Really strong

Used at 10% with para soy blend igi6006. The smell is much better in the wax than in the jar. Could only be lit for a few minutes because the smell was overpowering. I will try next fall using at 6 or 8% because I like the fragrance and think scaling back will help. I learned by slowing down the cooling process eliminates sink holes and this one sinks. I heated the oven to 170 to heat jars and turned off the oven while I poured. Then carefully put the candles in the cooling oven to slow the cooling process with no sinkholes. Also it didn't sell well. Hopefully next year with less fragrance it will sell better.

Crafter

Mixed feelings about this one! Very overpowering, but customers seem to like it. Didn't work well with Golden Brands 444. Sink holes, and major discoloration. Other fragranced batches turned out fine. Any suggestions?

Be careful in Cold Process soaping: this fragrance may have the scent that you want, but it heats up and accelerates. Plan accordingly and work quickly!

Love this scent

We are a new company making beeswax candles. When we were looking to expand our selection for the holidays this year we bought the Frankincense & Myrrh just to try it as my wife and I have never smelt it before. We are so glad that we tried it. We fell in love with it and our customers as well. Well done CandleScience!!!!

In love!

I am positively IN LOVE with this scent! I had a request for "something that smells like a Catholic Church incense" and I thought instantly of Frankincense and Myrrh. I didn't expect to love it as much as I do! It's definitely something I'm going to order again - even if I just use it for myself!

Finally Found It!

I have been searching for this version of F&M for a long time and trying every vendor. One day CandleScience had a FO sale and I decided to try this company and their Frankincense and Myrrh and at last my search was over. I use to buy candles and bath products from a vendor who seemed to have a unique version of this scent. I tried to find it everywhere and now I know where they got it from, haha!

I am looking forward to making my own candles and bath and body products with this fragrance.

It is not your typical F & M as it is more feminine and soft with a powdery background that reminds me of either light baby powder or the lady slippers orchid candle from Yankee candles but not quite. Not the resiny or earthy fragrance one might typically expect with Frankincense or Myrrh alone. I love it! Please do not discontinue this version.

I love this!!

This is one of my favorite scents. Earthy, mystic and luxurious.

Candle Maker

Wow! I was a little hesitant about pulling this scent into my line-up, but I needed something to round out my selections. I can not believe how well this scent sells (soy candles). It has become one of my more requested scents, all year round. I would've never thunk it, but the customers love it and I'm going to give the customers what they want!!

Yuck

I was really excited to try this scent, but it's intensely chemical and really off-putting. The scent dulls a bit when used in soy wax, but the unpleasantness doesn't abate at all. I don't think I want to light these candles, much less give them away or sell them. This scent was two thumbs down for me.

Please do not ever stop producing this fragrance...it is one of my most requested holiday fragrances....I use it only in candles - a para/soy mix and it is wonderful ---

does not smell remotely like frankincense

This smells so nasty - like baby powder and cologne from a dollar store. It has nothing in common with the way frankincense smells.

Not a fan

I don't understand how folks like this.....very strong in CP soap. Smells like Old lady perfume. I fell for the name. Oh how I wanted this to be good for a Christmas soap but I just can't give it to anyone.

Owner

I have used this scent on my candles, melts, soap, lotions and whipped body butter and not one person has said they did not like the scent, instead they said they love it. By far my most selling fragrance oil, love it.

This is my best seller, all year round! Please never stop making this wonderful scent!

Wow!

I had no idea what this would smell like and was pleasantly surprised! I tested it in tart form first and it was so strong, I had to turn off my warmer for a bit. Filled the entire house! It might be my new fav!

Not a fan

I was really hoping for a great strong scent and this ,to my husband and I, just smells like baby powder. Very light mild scent that won't fill up a room. Not a fan of this scent

Owner/President, SwampFires

Love this scent! This is one of our best sellers no matter where we show. Nice hot throw in votive candles and wonderful room-filling scent with tarts. Ecosoya PB Pillar wax.
Also great in melt-and-pour soaps. Customers come back for this scent every year. Love!

no hot throw and doesnt smell like frankincense and myrrh

I got a sample of this and it doesn't smell like frankincense and myrrh to me. When i used it in pillar blend soy wax i did not get a decent hot throw. cold throw was good but smell overall isnt to my liking.

My wife hates it, I love it! Awesome throw in wax. hot and cold. The proof of how good this is in sales. Had it for years big seller, sells all year long.

Lacking

decent throw hot and cold in GB464, but the fragrance is awful. There was no complexity to the scent, it just smells like my grandmother. If you're looking for a nice grandmother scent, this is the one for you. Otherwise, skip it.

Not quite what I expected.

I love Bergamot and Sandalwood, as a massage therapist I use both of these essential oils in my massage oil. I was hoping that there was only a hint of Patchouli. The only thing I could smell was the Patchouli. However, if you want a strong scent, this is the one. Glad I tried as a sample first.

Very Strong

Although I do not care for the scent, this fragrance has excellent hot and cold through in soy wax (I used a fragrance load of 12%). It just has too much of a patchouli scent for my liking.

Just like incense but better!

Made soy candles with this fragrance and its awesome.
Smells like incense without the smoke.
I sell incense in my store and frankincense is a year around favorite.
Thanks for making this one!
