Grapefruit and Mint Fragrance Oil
Choose a Variant

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.

Blends well with: Saffron Cedarwood, Ocean Rose

Alternative branding ideas: Citrus and Mint, Mint Paloma

Suggested colors: Pink, Green

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.

New Batch Different?

I love this scent. It’s a staple in my line, but for some reason my latest bottle does not seem as potent. I use a 10% fragrance load in Golden 464 Soy Wax. My latest candles seem to be lacking the grapefruit punch and they are more mint forward. Wondering if anyone has experienced the same thing…

This Fragrance is the I opened the bottle just mmmmm good. I used 9% in C55 powerful ct after 24 hours. Day two put one cube in my wax warmer. Wow ht was strong. When smell it out the bottle it smells like candy. But when you burn it you smell all the notes of the grapefruit and with a little bit of mint . I can't wait until they are fully cure . Candle science I love your company and you have the best customer service. I'm a customer for life.

Best seller/Personal Favorite

I cannot keep this in stock for my HP or CP soaps, I have to make at least 2 batches a month. And I can't keep my kids out of the sample packs! Even my male customers always approve of this scent when their companions have them smell it.

The scent itself is delightful, feels so fresh and sweet at the same time. We lit this just a day or two after pouring with 464 wax, and had an amazing HT already. Ordered a sample, a 8oz, and I will be coming back for more.
