Truthfully, I was hesitant about ordering plumeria because of some of the reviews but the negative reviews are misleading! Plumeria is a fabulous floral scent. I personally think the fragrance is perfumey, sweet, and tangy. I love the floral tones to it and the subtle sweetness that it has. Such a great scent, and very accurate to a plumeria flower fragrance. I recommend ordering it if you’re looking for a floral smell.

Cold Process Soap Performance
Lye Water temperature 110ºF
Oil temperature 116ºF
We did not experience acceleration or separation. The batter was very slow to come to a light trace and was easy to work with. The soap had a light yellow discoloration, and the scent was a little light but pleasant. We did observe almost a full gel with no insulation.
A scent delicate enough for your nose, but still strong enough to fill the room. One of my customers said it's the only floral candle she's ever lit that doesn't make her sneeze within the first few minutes! So many good reviews about this fragrance.
Thanks Candle Science!!
Hello, I first like to say that I love this smell! I can't wait to use it in my candles. I did NOT have a good experience using it in cold process soap making tonight though. I had a beautiful color scheme and was planning on using the pull through method in a column mold, but immediately after adding this FO my batter accelerated and riced on me. :o( There was obviously no time to put my batter into squeeze bottles and layer them into my mold. I instead stick blended them as best I could and threw them into the nearest loaf mold. Hoping for the best, but I have a feeling I'll end up throwing out this entire batch (luckily it was relatively small).
This was especially frustrating because I actually remembered to take the time and read what CS had posted about their CP experience. The post says that they didn't experience any acceleration or separation; for me, that simply wasn't the case. I obviously can't see their recipe, but it was clearly very different from my own.
All of this being said, as I initially stated, i LOVE the scent. I'll still use it in MP soap and in my candles. Just won't attempt it again in CP, which is unfortunate and why I'm rating it only 3 stars.
One of my favorites
I don't think I ever smelled this before but it had good reviews so I thought I would try it. I love the smell. It has a great flowery scent to it.
I like how this smells as a candle, but it also kind of smells like a woman getting a perm, when it's burning. But it also smells floral. It's really strong, and I like it. It's just different.
smells like sweet pea. Great cold and hot throws in candles. Very strong
Plumeria has a strong CT & HT with Golden 464! As a candle maker in Hawaii this is my #1 best seller for all mainland buyers. I highly recommend!
Smells great in 464 wax candes. Tested with CD 12 wick in 3 inch diameter vessel. Great cold and hot throw.
Plumeria smells WONDERFUL!!! But accelerates, rices, and is just plain difficult to work with in CP soap making.
OMG I just made two candles with the sample
I got it’s so amazing I will be testing it but for sure I want to put it on my cart
This scent is excellent. Love the smell when in the bottle and cold. I added the oil at 130 f. And no complaints. Smells like a garden.
I don't know where I'm going with this one. I LOVE the smell out the bottle but when I have tested candles at both higher and lower cooling temps I can't seem to get it to smell like anything once it has cured. I made one 2 days ago and the first day I could smell it. Now that it has cured further I can't smell anything in a cold throw. I've adjusted my FO% between 8-10 and neither way is giving a CT. Any suggestions?
accelerates a lot.
This fragrance oil is fantastic
This is an amazing scent that behaves perfectly well in CP soap and is just a joy to have cure out. The hold has been great (6 mos so far). This scent will be in my lineup for a very long time.
I'm not a fan of florals, but to me this was more of a green floral than a flowery one, if that makes sense. Bright and clean. I mixed this with Egyptian amber and it is really pleasant and grounded. Candles are cooling, will update after curing period.
Excellent hot and cold throw in 464! This one is super floral, which isn't for me personally, but the staff that like floral love this one.
I loved the scent out of bottle. But when I used in CP soapmaking, it riced, separated and accelerated. It didn't smell that great while soaping. Maybe, it will smell better after curing, I have hope for that. But I won't use it again because of ricing and separation.
This scent is beautiful when combined with the right scents. Also beautiful on its own. Very strong which I am a fan of. Please keep around! It smells closer to rose essential oil. I never actually smelled plumeria. But it works perfect for my rose scented blend!
This is my ultimate favorite such a great CT & HT in my wax melts and candles its such a pleasant smell.
Beginner here. Just did a test run on the fo and found issues. Hoping someone can help.
I used 6006 in 8oz tureen jar, 2oz tin jar, and one wax melt container. I used 8% fo and although it smelled nice before the burn test, I found my burn test in 8oz jar and melts were weak and lost its cold throw after 4 hour burn. Why would this happen? any suggestions or answers please
Hi! There can be a few factors that will affect hot throw. We'd recommend adding your fragrance oil at 185°F, allowing the candles and melts to cure for 3-5 days (even up to 2 weeks!), and using a wick compatible with your particular candle recipe. We'd be happy to help troubleshoot further if you'd like to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is a very strong sweet floral and you really don't need to use a lot in a candle. I was mixing it with Sweet Pea--trying to find something else to ground the scent a bit. I am pleased with it overall and don't find it so sweet that it makes me nauseous so there's that.
This is a strong plumeria scent and it’s perfect to the real thing! Love it! Haven’t found a plumeria FO as great as this one
I LOVE this scent, but it caused significant acceleration of trace in both the batches I used it in.
This one is sweet but it has always been a best-seller. I will admit I miss the old formulation but this is very, very close. OOB the difference was less obvious to me as once I had it in wax it was like old times.
I am new to candle making but already love it (I've made 3 so far- LOL). With trying different frangrance oils I thought I'd love this but it is SO sweet it makes me nauseous. If all the scents I ordered this by far smells much stronger, which I imagine may be a good thing in an actual candle but I can't even bring myself to use it because of the smell- to me it smalls like sugar syrup and funeral flowers (my husband even told me not to open the bottle again in the house!). I think I'm actually going to just toss it. Very disappointed...
This scent is just okay. It's a little too much for my taste. I planned to mix it with White Tea, but it's so strong it just absorbs any scent you try to mix it with. I probably won't use the full bottle and won't reorder it again. Note: I used it for soy candles, but it might be nice for soap.
I love this scent, mix it with many others since I can't get enough of it.
SUCH A SWEET, CLEAN FLORAL SCENT. Will be adding this to my line pretty soon!
Many people love this scent
