OOB, both my husband and I immediately hated this one. As soon as we added it to the beeswax for our candles, it improved. As it cures, even a day later, it will continue to get better. I read reviews saying similar things but we were afraid we made a bad purchase with this. This is definitely a long game fragrance that needs time to come into its full scent profile.

We did not experience any acceleration or separation. We brought the batter to a light to medium trace and it poured very smoothly into the mold. After 24 hours the soap was still very soft and ideally, we would have allowed another day or two before unmolding. There was no sign of discoloration or of the soap going through the gel phase. The fragrance was strong and the tea notes really popped. After 30 days there was no discoloration but all 4 edges of the soap had a thick layer of soda ash. The scent remained strong and true. This would be an excellent choice for an intricate swirl design that requires an emulsion or light trace.
I got this one as a sample, because I was uncertain of it due to so many conflicting reviews. However, I was pleasantly surprised by how they nailed the tea and tonic scent and the light musk of french lavender brought it all home for me. I absolutely adore this scent. I used it in GB 464 wax at 10% FO and it came out perfectly. Highly recommend, if you're unsure because of all the other conflicting reviews as I once was, get a sample first.
I’m not a big fan of it and I would like to exchange for a different scent please.

I got this one as a free sample and thought to try it out and let me tell you how amazing, relaxing, and soothing this scent is once it cures. has a great cold throw It's been 5 days since I made two 6oz candles, and can't wait to light them up, you won't regret this one!!
I have enjoyed every scent I have received with the exception of this one. It’s absolutely gross. Wondering if I can exchange it for a different scent?

I did not like this scent straight out of the bottle. I decided to try the sample-sized bottle anyway. I still wasn't thrilled right after mixing with wax and letting the candle sit overnight. I set the test candle on a shelf and didn't sniff it again for about a month. Over that time, the scent transformed into a lovely botanical smell. It's a soft, spa-like botanical scent; not too strong. As someone who doesn't usually go for florals but wanted something for that customer segment, I still enjoy this scent as a calming and fresh fragrance. I found it needs an 8% fragrance load. I also mixed this with extra lavender oil to up the lavender effect and loved those results. Not everyone loves this, but I've found that my customers who prefer botanicals to bakery scents have appreciated this scent.
This FO isn't bad at all. It smells exactly like lavender. However, at least to my nose, all I smell is lavender. It leaves a little to be desired based on the description, but I was out of lavender FO anyway so it worked out. I mixed this FO with the Rosemary Sage for a candle and it's easily my favorite scent now. Turned out great.
I love it. It's clean and calming. After my tester I ordered 16oz
This had hardly NO smell at all. Total waste, will not buy again.
Received this as my chosen sample with an order & was not disappointed... In fact, it made me wish I had ordered a bigger bottle! This lovely scent is predominately lavender (very authentic!), but there's just a little something more going on in the blend that makes it wonderfully intriguing & unique... The best way I can describe it is: Lavender, uplifted! That probably makes zero sense to readers, but when you smell it, you'll hopefully know what I mean lol! I'm kind of kicking myself for just stocking up on a few different lavender FO's elsewhere because had I smelled this one prior, it would have been my first choice. I'm a minimalist when it comes to buying/storing FO's (Or at least TRY to be!), but when I get through my current supply, I have every intention of coming back for more of this! It's a fantastic lavender scent & I'm so grateful for the sample!
If you like komboucha, this is the scent for you; it smells a little sour, almost fermented. I was not a fan.
This is one top seller candle. the second burn to me is the best !!!!
I wasn't impressed with this one at first but after making a tester batch of candles, soap and lotion and testing them at home, I can't get enough. My customers love it too. This is a perfect addition for an upscale candle or spa line.
Definitely did not like this scent. I smell more tea than I do lavender. I guess that's what it's going for but when I made my candle with it, the scent was very faint even though I used the recommended percentage. I even tried different percentages and nothing seemed to bring out a good HT. A miss for me for sure.
This fragrance is a huge hit with friends who have been to our home on the same day that I made the first small batch of LTT. Each person who smelt the fragrance in our home said it reminded them of either a family member, parma violet sweets (a memory of my own childhood) or being in a relaxing spa room. The throw is good; it's more subtle when it is cold. Used it in 4oz tins so far - yet to do a burn test. So far this is going to be our staple lavender fragrance for the Pendle Wick Co. - it smells even better than my husbands favorite Lemon Lavender candles he got from Yankee.
This scent smells SOOO good and I've been selling a lot of candles with it. It has a lovely mellow soapy scent that is calming and delicious.
This smalls so wonderful and mixes really well in my wax. Soothing with a zing, adding this to my line fore sure!
Ohhh this scent is awful. Even my husband (who never comments on anything, good or bad) said this one is terrible. It smells like Mr. Bubble bubble bath from my childhood, except with a rancid undertone. Thankful I only got the 1oz sample size.
I'm not sure how to describe this. The light musk, cucumber & honeydew melon come through, but I can't really say the effect is pleasing. To me, it smelled like baby wipes ... to my husband it reminded him of the bubbles you smell at a carwash. However, each nose is different, & what I don't like others do, so I'm hoping the few I made will sell.
I was disappointed with this one.. it smells like cologne out of the bottle and not in a good way.
This is a really lovely true lavender smell, but as the tea would suggest, it's light. To me, it smells like you are really sniffing a cup of green tea (not to be confused with how a tea candle oil smells) infused with lavender. It's not the sick old lady soap lavender. It smells like the real deal. It is light and aqueous, and I really like it. I kind of wish CS would do it with other flowers, like rose. I would have given it five stars if it threw a little harder.
