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

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.

I’m always hesitant to get anything grapefruit but this one shocked me… I actually love it

Perfect Volcano Dupe!

I've tried many different fragrances from CS and this one has become my #1 favorite! A friend of mine is obsessed with Anthropologie's Volcano-Capri Blue candle and he tasked me with finding a dupe for it. I wasn't sure I could do it, but figured I'd give it a shot. And y'all, I FOUND IT! My friend said he actually prefers this scent, and I gotta say, so do I! I've been using it with 464 wax and have had zero issues.

I also started using it in my electric tabletop diffuser/humidifier. With only 4-5 drops of oil per cup of water, my entire living room smells amazing for hours. I've been doing this almost daily for the past few months and my diffuser is still functioning perfectly. That said, I'm not sure what the long-term effect will be on my diffuser, so I might not recommend the practice to customers yet, but if you want to try it out for personal use I highly recommend it!

A customer favorite!

I wasn't sure about this scent at first, but everyone loves it! Something about the brightness of the grapefruit tickles the senses just right. It has a very strong cold throw and the hot throw is great. The strongest of the scents in my experience thus far. I will be coming back for this one again and again.

Definitely the best!

This is one of my favorite scents ever! Right here from CandleScience! It smells just like a grapefruit with sugar :) I make candles with it & the CT is 10/10, HT 8/10. I’m keeping this around while I figure out how to intensify that HT!

Super Grapefruit

Wanted to make my own defuser with ingredients I knew what it was ect. And I love grapefruit and I wanted it to not be so strong and just have a light sent. ...... So I mixed this with ***Himalayan Bamboo** and it smells amazing. This is the best I have found so far. I even got defuser sticks from candle science.

You will not be disappointed. I am happy that candles science has figured out how to make the grapefruit the middle note instead of the top note which it stays at.
