I hope all of the other reviews that express frustration and disappointment will convince CS to bring this FO back! The replacement suggestion is nowhere close to this. I have also had to discontinue a customer-favorite scent. It’s aggravating when you spend so much time working out the right FO mix ratio, do all your test burns, make scent specific labels, and market a product—only to have it discontinued w/o an exact replacement. Cassia & Amber was another one CS suddenly discontinued, and I still can’t find a replacement. It’s hard to run a small business and create brand/scent loyalty when our custom blend ingredients are discontinued.
5 stars are for the scent



Will a new improved or similar scent be available soon? My customers love this scent!

Please Bring It Back!!!!

I can’t believe you are discontinuing this fragrance. It’s one of my top sellers. This is a bad move.
First you discontinued my top seller, “Sweet Pea”,so I turned my customers to this scent to keep them. Now you got rid of this. BAD,BAD,BAD move. Please bring them both back!!


Candle maker/soap maker/business owner

I’m so extremely disappointed with the decision to discontinue this beautiful scent. It has always been a great seller in all of my products. The scent throw in my candles is amazing, and the blends I created with this...I am so disappointed. No, the replacement is nothing like it, it doesn’t smell the same, and my customers do not like it, not to mention...the custom blends I created with it, I not have to discontinue, and they are all great sellers every week. Not a good move to discontinue. Grr


My customers loved this scent

I hate to see this scent go, it was a very surprising seller for me in CP soap. All it took was 1 lady buying one bar, with each event she would buy more and more with each event I attended. I recently offered her you "replacement" Hibiscus Palm. She turned it down saying the two smell very different. I have to agree. This scent had a powdery-floral scent to it that was not overpowering and was super feminine. It was a great scent for summer and spring alike.
This discontinuation upsets me from a business stand point, as I will lose the guaranteed sales from this scent.



Very sad this is discontinued was making it part of my summer line!

Fine treasures boutique


This scent was amazing and a best seller for us. Extremely disappointed that it was discontinued. More than likely we will have to find a fragrance house to match this scent so we can still continue to offer it to our customers.


I am so sad

I am really sad to hear that this scent is being discontinued. My main reason for coming here tonight was to buy a larger bottle. I will try hibiscus palm, but I doubt it will smell as luscious as Island hibiscus....

Clean, refreshing

This scent is very clean smelling. I really enjoy the more "natural " scents in my line. So this one kinda fits. I wI'll buy it again if it sells!

Wild wic candles

Omg! I absolutely love this. My customers love it too! It is a heavy floral fragrance, but with my line, it works well, as I am all about the flowers and plants and involve that in most all my products. You will not be disappointed if you love flower based scents. I used in soap, body butter and going to do a candle too. :) love love


I can't get enough

This fragrance is FANTASTIC. I only bought a sampler bottle and plan on getting a much larger size. Does well in MP soap, lotions, and bath bombs.

LOVE this scent!! Wonderful hot throw!


creative director

I love this scent very much,,,even had few men really consumed by it and purchased....However, It is not throwing hardly any hot throw??? Mixing at 185 pouring at 135 with 1.5 oz to 1 lb of 464 wax..... Any suggestions to give it more hot throw bc I am really wanting to keep this scent in our line...


Strong scent

I like the scent once I got it smelled how strong it was I determined that I would only use it to make air freshener, linen spray, toilet bombs n car sprays but all in all good scent


Best seller

I don't know where all the old lady perfume comments are coming from, but this is a best seller for me. I use it in cold process soap and bath salts, and have already gone through a 1 oz trial and a 16 oz bottle. It is a big hit with the females in the younger crows, under 25, so the old lady perfume does not bother them. LOL. It is my favorite fragrance of all.


Agree, Perfumey! Not In A Good Way

I went ahead and tried this despite the negative reviews because I am looking for more floral blends, and it was a disappointment. Smelled fine in the bottle but the hot and cold throw is very unappealing to me. It may be the gardenia (which I love fresh, but can tend to smell powdery or "old lady"-ish) combined with the musk. There are better florals on CS. Opt for those!


This scent is one of my best sellers! Like, 1st or 2nd best. My customers can't get enough of it.

Too Strong

This scent was very disappointing. At first I thought I might be ok with it, but each time I smelled it I felt more and more consumed by old lady perfume, or some sharp, tangy cologne. Just something way too strong, weird and unpleasant. Family members agreed it was bad. Some friends said they liked it. While there's a chance they were just being polite, scents are so personal and maybe they really did like it, although not enough to take home.


Amazing !!! Do not know what the person that wrote smells like an old lady came from. What does an old lady smell like. My mom is 75. She smell awesome !!


Island Hibiscus

Didn't care for this scent, it has a strong hot throw that smells like old lady perfume.

Angela Pimentel


This is one of my favorites and one of my best sellers too!! I use it in GB464 and it has one of the best hot throws. You will not be disappointed!


I love this scent!!! A keeper for my summer scents. Not as strong as I would prefer, but my customers love it. If you can make it a bit stronger it would get that 5th star.
Thanks CS for having the best FO's around.


wonderful scent

Used this at 5% in CP soap, no discoloration, slight acceleration but still workable. Scent sticks beautifully!

Island Hibiscus

All I can say is this scent is AWESOME!!! It actually surpassed my favorite scent!! Wow!! So glad I tried it when you have the special of 1oz scents.


Love the FO but hot throw not strong enough.

I realllly love the smell of the FO but I wish the hot throw was a little stronger. The 8 oz candle I made with this at 10% FO made my bedroom smell good but it was a very light smell. The scent itself is great if you don't like super strong candles. Very fresh and floral. I use 464 wax & 10% FO.


Smells perfume-y

Maybe I just don't know what hibiscus is supposed to smell like, but I liked the description of this fragrance and the other positive review. However, I found the scent to be reminiscent of and old lady's perfume. I would consider using this in soap, but I know I won't use it in a candle.

This was so different than what I expected! It reminds me of Givenchy's Amarige! Its a warm, rich floral, just beautiful. It reminds me of Paris, love!
