Wonderful fragrance like real ginger.

Wonderful fragrance smell like real ginger,I use in my soap and smell delicious.

LOVE this fragrance!!

By far, my favorite!

Amazing Scent

This is an exotic and elegant FO to work with. Has a great cold and hot throw. I mix this scent with 2 other FO from CS. It needs a softer base FO and a touch of a Floral FO. Try it with orange blossom. AMAZING!

Updated / Correction to previous review

I stated that I wish it was body safe, the first time I ordered it, I thought it was for candles only. Now I see it's body safe which is a plus plus for me and my customers!

Just like ginger root

If you've ever shredded a real ginger root then you know exactly what this smells like. A fiery, spicy in your face kind of ginger. Real ginger is sharp and not for the faint of heart, it's not a ginger you find in grandma's spice cabinet. I love this fragrance and wish it was body safe. Thank you for a real type of ginger root scent.

Not a fan

I was so excited about ginger but this was so perfumery it was gross. I had it in a defuser and I couldn't get the smell out for days. It left me with a headache and evertime I smelled it I was mad.


While I love this scent. it is way too over powering and hard to make candles with it without coughing and having my throat feel awful. Any chance of reformulating to make is safer to work with?


This scent is going to forever be apart of my collection. One of my favs!


This scent is a keeper! I purchased it on a whim when it was brand new and was intrigued. After my first batch in 464 I was hooked!

Stays strong.

This is one of my favorites, it is strong, so a little goes a long way. I used it in MP and CP soap paired with red palm butter. LOVE IT!

Horrifyingly bad.

This scent is overwhelmingly strong. Making one batch of soap literally made my eyes water. I would NOT recommend this scent.

Different but smells great! Very gingery! Most people love it a couple some didn't but a great seller! Strong ht and ct used in 415 wax.


This scent has an amazing cold and hot throw at .5 oz/lb of GB464. My 23yr old daughter loved it commenting that it smelt like a LUSH product. I used the residual wax for melts and they had an even better amazing hot throw Super pleased with this FO and ordered more to add to my new line!

Subtle and Delightful

Very nice scent. Not to overpowering. love the ginger!

My number 1 seller. Great job CS!

Red Ginger Saffron

This is an incredible fragrance! It is spot on and has all the nuances that ginger has. I love this scent. Red Ginger Saffron is one of Candle Science's BEST scents.

Update Of Original Review

I followed the advice of another reviewer and tried mixing it with equal parts of both Lemon Pound Cake and Lemon Verbena and both are positively amazing!!! It's become a big seller in our candle line. The lemon seems to mellow out the overpowering ginger to make it perfection.

owner, Fragrant Blossom Soaps

If I were to use one word to describe this fragrance it would be this. Sacred. This is an excellent scent for men that women would love! I poured votives in it and am excited about using it in HP soap early next week. Think sacred, mystical, and walking thru a mystical shop. Cleanse the chakras. You'll be back for this one. With every single moment of my 20 year career in soap and candles, I give this one an A++! If you make incense, this is going to be a must get. For those into the mystical scents this one did not dissappoint. I love this! Candle Science delivered an amazing fragrance and I will be back to buy it once I run out of the bottle I got. A+++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Red Ginger Saffron

This is a true match for the actual smell of fresh ginger. I am so impressed that Candle Science was able to capture the essence of ginger. It makes a wonderful kitchen candle to burn after cooking to clear food smells or just to fill your kitchen with a fresh clean smell. I love it!

Hated It - As Did Everyone Else

I bought a large bottle of this based off the rave reviews, It was rather pungent in the bottle, but I was hoping it would get better after being poured into the wax. Both hot & cold throw were positively unpleasant and I was very hesitant to put them up for sale. After everything I'd read I thought perhaps my sensitive nose was being just that...too sensitive. So, I took a few of the candles around to friends and family and the consensus was unanimous. Everyone declared the scent utterly unpleasant and the candles unsellable. I'm not certain what everyone loves about this scent, but we ended up tossing the rest of the bottle AND the candles. Nobody would even take them even as freebies.

Absolutely love this scent, yet am sad that I am unable to use it seeing as how it has such a high health risk rating.

This scent is very heavy on the ginger but it smells really good. Its interesting and it keeps bringing you back to smell it over and over again.

Very gingery!

On its own, this fragrance was too gingery for me - both straight from the bottle and as a candle. Next time I combined it with equal parts Lemon Pound Cake and it was perfect! The lemon notes "cooled off" the ginger, and the ginger made the sugary cake scent more sophisticated.

Really Different

Unique is all I can say about this FO. At first I didn't like it at all but over time it's really growing on me. I bought a sample to try it but I think I am going order more and see if my customers like it? It's just really different in a weird way. I can't say "I love it" but something about it keeps drawing me back.


This scent just keeps getting better! At first I was not sure but it has really grown on me. Customers love it! I use it with ecosoya 135. Great hot and cold throw.

This is THEE most beautiful scent!!! I got a sample and made a candle...Instantly, people want to buy this. And it has become a personal fave of mine as well. I have one customer alone who is getting 20 candles of this. By far, my best seller for this season. Thanks for being on point once again, CS.


I can't stand ginger. My daughter asked that I get it so here we are.
This is awesome!!!! What a nice surprise. I will be ordering more soon.

A Candle Winner

I must admit from the start, I liked the scent out of the bottle, but it seemed a little harsh or sharp. I tried it with another fragrance and took it to a craft fair - to my amazement was my #2 seller. After test burns had to wick down from my usual container/wick combo. Not sure what the reaction would have been using just this fragrance oil. GB 464 & Eco 10

Hot throw is meh

I love this in the bottle but the hot throw has me a bit disappointed. Maybe I didn't use enough oil in this batch.

Love it!!!

I loved loved the bigelow ginger mint from BBW that was discontinued years ago... I seem to love the zesty smell of ginger and this scent has caught my attention... It's not the same as the ginger mint scent but I am happy to say this is my replacement... I think it's an amazing fragrance and I'm so happy I tried it out...

Nice & Unique

This does not smell the greatest in the bottle but I used it in Eco 135 and the cold throw is really nice! It is also pretty strong. Its a strong ginger scent for sure so you must like the sweet spicy scent that ginger has. Have not burned it yet but Im sure it will be great. I think Im adding this one to my line as well.

Love this scent

I tested this scent in a warmer in my storefront and everyone who came in loved the scent. I smell the ginger and the lemongrass others say it smells sweet. This one I'm adding to my candle line.

Can't like it

This smells exactly like a flea killing spray I used on my kitten over a year ago. Because of this, there is no way I can like the scent. I held up the bottom to my cat's nose and she visibly responded - she moved away quickly and her eyes twitched. It has a strong herby and almost medicinal scent. But the medicinal part could also be my bias.
If you've ever bought the $10 flea killing spray from Walmart, you will not like this scent.

Warm and strong

A great warm fragrance of fresh grated ginger root. Even though I love ginger root, I was shocked I liked this in a fragrance oil. Tested in GB415 soy and parasoy melts, throw is strong. Great fragrance.

Gives you a warm feeling

This smells more like ginger to me, can't really smell saffron. It gives you such a warm fuzzy feeling. I love it!! I made tarts in clamshells using eco soya cb advance. 1.5 oz of fragrance. Has great hot and cold throw. Not as strong as I was hoping for. Perfect fall scent!!


This one rocks the house. I tried all of the new ones and this one and Fireside were a home run. Whiskey was a complete strike out!
