Lovely clean smell. Strong too! I made Shea butter salt scrub bars and my oh my the scent was lovely while scrubbing in the shower! I could smell it all over my skin even when I got out and dried off. Very nice!

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.
This is a clean slightly soapy floral with creamy undertones. It's very pretty, much nicer in product than what you smell in the bottle. I know my ladies who like feminine things will like this very much.
Orchids are not a scent that I personally would go for in a candle. I received the 1oz FO as a free scent in an order based on the reviews. The reviews were pretty spot on about this FO. It gives a steady hot and cold throw. I will be using this for my Spa Candles and trialing it as a sample to give to customers who order other candles from my range to gauge it's popularity. Works very well with the 464 blend, used a 6% FO load (wax heated to 185F then waited 1 minute, added FO. Stirred for 3 minutes with additional stir while the wax cooled to pouring temp - poured at 135F). For this FO i used the candle science straight side tumbler. Gave an even and smooth finish with minimal sinkage close to the wick. Recommend having your work space at around 70 degrees and minimal drafts when using the glass tumblers. To avoid frosting i placed a plastic tub over the top of the candles, weighted down with a book, while they dried overnight.
This oil does amazing in my 464 Soy wax.. it fills my living room into my dining room with its addicting aroma. There is nothing like it and I'm soooo happy I decided to try this one out.. I've completely sold out of this scent in candles twice now!! Literal PERFECTION!!!! Everyone is addicted when they smell it. PLEASE NEVER CHANGE IT!!!! Thanks CS!
One of my all time favorites and best sellers. Works for all seasons and plenty strong!
It's as though the orchid and sea salt have done a passionate, sultry dance across my customers hearts. This fragrance is amazing!
Hands down one of my favorite scents ever! You can't go wrong with this scent in your collection!
I did not care much for the scent but this works really well with the Reed diffuser base. It is a very powerful throw so I adjusted the base and took out a few reeds.
I love this scent for my Salt Bar recipe, and I used Rose Clay for a colorant... however, I don't recommend using it for cold-process soap. Although it smelled lovely, as soon as it began to cure it turned the batch an ugly brown color. I LOVE the SCENT and my customers love it too in the Salt Bar recipe; not a repeat for my soap recipe.
This scent works perfect in HP soap. It is my top selling scent in soap, lotion and bath bombs. It's comes out perfect in my goat milk soap that I make from my own herd of dairy goats.
Love this scent, used on HP soap.
I love this scent. It’s fresh and light, has great cold and hot throw. My customers love it.
This scent is lovely. It is a light scent and very fresh and clean smelling
It is strong and long lasting .
I don't know if its being a newbie to candle making BUT all I smell is bubble gum - very light scent. I smell no sea salt so perhaps the bubble gum scent is the orchid? I thought this would have been my favorite of all the samples I purchased (based on the reviews) but this just leaves me puzzled as to what everyone is going crazy over.
I purchased another 1 oz sample to try again in coconut soy wax as the GB464 is hell to work with and I am tired of trying to get it right :-/ Perhaps it will smell different then?
This scent is absolutely beautiful!!
This scent is loved by everyone who has smelled it in my soy candles (used 464). The cold and hot throws are absolutely amazing!
I really love this scent, so does my mom and costumers! <3
The smell is difficult to describe, but I would absolutely recommend buying it! This fragrance is perfectly balanced. It isn't too much or too little. Just perfect!
I can't believe how inviting and relaxing this smell is!!! I *knew* I would love it when I saw the name...but the scent is literally indescribable. There are SO many undertones in here you won't be able to contain all the goodness that enters your nose when this is in your home/business/etc. I absolutely love this. Sea Salt & Orchid will be a HUGE winner, regardless of what you pair with it or what medium you use to share the love. <3 Job WELL done guys. Thank you!!
This is such a lovely calming scent. My customers love this scent, I can't keep it in stock.
I can barely keep Sea Salt Orchid candles on my shelves! This and Fraser Fir go quick, so buy a lot! Never change this scent and never run out, please!
This is a favorite of many, and it always sells quickly. It is a great stand-alone scent - I always want to mix things to create my own scents but I don't mix this one with anything because it is great by itself. I'm not sure it smells like sea salt OR orchids, but whatever, people love it.
I love it, in my soy candles 464 it has a unique and special smell. All customers like it.
It seems that everyone makes this scent in soap and it took me a while to purchase because I didn't want my soap to smell like everyone else's. I finally broke down realizing it was popular for a reason. I made soap with this f.o. last week and it is absolutely AMAZING. My cp soap reached trace just a little faster than usual but I was still able to make swirls. The scent is not overpowering and is absolutely delightful. ❤ definitely recommend this to anyone on the fence.
I used this in my very first cold process soap a few years ago and again in a salt scrub cold process soap. Both of them soaped perfectly. No acceleration, ricing or discoloration. I soap at room temp which helps slow trace. This scent is a hit with all the women in my friends and family circle. I've bought this several times. It was one of the first repurchases after all my fragrance oils were ruined in our house fire. Everyone wanted it back right away. I really don't think you can go wrong with it. I can't wait to make another soap with it soon.
Haven’t been doing this long I love making candles without my vision scents have become such a different experience. I started making candles recently for something to get me through my days it has given me joy but back to this scent I love the slight oxen scent you get when you first inhale then the ever so slight but beautiful floral scent it makes great wax melts!
One of my best sellers!! Truly a beautiful fragrance.
this is so lovely I will keep this in my line as long CS keep in stock
the type of FO I will love to have all the time
I LOVE this fragrance aside from the lovely smell this fragrance behaves very well in cold process soap!! My soap stayed very fluid even though I was ready to work quickly because of the floral. There was no need! I defiantly need to order more of this fragrance!
Like everyone else I am always sorry I didn't buy more of this scent. My candles fly out the door as soon as my customers smell them. I also have made lotion which is out of this world. Today I made my first batch of soap cold process soap with this fragrance. In the description it says that it will not cause acceleration. I found this not to be the case. If you work with a water discount be ready to work fast. I use a 10% discount and soaped at my usual temp of 85 degrees. 3 seconds of the stick blender and it was at a thick medium trace. It all worked out just fine due to the fact I wasn't doing anything fancy but knowing what to expect makes soaping much easier.
GORGEOUS fragrance! This smells expensive and sophisticated and beautiful. A customer favorite in our 464 soy candles. We used a 10% fragrance load. Love, love, love!
This FO is such a perfect blend! The ocean water scent combined with the jasmine and lily makes for a wonderful, soothing beach smell. It performs amazing in parasoy wax melts!
This smells amazing in cold process soap, it soaped well, after 4 weeks it smells amazing and the soap is ready to sell, I know my customers will love this one!
I’m so impressed with this fragrance , smell amazing! All my customers love it! It’s has a very good hot throw! I am so happy with Candles Science Co.
This fragrance is everywhere in my home. It now reminds me of summer and I'm in love. Whoever made this scent, bless you.
OMG!!!!!!! This fragrance is so intoxicating! I used it to make a body butter and I asked 5 men at work if they would like to smell this on their wives and they all said yes. I use it regularly and I'm just really pleased with this scent. It's so warm and inviting. Not too strong. It almost feels like it is hugging you when you smell it. I love it so much. I'm going to order a large quantity for my inventory.
I love it!! I justed ordered a 4oz bottle I should order a bigger one. Smell amazing on soy wax, I can´t wait to try on soap, hope I know how to do lotions because for sure it will smell sooo good.
OMG this scent is wonderful!!!!! 12% in 464...Heat to 165, add FO 150, pour at 110. One of my best sellers and one of my personal favs!! Will continue to buy! The HT is strong!!
A little sharp OOB, but it mellows in the application to something truly sophisticated and sexy.
This FO will make a nice addition to your collection. No need to mix other FO to this. It is PERFECT right out of the bottle.
Omg OOB it's freaking awesome!! I want to make soap right now!! Asking my cousin to make me a candle!!
I love this. It’s a perfect balance between a very light floral and just plain clean air. This is my new beach scent for everything. Love it.
Feels luxurious and has an amazing cold throw! The hot throw is strong too and lingers making your room smell divine
I have used this scent in candles and they sell very quickly. I have used this scent into soaps and they sell very quickly. I have used this scent into wax melts and those sell very quickly when I really didn't think they would.
I cannot even believe how good this smells! Everyone loves it... that is the bars I'm not using myself.
I love this it's a creamy soft scent with a hint of zing and sweetness. Made perfect soap not sure about candles will be ordering more for candle testing. It's more of a spring scent but you could get away with it all year long
This smells so good!! I do 12% FO load in 464 and the HT is AMAZING! One 16 oz candle fills my entire kitchen and living room area. I will probably go down to 10% because it's almost too strong. Definitely recommend.
Behaved well in CP soap, no acceleration, ricing, etc. I used this in a beer soap batch so I think the fragrance got a little thrown off by the beer, will definitely try again in a "normal" soap recipe. Did discolor quite dark, as expected, but did not really affect the portion I swirled without FO so can definitely work with the discoloration easily if planned appropriately.
Has a beautiful smell when mixed with soy wax.
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.
