Sea Mist Fragrance Oil
Choose a Variant

Sea Mist fragrance oil transports you to a hilltop overlooking the summer sea.

Fragrance candles, wax melts, and reed diffusers with Sea Mist and bring the fresh, ozonic atmosphere of the seaside to any space. In soap and other body care products, the bright and salty accords truly shine.

This fragrance oil is infused with natural essential oils including orange peel and lemon peel.

Cold Process Soap Performance

There was minimal acceleration and no separation. We blended to a medium trace and poured into the mold. We noticed the last bit of soap started to stiffen as we scraped the bowl but tamping the mold on the counter easily smoothed out the surface. After 24 hours, the scent was a little light but had a wonderful salty ozonic quality. We observed that the soap reached a partial gel through the center of the bars. The soap bars had a light yellow discoloration. After 30 days, the scent is light but has a beautiful salty air quality. The bars discolored to a caramel shade but the area that went through gel phase is brown. Due to the light acceleration it would be best to mix in your colors first then add fragrance last. This would be ideal for a fun spoon swirl technique.

Sells like Seanik

For years I looked for a dupe for Lush's Seanik solid shampoo and couldn't find anything that was really spot on. I was not looking for a dupe anymore when I ordered this. I was so delighted when I realized the scent was spot on!

Its got an amazing CT, I cant review the HT yet because it's still curing

I agree with the other CP soap Maker, its great!

Really enjoying this Sea Mist Fragrance. It can accelerate slightly, since I split my batch in half. I walked away and did some shaping with half the soap batter, then came back to my pitcher and it was soap on spoon. Pretty firmed up. So, I whipped up a new half batch and continued. Results were gorgeous and colors vibrant in CP. The smell is clean, a light salt, and fresh. Out of the bottle I thought I would not like it at all, then I really loved it in soap. So give your fragrance a chance to develop, they won't disappoint. :)

Great in Cold Process!

I did not have issues in cold process soap like the other reviewer below. I tested it in a small amount of batter and didn’t notice acceleration at all so I used it in the whole amount. It definitely discolors, not sure to what extent yet I won’t know for another week or so, but it smells amazing and I was able to do beautiful swirls with the batter. I even had to wait between layers because it was too fluid.

Not Good in Soap

Used this in cold process soap. Soap accelerated as soon as the fragrance hit it, and then riced while trying to hand stir the fragrance in. I was able to whisk out the ricing, but it was a lot more work than I prefer to do with my soap and left no time or workability for a design. Soap discolored a gross yellow during cure that was not consistent throughout the bar (likely because of hand whisking for acceleration and ricing), and the scent developed strong plastic notes. I tossed the soap and the fragrance bottle after 60 days. I was very disappointed in this one.

soy candles

Interesting reading the other reviews. I do think the floral notes are what sets sea mist apart from the other "sea scents" on purpose. They have to have different notes otherwise it would all be the same. By itself in 444 soy wax at 7-10% is very nice. Seaside garden. It does blend well with other scents. Love it and recommend it.

Sea mist

I don’t typically write reviews, but I’m going to write them for the scents I ordered because I know that’s how I judge the fragrance oils when shopping for candle scents. I saw reviews warning buyers that sea mist has a strong sweet smell and also that it smells “grandma-esque”. Those descriptors kind of hit the nail on the head. I don’t dislike the smell of the fragrance however, I’d mix the scent with another oil to draw out that ozonic profile that I can smell beneath the grandma perfume scent it initially puts off. Still trying to figure out a good scent to blend with it. 3 stars because it has potential but I wish this scent was closer to high tide and less sweet. Hopefully this helps.

My favorite ocean fragrance!

Best out of all CS Ocean Profiles

Of all the Candle Science Ocean fragrance profiles, Sea Mist comes closest to the smell of the ocean. Excellent option and worth a try if you are looking for a hint of sea breeze to blend with.

Smells like laundry detergent

If you like how laundry detergent smells then it smells great. If you don't want a candle that smells like laundry detergent then keep shopping.

This scent is divine. I am so picky with fragrances. This is THE ONE. Amazing scent for candles. I mix this with black coral and moss and WOW. This scent is it!! Beautiful.
