Details

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.

Note Profile:
Top: Vanilla
Middle: Buttercream
Base: Vanilla

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.

Not a good vanilla :(

I did not like this scent. Upon opening the bottle I was hit with an overly buttery scent. Too little vanilla, waayyy to much butter. Kind of glad I ordered a sample size and not a bigger bottle.

Candle Maker

I love this scent, I use it in a few mixes. It's a best seller for me. Works perfectly with soy.

great throw

this is a great straight vanilla with great throw with a 7 day cure using GB415 soy wax and parasoy wax melts

My Go To Vanilla

This is my go-to Vanilla and one that my customers love. I sell out at every event it's so popular. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a great vanilla fragrance.

Tone it down!

I basically just ruined s good combo by adding just a smidge of this fragrance. It’s way too dessert smelling! You guys need to work on a softer vanilla scent. Sorry.

What IS Vanilla?

The reviews for this FO were varied when I bought it, but I figured it's just a preference issue or something. Upon receiving it, I believe it's actually much more heavily dependent on what you think of when you think "vanilla." If you want that sweetness that you smell with vanilla flavored cakes, ice cream, candies, etc. you're going to be disappointed. If you want the scent you get when you open a bottle of vanilla extract, you'll be very pleased with this. It isn't a candied vanilla or a sweet vanilla, it's just a straight up pure vanilla scent. That being said, as with vanilla extract, less is more. I was slightly dizzy and more than a little nauseous after just one sniff of this from the bottle. I'm sure it will settle down a bit once in a candle or soap (haven't tested it yet), but I can't say for sure. I will say that if you or your clients/gift recipients are sensitive to heavy smells, this might be one that you skip. It really does get in your nose and it doesn't leave until it's good and ready.

Basically Vanilla Yogurt

This FO smells like vanilla yogurt in a candle. Not like good vanilla beans or vanilla extract (I make my own, so very familiar with that smell) but like the artificial vanilla you get in a Yoplait yogurt or something similar. In general I love Candle Science scents but this is just not a good choice for a true vanilla... though people seem to like it! Just don't expect accuracy.

Awesome Vanilla!

This is a wonderful go-to for pairing with other scents! I've made candles with Very Vanilla and Lavender that smelled like a heavenly spa. I've paired this vanilla with Fresh Coffee and also with Chocolate Fudge. Can't wait to try more combinations!

This fragrance doesn't smell like pure vanilla to me. It smells more like butter cream. Though it doesn't smell pure, I still love it and so does my customers!

Vanilla with Butter

So, ..... I like this, but I would not describe it as purely a vanilla fragrance. Definitely vanilla with butter, ... lots and lots of butter. Has a great cold and hot throw, but if you are using this in a blend of FO's, beware and use a small percentage. This baby likes to steal the show.

Can of vanilla icing

Usen in Para-Soy blend at 10% is very strong hot and cold. I'm not a vanilla person but this sells pretty well. You have to heat the wax to 185° no less when adding fragrance. And pour at exactly 170° and it turns out perfect. I let them cool slowly in a slightly warm, cooling down oven to eliminate sinking.

Horrible - Cloying

I needed a vanilla in my fragrance vault. No, I give it a F. Gives me a nauseous feeling. I am hoping to find a super clean vanilla scent and this wasn't it.

True Vanilla

First time ordering with CS and I will never order elsewhere! The turn time on “priority shipping” was incredibly fast, beyond any vendor I have ever used. The fragrance oils are spot on or “leaf on”! Very Vanilla, cold throw is 10 and warm throw is 10!
CandleScience is user friendly, educational, reasonably priced and honest!
Win win win!

Definitely Vanilla

If you like vanilla you will love this. It smells like a can of vanilla icing. You have to heat the wax to 185 degrees before adding fragrance oil to get best fragrance and pour at 170 degrees. I used at 10% with para soy blend ig6006 wax. It is very strong hot and cold. 10 minutes after lighting the scent fills my entire house. It sells pretty good.

Love this scent!

I renamed it Vanilla cake cause that's what it reminds me of. Has an excellent CT and HT! I sold out of it already!

Smells...off

The smell of this vanilla is not rich and buttery as I had hoped which is surprising because CS has the best scents. It seems to have a strange, almost chemical like scent to it. It's not terrible, It's okay if you just smell it on it's own, but when compared to other vanilla scents you can tell it is off and has the weird "something" about it.

I used Very Vanilla for my very first candles and it worked well for me. I added 1 oz. at 185 degrees to 16 oz of 464, turned out great. My friends loved it.

What? No.....

I believe CandleScience has some of the best FOs around, so the only conclusion that I can draw from them carrying Very Vanilla is that this is the best vanilla that is out there in the marketplace that they have available to them and it sells well because everyone needs a vanilla. I say this because it is so off, sickly and strange as to be utterly unusable alone or as a mixer, that maybe the alternatives are just, worse? (If there ARE better vanillas out there, please CS can you offer some others?)

Not a fan- smells rotten

Very vanilla came highly recommend and i was excited when i got my package. however it smells sweet in a rotten way on one hand and like medicine on the other hand.
I definitely can't use it alone and I'm not in a position for returns so i'll have to play around with blending it.

re-reading all the great reviews here and thinking maybe i got a bad batch :((

Smells almost like butter Cream

Gave this 4 stars only because if wasn't "straight vanilla" to me, which is what I was looking for.. It smells great, but its more DELICIOUS like vanilla cake or buttercream icing. Used in 464 soy wax 1oz per 1lb Very strong cold throw, waiting on cure time to determine hot throw, I think I will diff use this in the future, just not what I was looking for in terms of just a straight vanilla. (I will try to remember to update on hot throw once cure time is up)

Delicious, Buttery Vanilla!

I'm really pleased with this scent. Like other's have said, it isn't exactly a vanilla bean scent, but much more buttery - like frosting or pastries. It really is wonderful, and I got an excellent cold throw. The hot throw isn't quite as strong as I would like it to be, but I'm thinking this may have been a wax temperature issue or due to the % FO I used. Everyone in my house LOVES this smell and I look forward to using it again!

Does the trick

This is a vanilla with a nutty undertone. It's not going to smell like pure vanilla bean. I mixed it with cinnamon and it rounded out the scent nicely.

Really strong, but great scent!

Beginner

First time burning my very vanilla candle I made 3 days ago and it smells really good!

So good I want to eat it!

I got this scent as a sample and right out of the bottle it smells exactly like vanilla extract! Which I love! I made a sample batch with in my palm wax candles and oh my goodness!! it smells amazing! Very Strong scent throw and smells just like a birthday cake! I had two guests come over at different times while I had my candle going and both friends asked if I was baking a cake! If you like the smell of vanilla cake.... this ones for you! I loved it so much I bought a 16oz bottle and already made some more!

Not my favorite

There was something about this that didn't sit right with me. I have tried several vanilla scents before and this definitely isn't on the top of my list. I don't know but just not quit there for me. Perhaps I got a bad batch (I purchased 5 pounds).

Vanilla Cake Batter

I REALLY enjoy this scent but I'm definitely renaming it "Vanilla Cake Batter" vs Vanilla. Smells just like a Vanilla cupcake. Personally, I find this is true, but then a coworker just came over to me and said "hmm, this vanilla one smells like cake batter." I like layering this in my candles with chocolate fudge fragrance, it REALLY has a cake smell then.
BUT, not a TRUE vanilla....and I'm okay with that.

Very Vanilla Indeed

This is the very best vanilla. I will definitely be buying more.

My favorite vanilla

I love this true vanilla smell! It's a wonderful vanilla scent and adds such body to my candles.

Best Vanilla

This scent was with us at the start of our company and has stayed the course! It is a great vanilla, very much like vanilla extract or something that you would use in baking. We love this Vanilla, and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a classic vanilla!

You don't even need to light it

This is the Best Vanilla I have used. I made a few candles last night (Pomegranate Cider) and vanilla. This morning I could still smell the vanilla.
I use it with the Soy 444 wax. I just love it!

Newbie

I am soooooo excited to have found this site and its products...I just made a candle using Vanilla, Lilac and Lavender. It smells so good and the throw (hot and cold) is amazing!!! I am officially in business 😌😌😌😌

Candles By Cherryl

Great scent. I use Nature wax c-3 and it smells amazing.

Still one of my favs

I love this oil! I've never had a problem. Mixes fine and super strong when burning !

Vanilla Cupcake

While others are very right in saying this vanilla smells like a cupcake, I find it is just that. It is much less a vanilla scent, as it is more of a birthday cake scent. It is not bad if that is what you are looking for, but this one is not really a vanilla.

Great if you like smell of burning rubber

This fragrance oil gave off the weirdest chemical smell when added to the wax. It reminded me of tires burning. Out of the bottle it smells strongly of butterscotch. I love candle science but this one just doesn't smell right.

Good for the first time

I received this in the Soy candle making kit and when you smell if from the bottle it smells just like cupcakes! I thought this scent would be a great one to make my first candles with. I did a pound of GB 464 Soy wax and I did an ounce of the fragrance. The cold throw smelt so good after it cured but when I did a test burn after letting it sit for 2 days I wasn't as impressed with it. Next time I may do 1.5 ounces to a pound of wax!

When smelling the bottle of fragrance, it was very strong and had an odd sweet scent to it. Poured some candles and I'm still not completely happy. I was wondering if there were other scents that would blend well with the very vanilla. I normally like vanilla but this left a lingering weird smell in my house for a day.

Perfect

This is such a fantastic scent! It reminds me of a cupcake! One of the best vanillas I have ever smelled. My husband liked this so much I had to bake after because it made him hungry 😂

Best Vanilla Ever

This is seriously the best vanilla ever. It's not your typical sugar cookie type vanilla, it's more along the lines of a creamy vanilla buttercream. It is so fragrant. The hot and cold throws are incredible. If you're looking for a good vanilla, look no further!

Warm, Yummy Vanilla!

Tried a few other scents trying to find the best Vanilla scent, and have to say that this one is the best. I used it at 10% in 464 and it was EXTREMELY POWERFUL. Would be happy to go in at 5% next time, and this is coming from someone who likes a candle that packs a major punch. I lit this in the kitchen and when walking down the stairs (appx 30' away) I could SMELL THIS THING! So yes...go lighter than I did. It does tint the wax slightly yellow just fyi.

Vanilla love

This was sent in my first kit, it smelled so good my son thought I was baking a cake! It's one of my favorites so far.

Impressed!

I am not a lover of any candle scents that imitate foods, bakery, edible, etc however; this is amazing. I tested it only because I know that a lot of people like Vanilla and I have to say I am hooked. I have a large house (two story), I did a test of 2 candles on the first floor and within the hours my upstairs smelled like a beautiful Vanilla. Will make it a re-order going forward.

VERY strong

I use this to blend with other oils and I find that I have to use a VERY small amount of it to get a vanilla scent in my blends. A little goes a long way, which is fine with me! To my nose, it's a true vanilla and both cold and hot throws are fabulous in soy wax.

Horrible

Horrible is all I have to say about this FO.

I was looking for a vanilla bean scent to mix in with a couple of other oils to create on scent. This one is way too sweet! Smells like vanilla buttercream, which is what it should probably be labeled as.

Smells like cough syrup in CP soap!

I was really excited about this scent out of the bottle but in CP soap it's terrible. It made me gag everytime I sniffed it so I had to throw it away. I could see this scent being great in candles but not in CP soaps...unless you like the scent of cough syrup.

I just made candles with this & it smells wonderful. Has a true vanilla scent & I don't notice the chemical smell others have mentioned.

I normally really hate vanilla candles, so I was expecting this scent to make me nauseated. I was very pleasantly surprised to find that it is not overpowering at all and is more of a creamy vanilla scent. I would say it's close in scent to Birthday Cake. I actually add this in to other scents as well to change it up.

I bought this to make some samples and when we first opened the bottle the scent was very strong and somewhat smelled like vanilla. We tried it out anyways and it just didn't smell right. I saw someone had mentioned it smelled like chemicals which is true. Even after we lit them it was too strong for us but at least our neighbor enjoyed it. Maybe next time I'll use less fragrance but I doubt I'll be purchasing it again. Very Disappointed.

I want to like it...

I want to like this scent, but I just can't get down with it. There's something about it that I can't quite put my finger on that is overwhelming. The scents I've used with it have not done well either. I think I'll try the 'Cake' scent for my vanilla uses in the future.

This isn't a perfect vanilla, but my customers like it just fine. I sell it as Vanilla Cream. I think it's a good idea to have a basic vanilla scent in your line, just because it typically appeals to everybody.

Awesome

smelled great!

When used properly...

As the Note attests to at the top of the page, you will get a wide variation of scent type if you don't add the oil at the proper temperature. I was one who used this improperly at first and hated it. It made me nauseated. When I tried again (for a custom order) I ended up loving it. You have to make sure it's added at 185 degrees. It is a bit sweet out of the bottle and with a cold throw, but has great vanilla scent when burning.

Tooo sweet and nothing like vanilla

I personally didn't enjoy this fragrance. I enjoy the smell of vanilla but this fragrance smelled very sugary. Very sweet and artificial I was very surprised how off the smell was honestly.

Very vanilla-More Like Very Vanilla BEAN

I think this has a great scent in both cold and hot throw! This is a very light vanilla fragrance. I was worried about this smelling fake but it actually smells EXACTLY like vanilla beans! YUM! This will definitely be a part of my candle line!

Bottle content

A lot of people are saying the bottle wasn't full. I had the same problem, BUT then I read the bottle where it says the FO is weighed so the levels in the bottles may vary. :)

Strong and Sultry Vanilla

I love this scent. It is a strong, sultry, and sophisticated vanilla. If you're looking for a less intense vanilla go with Cake, which brings out more of an icing scent. Great hot and cold throw with 464 soy wax. I honestly think more often than not the bad throws come from mixing at the wrong temperature than from the fragrance being subpar, although some certainly do turn out stronger, namely food scents is seems.

Great smell, but not a full bottle

I love the Very Vanilla fragrance oil. I mix it with lavender and I plan on trying another fragrance combination with it so this time I purchased the 8 oz bottle. However, when I received my order, it looked like the bottle was used by almost 2 oz. The reason I realized it is because I also bought an 8 oz. bottle of Apple Harvest and there was a significant difference. I love Candle Science and I will continue to buy all of my supplies from them, so I'm just hoping this was a fluke thing.

Smells like vanilla yogurt

This vanilla scent specifically reminds me of how vanilla bean yogurt smells. it's a very strong vanilla scent.

Know wonder it's the best seller...

This is by far my favorite CS scent. It has excellent cold and hot throw in Ecosoya PB and CB Xcel. It also last a long time in wax melts. This is also my husband's favorite.

Amazing

This is one of my best sellers absolutely amazing hott and cold through.

I love this fragrance.
Absolutely nothing bad to say about it.

Very Vanilla

Smells amazing! Exactly what I wanted. Can't wait to start making them!

Yum!

This smells amazing! So excited to start making my candles!

Delicious!

Smells so delicious! Wonderful hot and cold throw, smells like vanilla frosting or cake. So good.

Gave me a headache

This scent was way too strong for myself and my boyfriend's sense of smell. At first, he thought I was baking- but as he got closer, he didn't like the smell. It gave us both a headache. For us, this wasn't a homerun- maybe for someone else it will be a wonderful scent.

Wow...do not like this vanilla AT ALL! Has a very strange chemical scent to it. I hope it burns/melts without this funky odor...got great reviews, so I am seriously confused...I am looking for a ver good sugar cookie scent. When I searched for it, it said CS CARRIED IT BUT I DONT SEE IT ANYWHERE. Discontinued? Any recommendations would be appreciated. I want it to smell like a GC sugar cookie candle.

Best vanilla

This is one of the best vanillas I have tried. Love it. I love all candle science fragrances and don't think you'll be disappointed with them. Great hot throw.

Very Strong!

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 means...it 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

scent is strong, smells amazing. I made my first batch of candles using eco soya CB advanced added 1oz of fragrance for (1lb of wax) at 185 degrees. poured at 125 degrees. it scented the whole first level of our home. cold throw is great. the kids thought I was baking a cake. very pleased with this scent!!!

Love this Vanilla

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!

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

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.

unbelievable

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

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

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!

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!

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!

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!!

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

Not so Very Vanilla

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

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!

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!

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...

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

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

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.

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)

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!

NOT FOR ME

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

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!

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

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! www.etsy.com/shop/blueskycandles

Missing Vanilla Lace

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

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

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.

AWESOME!

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

Awesome!

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;

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 love this scent! Has great cold and hot throw. It's not overly sweet, just classic vanilla. Will order again soon!

Perfect Vanilla

To me it smells just like vanilla extract! Which to me is amazing. Great cold & hot throw! Will be buying again! I used 464 wax at 10%.

CS IS SUPERB!

Your oils & other products are EXACTLY what I was looking for! SUPERIOR OILS & everything ...you beat the competion, CS!! AMAZING:-) LOYAL CUSTOMER FOR LIFE!

Disappointed

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.

BEST EVER!

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

A Must Have

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.

Yumm!

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

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!

Excellent

Love this fragrance. One of my bestsellers.

Wonderful Vanilla !!!!

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 !

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 !

Apprehensive!!

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!

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!

disappointed

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!

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

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.

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

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

WOW!

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

this is going to be my best seller

all i can say is ......WOW!! i have already ordered more.

10 stars is more like it!!!

Awesome, awesome, awesome vanilla! If you LOVE vanilla, you have to have this one.
Absolutely to die for!

Inconsistent Vanilla

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.

awesome

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.

Fantastic!!

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

No Smell

I really love this scent, but the last time I made the candles the scent was extra faint...very disappointing, this scent is one of my best sellers....What happened C.S?

Best Vanilla Ever

I have tried different suppliers but this one is the best of all.
Excellent hot and cold throw.
Used it on 100% soy wax 415 and on ecosoya PB

YUCK!

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!

Yum!

Strongest vanilla fragrance I have come across so far. Very strong and smells great. Made my whole house smell like vanilla. Excellenct scent throw hot or cold!

DISAPPOINTING

MAYBE IT IS ME BUT THIS SCENT WAS REALLY WEAK.BUT TRUST ME THERE ARE OTHER SCENTS FROM CANDLE SCIENCE THAT ARE GREAT BUT NOT THIS ONE

Possibly the best Vanilla fragrance oil ever created!

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!!!

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:)
