I’m not even a floral fragrance lover, but this one crossed me over. Such a stunning and organic blend of floral. Exceptional hot/cold throws, blends beautifully with paraffin and also blends seamlessly with other oils for signature scents. CandleScience knocks it out of the park again.

Cold Process Soap Performance
Lye Water Temperature 110ºF
Oil temperature 119ºF
We experienced a moderate amount of acceleration, but no separation occurred. The fragrance is fast-moving so prepare to work quickly. We suggest adding the fragrance as late as possible to allow for more time to work. Once the soap was in the mold, we noticed it reached a full gel within 30 minutes with no insulation. After 24 hours there was no discoloration, and the scent was mild. We did not see any sign of overheating. After the cure, the soap had a tan shade, and the scent was mild. Because this fragrance accelerates, a single color or a simple layer design is best.
We use English Garden in our Spring collection every year. It’s our bestselling floral scent. It’s got the perfect amount of sweetness to it and has a very strong cold and hot throw, but beware because it may be too strong for some. We use at 10% in 464 wax
Only negative is that we always have to reheat the tops when pouring this scent, we can never get a smooth top regardless of what we do. Bumpy, sinkholes, poor adhesion...
I made a batch of CP soap with this yesterday. I saw that the notes said it would accelerate trace, which is absolutely did, but I saw no mention of ricing. As I mixed the fragrance oil in (I was at light to medium trace), it immediately riced. I tried to stick blend it out as much as possible, but to no avail. I mashed it into my mold as quickly as possible, but still ended up with air pockets and CHUNKS of fragrance oil that had riced.
All in all, the soap smells great, and I love the fragrance, so definitely try this one out in other mediums. As for this batch, I will have to turn it into laundry soap. :)
It's the perfect floral! One of our top sellers for spring and summer. 464 10% fo. Great throws!
This is NOT a strong hot or cold throw It would be ok in a bathroom but NOT a whole house fragrance.
If your looking for strong this is not it.
My Batch; 72oz(6-12oz jars) 464 wax I use 6oz fragrance One week cure time.
I used it in cold process soap, it immediately started ricing and by the time I sat the rubber spatula down to move the mold it was a solid so I scooped and smashed it into the mold with a big spoon. It smells fantastic so I hope that some of it turns out and it isn’t a complete wash. I will use in lotions too.
If I were to go to England and browse through countryside gardens, this is what I would expect the breeze to smell like. Customer response to this scent in bar soap was through the top. Sold out. It's a good one to try. A++
This FO is the perfect floral garden scent! Definitely a must try!
I give this fragrance 5 stars for the scent as well as the notes about the performance. This smells AWESOME in my CP soap and has a beautiful and lasting sent. It did accelerate trace, but I whisked in right before pouring into my mould and did not have any issues. It cut and cured beautifully and 5 1/2 weeks later still smells amazing. The soap description saved my life as I had a totally different idea for this fragrance before reading & changed to a single color which saved my soap.
This fragrance is lovely but it accelerates the soap a lot. I did add it at the last minute, and it started ricing. It is still in mold as I write this. I am hoping the finished product is not ruined. I bought more than a sample so I guess I will have to learn how to make candles to use up the remaining fragrance.
I ordered this oil when the 1 oz oils were recently on sale. Great gold throw and I am currently testing it in my master bathroom. Amazing floral but not overpowering. I can smell it as soon as I start into the master bedroom. Will definitely order again!!
I love this scent. My soy candles sell out quickly! However, this scent does not work for soap making. I use 50% coconut, 25% olive, and 25% grape seed oils. I followed the directions about adding at the last minute. I have tried twice but it turns to a chunky mess before it’s in my loaf mold. The soap is unusable.
Beautiful fragrance. Nice blend of lightly sweet and gentle florals.
I absolutely love the scent, but I can’t seem to get a clean pour with this fragrance.
I heat my 464 to 180, mix fragrance at 160, and pour at 110. This works perfectly for all of my candles except this scent. It seems as if the fragrance never blends correctly, and the candle is a weird texture, and somewhat wet once set.
Works fine with my 4 oz tins, but 10oz straight sides jars, they’re hideous.
I love this scent!
Great but way too strong at 10% - next time I will use 5%
English Garden is primarily a rose smell. Customers really like it! I use this one during the summer, but I think this one could be appropriate through the fall too. It has one of the strongest hot throws in my line at a 9% fragrance load.
I have problems keeping this candle in stock. Smells amazing and is quite strong when lit. My customers love it!
This is a beautiful clean FO. I have only used it in soaps and it is wonderful. It is green and flower without being bitter or too sweet. It has the perfect name and picture for it. It feels like I am walking through a garden on a rainy day in London. I would not use it on candles just because I know my demographic, but I think it is perfect for body products.
This is my absolute favorite floral from any company! I use 10% fragrance load in my soy candles and even after curing for only a few days it’s got an amazing hot throw. It makes a beautiful, feminine liquid hand soap and lotion as well. It truly smells like walking into a spring garden. A wonderful floral scent without being sweet and it’s great for those who enjoy florals but typically get headaches from them because this scent isn’t cloying at all. Love love love 💕
I decided I wanted to start making candles so I came to Candle Science for my supplies. Usually when I buy candles (Yankee or BBW) I stay away from floral scents because I have allergies (and I'm making candles, LOL). Maybe the fourth time I made candles I tried English Garden. I used GB464 (2lb) and 2oz. The cold throw was beautiful. I waited almost a week to light one to do a burn test and to check the hot throw. This sent does not disappoint! This is my favorite one so far. I know at some point I have to blow out the candle, but I really don't want to.
Smells EXACTLY like a fresh bouquet of flowers! Very impressed with this one!
I love this scent! It smells like a lawn lined with tons of flower bushes!
Lover of all flowers. Can't wait to try in my parasoy. Purchasing a bigger bottle.
Used at 9% in Para soy blend and the smell is amazing. It is selling so fast I'm going to have to reorder a couple big bottles
My mother is a floral designer and this fragrance combo is all too familiar to me. Bouquet of wild flowers captured in a bottle.
I poured this today although I have had the oil for a while. IT IS LOVELY.
This smells like a countryside of flowers. If you love florals, this is an amazing mix of many floral scents.
I haven't put it on the shelves yet so I cannot speak to its reputation yet. I can't see that anyone that loved a sweet floral scent would not like this.
