Details

A true-to-life blend of ripe, tangy grapefruit and mangosteen- an exotic fruit that is citrusy and sweet with a hint of peach.

Out of the bottle the grapefruit dominates with its sharp and punchy citrus notes. Once in wax, the fragrance mellows just a bit, with the warmer and sweeter mangosteen coming through. The fragrance reaches balance while burning, when both fruits meld into a strong fragrance that has a citrus punch, a hint of peach, and a naturally derived sweetness.

This fragrance is infused with natural essential oils, including orange.

Note Profile:
Top: Pomelo, Grapefruit, Sugar
Middle: Peach, Apple, Pineapple
Base: Bright Musk, Red Currant

Soy candle maker's note: For years, we've tested dozens of grapefruit fragrances and we haven't been impressed. We put lots of research and development into figuring out why the chemistry just doesn't work. This fragrance is the result of all that work. While it is a 2/3 in soy (just leaves us room to keep trying), it is the best we've ever seen, and we think you'll agree.

A New Favorite!

Can't wait to take this to our fall sale, love, love love this scent! Great performer in 464, very little cure time, lasts a really long time in the wax melter. As a candle, burns great, fills the whole room! Used wick CSN 12 in 464, added 6% at 175 degrees, and then another 5% at 155 degrees and stirred for a full 3 minutes. Cooled till almost slushy before pouring. Cured 3 days and WOW! I give these exact instructions for the reviewers that didn't get results they were hoping for. Ordering more today. Love Candle Science quality and was very impressed that even in the face of hurricane Florence I got my order super fast! Thanks, Candle Science.

I love it!

Smells like a summer cocktail, all my ladies love this scent, it's a must have on my fragrance list this summer.

Cold throw much stronger then hot throw

I LOVE the smell of this in the bottle, loved it once it was poured and cured, but cannot smell it when it is lit. So disappointing! I got this in the soy candle starter kit so it was 1 lb x 1 oz ratio with soy wax & fragrance. It would work great for my mother!! (she's afraid of fire - even a small candle flame...lol) But yes I would have bought the biggest bottle you can get IF the hot throw was just as wonderful as the cold throw.

Great Grapefruit

Love this grapefruit scent! It's not too in your face but the citrus really comes through. One of my best performing candles and really popular with my customers.

Got this during the 99 cents sample sale and Absolutely love it, will buy in bigger size

Best Seller!

Every Spring at my big sale this is hands down the best seller - I mean dozens of this one. This is a beautiful fragrance customers just can’t put it down and stand there sniffing for quite a while and then purchase. Like a sugared grapefruit perfect spring/summer scent. I WISH it was also for bath and body - please CS can you wave your magic wand and help I could really expand the line of products with this fragrance. Love it and highly recommend.

Pleasantly surprised

You can read reviews but it’s never a sure thing until you try it for yourself. I’ve got to say, it’s unique and so familiar at the same time. Introduced it to my customers and it was well received. Throw was great. I’m always a bit skeptical of anything grapefruit even though I love the scent but it definitely won me over.

Hmmmm...

I don't like what am about to write but I have to help someone out. This FO is good only in the bottle. It smells amazing!! Put it in candle (soy) where did the scent go??? Followed instructions, even cured for a month no scent. So disappointed why all the stars ???. So I double checked the top,middle,base note again, crap all weak.

Please, somebody give me the how to's to also get the 5stars level, I love citrus smells please/ what is the secret.

The best The best

As soon as I mixed this with my soy blend 444 omg this fragrance is to die for! My whole house smelled of this amazing fragrance! You guys are the best!!

Like, like, like, 👍

Meh

This scent is just whatever for me. I guess it depends on personal preferences. It's definitely strong in candles but there're other scents I like more than this one. #notastunner

My new favorite!

I was truly so impressed with this scent, it is hands down my new personal favorite! I use NatureWax C-3 and I get an excellent cold and hot throw. This is one scent that I will always keep my shelf filled with for sure. Can't wait to see how it sells at my first fair next month! :)

Excellent Diffuser Performance

Fruity and moderately-sweet, this is the best performing fragrance oil I have tried in the CS Diffuser Base, which is a flame-free option for bringing fragrance to my children's rooms. Four stars because I personally don't detect much grapefruit, but it is still an excellent fragrance.

Lovely!

This is a delicious scent. Made in GB 464 1 ounce/1 pound and hot and cold throws are awesome. To me this isn't an exact dupe for Anthropolpgie's Volcano but is similar and at the very least pairs nicely with it. I actually prefer it over Volcano!

Wonderful when lit!

Grapefruit hits you right oob and then you sweet tropical scent of the mangosteen. I used it in GB464 at 10% and with a 5 day cure time in a jelly jar it had decent scent throw. I really like this one!

One of my Favorites!

This scent smells amazing, especially when lit. My customers love this one, I am always having to make more. This one is starting to go head to head with the scent "Jamaican me crazy." Both wonderful scents. Fabulous job candle science!

Sample love

This fragrance was in my kit and my first time using it, it smells amazing!!! A cross between strawberries and grapes. I had to reorder.

Juicy

I call this juicy for obvious reasons, this scent is so yum. I am using 464 + 1.5 oz. Try it! www.maxleeba.com.

This scent is AMAZING!! I used it in GB464, it has an awesome scent throw!! Love it!! I will be buying more and adding to my permanent line of scents!!

Long-time favorite!

Super yummy and juicy scent!

Love this scent!

I've been making candles with this scent for awhile now, and I love it! You do need to add at least 1.5oz-2oz per pound to get a great throw but when you do it's awesome!!

I loved the scent of this candle. I am new to candle making and I was wondering what I was doing wrong because when I was preparing the candle the cold throw was amazing, my home smelled lovely. But the hot throw was minimal, only if the candle was directly in my vicinity. I let the candle cure for a few days thinking this might help the situation but still minimal result. Now that I have read other reviews, I see that others have had the same problem. The scent is fabulous. Hope there is a fix for this in the future.

Love!

One of my best sellers and one of my personal favorites, smells more like grapefruit- but I absolutely love it and so do my customers!

great scent

I have used this scent in 444, 464 and eco cb advanced waxes. Every time it comes out great. I follow the wick guide. In addition, this is one of my top sellers and one of my personal favorites also.

Not impressed

Im reading all these positive reviews and I am wondering why this could not be me. I really wanted to like this FO but the hot throw sucks to me. I let the candle cure for a full week and added the 1oz to the 1lb of wax and still did not end up with a positive result.

Candles smell great, but no hot throw

My fiance and I absolutely LOVE this scent and the candles smell amazing not lit, but there is almost no hot throw at all! I used the recommended 1oz per pound of soy wax, but I can only smell the hot throw if the candle is directly next to me. I would have given this two stars because of the lack of smell when lit, but I love it so much and want to try it again with the maximum (2oz) of oil. Hopefully that will make a difference. I'm also hoping that if I let the candles sit for an additional 2-3 days the fragrance will be a bit stronger.

Very Unique

This fragrance is one of my new faves! Im not a huge grapefruit fan but this one is excellent!

Love this Scent...BUT

This is one of my favorite candle scents. I just wish I could use it in my body scrubs and butters!!!

Scent not very strong

I was a little disappointed with the hot throw on this one, I followed instruction and used 1oz per pound of GW 464 Soy although it did smell good cold.

Love this Scent

I use this scent in 444 and it works great! I actually had a customer call me last night to tell me that her family would like to order this scent because they smelled it and love it, and have never smelled a scent as unique and lovely as this one. It's a great seller.

Too Sweet

I am a HUGE fan of anything grapefruit scented, but understand that pure grapefruit is quite peppery and not what is expected of a "grapefruit scented" candle, diffuser, etc. Unfortunately, though, this scent is a bit too much mangosteen and not enough grapefruit. I can detect bit of citrus, but I was looking for something much more grapefruit centric. I'm not a huge fan of overly sweet scents (hence my love of citrus) and this is unfortunately incredibly sweet.

The scent, however, is quite strong and carries incredibly well. The quality of product is great!

Great cold and hot throw works great with GB464. Customer Love it!

Huge Hit!

This scent was by far the favorite with my friends and family! I only had a few 8oz tins of this scent as I was trying it out for the first time and people actually fought over them! I will be making this scent a staple in my shop. I found that the recommended 1oz of oil to 1lb of soy wax provided a perfectly light scent.

Best Citrus Scent

This is absolutely one of my favorite citrus scents. It's sweet, tart and fresh. Reminds me of a fresh squeezed cocktail. Highly recommend this if you need a citrus scent. I'm in love.

LOVE this scent

I love this scent, it is strong and great cold throw as well as hot. I know it only gives 2 leaves in soy, but I think its perfect.

I read the review that said it smelled like the Anthropologie Volcano candle and I was sold. It does smell surprisingly like that. Really, really great smell for Spring and Summer.

great scent- best seller

Made 6 candles and sold 6 candle in one fell swoop. Great scent! will make 12 candles this time! lol

Hits a citrus pinnacle!

I love citrus scents, and this one is spot on. Clean, crisp and not cloyingly sweet. It makes your mouth water. I had a half dozen scented candles on the table, and my friends rated this one of their top two. Citron Mandarin is another good one to try. Excellent cold and hot throw in a soy blend.

Love. Love. Love.

This has a lovely hot and cold scent throw. If you have ever smelled the Volcano candles that are popular at Anthropologie, this is VERY close to that scent. This is definitely a year-round favorite.

Smells aaaamazing

This is a wonderfully fresh, fruity, and strong fragrance. If I have several candles out for sale this one always steals the show. Customers love it and even though its a very strong scent it doesn't give me a headache to pour. Amazing cold throw as well. GB 464 at 1oz/lb.

Simply Amazing!

Such an awesome summer fragrance. Its a HUGE hit amongst my customers! Amazing hot and cold throw. 1.5 oz in soy wax.

The absolute BEST!

This scent is simply amazing and it's so strong. I can smell it on a different floor of the house! One of those FO's you just can't go wrong it. Buying a bigger bottle next time for sure.

Love this scent!

We have a customer that loves this scent so I made the purchase in a 1oz bottle. I will now be coming back soon for a larger bottle. This scent is spot on! Perfectly heavenly! It's not over powering nor too strong. Has a very beautiful scent when both cold or hot! The description is spot on!

DESERVES 3 LEAFS!

I have never personally ordered this FO but a friend of mine has and made me an 8 ounce mason jar candle using GB 444 and the scent was very pleasing and strong. I honestly cant believe this only has 2 leafs. This awesome citrus delight will not disappoint!

Unusually good scent!

I love grapefruit scents but unfortunately they fall short in Soy wax. Usually I get excellent cold throw and no hot throw at all, until now. I made this for a customer in gb464 and also added a tangerine scent with it and bingo bango! I made the most beautiful scent! She loved it and everyone else that smelled it bought a candle from me! I sold out the whole batch in two hours that's six candles! I will be making this again! Thanks!

Surprised this isn't 3 leafs!

Very strong hot and cold throw! I'm surprised this isn't a 3 leaf rating. Very pleasant smell and very unique. Definitely one of the best grapefruit and citrus scents I've tried. This has been a very popular scent. I used .9oz of fragrance oil for 10.1 oz of Soy464 wax in a container.

Question. Please help!

I am using GB 464 soy wax, but can't seem to get a hot throw. For those that did, how many oz. of FO per lb. of wax did you pour? And at what temps? THANK YOU!

Love, love, love, love, did I say love

This is my new favorite summer/spring scent. Not only does it rock my world, but everyone of my customers requested this scent.

Outstanding!

This fragrance is simply amazing. Sweet, yet tart. It is the perfect citrus blend. I used in Soy 464 and the scent was incredible cold and hot. I will be reordering.

Perfection

I use this scent at 1 1/2 ounce per pound in IGI 4627. Hot and cold throw is very good. It is a toss up between this scent and Oakmoss and Amber as my favorite. I have yet to find anyone that did not like this scent. Regardless of the season this one is a favorite.

Sweet citrus

Loved this fragrance. It is exactly what I had hoped for. very fruity.

My favorite

This smells like a mixed dring without the alcohol. Equal parts grapefruit and mangosteen. Strong and sinfully good.

Pure citrus bliss!

Adore this fragrance. Am ordering more today ... wonderful blend!

Deserves 3 leaves!

Used in 464 wax in 8 oz. jelly jars (3 fl. oz. of fragrance to 32 oz. of wax) - AMAZING throw and delicious citrus/sweet scent. A truly mood-lifting fragrance!

Citrusy!

It is very overpowering in the bottle, just like the description says. But in wax, it mellows alot, and has the sweeter scent. Delicious scent! Very strong!

Lov this one

This may only have a 2 leaf rating, in your soy, but in my GB 415..it has a 5 leaf rating..It not only has a great HT, which I can smell all over my house..But it smells so good, good enough, be careful or you will want to pick it up and drink it..

Wonderful

I received this as a sample. I had to reorder in a bigger size. I used it as a burning oil and looking forward to using it in my soy wax. It smells wonderful out the bottle and even better as a burning oil.

Gotta have it type scent!!!

This is DEAD ON to what CandleScience says.The longer you let it cure,the more the two scents stand out.One of my favorites!

Absolutely delectable scent!

Loved the scent in the bottle - loved it even MORE in a candle. Excellent throw! Sold out immediately at Saturday Market - have had many more orders already just on this scent alone! EVERY single person who sniffed the candles LOVED it!!

Beautiful scent

Love the scent....Better than I expected.

tart

all I can say is grab the napkin, this one makes your mouth water.
