I seriously can't praise this scent enough. It's just sweet enough to perfectly compliment the tangy citrus smell, while still being so clean and bright. My candles with this scent sell out every week at my local market. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!! I use 9% FO load in EC26 coco soy.

Cold Process Soap Performance

We did not experience any acceleration or separation. This fragrance was slow to come to a very light trace and held there for a while. After 24 hours, the soap was still too soft to remove from the mold so we allowed an additional 3 days before removing. The soap had only gelled in a small, quarter-sized circle in the center of our loaf. There was a very light yellow discoloration and the scent was quite strong. After 30 days, the soap was still a very light yellow color but the scent had faded slightly. The discoloration can easily be fixed with titanium dioxide. Citrus scents typically do fade in cold process soaps but you may find adding kaolin clay to your soap will help the scent last longer. This would be an ideal fragrance for vibrant colors and intricate swirl designs that require a very light trace.
This scent smells incredible. Probably one of my favorites. So why did I rate it a 3? I just did a test with it in an 8oz tin with EcoWax 464, and CD 18 wick, at 6% load. I allowed it to cure for 2 weeks. Cold throw was incredible! I did a test burn, had a good melt pool (all the way to the edges), but I could smell nothing. I moved it to a small location, and still nothing. I had to practically stick my nose to the flame to smell anything, and even then it wasn’t nearly as strong as the cold throw. Disappoints me so much. I guess I’ll give it a try in a different wax or some soap and see if I have better luck. I really love this scent and want to be able to use it.

I have used many many different citrus fragrances from Candle Science and this one is nothing different than your classic 'blood orange' or 'tangerine.' It is a great citrus fragrance and would probably make a great blender. Only lost a star for not being unique!
This scent takes me straight to an island from the comfort of my own workspace!!! Love this scent!!!
I love Candle Science not only does everything smell AMAZING!!! They include TONS of information about their products and sleek simple packaging and fast shipping!
Nice smell but not strong, in 444 anyway. barely can smell
I would like it to be stronger on citrusy side
I like this scent and it's reminiSCENT of fruit slices but a little more "watery" smell than the fruity and fresh scent it replaced. If you prefer a more natural scent, this is it, but I know my customers will miss Fruit Slices.
I would love to blend this but haven't had any luck -- I've tried Pink Sugar Crystals and that was okay. Any other recommendations?!
Great scent! I used GB 464 with a 10% FO. CT and HT are amazing!!!
It's lovely! Sweet Citrus, perfect all year round. Good HT in 464 (amazing CT too), will keep this one in the rotation for sure. :-)
I have used this FO in many different waxes and no HT, I even have used 6006 wax and there is barely any HT what so ever. I don't understand how this FO is even for sale.
So I’m using 464, I poured FO in at 185, I cooled till 135 and poured into my vessels and after a week of curing it smelt very off while lit, almost like gas or oil. The CT was great but I had to blow it out after 15 minutes with the HT :(. I used 8% load.

Great scent. Citrus and bright with a perfect sweetness to it. Great to blend with Lemon Verbena.
This candle is a huge hit for me! Every person who has smelled it in front of me has loved it, both guys and girls! Love love love this scent.
The Citrus Agave has been a constant favorite of our customers! This will always be a featured scent in our year round line.
Thanks Candle Science!
I never liked the citrus scents before I always thought they were off smelling. This is so clean, so citrusy, so enjoyable. I cannot get over how surprised I am by this scent! It has a great ht in my candle that cured for 1 week. I can smell it in my whole house.
Love love love this fragrance. Customers love it too!! I use it in sugar scrubs and candles.
This is one of my absolute favorite scents. I am so glad I found it. If you're looking for a dup that compares to the very popular Capri Volcano, then this is it!
This scent is very clean smelling, like a lemon scented cleaner like febreeze. Not exactly what i was hoping for, i was looking for more of a sweet smell like lemonade. However, it does smell very good and definitely gives a happy, breezy, light feeling. Would recommend
I love this scent. It smells fresh, uplifting and delicious. It literally makes me happy smelling it. Great CT and HT. I purchased an 8 oz bottle by mistake, but once I smelled it, I decided to make test candles and now I plan to purchase more.
Perfect sugared citrus scent. Stronger hot throw than other citrus scents I've tried. I already have one like it (that I'm replacing with this) that sells extremely well. Now I know I'll keep all those customers for repeat purchases because of the awesome throw.
I’m really confused by the positive reviews. I love the way this scent smells and so do customers, but it’s SO weak even with curing that I’ve had complaints and am discontinuing it. 9% in 464 like all of my other scents, but I just can’t smell it while burning.
EVERYONE rants and raves over the scent for my candles....but I hate it inevitably turns my snow white wax a cream yellowish tint.
Wonderful! Sweet! Citrusy ! Amazing. Hot throw and cold throw is really good. Smells exactly what the ingredients indicate. I used 1 oz to 1lb Soy 464 wax and i have no issues.
This fragrance is a crowd favorite for me and number one seller. Anytime I'm burning this in a candle or in melts, people want to know what it is. This will always be in my line. LOVE this fragrance!!
I love how fresh and citrusy this fragrance is. The cold throw on this is fantastic. Others did report discoloration of their wax but I didn't have much of an issue in 464 - it was an off white but nothing compared to the discoloration I got using the CS orange blossom (I still adore that FO). I made a blend very similar to this for my summer collection before this was released and I actually think I like this better than the blend I created!
Nice citrus smell. Both the CT and HT are good. Does not seem to burn as well as other scents so I would suggest increasing the wick size slightly more than normal. Sometimes the smell is subtle then other times it hits you in the face.
This is my new fav citrus scent. Just the right amount of citrus and sweet. My customers love it
I am not feeling this one, I have to put my nose right over the candle to smell anything!!! I hope all the clean scents are not like this.
This smell reminds me exactly of the smell that you whiff at the sweet shoppe in the mall. It’s very pleasant and strong.
It’s a success! Like a tropical orange. It is fantastic and customers snapped this up in product...A+!
My absolute favorite just under white tea and grapefruit mint!!! I’ve been trying to mimic this for years!! Already ordered a large jug. Thank you thank you!!!
This scent is amazing, citrus lovers will fall in love with this scent. I made this with IGI 6006 and My candle turned to yellow because of the yellowish color of the fragrance oil. I love the smell but I wanted white candle, it was a little disappointing but the smell is awesome.
Heaven on earth in this one! I have spent thousands of dollars trying to replicate the 'volcano, lava, etc.' candle and this is it! THANK YOU!!!
