As much as I loved this scent in wax melts and oob, I can not get this to work in candles. I've tried wicking up and down several times, I even tried without dye and still can't keep a candle lit. This is the only fo I've had this issue with and I only use Candle Science scents. Frustrating but hopefully I can find another use for it eventually

REVISION NOTICE: It is our policy to notify customers if any part of a fragrance was changed for any reason.
As of May 2, 2019 our Green Tea and Lemongrass was revised to meet our stringent safety standards of being Phthalate-free. The original fragrance characteristics have been preserved. To see details of the previous version, click here.
Breathe in the botanical aromas of Green Tea and Lemongrass. A combination of herbal green tea leaves and citrusy lemongrass infuses this scent with irresistible freshness. Notes of green florals, jasmine petals, and orange blossom lend a sweetness while a touch of cedar and clean powder in the base reinforce the earthiness of the tea leaves. This well balanced fragrance is a fresh choice for a variety of applications, and would be a trendy addition to any candle or body care line. Reed diffusers, candles, and soaps add an intriguing natural aroma to any space. This fragrance oil is infused with natural essential oils including orange, lemongrass, and citronella. Note Profile:
Top: Green Tea, Lemongrass, Orange
Middle: Green Floral, Jasmine
Base: Orange Blossom, Cedar, Powder

We did not experience any acceleration. There was a little bit of separation but no ricing. When we stopped mixing we could see the separation of oil and water. We alternated stick blending and hand stirring for about 8 minutes total to bring the batter to a light trace. We tried to bring it to a medium trace but the stick blender began to overheat. After 24 hours, there was a small pool of oil on the surface of the soap that we blotted away before removing from the mold. The soap was not any softer than usual and the scent was incredibly strong and true. Using a little less fragrance can help minimize any seeping oil while still offering a strong scent. We did not see any sign of the soap going into gel phase and there was no discoloration. After 30 days the interior of the soap bars have a slight purple discoloration while the edges do not have any discoloration. This should easily be covered by using titanium dioxide or any other added color. The scent is still strong but did fade slightly.
Note: I first tried this fragrance after the reformulation, so no idea what it smelled like previously. Nonetheless, I love this fragrance and smell of lemongrass. I've been using in the following combination with no issues - GW 464 wax, ECO 2 wicks, 4oz & 8oz jelly jars.
Using C-3 wax with a CD 14 wick. The candle burns for 10 minutes then goes out. Is there a problem with this oil? I've never had this problem with any other oil.
I Absolutely love the way the green tea lemongrass Smells in my melt and pour soap.
I love this scent! It's good on its own, but if you add White Tea with it, it gives it a boost that makes it even more fragrant and fresh!
I really like this scent which has a refreshing medium scent. It is not too weak or too strong and does not require a large quantity to make my soaps smell refreshing.
I bought this scent a while back and have been hesitant to use it because I wasn't a fan of the smell, but once burned it's amazing. I used a little over the recommend amount in my five ounces of wax and I don't think I had to because it literally filled three rooms of my house. I will be buying more soon.
This is a very under estimated versatile fragrance. It’s a perfect blend with the green tea and herbal freshness of lemongrass for a wide appeal. It fairs well both as a masculine and feminine scent. It’s a great spa like scent as well.
I think it’s a great fragrance to add to any high end candle line.
I will have to admit, I like this version better than the old one. I see a few disagree and that’s ok too!
Bring back the old scent. This new scent is a Big NO for me! It smells nothing like the original. Please bring back the old fragrance oil for Green Tea and Lemongrass.
This. Fragrance. Is. Soooooooo. Amazing!
New candle maker but this is the first scent I've tried that has blown me away. It smells simply divine. I dont know what to describe it as tho. Its just really beautiful...
I haven't burnt my candle yet but the cold throw is amazing in GB464 using the Alex Method (no other method worked for me with that wax - I wont repurchase that wax)
excellent smell in hot and cold shot
I love this one. Very strong hot and cold throw.
You def smell more of the green tea in the new version, probably would do wonderful as a soap or body product.
While the revised is a nice, light fragrance, it is notably different from the original fragrance. More citrusy, not as musky, definitely more zingy. It's quite disappointing. Like the previous reviewer, the original fragrance is one of our top sellers, but this revised version isn't going to make it through our testing.
This new version smells nothing like the original. I’m so glad I was able to stock up on the older scent since this is one of our best sellers. I love that CS is trying to improve the scents but most of them smell nothing like the fragrances I’ve come to rely on for my business.
It is a spectacular scent, very fresh and soft. My candles smell delicious!!!!!
