Product Update: March 5, 2019

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

A unique take on citrus scents, our Sparkling Pomelo is a distinctive blend of grapefruit and tangerine with a surprising hint of effervescence. Aromatic, bright, and zesty, this energizing scents familiar accords give it mass appeal in both candles and soaps. This fragrance is infused with natural essential oils, including Galbanum, Tangerine, and Ginger.

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

Note: Sparkling Pomelo 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.

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.

Bring It Back!

Why did they discontinued this scent. It was amazing. I’ve used it in a coconut/soy wax blend and I received a great throw after a 24 hr cure. It was my ultimate best seller.

I would like to hope you bring it back.

More popular than I expected

Smelling from the bottle, I thought it was just ok, but people love the candles, they only want this scent, even up against S&O Eliminator which smells awesome.


sky works art

ok a bit to much lime



Wow..this scent is amazing. Just fresh & citrus with plenty of depth. My tarts smell great both hot & cold. Remember folks straight soy wax doesn't always do the job so blend with paraffin for best results.


A Fresh Surprise

I love pomelos to eat and was so excited to try this because I've not seen a pomelo scent before. We tried it in the 444 soy wax and poured at 110F and it smells BEAUTIFUL. Bright and grapefruity. Re-ordering more for sure!



Got a 1 oz sample when they released it. I loved it and it had a great hot and cold throw. ordered a 1LB bottle 2 months later and it has a musk smell like dirty gym socks. I called CS and asked them to check stock and they said it was right. they did refund my money, but there is too much Vetiver in the formula. whatever you had the first month, you need to go back to that and back off the vetiver in this formula. A little would be fine, but your blender is putting too much in now. your candle makers want this scent for Champagne or Mimosa candles

My Big Fat Greek Candle

I need help!

I really like this scent it smell zesty and beautiful. I recently made 20 tealight candles with it using 464 soy wax and let them cure for about a week. When I lit one of them there was no scent through. Idk what I could have done wrong. Any suggestions?


Champagne Mimosas

Love this fragrance! Perfect for a champagne or Mimosas candles!! 🥂



OH MY GOD such a good inhibitor.



It was alright, it wasn't as good as I was hoping, Ithe had a funny after smell and I think the picture was misleading because it wasn't citrusy or smell like fruit at all, it smelled more like a laundry detergent


Great Spring Scent!

Made this scent in an 8oz candle tin and it smells great! Fantastic for spring. Have not burned yet, so will have to update on that. Smells similar to a grapefruit, but softer. Pretty and worth trying a sample, at least.
