The cold throw is really good on this candle, floral & perfumy. I let the candles cure for about 2 weeks and the results weren't that great. I must say before going in on the review, Candle Science makes good fragrances, you just have to find the right ones. I also believe that not all fragrances are made for candles. Some perform better in soaps, butters and bath products than they do in a wax, so please keep that in mind as you shop around for your new fragrance. horrible. The scent throw is extremely light, my customers were extremely disappointed, because they expected a stronger hot throw just like the cold throw. I must also add that it was a bit too powdery. The magnolia is definitely at peak in this fragrance but the peony comes off very powdery. My first attempt was using it with 464 soy wax. I then tried it with GI 6006 SOY/PARAFFIN BLEND and got the same exact results. I decided to try different wicks because I really wanted the scent to work and that still failed. I tried ECO, HTP & CD wicks, all 3 failed. I also considered using a different container, so I went from a glass tumbler jar to a tin can. Similar to the black coral scent, I have product just sitting on my shelves that I have to consider as pure waste, because I JUST CAN'T sell them. All in all still gave it two stars because 7/10 of my candle science fragrances that I have tried have been pretty good. I do not want readers to not have confidence in the brand, just not this scent or at least not in candles. For those of you looking for a good floral scent with an amazing throw, please try the rose petals scent. It is AMAZING! Thank me later

We experienced a moderate amount of acceleration but no separation. This fragrance moved so fast we could not determine an emulsion from trace before quickly finding the batter at a thick trace, all within seconds. As we promptly scraped the batter into the mold we could see it was becoming grainy but did not stiffen. After 24 hours, the soap was much too soft to unmold; after 3 days, the soap was still soft but we were able to remove it from the mold cleanly. We observed the soap had nearly reached a full gel with signs of potential overheating in the center. The scent seemed mild and there was no discoloration. After 30 days, the scent is stronger and the bars discolored to a light tan. For design, we recommend a single color and hand stirring in the fragrance at a light trace.
I only wish the original (it was called pink or white magnolia) was not discontinued, but rather worked out. The original and many others like it such as Lavender Chamomile were top favorites. And now I see another top favorite, Hydrangea is off the site. Cala Lily is close but a bit stronger. I know scents change etc. but these are classic ones that will never go out.
I got this as a sample, because I love the smell of both magnolia and peony. It is very strong. Maybe a little too strong? But hey, that just means you could probably use less.
Magnolias and Peonies have very distinctive fragrances on their own and would do well having their own fragrance oils respectably.
I feel its very sugary.
It might be a good idea to make one Magnolia Blossom and another oil Peony Petals or something :)
Thanks Candle Science! :)
I purchased this based on the high ratings, but I wasn’t impressed with this one. In fact I don’t leave ratings but felt like I needed to for this one. I ordered over a dozen samples and this one was one of my least favorites. I have ordered over 40 something fo’s as well and I just didn’t care for this one. It has a soapy smell, didn’t produce much of a ht, and didn’t set well. Glad I ordered a small size. Still on the search for more floral options.
Hello! Thanks so much for leaving a review. We understand that not every scent can be everyone's favorite, but a member of our Support team has reached out to you via email to assist further with this!
I used this to make a magnolia custom candle for one of my customers and out of the bottle, I really liked it but it never stuck out to me compared to other florals. When my candle set, the cold throw was so intense and the scent transformed! My customer received her candle and raved about it, saying the throw on it is amazing. Overall, I'm very happy with this scent and am now considering this in a more permanent line or at the very least, making one for myself!! It's awesome.
This is one of my favorite smells.... this company has not disappointed me yet ❤️
I'm not a flower scent person But this scent is AMAZING!!!! It's not strong, it smells light and has a nice rose smell to it. :) definitely buying more
Love OOB. Light, fresh, clean and a great floral scent.
A new favorite. Smells similar to English Garden but it is a lovely scent. I use in 464 cured for 3 days and it has an amazing HT.
Light, fresh, floral. Not overly perfumy. I'd describe it as "pretty."
I really love this fragrance but feel it needs mixing to tone it down....any suggestions?? I just 464 wax in 8oz candles.
I love this scent. I use it for my soap, Magnolia. Clean floral scent, not too overwhelming.
Honestly, this may be my favorite scent from CS! Absolutely love how subtle, but elegant this scent is!
