This is a great fragrance to practice with if you’ve never experienced acceleration! We brought this to an emulsion and things looked ok. A few more pulses of the stick blender and we could see solid chunks of soap forming. We immediately removed the stick blender and used a spatula to make sure everything was incorporated. The batter had turned into a cottage cheese-like texture. There were no signs of oil and water separation so we plopped the soap into the mold and pressed it all down as tight as we could. After 20 minutes we saw the soap was in a full gel and starting to crack and expand through the center. Fortunately, the soap did not volcano and settled back into the mold within an hour. After 24 hours the soap was very oily and still resembled cottage cheese curds. The scent was still incredibly strong, almost too strong, so we decided to just rebatch the whole loaf. The soap held together as we took it out of the mold, but it had very defined lines of every little chunk that formed just before it went into the mold. The oil may have reabsorbed eventually and the whole soap would have been ok, but it looked very unappealing. We cut the bars into small chunks and tossed them in the crockpot. The soap came out great and the scent remained very strong. There was a light tan discoloration. After 30 days the scent is still quite strong—we recommend not using more than 3-4% fragrance in a cold process application. Due to the minimal discoloration, a wide variety of colors would work well for this fragrance.

I love the scent of the candle, but like other's I cannot get this FO to mix properly no matter what I do. I am hoping the version that replaces this one smells just as good, as I love the scent, but mixes better with the wax. I am using 464 wax and it is oily on the top and not smooth also leaves pits.


Love it

This is my best seller. I love it so sad it’s leaving



omg i just bought some and now it's discontinued!!??!!? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO


Careful with CP Soap!

I couldn’t wait to try this fragrance because OOB it’s beautiful. I had all my micas mixed, added my lye and I got soap on a stick immediately. I tried to save it and crammed it into my mold. Not sure what I’ll have tomorrow but it’s a no-go for CP soap for this fragrance.


I'm in love

I love the scent of peonies. I've bought Peony FO's from three other companies. They were ok but most of them were very lightly scented. This one smells much stronger and super sweet. I can smell the magnolia more than the peony but it is such I nice convination that I really don't care.


Wonderful Scent!

Such an amazing scent, you definitely get a top note of lily, I would say this is a beautiful fragrance for Spring or summer. I 100% recommend to anyone looking to have floral scents.



This fragrance is AMAZING. I love that it isn't too floral like Jasmine. It's softer. Perfect!!


Upscale, Feminine and Soft!

One of my favorites! It's one of those scents that you keep resmelling, falling more in love with it the more you smell it. It's so different, customers are so drawn to it. So soft, feminine, innocent and fresh. If the color light pink had a scent, this would be it! Please don't ever discontinue!



Favorite scent EVER!


Co-owner, Linked Keys

I absolutely adore this scent and so do my customers! This is a soft and ultra feminine floral scent. It is wonderful! It’s a best seller with my lotions and soaps. Speaking of which...this scent does NOT work well with CP or candles. This scent works extremely well in HP soaps and lotions.


Bring back Pink Magnolia Blossom

The original Pink Magnolia Blossom was a much better fragrance than Magnolia & Peony, which I assume is the replacement after the original scent was discontinued. This version is still a decent smell but not nearly as good as the original


Ok for Whipped Soap

I left a review for CP soap earlier this morning. Since then, the soap batter went into gel phase and I was able to plop it into a loaf mold. It's finishing its gelling now.

This fragrance smells divine! And it has worked for me in a whipped soap base.

Ann Dowless

No good in CP soap

I am so frustrated with how my soap batter performed with this FO. My fault for not reading previous reviews. It seized IMMEDIATELY upon adding to batter. I was using a flower mold for this soap and it just won't work. Trying to save it with hot process now.

Ann Dowless

Nothing like pink magnolia blosoom

One thing that sucks about being a small business and using suppliers like CS is when they change formulas and it completely messes up a whole product. This smells NOTHING like pink magnolia blossoms which is what it's meant to be replacing.
The original was a fave in my collection and no one is happy that it's gone.

Please bring back the old scent if you can.

On Second Note

Loved the scent in the bottle....cold throw was amazing , light and refreshing floral scent! Hot throw very light could hardly smell anything...

Issue after issue with this scent

I have 10 signature fragrances in my line and this is the only one I continually have problems with. Almost every candle I use Magnolia & Peony with doesn't set properly (whether it be frosting, not blending with the wax, leaving wet spots on the glass) you name the issue, I've probably experienced it with this scent. I am so confused! Yesterday I poured 50 candles and the 4 with this scent were the ONLY ones that didn't set right. I have tried so many variations trying to get this to work because my customers like the smell.. Mixing the FO hotter, colder; pouring hotter, colder, less oil, and NOTHING seems to work. Such a shame, but I have probably be removing it from my line. Using 464 soy. Any tips?



I don't care for this scent...
Where is the Pink Magnolia fragrance you used to carry??? Could you not copy it? That was one of my favorites and this is a very poor replacement!

Lavender Lady Candles

Good Floral

I'm not a floral fan, but felt the need to try this in CP soap based on CS`s description. Game on with this FO. Followed other reviews and went with a single color (premixed into oils) and used almost 3% scent ratio - very strong. Added the FO at very light trace. This FO moves; however, i did not experience the extreme. I got all the soap into the mold and had enough time to beat out air bubbles and roughly textue the top. It smells lovely and looks pretty. I will continue with this floral knowing its limitations.


Shop Owner

Absolutely love this scent! The cold and hot throw are Amazingly strong . I can't keep this candle on the shelf!!!


Light hot throw

It has a very light hot throw. The cold throw is okay, not fantastic, but the hot throw is very weak. I've tried with different waxes, wicks and at different % . It's still the same thing. Wanted this to be the floral scent in my candle line but it's just not working.

Jenn A

Does not mix with soy

I’ve tried to make it work and I cannot. This scent is garbage for the 464 soy blend. I feel that candle science should be vetting this kind of reaction when the candle sets. Save your money.


Love this scent

Got to try this Scent as a sample bottle. Super excited to make candles with it and we used the sample bottle for a foaming hand soap! Love it!


Light hot/cold throw

Candles; This is ok for a bathroom or small room.
NOT a strong Whole house scent.
My batch; 464 wax/6-12oz jars (72oz) CD18 wick
6oz fragrance cure tested at one and two weeks.
(Medium Strength)

Lucky Rooster


This is such a beautiful and sophisticated fragrance on it’s own and with other scents! Don’t judge the scent by the bad reviews for how the oil works in soap. The heavenly scent makes for wonderful and popular candles! Please don't discontinue!


Cannot get enough of this FO!!!

Imagine baby powder and roses mixed together! It smells so luxurious and beautiful. A little overpowering though. But that’s okay because I like strong scents. You will not regret buying this if you love floral powdery scents.


This is a NAUGHTY scent !

I have been making CP soap for more than a year, and had yet to have soap batter seize on me....Enter Magnolia and Peony!!!
There was nothing different about my recipe or way I was creating this batch of soap (other than the fragrance). I added the fragrance, poured the batter into 2 different cups & added mica to each cup. No sooner did I go back to the 1st cup to mix the mica it was thicker than molasses on a cold morning. With extreme gusto I managed to mix the micas in. By the time I got the micas through the batter, I was cramming the disaster into the mold. I banged the wooden mold on the counter to remove as much air as I could, I pressed it flat into the mold as well. I put it to bed, covered it with cling wrap & wrapped in a bath towel.
Through my trials with this naughty fragrance, despite a few air pockets it came out to be a nice soap. I do like the fragrance, smells lovely !!
Needless to say, I will not purchase again. Soaping with fragrance anxiety is no fun.


Smells Great

This smells great. It is a little strong however, it is my best seller as a candle and perfume.


Lovely bold floral scent but has been problematic in 464 (7% FO) - every batch I've poured has lumpy tops, holes & some frosting, despite trying a range of pour temps to remedy these issues.



Unfortunately, I love the smell but I have extremely bad frosting when using this with C-3 Naturewax. Hopefully someone can help me out here! I've never had such an issue with a FO.


Great In GB 464

This fragrance is very strong in 464. My customers absolutely love the scent!

The Candle Bakkeri

Not for CP Soap

Seized immediately in CP soap. Heated the soap so quickly , gelled in the pot. Beautiful clean fragrance, but def not for CP soap


Amazing In Soy!

This fragrance is nice and strong in 464. My customers who love Magnolia adore this scent.

Candle Bakkeri


Love this new scent! Great cold and hot throw in my candles!


Jessie soaps

Within 30 seconds after I put Magnolia and Peony in my soap it has totally seized. This was a nine pound block of seized soap. I love the scent but won t be using anymore.

Jessie Norwood

Ruins CP soap. Locked immediately, even though i have a great, slow moving recipe. I will use in HP soap, and then shouldn't have a problem.
Beautiful scent though.


Magnolia and Peony

Just got my sample and it smells good so far in the bottle, however I sense it might be a little on the sweeter side in a candle. Has anyone mixed this any other fragrances? I’m tempted to try a little English Garden for more of a green floral rather than sweet.

Allie London

Seasonal Scents

Great hot and cold throw. Customers who have bought this one love it.


Not as good as I thought!

I really didn’t love this scent. Is a good but soft scent and I didn’t feel the magnolia at all. Not a fan!


Body Spa Emporium

This is a truly beautiful floral scent! I’m not a big floral person but this scent is sophisticated and strong. I was on the fence with attempting CP but I did. You better be ready for a full seize. I even used a water discount (not a bright idea 🤭) but I was able to slap the soap into the mold. You will have seconds once mixed so plan accordingly. My bars came out beautiful despite the fast moving oil. It’s worth it because the scent is sooo beautiful!!


Don't attempt CP

I have never worked so hard to get a batch of soap out of a pot. I am an experienced soaper (20 plus years) and I just almost lost my mind. Read the soap review on the fragrance page. It's true. I am guessing this is going to be a big flop in the morning! Something is wRonG. lol


Great Scent in CP Soap

Personally i love this scent. I made CP soap with it, with a 33% Lye Concentration. I did not have any issues with ricing or seizing. So far no discoloration. I did a 3 color mix. Now.....when i added my Mica's & mixed, it did thicken up but it sat for 3 or more min while i was working on the rest and this may have been the reason why. I do get a powdery scent but it's beautiful. I think it will be a great seller for me.


I was disappointed

I was disappointed with this scent. Peony is one of my favorite smells on earth and I couldn't smell any in this. It smells too powdery. Made me sick.


Owner of LaVonBlu

Great scent, however it is NOT suitable for CP soaps. When I added it to the soap it instantly locked up, I had to scrape it out of the bowl. Great for the candles and lotions and other things though


Smells great!

Love this scent! Very beautiful mix.


Love it!

This has been a hit for me! customers love it. I did a small batch to test and it was a complete success. It is a very fresh floral scent, its a great scent for spring.


Not my cup of tea

I was so looking so forward to this scent. I love both the pink magnolias scent you carried and I have a peony scent I love. It’s neither magnolia nor peonies in my opinion. I just don’t smell either. It’s quite off putting.
I think I will mix my own with the peony scent I have and the pink magnolia blossom I have left and will most likely come up with a better scent. In theory, this sounds so beautiful.... but it’s not for me.



This might be a hit for some but its a miss for me. It has an old perfume smell. I didn't get any floral scent in mine.


Beautiful Floral

This one was hit or miss with some customers (I expect that... some enjoy florals and some do not).
Those who do enjoy a beautiful floral scent, this one is great! I will keep it in my spring/summer lineup.


Ultra Feminine!

Wow! This fragrance is sooooo pretty! A soapy clean floral! I can't stop smelling this, this is going to be a best seller! So fresh! You guys have GOT to try this one! Absolutely AMAZING!


I did a test batch with this FO. 3 Day cure before testing and the strongest note coming through is the powder. It's light & pretty although I'm not sure it's floral. Maybe after a longer cure.


Powerhouse Floral

This smells very nice and I compared it to another magnolia blossom oil from a different company. This is similar but more complex. It smells beautiful, and the only thing I'll say, is that upon making test candles, the base notes of the powder come forward more than if you are just smelling it from the bottle. Still, it smells very nice, ultra feminine.
