Our Clean Cotton fragrance starts with bright top notes of lemon, crisp apple, and ozone. Middle notes of delicate jasmine and white cotton blossoms add a floral touch to this airy fragrance. Hints of violet and cedar round out the scent, while lemon essential oil enhances the clean, citrus element. Wrap yourself in the nostalgic aroma of clean sheets that were line-dried on a breezy day. Clean Cotton candles and reed diffusers create a lovely ambiance that will freshen any space. This fragrance oil is infused with natural essential oils, including lemon.

We experienced slight acceleration without any separation. At emulsion, the batter turned into a yellow color. The batter remained workable at a light trace but we recommend moving fast when working with this fragrance. After 24 hours the scent was strong and no discoloration. We did observe that the soap almost reached a full gel with minimal insulation. After the curing, the soap was a pale yellow and had a strong scent. This fragrance would be ideal for making a simple layer design or soaps with one color.

Perfection-why it is not available any more

Everybody loved this scent. Why is it discontinued? We get use to something amazing and then it goes away? Such a good CT and HT. Please bring it back.



I can’t believe this was reformulated. This was the only Clean Cotton my customers absolutely loved. Worked perfect with my CP soap and other product. I’m so sad. I’ll try the new one but I hope the scent is true to the original and I can use it in CP and leave on products without discoloring or lots of acceleration.


Clean Cotton Scent

OH no, I'm worried. This is my signature scent because my customers love it.


Laundry Day!

This scent is EXACTLY like the smell of clean laundry. I absolutely love it, it has an amazing hot and cold throw with 6006.


Smell is magnificent! Smells like freshly washed clothes a powdery scent.

Clean Cotton Scent throw

OMG! This smells sooooo good. The cold and hot through is the best and true to the expected scent out of the 3 fragrances I've tired so far. I tin can burned perfect from beginning to the end of the candle. I want to order a ton of this scent. Perfect!


Beautiful and Clean

Beautiful and clean soft fragrance. Perfect!



Smells and blends well with my lavender!! Very refreshing


Number one seller!

I absolutely love this fragrance. It’s a number one seller for my small business.

Smells great!

My mother asked me to make her a candle, and when I asked for the scent, she said Cotton. I have no idea what it should smell like, but the bottle smell reminded me of fresh laundry, and she said "yeah thats perfect". House smelled great, my shirt smelled like I washed it (so it gave me an extra day to not do laundry), and it was easy to work with.

For reference, I ordered the 1oz bottle


Hot Throw

Im not sure what Im doing wrong but when I melt this scent, its not loud at all and only smells for about a hour. I used a lot of FO too. I like the odor eliminator better.



fantastic scent! will be purchasing again


Smells like strong laundry detergent. Was expecting more like laundry hanging on the line.

It's a Winner!

Let the customers decide and decide they did! I completely sold out on this at my last big show. Boom! Gone! Good job, Candle Science! This is a fresh clean scent! I hot processed the soap...the scent was strong and customers LOVED it!

True to the Name

Clean cotton smells exactly like fresh linens. I find it has a very light throw, but it is perfect for anyone looking for a traditional linen scent.


Great Clean Cotton!!!

This clean cotton fragrance was much better than the previous formulation and much stronger. I used the other clean cotton fragrance and it was really weak. Satisfied with this revision!


Not what you expect

This basically smells like laundry detergent. So if you want to sell that then.....
