High Tide Fragrance Oil
Choose a Variant

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.

Smells like cheap soap

This is not my favorite smell but folks seem to love it. It does have a clean smell but smells less like ocean and more like cheap seashell-shaped hand soap from the 90s that you’d find in a sketchy beachside motel. It has had amazing hot throw, almost TOO much.
Personally I’d probably give it a 2 on scent but bumped it up since other folks seem to love it.

Fades in CP

OOB I fell in love with this scent. However, as it cured the scent has faded. I'm at 2 months now, and it has a light, pleasant spa/ocean scent. I used a lot of natural cocoa butter, so this comes through strongly. As I soaped at almost 6% FO, I can't increase the amount per recommendations. That said, it is very easy to work with, and would be lovely in melt and pour and hot process soap, where the scent won't be diminished in the saponification process.

Just love it!

This is a smell I can't get enough of! I got it as a free sample & love it... The smell is clean & fresh, it definitely has a laundry smell to it. It is like doing laundry on a tropical island and hanging your white linen clothes out to dry on a line between the palm trees. However, the laundry scent isn't incredibly over bearing but it is prominent. Not sure how else to describe it. At minimum get a free sample of this with your next order.... I think you will be surprised!

Good experience

Fragrance smells just like the title of it. The scent did pretty decent in CP soap. It's been 24 hours and the scent is still there, just as strong as when I made the soap yesterday. Will definitely purchase again.

Not My Personal Favorite But Customers Can't Get Enough!

To be honest I don't like this scent all that much. It's okay... but very much reminds me of axe body spray + sea salt. BUT I added it in as a last resort 2 years ago and my customers LOVE IT. I bring it back for Spring\Summer and they can't get enough! It's sold out every year and almost everyone who smells it at markets LOVES it. So I'll keep it around until they stop buying it!
