While I was testing a wick, I used my sample of this FO and made two 10oz candles with Soy 464 wax. I am letting one candle cure for at least 2 weeks to test the scent, and I lit the other candle after only 2 days of curing so I could see how the wick performed with my container. After only curing for 2 days, the hot throw was decent! Not overpowering, but I could smell it even from the next room over! I can't wait to see how the candle that cures for the whole 2 weeks will perform. Impressed already.

Grapefruit and Mint is a super refreshing and sophisticated summer fragrance oil. It starts with ripe, tangy grapefruit fused with garden-fresh mint. Hints of lavender and rhubarb add depth and complexity to this fresh fragrance. Citrus essential oils enhance this bold scent, while mint, thyme, and bergamot essential oils give it an herbal counter to the punchy, juicy grapefruit.
Grapefruit and Mint candles and reed diffusers are ideal for brightening up entryways, kitchens, and common areas. This equally fruity and earthy combination is beautifully spa-like in soaps, scrubs, and foaming bath butters.
This fragrance oil is infused with natural essential oils, including grapefruit, mandarin, orange, lemon, thyme, bergamot, and buchu leaf.

We did not experience acceleration or separation. We observed signs of a partial gel with minimal insulation. We did not see any signs of discoloration and the scent is strong. This would be a good choice to use basic swirl techniques with several colors.
I love this scent. I was a little nervous because it seemed like a strange combination to me, but wow it smells so good. It doesn't even smell like two scents were thrown together, it's like smelling a full part grapefruit and a full part mint.
This is my absolute favorite scent and topped with dried mint leaves is amazing! 10/10. Highly recommend.
This is my favorite scent ever. Smells amazing HT and CT in paraffin/soy blend. My customers LOVE it.
Just smells like grapefruit. The grapefruit scent is fine but where's the mint??
I came here to post exactly that, "Ahmaaaaazing", and saw somebody beat me to it. It is fantastic in my M&P soap. I couldn't wait to try it in CP so M&P it was, the day I received it. So good, so fresh, the grapefruit scent just shines. I don't get much of a mint note off of it, but that may show in CP soap after a cure. I will be ordering more very soon.
This scent is absolutely wonderful!! I made some candles with Grapefruit and Mint and it smells so good. It has a fresh smell and the Mint is a game-changer!! I recently tried mixing it with Orange Blossom and it is a Must Try!!! It is totally worth it!!!!
Ive been making Soy Candles since 2002. Im using 464 10% load and this fragrance has ZERO THROW! Beware!
We were looking for a great citrus scent that was not as mainstream as lemon or orange. We're also a big fan of Palomas so grapefruit was a natural option. This is our favorite citrus scent that candlescience offers. We though nothing could beat Blood Orange. But Grapefruit and Mint is so clean and refreshing. It's a huge hit with our customers.
I made CP soap and the scent is strong. The entire house smells like grapefruit mint and it's been two days since I made my loaves. I love this fragrance. it smells clean and uplifting. It performed beautifully in soap. I used a water discount and my temps were a bit under 95 degrees for my lye and oils. I had a light trace and the soap took FOREVER to get thick. Perfect for swirls, not so good for layers as I'm impatient! Highly recommend.
I looovee it! Can wait to try it on a candle.
My next order I will definitely be getting a bigger bottle. Nice and strong and relaxing.
I really like this scent! its so sweet and refreshing. It has been hard getting fragrance oils because a lot of places are sold out or taking too long to process orders. I bought a 16 oz bottle and I am so happy that I did.
such a nice and clean fruity smell! the mix of mint and citrusy smells is just amazing. def recommend and will be buying a larger size.
Has the grapefruit and mint changed. I received 3 bottles and the scent is not the same as the one I already have. Not in a good way!
First, I'll start off by saying that this is my favorite scent that we order and make candles out of. Don't think I'm biased - these *fly* at the farmers markets we attend. It's refreshing, invigorating, and leaves you feeling like you've just taken a really nice shower. It's been great during the spring and summer, and I'm sure it'll carry that momentum through the fall and winter (we're based in Southern California, so we don't get much in the way of seasons aside from temperature shift and longer/shorter days). Pleeeeease continue making this fragrance oil! The only thing I'm hoping for in the way of improving this scent is to get it the Clean Scent certification that Candle Science has started doing. Thank you!!
I simply adore this fragrance.. Perfect blend of grapefruit & mint.. This scent travels through my entire home and my customer's always demand more of this product.. If heaven had a smell this is it.
I usually prefer the fall scents, but this scent tops almost all of them! It's not overpowering compared to a few others. It's fresh and fruity.
Disclaimer: I haven't tested this fragrance oil with candles, so I can't speak for it's cold and hot throws, but I just made a reed diffuser with it and it's lovely! The fragrance is so nice and fresh. Perfect for a kitchen, bathroom, or bedroom! I think it will appeal to all demographics. :)
I will be back to attest for it's cold and hot throws once I make a candle with it.
The Grapefruit and Mint FO is amazing, my customers love it!
LOOOOOVE this FO! Perfect summer scent! Refreshing and slightly sweet! Just beautiful!
I can't get enough of this scent. It is fresh, sweet, tangy, and has decent HT and great CT.
This one is great, you will smell the grapefruit first then the mint which is awesome. I was afraid the mint might overpower the fruity citrus scent I was looking for but it didn't instead it complimented the grapefruit beautifully. AWESOME JOB CANDLE SCIENCE
This FO is nice and fresh and behaves well in CP.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with it, it's nice - but not unforgettable or distinctly different from other citrus or minty scents.
My customers like it too but somehow it just doesn't have the "wow factor" for me.
Crisp, red grapefruit... refreshing mint... this is a great fragrance oil!
The grapefruit scent is really strong still while my soap is curing. I'd heard a lot about citrus scents tending to fade, but really happy with this one! It's unmistakably grapefruit and the mint is really nice with it too. super pleasant and fresh smelling!!
This scent is hard to keep any product in stock that contains it! We have numerous male clients that love it! My husband has a car aroma ornament in his personal truck with this scent & he loves it. We’ve already received some orders for summer using grapefruit & mint in our products!
Gotta let this one cure for 2 weeks. Killer ht after that! My absolute favorite fo! Worth the wait!
I was really excited about this one because I love grapefruit! OOB was mouth watering for me. Pouring it was a peace of cake and cold throw was great BUT....
After lighting it after a cure and letting it burn for about an hour in a 8oz. jar, it was just a slightly fruity hot smell. I used a CD-6 wick with coconut wax.
I wish CS had strength chart/scale for their fragrances. Bummer : /
I love any scent which has mint involved. If you like this, you might love the Peppermint and Eucalyptus.
I LOVE grapefruit scents. I have bought this fragrance three times now, and it still smells absolutely amazing. I used it in shampoo bars and soaps last year and they were a HUGE hit. This year I plan on making soaps and shampoo bars again. Better make bigger batches this time around!
I really do not like this one, smells very medicimal. I like mint mojito much better.
I didn’t love this that much but after a two week cure it smelled amazing. Used parasoy and got a great cold and hot throw. This scent is citrus-y but soft. None of the harshness that some citrus can have. I would liken it to volcano or fruit slices. It smells different than those but has that same soft citrus scent. So if you like either of those I think you’ll love this.
I did my first test burn with this fragrance oil in 6006 wax in a 16 oz container with a CD 10 wick..........perfection!! I walked by my master bedroom after an hour into the burn and the fragrance just glided out of the room and into the rest of the house. It truly is a perfect grapefruit that actually has an excellent hot and cold throw. LOVE
We absolutely love this scent in our candles. It has been one of our best selling this spring. We also carry the Lemon Verbena, but I personally think this smells cleaner than that and just smells fresh.
I love this scent. Used it in cold process soap. Worked like a dream.
This FO has a great CT and HT! I used 9% fragrance load and i think it would be great a little lower as well. Perfect for spring and summer!! Try it!
Super fresh scent- something i would use in the bathroom, or a mud room. Definitely better for soaps as that is the profile. Bought it to try and used less than recommended for the amount of wax but it worked out perfectly, not too strong.
My Love Letter to Grapefruit & Mint: this really shines in body butters. Smells so fresh and invigorating. My personal stash is never without this scent. My favorite routine is showering with this scent, washing my hair in this scent, using body butter with this scent, and using body spray with this scent. I’ve received so many compliments when wearing this. I’m hesitant to call it my favorite because the Rosemary FO is basically life affirming (LOL) but this is definitely a really close second.
This scent is amazing. I loved it straight out of the bottle, and it also smells amazing in my soap. It did accelerate my trace, but I also did a 33% lye solution (water discount), which may have exacerbated that a little bit. But it wasn't a huge issue, and the scent of this fragrance oil more than makes up for it. I did shampoo bars and soap bars out of this, and something tells me they will sell out extremely quickly!
Our company and our patrons have loved this edition to our candle line. It's got a clean and tangy freshness about it with just the right amount of mint in the background. It's fantastic!
I used this in my Spring line and it exploded like wildfire with my customers (in soy wax & candles). The perfect blend of mint & grapefruit.
ABSOLUTELY ADORE this scent!!! I love how the mint beautifully "lifts" the citrusy grapefruit into the air. Its awesome. Will totally order more!!!!
Love this scent!!! Used in CP soap and 464 Wax performed beautifully no issues. Must have!!
One of our favorite scents; customers love it and so do we!
I use this FO in 464 soy at full % and it is one of my top sellers! in candles AND melts the hot throw is strong! It is definitely zesty, citrusy and full of mint. This scent is for sure one that I would recommend and will continue to use :) 5 stars all around
I don't even like grapefruit and this is one of my favorites for the season. It instantly sold well!
I couldn't keep this in stock over the Spring months. Highly favored by my customers for my soy wax candles & melts and one of my faves as well. Just the right amount of GF and Mint to make the perfect, refreshing combination.
I ordered the sample size i wasn’t sure, i do not really like grapefruit or minty scents .. I’m more clean cotton fresh scent, 1oz of this scent got me 5 clamshells that smell amazing, and STRONG !!!!i wish i did 6 ,I’m back to order more, I’d like to give it a bad rating so no one will buy it 😉
I bought this one because of all the reviews and I was looking for this type of scent. The cold throw is perfect but the hot throw it's almost none, I'm not sure what I did wrong. I used the 4oz tin with a eco10 and used the the max % allowed for the fragrance poured at 165 degrees. Any feed back will be greatly appreciated.
I still gave the fragrance a 5 *s because its smells amazing!
It's simply my new best seller, it's up there in popularity with peach nectar!
It’s true what they say don’t judge a book by its cover. From the bottle I was unsure and nervous. However, both cold and hot throws are amazing!!!!! This has become an extremely big favorite to me and my customers.
I’m not a fan of minty scents but this fragrance is amazing! The zest from the grapefruit really compliments the mint and balances it beautifully. Definitely will be repurchasing
My absolute favorite!!!! Smells AMAZING!!!!!!
This was a scent I instantly like. It has a soft sweet smell. As someone who does not like over powering smells, this works for me. I think I may add to my initial product line.
Smells EXACTLY like fresh grapefruit. I don't smell a bunch of mint OOB...maybe when I make wax melts I'll smell it. Very fresh scent.
Love the combination and a great pick me up! I purchased a big bottle and made the right choice.
This is exactly what my candle line needed, some fruity and refreshing. I am a huge citrus fan. I am in looooooove. It has a nice strong grapefruit scent with the hint of mint which is perfect. Just made a test candle using Coconut soy wax. Within the hour it already had good cold throw. I used 10% with 9oz of wax. This is a keeper!!!!
