We did not experience acceleration or separation. Once the soap came to trace the texture of the mixture transitioned into a goopy consistency. It was still fluid enough to pour, but intricate swirls would not be possible with the texture. After 24 hours the soap was pale yellow and very strong. We observed signs of a partial gel with minimal insulation. After curing, the soaps remained a light yellow color, and the scent was strong.
I love strong Christmas Scents and this hits a mark!! My Favorite!!!!
I don’t know what changed with this scent since last year, but what once was lovely, now has almost a zero scented hot throw. Spent tons of time and money on this year’s candles and was too embarrassed to give them as gifts. I also made a few other scented batches and it seems like the ones that were recently changed to “clean” have no hot throw at all. So frustrated, disappointed and will not be buying scents from candle science anymore. Too costly a risk.
LOVE LOVE LOVE this fragrance! Perfect for holiday Christmas tree candles!
This is an authentic fir scent. So natural and lovely. My annual holiday candles are gifts highly anticipated by friends and family. I make them as tea lights, votives and in glass and ceramic jars. I selfishly keep half for myself because they fill my home with a wonderful fragrance that I adore. Thank you Candle Science!!!
Perfect winter/holiday fragrance. Strong & woodsy.
I tried the Christmas Tree oil from CS and sorry, but it was terribly faint and hardly made me think of a Christmas Tree. I switched to Fraser Fir and it’s perfect. Takes me straight to a Christmas tree farm. Blue Spruce is amazing too, but a little on the cozier side imo- whereas Fraser has more of a crispness to it.
This is one of my favorites! The reviews I’ve gotten from friends said the same.
I agree that this fragrance is fruity/sweet. Too sweet. I prefer a more “masculine” scented Fraser Fir. I added cedar wood to it to try and mute the fruity smell. Sometimes I get less sweet when I inhale and other times its like normal. Guess we’ll see when they are done curing how they smell.
Was a little disappointed..definitely not the best Fraser fir... smells a little fruity and really light. Feels like this one should sit for a few months ahead of time. Doesn’t smell Christmasy enough.
This is undoubtedly my number one seller and gift. I boycotted a candle company because they only bring this fragrance once a year fir 3 months and last year they changed it for a different smell. I am in love I am on my 6th gallon and I am new to candle making so I have tested it with 4 types of waxes and it gives me the same strong cold and hot throw. Please please don’t ever take this one away........
The secret to this scent for us has been time! I made these back in September and lit one for a test burn after 14 days. Almost nothing. I put them on a back shelf and revisited them and they are simply amazing! Everything I hoped they would be! I have since poured another few batches and given them 30 days and they are also amazing. I would say these require a longer cure time and are really worth the wait!
I love this scent OOB but it’s really inconsistent. I made a fairly large batch of 4oz candles (200+) and some have amazing cold & hot throw while others have neither!!! Very disappointed with this one. First time I’ve had any problems with oils from CS.
This is one of my favorite scents from Candle Science. I blended it with two other fragrance oils and it reminds me of a time I walked into Anthropologie around the holidays and it smelled just like Christmas. This scent has a great hot and cold throw. I highly recommend it.
I have other scents from your company and the scent throw is excellent. By for some reason I cannot get a hot scent throw from Fraser fir. I made a lot of them to donate to the nurses at the hospital so disappointed because I am not going to be able to give them away because I tried and died no scent throw I will have to donate another one of the scented candles. I was so wanted to love this scent and I was sadly disappointed ☹️. I have not had a problem with a scent throw with any of the other oils I purchased from you!
Hi! Thanks for reaching out to the Support Team so we could assist!
This scent is amazing out of bottle but I’ve been having so much trouble getting a hot throw out of it in my 464 soy candles.
Hi! A member of our team will be reaching out shortly!
I made soap with this fragrance oil, which I love in candles and wax tarts. I use heat transfer method, cold process at 40% lye concentration. I used 75% frasier fir and 25% litsea essential oil. Accelerated big time. Seized up so I had to slap it into a mold. I barely even used a stick blender. So far, every fragrance oil I've used from candle science seized up on me in soap. But, the fragrance oils are strong and smell amazing. I'll go back to full water, room temp and see if that helps next time.
I love this scent, but learned the hard way that I needed to wick up with the amount of dye . I tried the Libby jars with a cd18 wick. Great cold throw, but very poor hot throw. When I wicked up to a cd 20, the hot throw was perfect. I use 8% fragrance oil. Hope this helps others.
Really disappointed with this and a lot of the clean scent revisions. They don’t seem to have any hot or cold throw. At 10% fragrance load in gb 444 I can’t smell this at all.
I soap exclusively with essential oils. Now with candles, I am learning to navigate fragrance oils. I rely on reviews. I have purchased dozens of fragrances from Candle Science. Our container candles are made with Apricot Coconut Creme wax. Of all the scents we have used this one has the absolute best cold throw. I am amazed by how much I love this scent. I don't want to like fragrance oils, but I am being converted. This scent is fabulous and we are excited to bring it to life in our candles.
This is absolutely PERFECT for a Christmas tree scent! It has the perfect mix of fir and citrus. I’m personally not a huge fan of tree scents but my customers love them, and I actually really like this one! Only issue is I’m not getting a very good scent throw. It’s there but it’s not as strong as the other candles in my Christmas line.
I bought 5lb jug since I know it was selling really well last year. But then, I don't know what happened to the oil. I can barely smell! I made a big batch and I don't think I can sell any of them. I even increase the amount oil... seriously, it literally screwed up my plan for the holiday candles... ugh...
I am a huge fan of one particular scent (from an expensive candle and soap company), and was looking for a similar scent to make my own candles. I found reviews from your blog which helped narrow it down for me. It is amazing how similar it is! I am so happy I found this and will now have it whenever I want at a much cheaper cost. Please don't ever discontinue this one.... Thanks so much for the great service and fast shipping.
I’m not a fan a this type of scent. But I do have to say I don’t regret buying this fragrance. I Only regret that I didn’t order a bigger bottle. Love it !!!
I don't tend to leave a review, but I appreciate reading the comments other people leave here. So Im doing my part in hope to help others :) I have been struggling with other candle suppliers (N.W., W.F. for example - who are not upfront, and many without reviews on their products). I bought Fraser Fir and Cyprres & Bayberry from CS based solely on the reviews... and it was the best decision EVER!!!! I got my boss and his entirely family hooked up. Also my husband and myself! I bought Cypress & Bayberry version from W.F. in MI (they call it Yankee Balsam Cedar Type) and it is not nearly as good as this one from CS. I use Well Soy Flakes from W.F. with 3 tablespoons of stearic (per Lb or 453.592 grams) and 3 grams of vybar for the entire batch: 2,440 kilos of Soy Flakes), and, 22g of FO%. I wicked one size smaller for 12.5oz tumbler by mistake, but it turned up well as the scent is light. OMG! Awesome!!! For best performance cure time is 6 weeks using this formula.
This scent is amazing! It smells like the expensive Fraser Fir candles they sell at many boutiques. I love the smell of pine/christmas tree so this will be lovely. Haven't tested in my soy candles yet, but out of the bottle it is LOVELY.
In my opinion, this is the PERFECT Christmas scent. It smells just like a Christmas tree.
I couldn't wait for Fall to start creeping up, just so I can start blending my holiday scents. This one is sooo good and my customers have been anticipating the relaunch of my Christmas series. I blend this with another FO that is the perfect marriage for Christmas aromas. I highly recommend giving this a go!
This is wonderful! Perfection.
Love this scent. It is very PNW and outdoorsy. It has a bit of a sweetness to it from the lemonpeel- so don't expect straight fir tree. Great seller- smells like christmas and is a year round best seller for me.
We sell soy based bark wax melts and the Fraser Fir melts sold well for Christmas. Very smooth and classy pine smell, not overpowering like alot of commercial brands.
What can I say, I love Fraser anything and this fragrance oil does not disappoint! I knew this would be a fragrance we keep around all year; however, our customers ordered this by the 6's this holiday season. We sold so many that we sold out BEFORE the start of December. I have tried almost every version of Fraser FO on the market I settled on this one and I am very happy I did. You can not go wrong with this fragrance oil. It works in great in our parasoy blend. The FO does not discolor and we had great success without using candle dye. Although our customers we partial to the candle being dyed a dark forest green using 7 drops of hunter green and 7 drops of black liquid candle dye per lb of wax. We also increased our wick size by 2 with the higher than normal dye load and 10% FO oil. Our customer reviews say it is Christmas in a bottle!
I would say I’m exceptionally picky when it comes to scents. This one was a home run for me. Smells natural and complex! Perfect combination of woodsy and clean citrus aromas. Definitely an all-year-around scent as well. 5+ stars!
For my pine fragrances, like fir, I really love a crisp, sappy, realistic smell when it comes to my candles. For some reason with CS's Frasier Fir, I get a lot of apple?? Random fruity undertones that I wasn't expecting. Its a pretty scent but when I make candles I find I have to mix it with something earthier because the final product candle just smells like a lingering top note of pine and fruit with no depth. I like it though. Ehh...
Fraser Fir is by far one of the best selling Christmas scents! Anyone looking for a true fir smell has found it with FF. It is the first scent to sell out every year.
This has a fantastic pine fragrance, almost slightly sweet and very pleasing. I have tried many other versions and this one is my go to. Perfect for Christmas AND year around. One of my best sellers.
I have tried about 80 different scents, and this is one of my favorites. I do a 10% scent load, and it smells like I am in the middle of a pine forest. Very nice, indeed.
This fir scent was one of my favorites- so rich and deep. I mixed it with the Citron and Mandarin which was an amazing combination! I could see this as a scent that could stand alone and be amazing, or be mixed with others as a great base note. Can not recommend this enough! Buy it.
This is a very rich pine scent. I sell lots of frasier fir scented candles during the holiday season. It is one of my customer's favorites.Has great HT.
I am new to candle making. I have purchased probably 15 fragrances from CS and thus far this is my favorite. Great hot and cold throw in GB 464 plus the tops finish off smooth. I like it alot!
Love love love this FO! Great scent throw in 464!
Fraser fir has awesome hot and cold throw. I'm so happy with the smell - it's a true pine scent. I bought this scent to make a candle for a pine scent lover from Maine. I burned a test candle and I'm confident she'll love it!
I have searched high and low for that perfect scent...well here it is. Strong throw, hot and cold. It smells like an evergreen forest. Now that I have found it, I couldn't imagine not having it on hand. Perfect for warming oil, tarts, candles and soap. Everyone loves this scent.
As a native New Englander, I'm picky about Christmas trees. Spruce will do, but Balsam Fir is where it's at. This fragrance oil captures a true Christmas tree smell for me. Bright and slightly astringent, Fraser Fir smells fresh and clean, not soapy or cloying. This fragrance has been selling well even as early as October.
I have bought Blue Spruce, White Birch and Fraser Fir and Fraser Fir is definitely the most accurate depiction of a Christmas tree. I am so so pleased with it. It has more sweet tones behind it, where as White Birch has more perfume tones behind it (could be men's cologne). It burns very fragrant in my wax melts. Every customer that has smelled it, has bought it.
My customers cannot get enough of FRASER FIR candles! This and Sea Salt Orchid FLY off my shelves! A best-ever scent that never needs to change.
Just received Fraser Fir oil and it was the smell I was hoping for, the sweet smell of Christmas!
I used 95 grams of this stuff in 3 pounds of 444 wax. Cannot even smell it.
This is my favorite scent from Candlescience so far. Used it for candlemaking in a few different types of soy wax. Behaves well,smells strong but not too strong. Love it. Have reordered and will order continue to reorder.
This was one of the favorites of all the holiday scents. So fresh!
Customers loved FF during holidays and have asked for more!
Hands down my winter best seller. Couldn't keep it in stock, will have to order by the jug full next year! Definitely will use this again.
I made candles for the first time this year (2018) to give as Christmas gifts to family and friends. I researched obsessively before making candles, and I found candlescience as a company to be a good fit for what I wanted in candles (high quality products, good customer service, products good for the environment/humans, etc). This was one of my favorite scents I used. It was very true to its description, a great winter/holiday scent that has universal appeal. I used the 464 soy wax from candlescience at a 10% fragrance load and had good performance with both hot and cold throw. I let it cure in a covered box for 2 weeks before burning. I added fragrance at 180 and poured at 135. I didn't have any sweating in my candles from the fragrance. Would highly recommend!
I used this at 10% FO with 464 GB (and 444 GB). Great hot and cold throw. I sold out of this scent well before any of the others and I'm still getting requests for it. I did think it was a little too "lemony" with the pine but it grew on me, and fills a room nicely.
I used White Birch last year, which I think i thin a little bit better (it's more earthy than Frasir Fir).
Absolutely love this fragrance.
If you could pick one true Christmas smell, this would be it. Some pine or fir FOs have a pinesol type smell to it. Not the case here. This is the perfect Fraser Fir fragrance. In fact, I keep it in my lineup year round and it’s alwas the first to sell out. I have to make 4x more of these than any other candle fragrance.
I am VERY picky about Christmas tree scents. This Fraser fir scent is incredible though! I mixed it with a little cranberry woods (also from CS) and it smells incredible. For many years I only bought my candles from that store that rhymes with "Wankee Candle" because their scents are not fake smelling. Now, I can say I've found my true Christmas tree scent and it's not from another company. It's from mine!
I purchased this scent for customers and thought it was only going to be my customers. I loveeeeeeeeeeeeeeee this scent. Candle Science this is a great scent; great hot and cold throw. No one will be disappointed with this scent.
I Absolutely love this fragrance! Just made 25 tealights yesterday, and I have already burned 6 of them. Although my candle line is more Spa related fragrances, I will definitely be making Fraser Fir for the holidays. I hope you keep a good amount in stock for the holidays Candle Science. Thanks so much!
This sold out during a two day festival I recently went to. Very good smell. My friends have bought this as well. One said it put bath and body works to shame! I still like their marshmallow pumpkin though.
My top selling candle year round! Customers love it and it cures well.
This is a fresh clean smell, I love it.
This is on point what a freshly cut Christmas tree smells like. It has a nice light smell and gives off the most realistic Christmas tree scent I can find so far.
My favorite scent so far..
I love this "Christmas Tree" Scent! Anyone who loves this type of scent will enjoy this one! Use in 464 soy wax
This was my favorite christmas fragrance. It was nice and strong hand good hot throw. Perfect. Can't wait to order it again.
I really really love this FO. It is suuuuch a great pine scent with a little bit of sweetness. Cold throw tends to be a bit better than hot throw but I may try using more next time. Typically only use 1oz/lb.
What a nice scent!! I use 464 12%. everyone loves it! Cold and hot throw are strong. a top seller of mine
This was my favorite christmas fragrance! Love it.
I am new to candle making so this was my first FO purchase from CS. I absolutely love it! I use C-3 soy wax for my candles and used 8 oz. tins. The CT and HT are both very impressive! Everyone who received a candle raved about how they loved that they could smell the essence of the candle even before burning. Will absolutely be purchasing next year for more of my holiday candles!
Smells just like a fresh cut Christmas tree. Strong fragrance hot or cold. I used at 10% with IG 6006 para soy blend wax. I made several this fall and they sold very well
This scent is incredible! Very nice cold / hot throw in soy wax.
I will reorder Fraser Fir again!
My customers love this scent and keep coming back for more.
This scent is so fresh and smells expensive... Perfect for the holidays but I don't think I'll be giving it up come January! I accidentally mixed a bit of this with the Fruit Slices scent (didn't clean out my vessel after making Fruit Slices Candles) and it adds a lovely depth with just a touch of sweetness--not too overwhelming.
This is my undisputed top seller. A very true to life evergreen fragrance with great hot and cold throws. A must-have for a holiday line!
I usually don't write reviews. It's silly because we all read them....so add your two cents....it's extremely helpful to others... I will say in fall and winter this has been my #1 seller!!!!! I want to burn it all year long. So fresh and clean and realistic. Nothing artificial here!! This is one of my top two faves from Candle Science....BEAUTIFUL!!!
This scent is the best fir tree scent out there. I use it in 464 soy container candles and it always sells out quickly at the shows.
LOVE this one! Used in 464 soy wax 1oz per 1lb. Very Strong cold and cold throw. PERFECT Frazier Fir scent. Had a customer request this one, as they previously had a similar scent and it was discontinued in their local store. Can NOT wait for them to try this! I think it will be a hit!!
Perfect. Used in 464. 1oz/1lb. Crazy cold and hot throw. Can’t mess this one up. Definitely the perfect “pine tree” scent. Will repurchase for sure. Highly recommend it.
This accelerated quite considerably while soaping but smelt divine. Probably best used in single color simple design Cold Process or those who need a thick trace for a quick Hot Process cook. Scent is holding strong, perfect for the holidays.
New for Christmas 2016. Major hit. Smells just like the Fraser/Cannan type tree. If you really know what different Fir Trees smell like, you will be able to pick out some Balsam in it too. The best Christmas tree sent anywhere in my opinion. I would give it six stars but five is as high as it goes.
Love the fragrance! It's a pretty close dupe to Thymes Frasier Fir. I use 464. Wonderful wonderful throw and pretty accurate in smelling as a Frasier tree. Unlike someone who posted a review who said it was like Mistletoe..... it is not at all similar to Mistletoe what so ever. They are 2 different fragrances. I also use their Blue Spruce which is a super thrower and love.
Candle Science has always put out "quality" fragrances and I always recommend them. Their pricing on their oils are wonderful. The shipping has gone up and it is a killer. Don't know why they can't offer better pricing on shipping when other companies further away have cheaper shipping....but oh well, it is what it is I guess. But I'm willing to spend the extra on the shipping because of the fine quality fragrances Candle Science has. I just try and add more to my order to make up the difference. Well done Candle Science! Now I have to go and get Snickerdoodle like so many love which is a new scent.
Produces a very nice scent using your formula of 1oz/1lb in Soy 464.
My biggest complaint CS...Your shipping prices. I have found a competitor that ships for way less. Their products are a few cents cheaper too. But your products being a few cents higher isn't a deal breaker for me, it's the shipping cost you guys charge. 5 stars for product only!
Customers loved this smell. A gorgeous and smooth high end fragrance - perfect for the holidays.
I also used this in 4630 and forest green dye. It's Christmas, again, everyone loves it. I will be selling next year. Blue Spruce and this are my favorites. I will be burning both all year!
Have looked for two years for this scent,was given a THYMES Frasier Fir Candle a few years ago and I really think this new fragrance is dead on .... I use it in a para/soy mix and was very pleased with the results!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! New Christmas favorite.
This Scent became a favorite of my own and customers. When used in soy had the perfect hot and cold throw when used at the 1 oz./lb. ratio and personally found it to be a much better scent that the blue spruce if going for a simple pine/fir smell.
Really really like this one. It's got a pretty true to life evergreen smell but with a nice healthy citrus kick too; definitely smells like christmas! My last batch of holiday candles used Blue Spruce and while that is also a great scent, I felt like it was missing a little extra citrus kick that this one delivers.
I love this FO however when put side by side to Mistletoe (which is my favorite Xmas scent) it is VERY VERY similar. So close that I can not tell them apart. Both great scents though
This one smells like a fresh pine forest, like Christmas, like exactly what it promises, just beautiful, get it!!
I was looking for something that just smelled like a fresh Christmas tree farm and tried several others including Blue Spruce-which just didn't cut it, and Pine Cones-which smelled good but was not simple pine tree scent. The minute this was released I put in an order and am SO pleased. I used it at 10% in 464 and it is divine. The entire house smelled like Christmas while making the candles, and the cold and hot throw are excellent! Am using this as a year round scent although it would obviously work well for just the holidays.
Best true to life Christmas tree scent I've come across so far! A winner, keep this one around please!!!
I LOVE this scent! I just did an event recently and customers fell in love with this scent.
It truly brought their senses right to the holiday season! This will definitely be a popular
scent for my own to enjoy and my customers!
This is amazing. It was loved by all who smelled it. Blue Spuce is a great one also but this is even better. I was delighted to discover this new scent. People who don't care for evergreen smells even liked this one.
It's almost identical to the scent that the high end boutiques are carrying & my customers can't get enough of this one.
Yes I like this and smells just like what it a Fraser Fir smells like.
A nice holiday scent!
Wow wow wow!!! Just received a sample of this today with my order - holy happy holidays Batman!!! I have / or have had a lot of different "Christmas tree" or piney-type fragrances over the years, some of which are very nice and I consistently use, but this is absolutely by far the best true Christmas tree scent I've come across - I just ordered a big bottle so as to not take a chance of it being sold out. No procrastinating today! Yikes - tarts, candles, m&p, CP - and HP because I'm going to need instant gratification with this one. Awesomeness. :^) Thank you Candle Science!
I ordered a wide variety, to test out which scents I liked more, however, when I received my orders of the 4oz oils, some had more oils than others, and there was no consistent amount poured into the bottles. Other than that, the product works and smells great!
Wow! I cannot say enough about how wonderful this scent is. The best "Frasier Fir" I have found. Thank you, CS!
Excellent version! I have been waiting many years to find a true "Christmas tree" scent. I believe this is the one!
