We did not experience any acceleration or separation. The batter was slow to come to trace and very easy to work with. After 24 hours, we could see the soap had reached a partial gel, just through the very center. We observed an unusual discoloration pattern; the outer edges of the soap had turned a dark mustard yellow while the inner area turned a gold color. The scent was quite strong and more of the woody notes came through. After 30 days, the soap had discolored to a light brown shade and the scent became much more balanced although it was not quite as strong. The discoloration would make this a great fragrance to experiment with a wood grain pattern by using various amounts of titanium dioxide.

Intoxicating Scent

I used this in soaps and it smells SO good! I would describe it as a smoky, musky, sultry scent.


Great Scent from the Bottle. CT is great. No HT.

I love the way this smells in the bottle and you can smell it very strong after the candle is made. Once I light the candle though, there is zero hot throw. I've tried different FO %, I've tried pouring my wax at different temps, I've tried adding FO at different temps and have had zero luck. I wish I knew how to get the hot throw from this FO.

This is one of my favorite scents and everyone else likes it too. It also handles well in CP soap.


Love it!

This scent smells amazing!!


Safety or scent...

It seems to me that all these revisions to make the FO’s meet the new safety standards have severely compromised the quality of the fragrances. The claim that the strength of these fragrances have remained in tact after revisions are for the most part, flat out lies. Frankincense and Myrrh and this Egyptian Amber being two of the biggest. They both smell the same but the strength of these two in particular are extremely muted and have almost no hot throw. I personally use 464 and I have already had complaints from customers saying that they can’t smell them unless they put their face in it. Obviously not the goal here. I have a good standing relationship with my customers and I’d like to keep it that way. So it seems we can either have strict and safe standards or great smelling FO’s but apparently not both.

Smells Amazing

I bought a sample of this scent and it is absolutely amazing, everyone who smells it falls in love with this scent. I'm not sure why others are having trouble with it. I use 444 and get a great HT and CT using HTP wicks but I do put my FO in at 157, not 185.

What happened??

I absolutely loved this scent. It's been a best seller for me but as of lately it has no CT or HT. You have to get so close to smell it even a little bit. I am so disappointed. Did the formula change? I never had this problem before. Any advice on how to fix this issue? I would've easily given it 5 stars when it worked better in my candles.


It smells amazing in the bottle but I cant smell it almost at all with 464 and 444 wax! It is like the smell is non existent unless you are super close to the candle. Very disappointed with the hype.


My Favorite!

This is one of my favorite from CandleScience. I used it in CP soap, added titanium dioxide to help with the discoloration; the soap turned a bit tan, but I will definitely make soap with it again. The bars I made smell deliciously good. Thanks CS! I love ordering from you. You guys are the best of all suppliers I order from. Everything on point always. I hope you can offer more cold process soap supplies, such as carrier oils, essential oils, and some other addictives. Thanks!


This FO is in my TOP 5 !!!

Love, love this scent. The aroma lasts a long time after it's been burned. The CT and HT are amazing in IGI6006 wax @ 8.5% FO w/ ECO series wicks and 4 drops of honey liquid candle dye. All materials from CS. I choose to lower my fragrance load to enhance the HT. In my experience, the thicker the FO I usually lower the fragrance load which actually increases the HT. I poured several single wick and 3-wick candles using only Egyptian Amber, no blending. I am a huge supporter of blending; however, this FO is perfect all on its own.

Rick Maloney, Pour & Penchant

Very Nice Scent, But No HT

Egyptian Amber is one of my favorite scents from CS; it's a little spicy, musky, but also sweet like honey or spiced vanilla. The CT is very nice, especially mixed with some other scents. However, the HT is almost non-existent; I've tried several different ways of adding the oil to the wax (444) and at various different loads (6% to 12%), yet the result is always the same. I don't use 464 for my business, so I'm hoping those users get a bit more luck with the HT.

Otherwise, I like the scent a lot.


Amber and fresh air

This isn't the warm, vanillic, heavy amber in a lot of fragrances. The ozone and jasmine make it lighter and more like perfume, in a light, fresh way and the ozone note is true. I wish CandleScience sold that note as a single note for perfume blending! It's outstanding. Here in this mix, it adds that light breezy feeling without making the scent aquatic. Very nice.


Loved It!!

I used this scent as apart of my masculine line of candles & WOW!!!!!!! No exaggeration... it is amazing. Hints of honey and musk. It’s not a super strong scent but most of my male scents are so this is perfect for your customers who like subtle scents. 100% satisfied.

Cherie Scents

Amazing scent

Used this in cold process soap, I added vanilla stabilizer to make it a lighter color. It is a great deep amber scent, it’s one of my favs, I renamed it amber and honey and it sold out.

Helen Kratochvil

Wonderful warm earthy fragrance!


Amazing warm, earthy candle fragrance

I got this as my free 1oz sample and honestly, I regret not buying it sooner. Gorgeous, deep and rich, warm earthy scent. Used at 6% in soy 444. Admittingly, I haven't burned the candle yet so I cant comment on scent throw.


Very pleasant

I agree with the other reviewer that said this is in the middle of masculine and feminine... it's a real nice scent and my testers are pleased. I personally am I fan of burning this. I have increased the FO load on all my candles as I like a nice strong candle that will fill up a room. 12% FO, add at 185 and no issues with sinking, etc. Have used this in some mixer practice candles and I feel it adds a nice base for the lighter FO's in the blend.

Kyle, Minnesota

Love it!

This scent is middle road between masculine and feminine and smells AMAZING! I didn't have trouble with the throw but I mixed it in 464 at 60 degrees. Try the lower temp so the scent doesn't burn off.

Rebbeca-Lavender Lady Candles


This is my favorite scent. I find it to be elegant. I use it in my status jars. No dye. I agree it is a soft scent and works great in smaller areas. I may try using 12% load next time and use a smaller jar.



Hands down, one of my favorite scents for CP soap. It's not my fave out of bottle, but the scent changed during cure to become so balanced and smooth! It's the perfect unisex scent and I had no problems using for CP design. No acceleration, separation or discoloration (I did a zebra stripe design and soap at room-temp).

Mixed Feelings

This FO smells amazing straight from the bottle and I had high expectations until I mixed it with 464 at 185deg for my candles. Unfortunately the CT and HT are veery light and mild. I would have preferred if it was more intense. I could only smell it when I am just inches away. Any recommendations on how to better use it as I really like the smell...?
