Grapefruit and Mangosteen Fragrance Oil
Choose a Variant

A true-to-life blend of ripe, tangy grapefruit and mangosteen- an exotic fruit that is citrusy and sweet with a hint of peach. This fragrance has a bright, punchy character out of the bottle that mellows just a bit in wax, with a slight creaminess that keeps it balanced. The fragrance reaches equilibrium while burning, with both fruits meld into a strong, bright fragrance with a hint of peach and a naturally derived sweetness.

Cold process soap makers will be happy to see that, unlike its predecessor, the revised version of Grapefruit and Mangosteen behaves well in cold process recipes. 

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

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.

Blends well with: Mimosa and Mandarin, Very Vanilla, Blue Spruce

Alternative branding ideas: Pink Grapefruit, Grapefruit Vanilla, Seaside Citrus

Suggested colors: Orange, Yellow

Cold Process Soap Performance

Light Tan

Lye Water Temperature 107ºF (41.7°C)
Oil Temperature 109ºF (42.8°C)

We experienced slight acceleration and slight separation. Initially, only part of the oils seemed to emulsify. However, once it seemed the entire batch emulsified, we still saw separation of oils and water when we stopped blending. The batch fully emulsified at a medium trace. The batter was fluid at this point, but it started to stiffen as we poured the soap into the mold. After 24 hours, we observed the soap had almost reached a full gel and the scent was strong. After the cut, we noticed several glycerine rivers and the soap was weepy. After 30 days the soap had discolored to a light tan and the scent remained strong.
This fragrance may be easier to work with if added at a very light trace and hand stirred in just before pouring into the mold. A simple layer design that requires a thick trace would be ideal.

Out of all the scents I have tried this is my favorite. The scent lasts forever and has a very light not overwhelming smell! I am OBSESSED! I use this in my soy 464 wax and it blends so nicely!

I use 464 and was on the fence because I read this FO isn’t known to shine with soy. I gave it a shot and it is one of my top sellers with repeat customers! Along with myself!
We love this scent here in middle Ga. Thank you CS!

Love it!!

I use in 464 at 6% cure 2 weeks. Wonderful scent, great hot throw. It’s a yummy sweet bright citrus but not sickly candy sweet. Totally recommend. I would love to try in soap and other products soon.

I am obssesed

So, I went to a Candle Making activity in my country where I would create my first candle and I actually chose this scent because I don't think I have EVER smelled something like this. This is my new favorite candle scent, I used 10% FO load on Soy Wax and even by just opening the container I am slapped by the fragrance. When you light it? It fills the room in a great way. Will definitely keep using if I continue to do candles

Odd HT in 464

Smells incredible out of the bottle! Tested the fragrance with 464 and a wooden wick, and the candle burns great. But the hot throw is very different for me than the CT (cold throw smells like the oil out of the bottle!) and not in a pleasant way. It’s almost chemical-like. Perhaps others’ experiences will be different! It’s sadly a no from me, for my candles.

Got a sample of this and love it!!!!!! Smells great right out of the bottle and the best ct and ht I’ve ever experienced!! You can’t go wrong. I hope cs keeps a big stock of this because it’s all the things I want in a fresh, clean scent!
