We did not experience any acceleration or separation. Once an emulsion developed, we saw the mixture shift to a dark brown shade. After 24 hours, the soap was too soft to remove from the mold, so we allowed it to remain in the mold an additional 3 days. Once the soap was out of the mold and cut we observed that there was only a small golf ball size gel spot in the center of the loaf. The bars had discolored to a tan shade. The scent was mild and not quite the robust coffee odor we had expected. After 30 days the soap bars had a unique discoloration pattern, the gelled area was brown, the majority of the bar was tan, while portions around the edges were light brown. The scent was mild but definitely smelled like fresh coffee beans.

Owner, Salty Candle Company

This scent is my absolute favorite. I use Soy 464 wax with 10% fragrance and it smells just like a fresh brewed pot of coffee. I sell out of this candle everytime! Some of my customers buy 2 because the cold throw is outstanding and they keep it on their desk at work. You can smell this candle anywhere in the room. Do not go by what it smells like in the really have to make the candle! I can't keep this one in stock.

Would not recommend!

I received very poor feedback on this scent! personally I think its because it smells like skunk spray!! Sorry sad I really wanted a good coffee scent!

Happy Customers

To me, this scent is really strong (hot and cold throw). This scent is not for me, but my customers love it. They buy 2 and 3 candles of this scent at a time. So I would say Candle Science hit their mark with the Fresh Coffee.

This coffee fragrance is heavenly mixed with with a nutty fragrance oil, smells like delicious coffee candy. Everyone who smells these candles closes their eyes and smiles and LOVES it. It's one of my very favorites.

Needed a coffee fragrance to try for candles and wax melts, and was ordering other frags from here so thought 'why not?'
Really does smell like fresh brewed coffee. Strong out of the bottle...and super strong when in the product. In fact, that's my only negative - I used it at 1.3oz to a pound of 464 in my first set of candles. lowered it to 1.1 in my second set and settled on 1.0 in my third. Perfect. Amazing hot throw in both candles and melts.


I have always wanted to try the coffee scent but haven’t because it wasn’t phthalate-free until now. I just went to read the previous reviews on the old version and some are 5 stars and some are 1 star. My first experience with this FO and I’m having to give it 1 star. It smelled great out of the bottle but when I poured it, my wax actually started smoking a bit and then it smelled like straight up burnt coffee and skunk. I am writing this review so that maybe Candlescience can explain if there’s a reason this FO smells burnt— could I have burnt it? Is it super sensitive to its flashpoint? I really feel like I may have burned it somehow but I’ve never experienced this with any other fragrance and I love CS fragrances. I’m at a loss :(
