Was so excited for this scent I ended up buying 4 oz and two 1oz but when I smelt it I picked up on a very strong berry scent with a side of gingerbread I’ll definitely have to rename this but I’m completely disappointed. I will never get this scent from here again

I LOVE CS fragrance oils! This one has a strong curry fragrance to it. I am going to give Iced Gingerbread a try... Love your products!

The cold throw is amazing, the hot throw is awful- gives off a burning smell.

Smells like Curry.

Smells like Curry with a strong chemical smell.

Not enough sugar, too much chemical

This is one of the few scents that fell short for me out of the 25 scents that I have made into candles and melts so far.

I do smell the gingerbread, but it is a chemical scent that comes through even stronger.

I actually dumped out 6 clamshells worth back into the pots after they set, knowing that I wouldn’t want to ever use them as a pure gingerbread. I am going to test half the batch mixed with Crème Brûlée to get the sugar smell I feel is missing. The other half I mixed with Toasted Pumpkin Spice to see if the buttery richness in that scent can overtake the chemical smell. Cold throws on both seem much better, but I haven’t yet tested hot throw.

CT was great Ht wasn't so good in my coconut blend.

Gingerbread? More like “Maple Syrup”

None of the high or middle notes present in my bottle. Smells like pure sugar, and maple, like pancake syrup. Whoever is naming these fragrances needs a retrain. This should be called “Syrup!”. People, if you’re reviewing a product, be honest. So sad that I followed y’alls comments.

Perfect Holiday Scent

Smells just like a gingerbread cookie. Perfect for holiday candles and wax melts.

Chemical smell

After reading all the reviews, we had high hopes for this scent. Instead it had a very strong chemical smell to us and gave me a headache. Will look for another winter/Christmas scent.

I loved it, although I can see how it smells like curry, especially on cold. But burning, it doesn’t smell like curry at all to me. I recommend!
