Our Sea Salt and Orchid fragrance oil is a smooth and elegant blend of soft floral notes with salty highlights. You’ll notice crisp ozonic notes of sea salt right out of the bottle. But in a wax or soap, calming notes of jasmine, lily of the valley, and tonka bean take hold. This scent has year round appeal and is ideally suited for an upscale spa and/or aromatherapy line.
This fragrance is infused with natural essential oils, including orange oil.Note Profile:

We did not experience acceleration or separation. After 24 hours the soap was a tan shade, and the scent was strong. We did observe a partial gel with minimal insulation. After the cure, the soap was a dark tan shade with a strong scent. Due to the discoloration, it would be ideal to separate out a small amount of soap to leave unscented when adding color.

I made candles for the first time this year (2018) to give as Christmas gifts to family and friends. I researched obsessively before making candles, and I found candlescience as a company to be a good fit for what I wanted in candles (high quality products, good customer service, products good for the environment/humans, etc). This was one of my favorite scents I used. Out of the five fragrances I purchased from candlescience, this was everyone's favorite. I had several friends smell the candle oils (both OOB and in the finished candle), and this was unanimously the favorite scent, despite really different tastes among my friends. It is floral and light, definitely has a spring/summer kind of vibe. I used the 464 soy wax from candlescience at a 10% fragrance load and had good performance with both hot and cold throw. I added fragrance at 180 and poured at 135. I didn't have any sweating in my candles from the fragrance. Would highly recommend!
I bought this as a sample. It's makes 3 8oz jar candles. We like to do this to see which scents go the fastest before ordering a 16oz bottle of fragrance. I can tell you those 3 candles lasted 3 days. Customers and myself, absolutely love this scent!
I LOVE this scent! Not overly floral, has a mysterious and sophisticated edge.
I didn't get to enjoy this scent like I wanted to because when I opened my order (bottle had leaked out all the box) I did enjoy cleaning the rest of my bottles off and the smell is so refreshing and it's a very soft but relaxing smell! I will be buying another bottle but I'm saving it all for my own use instead of for my customers lol jk I plan to buy this scent for a very long time.
Hi! We are so sorry to hear that your order arrived damaged. That can certainly be frustrating. Please email pictures of the damage to email@example.com and we would be happy to get a replacement out to you!
This is absolutely my #1 fo from CS. It smells soooooo good! I have tried it in lotion and the scent lingers on my skin for a while. I can't wait to try it in CP. It smells refreshing with a hint of floral, sweet, spa fresh like notes. To me, it has a tint perfume note which makes it perfect for lotion.
love this! It has a very high end spa type aroma. It smells heavenly in bath bombs, soap and in candles. Got this in a 1 oz but will get a bigger bottle next time. Yes!
I’m in love with this scent! I have to buy more asap!
I purchased the 1 oz sample because the reviews we so convincing I just had to try it. OOB I wasn't sure I it liked it 100%. It smelled kind of sweet to me. I tried it in parasoy wax and made some melts. Let it cure for a week. And Y'all " THIS FRAGRANCE IS AMAZING". I felt like I was at the spa. The scent throw is incredible. My husband loves it too! This is a keeper. I will be ordering a large bottle of this one.
This is a very nice fragrance! Thankful for this creation!
I can't get enough of this smell. This made my house smell like a Day Spa. Cold and Hot throw are excellent.
I use this scent in M&P soaps and soy candles, it is absolutely, hands-down the best scent in my collection. It has a hint of summery-cocoa butter that is nostalgic and comforting, I highly recommend this essential oil!
My customer said they really liked this one and it was in soy wax container wax. I bought it as a 99 cent deal and sold it to a customer and this was back in December.
I just got asked last week from this customer if I could make several more for them as they loved the scent. Cold throw was very weak to me but if they just burned it, it means that it sat for months curing and the hot throw must have been good. It cured for 5-6 months then.
I'm only giving this a few stars as I myself did not get to try this one as there was not enough oil but only for the 1 I sold. I'm glad they love it.
I will make myself 1 and see if I like it.
I may make a body spray and lotion and see if I can move this product.
Amazing unisex fragrance! For those complaining about how all their scents come out weak.. try a wax blend other than just 100% soy. From my experience straight Soy is great for bakery scents. Other than that stick with a para/soyblend. Design your own ratio if you have to.
I love Sea Salt and Orchid its one of my favorite fragrances from CS. It works very well with C3 soy wax. The hot and cold throw is amazing. it's a big hit at craft fairs.
This is by far my best selling scent. It is fantastic in my body butters and wax melts. The "sea salt" is not very profound, and I'm told by my customers it has a creamy coconut scent with floral undertones. It is not a masculine scent, but somehow smells great on guys!
This is a must have scent! It works great in Soy candles gives off an amazing cold throw and even better hot throw! Made a small amount to test and sold the first 5 people. Bought a big bottle and cant wait to add to my line up.
This one's a keeper! Customers LOVE this scent. It's very soothing and relaxing. Highly recommend.
I fell head over heels in love with this fragrance! I got a sample size when the sample sale was going on and i am so happy i tried it. I used it in cp soap and split my batch into three colors, one i used orchid mica, one i used yellow oxide and the other i used neon yellow pigment. I put all the soap batter in condiment bottles and had my kids help squeeze them into layers. My vision was to make the soap have a tiger orchid pattern and it is beautiful!!! Everyone loves it! I'm ordering a bigger bottle because i can’t live without this fragrance.
This is a beautiful fragrance that I plan to make one of my regulars.
We love this one. Works amazing in candles and lotions.
So I got this oil based on the wonderful reviews and I must say that I am VERY disappointed. I made a batch of candles using this fragrance and they had absolutely no cold throw. I literally will have to put my nose as close as I can and inhale so hard to try and get a smell from them. I used Ecosoya CB Advance and added fragrance at 185 degrees, and poured at 135 degrees. I’m praying to God that when they get burned, there’s a great hot throw. If not, this would have been a COMPLETE waste of my money. I will NEVER buy this FO again and I wish I could get my money back for this one.
This scent is SO complex everyone who smells it loves it. I use it in 464 for my candles
By far one of my favorite scents and popular among my customers. This one will always be a regular in my line-up. A great one for all seasons!!
I loved this fragrance! a best seller!
Works well as a background scent when used with the reed Diffusers. Excellent in liquid soap too!
Love this fragrance! Wonderful cold throw. One of those you can't get enough of smelling it...
New favorite! Already sold out the candles in this scent. Buying more!
This scent is a hit in every application. Candles fly off the shelf. Literally had customers play rock paper scissor for the last Sea Salt and Orchid bath bomb. Great in melt and pour. Behaves pretty well in CP soap. Very mild acceleration, no ricing, strong scent retention. It does discolor to a medium tan in CP.
I saw a few of the bad reviews and hesitated, but I'm so glad I ended up purchasing this fragrance. It smells absolutely wonderful. It has such a pleasant and beautiful aroma. In no way did I get a febreze scent from this fragrance and my husband loved this scent as well and he's fairly picky. I'm looking forward to seeing how well it does at my vendor event this weekend.
Soft yet powerful and compelling. I fell in love instantly and has incorporated it in mixes for my spring line. It was a hit in its testing phase and has become one of my best sellers for new and old customers. Even a good deal of my male clients are drawn to it. It's so good it's one of my personal go-to's and my most recommended for gifts.
This fragrance smells so wonderful! It is truly for someone who likes perfumy scents--which I do! I will certainly be buying this fragrance again and would highly recommend it to others.
This fragrance is a favorite by all my customers. I make coconut soy candles with it, body butters, scrubs, soap and it is a hit!!!
This will go in my line up for sure. Very pleased with this. I can't stop smelling it...aahhhhhh
I really wanted this scent-cannot use in my business-just not strong enough
I tried this fragrance in GB wax 464 at 6% and it was absolutely lovely!!! I don't usually like these kinds of perfume or floral type fragrances. When I tried it at 8% it smelled too strong and I didn't like it. So don't over do it! Keep it at a smaller percentage in your wax. The hot and cold throw are still very strong even at 6%.
I love the smell of this fragrance oil! I don't know how anyone cannot like it. It is a lovely perfumey fragrance. If you like Black Opium you will like this.
I have always loved all the oils from candlescience, but NOT this one. Horrible scent in both the bottle and in a candle. Wish I could return, because it was a complete waste. Super strong fake febreeze smell with no hint of sea salt.
I LOVE how complex this smell is! It was a little "perfume-y" to me, but ALL of my testers LOVED it and it is a great scent. Diff has a very "high end" feel to it. Used in 464 Soy Wax at 1oz/1lb, nice strong cold and hot throw
I am not really a fan of florals, but the woody/salty notes balance out and add a complexity to this fragrance and gives it a yummy quality. Reminds me of a fancy spa with pristine white towels and robes and clouds of steam hovering over soaking pools. This leans feminine, and there is a lightness to it, BUT, it is has to be one of the most potent hot throws of any CS fragrance I have tried, a sample 4 ounce tin filled up my entire second floor (10% in soy blend).
I love this scent but it does discolor in cp soap. I was hoping that if it discolored it would be a nice tan color but it turned an ugly yellow color .
I must admit that I was a little apprehensive before I bought this so I only got the 4 oz bottle. What a mistake!!! I should've definitely ordered a larger size. This scent is BEAUTIFUL. It's in the running as my new favorite scent. It's light and feminine and it performed MAGNIFICENTLY in my cold process soap. I was very, very happy with the outcome. I will be ordering a larger bottle because this will definitely be a staple in my products going forward.
Sells out as soon as I make it!!! I love this scent and so do my customers. I have used it in hot process soap, lotion, and soy wax. I am pleased how it behaved in all 3. Nice balance of floral and sweet and a base note you can't quite put your finger on.
Very nice, clean and light. Best seller always!!
Seriously this product sells so fast, I cannot keep up with the demand! I'm in my first year, and this is in my top 5 sellers year round. I couldn't ask for a better floral fragrance. Some day I'll be buying the 5 gallon one in this. I love this fragrance. Candlescience you did amazing with this
I can't keep this product in stock! My customers love it I'm keeping it for the fall due to the high demand.
This has amazing performance in soap! I do recommend going with a higher percentage for candles however. The hot throw at 10% can easily fill a room but at 6% was a little underwhelming. Wonderful scent! My favorite right now!
This is by far my all time favorite candle science fragrance! I love love love it!!!
This was my first experience with this fragrance and I am loving it, will definitely buy again!
This is a very nice fragrance on the blotter. It smells perfumey and really nice.
I made the first candle with 9% FO in IGI 4630. Barely any CT or HT. I then made it with 12% FO. Same result.
I'm melting wax to 185-190, adding FO at 180-185 and pouring at 170F.
I just made a candle with 15% FO!! The cold throw hardly changed. Haven't burned it yet.
I love this fragrance and if the 15% does not present a better HT, I will try adding the FO at 170 and pouring at 160F.
Not sure what else I should do...helpful tips are welcomed! thanks! firstname.lastname@example.org
This is one of my best sellers! Wonderful scent.
I didn't get Febreze from this scent at as some reviewers have commented. My cp soap has yet to finish its cure, but 1 ounce of this was was enough to lightly scent 50 ounces of soap. The scent has softened somewhat during the cure, but that's a good thing since I was aiming to create a soft scent for those who don't like traditional FO. Soaped like a dream!
The more I use up my candlescience samples picked up during the last 99 cent sample sale- the more impressed I become!
I bought the small bottle to try, and made a variety of sizes and they all sold out in one farmers market. I'm buying more for the next market :)
I love this scent and will definitely sell well, however the name of the oil is a bit misleading as it really doesn't have a "salty" quality to it.
This is a pleasant scent, which I would say is neutral (not too sweet, not too floral, etc). I get what people are saying about Febreze though, there is something very familiar and commonplace with this scent and the first thing that came to mind was Febreze for me as well. Strong HT in parasoy for me.
This is an amazing fragrance. Not overly flowery at all. It's a tropical scent wrapped up in salt and ozone. Just perfect! I will be buying a vat of this one.
I just saw the video, and had to leave a review. I bought this fragrance a month ago, and I absolutely love it. My son was with me and it reminded us of home. We grew up near the tropics, and my mother used to raise orchids. Immediately made MP Soap with it. It will be a must have and permanent in my collection!
I'm not a fan of floral fragrances at all, but I was intrigued by the reviews and description of this fragrance. This is an amazing fragrance! It's warm and clean and fresh, not cloying like many floral fragrances can be. I will be adding this to my permanent line. Excellent job as always, Candle Science!
This scent is awesome! smells exactly like the beach....... sweet yet salty, clean and fresh!
Wasn't sure about this one smelling it from the bottle, but I made a tester and am glad I did. Both the cold and hot throw are strong, and I think it smells way better burning than out of the bottle! It's pretty floral but not too overpowering, with some really nice clean notes...definitely balanced. I'll be ordering more!
I'm very new to the candle making world. So I usually only by one ounce of fragrance at a time. This last time I only made three candles with this scent, because that's all I could make with my one ounce jar! Those three candles went so fast and I actually had people arguing over who was going to get them. I wish I would have purchased the larger bottle of this fragrance and made 12 of them. I love the smell of it also. Before I let people smell the candles, I always told them, "This one is my new favorite." Like I said it was an instant hit.
Ordered a sample of this one and really like it. It's quite feminine and think it would do really well in a soap. Making candles with it currently and am liking the results so far. The hot throw is quite potent. Very nice!
This scent is amazing!!
One of my personal favorites. It smells very pink to me. It smells so clean and fresh, it might end up being a year round fragrance for me.
I had high hopes for this one, however it does smell like a Febreze plug-in. All I pick up is a slightly floral, powdery note with maybe some slight ozonic at the top. The cold throw is pretty good, and I haven't burned it yet, so we'll see about hot throw. Its a nice scent, just doesn't really appeal to me.
I've tried just about every fragrance on here and this is easily in my top 10, just waiting for my candles to cure before I test them we will see what the trow is like!
I paired this fragrance with the Triple Butter soap base.
OMG, it smells amazing!!
I think this is my new favorite scent!!!
First, Sea Salt & Orchid is a pleasant and warm fragrance. We plan to purchase larger bottles for personal use.
Now, for the rest. We made candles & sachets for friends and family. They also enjoyed the scent but mistook it for a Febreze product. I was slightly disappointed because we really enjoy this scent & hoped for the upscale spa. But, then again, I have preferred a few Febreze candles over expensive designer scents.
With that being said - if you own a candle store, I'm certain customers will enjoy this FO. (It's in my Top 3 of Candle Science fragrances.) But, many will associate the Sea Salt & Orchid scent with a generic Febreze. It's clean (not fake linen clean, but fresh summer air clean) and I could see it replacing traditional linen/clean scents in your summer candle lines.
Five stars because it's a nice, clean fragrance that will be used often in our home.
I purchased this FO as a sample size because of the size and the picture captured my attention. OMG is all I could say when I smelled this FO. I think it has become my favorite one by Candle Science. I've only smelled it OOB but I've already placed an order for a larger bottle.
I bought this one (in addition to the other new fragrances) on a whim since they had an introductory sale going. I don't think that I would have considered this one otherwise, and I couldn't quite imagine what "Sea Salt and Orchid" would smell like. But to my immense surprise, after such high expectations for of the other new scents, this one is my favorite by a landslide. I've only smelled it OOB so far (and can't stop smelling it!) but it has already guaranteed a permanent place in my Summer line and my personal collection.
