Tangy, tantalizing, and delightfully refreshing, our Sparkling Grapefruit fragrance is an effervescent blend of grapefruit and tangerine. Hints of ginger and green leaves enhance the natural quality of this juicy citrus. Notes of vanilla and wood in the base keep this high-spirited scent grounded and balanced. Brighten up kitchens and living rooms with Sparkling Grapefruit candles and wax melts, and add freshness to washrooms with zesty soaps and other body care products. The familiar accords of this fragrance give it mass appeal, while the bright, bubbly zing keeps it surprising enough for the most discerning nose.

This fragrance is infused with natural essential oils, including Tangerine, Galbanum, and Ginger.

Note Profile:
Top: Grapefruit, Tangerine, Ozone
Middle: Ginger, Mimosa, Green Leaves
Base: Vanilla, Wood

Note: Sparkling Grapefruit has too dominant of a ginger note out of the bottle for the fragrance notes to be in balance. It should therefore only be evaluated in a candle or personal care base.

Our Sparkling Grapefruit fragrance oil was previously named Sparkling Pomelo. It’s the same great fragrance oil, just with a new name!

We did not experience any acceleration. But we did have a moderate amount of separation. We found that the batter was difficult to bring to trace from the separation. Continuing to stick blend to a thick trace helped keep the batter together. We were able to pour into the mold without the soap separating. After 24 hours the scent was strong, and there was no discoloration. We did observe a partial gel with minimal separation. After the cure, the scent was mild and pleasant and had a light yellow discoloration.

So I'm cheap, so I got this. I really like it, it's sweet. I can't imagine it mixed with anything, but it's really good.


I really hope the scent of the new scent is as good as this one because this was amazing.



Juicy Fruit Mimosa

If your market is 7 year old kids, this scent will make you a millionaire =-). 10/10 of our neighborhood kids freaked out over how good this scent smells. It does smell wonderful on its own. We use it in blends - great CT/HT and I bet it would blend well with Amber and Driftwood or other woody/resiny profiles.



Beautiful mix of blood orange + sparkling grapefruit, I call if “afternoon pomelo” it’s a beautiful, crisp citrus 🍊 reminds you of an afternoon cocktail

This scent smells AMAZING!! It smells great OOB and in wax. I use 444 and a coconut blend. I think this is going to be a best seller for my line. Smells heavenly!

Soon as I receive my oil I couldn’t stop sniffing it. I feel it in my bones this is gonna be a hit. I just did the promo for the candle and people are already obsessed with the description of the candle and vessels themselves. You need to get this.


No detectable grapefruit

This is a pleasant scent. However, it's not a grapefruit scent or a citrus scent of any kind. The predominant note is mango. Be aware also that this is a very "sweet" scent.


To me, this smells more like a mimosa than grapefruit which is why I rebranded it for my line. It has a great hot & cold throw. I use 10% fragrance load in GB464. 10/10


LOVE this

Great HT and smells just like grapefruit - very pleasant and just the right amount of sweetness!


Nice FO

Another "nice" citrus fragrance. Easy to work with in CP and it has a nice creamy but fresh scent.
I like it but I can take it or leave it, there are so many citrus scents available.


I received my oil today. I absolutely love the scent. Can't wait to try it in my body butter and candles.



Five stars

I used this in lotion and I haven't had this kind of response from a lotion scent in a long time, people are going crazy for it. It smells so fresh and tart and lively.


In love!

I love LOVE this scent. I don’t even know what made me buy it, but I’m really glad I did. Has a wonderful throw in soy-paraffin blend.

I love this scent~! It's a very effervescent grapefruit scent with more depth than just standard grapefruit scents. I make handmade deodorants with this scent and people love this one!


Not enough graperfruit scent

Customers who love grapefruit do not like this fragrance. The scent is weak. When compared to Grapefruit and Mint, grapefruit and mint has a much stronger grapefruit smell. I have to find something to mix this with because it doesn't work well alone.


Really wanted to love it, but not quite

I really like champagne and grapefruit scents separately, but did not enjoy this scent from smelling it from the bottle. I CP soaped with it twice -- using the first batch as embeds in the second -- and really couldn't get behind the scent. There is almost something "off" about the grapefruit scent in a way that made me worry that my oils were turning rancid. I've soaped since using the same ingredients with no issues, so it must be the FO. I'm using one of the bars now in the shower and while it isn't bad, it isn't a grapefruit scent I love. The champagne smells more like a car freshener to me.


I really like the smell of this out of the bottle and from a CT. But at a 1:1 ratio, I just don't think it was enough. The longer I burnt the candle, the more I smelled it, but seeing as it's a lighter fragrance, I could see myself easily adding another 1 or 2 % FO to the wax. I look forward to trying this one again!


No throw, cannot use standalone

I've tested this new fragrance oil multiple times with multiple wicks and several weeks curing. There is just no hot throw. I will have to find something to mix this fragrance with so it doesn't go to waste.


Wonderful in CP, smells great behaves well



* A W E S O M E ** This fragrance is very strong out of the bottle. It is very refreshing and bright as a stand-alone FO... BUT...
.....get creative and mix up your fragrances with the following:
Red Ginger Saffron FO [2 parts]
with Blood Orange [1 part]
and the Sparkling Grapefruit [1 part]
I made a few 3 wicks with the IGI 6006 wax and the cold & hot throws are unreal!!!
I used 1 drop of red and 1 drop of orange liquid dye (per 14.7 ounces of wax/FO combined) from CS to craft a bight reddish-orangish color.

Seriously, this is my new go-to FO for the summer. As a stand-alone fragrance, it is a mouth-watering delicious treat that makes you think: Afternoon Summer Cocktails!!!

Love this! Smells high-end, so refreshing and really does seem "sparkling". Trying it in some bath bombs and my kitchen smells wonderful. I can definitely see this being a big seller for weddings/bachelorette favors.


Is it just me?

I really loved the Sparkling Pomelo scent and use it mixed in one of my scents. I didn't worry because they said the formula hadn't changed, only the name, but I just got the new Sparkling Grapefruit in the mail and am now wondering,, am I the only one who thinks this smells different from Sparkling Pomelo? I only use about 30% of it in my formula, so my candles may still smell the same (I hope!), but OOB it definitely smells a bit different to me.

CandleScience Reply

Hi! Thank you for the feedback. We can assure you that there has been no formula change as we rebranded the Sparkling Pomelo to the Sparkling Grapefruit. We will always annotate on the details section of any revisions and update fragrance properties and documentation when reformulations/revisions occur. This is still the same great fragrance just renamed to help customers better understand what it is!
