Good but reminds me of my ex

This scent is pretty decent for candles, but it's not one I'll keep going back too as there are better scents out there.

Sink Holes

Used this scent in GB 464 and they all had major sink holes compared to the rest of the scents we've been using.
Love the scent, but not pleased with the pour.

Love it, but....

Love, love, LOVE this scent. It's cold throw is so calming and relaxing, and the hot throw is even better. It would have been a 5 star scent for me, but unfortunately it isn't phthalate free so I won't be adding it to my collecting. Total bummer!

This scent is doing really well in my shop! I'll order again :)

Awesome Scent

I absolutely love this fragrance and so do my customers, it makes for some truly amazing candles. I've only used it in paraffin so far but plan on testing it with soy soon, hopeful for good results.

I'd like to point out that it is NOT for use in soaps due to the presence of Phthalates in it which has been linked to birth defects, asthma, and fertility issues. It's not worth putting your customer's health at risk for a good smelling soap.

Check your indicated usage!!!

Gorgeous scent! Remember it's not indicated for use in soap.I'm seeing reviews about using this in soap and the usage plainly says "Candles only". You are putting your customers at risk by not following instructions.


This is a lovely scent in every way. It smells awesome in soap. HOWEVER, it does rice and accelerate trace. If you are going to use this in soap, but it in at the lightest possible trace and then try to blend out the ricing. It would be hard to swirl this soap or do anything of that sort. Awesome for candles though! Great Scent!

Clean, Neutral Scent

This scent is a nice, fresh, clean sent. I agree with another reviewer that it is great for a spa scent or line. It is popular among my customers--it gets great reviews and is frequently ordered year-round! I use GB 464.

Beautiful and strong!

I love this scent! It's so fresh and flowery. It's also one of the strongest ones I've poured yet! It filled my house with this summery fragrance!

Like the scent, but...

This fragrance smells beautiful in my CP soap. Not over-powering, nice and subtle. Beware, however, this does accelerate the soap! Ricing happens and you will need to move fast! Do NOT use a water discount with this fragrance.


The scent is very nice but not too strong. Enough only to fill a big size bathroom. Used GB 464 Eco#10 wic

Good scent, weak throw.

The scent smells good, but only a few feet from the candle. The cold and hot throw were both very limited. If that was improved, I would reorder.

Amazing Scent

I live this scent and it smells so beautiful.

Totally Luv It!

Without a question A Keeper! Palm wax used Thanks CS

Great Scent

Great scent. Very strong.

My best seller

This is a terrific scent. Everyone who smells it likes it. Do give it a try!

Best Scent Ever

I made a candle and started to burn it and was blown away by how strong and beautiful it is.


Lily is the main note and it is WONDERFUL! Very clean and fresh. Great hot and cold throw!


Fantastic fragrance, very spa like. Is popular with both genders. Way to go CS!

Another 5 star fragrance

Great scent throw in soy. Again poured this morning & burning this afternoon. Strong cold & hot throw with short cure time. Wonderful year around scent.

Can't say enough!

Everyone that has smelled this in a candle has LOVED it! In fact, I just got 6 orders for candles for this scent from 3 different people today. I happen to love it as well and find that it suits both genders.
