Delicious and juicy....the PERFECT red MacIntosh Apple!! Also an absolute beautiful blender!! LOVE this fragrance!!

Most spot-on scent period!
Submitted on 2015-08-23

This scent is the most incredibly true-to-life scent for Macintosh apples. I grew up in an area that had tons of Macintosh apples in orchards and Macintosh apples are very distinct from other apples. Very identifiable. This scents is awesome and exactly like you are cutting into a real Macintosh Apple. Thank you and great job Candle Science. I love the scent in my candles and my customers do too. Makes me truly enjoy my candle making even more when I get to work with great well-made fragrances like you've done with this one.

I purchased this as a hopeful replacement for the overpriced Yankee reed diffusers. It did not disappoint. This is a perfect replacement for it, and has a crisp, juicy apple scent.

Strong and True!

This smells exactly like apples! I used it to make kids' soap at 2% and it is strong! Haven't tried it in wax yet but will be for fall. Fresh and crisp, nothing artificial smelling . Love it!

this scent has strong crisp apple scent cold and HOT throw. I used with 464 and it's the best how throw I've experienced with soy candle. Highly recommended for soy candles. Most of the scents I've bought from candle science has had a pretty good hot throws with soy candles. I've tried scents from another vendor....this vendor has better scents.

Love this scent!, just wish it was less expensive!

I love this scent, but I NEVER order it b/c its so darn expensive!!! : (

Just like Bath and Body Works Farmstand Apple
Submitted on 2014-11-14

This is a wonderful scent, very much like the Bath and body works farmstand apple candle. I am new to candle making, and this scent has a wonderful hot and cold throw. Remember to always let your candles cure for a few days before lighting, it makes all the difference!

Submitted on 2014-10-12

This is one of the most accurate and strong scents I've tried. Just like a cold, freshly sliced apple. Wonderful hot & cold throw. My husband really likes it as well.

Submitted on 2014-10-03

ok...I normally do not like apple scents, but this one is amazing! Soooooo real!!!!

Submitted on 2014-09-23

This doesn't smell sweet at all. I had to name it green apple. It's tart, and smells like sour apple. After pouring, it actually makes my eyes were burning . It has a chemical smell, and it's the only CS scent that made me a little nauseated. Now, after it cures, it's not as bad. I added caramelized pralines to cut the tartness and name it caramel candy apple. Macintosh apple is not this scent at all. I will have to try harvest apple instead.

This scent is super accurate to its name! It truly smells like fresh cut Macintosh Apples. I made a 12 ounce candle in a status jar with GB 464 and used a 5 percent FO load and it still came out very strong! Cold throw is amazing and the Hot throw is just as awesome. Grab this FO if you are looking for a true to life fresh apple scent.

Macintosh apple is incredible!
Submitted on 2014-01-04

This scent is one of the strongest I've used. It smells
Like a clean cut apple. I recommend this scent to any and all
Fruit and apple lovers. I used it in igi 6006 and I can smell the
Ct across the room. Amazing! I don't usually go for
Fruit smells either!

if only i could give it 10 stars ;-)

This is an amazing apple fragrance, I can't get enough. It makes my whole house smell like I'm in an apple orchard. Will definitely reorder.

Truly the best out there!

A consistant best seller year round. The name says it all. Don't bother looking anywhere else for a Macintosh apple. Used in GB 464 in a 12 square canning jar with 1 htp 105 wick, or a 16oz salsa jar with a cd22 wick or a 12 oz apothecary jar with a cd 22 wick and truly outstanding. I could smell the fragrance through the screens of my windows before I even got in the front door! What does that tell you?

Such an uplifting fresh scent.

Crisp, clean scent
Submitted on 2013-09-06

I use this scent in my oil burner, and it is indeed a fresh, crisp and clean apple scent. After a few hours, the scent can get stale - just add a little base scent (like coconut or vanilla) to spark it right up. Top notch fragrance.

The Best!

Happy Camper
Submitted on 2011-03-12

My sister Amy is my biggest critic and she will tell me if my product fails. Her favorite fragrance is apple and i have tested so many fragrances in the last 5 years. None to hers or my expectation. I have found success with this fragrance. I started using this fragrance initially 5 years ago and tried to cut shipping costs but i compromised on quality. I am a very happy camper...this is the BEST!

A must have!

A very strong fresh apple scent. I will always have this one in stock.

love this one...very strong throw in Soy CB Advanced. This smells just like the Yankee Candle scent. Clean, Crisp & Sweet!

Makes you want to take a bite

Apple is a standard scent needed for candles. This one is beyond standard. It makes you think you are in an orchard it smells so good. We used it with Palm Wax which made for a beautiful container candle. Took tarts to work and left it in the car. When I returned to the car later my car smelled incredible.
