This is one of my favorite scents! I'd say it's more fruity than floral but the mix is so lovely. Clean and refreshing! Used in soy wax and it had a great cold and hot throw. So excited to introduce this to my customers!

We did not experience any acceleration or separation. The batter was easy to work with and was slow to come to trace. After 24 hours there was no discoloration, and the scent was mild. We did observe that the soap almost reached a full gel with minimal insulation. After the cure, there was no discoloration and the scent was pleasant and mild. This fragrance would be ideal for swirls or any technique where a light trace is best.
This is so refreshing to the senses. A great scent from beginning to end
Definitely worth every dollar!
I don't usually leave comments but after reading some of the comments I felt like I should give my experience with this fragrance. This is actually my third purchase of Love Spell, I absolutely love it. First I must add to me it doesn't smell exactly like VS version, in which I use all the time. However its very close and to me when using in my soaps it complements the actual vs fragrance. I also use as a diffuser, smell really clean with a hint of fragments. I also like that it is not the exact same because I can add my own twist to the smell and limit copy write issues.
I will continue to purchase,
Hope this helps!
I was very hesitant on writing this review. I really don’t like leaving bad reviews but I feel it will help other consumers and potentially the company. First off the cold throw is AMAZING! It smells just like the VS love spell. The hot throw is horrible! I make wax melts and let them cure for 3 weeks and tested it in a small room. I got nothing after the wax melt was completely melted. I thought hmmm maybe it’s because I used and electrical warmer. I tried it in my wax warmer and still nothing. I’m sooo disappointed because I offer this scent in car diffusers and my customers really wanted this in wax melts but there is no way I will be able to sell this to my customers knowing there is no good hot throw. It’s great for my car diffusers though!
I wanted to love this scent but it just smells like soap. I asked my clients to do a smell test and they also agree. None of my clients like this scent. I will be discontinuing this scent from my store.
I wasn't sure to buy this fragrance after reading all the negative comments but...
I tried a sample and it wasn't that bad. This fragrance works best in 444 soy wax with CD 18 in a straight sided tumbler jar 2.9" with 8% FO. Doesn't work with 464GBW although gives a fantastic CT.
So give it a try!
It smells just like the Victoria Secret scent! It doesn’t smell as strong as I expected it too when you burn it however.
One of my favorites!
I want to love this scent and cold throw is great. It’s subtle and a little sexy, but I cannot get a hot throw to save my life. I just had a customer order a large amount of this scent and I’m going to have to ask her to select a different scent. I can’t send it due to fear of losing a huge customer. What would be equivalent to this CS? I’ve tried CD 12 & 10 and eco 8, 10, & 12 with 464 and nothing works. Ive also tried 9% & 10%. 🤷🏻♀️

Worst smell I’ve bought so far
I think this is a wonderful scent. I think it grows on you!!!
this is similar to the love spell from Victoria secret. it takes me back to high school when it was so popular.
I am not a huge fan of the scent, but it is right on with the VS love spell and I have a few customers who say this is their favorite scent.
We purchased a few different fragrances to sample and this stood out more than the others.
I really like this scent, however, it is very sweet IMO. If you are looking for sweet, then great! If not, you may want to avoid.
This is my first time buying the clean Love spell scent and it smells kind of like soap to me.. It does not have a pleasant smell at all to me its completely different than the old version of love spell.
Not sure why others are saying no hot throw, the hot throw I get is almost too overpowering! lol I normally use eco 14 for my Libbey tumblers but this one needs an eco 12 with 464 wax. Perfect melt pool and perfect hot throw.
I have hesitated on leaving this review as I don't like to leave a negative comment. But I will admit, this Love Spell version has virtually no hot throw any more. I have had multiple customer complaints, along with negative reviews on my site based upon this scent. It is a top seller for me, but I will no longer be able to offer it. I use 464 and eco 10 wicks. Heat over 185, pour at 135. Cure for 2 weeks and tested at 8%, 9%, and 10%. In a smaller room (10 x 12) I could barely smell it. Nothing to what it used to be like. I already reached out to CS about this and they were extremely helpful on testing/making ideas but I just ran the new test over the weekend and there is still a weak hot throw. I hate to say it but I will not be reordering it again.
I’m not sure why other reviewers didn’t get a good hot throw. I’m just starting out and did a test candle in 8 oz tins and the smell is great! Hot throw was perfect (I heated to 185 and poured at 135 degrees). I did let it cure for over 10 days so maybe that helped. Haven’t burn tested my 9 oz candles yet but I’m sure it will be fine. Ordering more because it’s my favorite scent so far!
It’s such a relief to see that i wasn’t the only person having a problem with getting a hot throw scent . It’s absolutely amazing with CT , but when it’s lit you get nothing . I’ve switched containers and wicks and still no HT . Was going to change waxes until i seen so many saying the same thing .

I did everything I was supposed to do. The cold throw is amazing which had me excited about the performance of the candle. I waited a week before lighting and nothing.. absolutely nothing. I can barely smell a thing even in small rooms. You have to practically put your nose to the flames to smell it. I'm not happy about that, seems like a waist. Please Help.
I've been using Love Spell for a few years now and recently ordered a large fragrance bottle to make candles for February. While testing I couldn't smell any scent at all. I've never had issues with this fragrance in the past so I'm not sure what could be the issue. I followed all temperature recommendations for mix/pour for the type of wax I use. I also recently sold a candle to one of my customers and she also said it didn't smell. I'm so disappointed.
I'm new to soap making but this fragrance has been a big hit just from the description and once people use it they rave about it! I will keep this one in my lineup for sure.
I was worried this wouldn't give me a hot throw because of the reviews. but honestly- this was amazing and so strong that I will have to dial it down next batch.
for reference, I use IGI 6046 coconut/ paraffin wax, at the max 10% fragrance load (will be lessening to 8%). for the trial run, I used the "straight sided tumbler jar" here on candlescience (3.06" diameter) and wicked it with a "crackling booster Wick .03" (width: .75" height: 3") from The Wooden Wick co. for the future, I will probably wick it without the booster because with this vessel size, it didn't need the extra heat.
I added fragrance at 185, I let it cool to 175 for pour, then let it cure for 5 days. again- scent was exactly what i wanted, but way too strong and had to blow it out.
I hope this helps someone who was struggling to get a hot throw.
For anyone who is in odds over purchasing this do to the reviews as I was....
I ordered a small 4 oz bottle in fear it would come and not be vs’ LOVE SPELL’
IT IS SPOT ON BUY FREELY!
I just came back the next day after receiving, and processing my wax to buy the larger bottle.... I should have trusted my gut feeling knowing after all this time purchasing from candle science that they would be spot on. Thank you! My entire house smell like love spell!
I used this fragrance for wax melts and unfortunately there’s absolutely no scent. I was hoping to sell for Valentine’s Day. Disappointed.

JUST LIKE I THOUGHT IT WOULD PERFECT :)
This is a seriously disappointing dupe - I've gotten it from other suppliers where it really captures that fruity note, I find CS's version overly perfumey both OOB and in products. Big bummer because I was hoping for it to be a Valentine's spotlight.
Smells exactly like victoria's secret love spell.I love it & so does my customers.
The cold throw is amazing but once it’s lit you can’t smell anything.
Cold throw is crazy strong. Hot throw is overbearing. I'm not sure about these people saying they can't smell the hot throw.
This scent is a little much and not really a fan. The scent is a 3/5 for me. You want a rose smell to be a bit suttle. When it's overbearing, it gives that feeling of smelling fake roses.
Smells just like BBW Love Spell, I recommend if making a candle add a little more FO than normal
The hot throw is amazing! Very happy with this scent.
This one is always easy to work with in bath and body products, and a favorite of all of my customers.
This scent is very popular and customers state it smells exactly as expected. I use 464 wax, had to lighten my Lavender dye amount and wick up to a cd20 in a Libby jar. I use 8% fragrance and the scent fills my main level.
Love the smell...but when I burn the candle I cannot smell the product. I have tried 6%, 10%, and 12% and I still cannot get a scent. please help.
Thank you for allowing us to help with this!
Customers really like this fragrance, it is an easy sell.
Tried this fragrance from another brand it was horrible!, notes where all over the place, yuck. I must say this one, from candle science, smells 100% like the name brand.!
I, for the life of me, can NOT get a HT from this fragrance. Mixing for 2 minutes at 185 at 10% and using the suggested wicks. I LOVE the CT but I can not get a HT. It has a high FP it shouldn’t be burning off. My customer who I use for sample long love it before they light it (these customers only get samples at no cost until I get it right btw) . I don’t know what I’m doing wrong.
Love this scent in my 464 Soy Wax candle!
Customers (and myself included) absolutely LOVEEEE this in candles or wax melts! I cannot keep it in stock! The HT & CT are both crazy crazy strong. I use 444 Soy Wax with a 10% fragrance load and it’s very very strong!
This scent is really beautiful, it’s completely a girlie girl scent! My female customers tell me it smells like Victoria’s Secret. I use this scent in my Aroma Ornaments, tarts & candles & it’s in the top 10 of our sales. A really long lasting scent, not overwhelming at all. Thank you CandleScience for another wonderful scent!
So I was super excited to make my candles with this one due to how popular it was, unpacked it and was baffled, there was little to NO smell! I waited a few days and tried sniffing again, SAME THING! I let 5 different family members smell it, they all said they can hardly smell it. Smelled some coffee beans - all of us - and tried again...same thing. I don't get it. Is it watered down?? Help! I bought this 4oz bottle and I'm regretting it :(
Identical to the VS perfume. Wonderful scent!
This scent is very similar like the Victoria Secret body splash. Is my first body splash my mom bought me when I was 13. Smells lovely.
I purchased this scent very excited to use it! Cold throw amazing. Hot throw I couldn’t smell absolutely NOTHING! I burned it with a cotton wick and realize I need to wick down. I then burned it with my wooden wick (perfect size) still smelled nothing! I mean nothing. I am now going to try it on my candle warmer. Help!
Hi! We're happy to have helped you troubleshoot!
Love the fragrance. It has quickly become one of my Super Five.
The fragrance is pretty strong, and I use 7% in my soy wax candles. In MP soaps, I use 3% which gives just the right scent. I have yet to use in CP Soaps. But since CP loses about half it's fragrance load after curing, I suspect I will need to use 5%. I most certainly recommend this fragrance and I will try to remember to follow up in July on how it worked out.
THE FRAGRANCE SMELLS EXACTLY LIKE VS LOVE SPELL, I'VE TRIED MIXING THESES 10 DIFFERENT TIMES AND THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO SMELL.!!
If I could give zero stars I would. I am pretty upset that I just bought a 16oz bottle and I do NOT smell anything. Not even a small hint of what was described. Are these bottles hand mixed before they are shipped out? Something is wrong. This is crazy.
Hi there! We would love to help you improve your fragrance throw. We've reached out via email to better assist you!
I was really excited about this scent and I will say it smells exactly like Love Spell by VS. But, I used 6% FO and I couldn’t smell anything even in the faintest bit, not even in a small bathroom.
Had to buy a big bottle of this scent since so many customers were asking for it. Love the way it smells, exactly like the perfume/lotion!! Always get a good CT and HT with 444.
Cannot keep in stock
Rapidly becoming one of my top best sellers. I currently use in Candles, Soaps, Bath Salts, Bath Fizzes and Shower Steamers. I have been asked if I will be making lotions with this. Not sure if I want to go down the lotion road, since there is water, and the need for preservatives, but I am considering adding a body butter, which is a much more stable product, to my line and will most certainly be available in this fragrance.
I absolutely love this scent. I poured some in a wax melter and my whole house smelled amazing. Third time purchasing.
Really, really nice FO! Nice CT and HT throw in my 464.
My customers associate this fragrance with VS Love Spell and they like it, I personally i hate it, sorry but makes me gag!
Love this Scent. My customer request it all year. It has a sweet but floral scent. Great hot and cold.
Really enjoyed this smell- smells exactly like love spell from VS
This fragrance is a Spot on dupe of the Love Spell fragrance from Victoria’s Secret. It has a lighter hot throw In 464 soy wax than I’d like but it behaves beautifully in cold process soap.
The scent is amazing! But it got lost in my candles. I love a candle that is very strongly scented. This scent is very weak.
I use this in my 464 Soy wax for candles and my customers and I both LOVE this scent, sells out every time I make a batch! It smells just like VS. Definitely a keeper!
Question though...is Love Spell copywritten?? I named my candles the same and I just got a concerned costumer that I may get sued for using the name.
This blends very well with the soy I use! Has a great hot and cold throw. It also smells JUST like love spell from v.s
This was one of my FAVORITE scents from Victoria's Secret, so when I read that this was basically a fragrance dupe for it I was curious but skeptical. To me this is 100% the exact scent. It doesn't have a super strong "perfume-y" scent so I don't get a headache from smelling it, but it also isn't too subtle.
The first candles I ever made were with this fragrance (464 soy wax). The cold throw on this is impressive, but I had to be patient to get a good hot throw. I cured one for 3 days/1 week/2 weeks and the 2 week hot throw blew the rest out of the water. I'm not selling yet until I perfect my technique but I've already purchased a larger bottle of this because I want to make more candles for personal use.
I tried another popular fragrance oil retailer and I was so disappointed, definitely going to be coming back to CandleScience every time!
This has a good smell in my candles have not tried To burn them yet!
This is one of my FAVORITE / Best sellers!!
I would recommend doing 2oz of fragrance for an 8oz candle!
Just reordered this! 💝
I love, love, love this fragrance. I have ordered several fragrances, but this one has me hypnotized and stuck on it. It seems to have a hint of licorice or something similar. My husband loves it even my grandson. I put it in a diffuser in his room and he came running to me saying, "MumMum" my room". I said, "What about your room, I cleaned it"? He said, "Oh no the smell, it smells so good in there". I also used it in our car. I put it in some little hanging thingy. When my husband drove by me with his windows down I could smell it, oh it smelled so good, I think I have a winner and will be ordering more in a bigger size!
Beautiful fragrance, our best seller
This was a huge let down it didn't really smell like anything out of the bottle and when I used it in body products the scent was completely lost I wouldn't try this in candles either
The name of this scent couldn't be more true! It smells just like Love Spell from VS! I use soy wax and always get amazing cold and hot throws!
Purchased a 1oz sample for use in soy candles based upon some of the reviews. This is definitely not an appealing candle scent to me, BUT I believe it would smell great in a bath bomb or heavenly in scented lotion (depending upon the fragrance load). Moving forward, I’m thinking of only making Love Spell candles again if they’re requested. This scent gets a two star rating from my sniffer, that’s one star from each nostril.
Customers were quick to associate it with VS Love Spell and because of that they seem to like it. Personally, It's not mu cup of tea but as long as it sells what do I have to complain about? Nothing! For that you get 4 stars!
I am absolutely In Love with this fragrance oil! I've never smelled Love Spell before, however during the 99 cent sale I thought I'd give this a try, and I am so glad that I did. I initially made a room spray with it, and loved it so much I then made a body spray. Now I have to order a much larger bottle shop that I can make more product's with this fragrance. I just want to bathe in it!!!
If you like VS lotion, Love Spell, you'll love this! I use this in parasoy wax, wax tarts and sugar scrub and it's a HUGE hit with my clients. Absolutely LOVE this scent!!
Funny, my customers seem to like it, but for me, yuck! It’s an acrid sort of fragrance. I keep it for Valentine’s Day but definitely not my favorite.
Good scent, will work with pink. Feminine, works well with soy.
Perfect love spell scent!!! One of my favorites.
This was used in my coconut and soy wax candles. I used ribbon wicks. It's great with both cold and hot throw. I used it in cold process soap, and it stayed true and strong at 1oz ppo. It didn't discolor my soap. I did color my soap with micas. I don't remember any acceleration or ricing. I don't know what the original smells like, but this is great. It's not what I usually like in a fragrance, but my customers love it.
This oil is amazing! Wonderful strong throw in soy candles and melts and very true to its' name. Powerhouse in my shop! :)
This scent is soooooo strong. I added a dash of lavender to try and make it more soothing, but I ended up getting rid of the candle I made. It was so strong, you could smell it with the lid on. Makes me sneeze a lot. However, everyone has a different taste in scents.
Used this in soap, and it smells amazing! Very strong classy scent. Can't wait to try this in wax tarts! Thank you CandleScience for all of your wonderful fragrances!
Great scent! Great hot throw
I love this Love Spell dupe, I smell better then VS. I made soap and lotion bars.
I have used this for candles, bubble bars soaps and bath bombs and the scent is strong and true to it's name! ♥
I used this scent in a diffuser with 25% fragrance and 50% diffuser vase and my bathroom is apayment sized bathroom very small!!! I only smell it if I keep bathroom door closed! And then the Scent is very faint!!! Love Spell is good for candles only!
