Our hydrangeas don't have any scent, so I wasn't sure what to expect from this one. It's nice: a very nice light floral that is in the same vein as lily of the valley. I find it sweetly innocent and pretty, but not earth shattering. There is a hint of greeness that suggests the rest of the plant, and I like that, to lift it out of Little Girl territory, but it's going to be best used in garden candles and things of that nature. Maybe mixed with a tomato leaf scent...that would be outstanding! I do like it, just not sure I'll use it much.


Great floral scent, but not great for cold process soap

If you like the scent of hydrangea, this is for you. I am personally a big fan of this scent. However, I tried using it in cold process soap and it seized immediately. I was able to get it into my mold, but I don't have high hopes for taking it out of the mold. I do love the scent though.


Melting Moon Candles

SPOT on with this one! A customer requested this scent and after trying this one out,I am planning to add this to my line this summer. Using in 464


Hydrangea fragrance

This fragrance smells amazing! But does not work in cold process soap!!! As soon as I added it to a very light trace it seized up. I was able to get it into the mold. But the next day I had a lake of fragrance oil that had seeped out to the top. The whole thing was a disaster. Thank goodness for hot process.


Not a fan

I personally am not a fan of this fragrance. Got it because of the great reviews, was kind of disappointed. The smell reminds me of air freshener. No one likes it either. Luckily I got a sample size


Gorgeous fragrance!

Used in soy candles with GW 464, turned out beautifully. Great CW and HT. Fills my house uo with a lovely fragrance!


Very floral. A good scent if you're into that kind of thing

Very floral, but not in a bad way. It was too floral for my liking to use alone, but it worked nicely being blended with other scents.
I'd give it another go.


This scent does well for me. And it smells pretty true-to-life.

The Burning Mitten

Wasn't sure at first sniff....

When I first took a whiff in the bottle, it smelled a bit like cleaner you might use in a public restroom. But - once in the candle & burning, it's a nice, fresh, not overly floral fragrance. So far one of my favorites -but I'm just getting started.


Beautiful but beware

Beautiful fragrance in soy wax candles - a favorite among my customers. BUT, don't use in CP soap. I used a tried and true CP recipe and this fragrance caused the batch to seize immediately to almost solid. I couldn't get it into the mold in time to salvage even some lumpy bars. It instantly stuck in the pot.


Great, strong scented oil

I just got this today and was pleasantly surprised at the wonderful floral scent. I agree that they are spot on with the smell of hydrangeas.

Luanna Q

Must Have For The Flower Lover

Very wonderful. Has a light flowery smell and is almost dead on for a hydrangea.


Very Strong & Pleasant

I am not a flower fan, but I have many customers that are. I tried this oil and was extremely surprised at how strong it was, but not overpowering. I even liked this one myself.



What a lovely, delicate floral! Not too heady, but just right. Perfect for an upcoming Spring line. Color options are endless. Hydrangeas are gorgeous and smell wonderful.
