REVISION NOTICE: It is our policy to notify customers if any part of a fragrance was changed for any reason.

As of January 16, 2020 our Watermelon was revised to increase the flashpoint, so this fragrance can be shipped by air. The original strength and fragrance characteristics have been preserved. To see details of the previous version, click here.

Summer is in full swing when the aroma of freshly sliced watermelon wafts through the air. Bring out your inner child with the ripe sweetness of our Watermelon fragrance, and recall the first bite of juicy, dripping melon after a long summer day spent playing outside. A top note of honeydew melon adds a bright fruity punch to this classic scent, while a strong middle note of watermelon adds to its authenticity. A base note of sugar emphasizes the sweetness to round out this realistic fragrance.

Our Watermelon fragrance makes strong, sweet-smelling candles and soaps that add a burst of summertime to any space. Watermelon is a fun scent that looks great with a pop of color in your finished handmade creations.

We did not experience any acceleration. Just as the batter came to a light trace we saw some signs of ricing. After a few quick pulses of the stick blender the batter smoothed out and stayed at a light trace while pouring into the mold. After 24 hours, there was no sign of discoloration or the soap going through gel phase. The scent was strong and true. After 30 days there was no discoloration. The scent faded slightly but still had a true juicy watermelon quality. Because this fragrance showed some signs of separation, it may be best to mix in colors before adding in the fragrance until you know how it will affect your specific recipe.

Five stars


I love - love- love this scent. Made it in the straight small jars, no color using the 464 at 10% FL...it is so nice. This is my go to for my own use. Smells like summer.


To me it smells exactly like bubbalicious bubblegum. Its super strong! Remember this when using Gel. I added 10% and it was WAY to strong. but 10% in my 6006 wax was perfect. Highly recommend this scent and in soap it was a beautiful nice scent at 5% cant wait to make lotion with it as well!

Smells really good, I love it.

I'll definitely be purchasing again, it smells good and have a good heat throw.


Smells sweet and tasty... my testers and I agree this is not a TRUE watermelon scent, however I love that I can rename it and play with it to better represent in our opinion it's true identity. It's really delightful! Truthfully buy it!


Love - Love - Love this scent. Smells fruity and fresh. Will buy again. Perfect for summer !


Smells like watermelon candy!
