We did not experience acceleration or separation. The soap was a tan shade, and the scent was strong. We did observe almost a full gel with minimal insulation. The batter was easy to work with and would be ideal for a multiple color design where a slow trace is ideal.
This is by far my FAVORITE scent for making soy candles! It is a sexy, men’s cologne like smell-yet softer. Please don’t ever discontinue this!!!
I purchased this fragrance because it has 5-star reviews and I was excited to try a unique, different scent for my candle business.
I am NOT one to be sensitive to strong fragrances, but this scent was intoxicating in a bad way. When I was making candles with this scent, it gave me such a BAD headache that stayed with me all night and made me nauseous. My boyfriend experienced the same adverse effects, as well as our dog who seemed to have trouble breathing! I use a 9% fragrance load in all of my candles and never had problems with any scent being overwhelming until now! I later lit the candle I made with that fragrance to take a photo and list it on my website. I immediately got the same headache and nauseous feeling. I didn't want to even test lowering the fragrance load, I ended up just taking it off my website.
Hi! Thank you so much for reaching out! We have followed up via email with some more information and please let us know if there is anything else we can do to help!
Smells delicious! It’s a very light scent though.
Received positive feedback on this one from clients.
I use this in my soaps and candles and they're a HUGE hit with my pillar candles.
I only wish I could post a pix. Trust me, it's a gorgeous scent. I buy this on the regular.
Everyone I have given this candle to LOVES it! They say it makes them feel like they're at a spa getaway.
Warm, comforting yet exotic! Sure to be a great seller!
Of all the scents I use to make candles and melts with for my lines, (and I use and make a LOT), this is my husband's favorite scent, hands down! This is a very high-end, fresh, complex, and at the same time earthy scent. Very rich, CLEAN fresh scent. (Clean without that detergent scent many fragrances have, and that I cannot stand in candles!) Please don't stop making this scent. I LOVE it, and customers do too. I can't wait to soap with it!
I was excited about this fragrance oil. Lately it seems that Fig is popping up everywhere. I've noticed that a lot of the local restaurants have some kind of fig dish on the menu. I thought that maybe I should get on the fig bandwagon. Most things fig seem to evoke feelings of warmth and sweetness I think of Marzipan and vanilla when I think of fig. However, I probably should have read the notes on this fragrance more closely. It's not a warm and sweet fragrance its actually a sweet perfume that doesn't remind me of figs in any kind of way. I'm not a big fan of the heavy perfume fragrances that have lots of floral notes. I think I saw fig and ran with it which was an error on my part. If you are looking for something warm and cozy I would skip this scent. This is a nice sweet fragrance, but I'm not sure why fig is in the title. Perhaps, they should call it Mediterranean Breeze or something similar. Another reviewer mentioned that it smelled like a fabric softener. I agree with that assessment, it does have that kind of chemical perfume smell. I'm not a fan, but I imagine many people would enjoy this fragrance. I guess I was caught off guard, because I was expecting something else in my mind. Like I said this was likely due to the fact that I didn't' read the description carefully before buying.
Good solid fig smell. Not super sweet like other fig scents I've tried. Great!!
This is a best seller for me. Always has been. Strong, crisp, slightly tart and fresh. I love it!!
Honestly...it smelled like a fancy fabric softener to me. I tested it out with a handful of different people but nobody liked it :( Didn't smell anything like figs to be but to each their own.
This is one of my favorites
I bought this simply because I needed something outside of the floral and typical fruit scents. I mixed it with a bit of cinnamon/vanilla. In cold process it mixed nicely, didn't seize and, gave me plenty of time to hanger swirl. The results? PEOPLE ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT. This is a winner and one of my biggest sellers. In general I love all the fragrances from candle science, each one is magnificent. I can now add Mediterranean Fig to that list.
On a side note, the people here are amazing; kind, helpful, responsive. I find a mix of that sometimes in other places but candle science stands apart! Not sure how you were able to pull all that into one company, but you did. Both your customer service and products are excellent.
I bought and tried this fragrance before because I didn't notice it wasn't phlatate free. It was one of my favourites and I never bought again because of this detail. I'm so excited it's now p-free! Can't wait to buy it again!
Really love this fragrance. It's a well balanced, light aroma that everyone enjoys. Thank you for phthalate free!!!
