Choose a Variant

Citron and Mandarin is a vibrant citrus fragrance oil that fits beautifully in any summer candle or soap line. Top notes of grapefruit, lemony citron, and mandarin blend with touches of peach, orange, and delicate cyclamen for an irresistible burst of brightness. A hint of vanilla and citrusy bright musk finish off this super fresh scent. Lemon, tangerine, orange, and grapefruit essential oils reinforce the intense juiciness in any product you create.

Craft revitalizing soaps, scrubs, and foaming bath butters for a squeeze of citrus in handmade aromatherapy creations. Ideal for kitchens and open spaces, the energizing freshness of Citron and Mandarin adds a bright, summery atmosphere to any occasion. This tantalizing fragrance is also a great option for adding zest to outdoor picnics and backyard festivities. This fragrance oil is infused with natural essential oils, including grapefruit, orange, and lemon.

We did not experience any acceleration or separation, and this fragrance stayed at an emulsion for a long time. After 24 hours the soap was light yellow, and the scent was mild. The soap did reach a full gel with minimal insulation, and we noticed the bars were slightly oily. After 30 days the scent did not fade, and the color remained a light yellow. This fragrance would be great for complex swirls that require a very light trace and no acceleration.

Using 444 wax, CD 10 wick with 10% stearic acid, and 10% Fragrance Load. Using 4 OZ standard canning jar. Poured on July 4th today is July 7 and I am testing my wick. My husband can smell it in our living room and the candle is 2 rooms away. He had no idea I was test burning and ask if I had cut a cantaloupe or something. Excited to see what the other candle smells like on July 18th!

Pleasantly surprised

I love citrus scents and the best way to describe this is like a non-carbonated orange soda scent. Has a very minimal lemon zest scent that gives it life. I love this scent!!!

Italian Lemon

Reminds me of a pithy Sicilian lemon, those ones that they use for perfume but have mostly the white pith inside (not juicy part). More of a bitter lemon citrus scent- I don't smell mandarin too much. I really like it and so does my family. It is strong, I mixed it with lavender and could not barely smell the lavender. My only issue is, could they make a phthalate free version, or maybe they have already. I have purchased mine 6 mos ago. Thanks you. Enjoying all my fragrances from candlescience.

Great fragrance!

I love the citrus smell. Super impressed with the hot throw and cold throw.

Powerful and great on its own. Also, a great blender when a citrus is needed in other oils. Customers love it, and it is a great seller for those buying for others.

Nice fresh scent

A very nice fresh, citrusy scent. Good mixed or by itself, though perhaps a bit strong.

Accelerates CP Soap!

Smells fantastic so I was very excited to use it for an intricate design but it accelerated very quickly. I was at full trace in about 5 minutes. I soaped cooler, only pulsed my blender twice, and even added the FO to the oils first to prevent acceleration. Will use it for layered designs in the future.
