I love this one! Great hot and cold throw and customers buy it like crazy!



very strong wonderful scent absolutely love it


LOVE this one

This scent is amazing. I love, love, love it. I hope it does not get ruined when they revise it !!!!!


Must have!

This scent is everything! I use coconut wax, with 10% fragrance load. This is such a premium fragrance 7-8% would give get hot throw. The cold throw is really the attraction. I gave 4 of these as Christmas gifts. Needless to they were a hit! Fragrance highly recommended!


I wish they would have this Phthalate free- i cannot find a replacement, it is so good

I used to use this fragrance and my customers could not get enough, however i discontinued due to the Phthalate content. I could not replicate this scent with other oils and i keep checking periodically hoping they will announce my long awaited "Phthalate Free Cranberry Marmalade" .
Please please please consider this!!! thank you for reading

New favorite scent!

Love this scent! It has a great throw, fruity but not too sweet, with a hint spice. This is one of my new favorite fragrances. I used 1/2 red dye blocks to 24 oz. and it came out a beautiful dark red!

Silas C.

wonderful - strong but not in a scary way!

This is an absolute best seller. The cold throw is pretty strong, and I get lots of follow-up compliments about that. I use 10% in GB 464.



This scent is dynamite!!! Perfect for the holidays and the cold and hot throw is amazing!!! I was not disappointed in this scent at all!!!

What a great fragrance!

I have been purchasing from candle science from the very beginning that I began to make candles as a hobby and gifts. I must honestly say that I have been nothing but satisfied with the fragrance oils. I recently purchased cranberry marmalade due to the reviews and ratings customer's gave it. My only concerned is the flash point is below 185F with a flash point of 147F in this case should I be pouring the FO as low as 147F or continue to add between 180-185. Most of the FO that I have purchased are always above 185F or higher not many have a low flash point as this FO. Thank you and look forward to your input.

CandleScience Reply

Hi! Great question! We recommend adding the fragrance at 185°F for optimal results. This will allow the fragrance to properly bind to the wax. You will not lose any fragrance by adding it higher than the flashpoint. You can read more about fragrance flashpoints and why we list them here:

I havent bought this before but......

Im curious if .5 Oz would work for an 8 Oz Candle

CandleScience Reply

Hi! Yes, you can use 0.5 ounces of the fragrance for your 8 oz of wax. Enjoy!


Great Scent. I use 464 12%. Cold and hot throw are awesome!! Best seller. Every time someone sniffs this one I get a WOW!

Great Fall Fragrance

This is another of my favorites from CS, it was also a customer favorite. I use this in 464 at 10% and it is perfect. This is a perfect fall berry fragrance, at least to me it represents fall, but I like this one so much it will burn in my home all year.


I ordered a sample and love the scent. I am hoping this one will be reformulated before next fall! I would give 5 stars for scent, but only giving 3 for now because it isn’t phthalate free.


Great Holiday Scent

I'm back to buy more of this scent! After making two test candles with it, I'm in love! It smells warm and inviting; a perfect scent for the holidays.


Best Seller

My customers love this fragrance, I can't keep it on the shelves. I am using 464 and 10% FO load and both the cold and hot throw are amazing. You can't go wrong with this one.


one of my best sellers

Love this scent. A lot of great cold and hot throw. In soy 464 one ounce of fragrance for 1 pound of wax.
I have used this for 2 years now, it is a great seller.
I also used one of the red and one of the lavender dye chips, in one pound of wax and it came out with a nice cranberry color.


Best Holiday Scent!!

I make soy blend candles with this scent every year and they are by far the best mover with my clients. The scent is fresh and woodsy and fruity all at once and the scent throw cannot be beaten. You could really sell this scent year round. Love, love, love this scent!!!



I absolutely love this scent. When I was making my candles it smelled fantastic. It has a fresh spring fruity scent. Kind of like apple. The throw is wonderful hot or cold.



Love this scent. Its sweet with a little bite. Great cold and hot throw. I use nature c3 wax and pillar of bliss wax.


Chemicals !

Love this scent, but won't buy it again until they reformulate, without phthalates !


Love this scent! It has a great scent throw and nice smell to it and you can really smell it
when you walk in a room. Versatile and nice!


Cranberry Marmalade

I honestly wasn't in love with this out of the bottle, it was a little too woodsy. But, I made a candle with it today and it smells so different than it did in the bottle. I love it so much, I don't pick up a woodsy scent at all. It's more cinnamon and cranberries. So far, it's my favorite.

Ivory Forest

I really like this scent, but I just could not move it for some reason. It's hard to predict what your customers will like though when you're selling on Etsy and not in person.

The Burning Mitten

LOVE this fragrance but when I put it in candles I keep getting a fuel like smell... anyone else have this problem? pointers?


Love the scent

This FO gave a really strong cold and hot throw. It has more cinnamon smell than cranberry. This fragrance made my house smell really good.



OMG I love this scent, my customers love this scent too.. I just introduced it 2 days ago and I have to order another bottle.. Thanks Candlescience



My absolute favorite, and a customer favorite! I like it alone or with other spice fragrances. I've been mixing it with pumpkin souffle! Unbelievable!

Holly Corcoran

Amazing Scent - Needs to be Reformulated!

I absolutely love this fragrance oil. It gives off an amazing hot and cold throw and has been a favorite of my customers, however I have discontinued usage in my candles because of the presence of phthalates, which raise many different health concerns. At this day in age, it is so important to be health conscious and aware of what we are exposing our bodies to. Please reformulate this FO! It's dearly missed.

Emily B

Very Strong

This smells very good and it's very strong. Made tarts and candles with this and from only putting one small tart in the warmer in my living room, you can smell it throughout my entire house. Will definitely purchase this again. Everyone that has entered my house has asked what smells so good.



Hello, I also tried this fragrance and I love the smell. I used it in the IGI6006.
However, the hot throw was pretty faint for me as well. I do not have FO throw issues with this wax typically. I also am using a wick size that has worked well so far for me with this wax and container size. However, I am wondering if I should be trying a different wick series. I am currently using the ECO series. Anyone else suggest something different?




I love this scent. It does have a strong cinnamon tone but its not overwhelming.


Love It!

Great scent for fall or Christmas. I can see this becoming a best seller all year long. Amazing HT in soy


Nice. Very crisp and strong.



Love this one. You will not be disappointed!!



This is everyones favorite! You cannot go wrong with this scent. you should always have this one on your shelf for sale. Everyone buys one! I personally love it so much, I would wear a candle around my neck so I could smell it all day. I smell the spiced apple cider right away. Then the cinnamon, orange and clove. Then a sweet creamy cranberry that reminds me of gelato topped with cranberry jam. Perfect combination of sugar and spice.


Smells good but smells like cinnamon, not cranberry.


My favorite

I can't say anything about this fragrance that everyone else rating it 5 stars hasn't already said. I'm the type of person that can burn Cinnamon and Pumpkin Souffle all year round, but this is my all time favorite. This MUST be a part of your candle line.


Holiday! Holiday! Holiday!

Absolutely our favorite FO! Sweet yet tart, spicy sassy cranberry! Have done this with many variations, from bright Christmas red to deep magenta with a drop of blue for depth. Spice up your candles with Cranberry Marmalade! Or use a touch less for a subtle sweetness. PERFECT!!

Windhorse Studio

Wonderful Scent

I bought a sample of this with the .99 cent sale last week or two weeks ago and WOW, it's nice and sweet. Reminds me of cherry though. I will be buying a bigger bottle for sure! I use an ounce of this with 8 oz. of CB ADVANCED WAX for melts and tarts or I use the GB464 Wax, 16 oz., with 2 oz. of oil. Hot and cold throw is amazing! Make sure to let it cure at least 3 days for a strong candle or tart!


I read how great this scent is and bought some . I made 4 oz. candles. However, I don't have much hot throw. I am new to making candles any advice? I used a pound of Golden Brands Soy 464 and 1 oz. of Cranberry Marmalade.


Smells AMAZING!!!

I ordered this fragrance for the first time to offer as part of my Fall candle line. When I opened the bottle for the first time.....OH MY GOODNESS!!!! This fragrance smells SOOOooooo GOOD! I know for a fact that this scent will fly off the shelves!!!

Artisan Candle Maker

Yum Yum Yum

This is my best seller and a personal favorite! It's sweeter than a typical cranberry--not exactly what I think of when I hear cranberry, but I like that because it's more versatile. It has a light tang and a great hot throw! I can't make enough of these candles! I use GB 464. Do yourself a favor and give it a try!


Not what i thought

Although i could smell the cranberry, i smelled more cinnamon. made a great cold throw in my 8 oz. jar using NatureWax C-3, but had a faint hot throw. Oh well.


Cinnamon overpower...

I smell a strong cinnamon top note, i definitely have to use a smaller amount because this fragrance is very strong for my taste however is a great mixer with apple or pine even....



OH MY GOSH. I made just a small 4 oz candle with this and after a week of letting it cure I burned it in my room. Without even lighting the candle I could smell it and then after 5 minutes it filled my whole room and you could smell it in the hallway! This is definitely a keeper for the fall and holiday line of my collection! Love, love, love it! P.S. It has a little more spice than I expected but it makes it that much better for a fall/holiday fragrance!


Love love love!

All of my customers love this scent! It is also one of my FAvs too along with CS banana nut bread and lemon chiffon! Does anyone use gb464 with eco14? If so I could use some pointers!


Cranberry and spice

It was way more spicy than I expected, the clove over powers the cranberry, I am calling it, Cranberry and spice (or maybe the other way around) I added some vanilla bean and creme brulee to sweeten it up.

P.O.E. boy candles

It Is Certainly Cranberry

Great cold and hot throw in Ecoysoya Advanced and PB. Smells of cranberry chutney, or marmalade. Very nice.


Love It!

Equal parts sweet and spicy, but not too spicy you get a headache, just the right amount....smells wonderful in M&P!

Theresa H.


This fragrance is quite potent. My only complaint is that the cinnamon overpowers everything else. I hardly smelled any cranberry; nonetheless, this scent is an amazing seller and a spicy addition to any collection.

Blake Menchaca

<3 LOVE IT!!

This is a great scent for everyday or holidays, great throw cold and hot!



This was a hit, Filled the whole house up. Everybody loves this GB464 Eco#10



This is an excellent scent! I usually do NOT like cranberry scents, but this one blew me away!! It has a great hot throw. It had my whole kitchen smelling wonderful within hrs. Will definitely be a best seller for me. Thank you so much CS. I will definitely be ordering more!!


Big Seller!

I CP soaped this fragrance and sold out last Christmas! This soaps wonderfully and the scent smells AWESOME! The scent also sticks, it will discolor to a medium reddish brown. I used Vanilla stabilizer for the top layer & left the bottom layer brown. Candle Science you are the BEST!

Vanessa Berkesch


Cranberry Marmalade 1 0z. in 1 Pound of Ecosoya CB Advanced 100% Soy, in 48 Hours Cure time the cold throw was good. 4 Days Total Cure time WOW! the cold and hot throw was outstanding. Medium Strong-Cranberry Scent & slight Spice was Delightful!!!



I am so in love with this scent. It is so strong and smells so yummy.



This scent has a great cold and hot throw. I burned candle at a party and everyone loved it.



This is by far the best cranberry scent ever! Worked great in IGI 6006 and I also made a small bottle of room and linen spray with such a small amount of the FO and wow did it smell strong. This one is a keeper!


Love It!

I love cranberry scents, but this one is by far the best I have ever smelled.


The Best

This scent is among the favorite of my customers. Works as both holiday and non-holiday scent. Excellent hot and cold throw in GB 464 and GB 444.



This scent sold out first out of a bunch of soy candles I had made for a craft fair. Everyone absoultely loved it.


Great Scent

I really didn't know what to expect because this was my first fo that was not "regular" and I love it-the throw is so nice and the scent is clean and spicy at the same time. I really am enjoying this scent.


Great Holiday Scent

This is the perfect Christmas scent! Has a really nice balance of fruit and spice. I love this one.



This is absolutely beautiful! I just got done pouring and am waiting to pour my second colored layer in my palm candles and it's got the perfect blend of fruit and spice.

Christine G


Thi is by far one of the best scents I have ever tried. I poured it last night and broughtit in to work today and just left the lid off. Everyone kept asking what that wonderful smell was. I can't wait for it to cure so I can burn it.


Awesome Cranberry Scent

I have never tried a cranberry scent before and this one has an amazing cold and hot scent throw! I used 7% in EL Millenium Blend wax and it was delicious. Filled my whole family room, cathedral ceiling and within an hour!
Very fruity with a hint of clove, I think. A+++

J. Allard

Best Cranberry ever! Very strong!Wonderful!

I love this scent. Best cranberry I've ever tried. Scent throw is amazing in Ecosoya CB135.

Cathy C.


This one is A++!! Very strong in soy excellent trow. Filled my bathroom and hall with just a small votive.

Deanna M

Awesome Cranberry

I tested it in GB415, let cure 48 hrs. Was drifting from room to room in about an hour, filled my entire small house in less than 3 hrs. This is the best cranberry I have found in 9 yrs. No bakery, no spice....just juicy cranberries. I love it!

Karen Leonard


Cranberry Marmalade might be the perfect Autumn/Holiday scent. It is deliciously fruity with just a touch of spice. It threw like crazy in Cargill C-3 contianer soy, filled my Mom's whole house. It is now her favorite scent!

Carrie Govek C*G Candles


This is such and awesome scent! There is not alot of spice in this one but you do not miss it! Super strong. Great alone or I like to mix it with bayberry during the Holidays.
