Our Margarita fragrance oil is an energizing burst of sweet, salty, and tart citrus with a shot of tequila. Immerse yourself in the feeling of a sizzling hot day with fresh squeezed lime, coarse sea salt, and ozonic airy top notes. Middle notes of tropical guava and juicy orange serve as the orange liqueur part of the margarita, while the base notes of sugar and agave nectar smooth out the tequila. Candles and wax melts made with Margarita will transport you to a poolside cabana. This scent is ideal for body care products since the tart sweetness makes for a vitalizing, citrusy clean feel. Exfoliating scrubs, soaps, and foaming bath butters are fun, refreshing additions to any washroom or kitchen.

This fragrance is infused with natural essential oils, including lemongrass, petitgrain, and clove leaf.

Blends well with: Strawberry Guava, Peach Nectar

Alternative branding ideas: Sea Salt and Lime

Suggested colors: Any shade of green

We did not experience any acceleration, but there was a significant amount of separation of the oils and water without ricing. This fragrance will be tricky to work with and will take some patience. We recommend keeping a backup stick blender handy. The batter took an extended amount of time to come to a light trace, and once the stick blender stopped it separated. We would blend for 2-3 minutes and then hand stir to give the stick blender a break. When we notice the batter came to what we thought was a very thick trace we stopped blending. After a gentle stir, the batter thinned back to a soupy-consistency. We repeated this process three times before it finally held at a medium trace with no separation. The batter was easy to manipulate, did not stiffen, and poured into the mold well. After 24 hours, the scent was strong, and there was no discoloration. We did observe signs of a partial gel. After the cure, the soap was a light yellow shade, and the scent was strong. While this fragrance can be problematic to work with, the finished bars look great and smell amazing.

*Note - This fragrance was tested at a 5% fragrance load. With the release of IFRAs 49th Amendment this fragrance can now be used at 4.63% to remain IFRA compliant.

This is an absolute favorite of mine :(

I purchased this oil quite some time ago and it got lost in the back of my curing cabinet. Found it out 2 weeks ago, made a batch of candles and they were absolutely amazing! They sold so fast that I had to keep one back for myself. I just came on to buy more of this oil, only to see that it's been discontinued :(
PLEASE tell me you can do a special order? I am so sad about this. I already have customers asking for more.

Why are discontinuing this scent? Will you be replacing it soon? Disappointment to learn this is no longer going to be available.

Hello and thank you for taking the time to write this review. We made the difficult choice to discontinue this fragrance oil due to low sales, and at this time we don’t have any plans to share about a replacement. For a similar scent, we’d recommend Citrus Agave blended with Sea Mist or Cucumber Water and Melon. A member of our Customer Support team is reaching out via email to provide further assistance.

Margarita Please

Just logged in to find out you guys are discontinuing the Margarita f/oil. I only have one question-why? Margarita is an amazing sent. Would you please reconsider. Not only do I love it, so do my clients. Even though I'm disappointed to hear the news I have to continue on reordering my other supplies.

Very sad to see this discontinued

This was such a fun, unique fragrance that was a staple in one of my candles, paired with Sea Mist. No idea what I'll need to mix instead now to get a close scent.

Hello! Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts about Margarita. We apologize for any difficulty caused by the fragrance discontinuation and appreciate your feedback. While it won't be an exact match, substituting Citrus Agave may work well in your blend. A member of our Customer Support team is reaching out via email to provide further information.

Despite the notes on how this one worked in CP soap, I bought it anyway because I guess I just love a challenge lol. But I was pleasantly surprised! I didn’t experience any separation or anything! I added the fragrance directly to my cooled oils before I added the room temp lye/milk mixture. Blended to a very light trace and separated my batter so I could color what I wanted quickly enough because it did accelerate quite fast. I got everything in the mold before it was too set up to pour and did a hanger swirl, nothing too crazy considering the acceleration was a lot. I’m really excited to cut this and see how it turned out, my bathroom smells wonderful while it’s curing in there. Definitely not a fragrance for beginner soapers though.

I've been purchasing from CS for years now and haven't written a single review.. I'm not sure why I haven't done so before or why I'm writing one now but i absolutely LOVE this fragrance in the blend that I use it for my candle paraffin wax candle... there are other scents I wished they didn't discontinue but I hope this one stays for the long hall!!!
