Far too few have experienced the flavor burst of fresh figs - notes of strawberry, currant, and blackberry with a depth and character all its own. We've balanced the sweetness with tart notes of rhubarb to create an unusually sophisticated take on a spring and summer fragrance.
This fragrance is infused with natural essential oils, including Orange and Pine.
Top: Rhubarb, Red Currant, Strawberry
Middle: Fig, Blackberry
Base: Vanilla, Wood
Suggested Colors: Red

We did not experience acceleration or separation. The soap batter did turn bright yellow when it reached a light trace. After 24 hours the soap was a honey mustard brown and quite strong. After curing, the soap bars were brown with a strong scent. A darker color palette would be ideal for this fragrance. Reserve a small amount of soap before adding fragrance to add a light color swirl to your design.
So disappointed with the throw when burning. I used 2 oz. to 1 lb, of 464 and couldn't smell it burning. Had to refund customers. I have removed it from my line.
This is a nice clean scent. The cold throw is fantastic. I used 1oz to 1lb 464 soy, but I think I'll have to add more. It wasn't as strong as I would have liked. I am however determined to get the right percentage so as to produce a strong hot throw. I gave it a 5 because I suppose with the correct ratio it'll be fantastic once lit! I'll let you know.
I bought a small bottle of this before reading the reviews and I'm happy I did. I might not have gone for it if I'd seen how others have reacted. Personally, I love this scent! It's very sweet and warm. It would make a nice spring/summer scent. The fig really stands out, but the rhubarb is hovering around as well. It's a superb scent and I plan to get more.
I imagine that this will be a great seller in the summer months. I sort of bought this on a whim after reading the reviews without understanding what it would smell like. It does smell literally like the description. Very nice.
I only ordered a small bottle of this one at first. I am now ordering a large bottle. I haven't made a candle with the oil yet, but based on my experience with other Candlescience oils I'm sure it will have great scent throw. I smell the perfect mix of sweet and tart. The soft berry notes come through when smelling straight from the bottle. Plan to mix this with a Strawberry Rhubarb scent I currently own. Will be a nice addition to my new "Farmhouse" candle collection this spring!
This reminds me of Partylite's Strawberry Rhubarb which I adore. The rhubarb isn't in your face, it's sweetened with figs, strawberries and other fruits. I tested in parasoy and paraffin and the scent in the parasoy wax melt lasted 20 hrs. I will carry this in my line, great scent.
awesome and very popular
can't keep it stocked
unique and very pleasant
I wanted to try this fragrance because I trust Candle Science, and I've enjoyed the other Fig fragrances that they offer. I'm glad that I did!
I've smelled real fig and and rhubarb, separately, and I'd have to say the hot throw is dead on. The fig is a deep rich sweet smell and the rhubarb adds a sharp tartness, resulting in a one of a kind fragrance. It is unfortunate that the majority of reviewers paid no mind to the description before leaving a poor review.
I wanted to take a chance on this scent, so ignoring the reviews ( I mean, we all can't love the same thing all the time, can we?) I ordered. I really didn't like the fragrance even from the bottle, but since I only ordered 1 oz. I decided to give it a fair chance. It does have a slightly more appealing fragrance cold, and I mean SLIGHTLY, but that undertone is there. I had a headache within 5 minutes of pouring and even afterwards with burning. I wouldn't recommend this one.
I wanted to like this so much and it smelled wonderful from the bottle but what get you first is the fig. I love fig. I made this in cphp kind of soap and. Now I have a headache. some scent overtook my fig making it unbearable. It smells like burnt rubber mixed with fig. So sad but I'm glad I bought 1oz only
I don't know what it is about fig, but every time I try a scent with fig in it I can't stand it. I was so hoping the rhubarb would be the dominant scent but it wasn't!
I really wanted to love this one. Out of the bottle and the cold throw is really beautiful. The hot throw, though, has a very very strange undertone that I just could not shake. When we left it burning and came back in it has this weird scent of trash or mold, I actually looked around for some trash that hadn't been thrown out, but it was the candle. My husband likes all the scents and this one he just couldn't take.
I LOVE this scent. I am new to candle making and purchased this on a whim when it was on special even though I had no clue what Rhubarb smelled like, and it ended up being our favorite of the 13 scents we ordered. I used the 1oz sample bottle in 1 pound of GB 464 and think I may try 1.25oz fragrance next time. The hot/cold throw was pleasant, but could be a bit stronger in my opinion. Overall, AMAZING scent that is fresh and not too sweet.
