Grapefruit and Mangosteen Fragrance Oil

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

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.

This is the kind of scent that makes me happy to be alive. I’m lying in bed typing this and thinking about how good it smells. Thank you, CS!!

Love it!

Love this one, incredibly popular in our shop. In soap it rices initially but easily smooths out when stick blending. Scent retention is strong, didn't experience any discolouration. Great in all the products we put it in.

Beautiful

I bought a 1oz of this and made a test candle probably 6 weeks ago. Burning it today and the hot throw with 464 is amazing. Will definitely be buying a 16oz of this one. Is is just beautiful!!

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!
