Year after year vanilla reigns supreme as the best selling candle fragrance. With its intense vanilla aroma, subtle touch of cream, and exceptional performance in soy, palm, and paraffin; Very Vanilla may be your own best seller.

Phthalate Free

This fragrance is NOT compatible with our Reed Diffuser Base

Suggested Colors: Ivory, Brown
See our complete list of candle making dyes.

Note: Wondering why there is so much variation in feedback? We believe this is a solubility issue. The wax needs to be at 185 F when the fragrance oil is added or it will not go into solution. The result is poor cold/hot throw and a candle with all the fragrance oil pooled at the bottom of the container.

Very Strong!
Submitted on 2015-09-04

Everyone LOVES this scent - I am not fond of any vanilla (yes I know - a candle maker that dislikes generic scents!!!) however, this does smell like vanilla don't get me wrong - but it smells MUCH more like a vanilla cake. Someone else mentioned her kids thought she was baking a cake, so did mine! I actually labeled this one Cake Batter and everyone seems to agree. It is not a bad scent by any just smells VERY much like cake!!! :) it is a big seller. A lot of custom orders for larger sizes have been made for this one. Thanks for always being awesome!!!

Excellent Scent.. Very Happy

Love this Vanilla
Submitted on 2015-07-17

I initially wasn't sure about this vanilla when I first smelled it in the bottle but it truly is a great vanilla scent. One of my customers said that as she burned her candle, her children ran downstairs asking if she was baking a cake. The hot and cold throw are great in 444. I love it!

Submitted on 2015-07-12

Love this vanilla and it's a huge hit with my customers! Not too sweet and not at all powdery like some vanilla fragrance can be. Smells like something delicious is baking in the oven while burning. 1 oz of vanilla with 1 pd 444 soy wax

Customers love it
Submitted on 2015-05-27

Very Vanilla is a bit much for me personally, but my customers love it. Always sells out. And when I'm making the candles, my husband always runs downstairs, convinced I'm making a cake for dessert.

Submitted on 2015-04-29

I have smelled various vanilla fragrances but this vanilla is simply perfection! when I make this fragrance in 444, I definitely treat myself to a couple candles. Great job candle science, you are spot on with this scent

Submitted on 2015-03-16

This is a great vanilla scent! It's sweet smelling and it's great to have as a base to mix with other scents if you want to sweeten them up or give them a little extra something. I mixed it with coffee and the combination was a hit!

Very Strong and Best Seller for 8 years
Submitted on 2015-03-12

This Vanilla fragrance is AMAZING! My customers love it and it has been a best selling scent for the last 8 years.

Very vanilla is right!
Submitted on 2014-12-13

I was looking for a strong vanilla and this sure fits the bill! All you need to use is one ounce per pound or even less and poof! VERY vanilla. :)

Softly Intoxicating!
Submitted on 2014-12-11

Very veryyyy Vanilla! Stands alone beautifully and blends with so many holiday FOs. Our earthy Vanilla candles look so creamy rich, close your eyes and take a deep breath...intoxicating!

Submitted on 2014-11-16

This scent is extremly strong in the bottle, which made me think I wasn't going to like it in a candle. In the bottle it almost had an alcohol smell, but when I put it in a batch of Golden Brands 464, IT SMELLED AMAZINGLY PERFECT!! I love it! I have made a ton of these for a wedding coming up soon! The scent combined with the warm glow of the white soy wax as it burns in a clear mason jar has proven to be romantic and has quickly become a best-seller for me!!

Submitted on 2014-10-17

I love this vanilla! I used 1oz per 1lb GB464 in short, 2" diameter jars. Perfect! :)

Not so Very Vanilla
Submitted on 2014-09-29

I fell in love with this scent when I first bought it. I got 2 4oz bottles and was very happy. I just ordered a 16oz bottle and the scent is completely different... weak, not the same Very Vanilla at all. I spent a lot of money this time and am very unhappy that I didn't get the same product! Please can you make your product more consistent. I doubt that I will be buying it again if it is a guessing game as to what you end up with :(

Definitely Recommend
Submitted on 2014-09-24

My daughter & I are newbies at this. We made 2 (4oz) mason jars using 8oz. Soy Golden Brand 464 wax & 5oz. very vanilla as a test candle last night. We haven't lit them yet and we could smell it through out the house, amazing! To us it smells like cookies. Well worth buying for sure!

Submitted on 2014-09-24

I love this scent. I make the wax melts. I use 1 oz with 8 oz of soy wax. I use two squares of this to put in the tart warmer. I turn the warmer on at 8 in the morning and turn it off at 4:30. The two squares last usually three days. My customers at the bank I work at love it. On the other hand, my daughter, hates it. (but what does she know)

Mouthwateringly good!
Submitted on 2014-09-10

This smells so yummy and it makes you want to drink it out of the bottle. My mom says it makes her mouth water when she smells it. I use this with a few different combination oils and I just love it. Very strong cold and hot throw and has more of a bakery or cake batter scent to it than true vanilla.

AMAZING! Question though...
Submitted on 2014-08-20

I absolutely love this Vanilla scent. Question: is there a definite recommendation for how long to let candles cure before selling to customers?
Golden Brands 464 Soy Wax 1oz FO and 15 oz wax.

Amazing Scent
Submitted on 2014-08-12

This scent smells wonderful! Excellent cold and hot throw! A must have surprisingly from some of my male customer!!

8 oz tin filled the room in minutes
Submitted on 2014-07-28

Made samples in 8oz tin and within 15 minutes the room was filled with the sweet smell of vanilla...:)

GB464/12% FO/ECO 10/24hr cure

As a side note, there was someone on here that recommended pouring GB464 at 170...THANKS! I did 3 - 1 lb batches this weekend (4 different FO's and 4 different colors), all nice smooth, flat tops and NO FROST. I added FO at 185, stirred for 3 minutes then poured...great results. This worked great on tins, dont know how well the high pour temp will work on glass.

Great Hot & Cold Throw.
Submitted on 2014-07-11

I have been using this Vanilla for a few years and it is by far the best vanilla scent that I have ever used. I am surprised to see that people either love it, or hate it. Not much in between.

I use this in EcoSoya Advance Soy Wax and I have always had the best luck with cold throw and hot throw. I have never tried to mix this with any other scents because this is a great stand alone fragrance that everyone seems to love!

Great Hot Throw, (actually better than I anticipated)
Submitted on 2014-05-20

I finally got around to burning my sample (6%load in GB464). The cold throw was ok, not super strong, so I figured I would get a similar hot throw. I was definitely suprised by the great hot throw. It was able to fill my house with a light pleasing creamy vanilla scent with a little hint of cookie too. I did make sure to follow the directions of adding the FO at 185* and it seemed to work fine for me. I also poured at 160* and the candle turned out great. I will be adding this scent to my line. Thanks Candlescience!

Submitted on 2014-05-20

This scent was very disappointing. I made wax melts using GB 464 and they came out nice and all but the smell of this scent while burning gives me a headache and really makes me just want to throw it all out. I tried mixing it with a raspberry, as well as a blueberry oil that I have and it just does not seem to mix well at all with other scents. I still get the cloying overbearing cheap vanilla smell that gives me a headache. I was expecting a smooth, warm and creamy vanilla. I will continue to use the vanilla from my other oil source as theirs is much more to my liking. I love your scents candle science but this one need some tweaking.

Revision of last review
Submitted on 2014-05-08

To revise the last review I wrote, I have recently come to find that it is in fact not the oil that is changing my candles colors, it is to do with the wax and dye chip I was using. But it still stands that this FO smells amazing. :)

Smells great but turns a weird color!
Submitted on 2014-04-19

I used this (~1.5 oz/pound) in GB 444 and it turns a really strange color after burning! I used a yellow dye chip to make it more vanilla-y but after burning the bottom part of the jar and the wax that cools has turned a strange pinkish color. Does not affect the wonderful smell- which you can smell from outside my door- but concerns me a little. Worth a shot though!

Wonderful Vanilla XO
Submitted on 2014-04-04

I am using Soy GB444 & have been making candles about 8 months. This is my first Vanilla, even though I agree, it is a staple scent in any line! It smells wonderful cold or while burning. I am enjoying it personally while having it for sale. My business has only been open since February 2014. I am SURE this will be GREAT for my lil-shop!

Missing Vanilla Lace
Submitted on 2014-02-19

I was skeptical when purchasing this as I am very picky about vanilla fragrances. I've used the Vanilla Lace scent for several years , blending it in with other fragrances. Wow, was I disappointed that it was discontinued. Very Vanilla smells like a Yankee Candle scent... VERY in your face. Does not blend well with other scents, too over powering. If you're a vanilla fanatic, I'm sure you'll love this, but if you like a more subtle vanilla that can be mixed in with other fragrances, forget it. Please bring back Vanilla Lace!!

It's okay
Submitted on 2014-02-19

I had high hopes for Very Vanilla but unfortunately it has been disappointing. I must preface my comments by saying I absolutely love CandleScience, all of their FOs are very high quality and just the perfect concentration. I have tried oils from several other companies and none of them compare in performance. That being said I personally like Very Vanilla as a scent, however my review here is based on feedback from many of my customers. Most of them have commented that it smells "ok" but it isn't really much different than other vanilla candles they have smelt from other companies, this is in stark contrast to the 30 other scents I have from CS which people say really stand out from other products they have tried.

For this reason I will be going with CS French Vanilla on my next order. I'm sure others here may have better success with this fragrance.

Very Disappointed
Submitted on 2014-01-22

I was very excited about this smell. My boyfriend loves vanilla and I thought this would be perfect. When making the candle the smell was strong and "very vanilla". The cold throw was amazing. The whole house smelled like soft vanilla. I lit the candle expecting the fragrance to fill the room and got almost nothing. I have it burning two feet from me and can't smell anything. I am only able to to smell it if I put my nose directly over the top of the candle. In my small guest bathroom there was a faint smell. I used GB464 soy wax and put 1oz of fragrance per lb. I may try this again and double the fragrance but am worried it may be a waste of time and money. overall very disappointing instead of very vanilla.

"Very Vanilla" is a very accurate name! It's awesome I love it!

Submitted on 2013-12-09

This is definitely one of my best sellers in my store. I actually renamed it to "Mom's vanilla cream pudding" Customers love it and says the name fits it to a T! Thanks CS, keep this one going. I use GB464 (2lbs) to 3 oz. scent. ECO 10 wick!

Not a personal favorite...however;
Submitted on 2013-11-26

Personally, I am not a fond of this smell . Out of all the 16 scents i ordered this was the least favorite of all. Bit fake to me however i do like Candlescience and its excellent customer service. I will try to mix with other scents to see what i come up with.

Great classic vanilla

I bought a large sized based on previous reviews to use in GB 464. Smelled good out of the bottle. After pouring, the candle smelled like fake vanilla. Not the scent I was hoping for. Followed recommended directions regarding flash point and wax setup was fine. I'll keep trying other vanilla fragrances.

Submitted on 2013-03-12

this scent is SO STRONG. 1oz/1lb. just made my second purchase on this scent again. buy this scent!

A Must Have
Submitted on 2012-09-14

I use 1 1/2 ounce per pound in IGI 4627. Hot and cold throw are great but hot has been better for me. There is no guess work when you smell it. Very Vanilla delivers a warm enjoyable vanilla scent.

Submitted on 2012-06-15

I used this fragrance for my first attempt at candle making. It smells so delicious! It reminds me a bit of vanilla frosting, but without being too sickeningly sweet. I made the candles 2 days ago, and my place still has a wonderful vanilla aroma lingering in the air, I love it!

Soy candles and CP soap
Submitted on 2012-05-02

CP Soap: Discolors to a dark chocolate. No acceleration and no morphing. Behaves well in CP soap!
Soy Wax: Awesome cold and hot throw.
Smell: Like fake "vanilla frosting" lip balm. Love it!

Love this fragrance. One of my bestsellers.

Wonderful Vanilla !!!!
Submitted on 2012-02-26

This is a wonderful vanilla smell if your still looking for that perfect vanilla.I still find myself going and picking the vanilla up just to smell it , it is a little harsh right out of the bottle but once it was put into the wax it just transforms into something amazing!

Perfect vanilla !
Submitted on 2012-02-16

Out of the bottle it is not too sweet or chemically. I mixed this with equal parts rainwater and lavender and could not stop smelling the result ! Any one that I had smell this mixture was hooked so I will be adding this to my line. Awesome !

Submitted on 2011-09-28

I first used this oil back in 2009 when I started out and it was BY FAR THE BEST VANILLA! I had ever ordered; However, I have tried it a couple of times since and was HIGHLY disappointed I could barely smell it and I actually have lost the few vanilla loving customers I had dont know if I got a bad batch or has this recipe changed? if so please change it back!! I love you guys scents but am truly apprehensive about ordering Very Vanilla again need a good one!! Thanks

My favorite!
Submitted on 2011-09-27

If you like vanilla scent, you will LOVE this! Great hot/cold throw in GB464 soy wax with a 10% fragrance load. Will definitely be back for more!

Submitted on 2011-04-17

I left a previous review below. the scent was EXCELLENT. upon my 2nd order of the same fragrance, I was very disappointed. It did not seem like the same strength of scent out of the bottle and it was much weaker in the candles. I used the same amount of oil and wax (same type as before, as well)and it was not as strong as my previous order. I dont know if the supplier did not mix it the same or what. If do reorder this scent, I will stick to smaller quantities.

Excellent Vanilla!
Submitted on 2011-04-09

my friends snapped up all of the Very Vanilla candles that I made! Smelled like Buttercream. I was very pleased with the scent. It did not smell "cheap", as some vanilla scents do. I used 2 oz of fragrance per lb of EcoSoy Advanced.

Absolute ESSENTIAL to any candle line
Submitted on 2011-01-19

I must admit I am not a fan of Vanilla, however, it is an essential fragrance for any candle line. I used GB464, 16 oz candle tin and triple wicked with Eco 10. 1 1/2 ouce of fragrance used. Both cold and hot throw AMAZING! I performed my test burn in my large master bedroom ( for someone who does not like Vanilla...probably not a good idea!) the hot throw was so strong that 5 hours AFTER extinguishing the candle my room is infused with Vanilla. If you have clients that love Vanilla you MUST stock this fragrance.

Very Vanilla is very good.
Submitted on 2010-06-22

Although I am new to the candle buisness, this is the best vanilla I smelled yet. I have sampled 5 other sellers and this is the best vanilla of all of them. It is not the strongest scent ever made in the world, but for vanilla, is pretty darn good.

very vanilla

WOW!! Just ordered a sample size, and coming back for more. For serious Vanilla lovers. Make in GB464 Soy Wax and has both great cold and hot throw....Thanks CS, for another winner!!

Worst Vanilla Ever
Submitted on 2010-02-22

This had such great reviews, so I took a chance and purchased a large amount. Cold throw smells good, but there is very little to no scent when burning. This is the most disappointing Vanilla I have ever used! Container candles, IGI 4627, 4786 & 4630A

I love this vanilla, i made tarts with this for a friend, she loved them. I have tried several vanillas this one is tops.

Inconsistent Vanilla
Submitted on 2008-11-24

The first time I used Very Vanilla there was GREAT cold and hot throw, but after using it recently (a different bottle than what I used the first time), there was no hot throw at all. I was very disappointed because it was a favorite among customers.

Submitted on 2008-11-16

This vanilla is awesome. It is very strong in palm. I left my test burn candles on when i went shopping, when i came home you could smell it out side of my house. My customers love it. Will be buying over and over.

Submitted on 2008-11-14

Great cold and hot throw. I am wondering what happened to those that rated it 1 star. It is simply awesome!

I was really looking forward to this one, but was greatly disappointed when I opened the bottle for a sniff and smelled nothing but cough syrup! Tried it in a candle and the same results. Awful chemical smell! I have bought many CS scents and was always very satisfied with all of them, until now. I have an 8oz. bottle of scent that I have to toss out!

This fragrance oil is the bomb. We use it in containers, tarts, and teas and everybody loves them. The throw in soy wax (GB464, 474) is outstanding.

WOW!!! Best Vanilla Ever!!!
Submitted on 2008-02-01

This is the most true vanilla I have found. CS You have done it again! I used 10% in my GB 464 and wow did the scent smell up my living room without lighting the candle. Fastest sellout I've had. Even my customers that say, Oh I'm not a vanilla candle person.

Best Vanilla Ever

I hesitate buying vanillas but needed one for a fundraiser. I have always gotten TOP NOTCH scents from CS and this one is no exceptiom. It is strong without being overbearing and deliciously creamy. I will definetley contiue to use this scent. I wicked up and didn't even need to. Thanks for your fantastic products.

So Yummy!!!

This is the best vanilla ever! Smells sweet and creamy, but not overly buttery or frosting-ish like a lot of other vanilla's. This is my new favorite vanilla:)
