Absolutely impressed

I’ve dealt with a lot of customer service in my time I have to say candle science and Amanda candlscience absolutely outstanding my shipment was late and didn’t arrive when it was first do they immediately refund refunded my shipping cost then there was an issue what I’m not sure if it was the heat for what but one of my fragrance oil‘s really has long brown one which smells amazing everything in my box not amazing because it leaks because they got too hot in along the way Anyway I ordered the 6 ounce hex set on glasses and one of them was scratched in a couple of them had some issues my wax and got the oil in it so it’s mine too but not only did I get my shipment costs refunded because it was late which was no fault of candle science but UPS is guaranteed. Which I didn’t know but I was made aware of so I got my shipping cost refunded and also candle science re-shipped my whole order since it was run from the oil weights and some of the classes were messed up which was amazing I mean I am so pressed thank you so much candle science you’re awesome and you have a loyal customer for life now thank you

Blind Ambition Evolved

By far my favorite scent! So strong and smells up the whole house. My family loves it as well!


One of the Best Scents

This is a Top Seller for me , The Throw is Absolutely Amazing Cold or Hot. I Make Room Sprays with this oil and they sell out every time I just hope they dont change the scent on this it's one of a kind!!!! Thank you Candle Science for Another Amazing Scent..


Amazing Scent

After reading reviews I thought I would try the scent myself. I am glad I did because it is an amazing scent! Not only do I love it, my customers do too! No seriously, it smells just as you may think; gingerbread with a light sweet scent of frosting. I use it in 8oz tins with GB464 Soy Wax and not only is the cold throw smell good, but the hot throw smells just as amazing. Ordering more right after this review!

Shawn , Candles In Tins

Love this scent

This is a very smooth vanilla & graham cracker scent ,has both cold and hot throw (heavenly) I use with soy wax for my candle melts.


MCC Aroma

This is one of my most popular scents! Gave it to my mother in a small candle to test out, and she immediately wanted the largest candle I had made with this scent. Feedback is that it is not overpowering, and if you let it burn for a little while your house will smell like you've been baking cookies all day. We love this scent and will keep it year round!



I love this scent, it was recommended by one of the members in a group on Facebook. I decided to try it, and immediately purchased the larger (16 OZ) bottle. This scent is so amazing, and smells like the holidays. I recently attended a craft show, and my soy candles sold out within the first hour. I use this in 444, and the scent throw is always amazing.
I love Candle Science strong powerful fragrance oils, and most of my top sellers are with CS. The only downside to this fragrance oil is that I cant use it in soaps. Thank you Candle Science!!

We have at one time or another tried almost all of the FO's Candle Science has to offer and out of them all, I have to say this one is my favorite! It is a perfect combination of baked Gingerbread, Vanilla Frosting, and Holiday Spices, with a sweet warm finish!! Always reminds me of Christmas time! I can't get enough!!


Nothing special

After reading the reviews I made a bunch of these to sell this fall. Needless to say they didn't sell well and I'm stuck with many leftovers. The fragrance is more gingerbread than icing and comes across dry. I used at 10% with ig6006 para soy wax. Next year I will try a sugar cookie or Snickerdoodle instead


everyone's favorite

This is the one candle everyone always asks me for. Everyone loves it. It performs very well in 464, strong hot and cold throw. It smells so strongly cold that if you leave the lid off of the jar, it will scent a small room. It is perfect.

Shawn C

The BEST bakery scent!

This FO is freaking INCREDIBLE!! The scent throw is phenomenal. I've got an unburned candle sitting nearby and I can smell it as strongly as if I was burning it. And it smells like pure deliciousness! Definitely a new favorite and my customers love it as well!


Amazing Hot and Cold throw

This smells like Graham crackers and frosting which is exactly how I would expect Hansel and Gretels house to smell. It is a very strong smell but not over powering. I use 2oz per lb in 464 soy wax with eco wicks. This is a favorite with customers. It has a great hot and cold throw.


Good Winter Choice

Used in 444 Soy with good results on hot throw, but not the strongest I've ever seen. It's definitely a good general "baking cookies" scent for your candle line that will be popular over the holidays for sure. The cinnamon is not too prevalent so it might be a good companion to the stronger cinnamon scents (for people who don't like strong cinnamon) while still having that "Christmas cookie" feel.

I got 4oz bottles of Cinnamon Buns, Gingerbread, Hansel & Gretel's House, and Creme Brule, and I have to say they are all so similar that I can hardly tell the difference between them in a finished candle, with Creme Brule being the most different. If I were trying to come up with a selection of food scents for a candle line, I might only pick one of these four to include. They all have slightly different notes, but after a while you realize they all have a very similar overall tone. I would suggest trying smaller bottles of these to see which has the undertone you prefer, or try mixing them with other scents that compliment their specific undertones to bring out a wider variety of custom scents.


This is a really yummy scent. I use it for my cookie scent.

The Burning Mitten

Another Unexpected Favorite!

I am starting to think that what I think is going to be the least favorite will, in fact, be the best seller! My sister and many of my customers even want this scent in the Spring and Summer!!! This would be a GREAT addition to your holiday and fall collection. Try it out!


not one of my favorites

I've recently made a handful of soy candles of this scent and I find the FO to be slightly intoxicating. Really sweet and not what I was imagining at all when I ordered! Unlike what other people have said about it being weak, it is definitely not weak. Haven't burnt any of my candles yet so hopefully it will be not as poignant. I wish all FO's had this strong of a fragrance as this one does when you open the bottle.


Smells so yummy!

I used this for my soy candles. It really has a great scent throw you can smell it in the whole house & my customers love this one for the holidays. I kinda changed the name to gingerbread on my labels :p


Love this!!

Perfect for fall/winter. Not too strong or overbearing!


Won't buy again

Don't know exactly why, but I didn't like this one.


Strong - Great throw

Super strong throw in parasoy, you can smell the raisins, graham crackers and icing. I was testing a melt in the kitchen and it lingered into other rooms of the house.


It's ok. Just very weak. But I am finding this to be true of all the "food" scented oils sold at CS.


Such the perfect Holiday smell. It instantly fills the room and makes everything cozy and warm. This is my go to Holiday scent.


Cinnamon Toast Crunch

The second I smelled the oil and the scent again when it warmed in the wax I recognized the scent. It smells exactly like a bowl of cinnamon toast crunch. But that isn't a bad thing.


Makes the entire room smell delicious!

I ordered a sample of the hansel and gretel, and
It smells fantastic!
I was skeptical when I opened the bottle, the smell was
Just okay. Once it was mixed and poured, it is amazing.
Thanks again CS!


Hot buttery waffles

For starters, I love food scented candles, so this was right up my ally. To me this smells just like "Waffle Crisp" cereal that I use to eat when I was a teen. I love everything about this scent--buttery, sugary, spicey--yum! Smells like delicious carbs lol. I always want to bake cookies when this is burning. I can't wait to pour another one for myself, and maybe this time I'll ever share a few too. Poured 1oz/LB in GB 464.


Coronado Soap

Just got my first order of this fragrance. It's amazing! The scent invokes all the wonderful memories and emotions of the holidays. Sure to be the most popular scent of the season!



I really love this scent. I did a test on a few candles and burned them for at least 6 hours or more and I kept smelling vanilla as the main player not so much spice, nonetheless I really love this scent. It's definitely a keeper!!

Eures truly

Rave reviews from customers

This scent was amazing in GB 464. Smelled a lot like a gingerbread and vanilla cookie to me- GREAT for the holidays. I would say 90% of my customers said that they wanted more because they couldn't believe how much it filled the whole house! Will definitely order this one again.

Ang S.


This one does not disappoint. It really does smell like the crust from the gingerbread, nice and bakery. I add a bit of cranberry for a twist. Great scent.


Pleasantly Shocked-This Smells AWESOME

I took a chance and ordered 8oz of this scent based on the positive reviews. SO glad I did because it smells amazing! My 8 year old immediately said 'this smells like a gingerbread house!'---it is strong but not overpowering or 'fake-y' smelling. I would describe this as a Fall scent. Take a chance with this one-it's a keeper!

Amy Jones


Love this scent! Smells amazing in my tarts and candles.

Brandy P

Not My Fav.

Reminded me of cough serup... But my Customers seem to like it.

Angel Shaw


I love this scent! For those I made this candle for, have RAVED about this scent!! and of course I kept one for myself because it smells AMAZING!! I highly recommend this fragrance! An all year around scent!

Sian Eure

My favorite fragrance from CS hands down!

I use Ecosoya CB-135 and this is my favorite scent candlescience has!!! The delicious scent throw is out of this world...the smell is divine and I always sell this scent out FAST.

Aimee Coursey

Perfect Christmas Scent!!

I used this in GB 464 at 12% and it is a PERFECT blend of sweet and spice!! Exactly what I was looking for in a Christmas candle.


Wonderful scent!!

I just ordered this fragrance yesterday and got it in the mail today..kudos to candlescience for excellent fast shipping! I made a candle just a few hours ago using this fragrance and as I am writing this comment I can smell the wonderful scent. I can only imagine how it will smell once it is cured and ready to burn. Excellent choice!!


Pure Magic!

I really love this fragrance! Although I cannot smell the fruit notes like "juicy raisins," this is still in my top three scents from Candle Science. It is sweet, warm and cozy.


This scent smells almost edible!

I had this scent simmering at a craft show in August and customers were asking every vendor in the building where this scent was coming from. Customers did not want to wait until the holidays for this one!



I have seldom found a spice type scent that I like, but I LOVE this one! It is now one of my favorite fragrances!

Kim in Texas

AWESOME Fragrance!!!

Hansel & Gretel House, used in Ecosoya CB Advanced 100% Soy. Let cure in 48 Hours the cold throw was good. 4Days Total cure time, cold throw and Hot throw was AWESOME!!! Apothecary 10 oz Jar, 2 Wicks Hansel & Gretal filled my Living room in 30-40 minutes and within an Hour scent traveled to my Upstairs. My Husband commented no candle scent has traveled that far.
AWESOME!!! CandleScience and you have excellent Customer Service & Delivery!

Angela Jackson


Giving it 4 stars because when I originally smelled it out of the bottle it smelled exactly like Cinnamon Buns to me. Nevertheless, an awesome scent!


must try!

if you only buy one baked scent, this is the one to try! Smells like gingerbread and has great hot throw



I have a 16 oz tin in a very large room and it smells up the whole room. Great scent!



This fragrance is awesome!!!! I poured this yesterday with soy and lit the candle today. I could not beleive the throw from this. It filled my whole upstairs in a half an hour. Candlescience you have fantastic oils.





Like walking into a bakery!

I thought my sales would drop on this one in the spring but it is in such demand!! Fills my whole house with my 8oz candle. I use it in any soy(I only use natural waxes)and it burns so nicely. YUM YUM!


Love it!

Great scent.

Ella L.

A nice surprise!

Out of the bottle, this fragrance smelled similar to other sweet cake/cookie type oils, however, when I used it in a soy candle, the true aroma of the raisins and goodness came popping out! I love it! It is a regular for me now.

Dina from Chittenango

Hansel and Gretel's House

Yummy! This scent has my house smelling like a bakery. (my husband actually thought I was baking something-ha!) This scent is not overwhelming but just right.
