We did experience a moderate amount of acceleration but no separation. The batter was at a medium trace within seconds of stick blending. It remained workable enough to get into the mold with ease, and gentle tapping of the mold on the table easily smoothed the surface. We recommend adding the fragrance as late as possible and incorporating colors first, if using. After 24 hours the soap was discolored to a yellow shade and the scent became a strong sweet citrus. We observed that the soap reached a partial gel without any insulation. After 30 days the soap had discolored to a light brown shade. The scent became more of a sweet mandarin and was pleasantly strong. Due to the acceleration of the fragrance, a single color or simple layer pattern would be ideal. The discoloration may be overcome by adding some titanium dioxide to the soap batter.

Please bring back the original blend!! This is nothing like the original and it was one of my best sellers! Trying to find a replacement from other sources but this was the best!


We had to discontinue one of our top sellers due to this new formula not being even close to previous oil.

Not the same

Very sad to have to let this candle go from my line. The new version doesn't smell anything like the old one!

No mandarine, all champagne

I'm getting literally 0 mandarine smell from this. I thought maybe it was because I had been smelling other scents so I left it and came back later, and still... Nothing. I was really hoping for an orange scent for summer, pretty disappointed. It's not a bad scent by any means but definitely not citrus.

The original scent has been one of my best selling fragrances. I just recently bought the new version and HATE IT!!! To me it smells just like plumeria. The fresh citrus scent was the winning component in the old one. Now all I smell is fake floral. Super disappointed....I’m hoping I can mix it with some citron and mandarin or another citrus and be able to use it successfully.

Owner - 5 Points Candle Co

We have used the original Mimosa and Mandarin for years. This scents has been the best seller for us with our customers and our stores that we wholesale and private label with. This scent is NOTHING like the original. Not even close. Taking out fruity elements and adding in Amber and Sandalwood should be an indication to the creators that this would not be the same. We understand trying to make fragrances safer, but whoever thought the scent was even remotely close and that it would be ok to give it the same name was very wrong.

Good but not the same as Original

The notes in this fragrance oil has completely changed. It's good but when your customers are used to the original mimosa mandarin, which has more mandarin/tangerine notes - this throws them way off by having more of a champagne smell. I think it's a completely new/different FO that should've been given a new name. I love that CS has tried to give us a phthalate free fragrance now but we're losing what we initially loved about it. Used to be one of my best sellers, so let's see how my customers react to the change.

I love the scent

I ordered a sample bottle and my peeps loved the scent. I used it in candles and MP soaps.
