Beautiful blend of Peppermint with a touch of chocolate

Please bring this scent back!! It was one of my holiday favorites and staple. Peppermint Mocha doesn't hold a candle to Peppermint Bark. Pun intended ;)


LOVE it!

Wow, I really didn't want to like this, but instead I LOVE IT! Oh my gosh, this is going to be a good Christmas!



Peppermint Bark smells like real and scrumptious candy on its own, but I love to mix it with a wide variety of fragrances. It can transform from a mouthwatering edible scent to a woodsy soothing scent. It’s perfect!


very artificial

Chocolate peppermint is one of my favorite scents. I was disappointed by this one though. It has a very chemical peppermint scent with barely any chocolate to it. When the candle is blown out and the scent disappears it also has a weird almost floral scent also. Glad I only purchased the 1oz trial size.



I make lots of peppermint bark for Christmas gifts and this FO truly captures the aroma of breaking the bark apart! It's not just strong peppermint. You can actually smell the sweet, creamy chocolate combined with the peppermint. One of my personal favorites around the Holidays and a customer favorite as well.


Very light

I love peppermint bark, and was excited to try a pre-blended option instead of blending it myself. This smells nice, but it is very very faint. If I was smelling it without knowing what it was I'm not sure I would be able to guess peppermint bark. It doesn't seem to stand on its own well enough to be blended, so I'll probably use it as a background scent and boost it with more peppermint and chocolate.



I used this 1oz to 1lb with a 50/50 blend of beeswax and IGI 4630 Harmony Blend. The scent was hardly detectable once the wax cooled and, after two weeks, the scent is completely gone.

Just Bee Candles and More

Smelled Decent

I made five, 14 oz candles with this scent. So far I like it for the most part. It has a peppermint smell but is really no where near what I imagined it to smell like. I think my customers will be pleased with this smell.

I love it !!!!

I don't really like peppermint, reminds me of the candies that I get sick of during the holidays. This is totally different, it really smells like a desert you would have at Christmas. It has a nice cold and hot throw. I used 1 ounce to 1 pound of soy wax. I made half of my candle white and the other half Christmas red dye chips. I am hoping that it will sell well this holiday.


I really liked this alot. Great cold and hot throw. It is a very long lasting scent. I put one ounce per pound of soy wax 464.


Fragrance faded in CP

I had originally said this FO was great and gave 5 stars. Love how it behaved in CP soap. My only problem is the scent faded almost completely. I used 1.5%.


Used in CP soap

Made a CP soap today using this FO. Smells great out of the bottle. Didn't accelerate trace, no ricing or seizing. I will cut the soap tomorrow. I can't wait to see how the cured soap is. Will report back if the scents fades or causes discoloration.


My Absolute Favorite!

I ordered this last year to give it a try and I literally couldn't wait until this winter to start burning it again! I get so many compliments on it while it's burning and when it's just sitting on the counter!


Loved this Scent

Loved!!!! This scent, it performed very well in my Soy 464 wax. Customers love this scent, I can't keep it in stock!

Home in a Jar Candles

Love it.

I bought this fragrance oil. I love it on its own, but I mixed it with another oil from another company. I use IGI 4627 wax. Together this combination is amazing. I have had amazing feedback from customers. I am about to buy it again!

Earth Girl Candles

Made me ill

I was so excited for this scent. Peppermint Bark is my favorite and i was hoping it would be a great candle scent for the holidays. I was wrong. Initially i liked the scent. It was strong but ok. Well when i mixed it with my wax i could barely stay in the same room. I made 1 candle and it is horrible. I instantly get a headache and become nauseous. I just can't use it!


This was an okay scent, and performed pretty good in GB 464. Too much chocolate for my taste.

The Burning Mitten

Personal Fav!

This is one of mine and my wife's personal favorites. However, people seem to either love it or hate it. I think it's a great bathroom scent. Makes a great Christmas / Winter addition and it sells pretty well for me.

Peppermint bark fragrance

In all the bad comments written of this product not once did you say which type of wax you were using. That is your problem. You need to use a soy based wax. Soy wax always gives you an excellent cold and hot throw!!!!
I have customers who complement me on the wonderful cold/hot throw. It's because I always use soy based candle wax. This name brand " glade candles " are as close to what I put out. It's the soy, ladies and gentlemen.

Try it!


decoration only

This has awesome cold throw but the hot throw has a lot left to be desired.
I used 1oz for 1lb of paraffin wax. I let the candle burn for over 4 hours and couldn't smell a thing.
I would pass on this one unless all you want is a decoration candle.


Pleasantly Surprised

I am not a fan or peppermint or peppermint bark but I was looking for a good holiday scent and this one is it. I made two test candles with 13 oz of 464 with 1 oz of fragrance and the cold throw is amazing! Hot throw was a bit disappointing but I am overall really pleased with the fragrance and the scent payoff. You can definitely smell the chocolate, vanilla and peppermint. Its is lovely.

I really like this scent. I wish it were stronger.I used it in cp soap. It riced slightly and discolored a little bit. It made a lovely soap but it faded over time.


no hot or cold throw

I think this smells a little like Vicks personally. Out of the bottle I wasn't very impressed. It had a medicinal smell and I didn't smell the chocolate at all. But it still wasn't necessarily a bad smell just not one I was in love with. So I used IGI 6006 and the max load is 1 2/3 oz/lb I believe but since this FO was strong enough to make my eyes water out of the bottle I stuck with what seems to be the average 1 oz/lb. It smelled absolutely amazing as the candles were setting and I got my hopes up but now I've lit one I'm sad to say I got almost no cold or hot throw. I'm new to candle making so it could just be my inexpertise but to anyone trying out this FO I definitely recommend adding more than normal. I however probably will not be repurchasing this particular scent.


Andes mints

I am so surprised by the bad reviews on this fragrance! I've ordered this twice, once last winter and again this year, and the product has smelled amazing both times. I am using gb 464 at 1oz/lb and have great cold and hot throw. I love to light this one while I'm studying because the fresh smell keeps me feeling alert and doesn't give me a headache. This year I tried to combine it with "fresh coffee" to get a peppermint mocha type scent, but the peppermint totally overwhelmed the coffee, even though I used more coffee than peppermint in the mix. It still same out smelling great though; it smells just like Andes mints. I don't find this to be a synthetic or plasticy scent at all-- if you're on the fence, I'd say get a small bottle and give it a try :)


Love this scent. I used it in c.p. soap. It discolored slightly but was very easy to work with and made a very pretty bar.


Peppermint bark

Ordered to use as a candy scent but it smells like peppermint SOAP. Good smell but a waste of money - and not my fault since it's advertized as "Our Peppermint Bark fragrance oil combines the irresistible aroma of dark chocolate with mint essential oil to create a "true to life" scent of this much-loved winter candy."
Great if you want to make soap.


Loved the Scent...When I Held My Nose Up To It

I loved the scent for this. It smelled very accurate to me when I smelled it. However, after adding to 16oz of my Ecosoya CB 135, I noticed little to no hot or cold throw despite this having a soy rating of 3. Maybe it was just me, but my girlfriend and I could barely smell it.


not peppermint bark - dissapointment

I had high hopes based on earlier reviews of this product but it was a HUGE dissapointment. Literally smells like mold. I get not one drop of good scent from this one and it is something I cannot sell so a big waste of money.



I used GB 464. This had very poor hot and cold throw. I detect very little chocolate. I mainly detect a weird peppermint smell. It smells like some kind of strange peppermint perfume. I won't re-order this one.


Love this scent

This smells delicious. One of my new favorite Christmas scents. I use 6006 wax and it smells wonderful, everyone that I gave a candle to loved it! Next, I am going to try M and P soap with this, I am sure it will be a winner. I cannot get enough of this scent.



Used with GB 464 wax. Smells just like peppermint Bark! Better hot throw, then cold!



In my previous post I meant white chocolate, not vanilla. sorry


Pretty good, but could be better.

I used GB 464 soy with this scent. Throws stronger hot than cold, but overall not that strong. Creamy vanilla and a nice sweet peppermint(although it has a slight "menthol" smell to it I dont care for). It could be a bit stronger, but smells pretty good.


YUM YUM I almost ate it!

This scent is DELICIOUS! I could almost eat it! Great scent throw hot and cold.



I picked this scent on a whim for my free sample, and WOW...definitely buying again. Mint is the strongest scent, but the sweet, smooth white chocolate makes it truly unique. I look forward to experimenting with coffee scents to find that perfect white peppermint mocha candle!


Fantastic scent!

I love this scent and have added it to my scent list. It smells so good and burns fine in GB444. Good choice!

Paulina Buncic

Awesome throw!

In 464 soy wax this fragrance has really strong throw!


Strong Peppermint!

Thought it would have a bit more sugar to it, but still smelled very good and very strong of peppermint essential oil. I used comfort blend wax.
