Fresh Coffee Fragrance Oil
Choose a Variant

Product Update: October 7, 2022

Fresh Coffee's out-of-bottle odor is extremely pungent. It should only be evaluated in a candle or personal care base.

Bring the warmth of fresh brewed coffee to your handmade creations with this comforting, familiar fragrance oil. Top notes of just-ground coffee beans start this fragrance oil off strong, while a touch of sugar and cream add the perfect amount of sweetness. Fresh Brewed Coffee candles and wax melts transform any space into your favorite neighborhood cafe. 

Looking for an artisanal coffee scent with creamier notes? We recommend trying Coffee Shop.

Blends well with: Cinnamon and Vanilla, Cinnamon Chai

Alternative branding ideas: Coffee House, Death Before Decaf, Cup o' Joe

Suggested color: Brown

Coffee is brewing

I love the smell of coffee but I cant stand the taste. This definitely smells like you've walked into a coffee shop.

Gotta mix with something else

I love the old fresh coffee! Yes, this new scent is different than previous version, so i had to stop buying it from CS! I looked for and tried all different types of coffee scented oils, and i couldn’t find the one that smells like old CS fresh coffee. Anyway, i blended the new fresh coffee with something else, and it smells like the old version!!!! 🥳 If you don’t like the new scent, you gotta experiment a little!

the real deal

this is by far the strongest scent in my collection. it smells like such a deep fresh coffee as if your standing inside the coffee pot. I have melts at a flea market and you can literally smell the coffee as you round the corner to my isle. It almost over powers all my other scents since that's about all you smell nearby. I think I will lower my fragrance load next time.. I always use 9%. the smell lingered in my sinus for a lt least 24 hours after making a batch. entire house including garage was filled with coffee scent when testing..

Big hit!

Everyone loves this scent! It's strong but pleasant. I don't even have to light the candles, just open them up and the whole place smells like starbucks lol. This is a keeper!

Yes, this is a strong scent OOB. It smells exactly like fresh, black coffee. I happen to love the smell of coffee right out of the bag and this is it! A customer is having me do her daughters wedding candle favors and this is the only scent her daughter wants. Keep this scent around. Thanks candle science!!

Coffee Booster

Fresh Coffee is *strong*. Due to this, I don't use it on its own, but typically as part of a blend with other coffee oils that are often too sweet and need an extra boost of rich coffee. Usually only 10% of any given blend is Fresh Coffee, and it's better for it - the overall blend is more coffee forward & less sweet, and the burnt roasted coffee bean undertone of Fresh Coffee is mellowed. To all the low ratings - sometimes some experimentation is required to bring out the best in each fragrance. All in all, I would call this one a staple in my lineup.

I detect a small amount of coffee smell, but to me both the cold and hot throw smell a little like a skunk.

Smells like coffee!

We absolutely love this fragrance! We are huge coffee drinkers and this coffee smells like a fresh cup of black coffee! The cold and hot throw smells very good and strong! So far its one of our customer favorites!

Great in 464 Soy

As we know sometimes soy can be hard to get a super strong throw. This coffee is great though! Please don't get rid of this fragrance for those of us that use soy and love it for our candles and wax melts. A little secret I use is a little sweet creme b. mixed with this as well. It's great. I drink and brew coffee everyday and I can be critical but not with this fragrance mixed with Soy wax.

OOB, I get coffee bean and something else. Tried in a sniffle blend and it smells great. Definitely needs mixing and diluting. If you're looking for a sweet and creamy coffee, ignore the notes. It is strong and bitter.
