Persimmon Citron Fragrance Oil
Choose a Variant

Welcome the New Year with a fragrance oil that symbolizes good luck and transformation, Persimmon Citron. Persimmons and other citrus fruits have a long history of significance in many different cultures. In China, persimmons are given as a symbol of good luck during the New Year. In Korea, and as part of Buddhism, persimmons represent transformation. In Western traditions, an orange was a luxurious, sought-after Christmas gift and remains a common stocking stuffer to this day. Our Persimmon Citron fragrance oil is a nod to this significant, symbolic fruit.

Citron, orange peel, tangerine, and peach compliment the persimmon’s unique citrus scent. This heady, bright fragrance is softened by a base of clove and bamboo. We recommend it year round for an upscale home fragrance in candles, melts and tarts, or use it in lotions, soaps, or bath scrubs.

This fragrance is infused with essential oils, including eucalyptus, palmarosa, clary sage, amyris, lemongrass, black pepper, galbanum, chamomile, and celery seed.

Blends well with: Very Vanilla, Mango and Coconut Milk, Citrus Agave, Cranberry Woods, Macintosh Apple

Alternative branding ideas: Ripe Persimmon, Persimmon and Tangerine

Suggested colors: Orange, Peach

We experienced excessive acceleration and no separation. This came to an emulsion slowly so we continued stick blending hoping to get a nice medium trace. Instead, we felt the dreaded bog of the stick blender that happens when the batter is about to become “soap on a stick”. We quickly removed the stick blender and tried to hand stir it to make sure there were no loose oils. The texture was like thick, mashed potatoes. We plopped the soap into the mold and gave it several hard tamps on the counter then used a spatula to smooth the top. After 24 hours we observed the soap bars almost reached a full gel, just the corners on the bottom were ungelled. The scent was very strong and the bars had discolored to a cream shade. After 30 days the scent was still strong and the bars became a light yellow color. It would be best to hand stir in the fragrance at a very light trace and plan to work quickly.

Amazing citrus smell

Went ahead and got a large bottle of this & I'm so happy I did because it's wonderful OOB and in 464 wax. It's definitely one of my new favorite citrus scents and was super popular with out customers.

Love this scent OOB and in my 464 candle! Great CT and HT! It reminds me of Sweet Tarts!

Not for me BUT...

Personally, I'm not a fan. But the scales tip really quickly for me when it comes to juicy-but-almost-too-intense-scents. Do I like Mediterranean Fig? No, but it scents up the space and others love it. Same with this scent. Do I personally like it? No, yet I kept lighting it and kept appreciating how it scented up the room I placed it in. Even with windows open, the scent was still there. So while it's not a scent I would pick to light, I can see this flying off the shelves with my customers. Bought a little more to see how it tests this holiday season.

Not my favorite citrus

Used for melts with a 10% fragrance load in EcoSoya PB. Great performance with solid HT. Unfortunately, the scent comes off as sharp and screechy to my nose. I am going to try blending with the recommended Very Vanilla and see if that tones it down a bit and makes it a little more usable. I thought maybe this would give another citrus to go to but it's just not for me.

High End

Wonderful fragrance with a high end feel! Could easily be used year round. Clean & citrus goodness. I wasn't really sure what to expect from this one but am pleasantly surprised of how much I like it! This will most definitely make it into my line this season and may keep it around all year! Definitely recommend trying.

Persimmon Perfection

I kinda wish I could eat it, but it's not an actual persimmon, although the scent is undeniable. Perfect complimentary scent notes really bring out the best flavor scents of a ripe and juicy persimmon in the spring.

As always a nice citrus is a must for a well round fall line. I offered the Peppercorn Pomander last fall. I liked it. But I without a doubt LOVE Persimmon Citron. Its not as citrusy and a bit more earthy than Peppercorn Pomander.
