Details

A complex union of bamboo foliage and rich green florals. The subtle character of this fragrance is calming rather than overwhelming, so it is well suited for a high-end or aroma-therapy line - where a room filling, not house filling fragrance is desired.

This fragrance oil is infused with natural essential oils including bergamot.

We did experience a moderate amount of acceleration, but no separation occurred. The batter came to a thick trace very quick, and the batter seemed workable for a very short period of time. We did not see any signs of discoloration and the scent was strong. We observed signs of a partial gel with minimal insulation. A single color or layered design would be ideal for this fragrance.

Great Scent

owner

I only give 5 stars if the smell fills my living room-this will scent a bathroom

Crowd pleasing scent!

This smells so beautiful in my Lampe Berger! I came upon this accidentally when someone swore that this smelled realistically like honeysuckle (which i does NOT at all imo). I am not displeased though! I usually prefer floral scents, but I know not everyone does, so I use this one when we have mixed company, like larger get togethers.

This is almost exactly what I imagine bamboo would smell like, except sweeter. I do not work with scents as a profession so I'm using these descriptive terms in a layman's fashion. The words that come to mind when I smell it are green, sweet, fresh, nature.

CP Soap Use

This is a nice light, fresh green scent that would be a great mixer but it does not play well in CP soap at all. Might be okay in HP soap. It completely seized up the soap and then caused the batch to separate into a lump of solid soap with a layer of liquid at the bottom. I did eventually get it to come together after putting it in a crock pot for about 30 minutes and mixing it within an inch of it's life. The scent might have morphed on me due to the cook, so I am not sure what the scent was suppose to smell like in a soap.

Super Clean

While spicier scents appeal most to me, I knew I needed a few good 'green' scents to add to the mix. This one did not disappoint. It has a shockingly big presence in my candles. I mixed 5% of this with a 5% mix of Birch Wood and Amber Noir. It turned out to be a candle blend that fills the room hot or cold.

To me this one is ok. It's not bad...maybe just not my thing. It smells like when you pick a fresh weed or plant and snap the stem in half. Weird description, I know, but that's what I smell.

Green and clean

I love this fragrance and it is selling very well. Used at 9% in Para soy blend. It's very green with a hint of lemon

Love this one

One of my favorites along with Caribbean Teak wood. This one works amazing with lemongrass EO. After a week cure I get a really good throw.

Good

Smells very similar to green tea lemongrass, but a pleasant scent none the less

Love this soothing scent

This is an amazing, green, clean scent. It's calming, soothing and my manly husband even likes it- not girly at all. Used it at 6% in clear melt and pour soap and it was magic!

Another one of my favorites!! Wish it was stronger because it is magic, you will get transported in an exotic land in one breath!

Smells great

This has a fantastic scent- exactly what I think bamboo would smell like if real bamboo actually had much of a scent. If you've ever smelled the yellow base of a new shoot of grass, this is close. Fresh, sweet, green (but not super grassy). Nice. But- really weak. I use it in body butter and add it after my freezer phase, so it never has to withstand heat. I've only ever worked with one scent which was weaker. I'll be buying it again.

Nice!

Great fresh scent!

One of my best sellers

EVERYONE loves this scent! I can't keep it stocked!

Beautiful scent overall, not what I was expecting

Wonderful scent, though not much of a hot throw. A more appropriate name for this scent would be "Cool Honeydew"

Awesome!

IGI 4627 and IGI 4630
10% Fragrance
Very good hot throw.

Wish it was stronger

Only 4 stars because I wish it was stronger. I LOVE this fragrance and it is the perfect bamboo, not too much "cut grass" smell. Very subtle and soothing smell, just wish it was more potent.

Immediately one of my Faves!

Got it as a sample and I love it. I'm not big on floral scents and was surprised to hear someone refer to it that way. Very relaxing scent. Used in Paraffin 4627 Comfort Blend and has a nice hot throw.

Clean and Fresh

Bought the sample size, and it smelled "green" with a floral note at the end. Used in GB 464, and everyone that smelled it really liked it. Has a nice floral cold throw (don't know where the green scent went) but is not giving a strong hot throw. Seems good for a bathroom, or somewhere that doesn't require a lot of scent. Overall, fresh and pleasant.

Great scent

I really like this scent. Reminiscent of a clean bamboo forest.

Very nice!

This smells like a mix of honeydew and bamboo scent. Clean and a bit floral. I like it very much!

like it

I primarily make body products and room sprays with this. Nice clean fresh. almost like a real cucumber fresh smell. really like it and so do customers.

Nice smell, medium scent throw.

A refreshing and pleasant aroma and a good but not great scent throw.

Wish I could give it 6 stars

This one is simply amazing. It has the most beautiful scent. I did a festival this weekend and people went nuts over this one! I only had made a sample bottle..wish I had more.

yuck

smells like grass with a coffee after tone did not like at all

Lovely fragrance - one of my best sellers

Great fragrance, subtle yet very pleasing. Most customers that smell this one describe it as "lovely". Great cold and hot throw. Great for anyone that is interested in an aromotheraphy type of fragrance to their line.
