This smells a lot like Capri Blue's 'Blue Jeans', to me. I really like it and don't get the medicinal or nail polish remover scent. Wonder if there was an 'off' batch? I'm ordering again and hoping it is just as good as the first bottle.

Cold Process Soap Performance
Lye Water temperature 120ºF
Oil temperature 120ºF
We experienced moderate acceleration but no separation. The batter came to trace quick and turned grainy. We did observe almost a full gel with minimal insulation. There was no discoloration and maintained a strong scent. After the cure the texture of the soap was smooth. This would be ideal as a single color or a simple layer design.
This smells medicinal to me, not at all what I was expecting from it. Looking for advice or suggestions to mix with this one.

I was making a wholesale order and my customer ordered this scent. I have never smelled it but it smells like nail polish remover. CS, you take away amazing smells like strawberry shortcake but keep nail polish remover...
Smells like nail polish remover but my customers love it.
This scent performs well in Soy (464) and Coco Apricot. Love the smell. Great CT and HT.
Strong CT and HT in 464. Customers love it. Highly recommend
this is one of my top 3 fav scents from this company, HT and CT awesome. nice clean all year round home scent, using soy also.
In the bottle, it smells vaguely of ozone and not much else. Chemicalish. I was thinking I could use it as an ozone note, which is really really hard to find, but it gets more chemical when used more heavily, sometimes smelling like laundry on the line with a detergent waft, and sometimes smelling like car exhaust. I'm still toying with it, but so far, it's been difficult to work with. It does smell more like laundry on the line than most linen/cotton floral citrus blends, but the chemical notes are strong.
Out of the bottle it is a little off putting. I use 464 Soy Wax and alone I am not a fan; something is missing to make this a Lush Linen scent. I played around using it as a blender to try and freshen this scent up. After several attempts I found it blends real nice with Candlescience's Lavender FO, not too much to make it smell like lavender, but just enough to soften this scent up. I feel it is that missing scent to make this Lush Linen; Lushes.
I've purchased so many scents from here and I hate that I wasted my money on nail polish remover. It's this a joke? What happened. I can't possibly use this.
I thought I would love this one based on reviews but it is not for me. To me, it smells almost medicinal. I think this is one that different people get a different smell from it. I asked my friends and family to smell a wax melt of this and give their honest opinion. Most people got the medicine smell while a few did get a nice clean linen smell. It's definitely not for me. I'm trying to think of some other fragrances oils I could blend this with to tone it down some. Any advice?
Hi there! We have reached out to you via email to offer a few blending suggestions!
I wanted to love it but I don't get "linen" from this, I got something else, and yes it does similar to polish remover. I hate to admit that but something was off with this, I did however mix it with White Birch and it smells better blended with another fragrance.
I got this because I love the smells of both lemon and lily of the valley. The 1oz that I received smells like nail polish remover. Hmmmm......
Love this scent, it wasn't exactly what I expected but it definitely grew on me. It's very soft and warm and slightly floral and works very well mixed. One of my favorite combos is this one mixed with a woodsy scent (fraser fir, frosted juniper, white birch etc). Great scent!
This scent has become one of my best selling candle.
This smells like a high end spa, I soaped with it and it soaps beautifully and the scent sticks after cure for a long time, I kept a few bars for me. I sold out and am back for more!
I really wanted to love this. However, it smells like acetone or nail polish remover.
I purchased this by mistake. I am happy to have done so though as this is a fantastic fragrance.
This smells expensive. It smells like a luxurious perfume or spa. It soaps beautiful in cold process soap, I’ve bought this multiple times. My customers say it smells expensive!
OOB this smells floral and fresh however, in candle form, it just didn't do much for me. I almost feel like it lost the floral scent and retained a more powdery scent instead, but not one that was fresh. I only tried a sample of it. If you're going for that fresh clean scent, I liked Fresh Linen Odor Eliminator better. However, all noses are different, so what one might not like, the next in line (6' away, of course), might love it.
OTB it smells strong to me, but when I mix it in with my candle it smells soft and elegant. Definitely one if my favorite scents.
I end up buying a 16 ounce of lush linen and had to throw most of it away. I was embarrassed to give this to my customers. This fragrance literally makes me want to vomit. I can not take the smell. I looked at the reviews prior and I don't understand how anyone thinks this smells good. Smells like acetone and a nail shop.
This is one of my all time favorites! I always describe it as an upscale hotel linen fragrance! It’s fresh and elegant at the same time! This is a must in our line! Sells like crazy! 💜💜💜
I was surprised by this one! Lush Linen truly smells like the name describes. It does beautiful with the 464 soy wax, has a great cold throw. I have never bought any candle that had the "linen" smell as it always comes out too powdery, smelling too much like detergent or not pleasing. The CandleScience version breaks the mold, and has a beautiful, clean sweetness that everyone loves! I will definitely be ordering again!
I purchased a 16oz bottle based off the reviews hoping I would have great results but I had the complete opposite. I currently use 464 soy wax and I added 9% FO. I had a decent CT, and after letting my 8oz candles cure for 8 days I didn't have a HT. Unfortunately, I have a big bottle that I will never use.
I love the scent of dryer sheets, fresh laundry, you name it. I combined this with garden mint and really like it! I might try it on its own sometime but felt that it wasn't strong or notable enough. It's very light, clean-smelling, and refreshing without smelling like a cleaner.
This is a very beautiful, sophisticated fruity-floral fragrance. Smells great throughout my home and I can't wait to smell like this fragrance myself, from head to toe. It's so delicate and pretty. If a beautiful love story had a fragrance, it would smell like this.
Well, this one has me puzzled. I mix perfumes and scent soaps and lotions for gifts, and I do have a weak spot for fresh 'cotton' type scents, because they remind me of clean laundry. The downside is that they usually smell like laundry soap. This one doesn't. When I first got this open, it was barely detectable in bottle or on skin, but mostly smelled of faint ozone. Next, I applied to my wrist with a huge wet slick and got a strange chemical soap scent. It smelled maybe like laundry on the line sometimes, but other times the waft was akin to car exhaust. I just can't tell. Next is to try it in lotions and soap and see what I get. I sometimes like it and sometimes hate it. It's a strange one.
Wanted to add to my previous review; this fragrance has exceptional hot/cold throws as well. It’s so incredibly elegant and fragrant, blends beautifully with paraffin. This is my absolute new favorite and I typically don’t lean toward fresh or floral scents. It’s absolutely stunning.
Such a delicate and elegant fragrance; reminds me of an afternoon tea party with fresh linens and floral bouquets. It’s absolutely exquisite and I’m thrilled to add it to my Spring line.
Man, this FO took me by surprise. I didn't think much of it when I took the cap off and smelled it. But after I made 8 candles with it a couple days ago, the scent just started coming out more and more. I was really starting to like it more. I tend to pour 1/2 of the 1 ounce oil in at 10 degrees less than the flashpoint, stir for 3 minutes. Then I pour the other half in 20 degrees cooler, stir for another 2 minutes and then pour. I use GB 464 soy wax. I gave it 4 stars cause I don't know what the hot throw is going to be like. I will smell it again after it has cured for a week or so.
I AM SO MAD AT MYSELF! I should have ordered this WAY sooner than I did! It's amazing!
I usually get a headache from the linen and sea whatever fragrances. Not this one! It's so beautiful and warm....
Love, love this scent! Got the sample bottle and was amazed-ordering bigger bottle! Such and elegant scent.
This is my personal favorite of the 15 fragrances I sell. It lifts my mood every time I burn it. Love the hint of sandalwood with the light clean smell of linen, very unique aroma!
This is our best selling fragrance in our soap line. Customers order 4 to 5 bars at a time so they don't run out. Please don't discontinue this fragrance. We love it in our soy candles too!!!
Just to clarify...in NO way does this fragrance replace or smell anything like Sun Washed Linen! Completely opposite and in a GOOD way. SWL ran me out of the room it was disgustingly strong, over powering, headache causing fragrance and only a small percentage of my customers really like it. Those who like SWL thought the room spray in Lush Linen was not strong enough but they really like it in candle form. However, my customers who didn't like SWL at all absolutely LOVED Lush Linen - as do I. It's complex, upscale, bougie and oh yeah, I sell a lot of it. It is a kin to Clean Cotton with a gentle touch of floral. It is the first clean smelling, beautiful floral that I actually love. On the test burn for my candles I enjoyed it so much that I burned the candle all the way down. Highly recommend!
I bought this to make candles for my wedding as favors, I really love the smell. It is VERY concentrated so a little will go a long way, which is nice. I dont have to worry if I will have enough. I am very happy that I took a gamble and bought it. The smell is very nice and clean. I would recommend.
I’m in love with something new-“LUSH LINEN”!
An OMG fragrance.
I LOVE this scent. Very upscale.
This is a beautiful scent. Upscale, top shelf type of scent. Doesn't really scream "linens" to me, but it is lovely and strong.
Did not get a good response from this sent. Used a para soy mix. 1/2 an ounce in 10oz of wax. 8 oz jelly jar. Costumers complained they coud not smell the sent.
I absolutely love this fragrance. I received a sample of it and used it in my cold process soap as the main fragrance and blended with other fragrances and essential oils. It soaped wonderfully and smells fresh and clean. There was no ricing or acceleration and the scent did not fade. It has been a fast seller and I am back to order a big bottle to make more.
Luxurious, Warm Richness, Upscale yet humble scent. Love, love, love.
I made melt and pour soap, lotion bars and candles, they all smell awesome!
I absolutely love this fragrance. Others said it smells like a cleaner but I did not get any of that when I first opened my sample up and smelled it. It is clean and fresh with a light fragrance of lemon and floral. I recently used this in a custom fragrance blend in my cold process soap. It blends beautifully with florals and essential oils. The blend did not accelerate trace or discolor my soap at all. I will be ordering more of this!
I completely understand that everyone likes different scents so it’s hard to review based on personal scent preferences. My disappointment is that this is replacing sun washed linen. SWL is amazing! This leaves a lot to be desired. I bought a 16oz because the description really sold this fragrance for me. I purchased the first day it was released and have waited these few months to give it a fair shot but I still don’t like it. It smells like several scents were thrown into water and bottled as a fragrance oil. It doesn’t even remind me of a distant cousin of SWL. My 5-year old says this reminds him of sweet tea which may be a compliment because he loves sweet tea lol.
Not impressed with this fragrance , I used it for my wax melts. Thank goodness I only bought a sample. It is too light to even smell with cold and hot throw.
I love the cold throw on this one but for some reason the hot throw is not there at all. I used 464 4 oz tins eco10 poured max allow fo at 165 degrees but nothing, only an amazing cold throw. Any advise?
the 5 *s is the cold throw is amazing and is a very luxurious scent. I just wish it was a strong hot throw.
Not as good as clean cotton scent
So like I promised I am back! I still love this scent. I had a little left over from my candles and used it as wax melts, burned it in my classroom and everyone wanted to know what it was. Lets say I have a hit and a great seller. Thanks Candle Science!
I’m a huge fan of clean linen type scents but I didn’t care for this at all. OOB it smelled very earthy and reminded my husband and I of old lady perfume. I may make a small trial sized candle and see if it’s any better but I’ll be sticking to Clean Cotton for my linen scent
I typically am not A FAN of "clean scents" but this was the perfect mixture. Can't wait to use.
I really love this scent. It's soft and slightly floral without being too perfumey. I used 7% in Golden Brands 464. At first the cold throw was a bit weak, but after curing for about a week it was perfect. The hot throw was also great!. I think next time I will use 8% because I like a stronger candle. I normally gravitate towards the more woodsy, non-sweet, non-floral fragrances. This scent I find to be fresh and smells "real", not fake or synthetic and will make a great addition to my candle line.
I wasn't in love with this scent straight out of the bottle. I made wax melts with it and accidentally used them before my 7 day cure time was up. Oh goodness, the scent is incredible and filled my entire 2 story house. This scent is a winner!
I purchased this scent to try it in my wax melts and I have mixed emotions on it. I like it, and it is a lovely earthy smell, but not sure if I love it. It almost has a patchouli type scent to it. They boutique that my melts are in smelled the oil and they loved it, but I am still not sure about it. I will see after it has been made into tarts and see how it sells. I just have mixed emotions.
Linen Lush is a wonderful blend. I've been looking for a new all year fragrance for making Candles...I Think I've found it!
This is a great smell I hope candlescience keeps it on their shelves
I'm sorry, this is not a win for me. OOB it smells like "Joy" lemon dish soap and patchouli. I hope it smells better when I make wax melts. :(
First of all..I am not for linen or laundry fragrances but this has to be one of the most enlightening scents I've ever smelt. So clean, lush & earthy without being too soapy or floral. Upscale to say the least.
I purchased the sample and loved it. Lover of Patchouli and Muguet. Going to use in candles and spa products. Gives a feeling of zen and a garden. Very relaxaing.
I just can’t decide what I think about it.. I wanted to love it but all I can think about is flowers and grandmas house. Not that it’s a bad one. Maybe I will let it burn a while and see
OMG! OMG! I just wanted to say I recieved this today and straight out of the bottle is so delish. Will up date further once I have made and tested a candle! Great job Candlescience.
