Saffron Cedarwood Fragrance Oil
Choose a Variant

Clear away negative energy with the grounding scent of Saffron Cedarwood fragrance oil. A hint of sweet citrus melts into earthy saffron, soft violet, and cleansing palo santo. A woodsy marriage of amber, sandalwood, and smoke provide a strong base for a fragrance line focused on wellness or the metaphysical.

A clear choice for candles, wax melts, and tarts, as well as soap, scrubs and lotions, this rich scent lends itself well to spa or luxury lines.

This fragrance is infused with natural essential oils including elemi and does not contain any Palo Santo.

By popular demand, Palo Santo was renamed Saffron Cedarwood in 2022. The fragrance oil itself is completely unchanged. The name was chosen by customer vote to make sure the new name best represented the fragrance to our customers. 

Blends well with: Peppermint and Eucalyptus, Sandalwood, Patchouli, Grapefruit and Mint, White Sage and Lavender

Alternative branding ideas: Palo Santo Wood, Sacred Wood, Healing Wood

Suggested colors: Tan, Ivory

We experienced a slight amount of acceleration but no separation. This came to a light trace slowly but once at trace, the batter did start to thicken slightly. At a medium trace the batter was easy to work with and remained fluid while pouring into the mold. After 24 hours, the soap had gelled through the center only and discolored to a light beige. The scent was more mild but very true to the original character. After 30 days, the soap discolored to a light tan and the scent was strong. This fragrance would be ideal for simple design patterns that require a thicker trace but prepare to work quickly.

I ordered two 4oz bottles of Saffron Cedar because I loved the sample I received. I did have to use 10% in my candles to make the first bottle have a strong enough CT, and they turned out wonderfully. I opened the second bottle today to make more candles, but there was no smell at all. At first, I thought it was me, but when I had several other people take a whiff they didn't smell anything either. I even poured a test candle, and still no smell. I am giving this a mixed review because I LOVE the scent when it is present but am so disappointed that my bottles are not consistent in fragrance throw.

I love it

I didn’t know what to expect when I bought this because I’ve never smelled REAL saffron before. In a candle this is great. To my nose it smells slightly spicy in an invigorating way like mens care products, the obvious woody notes and rounded out almost by an amber scent? I was surprised and impressed. Buying the large bottle. I love this scent and my boyfriend did as well. We both have a plethora of test candles we light daily and we both go for this one at the end of the day.

One of my best-selling candle scents. Both women & men gravitate to this scent. I'm not sure why they changed the name, but it hasn't deterred anyone from falling in love with this scent. Thanks, CandleSceince!

Kind of let me down

I was really hoping for a cedar wood type of smell from this. It smelled like aftershave. I would not recommend for a candle, or soap unless its for a man, or a woman who just wants to smell cologne. Hopefully I can play around with it and mix it with another scent but on its own, for a candle this is not the scent for me.

A keeper

I just started making candles and this was one of my trials. My 1st run with it was at 6%. CT was good, HT was def weak. 2nd run I did 9%. CT was very good, and HT was perfect. This will def be in my first release as response has been very positive.

I love this scent but...

I blended this with sparkling grapefruit at 8% FL and the HT is very weak! I love blending and creating something a little more unique but this one might be best on it's own.
Smells amazing though just wouldn't recommend blending. Going to remake all my candles with just this fragrance and see if that works better!

This is a lovely fragrance, though it smells nothing like palo santo nor cedarwood imo. It has a very clean, slightly masculine scent that reminds me a bit of Irish Spring soap. I'm using ecosoya 135 at 6% and I would consider increasing the FL for better hot throw. It's subtle and very pleasant.

Absolutely Loveeeeee

I've always loved candles and my go to is usually something fruity or "dessert-like". HOWEVER... This scent right here is the bomb! I'm currently playing around with wax melts & I've combined this with cashmere musk and it smells like someone's sophisticated son just walked through my living room. Great Job CandleScience !
