Just love it

I got this scent last year when candle science had there sale on sample sizes. When i went to look at reviews on the scent to see what the throw in soap was like i was dissappointed to see not alot of poeple enjoyed the scent saying it was to spicy and not enough of the cookie!. BUUUT.. at a 2% in MP soap this scent smells amazing. I have to put a dont eat the soap label onto my soaps now cause they will smell like gingerbread :)

Gingerbread fragrance oil

This scent was suggested by CS as great in 464. I loved it until I lit it. It just smells like something is burning. I use 3" diameter masons. CD18 was wick to use per guide and 1.5 oz FO per pound per pound of wax. Not a fan

AMAZING cold and hot throw in 464 with 10% fragrance load. Love, love this one!

Seasonal Scents

Could have a little stronger hot throw but overall I love this one and so do customers.

Ok, but...

It is ok, but I wish it had some buttery notes. Just smells like spice to me without the cookie.

Seasonal Smash

Total winner, sold out extremely fast. Don't be fooled by the slightly off-putting 'from-the-bottle' smell - smells like a chemical alcohol - once you make the candles it will smell absolutely amazing. I use 11% in GB464 and it smells fantastic.

I am new to candle making and prefer a very strong scent, which I am learning is harder to achieve with soy wax than with paraffin. That said, I'll never use another paraffin wax candle and LOVE the soy wax. The Gingerbread cold and hot throw is amazing with the soy wax I'm using. The fragrance is reasonably strong. It seems that the soy candles have to burn longer to get the full impact of the hot throw, but this scent is better than any other I've tried so far. Love, love, love and it will definitely order more.

Only CandleScience scent I don't like

I tried this a few years ago, and I guess some people love this scent, but this has been the only one I don't like from CandleScience. I'm a little afraid to try the other fragrance oils which are similar.

Very Offputting Smell

I ordered a large bottle of Gingerbread for the first time because I figured it would be a hit in my candles. However, opening the bottle I was hit with an overpowering alcoholic smell, sort of like vodka mixed with expo markers. I hoped it would smell better set in a candle, but I was wrong. It was still a disgusting scent that I could never sell or even give to anyone else. Luckily, candlescience products are priced very well, so I didn't lose out too much on this purchase, but it was still very disappointing.
