I took a chance on Peppercorn a year ago & WOW! My customers (male & female) absolutely love Peppercorn. I use it in my Aroma Ornaments & I can’t keep them in stock, the scent is beautiful & relaxing. I started making triple batches of tarts & candles last spring due to demand. When I burn a Peppercorn candle in my booth during events, I’d better be prepared to sell out that day, it definitely brings the customers in! My #1 scent! Thank you CandleScience for another amazing scent!!

Pepperocorn Pomander

My very favorite scent!

I'm in love!

This scent is so beautiful and different! It throws amazing in 464 with a CD12 wick. I can't wait to order a bigger bottle. I'm trying to think of a cool name for this scent! And I'm wanting to carry this all year long. It's so lovely!!!

Cedar House Candles
Coconut Wax

I love scent! It's a lovely smell that I think would appeal to most. However, after months of testing (and multiple wicks) I can't get a HT with coconut wax. Maybe it works better with other types of waxes, but I would take caution if you use only coconut wax.

Holiday perfection

Sweet, spicy, universally liked. Excellent with 1oz for 1 lbs of 444 soy wax.

Peppercorn Pomander big hit

This scent surprised me. The throw is wonderful with a very unique scent. My customers love this!


This has been a favorite since I first tried it. I’ve made soap and candles and both have been a hit! This week I added some clove oil when making candles and it is THE perfect holiday scent now! I will use the original year round and then add different spice scents in for the holidays. I’m ordering cedar oil today to mix!


This is a scent for people who don't usually like scented candles. It's not fruity, it's not bakery, it's not floral, it's not perfumey, it's not masculine or feminine. It's just fresh orange zest with notes of spice. Most people can pick out the orange note at first, and keep sniffing to identify the other scents. It's been a favorite this fall and winter!

Very nice

I really like this Peppercorn Pomander. I love the smell of a freshly peeled orange, and though this isn't quite the same, it smells very nice. It definitely has an orangey scent, and slightly sweet, but not overly. It's strong enough to scent a large room, but also works in a smaller room. I've had candles that I could not burn for very long because they are so strong and irritating, but this is not one of them. I can smell it, but it doesn't give me a headache or irritate my throat. I used this FO in IGI 4630 wax. I made a 3 wick candle using the Candle science guide for the 3 wick, and it's perfect. Melts the wax to the edge of container and smells wonderful. T


My customers LOVE this FO.


Smell Exactly like Fruit Punch and I love it

Ashton Cooper

I was intrigued & excited when I originally smelled a candle that had been made with this FO. When I bought the FO & went to work on candles & wax melts, I was disappointed. It smelled like I was making tons & tons of orange jello!!! After that I didn’t like it so much. I really love the description & concept. I wish it smelled more like a Pomander or even more like Peppercorns. It would be awesome with a bit of revision.

Not what I expected

Based on the description, I was really hoping for an upscale scent to add to my line-up. And while this scent is good, it misses the mark. It smells EXACTLY like fruit punch.

Love, love, LOVE!!

This is an absolute winner in my wax melts! I run out of stock every time I re-stock it! Please don’t change it....EVER!!

Anna Ankrum

I love this! It does smell like citrus and spice, when burning!

Client Favorite

We are very happy with this scent! Our clients love it, we can’t keep our car aroma ornaments in stock in this scent!

Tammy Jones

This has me in Holiday mode. I knew i would like it-and I do, Holiday or not

Yum !

My customers love this!! It definitely is more orange than Spice. It's lovely!!

midwest momma

We have tested and used many many Candlescience scents (close to 20?) and mostly like all of them. I understand everyone has different tastes, it makes the world fun. But this scent was a big miss. It is strong, (which I like) but it smells nothing like peppercorn or pomander. I was hoping for an upscale spice with citrus notes and this does not deliver. At all. After much sniffing I realized it smells like fruit punch. Like, Wedding shower bright red fruit punch. Not a fan.

Great scent!

I got wonderful throw with this scent in soy. Didn't get much peppercorn but lots of citrus goodness that filled the room. I was very pleased with this one.

Was so hoping to love this

I'm honestly a bit surprised by the positive reviews, as I simply don't think this scent captures the essence of a pomander at all. I was so hoping to love it, as I wanted to make a Christmas scent that smelled like my go-to Christmas tree, which has dried orange slices, clove, cinnamon, etc on it. This to me just smells like a fresh orange/citrus scent. I don't get any of the spices whatsoever.


It reminded me of the candy starburst

In LOVE with Peppercorn Pomander

This smells so amazing! I made a small batch and the next morning the beautiful fragrance was still in the air. My new Fave. Thank you Candlescience!

Perfect fall scent

Great cold and hot throw. Used this in my coconut wax and love it. It smells like orange and spices.


Purchased a sample bottle of this fo so glad I did smells amazing fingers crossed for this to be my number 1 fall seller


Way to sweet orange with an ending tone of musk. It was so gross!


This scent smells awesome. Just made a couple candles and a few tarts with it. If the finished product smells anywhere near as good as my house does right now, this is most definitely a winner


This is the perfect fall fragrance!!!! The throw is excellent in paraffin. A perfect orange cinnamon type fragrance.

Awesome work CS!

I have to say I was a little apprehensive with this scent right OOB, but I made a sample candle just for fun, and so glad I did! It’s an amazing upscale scent with awesome CT and HT. It’s a great addition to my line up. Thank you!!

This is a really sophisticated scent, and it just might be my new favorite! I love the touch of fall spice, I think it has both masculine and feminine appeal.


Strong and fresh orange scent with hints of something spicy. Nice zesty orange scent with a strong throw that I can't wait to add to our line!
