I'm so sad for this scent to go! I burn Mistletoe candles and use wax melts all year long! Anyone know if the new Mistletoe smells anything like the original?


I just placed an order to sample the new phthalate free version of this scent. I’m praying that the new version is IDENTICAL to this one cause it’s my all time favorite scent. I’m so worried that the new version isn’t gonna be the same

WHY are you discontinuing!?!?!?!

I get that this isn't phlathlate free...but if the new version is not IDENTICAL...I will be oh so sad :(. This is by far my favorite fragrance on the entire planet. :'(

Bomb .com

Phthalate free version this year? Pretty please?

So Christmassy!

I've made this fragrance for the last 2 years during the holidays to sell and it is snatched up quickly by happy customers. Great cold & hot throw, too!

A huge hit

This has been my most popular candle to date. Has a lovely cold throw but an amazingly inviting hot throw. I love it and so do my customers!

Candle maker

This is very nice! Sweet and pleasant. Is really nice in the melts and smells awesome in my room sprays. Not just for the holidays.

Mistletoe & Merry Mistletoe

Love them separate but LOVE even more together Mistletoe & Merry Mistletoe 1:1 ratio PERFECT AWESOME

Delightfully Christmas

I turned this into my It's a Wonderful Life inspired candle called Bedford Falls and I sold out fast! I love this scent, it smells like pine and all things Christmas. My husband loves it too. Definitely recommend and will continue to use it.

If you’re a fan of any pine scent you will love this one! My absolute favorite pine scent I’ve gotten from candle science 👍

Nice and Woodsy

This has a very pleasant outdoorsy, woodsy scent. Pretty strong, but not overpowering. It is wonderful in hot and cold process soaps and other products. This one is very similar to Blue Spruce, also from CandleScience. My testers and I really like both of them.

Like Pine-Scented Cleaner/Freshener

Overpowering smell of pine-scented disinfecting cleaner, or a cheap air freshener.

Holiday Favorite

Just wish this was phthalate free... it's one of our favorites & most loved scents by family and friends. Great hot and cold throw. Perfect balance of holiday smells. Highly recommend!!

The Wicket Gate

Loved this!! Great all year round. Cold throw in Soy wax is awesome, same with hot throw.
The smell of this candle just makes me HAPPY!! It's one of those that your kids in the future will go "Remember that wonderful smell in mom's house?!" Well this is it people!! Let me know what you think!

Livelycomplex scent

Definitely Christmasy, but I like it enough for year round. A sweet pine, outdoors type scent. Used in cp soap, it sticks well. And the phthalates in this fragrance oil, (or any that CS carries), are in a non-issue to me, once I'd did some reading on the subject.

Perfect for Christmas

Sold out fast this fall. I and my customers loved this one. I haven't smelled anything like this from the big candle makers. Smells like Christmas with a hint of pine. I used at 10% with para soy blend ig6006. 10 minutes after lighting my whole downstairs is full of fragrance.

Please reformulate

I love love love this scent but I only gave it 3 stars because of the PHTHALATES:( I am hopeful it will be just as luscious when you reformulate it.

Hit of the season

Made a ton of soap with this and was my best seller for the holidays. I’m not sure Mistletoe even has a scent, but if it did this would be it! Love my wax melts made with it too.

Perfect in soap

I used this in cp soap and there was no acceleration or discoloration. It is a very strong scent.

I LOVE this scent! It's been a bestseller with customers as well.

Missed the mistletoe

This fragrance oil smells like a pine tree, not like mistletoe. I am going to order the spruce fragrance oil and see how different they really are...


This is my number one seller. I kept selling out of it! Not only did women love it but men as well. I am in love with this scent. Not to mention
it is very strong and sweet. If you didnt know it was called mistletoe you would smell pine with a sweet smell. My husband loved it so much he had me back something for his truck.

Just like christmas!

Love this scent. Very strong in GB 464. A good seller for the holidays

Amazing holiday scent

This scent is STRONG and is my favorite from CS. Some people have found it too strong but I think it's perfect. It reminds me more of a Christmas Tree than the "Christmas Tree" scent from CS. Please do not change this one!


I absolutely LOVE this scent. Christmas candles are my favorite and this is a perfect Christmas scent.

Owner Magnolia Belles

Amazing scent both hot and cold. I'm so glad I tried this one. Very popular with everyone.

I like this one better than Merry Mistletoe. It's pretty good.

Best scent ever!

I have sampled a LOT of scents and I end up buying bigger quantities of only a few. This scent is fantastic...crisp, clean, wintery. Great cold and hot throw without being overpowering. I have probably sold the most candles of this scent than any other I have had in 18 years.

Christmas in a jar!

Please, never stop making this scent. It's such a wonderful, sophisticated evergreen scent that my customers can never get enough of!

Amazing Scent!!!

This is absolutely my favorite Christmas Scent, and was one of my top 2 sellers! (The other was Cranberry Marmalade) Everyone would pick it up to smell and couldn't put it down. It has an intriguing scent that is so much better than just a Christmas Tree scent. I will be making extra of this one next year! Use GB464 1 1/4 oz/lb of wax.

Best Holiday scent EVER!!!

Don't judge this scent out of the bottle. I got this as a free sample. I picked it based on all the reviews. I just made candles and tarts using Eco Soya CB Advance!! Absolutely amazing cold and hot throw. Hands down the best "pine" holiday scent. I will be making 16oz candle and taking it to my family's house to burn for our thanksgiving and Christmas dinner. The scent makes me feel warm, cozy and excited about the holidays. Great job candle science... please keep this in stock forever. I will be buying a bigger bottle asap!!!

This is IT!

Best Scent I have found so far! I brought this scent, along with 4 other Christmas candles to choose from and this one sold out that day! Its my hot seller for the season!

Amazing again!!

I Had to make CP soap with this scent. It just smells So good OOB!! It behaved like a dream!! Beautiful swirly soap for Christmas!
No discoloration, no acceleration. Perfect.TY!

Best Mistletoe hands down!!

I have been selling Mistletoe from another popular retailer and while it was good, I'm so glad I gave this one a try. It blows the other retailer out the water!! I love it! And if you are into reed diffusers, this scent has taken over two rooms! This is a keeper year round!!

Favorite holiday scent!

I love this scent!!! Best holiday scent! Used 2ounces per pound in comfort blend IGI 4627

Exactly what I wanted..

I had started off my holiday candles with Christmas Hearth. Though I liked it, it wasn't the exact scent I was looking for. This scent was it. If you're looking for a warm home for the holidays with strong pine notes, this is it. Your customers will want more, especially when they see how much scent throw it has, both hot and cold! A keeper for sure!

Absolutely perfect

Happiness in a bottle! New version of this called "Merry Mistletoe type" is a sad impostor, choose this!!!

Love This

I use the 464 wax and this is an excellent holiday fragrance that all my clients love.


Best smell ever! Along with beach linen ;). This was my best seller, and i might buy it for non-holidays as well :)

Great Scent!!

We actually mix this scent with cinnamon stick for a great twist on the scent! Our customers love it!!

Holiday treat

I liked this, but did not love it. I much preferred cinnamon stick or Christmas hearth for a holiday option. Good though, and the ones I made did sell. decent throw in 464

not a strong throw

I sold out very quickly on the Mistletoe. The throw with the GB 464 Soy wax is not an over powering scent but a nice and subtle.

Praise for Mistletoe

I just purchased this fragrance oil for my holiday candles. It turned out beautifully! The scent is gives off a wonderful balance of pines and fruit....the scent is present, but not too overwhelming. I also noted that I can use this fragrance in bath & body as well! What a plus, because I was planning on making bath bombs to compliment my candles. Kudos to candle science, my one stop candle shop!!!!!!!!

Authentic and strong, worthy of any season.

A brisk and refreshing smell that I do not restrict to the winter. I will definitely reorder.

So Refreshing

I love this mistletoe it is the best out there.

Better Than Yankee

This scent is extremely strong and to me is better than yankee brand.

Great Christmas scent

I had a lot of requests for this one. Used it in IGI 1343 pillars. Wonderful hot and cold throw. Evokes memories of past Christmases. This is a strong scent. You might want to reduce the amount of FO that you normally use for your paraffin candles accordingly.


Used it in soy melters. Absolutely wonderful fragrance.

best seller at craft show

Just had a craft show, and this scent out sold everything else. I used it with 6006 in candles, and made 50/50 soy/paraffin tarts. I even left with orders for more. Love this sent.

Smells like Christmas!

This is the best Mistletoe I have found anywhere! Just opening the bottle scents the whole house. I used bayberry dye chips in GB464 soy wax and the result is just amazing! Thanks for another great scent!

mistletoe is for all year long, not just the holidays!

This mistletoe fragrance smells just like the spruce and pine trees in our north Georgia mountain forests...I did not give the products scented with this a holiday name and
it is a favorite ALL YEAR LONG!! A lot of the ladies love it although it is a popular selection for the
gentlemen... the throw in soy wax is fabulous...
THANK YOU Candle Science!!!


My customers love this scent for this time of year. Another hit Candlescience!

Great Christmas scent

I needed some Christmas fragrances that would appeal to those who didn't want all fruity and this is a great choice. The scent description is right on.

Best Mistletoe Ever!

I tested several mistletoe scents and this one was a homerun! Super strong cold and hot throw. Great pine scent. A favorite during the holidays.
