Just a follow-on to my previous comment. I tried mixing Harvest Berry in equal parts with Black Cherry Merlot and Cinnamon Bun, and the result I called "Autumn Wreath". The idea of a orange and yellow leafed wreath gave a better mental image for the grassy notes (still there and apparently impossible to bury). Probably any fruity scent would sub in just as well for Black Cherry Merlot (which slides away into oblivion in this mixture, a sad fate for one of my personal favorites.) Not sure about the hot throw because I just made it today, but the cold throw is nice.

If you're looking to recreate the fragrance characteristics of Harvest Berry, we recommend a blend of our Cranberry Woods and Cardamom and Star Anise. Harvest Berry is an explosion of cinnamon blended with fresh berries and hints of orange, anise, and clove. Incredibly strong in both paraffin and soy wax, this fragrance has the strength and appeal to be a best seller throughout the fall and holiday season. This fragrance is infused with Cinnamon leaf, Ginger, and Amyris essential oils. Note Profile:
Top: Cinnamon, Orange Peel, Clove
Middle: Plum, Berry
Base: Black Tea, Anise, Vanilla
Suggested Colors: Red, Burgundy, Brown

Bought this based on the scent notes, and it has a really strong, very unexpected grassy scent. I guess that is the "harvest" part of harvest berry. I'd like to point out that "grass" was not listed in the fragrance notes. What to do with this? I'm going to start by trying to mix it away with things like black cherry merlot and wassail. Not a fan. Wouldn't buy again, and really regret that I bought 8 oz of this thing because now I have to find a way to use it.
Smells horrible! Smells like someone who doesnt clean after using the bathroom for a week! Then tried to cover it up with some sugar. I ordered 8 oz and honestly no idea what to do with it! Hoping i can find something to mix it with to make it better. Maybe whiskey! Since thats so strong. Anyways if you like that smell this is totally for you! Consider doing something with it for April fools.
I'm definately getting the tea. No cinnamon. Smells like berry tea to me. I like the scent, but it really isn't as described.
Strong throw in soy wax, smells great! One of my new favorite fall scents!
I made CP soap with this fragrance oil last week. I did 2 oz. of this mixed with 4 oz. of cranberry orange fragrance from another company. Currently all my soap smells like is cinnamon (think cinnamon candy. Like "red hots") with some orange and cranberry in the background, which isn't necessarily a bad thing since this soap will be ready in November. I'm hoping the cinnamon mellows out and allows the orange and cranberry to shine through a little bit more, but if not, it's still a great seasonal fall/winter fragrance. If you plan on mixing this fragrance with anything else that may potentially be weaker, maybe go with a 1 oz. bottle and call it good. Overall, my soap stayed very fluid for a long time. No ricing, acceleration, or any issues like that. :)
I loved this scent!
So fake and and so strong like a horrible perfume
I loved the smell straight out of the bottle, but in soy wax it was disappointing.
I couldn't quite tell what it smelled like, once I lit my candle.
I won't reorder this fragrance oil again.
So this scent isn't horrible, it's just really rough. It's very Christmas time-y, and I know that a lot of people will like this scent if that's what you're into. I was looking for a little more subtly, though.
All in all, not bad. Just really stays trapped in your nose.
I love this smell. I think it's true to the description and is appealing to my nose. We used it in a soy tart wax and it has a good hot/cold throw. I do want to add that even though I love this scent, my girlfriend and fellow candle maker thinks it smells like ketchup, so like all scents not everyone will like it.
Strong performance (tested in GB 464). Disliked the smell.
I really didn't like the smell out of the bottle, and the family said "gag", but it was very different in the finished candle. Great throw cold and hot in GB 464. I get many requests for this scent in the fall. Nice blend of both berry and cinnamon.
Okay, so I have poured at least 50 candles with this scent, and customers love it. I love it. Yes, it has a strong cinnamon smell...hence, the name "Harvest". I am pleased with it and have purchased many times.
I was disappointed with this scent. It smelled of nothing but cinnamon. Everyone at my latest candle event thought the same and I didn't sell 'one' candle. :-(
I used it in my halloween scented candles. Very strong and sophisticated, close to orange tea with cinnamon. Awesome!
I didn't like this scent, it's a little too overpowering and perfume-like for my taste. I didn't detect any cinnamon, more of a floral type of smell.
I really can't stand this smell, it just doesnt seem right at all to me. It smells like you took 10 different oils and mixed them all together.
I definitely underestimated this fragrance even after reading the awesome reviews! Its a great fall/winter scent! I did 1.5 oz in 1 lb of Advanced Soy and it has an amazing throw! Hands down, my new FAVORITE CS fo!
This fragrance is very potent, I was overwhelmed by it while pouring at 10%. Very fall or winter. Use purple dye with it to change the perception and it doesn't seem as Christmas-y
After a few minutes of sucking on a Jolly Rancher Fire Stix, that scent you smell is the scent of this oil. Or the once-popular red-hot candies. I use in oil burner. If it gets too strong, I just add a little water.
At first I did not care for this scent, I was expecting more berry. This smells like a ginger tea to my nose - very spicy. The scent has since grown on me and I would reorder. I use 6006 with zinc wicks.
I agree with the previous reviewer that folks will either love or hate this scent. Cinnamon in general seems to be a very divisive smell lol. This has a strong kick of cinnamon, followed by a very sweet tangy berry scent. Has really great throw in GB 464 at 1oz/lb. I would order this again if I had a request from a cinnamon lover, but this is probably not the best choice for an "all purpose" holiday fragrance.
This is definitely the type of scent people will either love or hate. I personally love it. The cranberry and spices are an unusual but lovely combination. Throws great cold and hot.
Expected more berries, but smell alot of Ginger, which I love. I can see you either love this or hate it...I love it. Unusual...& I keep wanting to smell it again & again.
This just does not have a pleasant distinctive smell AT ALL.
