Now Phthalate-Free!

REVISION NOTICE: It is our policy to notify customers if any part of a fragrance was changed for any reason.

As of August 16, 2018 our Red Hot Cinnamon was revised to meet our stringent safety standards of being Phthalate-free. The original strength and fragrance characteristics have been preserved. To see details of the previous version, click here.

Take a trip back in time with our Red Hot Cinnamon fragrance and the delicious aroma of the Red Hots candies you enjoyed as a kid. This throwback scent evokes memories of childhood fun, from decorating gingerbread houses to watching favorite movies in theaters. Top notes of cinnamon and rich nutmeg stand out right away. A heart of clove reinforces the spice, while sugar and wood notes round out the sweet base.

Red Hot Cinnamon candles and wax melts make excellent gifts for anyone who wants to bring a bit of nostalgia into their daily lives. Just like the iconic candy, this spicy favorite balances the right amount of hot and sweet, delighting cinnamon lovers and those young at heart.

I ordered an ounce to try. I used this oil with a tea light candle in my bathroom and you can smell it throughout my bedroom. Love this warm scent and will order the big bottle.

I am not a cinnamon fan at all. With that being said, I have to admit that I do like this one. It reminds me of the tiny red hot candies and the hot tamale candies. It is true to its name. It smelled really good oob and the ct is awesome. I hope the ht is as good. I will update after testing. Great job Candle Science!

Smells like it should

I ordered a few fragrances Red Hot Cinnamon was the first I made. I did not want to wait a few days, so I lit the tealight from the extra and the smell carried throughout most of our doublewide home. Will be ordering again.

Love The Smell

I am new to candle making and this is one of my first scents to try. After 2 weeks with an 8% fragrance mix, one small 4 oz candle will fill the entire bathroom with the smell of cinnamon. You can even smell it in the hall outside with the door closed. I did have some issues with pitting more than other scents but nothing that cannot be managed. I will be ordering the 16 oz bottle next time.

Great but...

I love the smell of this FO. However, after 4 years of using it (old and new version) I cannot for the life of me figure out how to avoid sinkholes with it. It’s extremely frustrating. That being said, the fragrance itself is spot and I’ll continue to use it. If anyone has the answers to this problem, help me!! Lol

Hi! Fragrance oils can sometimes affect how a candle cures overall and in many cases, adjusting the fragrance load can help. We've reached out via email with some more troubleshooting info as well!
