REVISION NOTICE: It is our policy to notify customers if any part of a fragrance was changed for any reason.

As of May 2, 2019 our Creme Brulee was revised to meet our stringent safety standards of being Phthalate-free. The original strength and fragrance characteristics have been preserved. To see details of the previous version, click here.

Break through the crunchy caramelized sugar crust into this classic dessert scent. Creme Brulee features top notes of lightly torched sugar and a hint of coconut before giving way to a rich creamy custard heart. A dash of rum elevates the vanilla and maple base. Indulge your senses with Creme Brulee candles and wax melts, or create decadent body lotions, sugar scrubs, and soaps.

This fragrance oil is infused with natural essential oils including vanilla absolute, and styrax resin.

We did not experience any acceleration or separation. The mixture quickly became an emulsion but took a little longer than usual to come to a thin trace. The batter did turn to a bright honey mustard yellow once it was at trace. After 24 hours the color was a dark mustard yellow. The scent was a little light, but smelled amazing. The soap only reached a partial gel but still overheated through the center. After 30 days the color is a dark chocolate brown and the scent is deliciously strong.

Sooo good

I never review any of the fragrances I choose, and I never thought I’d actually like a bakery scent but THIS creme brûlée is EVERYTHING! Perfect for your fall collection. Hot throw is outstanding and cold throw is decent. I’m now ordering ANOTHER bottle for my candles. Best seller for sure!

Will definitely re-order!

Smells amazing with hot and cold throw! Nice and strong and it hits you in the face with a warm vanilla, and then follows up with caramel notes. I think I’m just going to make it my vanilla. It’s so perfect.

This scent was perfect. Made my kitchen smell like I was baking up a storm.

Sweet Scents
Candle Maker

I’m normally a huge fan of sweet bakery type scents. Banana Nut Bread, and Bluberry Cobbler, are a couple of my all time favs... But this FO is CLOYINGLY sweet and extremely strong! Tried mixing it with a softer fruit FO to tone down the sweetness and it totally overpowered the fruit scent when burned. Never thought I’d say this, but I wish it were a bit more subtle. Used it in 6046 @ 9% and was completely overwhelmed.

Mix Master

okay, wow! this FO hits it out of the park. It's not a very strong smell - in CP soap after curing for a couple weeks I was having to really take some deep whiffs, but the smell that you do get is incredible. very delicate vanilla scent, it just smells absolutely heavenly. I wish it was stronger but I will probably just put more in next time. not overpowering with the rum or burnt sugar notes, i just smell lovely vanilla custard and this is probably one of my favorite smells ever.

Not my favorite

If you like really deep, strong, sweet scents, this is for you! I thought it would be softer...

Smells Fantastic!

It smells soooo good, I maxed wax melts and while I was waiting for them to cool, I could smell it all through the house! So good.

The Luxe Siren Apothecary
So good!

My customers LOVE this scent! It pleases everyone who prefers rich, bakery scents. It is a very strong scent that will fill multiple rooms with it's deliciousness!

New Candlemaker, this is wonderful!

I've made over a dozen candles (still working on making labels to sell) and this scent is the best. All of the scents I have are good (Snickerdoodle, Apples and Maple bourbon, Strudel and spice, and cinnamon and vanilla) I keep going back to the Creme Brulee and smelling it, it's so wonderful. Even my husband likes it so I know it's good lol. It reminds me of walking into my moms house when I would go to visit her (She always had candles burning) My mom has passed away so smelling this makes me remember the warm feeling I used to get visiting her :) Thank you Candlescience :) I'm sure once I have everything ready for my candles to sell that this will be a best seller, especially here in Michigan where walking into a warm yummy smelling house from the freezing cold is the best.

I absolutely love this fragrance. Great fragrance when cold and hot. I used the 444 wax, melted at 185, added fragrance oil at 140 and poured candle at 103 into glass jars. Very excited about candle making looking forward for some sales.

Awesome scent

This one is very popular and has a delicious, warm and sweet scent. Cold throw is great and it really fills the room. Love it.

Candles by Terri
Wow this is yummy

You really hit the nail on the head with this one everyone loves it smells like what can I say crème brûlée definitely a must try

Scarlett Lites

I got the creme brulee discontinued version before I got this one and there is definitely a difference between the two. The discontinued version is definitely better, its more Creme. This new version had a more burnt smell to it and I definitely dont like it as much.

Yum, smells like buttered rum

Love! Smells like the discontinued buttered rum, which was popular among customers.


Wow! Creme Brulee is awesome! Fantastic cold and hot throw in my 464 soy candle! I'll be ordering a big bottle of this next time. I predict this will be a customer favorite!
