We would not recommend this fragrance in a cold process application. But it would be great in melt-and-pour or hot process soaps and other personal care products. In cold process soap, we experienced complete separation with this fragrance. After 15 min of stick blending and hand stirring, there was no sign of stable emulsion. We determined it would need hot processing to complete the soap. After 24 hours, we observed the soap bars discolored tan around the edges while the inside remained a light yellow. The scent was pleasantly strong. After 30 days, the soap bars had a uniform tan discoloration, and the scent remained strong.

Nice oob but smell is light after burning

I am a newbie candle maker. I tested this scent at 9% because 8% did not work. I used this scent with 464 wax and CD 8 wick. Burned for one hour and could smell it. But, the scent does not travel and is not strong. Am I doing something wrong or some scents just do not work with this wax?

Surprised I like this!

I don’t usually go for a fragrance like this but smelling it OOB it was light in a way that’s intriguing. Smells like you’re on a warm beach and I feel like it has a pinch of sweetness to it. The first time around I didn’t care for it too much, but smelling it again, it’s nice.

Great in a spray

I haven't tested this one out in wax yet. However, I made a bunch of linen & room sprays over the summer and this one was a big hit in the house. My oldest child came to me to request this when our blueberry cheesecake spray was out. This is her #2 fragrance for linen & room spray fragrances thus far!

No competition

This scent OOB was very good but once I got it down in the wax (mp117/464 blend)...Instant best seller. I took 6 7.5oz candles to a pop up shop and immediately sold 5. After holding on to the last one and just letting ppl sample the cold throw, I got 23 pre-orders. If used properly you will not regret this one. Even if you personally don't like it, statistics say that 7 out of 10 will.
