I was expecting this to smell like BBW's take on Japanese Cherry Blossom, but it smells a lot less... I think perfumy? I can't put my finger on it.... It smells more flowery and natural compared to BBW's. I used this for my spring line, considering DC is right down the road from me, and it sold like hot cakes. I personally was not huge on the scent OOB and the CT of it simply because I was never big on BBW's take. Eventually, I kept a cherry blossom for myself expecting to not like it to much, but once I lit it, I ended up LOVING it. The HT is definitely sweeter, stronger, and better than the CT in my opinion. I'm definitely going to keep this in my spring collection for years to come.

We experienced slight acceleration, but no separation occurred. Once brought to a medium trace the soap thickened quick. After 24 hours we compared the soap to our unscented bar and noticed a minimal discoloration. The scent was very strong. After curing, there was no discoloration, and a strong scent remained. A single color or layers would be ideal for this fragrance.
Smells alright, but... Smells much more like a rose. I believe a more cherry scent is needed an a little less rose scent.
I am so excited to stumble upon this scent which was right under my nose for years. I had been using another vendor's version, which I didn't really like b/c it was too powdery & smothering, and it wasn't a great seller, but was waiting to use it up until I bought more. I finally bought a lb of your oil, and LOVE IT! it will be a permanent part of my line, and probably all year. I will be sure to have it on hand at all times. I have had customers calling and coming back to purchase again and again. Just today, a man traveled from 4 towns away to buy 3 more candles b/c he loved the scent so much, & was afraid I would run out of them. I have used it in candles, melts and soaps, and all are great sellers. I had plenty of time for an in the pot swirl, with lots of colors, and there was no ricing or accelerating, or any other issues at all. The cold and hot throw in candles/melts are EXCELLENT! I will try it in some other products soon. This has become one of my new favorites. Please don't stop making this scent. I am so glad I finally tried it. And I finally found a Japanese Cherry Blossom oil that I love.

To each their own. Did not like the scent. It's not a bad scent but just not my favourite.
OMG: smells so good. Everyone who'd visit my house asked me what was the amazing scent they were smelling. Well of course I did tell they, but I did say was, it's an oil I'd ordered off line and they told me they loved it and yes I will be ordering more. Thanks CandleScience, you're the best💜🤗🙏🙏🙏🙏
Its not a sweet scent at all, nothing compared to BBW scent. Im not a fan
This is by far my favorite scent! It is light and fresh and just plain beautiful!
I love this scent I will be purchasing more fragrant scents soon
I've found that cherry blossom fragrance oils are always a lighter floral than most other floral fragrances, that being said I find Candle Science's Cherry Blossom has more depth and complexity than any other cherry blossom FO I've purchased.
I'd recommend combining this with another cherry blossom scent for a full-bodied scent!
I did not care for the scent when I first smelled it in the bottle. Decided to make a small batch of soap with it anyways. I turned out to be such an amazing and unique scent that I am back to buy more. There were no issues with the fragrance causing my soap to accelerate or rice and the scent has stayed strong through the currying process.
I personally love this fragrance! I think it is sweet and truthfully despite what others say is a decently strong scent.
This is a weak scent, could barely smell it at all. I will never buy it again.
This has to be one of the best JCB fragrances I've ever used. My candles, melts & soaps smell fresh with a just a hint of cherry. To be quite honest I've never liked Japanese cherry blossom in any form as it's always been too perfumey. Not in this case.
This is great! My favorite cherry blossom FO that I have tried. They tend to be on the lighter side and this one has a nice, strong hot and cold throw in GB 464. I love it!
not a nice smell i used it for making candles with the GB 444 and it was a not pleasant and it turned a different color.
Not a great scent to begin with but when I put it in a candle and burned it I couldn’t smell it at all.
Made wax brittle tarts unable to smell in or out the bottle. I personally, think it need to be reformulated.
I used this FO in soap and it’s great! It’s strong a wee bit perfumes so you can use a smaller amount and uts Devine! Will try in candles next. It’s. Best seller !
Smells great but the hot throw is VERY faint. I used 1lb of 464 and 1oz of fragrance oil.
Great scent straight out the bottle. It is fragrant and floral and has a clean smell that would be great for bodywash. My only issue with it is that the hot throw is not as strong as a same use percentage of my other candles. It is faint and can be difficult to detect unless in a small room. This is still a fantastic fragrance and I will likely experiment with adding a hire amount per batch to compensate.
I was excited for this scent, however, it is not strong enough (very faint subtle smell) to sell in my spring craft fair as I was hoping. I will try it in my baby powder mixture and see if it will be sellable for baby shower gifts.
i’m really excited to add this to my Spring/ Summer 2018 soap line. However, this sent rices pretty quickly, so there will be no fancy swirls with this one. Because I’ve been making cold process soap for over 15 years, I am familiar with accelerating and racing in Florissant so I was prepared and did a solid pink color so the batch was completely salvageable . Had I tried something fancier, I would’ve ended up with soap – on – a – stick!
Japanese cherry blossom is now my favorite scent!!! I love it
I expected something that resembled BBW version but that's not what this is. More like a nice/clean shampoo.
A nice, floral scent. Straight up, it's a little perfume-y for my taste, but I mixed it with rain water and got a nice scent.
