Here we are again. I love this fragrance oil.

(Copied & pasted from my Raspberry Sangria review)
I have historically loved Candle Science and sang CS's praises, every time the opportunity presented itself. I've referred more people than I can quantify. However, I'm VERY disappointed that Candle Science is revising a fragrance oil that already doesn't have a prop 65 warning and is already phthalate free. It's almost as if they think we have nothing better to do than retest every fragrance in their catalog, and 8 times put of 10, to end up looking elsewhere to find a new fragrance to replace theirs in our product lines. This is getting old.


Fig wonderful

I love the scent of Fig and this is a very unique blend. It’s not overly sweet but it has a unique hint of green to it. Such a nice twist on Fig. This is a great addition to our line.

I love it!

I'm new in a candle making but I work many years in perfumery, Fig scents were always good sellers. Same with this FIG TREE. So fresh and calming.



This Fig tree scent is my best seller so far! I am very new to candle making, and after a few tries, I was able to make a perfect cold and hot throw on all of it. Thank you Candle Science!

Man, this stuff smells so good. I can't wait to get it out to the craft shows to see how people take to it. I made eight candles three days ago, and I can't wait to smell them after they have cured for a week or so. I better order some more. I use GB 464 soy wax. I tend to pour half of the 1 ounce fragrance oil in at 10 degrees less than the flashpoint. Stir for three minutes and then pour the other half 20 degrees cooler, stir for another two minutes and pour. Don't forget to heat your jars up for 30 seconds. Helps prevent air bubbles.

Earthy, clean and rich. It's the perfect outdoorsy fragrance.


Fig tree

This FO is spicy, earthy, but very sweet and tangy! It’s an unforgettable scent. I love it!



I love they way this smells! I used it in cold process soap and it behaved perfectly.

Dear CandleScience,

If you discontinue this scent, Fig Tree or Frasier Fur or White Sage and Lavender or Cranberry Woods I will shrivel up and die and I'm pretty sure that's exactly what will happen because these scents are MY LIFE. So plllllllllllease keep them!!! I beg you.


A great staple

I love this scent, as do my customers. It’s feminine and you can’t put your finger on what’s in it, but it just smells good. It performs well in the gb264 Wax.
If you haven’t tried this scent, you are doing your customers a disservice! It’s a year round staple in my candle line for sure.


Perfect fresh fragrance

This scent is wonderful! Perfect balance of feminine and bright with deep, masculine cologne notes. It truly has an elegant smell on its own- some people said it even smells “beachy”. If you’re looking for a scent that has a body and soul without being kind of heavy and smothering (sugared vanilla, maple etc.) and without being too fruity and citrusy this is definitely the fragrance for you.


Great scent! It's not too sweet and not too woody.


Good scent

This is a good scent, you won’t be disappointed!


Well hello....

It's deep, it's dark, it's a little feminine, but also masculine. Like a guy showing up to Book Club and conversing confidently on Elizabeth Gaskell, AND listening to others' insights. Looks smashing as a dark red candle.


Great Scent! A Favorite

After reading the comments I decided to give this one a try and I'm glad I did! It's a favorite one for customers and I keep getting orders on this one I need to get a bigger bottle tho. It smells very nice I use with GB 464


Love this scent

First time trying this scent and absolutely loved it. Teakwood has been one of my favorites but I think Fig Tree has become a new favorite. FO load at 8% in 464 came out perfect.



It's funny when you read such varied comments on a scent, but that's what makes us all individuals, I guess. So, I just wanted to add another positive to the comments section. Fig Tree has been one of my best sellers for the past several years..customers just can't get enough of it! I use 1/1 in GW 464.


It's middle of the road for me

Not fruity, not woody, not sweet, not green. It's almost like it can't make up its mind as to what it wants to be. It burned well in GB464 with ok hot scent throw in a jelly jar.

Silvergrove Scentsations

Didn't expect to like this one, but it wasn't bad. Performed well in GB 464.

The Burning Mitten

Like it!

The description for this fragrance is very accurate...I would also add that it's a tad spicy and a tad perfumy. Overall, I think this is a a good scent not sure if it's too perfumy for me.



Im not sure where the poster below gets a detergent smell from. I think it smells amazing, sophisticated + warm !
It's great in soy too .....Not that tacky knock your head off strong but just right.


Not what I expected

I was disappointed with this. It smelled nothing like Fig tree. It was not sweet, or foodie. It was refreshing though, but more detergent like. I wanted to use this as a mixer, but couldn't because it's not foodie scent. I had to use the other fig scent.

Wireback & Co. Candles


This is an awesome scent. Lite musk and earthy sweet. It grabs everyone's attention. It's definitely an A+++.


Just Ok

This is a simple and soft scent. Nothing to exciting . I did not get a strong hot or cold throw.


Not sweet

although I'm new to candle making, from a not so experienced nose, it doesn't smell sweet. It reminded me of a more fragrant detergent smell. I hope this helps. It's not bad, but I expected something more sweet.


Great scent!

Really love the way this is turning out in my candles! Thanks candle science, I try to buy all my supplies from you!

I used it in a shampoo soap bar....My husband and I both LOVE it!! It smells nice and clean...Good for men and women---not too florally---Haven't tried it in a candle yet...Curious to see if it smells the same!

I had high hopes....

Based on others reviews--I really had high hopes for this FO. I have been seeking a FO that replicates Diptyques Figiuer scent, and after reading everyones reviews of this being "less sweet" and "closer to a luxury scent"--I thought I had scored! I still get a sweetness from this, more floral fig than green fig (which was what I was hoping for).

I did however, give it four stars because compared to other fig FO's from various other sellers--I do think this one is better.

I haven't lit my sample which I had mixed into 464 Soy, so I can't yet comment on the throw.

If anyone has any good Diptyque Figiuer dupe suggestions, I would be ever so thankful to hear!


I used this in CP/HP soap and the scent really sticks. Women and Men both love it, it is crisp, clean, earthy and a touch sweet. A great blend, this will always be on my shelf. I've had lots of repeat orders for soaps, and candles.


This scent is my all time favorite!


Amazingly lovely scent!

Immediately came back to buy in a bigger size. Fresh, smooth, slightly sweet and slightly earthy. My new favorite.


So fresh and clean perfect for spring and summer

I love this fresh clean fig scent. I had a fair this weekend and couldn't keep it on my shelves! Everyone that smelled it bought it! It's a different but very pleasant and delicious scent. If you are looking for a clean scent try it, I think you will agree, this is it!

Smells a little like detergent...

The "sweet" hints didn't come through enough for me and this borderline smelled like detergent / fresh linen. Ordered Mediterranean Fig as well - didn't use it in candles yet but just smelling from the bottle it seemed like it was much more balanced of sweet, fresh, and earthly.


Fig Tree

I expected this to smell like a fig tastes and its definitely not that sweet. OOB this would make a fantastic mens body line. It smells great but not sweet at all.


Complex and Classy

Loved this scent and will reorder larger size. Smells lovely. classy not cheap at all...



This fragrance is really gentle and lovely. I like it a lot. Wonderful for men and women. Very soft and mildly sweet. :)


Sophisticated fragrance

My customers love this fragrance in our bath and body line. Sells very well. I feel it could be a little stronger in our soy wax(GW464.
