We experienced a moderate amount of acceleration but no separation. We used our stick blender in 30 second increments until we reached a light trace. After a quick hand stir to confirm trace the batter began thickening and turned bright yellow. As we poured the batter into the mold we could see that it was still slowly thickening. We gave the mold a firm tamp on the counter which helped settle the soap into the mold but the top had to be smoothed with a spatula. After 24 hours we observed the soap only reached a partial gel and the outer edges discolored to a dark brownish yellow while the center remained yellow. The scent was strong. After 30 days, the soap had discolored to a tan shade. We did have some soda ash on the top that turned yellow. The scent was strong and true.

Great HT at 10% 50/50 beeswax, coconut oil. Unfortunately, as open as my mind is, the smell is just nauseating. Like a gross 100% artificial flavor candy. Not a bit of pine. I saw some people say it smells like pinesol. I WISH that were true. Highly doubt I'd buy again.

Familiar Scent

Used 7% in 464 soy wax candles. This smells exactly like the green tree-shaped car air fresheners (which I love).

This one was tricky

I at first had problems with this FO but, because the smell was to die for, I kept at it. FO smells like authentic, fresh pine with a touch of earthiness. When I tried adding it to soy (Freedom Soy) and para-soy (Freedom-Pro Blend 400) with many different wicks types, there was always a great CT but almost no HT, and I was picking up the scent of the wax instead. I tried a new para-soy wax and at first I thought there was no HT and I was picking up the wax scent again, but my family kept insisting the HT was there. I decided to wait around in the test room and after 60 seconds I started picking up the HT. Waited another 2-3 mins and now I can't believe I couldn't smell the Pine from before, and that smell that I thought was wax, vanished. The pine HT is definitely more mild versus the punch-you-in-the-face scent you get right out of the bottle, but that makes sense since the bottle is highly concentrated. I think I was comparing the out-of-the-bottle aroma too much with the actual candle aroma, and that's why I kept thinking there was no HT. Honestly, if a candle had the same concentrated smell as the bottle, people would probably gag and think they were smelling pine-sol. Here is my final notes: Paraffin-soy blend wax, ECO-16 wick, 3 inch diameter jar, 10% FO, 2 week cure time.

Update to previous review

I wanted to provide an update to my previous 5-star review. I originally rated it 5 stars based on my own personal opinion of this since I was using Christmas Tree originally. I was nervous to see a revision but relieved that they both smell very similar.

I've been using this in place of Christmas Tree for several months and a few of my customers have noted that the candle not only smells the same, but that it is stronger and the scent lingers longer after the candle has been blown out. I'm very happy with the change!

Not as expected but love it

Has strong fruity sweet smell but I think it smells lovely. Definitely a clean outdoor scent especially if paired with blue spruce

Not a good scent at all!

My favorite fragrance from candle science of all time was the pine cones fragrance. This mountain pine fragrance not only falls exceedingly short of my expectations, but my customers are not a fan. Please bring back the Pine cones scent!

So I bought this because Fraser Fir was out of stock and I needed to get some Christmas candles made asap. Well it doesn't smell like Pine to me and it's sweet which really surprised me. I'm not crazy about it but my husband loves it! So we will see.

Great fresh pine scent

Smell is a funny thing & I was worried Mountain Pine would be bad based on the older reviews. I listened to the 1 5-star review instead and I'm so glad I did. First, spent the last several winters working on a farm that sold fresh-cut Christmas trees. I came home every day smelling like pine sap & pulling pine needles out of my hair. I know the smell of fresh pine very well. Out of bottle, the fresh pine scent is there but a bit questionable. In wax it is PERFECT. I don't detect any pine-sol or other cleaning product and I know the pine-sol scent very well too. My grandmother used gratuitous amounts of it in her house (even on the walls!) and I spent my summers there. I don't get even a hint of that from this fragrance. Just fresh cut pine - needles & sap. I use these in wax melts and my customers love to buy it for sachets to hide in their fake trees.

Almost as good as replacement

I love it and my customers love it. From the bottle it has a funny smell however in my candles & wax melts you cannot tell the difference between this and the Christmas tree fragrance
