Bring back the original version

Not the original wassail.....smells more fruity, the original scent was more like a spiced fruit punch and my customers loved it!! Now I can’t even convince them that this is the same scent.... I have an old candle made with the first bottle I purchased and it smells nothing like this new scent.....this one sucks.


I ordered a sample bottle a long time ago, I smelt it out of the bottle and honestly had no interest in it. Then I recently used it for a reed diffuser and oh my is it a wonderful fall/winter smell. I will now absolutely be ordering more and trying it out for candles.


A definite favorite among friends, customers, and ME! I love this sooooo much. Please never discontinue, I will buy this forever. Everyone who smells it agrees that it smells EXACTLY like Wassail. Love it.


This is a great scent but it not your everyday sell. It’s a seasonal sell for me. I put so many out starting at Thanksgiving thru Christmas. If I sell out and need more I take orders, or I put the remaining on sale and don’t keep them around. Works well for me.

This is a great scent!

This is a great fall/winter scent. Very nuanced, layered, complex. Strong hot and cold throw in both 4630 and 6006. Thanks Candle Science for another great fragrance!

Dollar Store Scent

I've been to a few holiday fairs and markets and have had traditional mulled wine. I love the cozy warmth it provides. This is why I decided to buy this fragrance. However, this fragrance didn't spark any memories or feelings of drinking mulled wine on a cold winter day. It actually reminded me of visiting a dollar store and seeing the bright red candles on the clearance rack. You know - "those" candles. The ones with a dozen clearance stickers that shows the store is trying to give them away. I had a few friends smell the candles and everyone seems to agree that this scent smells cheap. I wouldn't recommend this fragrance oil. This scent does have a holiday smell, but it lacks sophistication. If you want your home to smell like a clearance rack at a craft store than this is your pick.

Smells Fake

I'm not sure why everyone likes this scent so much. From the first smell I didn't like like it. I thought I would give it a try in some wax and I couldn't even let it cure. The smell gave me a headache and it was SO fake smelling. I usually don't write reviews but this one I needed to warn people on. I do love so many other CS fragrances though, just not this one.


When I bought this I was pleasantly surprised. It has by far surpassed all of my other Holiday Scents... Even my trusty prior year candles. I have come back to buy many bottles since October and it will be a permanent addition to our fall/holiday candle line up. My next door retail business has it burning in the back of her shop and I can smell it as soon as I open the front door. Nice Throw in 6006 and just the best....

By far the most popular of holiday scents

Wassail sold out in the first few hours of my sales lol I'm going to have to order a ton more! Everyone loved it so much that anyone who sniffed it always bought it.

Amazing (in my Oprah voice)

Love love love this FO. I used at 10% and Lordy Lordy Michael Jordy, I want to eat this candle. It smells soooooooo good! I've ordered two bottles already and I'm seriously thinking about keeping all the candles for myself! Amazing Cold and Hot throw in 464 soy.


Love the cold throw scent, but hot throw is weak. Anyone have success? I used 464 and I did 6% fragrance oil.

I love this scent. I combine it with 10x orange essential oil. Smells just like orange.
With the apples and cinnamon note. I call this one orange cider. Great cold and hot throw. Its been a great seller for rwo years in a row.


This is MINE and MY CUSTOMERS favorite fall/holiday scent. I started making and selling this in the store and have already went through 3 bottles. Back to buy more. I gave one to my next door retail neighbor and she burns it and EVERYONE just loves it... I use it in 6006 with Zinc wicks.

Smells different than previous batches

I'm doing a Fall Festival in a couple of weeks and bought a sample of the Wassail to make a few small tins to include in a Christmas preview section on my table. I bought this fragrance last year and LOVED it! It smelled just like a traditional mulled apple cider. However, this sample doesn't smell the same. I don't know if the formulation has changed but it has kind of a bubblegum smell. I'm very disappointed because this fragrance was perfect when I tried it last year. Candlescience: Has the formulation changed? Would you consider reviewing it and making changes so it smells more like it used to?

Yes Please!

I wasn't very sure of this scent at first so I made a batch with the a few ounces and put it on the shelf. Two months later I stumbled back onto the sample and fell in love. It is absolutely amazing. Cold and hot throw are so strong I am sorry I didn't go for it upon first try.

Warm and fruity

Great holiday fragrance. Haven't smelled anything like this from other candle companies. Smells like orange and cedar. Both men and women liked this one and it sold very well. I used at 10% with para soy blend ig6006 wax.

Great Scent !

The smell is amazing, although the warm throw is very faint. Cold throw is amazing. I used 6% per lb so I think next time I’ll add a little more to get a stronger scent.

Fantastic Seller

This has been one of the best holiday sellers in years for me, I cant keep these new scents on the shelf

Chose this as a free sample on a huge order that I made. I loved this scent so much that I made another order just for this. It smells just like apple cider! Great hot and cold throw in 464

Love this! I did some holiday sneak peaks at one of my fall markets and sold out of this one right away. I always use the same ratio of fragrance to wax for all my candles and I had no problems with the hot throw on this scent.

A best seller and personal favorite!

Unexpected Surprise

At first i was skeptical because i didnt know what Wassail was exactly. When i smelled it i didnt even care. it was amazing! This will remain part of my fall line for sure!

Great scent, but weak

I absolutely love this scent, but glad I read Gretchen's review. The throw is very weak. I've been toying with the amounts, and its getting better. Hoping it will eventually live up to the smell in the bottle.


I really like this fragrance. It's bright and uplifting.

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS SCENT but the hot throw is weak :( I was so disappointed. OBSESSED With cold throw. Was hoping it was stronger :( Hopefully it can be tweaked to throw better? FINGERS CROSSED!
