Fraser Fir trees are one of the most popular Christmas tree varieties, and the CandleScience home state of North Carolina, produces more than 50 million of these iconic trees a year. Our true-to-life Fraser Fir fragrance oil begins with top notes of cypress and zesty lemon peel that fold into woodsy mid notes of evergreen and cedar. The rich base of fir, amber, and moss evokes fond memories of decorating a freshly-cut Christmas tree. Fraser Fir is perfect for setting a festive holiday mood or creating a cozy ambience for a quiet winter evening by the fire.

This fragrance is infused with natural essential oils, including fir balsam.

Blends well with: Black Coral and Moss, Fireside, Frankincense and Myrrh, Frosted Juniper, Cranberry Apple Marmalade

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.

The smell of Christmas!

THIS is Christmas!!

When I first burned this, my wife said "It smells like Christmas threw up in here". That's a very high compliment too, lol. We both love this scent, it has a strong sent, but not overpowering. Been amazing in both candles and melts. I would burn this year round.

I will never buy another Fraser fir!

I’ve ordered from several suppliers, but this is the best and most authentic! The CT and HT in coconut / soy is fantastic! Forget the others, CS has cornered the market with this Fraser Fir!

I have purchased more expensive Fraser Firs from……I don’t know, I’ve lost count! This Fraser fir is by FAR the most authentic I’ve found in my 3 year quest for the perfect balance of notes. I feel like I’m standing in the middle of a Christmas tree lot, looking for that perfect tree! Bravo and Brava Candle Science!!!

The outdoors

In search of true pine scent I ordered this Fraser Fir, and while it is an outdoor-sey scent, it doesn't say Pine to me, nor others that sampled this. It's sweeter than I would expect, and while it's definitely a pleasant scent, it's not pine or at least not a strong pine-family scent. I'm thinking I'll blend with an herbal blend.

Amazing scent but no HT

I love love love this scent, it's the perfect Christmas tree scent. I used in on GW464, 6% as recommended, and it has an amazing CT but no HT at all. I will be trying 10% once again to see if it changes anything but looking at the reviews, I am starting to think it will not be successful. I will be so sad if it doesn't work since I love this scent so much and many of my clients who have smelled the scent test have loved it too. I am giving 3 stars because it smells so good but -2 because no HT

The BEST "Tree Fragrance" EVER....

I just started using the fragrance wax melts and they provided a great way to add a bit-o-fragrance to my home. I had a 16 oz bottle of the Frasier Fir from some years ago and I said, Self, use this great fragrance to "recharge" my wax melts and save from buying the more expensive store bought melts. I just finished my recharging with using ONE dropper full of the FF fragrance, (in ~ .5 oz wax - one cube), and the effect was immediate. Since the previous wax was already melted, the FF oil blended right in and the next thing I noticed was a "forest of trees" in my home :-)... I figure I will save tons of money recharging my wax melts using this method and the fragrance is UFB GREAT....

Up North

I designed a candle scent for my mom called Up North. This is the main ingredient and she will love it. Testing it with 415 blend wax and so far so good! Want to try higher FO next batch.
