Sparkling Grapefruit Fragrance Oil
Choose a Variant

A fruity fragrance adored by fans, Sparkling Grapefruit reaches a whole new level with this revision. Effervescent top notes of champagne and orange peel blend with an enhanced heart of grapefruit and peach cradled in a gentle base of ginger, powder, and vanilla. Our goal with this revision was to heighten the existing concept by brightening up the grapefruit.

This year-round fragrance brightens up homes in candles and wax melts, and adds freshness to washrooms with zesty soaps and 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 Grapefruit, Lemon, and Galbanum.

A must-have fragrance for any candle or body care line, we’re also excited to announce Sparkling Grapefruit is now approved for reed diffusers.

Blend recommendations: Red Ginger Saffron, Rain Water, Citron and Mandarin

Alternative branding ideas: Pomelo Peach, Sugared Grapefruit, Citrus Fizz

Suggested colors: Red, Pink

We did not experience any acceleration or separation. This came to a light trace slowly, and we found the batter turned dark yellow once at an emulsion. We continued stick blending until we reached a medium trace. We did pause to move some of the soap equipment out of the way before pouring into the mold and noticed the batter was slightly thicker but still very fluid. After 24 hours, the soap discolored to a light tan shade and the scent was strong. We observed that the soap almost reached a full gel and the heat had forced a large crack down the center of the soap surface. After 30 days, the soap remained a light tan shade and the scent was strong.

I am grateful I read the reviews!

Behaved badly. Not surprising because I had read the reviews of how this behaves in cold process soap. Fortunately I was making a small test batch. With minimal stick blending it accelerated and even started to rice a bit. The soap still turned out well, but that was because I planned a very simple two colour soap. Smells lovely though. I will use again, and think it will be wonderful in lotions and candles to accompany my soap.

Love this fragrance!

I am having trouble with hot throw. I am using 464 soy wax, 9oz straight sided jar, CD 12 wick and 1.6 per pound of wax. I also notice a lot of air bubbles.

Gorgeous, fresh scent!

I love all things grapefruit, so I had to try a sample size of this one. Poured at 6% in ecosoya 135, cured 2 weeks, and it's absolutely lovely. Cold throw is fantastic, and the hot throw is great but weird in that the room where the candle is lit doesn't seem to smell but the entire rest of my house does! Would probably be great paired with a single note basil or white sage. Perfect for spring/summer!

No hot throw

I need help getting hot throw. I am using the 9 oz straight sided jar, 464 soy wax with a CD12 wick. I have been making candles for years, and this one has me stumped. Thanks.

Smells great but did accelerate my soap and it discolored it a little.

This was the first time I tried this fragrance oil. Even though it accelerated my soap I still was able to complete my design using 3 colors. I plan on trying it again in a different recipe.

Beautiful fragrance but...

I absolutely love this FO as well as a lot of my customers! However, it will turn the wax yellow if exposed to UV light (we have fluorescent lighting in our store). I had to discontinue making candles with this FO in clear tumblers and switched to white ones.

Smells delicious! Moved quickly in soap

Moved very quickly in a 60/40 hard to soft oil cp recipe at about 110 degrees. It wasn’t soap on a stick, but I’m glad that I only had one color to work with. Not a deal- realer for me. Smells delicious, I just ordered a bigger bottle!

Too much

This fragrance was too over powering and didn’t work well in soap or candles for us.
