Red Currant- Bold HT and CT. An amazing fragrance that lingers. I usually add 1.5oz per pound of wax. This FO you need only 1oz/lb. Great scent.

Very nice scent

I am testing a candle and it's only been curing for 5 days but there isn't a strong scent throw on in. I used 464 and 1 ounce per pound. Poured at 185.


I like it! It's very refreshing and fruity!

Red Currant in CP

I love this fragrance. Has anyone used this fragrance in cold process soap?


I love this fragrance very much. It is my all time favorite!!!!

To a tee!

After trying dozens of CS fragrances this is my all time favorite! The quintessential red currant scent that you'd find by high end candle I can finally make my own!

Wish it had more of a punch!

This is a very accurate red currant and smells just like the very first red currant candle I ever smelled at a store in the mall a long time ago. I made a 10 ounce candle with .5 FO and the hot throw was just ok in my opinion. I really wish it was stronger and had more of a punch to it. I noticed that the hot throw got a little stronger after storing the candle away in a closet for a month or so, but it was still not strong enough for my liking. If the red currant smell was a little sharper and more pronounced this would be a winner with me.

A little too florally...

Wish it had a hint more "berry" scent - the floral notes made it smell a little too much like potpourri for my taste. Might be good if mixed with another berry or earthy/woodsy fragrance.

Not as strong as the rating...but great smell

Its a great smell however not as strong as the rating indicates. I definitely like it tho.


A beautiful aromatherapy fragrance. Nice and strong in GW464 and EcoSoya PB.
