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.

My customers ABSOLUTELY LOVE this scent...and I'm so very sad that it's being discontinued. This lavender fragrance has such a pleasing and calming nuance to it, and my customers order it in numbers, especially my male customers (!!).

Candle Science, please reconsider keeping it around...This is the second Lavender fragrance you've cancelled in the last several years that were customer faves (ahem...Lavender Cucumber Sage). I've recreated my own version of that one, but the new lavender scents just aren't as nice. xo

Give teas a chance :D

I totally can see how out-of-the-bottle some people were getting moth balls and grandma perfume vibes, but I gave this one a chance and if you let it cure for about 2 days, it really gives a nice lavender bergamot chamomile scent profile. Worth a try for anyone who is going for an apothecary/calming spa thing!

A Strong Tea/Medicinal Scent, but where's the Lavender?

So first off, I don't entirely hate the fragrance, I love seeing fragrance companies try new and adventurous things. So before I tear into this one a little, I'll talk about the good things first.

On the positive side, it's interesting. I don't smell the lavender, but it does have a green or black tea scent mixed with that medicinal/astringent scent that I found all too familiar. It creates a very interesting aroma that, at least in my experience, evoked an interesting cocktail of emotions that I could see working if mixed with the right thing or with someone who's comforted by that scent.

On the negative side, I didn't find the fragrance appealing as it reminded me of a few things I'd very much like to forget. It smelled somewhat like a retirement home, and should you be in the market for the smell of the true retirement home experience, all you'd need to do is add a dash of fart spray, just enough to be noticeable but just a little where it smells like they're poorly covering it up. For anyone out there, you can have that idea for free, maybe for a gag candle or something. :)

So, I guess in summary, it's an interesting choice for fragrance. I can see where this fragrance would appeal to some and be undesirable to others. If someone were to ask me whether it's good or not or whether or not they'd like it, I could only really say "it really depends..."

How are there bad reviews???

This scent is fantastic on it's own, but blended... it's splendid! To the folks leaving bad reviews, I recommend blending with some other fragrance oils to make a unique scent. Please CandleScience, never ever get rid of this one!!!

Lovely apothecary aromas

Smells give me visuals and this one makes me imagine walking through an old apothecary shop, a small bubbling cauldron and a cuppa tea freshly steeped. I enjoy this one very much.

Worst scent to date

I love almost all of CS scents but this one really threw me off. Smells fishy in my opinion. I haven’t wanted to waste my wax trying it out.

Honestly... yuck

This scent was not for me, y'all, to the point where I didn't even make a candle from it for fear of wasting precious wax. The lavender doesn't come through but what does is a mix of seltzer water and grandma perfume. Has a lovely name to it but was not for me.

Rollercoaster of Impressions

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.

Pleasently Surprised!

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.
