I used Soy 646 wax. OOB this fragrance had a strong alcohol/fake smell and little strawberry or guava came through. I will say as it cured in the candle the strawberry and guava came through but it has a very fake/sweet throw to it. I'm not sure what my customer base will think, but as for me... it's ok... but by no means good or even great.

We did not experience any separation, but this fragrance was very slow to reach an emulsion and required extra stick blending to reach a light trace. However, once it came to trace it did start to thicken and the batter turned a honey mustard color. After 24 hours the soap smelled amazingly delicious and was a dark gold color we’ve never seen before. Due to the discoloration it was difficult to see if a full gel was reached but the center has vague signs of overheating, so we recommend keeping a close eye on this one if you plan to insulate or oven process. After 30 days the scent is strong and the bars have discolored to a brown shade. The fragrance is fairly easy to work with but the discoloration will present a bit of a challenge for choosing a color palette.
I love this scent so much! The cold throw is amazing, as well as the hot throw! Every time I make candles with Strawberry Guava, it is my first one to sell out. Very popular among my friends and locals. Not only can I smell the strawberry and guava notes, I also smell the notes of passionfruit, mango, and vanilla. If you're looking for just a strawberry scent or something that is not on the sweet side, I would not get this one. But if you are looking for a sweet tropical scent - I would give this one a shot! It is amazing and definitely one that will always be on my line of candles! Works well on 464 and ES CB-135.
I am a fan of this FO. It is EXTREMELY sweet but has an amazing hot and cold throw with 6006. No discoloration to the wax either. I definitely toned down the amount of FO because it's soooooo sweet but it's a good summer option.
I am usually behind the Candle Science fragrances. But this one... Just smells... fake. It doesn't hold true notes of fruit to me. It comes across as very strong and muddled. Reminds me of a fruity chewing gum.
Since I have it, using it as a base and adding other scents to it. So far, it is really more a sugary note than anything distinctive. Which was a let down. The other fruit scents have been dead on.
This is our top candle seller by far, were always having to restock, please don't ever let it go! Love it!
Strawberry Guava is outstanding for candles. Smells so good and lasts forever. It’s requested by my clients for bathroom and kitchen. In soap I can’t stand it. I made a small batch with goat’s milk and olive, coconut and palm oils. The smell morphed badly and I had to disposed it.
Please never get rid of this Scent! My customers love this in candle or wax melt!!
This FO is a knock your socks and blow me away fragrance! It is a true strawberry fragrance, totally! I used to work in the strawberry fields as a teen and this has the true sun ripened fresh picked strawberries smell! It's just awesome! I made candles and wax tarts with this FO almost a week ago in a good soy wax and this is taking no time at all to cure and boy, the cold throw in my products so far is just amazing! I can't wait until they are fully cured! Love, love, love, this and just ordered a gallon of the new formula. I hope the new version is just as strong. Can someone comment and tell me if it is or not?
Strawberry Guava is amazing scent I just can't keep enough customers love the strawberry smell
I will continue to order from strawberry Guava from CS.
All of my customers love this scent! It smells fruity fresh and it gives an excellent CT and HT. I make this in all of my jars and wax melts and it's so pleasant and not overpowering.
This smells amazing! It is a very fruity scent so some may not like it but my customers seem to love it.
I love CS and all their scents that I’ve bought so far. I bought this as the free sample and I’m glad I did. It is very overpowering and has a scent of a juul pod. It doesn’t smell like strawberry very much, and I tried to use it in a candle and sugar scrub, but it was way too overpowering and making me nauseous that I had to throw it out. I’m really sad because I was looking forward to a fruity tropical scent, but this wasn’t it. It smelt very artificial and I would not buy it again.
I love CS scents and all the ones I’ve bought, but I would not recommend this if you can’t handle the overpowering scents.
When I open this scent I’m smacked in the face with strawberry. I also know that you cannot judge a scent by the smell out of the jar. In my wax melts and candle tins it has become a very popular scent. It is a very commercial smell like you’d find in lip balms and body washes.
This is a nice FO if you're looking for that very ripen, sweet strawberry scent. However, strawberry guava is a type of guava and does not actually smell like strawberries. After reading the description I obviously figured there would be a touch of strawberry to the scent but this it was disappointing to open the bottle and smell straight strawberries without even a hint of sweet, yet tart Guava.
smells amazing i just got it! ive only smelt it from the bottle and it smells good but very strong! cant wait to smell it when i make it
Wow this oil is strong and smell so good my customers are happy
I love it, my customers love it! While I was making it, it had the whole house smelling decadent! I will definitely be ordering more of this scent!
I am so in love with this smell! It is so sweet, it smells like a strawberry starburst! The cold throw is fantastic! I haven't had a chance to test burn yet, but i'm using it in a wax melt so far and it's great! Smells the same OOTB as it does when made. I labeled this one "Strawberry Sugar". Will definitely use this one forever.
This is scent is one of my top sellers in candles..I cant make this fast enough to stay on the shelf. I can't say how much I love this scent!
This is by far my favorite scent, has a nice fruity scent, it smells great through the entire house
Love this strawberry scent because it is not overly sweet line some. Has a rustic earthy strawberry scent that fills the house. Totally one of my favorites!!
I’m not a fan. I was looking for something with a more natural strawberry scent this definitely smells a lot different than I imagined.
Очень вкусный и стойкий аромат! Очень яркий! Минус в том, что быстро ускоряет след и темнеет мыло. Но можно адаптировать под определённый дизайн!
Such a fruity and yummy FO, one of our best selling candles as we mix it with another FO as a twist!
We are always re-stocking! Must try!
Used this fragrance in a batch of cold process soap. It excellerated so much, it hot processed right in the bowl in seconds. I ended up scooping it in the mold at gel stage. No ricing, just hyperspace exceleration. The soap took on a matte pink color opposed to the bright pink I added. It still looks great and smells amazing after a week. I wi buy this again for bath bombs and may just use it in hit process soapmaking. Keep an eye on this one.
My first time making candles and playing around with different scents and my highest feed back is from this scent particularly. I love it so much I had to keep one for myself.
My customers love love love this amazing scent, it smells like the real strawberries. I can't get enough of this scent. Always the first to finish. I will continue to buy this scent forever.
OMGosh.... This smells amazing!! I made a novelty candle with this and it turned out great! the cold throw and hot throw were right on it! I used soy wax 464, heat it up to 200 add it the FO at 180 and poured at 160. I recommend this one hands down
Giving it 3 stars because cold throw is Really strong but I'm not a fan. It reminds me of red flavored chap-stick. My daughter liked it. We'll see after I light my tester.
love love love this fragrance. gives me sour candy vibez
first impression is that the smell is sweet and artificial, reminds me of cough medicine.. good cold throw ok hot throw....customers smell to like the smell...but not my favorite
This fragrance is beautiful! A best seller. So sweet and delicious in a very classy way. Doesn’t smell like cheap candy like other similar oils I’ve tried in the past.
I was very disappointed. The smell was way too sweet and artificial. It gave me a headache. Smells like too sweet candy, not pleasant.
Awesome scent.....will purchase again! Did have slight acceleration, but nothing you can't still work with!
I didn't get much fresh strawberry out of this FO, more of a fake strawberry drowned out by pink guava. It's okay, sweet and bright and reminds me of a light, sugary pink. It might be great to mix with a lemon-y scent to get a "pink lemonade" type blend. I don't get any "tropical" vibes from it, it just smells like pink sugary fruit to me.
This fragrance oil is hands down the best! I'm learning that candle science have the best smell, quality, and hold their scent well. I have purchased a few others that are marketed as strawberry guava; there is not even the slightest comparison! The smell of this is lush and rich. I will only buy this oil from now on.
I used this fragrance oil with golden 444 melted at 185 added frag at 140 poured at 105 and any imperfections I fix with a heat gun. This one sold out quickly.
Id say this is ok for a bathroom or small office
But NOT a whole house fragrance.
This is NOT a strong hot or cold throw.
If your looking for strong this is not it.
My Batch; 72oz(6-12oz jars) 464 wax I use 6oz fragrance tried One week and two week cure time.
OMG! I just received this scent today and when I tell you it is amazing. It literally makes you want to drink the bottle. It’s a must have for sure, and I’m not all into fruity scents.
This smells like lip smuckers, or maybe like chapstick? It's not terrible, just very fake smelling.
I bought this because I have smelled guava scented candles in the store before and loved them! Strawberry and guava sounded like a great combination, but the fragrance was sickly sweet with a very artificial strawberry top note. But everyone likes something different and I can definitely say it has a good throw if you like the scent.
Such an awesome scent. I’d used Strawberry Guava for the first time. And it hit right on the nose. It were many samples I made of it. Gave them out. I had no complaints.
I used this scent to make wax melts (parasoy) and WOW! The throw on this scent is crazy! I love it so much, I’m buying a bigger bottle.
This scent is phenomenal. OOB you are immediately blasted with rich, wild strawberry aroma, with lingering undertones of tropical fruit. Super strong and yummy!
This sells online, flea markets, everywhere. This smell is amazing!
I’m a little indifferent with this scent as I prefer the Passion Guava myself, but, my customers love this one and they are reordering in the regular. The consensus is, it flies off the shelf in their shops! Yay!
Great fragrance, more guava than strawberry. I can see how this would be a good seller for candles and melts. I used a sample for cold process soap today. I am giving it four stars as it had moderate acceleration working at room temperature.
Did my first flea market and sold out of this and the peach nectar. I took samples and burned them they were coming from across the street. I also had one of the vendors purchase one then sent her sister back to buy the rest. Already purchased a bigger size to use in body butter as well. Smells terrific definitely a staple
I love the scent of strawberry guava! It smells like sweet strawberries. It's a great summer fragrance and holds it scent. I use it in melt & pour and it has become one of my favorites. Candlescience has the best fragrances compared to other companies I've used.
Made my first candles and got this as a tester. I wasn't terribly interested in it however I figured it might be a nice scent and OOB I thought it was amazing. First candle I made and enjoy the scent. Poured it at about 6.25% and love the throw however at times I'm wishing the HT was a little more, however we can always improve that. For those who love it are you going much higher on the fragrance load?
I got a sample of this and fell in love. It smells so fresh and juicy. Made a few tiny test candles and have already sold a full sized one based on the tester. Very good hot and cold throw in my GW 464. Can't wait to take these to my next show.
I bought a sample of this during the sale and I made body butter with it. I'm going to need a bigger bottle of this to make a ton of other things with it.
This is a definite winner! Poured last night and immediately fell in love with it. Can't wait to bring it to the farmers market!
We love it and plan to make many candles with this scent. It will be a great addition to our candle line for spring and summer. It smells like strawberries with something else I can't describe but it is a winner for our business.
It's fruity. It's delicate. It's got appeal. There's not much strawberry just enough to add to the sweetness. I just made tarts with the GB 494 @ 7% with this and it's smell amazing in here. I opened my door and my neighbor asked if I was making candy. I asked her what it smelled like and she said fresh twizzlers. I totally agree with her. This one is definitely worth a try.
I love this scent! Fills the entire house 😊
My customers LOVE this scent!
If you're looking for a really good strawberry without the fake plastic-y notes, this is it! Strawberry is a tough one to nail, and Candlescience did it!!! I don't really smell anything else but strawberry, which I was hoping for! Can't wait to try this in bath and body products! So fresh and realistic!
One of my favorites so far! Also one of my best sellers
Terrible it smells mostly of strawberries with a hint of another fruit definitely not guava. Smells like cough syrup I hate this scent and I regret buying it
I love it! HT and CT are on point. I think it smells more strawberry than guava, but you get the tropical flare to it. So good! Thanks CS for another good one.
