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.

Suggested Colors: Green, Yellow, Pink, Magenta

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.

Hi! We're so glad you enjoy this scent! The name of this fragrance oil has been changed to Sparkling Grapefruit. It’s the same great fragrance oil, just with a new name so there has been no change to the formula. I hope this helps but please feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns to [email protected]!

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.

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!
