Mahogany Shea wraps you in a warm blanket of earthy woods and creamy shea. A top note of sweet almond gives way to the slight nutty aromas of shea and coconut. Natural woody notes of sandalwood and cedar are smoothed out with light musk and tonka bean base notes. The final result is a fragrance that’s warm, cozy, and beautiful all year round.

Create soft, inviting candles and reed diffusers for any space with this scent. Mahogany Shea is also an exceptionally soothing fragrance in soaps, lotions, and body care creations.

This fragrance is infused with natural essential oils, including cedarwood, cedar leaf, patchouli, and olibanum.

We experienced a very slight acceleration but no separation. Once we added the lye water to the fragranced oils and hand stirred a few times, a light emulsion was created. Based on this we expected more acceleration with the stick blender but it very slowly came to a light trace; we continued to stick blend to a medium trace. The batter stayed nice and fluid and did not start to thicken as we poured into the mold. Overall the fragrance was easy to work with, but we would recommend bringing your batter to a very light trace before adding fragrance to avoid a possible false trace. After 24 hours the soap had discolored a light tan shade and almost reached a full gel. We observed a large amount of glycerin rivers throughout the bars which gave them a very unique look. The scent was nice and strong with a slightly nutty character. After 30 days the soap had discolored to a pale yellow shade and the scent was subtle but had a sweet nutty character that is very pleasant.

Smells like a spa

It smells like a relaxing spa. This is a great year round candle I'll be using in my bathroom or bedroom for spa days or whenever I need to relax. It's a subtle scent, but has good cold throw. I highly recommend this one and will definitely be making more of this scent.

Subtle but I love this!!

I was excited to get this fragrance! I mixed this with another fragrance and made a beautiful scent for my Melanin candle line. I’ll be keeping this in my rotation. I’m excited to mix it with other fragrances!

Does not smell like shea

I don't like this scent. It is too perfumey and it gives me a headache. I was expecting it to smell kind of woodsy and smell like shea butter, but it doesn't.


Love elegant scent.

One Candle Jar
Love it mix

Stand alone in a candle not strong enough. Mix with sea salt and orchid And made wax melts omg love it. Ordering more . Please keep this scents.


Out of the bottle may smell a little strange or "only good for bath & body products", but when blended in a candle it's SO sophisticated! I blended with my fav floral FO and smells amazing, I'll be definitely adding to my candle line.

Light good base

Very light. Don’t use it on its own. Very good when blended correctly.


Not at all what I expected. Just gross!


I was really sold when I saw Shea and almond oil. Was looking for a softer scent like how marvelous Shea butter and coconut smells but not the case. Mahogany is pretty strong in this one. Its almost a masculine scent.

Kalour Candles
Not a Fan

I was hoping this would be more soft, kind of like in the cocoa butter, shea butter family. It's hard to describe the scent but definitely not what I was expecting. Would probably be great for body care products, but as a candle, I don't think so.

Good for bath/body products

This scent would be good for a lotion or soap, even a homemade shampoo or conditioner. I don’t know that I like it as a stand-alone candle fragrance. Would be a good blender too

Lovely scent, good for mixing in candles

I was going to give this four stars at first because while I think it is a beautiful scent, it didn't work for me as a stand-alone candle scent. However, I found that this scent mixes beautifully with others giving an added layer of complexity that I really appreciate! As a stand-alone scent, I think this would be better suited to bath/body products but of course that's just my opinion. It's a perfect year round scent and I hope that candle science keeps it because I have some candles that I can't wait to try with it!!
