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.


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.

Gorgeous Fragrance

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!
