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.

love it

This fragrance brings a lot of freshness in the environment, I bought 8 oz it was incredible I will buy a bigger one


Ok so this one is freaking AMAZING. It's so sweet it smells like watermelon baby bottle pops or like hubba bubba gum or something! I have used it in a coconut soy wax blend & the throw is incredible (7% frag load) Idk how anyone couldn't get this to have a hot throw??? Its one of the strongest in my candle collection! 5 stars!! Can CS plz make this a flavor oil?? This would be such a good lip scrub scent!


Safe for Lip Balm?

Love this! Can this scent be used for Lip Blams?

I mainly make melt and pour soaps and love this fragrance.

Cured true

This fragrance cured in CP well. Still strong and still smells like watermelon.
No problems, no A or D no ricing. Have tested a lot of watermelon fragrances.
This one is great

I’m back and melted!

Ordered a 16oz!!! I think I’ll sell out of this super quick for the summer. It’s 110% watermelon

Great CT

The cold throw is amazing. It reminds me a lot of a candy type of watermelon scent which isn’t a bad thing. Very sweet and potent when blending and inside the candle prior to lighting - not sure about hot throw as i haven’t tested it yet.

O’Soy Candles
No hot throw

The scent itself smells great, but there is no hot throw. You have to stand over the candle if you want to smell anything. Using soy 464.

Bennett Tholborn

very weak fragrance. can only smell it if youre with in 5 feet of the candle. other fragrances can be smelled throughout the house. Not with this one. Pass.

Wow watermelon

Wow! This watermelon is the best I’ve ever had! Tons of throw, no waiting, I make candles and melts. I use two different oil companies. This is hands down the best!

Strong cold throw

Smells amazingly like summer! Unfortunately the hot throw wasn't as strong as the cold. I wish I could smell it more in through my house

Cheyenna R

Smells kinda fake on its own, but smells nice with mixed with another scent in candles.

Mouthwatering Watermelon!

This scent is hands down one of my favorite scents! Great cold and hot throw. This will be a popular scent for my shop this summer for sure!

Great Smell

I love it!

Love this scent!!!

I haven't burned it yet but I mixed this with garden mint and it smells so fresh! I cant wait to test.


AMAZING this scent smells like candy so yummy!

Chrysanthemum Creations
Spot on

This smells so good. I mixed it with lemon and made soap, watermelon lemonade! Smells so strong after cure! You want to eat it but don’t.

Five stars

Dancing Orchid Soapworks

I love - love- love this scent. Made it in the straight small jars, no color using the 464 at 10% 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!
