Frankincense and Myrrh (Discontinued Version) 04/11/20

Great! I diffused this fragrance in my home. It's a very light and soothing scent. Not overly musky or strong at all. Although I love musky scents. They're so natural and beautiful because they smell like your home just smells like that naturally. Candle Science's Frankincense and Myrrh reminds me of original Skin So Soft by Avon, if you know what that smells like. Or like a very light sandalwood scent. It's really nice. Glad it's part of my collection.

Bottle leaked

The smell is Divine, but the bottle wasn’t well sealed and leaked like a 1/4 of the contents from my 8oz bottle. Im really upset by it as it’s not cheap.

Live in CA and I just can't...

Got a small amount for myself and I love it. I cannot, however, use this to blend with because I live in CA and my customers would have to be informed about the Prop 65 content. Finding the right F&M that isn't too powdery (so many of them are) is awesome, but its just no good to me and that is a shame. I have to order from other companies and that means I end up purchasing a small amount from here, and larger amounts in other places, which I would absolutely spend here. This is such a staple scent for so many. Please, please, please update this so it isn't cancer causing and (if any way possible) to have a higher flashpoint. Even five more degrees would make the world of difference. Either way right now if I brought this into my shop the entire line would end up not selling because this one product had to have a warning label.

A classic scent for good reason! I absolutely adore it. Its fairly strong, but there's no complaints from me

Frankincense and Myrrh is a huge seller. It is smooth and lovely. However, I did have to eliminate it from the candle line I created for a skin care company because of the Prop 65 warning. Please update it soon!!! I would give it 5 stars if not for that!

Too strong

This scent gave me a headache! Didn't really smell of frankincense much. More of a strong perfumey smell. Was looking more for the one that smells like B&BW version.

Pleasantly surprised

When smelling it in the bottle I wasn't too impressed. But when I mixed it in with my candle it smelled amazing. This is one of my top 3 scents.
