Love This

I am torn between which I love best. Oak Moss & Amber or just Oak Moss. I can't stop smelling either. I will say that Oak Moss has a slight edge, but do love them both.


Love This

I just made 4 12 oz jar candles and they smell really good. I use GB 464 soy wax and they came out pretty darn good. Heated wax to 180-185 F. Added color and FO. Then 130 F cool down, then stir 2 minutes and pour. I can't wait to get these to the flea market this weekend. Especially after that cure for 5 days. The HT should be really good.


Smells so good

Could smell this all day!


Another winning one for men

This one smells so nice, and sells really good as well. Between this one and the Black Sea, they go fast. The oak moss is a little stronger scent, imo, but some men like stronger smells. Another great one I will keep buying as well. :)


Love this scent

Bought the sample size of this to make some body products but before I could use it my husband stole it to use as his daily cologne. We both love this scent!


Unusually good

Intoxicating fragrance that almost smells like a really good men's cologne. Men and women both liked it a lot and it is selling well

Candle artist

A bit too strong

I can definitely see why this scent could be a hit among male customers, however I only used it at 3-4% with 464 and it gave me quite the headache. Regardless, nice and strong if that's what you are into.


This candle smells amazing hot or cold!!! Can't wait to make more to stock on my shelves!


This fragrance is a winner!
Great hot / cold throw in soy wax.


Best scent yet!!

oh my goodness!! I am in love with this scent, I only bought a 4oz bottle to try but I am going to make this a regular, im hoping my customers love it as much as I do!!

First whiff out of the bottle was amazing. So intrigued by this unisex fresh earthy scent. I know this is a popular scent so I tried to make my own version by combining 2 Amber FOs with a small amount of Meadow FO. It was extremely close but I went back to just using the Oak Moss Amber FO by itself for my soy candles. It's the only FO that I don't combine with another FO or even an Essential oil to create a unique candle. It's that good on it's own. One of the best cold and hot throws. I want to experiment combining it with a floral like Golden Rose FO. So fun to get creative with oils from Candlescience.

Out of 6 testers, this was a favorite of the samples I bought. Appealed to both men and women.


Pleasantly Surprised!

I ordered this during the $.99 cent sale and I'm glad I did! Thought it would be too similar to the Egyptian Amber but it's not!! It's just the right amount of perfume thrown in. Love it!


My husband loves this scent!

I ordered this scent with your $.99 sample sale since it got rave reviews, and this did not disappoint! I had made the candles in my palm wax and couldn't wait to test it out! When my husband got home from work he was raving about how great this scent was and that this is by far his favorite scent I have made! Then he kept talking about it all night! Lol! It has a nice scent throw but not overpowering, which is s good thing! It definitely has a cologne/perfume type scent to it but both feminine and masculine. This would be the perfect candle to give both male and female as a gift!


The Men Like It

This fragrance is really nice. Not only do the men like it but so do the women. My husband wanted to make sure that he got a bar of soap before I sold the rest. I used 1/2 ounce for 1 pound of Oatmeal and Shea Melt and Pour Soap.


This was the first scent I purchased from this company and I LOVE it! Exactly what I was hoping it would be and more!!

Absolutely Wonderful

Hands down, this is everyone's favorite scent!


Best seller!

Everyone loves this scent. Everyone wants this scent. They all say it smells like a sexy man. It smells like cologne, it smells like abercrombie, etc...

Bc it's so popular I rename it. Ive come across several different brands using this scent and they all call it "oakmoss & amber". Renaming it gives it uniqueness and makes customers think that you developed it on your own. I do a fair amount of mixing in my line but this oil is perfect by itself!

Steven B

Best Seller

This has become my best seller by far. If you really want to to wow your customers, mix in a little Egpyian Amber with it and watch it fly off the shelves

My Big Fat Greek Candle


I ordered 8oz based on the 5 star ratings... And WOW... you guys are all right, this scent is amazing! I made a CP soap today with a pale orange color. The last I saw, the soap was gelling just perfectly. I can't wait to unmold and cut tomorrow!

Paul @coXistence soaps

Very nice

Wonderful, unique scent. I'd give it 5 stars if it just held up in cold process soap a little stronger and I used the max amt of 1 oz for a lb of oils and butters. Cold process doesn't go easy on a lot of scents, though. It moves a bit fast, nothing terrible if you just pay close attention, and discolored a green batch kind of tannish. But I really do like it.

A. Halloran

Wow! Love it!

This is my favorite so far from CS. I'm just starting out, and have only bought a handful of fragrances from CS but this one is a winner! Woodsy, sensual, masculine, yet as a woman I love it, and would definitely have a house that smells of this!



One of my favorites. You really knocked it outta the park with this one, CS. This scent is sweet, grassy, warm, woodsy - it's just intoxicating.



All I can say is YUP- this is it. Warm, sensual, woodsy, creamy, rich, neither masculine or feminine.... all the things I am aiming for in a candle. Thanks, CS!


Amazing when lit!

I was a little hesitant with this right out of the bottle. It was a little too pungent for my liking but it mellowed so well in GB464 and had really good scent throw out of a jelly jar at 10%. Can't wait to try the throw in a larger jar!

Silvergrove Scentsations

Wonderful scent

This is my favorite scent. Amazing warth to it. I use it in soap, body butter, lotion bars, bath bombs. I love mixing it with Oatmeal, Milk, & Honey scent. Makes my mouth water.



This is the number one seller for men and women with my wax melts. I can't keep it in stock.


Surprisingly wonderful

I have never been a fan of Amber so I never ordered this fragrance. I placed an order recently and looking at the reviews I decided to give it a try and... I love it! It is perfect for a masculine or feminine fragrance and I can see myself using it in my body products too. This will now be a definite on my list of fragrances I carry!


Cannot get enough!

I cannot get enough of this scent. If you have not smelled it, definitely give it a try. It's my favorite and my friends and customers love it too!


Great scent in soap

Works beautifully in CP soap, no discoloration, smells divine and sticks well.


Strong & Lovely Hot/Cold Throws in CB Advanced Soy!

This is a truly gorgeous scent! I agree with the other reviewers that it smells like a high-end cologne! I've had great reception from customers with this fragrance as well!

Hilary @CascadiaCandleCo

I keep one of these in my bedroom and can't get enough

Fantastic throw both hot and cold. I keep a soy candle of this fragrance in my bedroom and love getting whiffs of it. It's been there for a month now and I still haven't gotten tired of of the scent! Great balance between masculine and feminine.


This is one of my TOP SELLERS!! The Amber scent is fabulous but this is even better! LOVE LOVE LOVE this scent!

James & Theresa


This scent is just amazing!! I buy it by the pounds!! Both men and women love it! It soaps like a Dream, does not discolor and the
scent sticks!! What's not to love? :)

Valerie K.

Love it!

I used this mixed with Drakkar type to make an amazing smelling cologne for my husband. Totally smells like a hot guy :)


Good Scent Throw

Very intriguing. It smells like a hot guy! My younger customers buy this one, probably to attract the opposite sex. They say the smell gets them "excited". I can picture burning these candles at houtie toutie Hollywood parties.


Amazingly Amazing!

I instantly fell in love with this scent! It's hard to describe, amber and woodsy. Did I mention amazing?


Good but not for everyone

I got a 1 oz. sample of this fragrance a while back and didn't think the scent would work very well in a candle (too colonge-y for my candle preferences), but I thought I'd try lightly fragrancing some CP soap with it, which I did like. However, later, my friends had me smell one of their B&BW Mahogany Teakwood scented candles and asked if I could make something similar, and I have to say, this fragrance is a bit stronger but so similar! I instantly knew how I could use the rest of this FO, so I made a GB464 candle for them, which they loved (even better than the one I made with FO from another company that was designed to be a B&BW imitation fragrance), so I guess the scent is good but just not for me.

Green and Strong

This was the first scent that gave me a strong hot throw in EcoSoya CB135 so I'm very fond of it ;o) The scent is hard to describe- very green, earthy, and at one point I was a little overwhelmed and thought it might smell like a man's cologne but it doesn't have that cologne note that gives me a headache, if you know what I mean. It's a unisex fragrance that can work well in a spa line. I use 1oz/lb but could get away with less.



I bought this as some customers wanted more than my flowery or fruity scents. When we received the shipment my daughter and I opened the bottle we fell in love with it. We had only bought a 1 oz bottle to try it and was ticked we didn't buy a bigger one. My 3 candles sold immediately and people loved it so I reordered a large bottle. I used GB464 1oz per pound and love the scent!! This one is going to be a big seller for us.

Men's Cologne

I personally wouldn't burn this in my house, but I'm not a fan of the masculine scents. This smells just like cologne to me, but not cheap. People love it.



This is such a unique smell. It's hard to explain but I will try. It is musky/earthy (masculine) and sweet/rich (feminine) but that really doesn't do this scent justice. It's just lovely and the really cool thing about this is that near the candle source, it smells more manly but in the next room over, you pick up the sweeter womanly scent. Very cool indeed. Almost like having to smells in one. Gave one to my sister. She and her husband really liked this one very much, and they are both pretty picky. She said she wanted a bigger one next time. I add more then the recommended amount of FO in all my candles and I use GB 464 and ecosoya CB 135.

Christina K

OMG this is awesome!

Bought some based on a review and am so glad I did. this is a best seller for soap! It smells so great that I am constantly taking a soap from stock and putting it in the shower. This fragrance is great for both men and women and I cannot make soap fast enough to keep it stocked! If I could add a couple more stars I would for this scent!


A Big Seller

My customers absolutely adore this in a bath soak. I plan to try it in cold process soap.

Yours Bath & Body

High end but not for me

Unfortunately this reminded me of a men's cologne that a friend ( who wears nice colognes) gave me a hug and I just smelled his cologne the rest of the day. Ack! And I couldn't get rid of it. I am sure it is a popular scent, but too strong for me.


Mr. Toad's House of Wax

I love this scent! It's warm and inviting yet complex. The amber is so intoxicating.
A great selection for a fall winter collection. Sometimes you want something a little different fir the ordinary, well, this scent fits the bill!


Love, love, love it

Did my very first expo at the Jacob Javitz in NY this past weekend and it was loved by all. I'll be pouring a lot more candles with this scent for my next show. Can't get enough of it.


Oakmoss &amp; Amber

I absolutely adore this scent!!! Perfect amount of Oakmoss and amber resins!! My customers love it! Cant rave enough.



Out of all the fragrances I bought so far this one is definitely my ultimate favorite for a first time candle maker



This is a very nice smell! The strongest amber scent for sure. It has a very strong hot throw and a great cold throw. This scent is a favorite at my house. Anyone thinking of purchasing this scent, DO IT! it's a winner for sure. Doesn't really smell earthy to me like other people say it does but I love it none the less. GREAT JOB Candle Science.

Very Unique and Pleasant Smell

I received this fragrance oil as a free pick and i have to say i will order and start making candles with this oil. It has a very unique smell not too strong and not light at all. It is like fantasy in a bottle...


Definite CP Keeper

Just CP Soaped this at Room Temperature. My menfolk love the scent! My son, a known 'understater', actually had a positive reaction to the scent! Soaped wonderfully.


cant keep it on the shelf

Ever since I introduced this earthy, clean, fragrance in my soy candles I can't keep it in stock as soon as I bring it in it flies!! It smells great, women and men alike enjoy it. This is a strong woodsy blend that has awesome cold and hot throw.


Favorite So Far

Very unique and earthy. This one will be in my line year round.



This scent is hard to describe but is absolutely amazing. It's a little earthy, woodsy yet still soft. I used it in my tallow soap and have nothing but rave reviews on the scent. Definitely one of my favorites.



I use this scent at 1 1/2 ounce per pound in IGI 4627. Hot and cold throw is excellent. This scent is unisex but most of the women I have come across feel it is more masculine but nonetheless love it. I gave some of these candles as gifts last year. When people read the label "Oakmoss and Amber" I got a special look, but when they smelled it they were all smiles. My wife wanted me to use a different name but I feel CS has done a fantastic job naming their scents.


Lovely! Unisex!

This is such a nice scent. It can be manly or unisex. Holds up well in cp soap, even at 0.5oz ppo. Highly recommend this one.


Huge Hit!!

This is the most incredible scent! I suggest this scent to men and they love it. However, it is a good scent for men and women both!!



Wonderful strong, clean, masculine fragrance! So far it has been one of my top sellers.



The scent description is right on. Absolutely love it in CP soap. Very soft fragrance not overpowering! So far it is sticking, but has only been 6wks of cure. Awesome FO!


great scent!

so far, testing really well in soy candles, and also made a batch of cold process soap that smells amazing.


In the botle review

I will post another review once I pour this, however, I could not wait to share with everyone what a wonderful fragrance this is. Now this is a high end fragrance. Just what I have been looking for to add to my line. Order a sample. You have to smell it to believe it!
