Rating it at a 3 star bc the is smells great but... i ordered both Mediterranean Fig and Juniper Breeze and I'm pretty sure they are the exact same thing. I even asked several people if they could tell the difference- even used them in 464 soy candles, and there was no difference in fragrance. I'd hate to say it, but I think either the labels were switch or I've been dooped.

Smells just like Cashmere Woods.
No problems with hot or cold throw, only problem is, I never have enough .lol.
Let's start by saying its not a... bad smell... but its not a mediterranian fig either. It reminds me of commonly used odor covering smells like Febreeze or Glade.
The top note was fig... but it was a small top note.
This fragrance smells amazing! I was so excited to use it but then I double checked to make sure it was phthalate-free before making a batch of candles and I was crushed when I read that it was not phthalate-free! I must have missed-read it when ordering. Shoot! I only sell phthalate-free candles in my shop so PLEASE CandleScience make this fragrance Phthalate free!!
Used with GB464 at 11% and it is out of this world! Amazing. Cold throw does not do it justice. A must add to any collection. A definite keeper for us
Thought I would venture out my cozy circle and try something new. Used GB 464 at 11% fragrance and it filled the room (and others). AMAZING!!!!!! Will definetely purchase again and will try in CP soap.
10% FO load in GB 464 with ECO10 wick in jelly jar
Love, love this scent but I've had issues with the wick not remaining lit. Spoke with a helpful CS rep and she said to try going up or down in size and I'm inclined to go up. If this can be resolved, this will be a perfect candle with a sophisticated scent.
I wasn't too sure about this but now that I have burned it, I LOVE it!! This would be a good one to have burning on display because the cold throw does not do it justice.
I'm new at candle making and I ordered this fragrance thinking it would be sweeter smelling, but it smelled pretty flowery to me. It was too flowery for my tastes, so I sent it back without using it in anything.
This is one of the best sent for my candle, but just one thing I hope it is going to be phthalate free.
One of my favorites! Great cold and hot throw!!! Smells beautiful and rich! I love burning this candle! Used 4627 Comfort Blend
When I first smelled this out of the bottle I got hit with melon big time, and was kinda disappointed. A day or two after I poured (used 464) still only melon :( after a week of curing the cold throw totally changed, now it smells amazing! Don't be disappointed by the immediate scent. Haven't burned these guys yet so not sure about hot throw, but I would definitely recommend a long cure time.
This is definitely a winner and a must add to any candle line. I agree with some other reviewers- not sure what a Meditteranean Fig smells like, but I love this candle. Has nice woodsy-floral notes with fruity underneath (subtle). A very sophisticated scent- would be great if you were having guests over for dinner. Great for any time of year. I used 1 oz/lb in GB 464.
This scent is a winner in my book for sure! Not sure what Mediterranean Fig smells like but I know this FO smells damn good! It has a slight earthiness to it but not overpowering though, it's a great blend, and the notes really come together well. This scent is very strong too which I really love about it. I used a 4 percent FO load in a 10 ounce candle and the hot throw was nice and strong. Can easily fill a large area. This scent kinda reminds me of Oakmoss and Amber, another great scent, but they are indeed different and both amazing scents. Great job CS!
Very nice fig scent (used soy wax), as others have mentioned. Not too heavy. The cold throw was a bit weak, but the hot throw was fantastic, which surprised me. Definitely a keeper--will buy this again.
A truely beautiful sophisticated fig fragrance.They really managed to capture the fig in this one. I agree w/the others a "higher end" fragrance like Oakmoss & Amber. This would be a great fragrance category "sophisticated/high end fragrances."
Everyone loves this and with good reason. It is a dead on dupe of Trapp candles. It is wonderful in parasoy tarts and cp soap. Behaves beautifully and scent stays true.
This has gotten a lot of good reviews. Nice throw in GB 464, a good scent for many different tastes. Unique and classy. :)
I got this as a free sample and will be ordering more. This is the new addition to my candle line.
this is great ! very fresh most excellent for my diffuser reeds ! i totally love it, its a clean but happy scent ........ 5 *****
I put this into HP soap and it was perfect with the rustic look. The scent was pretty strong at first but mellowed out as I let the soap age. Really nice earthy scent with a hint of fruit, just a touch though.
