i want to eat it

Straight out the bottle I wasn't a fan. However, as I mixed it with the wax it smelled throughout my house. The "Hot throw" is awesome. I used 1oz. per 1lb. in 6 oz. jars. Will be ordering more soon.

Love it

This is one of my best sellers I use 1oz -1.5oz fragrance load to 1lb of g464 soy wax in 4 oz Mason jars with #10 wick size perfect both hot and cold, in the warmers this is wonderful fills the room a lot quicker than the candle I love it


Smells just like Strawberry Shortcake! I just wanna eat it!

Great smell!!

I tried this fragrance and I absolutely love it and My whole family loves it also!!

love it

I absolutely love this fragrance; its one of my favorites I use it in gb464 and I use the eco wic #10 in the 4oz jelly jar realy great scent throw; I use 11/2 oz per pound of wax smells up the whole house good job cs with this one

Soap crafter

Just used Strawberry Shortcake FO in some red soaps. Mmmm - smells delicious! I thought I had a good strawberry scent from another vendor but I was wrong. This one will thrill my customers!

Odd smell..

I LOVE strawberry scents, one of my favorite smells, but this one has a very strange chemical smell to me.. maybe if you mixed it with some vanilla or Birthday cake scented oil it would tone the "odd" smell down. As far as the throw goes, I had no problems with it, it actually was pretty strong.

Candles By Cherryl

This scent is the absolute best. I have made 3 batches of it and all come out perfect. My customers are very pleased and so am I.

In love!!!

Me and my husband loves this scent. Customers cant wait until I restock.

This is perfection. Everyone that has smelled it made into a candle loves it.
It is plenty strong and takes you to summer eating strawberry short cake. I have yet to hear anyone say anything but great things about it. I'm not big into food scents but really love this one.

It's ok!

I don't know,but I can't smell it! Yet I can not stop selling it! Everyone loves it!

This is one of my best-selling candles. It smells like a very fresh version of strawberry shortcake, but I would almost say it smells like strawberry yogurt in a way. This is an excellent summer scent.

It's a great scent, but I was going to discontinue this one, just because of the artificial smell of it, but my customers just won't have it! Men in particular really love this one, and I have no idea why. That's a good enough reason for me to keep it on.

Bottle too strong, Candle too good!?

This went from terrible to great. When I smelled this oil in the bottle I gagged. It was really syrupy sweet, way too intense for me. I decided to make one batch with just Strawberry and another with it mixed with Very Vanilla to tone it down. The cold throw of the plain Strawberry was less offensive, still kind of strong and weird for me. The Strawberry Vanilla was actually kind of nice, but I was not expecting to love either. Now I've burned both and surprise surprise, they are both really nice. Maybe this is because the hot throw is slightly weak, as others have mentioned, but this worked in my favor. You can definitely smell the hot throw, it's just waaaay less intense the what you expect from the bottle. Strawberry hot smelled like strawberry ice cream, not gag sweet but really nice. Strawberry Vanilla also is light and pleasant, not too sweet, but still so yummy! If you want a really nice not too strong sweet strawberry scent then get this. Some hot throws are not obvious by the bottle. Also I use the max amount of fragrance in my 464 soy candles and mix at 185 each time so I really think the lighter hot throw is just what you're gonna get with this one.

Nice if you like food fragrances. Too weak though for my taste.

I have had no problems at all with this fragrance .I've used it in eco soya pb and gb 464 with excellent results .most of my customers love this fragrance and so do i.keep up the good work candle science. Love your products!

well, it smells good in the bottle...

I purchased this scent based off of the reviews..Well, just have to say, this fragrance smells amazing in the bottle! Yet, the hot and cold throw is extremely week. I used the highest recommended amount and nothing...The cold throw smells faintly of strawberries and cream, but while burning, the fragrance is so light. I am unable to pinpoint a scent! Sort of disappointed because I LOVE the smell in the bottle.


This has such a great throw in my 464 soy wax. Everyone seems to love this scent the best. I am thinking about making some wax tarts as well.

This scent is great. Smells just like the real thing. A lot of my candle customers are in love!


Love this strawberry shortcake fragrance oil! I can't get over how real it smells. I use in in GW 464 with Eco wicks, and the scent throw is awesome!


I was super excited to get this scent. The scent is right on but the hot and cold throw is not very strong. I was disappointed. But all in all the scent is great just wish it had a stronger throw.
I use the soy pillar wax

Rich and sweet

This is a wonderful fragrance, with a really deep, rich strawberry scent. And it lasts a long time in my oil burner. Will definitely purchase this scent again.

Love it

This way by far my favorite and I know you are suppose to use it for candles but I used to it to make tarts and I used paraffin wax and my customers are in love with this scent.


Not what I was expecting at all. It smells very nice and strong OOB, like strawberries n cream but seems to get very softened in soy wax. I use GB 464 with 6 percent FO in a 9 ounce candle and all I smell when burning is a faint strawberry smell. Based on the prior reviews I expected this to be a very strong Strawberry shortcake. I only bought a four ounce bottle and will experiment with using more FO to get stronger hot throws.

Exceeded expectations!

I had a good feeling about this fragrance after reading through reviews, so it was on my list to try. I made some sample tins (GB464).. and oh my god, I literally wanted to eat this candle! The sweet, creamy, strawberry goodness gives off such a warm and yummy smell. Just like real life fresh made strawberry shortcake! Mmmm

weird smell

There is virtually not another scent that I love more than strawberry shortcake, and was very disappointed when this one by cs fell short. There was an undescribable unpleasant lingering stank that would not vacate my nostrils, along with a hint of strawberries. Perhaps it was the batch I got, but I will not order this scent again. I used naturewax c3 100% soy with a 6% fragrance load.

Love this scent!

It smelled great in the bottle, great when I mixed it and I was hoping it would smell just as good when I burned the test tart. I was not disappointed. I love this scent! I used 1 oz. per pound of ecosoya PB. I burned the tart in my bedroom and could smell it throughout the whole house! This one is definitely a keeper!


used this scent to make candles with IGI 4630 and also in my gel air fresheners. It was excellent in both applications. I could smell it throughout the entire house and my neighbors could smell it outside


This is by far the BEST, strawberry shortcake scent ever. I have ordered from other sites and ended up disappointed - but this is WONDERFUL!! Thank you CS!


I got a sample and make a couple candles using GB 444 Soy. One week later I gave one as a birthday gift when attending a dinner party in a local restaurant. Everyone at the surrounding tables could smell this candle and thought it was wonderful. Its one of my best sellers!

OMG I Love It

You smell the strawberry and cake in this scent, yummy!

deliciously awesome

I have purchased alot of fragrance oils from different companies and this is by far the strongest oil in my collection...we can not get enough of this scent.used in 464 wax...delicious

This one is GREAT!!!

This one smells great...both hot and cold throw in Golden Brands 444!!! My personal favorite...


This scent is so true that it makes me hungry!


I was surprised to smell FRESH strawberries and a vanilla cake so true. This is strong and wonderful. What a wonderful combination.

Our BEST Strawberry ever!

We recently added this one to our line in parafin and soy. I will be doing this fragrance in votives also. It was the best seller in our shop last week. Not an overpowering fragrance, but true to description and very appealing. Another winner!


This is so juicy and fruity and sweet. Very complex fragrance that gives you layers of scent. I smell sugared strawberries right away and that gives way to the cakey vanilla fragrance after. This smells so incredible. LOVE IT!
