Immerse yourself in the aromas of waves crashing onto a rocky coastline with a storm brewing in the distance. Our High Tide fragrance oil evokes the churn of the sea, wrapping the water, sand, and salt together into a clean and ozonic scent. Top notes of lemon, orange, and fresh ozone give way to a heart of briny sea salt and a hint of jasmine. Powder and light musk balance the woody violet and cedar in the base. Candles, wax melts, and reed diffusers made with High Tide fill rooms with a refreshing, yet relaxing atmosphere. Recharge with High Tide handcrafted bath and body creations that transport you to an upscale spa.

We did not experience any acceleration or separation. This fragrance did require extra stick blending just to get to a very light trace. After 24 hours there was no discoloration and no sign of the soap going through the gel phase. The scent was strong with a slightly sweet, fresh scent. After 30 days there was no discoloration and the scent remained strong. This would be an excellent fragrance to try a new swirl technique that requires a very light trace for an extended amount of time.

Great scent

"High Tide" smells terrific, and it lasts forever in the bar. One of my absolute favorites. Definite five star.


Great in CP soap, awesome seller

This works beautifully in CP soap, slow to trace and is a GREAT seller for me. I did notice the 5th time I made it it had mild separation and I worked through that. I love this scent. I use it in a matching lotion too.


Owner of Rooted River Essentials

I don't even remember getting this scent to be honest. But I was looking for a clean scent for a CP soap and found this on my rack. Smelled it and was completely blown away. It performed great in CP, w/ absolutely 0 acceleration. Will be using this in a candle and linen spray. This and Bamboo and Coconut are gonna be year round scents!


my high tide review

I bought this less than a year ago and it smells amazing! I've made both soap and wax melts with it and each time I've made them they come out smelling awesome each time the smell is so, crisp and is kinda calming to me while also making me feel ready for the day at the same time. I definitely see myself ordering this again!


Best seller

This is a constant best seller in my line, from soy candles, to CP soap, bath bombs, bubble bath, and melts. Of course, I call it Mermaid!

Ravens Nest Candles


They definitely got the high tide scent right lol. For some reason this has a fishy and fruity hot throw to it. The cold throw smells clean and fruity. Will not buy again.


Might be a new favorite!

I have a few favorite go-to scents - Ocean Breeze, Creme Brulee are top on my list. THIS one is new to me, just made my first High Tide candle, and I LOVE it!! Smells SOO good!



I loved it from the bottle but HT is very faint in 464 even though I used 10%.

Yagmur Erester Kozimor


Love this! Fresh and soo good! I bought it because another reviewer mentioned it smells similar to S.S. Sea Minerals and it does! Not exact but in the same vein. Very good, unique, ocean-y scent!


This FO I've struggled with. During testing I spilled the sample bottle 3 times! So with barely any left I used high tide in a blend. Unfortunately I had a wicking issue with a very small melt pool (using CS recommendation for mini tumbler). I've melted back down and have re-wicked. The amount that I could smell on the first go around was decent. The ocean water type fragrance was coming through. Can't wait to experiment with it some more. I should buy another bottle or two JIC!


Amazing! Big hit with customers!

I love this beachy scent! I gave out paw print wax melt samples with this fragrance and that turned into a lot of orders for my candles with this scent! It smells fresh and clean and even though I am selling it as a Spring/Summer scent, I think I may make it a year round scent. I use dark blue soy color in my wax melts and I can't keep them in stock! Another winner from CS!

Meowza & Barkley Candles LLC

LOVE!!! Have patience!

I absolutely love this scent. Once it truly cures for 2-weeks — it’s HT is amazing with 464. I used only 6%, too! It’s very fresh. Literally like fresh air. Highly recommend.


Can't smell High Tide

I mixed this with Pineapple Sage in soy wax and bees wax at 10% but for some reason, I can't smell it at all! I only smell Pineapple Sage. I'm kind of disappointed since it smells really good, OOB.


Not what I expected.

It smells very good in the bottle and when the candle is out, but when the candle is lit it does NOT smell. I use 6% FO for a kg of soy wax.

This FO performs beautifully in CP soap. I reached a very thin trace then lightly stick blended in this scent at about 5%. I then was able to take my time doing a gradient soap (6 layers) and the batter stayed fluid the entire time. Plus it smells great too!

I made a batch of CP soap with this blended with Oakmoss and Amber and that batch also turned out great and performed beautifully. These are almost done curing and the scent is still strong.


My all time favorite!

High Tide is my #1 favorite scent. A fresh, clean smell.


Love it!

I wasn't 100% in love with this scent OOB. However, I made some wax melts and one candle to test out and after curing for two weeks this might be one of my favorite scents! It's so refreshing and calming, but not too "in your face." To me, this is the perfect candle to light after you've cleaned the whole house. I really do love it!


My favorite ocean scent!

I absolutely love this scent! I made a sea turtle themed (cold process) soap using this FO and it was a dream to work with. No discoloration, no separation, and no ricing. Most definitely slowed down trace for me. Scent stays strong and hasn't faded during cure as of yet. Highly recommend for anyone looking for an ocean scent!

Ashley S.

Very faint smelling, need to use a lot

I have tried this in 464 and I have tried using 7-10% of this fragrance and there is no hot throw. Cold throw is good but hot throw is super faint. I really like how this smells I just wish it performed better!

This is my favorite out of CandleScience's ocean type fragrances. The throw is very strong. My customers love this scent.


Customers love it!

This scent doesn't do it for me personally as there is a lot more floral in it than what I would expect from an ocean scent, but my customers are wild about it! It's been very popular so I'll continue to make it! I'm calling it Waterfall Mist. I really appreciate the suggestions for different branding ideas! :)

Joni Watson, The Enchanted Valley Farm

Best fragrance yet

This has been one of the best fragrances and top sellers I've had! It works great with melt and pour, CP and HP soap. I've also used it in deodorants and the smell is so refreshing and lasting. Try it, you won't regret it.


Clean but not as watery as I wanted

Smelled from the bottle, this smells just like laundry detergent. You know the smell, that fresh, clean floral that passes for 'ocean' in this day and age. Testing though, it’s a springy citrus floral that’s quite nice if not oceanic in any way. Very pretty, but strong. I expected more salt for an scent with the word "tide" in it. I'm still looking for a true sea water salty scent.


One of our favorites


Smells good......

I'm not sure what to make of it, it smells good I think, it's unique. Possibly smells like a commercial cleaning product? But it's nice.......


Для долгой работы

Очень яркий аромат, очень стойкий. Можно до полу часа работать с массой. не темнеет, отлично ведёт себя.


Literal surf

This is my absolute favorite! It legit smells like being in the surf lineup and that first dip into the the crisp cold water. It’s such a nostalgic scent for any ocean lover. Nailed this one <3

SoyCal Candles

Clover Creek

I thought this was a little sweet out of the bottle, but I made a sample candle anyway. Made it with CB advanced using 8% to 8.5%. It’s wonderful! The whole family (Hubby and five kids) all love it!



I draw my soap designs before going to the studio to make soap. I was able create an abstract artisan design in the bars of soap by pulling a grid through layers of colors. Working at thin trace, the fragrance gave me plenty of time to work, no ricing or acceleration. The fragrance remained true in my soap material and continues to have a strong scent.

David Johnson

Zero hot throw in 464 wax, but the cold throw is very pleasant. I just wish it would fill the room when lit


Silent Thriller!

Though I don't love High Tide out of the bottle, the salty, oceanic scent goes amazingly with a fragrance I'm creating for a luxurious beachy feel. CS has plenty of fragrances that are amazing out of the bottle that I love and with equal appreciation, I love a fragrance that I can use to compliment other fragrances with. This is why I rate it 5 Stars!



Out of the bottle this scent is very perfume-y and floral to me. It's curing in 464 soy wax as we speak, so I can't speak to the HT scent, but I got a lot more floral than briny salt. TBD!

Meredith S.

Smells So Good!

Bestseller for sure!!! Its a delicate, yet powerful scent!

Eternal LIFE Candles


I poured some 464 candles with this scent and it's completely different OOB vs being in a cured candle. For some reason in my candles the scent started smelling like some sort of candy and ozone. It wasn't what I was looking for but it ended up being an interesting scent either way lol.


Hide Tide

Absolutely my favorite scent and a best seller!

Ocean View Candles


I opened this bottle and was awed, ok! I love this fragrance, it's great as a unisex scent. I used it in my whipped body butter, I can't WAIT to use it in a candle! I will write another review. Mmmmmmmm!!!


This fragrance is a winner with myself and staff in 464 at 10%!


Need this to come back in stock!

I ordered the 1oz bottle of this a few months back and finally used it in a candle last night and I absolutely love it! So refreshing, definitely getting this when it comes back in stock in the smaller sizes


Summer Favorite

I saw the reviews on this and had to order a 1oz bottle to try. OOB it was nice but I still wasn't 100% sold on it . I made a test candle using Soy 464 @ 10%. While I was pouring the candle my husband came upstairs to ask me "What is that fragrance? It's so calming and fresh." You could smell it throughout the entire house. Checked CT the next day and it was strong. I melted the wax melt that I made with the extra wax and the HT was incredible. This is definitely my summer favorite. It's like being seaside taking in the breeze from the ocean. Very clean, fresh, relaxing and luxurious. I'll take it since we had to cancel our May vacation due to Covid-19. This is a winner. Ordering 16 oz today.

My new favorite. I've been making candles for years and I think this the best scent I've ever had in stock!


Complex, yet refined.

Crystal clear waters, sand, and salt create a clean and ozonic fresh scent. If I had to select a fragrance oil that is most reminiscent of lounging by a landscaped rooftop pool by this would be my first choice. This fragrance blend is a sea salt core that is clean with fresh floral and green notes. Powder and light musk soften the ozonic qualities of the sea salt and minerals. I poured a few candles using this FO @9% in IGI 6006 wax and the HT was amazing. You could smell the candle all throughout the house. I had my windows opened and the breeze filled my home with a light and airy fragrance. I blended High Tide + Sea Minerals to create a unique spa-like fragrance with universal appeal.

Rick Maloney, Pour & Penchant


This fo behaved very lovely in my cp soap recipe!

Ms. Sheppard

Love it! Scent is great out of the bottle and has great hot and cold throw. It smells similar to a body wash Softsoap used to carry called sea minerals.


Owner, Indigo Moon by Katie

This has quicky become a favorite of mine AND a customer favorite! I first got a 1 oz. sample then quickly ordered a 4 oz. bottle of this FO. Now I need a much larger bottle because it has become a part of my Summer line. I LOVE it! Great cold and hot throw. Very fresh clean breezy scent.

Katie R.

Works Beautifully in CP Soap

I received this FO as a sample. It's a clean and refreshing coastal scent. Out of the bottle and in soap, I mostly smell sea salt and citrus. I really like it. This FO works wonderfully in cold-processed soap. It neither rices nor accelerates trace. I can't speak to discoloration yet as my soap is still curing. I plan to purchase for future soaps and candles.

Tranquility Candles by Patti

I saw a post from someone who said don't judge a fragrance when smelling it out of the bottle or from the cap. This is so true, High Tide when I purchased it my first sniff from the cap I really wasn't that thrilled with the aroma but when I made the candle wow.....what a awesome fragrance and I'm hooked. Such a all around feel good relaxing experience. Give it a try you will love and my customers are so happy too.



I love this scent! I ordered 8, and this is my fave. To me, it’s subtle but it’s powerful at the same time- definitely feels like a “complete” scent. I mixed it for fun with some other ocean-esque scents on here and the results are ridiculously yummy. This is going to be my base for a lot of scents moving forward!

Daniel B.

Don't judge a scent out of the bottle

I'm making this right now and the moment I poured out of the bottle to measure I can smell just how salty this is! I love it! I can't wait to test the burn!


beautifully behaved in soap

I really enjoy this scent. I was a little hesitant on using it when I first bought it. Out of the bottle it smells floral and quite sweet. Once sopanified, the scent is floral still but very sea like. The discripton of this fragrange oil fits perfectly. It smells in soap likea sea storm is brewing.



This fragrance smells so good out of the bottle! I poured it with 464 wax. Both the cold and hot throw are crazy beautiful! Such a fresh and watery scent! I have a very large home and I can smell it a few rooms away!!

Diana Gonzales

Favorite Scent

This has to be my favorite scent. It's a hit with everyone else I show it to as well. It smells very fresh and clean straight out the bottle. It makes an even better candle. It's not overpowering but it can freshen up the whole room!


Modern aquatic freshy

Straight out of the bottle, this smells like laundry detergent. It's the usual boring modern aquatic floral/citrus blend. However, once it's on the skin (lotions, perfume) it's a springy citrus floral that's very nice. It doesn't make me think of ocean water at all, but then most oceanic or 'sea' inspired scents these days don't smell like the sea to me. They smell like clean fresh citrus florals. So for that, this is excellent. As others have reported, it's also quite strong, so a little goes a long way.



This smells like a fresh ocean breeze, it has a beachy ozone smell and sticks well in cold process soap. Soaps beautiful no issues



Great scent

Dancing orchid Soapworks

Beautiful Fragrance

I use this frangrance oil in an electric wax warmer and cannot believe the strength of the smell and the quality (does not evaporate or burn). It is very reminiscent of a beach! I can really smell sand and ocean. It fills up my place and it only took several drops. I love it!



All I have to say is that this fragrance behaved beautifully in my cp soap recipe. I wish I could show pictures.


Smells soooo good!

Used it in my CP soap and it behaved very well! I was able to achieve nice three color swirl. The scent is clean and refreshing without being too overpowering or smelling like cologne! Love this scent and will buy again!!

Owner, The Happy Lotus

This candle smells SO good. Fresh, clean, salty air and masculine... as if someone sprayed cologne and jumped in the ocean, then came out and gave you a hug. Love it.


This is a nice, fresh smell. Smells exactly my husband's cologne though, so definite masculine vibes in there (think Aqua di Gio, Light Blue kind of smell).



I've been looking for luxurious beach scents to add to my seaside spa collection and this is perfect! Obsessed!



I have to agree by saying I do prefer High Tide to Sea Minerals. It's just that little bit fresher and less musky, although Sea Minerals does have its merits as well. I'm working blending High Tide with some older fragrances to get that perfect spring/summer ocean candle.

Three Palms Candle Co.

Very Fresh

I haven’t made a candle with this yet but oob it’s very fresh and salty, it’s also got a slight cologne vibe to it. I definitely prefer this one to the new Sea Minerals fragrance


Smells so fresh and clean oob. I can not wait to make a candle.
