what it says!

At first, I thought it was too sweet. But then I realized that it actually does have that deep, rich, barky quality that a cinnamon stick has. Almost borderlines cinnamon candies, though. Very potent.

Nice but didn’t wow me

I use 6% load in soy 464 185* cure 1-2 weeks.

It wasn’t as spicy as I hoped. It is a good smell, just might try some other cinnamons. I would like to try blending it but I’m a newbie still so I’m haven’t tried blending FO much.

No Scent

I have been using the 464 soy with the CD 16 and 18 wick and following instructions form candle science and letting them cure 14 days. No scent at all and I have tried other fragrances with success. I even took the percentage of fragrance up much higher and nothing. I so want to find a cinnamon that fills the room up.

Cinnamon stick

Smells just like cinnamon stick. Has a decent cold and hot throw in parasoy.

Very strong, very cinnamon-y!

This is called cinnamon stick, and it smells just like a cinnamon stick.

I blended with Peach Nectar and it smells just like my Nana's peach cobbler. I'm excited to use this in some holiday/winter blends. It's an all around straight up cinnamon that will blend perfectly with whatever you want to use it for.

I will say, it can tend to overpower softer scents, so if you're using it as only an accent, use less of it in the blend.

Smells nice

I love the scent of cinnamon! The CT is perfect, but my HT was mild. I just might use 8% for my next batch. Overall I am happy with it and my family loves it!!

Customer Favorite!

This one always is one of the most popular come the holiday season! It smells like a yummy cinnamon cookie and is warm and inviting as well. A favorite year-round, but perfect for the holidays!

Haven't quite figured it out

I love all things cinnamon and the spicier the better. I think the smell on this but it did not hit me as hard as I expected. I made it at 8% in 464. The CT was fair but not super potent, and the HT took a very long time to get strong compared to the other scents I was testing. I think I need to toy around with it a bit more but it may be worth it for just a clean and simple cinnamon.

One of my favorites!

This is a perfect fall/winter scent. Awesome CT and HT. I made a bunch of candles for gifts and everyone loves it. Also made these for a fundraiser and they all sold out first. Please keep this one forever!
