Nordic Night Fragrance Oil
Choose a Variant

Visions of snow-covered pines and arctic winds filled our minds when we created Nordic Night fragrance oil. An outdoor, wintery scent, Nordic Night bottles a winter’s night chill with top notes of eucalyptus and lavender. Resinous pine is at the heart of this scent, and it rests on an herbal, woody base of rosemary, cedar, and oakmoss that performs well in candles and melts. Approved for body scrubs, lotions, and soap, Nordic Night rounds out wintery product lines.

This fragrance oil is infused with natural essential oils including pine, cypress, eucalyptus, cedarwood, cinnamon bark, cardamom, lavandin, rosemary, cade, cistus extract, guaicwood, and clove bud.

Blend recommendations: Very Vanilla, Fireside, Morrocan Cashmere

Alternative branding ideas: Winter, Iced Balsam, Sleigh Ride

Suggested colors: Natural, Midnight Blue, Light Blue

We did not experience any acceleration or separation. The oils and water were slow to reach a light trace and there was no sign of thickening or stiffening as we poured the batter into the mold. After 24 hours we observed the soap only reached a partial gel through the center. We noticed the areas that did gel were weepy. There was a slight pale yellow discoloration and the scent was strong. After 30 days, there was no discoloration and the scent remained strong. We’re not sure why the bars were so weepy after the initial cut but the bars finished nice and hard.

Shocked By Bad Reviews

I have to throw my two sense in here because this scent is absolutely amazing and was a top seller during the winter months and I'm flabbergasted by bad reviews however, different strokes for different folks. I use a soy/paraffin blend wax, as we all know, fragrance oils behave differently in different kinds of waxes and soaps. I had customers request me to keep it on permanently, but I decided to make it a comebacker - give a reason for customers to return in the wintertime for a tried and true and beloved scent. I personally do not love pine scents, I can appreciate a good one I just don't love burning them in my house, yet I love this scent. The eucalyptus really adds a crispness to this scent that smells so crisp and fresh just like a cold winter night...near some freshly cut pine trees. There is 100% pine coming through in this scent too, pine is strong and it's strong in this oil, so if you're sensitive to it or don't like it, be aware. All in all, beautiful scent that seems to be a year-round craving but hands down gorgeous for winter time.

Everyone I’ve given this fragrance loves it!
My neighbors are now using it year round.
I get a request asking for more candles in this fragrance every couple of weeks.

This is another one that I wasn't sure what to expect with it. I guess I was thinking a fresh winters snow. To me it smelled like pinecones. Like fresh off the trees pinecones. Its a good scent, I would absolutely purchase it again now that I know what it smells like.

Wanted This to be Fantastic

I think I can understand what you were trying to do here, but it was a swing and a miss. It actually made one of my kids nauseous. We threw the bottle away. I am sorry to write a bad review, but I want you to do a better job.

Covid nose?

Hi there. I wanted to take a minute and write a post about this fragrance oil. I ordered a bunch of 1oz fall/winter fragrance oils, I'm planning for the holiday season and adding to my growing inventory of scents (100+ FO I work off) I saw a lot of comments about this scent smelling like fish... For the record I know what to expect out of a bottle vs pouring vs cold throw vs hot throw vs curing, ect... I did all this with this fragrance oil, and it still smells like smoked salmon, I live in the Pacific NW and definitely know what fish smells like, I even grew up on a local fish hatchery as a kid. I also had other people smell this scent after cured... Half said it smelled like fish and the other half said it smelled like ozone type, coolish scent and very light. I believe there is definitely a "covid nose" issue here for many of us who smell fish with scent, seriously. I have a large selection of cured candles I've made all with different fo's and this is the only one that hits my olfactory way off. Personal conclusion: Some will smell fish; some will smell no fish at all.

I made a batch of these last year for holiday gifts (named "Sleigh Ride").. I recently found one in the back of my cabinet and fired it up, and WOW, this is absolutely the best winter scent. Amazing throw (~8% in GB 464), perfect branding. Congrats.

I don't like this one

I get ALL of my fragrance oils from CS and always very pleased. I had purchased some really pretty blue vessels and wanted a wintery fragrance. Chose this and whew, I want to burn my house down and start over. It was hard to deal with while brewing and I thought it would be different once the candles have set. But they are still throwing a very pungent and weird smell. I really can't describe it. I try to keep all of my customers happy by providing a variety of aromas. I'm going to have to just give these away and hope someone likes the smell because I don't feel comfy selling. I should've went with blue spruce 😩. Lost money on this run.

This could be branded many different ways. It smells like eucalyptus, a snowy night and a beautiful Christmas tree. It smells expensive. It sells very well also.

Not Fishy at all, think California Adventure, 'Soarin' over California' ride

Not sure about this whole "fishy" thing, I think some of you are suffering from a bad batch, or you have Covid nose. This scent, straight out of the bottle smells like the forest scene in Soarin' over California, at California Adventure Disney Parks. My daughter also pointed out that it smelled like camphor, probably the eucalyptus. I have not made candles yet, but straight out of the bottle I smell pine, camphor, and a sweet-tart scent, like winter berries. No fish.
