I burn this scent in a 4oz jar and the scent is stronger than I had expected. My Husband loved this so much that I had to make him some Wax Melts for his office at work. LOL... Summer's best!!

Watermelon Jolly Rancher

My Love Letter to Watermelon: I am not a fan of your scent. Fortunately, I don’t sell to myself. LOL. This has been a fan favorite in the following: body sprays, room sprays, liquid Castile soap, liquid African Black soap, and body butters. My teenager is finicky about most scents but this is her number one favorite. She asks for this in every product I make. She uses so much, I literally just add it to water in a spray bottle so she can spray it anywhere at her leisure. Definitely smells like a watermelon jolly rancher. No doubt about that at all.



My mouth watered ever time I smelled it. Great summer scent


Jolly Rancher Heaven

If you're looking for something that smells like real watermelon, this isn't the one for you. However, you should pick it up anyway, because it smells amazing! Every time I smell it, I want watermelon Jolly Ranchers! It is light enough that you don't have to worry about it being overwhelming (I get headaches from strong smells, and so far, no issues with this), but strong enough that it fills the room. As I write this review, I have bath bombs drying on the other end of my apartment, door shut, and I can smell them, but it's not making me sick. Honestly, CS knocked it out of the park with this FO. :)


I love it!

Made cold process soap with it and they smell just like watermelon. Hopefully it will stick!

Owner..Salon/Candle shop

This is not an exact watermelon scent..but hold on!!!! I made a few candle tins from a sample and never sold them. I put my 4 ounce tin on a candle plate warmer in my salon before work....OMG!!!! I walked in and the smell was so incredibly fresh!!!!! I was surprised but not really...Candle Science rocks!!! It will be a hit for my all year collection!!!!!! If your looking for fresh and not to sweet....here you go!! One of my new favorites!!!! Just bought a large bottle! Highly recommend!!!

Serendipity Salon

Used for Cold Process Soap Making

I like the scent very much, smells yummy like watermelon gum.
The only issues I had with it were my pink pigment turning orange through the gelling stage
:-/. As you can image, orange and green watermelon soap looks more like a halloween soap haha.
The other thing I noticed was that the smell isn't as strong in the solid bar as it is in the bottle.
But over all, I'm satisfied with this pick =)


Bubble Gum

This is a nice watermelon, but not very sophisticated. From reading the description, we thought that it would be more of a true to like watermelon (I did read the reviews and realized that others didn't think that, but I was hoping the description would ring true). This smells almost exactly like a bubbleicious bubble gum. Still smells like watermelon, but a very sweet and candy-like version of watermelon. I would still recommend this product, it has a great cold and hot throw in soy wax, but understand that it is a very sweet smell.


Very Sweet

Blends well with 'black currant tea'. Very sweet on its own.

In love!!

It smells like those green Spanish melons or the melon vodka I used to drink in Belgium it's just perfect!


A great seller!

Very easy to work with in soap, blends well with other fragrances, sells great, I love this FO


This performed well in GB 464, but not a true-to-life scent. Closer to watermelon Bubblicious or something.

The Burning Mitten

This smells like watermelon gum but I still love it even though it isn't exactly the true to life watermelon scent.


Love This Fragrance Oil

Although it did not smell like traditional Watermelon and more like the Bubble Yum Watermelon gum version i was very happy with it in my candle. It made my whole house smell and i only used 1/2 ounce. Definitely will purchase again.


Not what I expected

I did not like this scent at all. It has a very fake smell to it and is very strong and gave me a headache. I made some sample candles with it but will not use it to sell. This is the only fragrance so far that I have not liked so not bad odds :)

Severine Utiger

I was very disappointed with this fragrance! The description specifically says that it smells like actual watermelon, not candy or gum version. Everyone who has smelled it says that it smells like candy, most people think it smells like that watermelon gum. It's overly sweet. Very disappointed!


watermelon bubblicious

I agree with the previous comments. This smells much more like watermelon bubble gum than it does a fresh watermelon.


Watermelon Bubblegum

Not gonna lie i was debating purchasing this one figured it would be very light scented, it does smell a lot like watermelon bubblegum but i was disappointed in the hot throw i use Gb464 and cold throw was aromatic just needed to be stronger wanted something to fill the room this one just doesn't cut it...going to try out making wax tarts and see if the throw will come out better then.


Not Watermelon

Unless it just takes some time to cure and the scent changes. Absolutely smells like cantaloupe. Had a few people do a blind sniff on it. That was the consensus no one picked up the slightest watermelon notes.

That being said, it is a great melon scent. People love it!


Good and strong

I got a 1 oz. bottle of this as a sample and after smelling it from the bottle, I wasn't sure I'd want to use it in a candle, but I made a reed diffuser with it instead (diluted to 25% with CS's base), and it smells strong and *amazing*. Despite the description, it *is* a bit sweet--it reminds me of watermelon bubble gum. But I don't think that's a bad thing. I think it would be good in a candle or bath and body products, as well--the scent is a bit better when it's not smelled directly from the bottle (as are most, which we all know but still smell from the bottle sometimes). But it's really great in a reed diffuser, and the oil mixes very well since it's so thin and light-colored (I'd have a hard time imagining this would discolor most bath and body products, but of course you'd be better off not taking my word for that).

Juicy And Sweet Watermelon Candy

This watermelon is sweet, juicy and just delicious to smell. However, it is a watermelon candy or gum scent. Not like that is a bad thing, just something to be noted. I use this in soy wax candles, and in glycerin soap for the kiddies. It is more popular in bath and body items for me. I personally love it in glycerin soap since it is fresh and does not discolor.

Great FO!

Holy heck this fragrance was a burst of luscious watermelon! I bought it as a sample size and used it in soy wax and the outcome is amazing! I'll definitely reorder!

Watermelon FO

I have been looking for the perfect watermelon. Many of the melon scents have that fuel smell or are just not very strong. The watermelon FO from candlescience is AWESOME!! The best I've found...and much better than anything I've smelled in the stores. I'm burning a small jar candle in our bedroom and it is PERFECT!! You won't be disapointed with this one!!

Nichole Babinec

I love it!

I used golden brand 464 and 1 oz of fragrance per pound, and my candles turn out very well! The fragrance smelled more like honeydew or another green melon in the bottle, but once it was mixed with the wax, it smelled awesome! Just like a sweet jolly rancher. I will definitely but more :)



I'm not a fan of watermelon scent so I was hesitant at first but the reviews were all positive so I even jumped into it and bought a 4oz bottle and REALLY glad I did.... WOW... IT SMELLS LIKE THE REAL THING... Not over powering, not really any chemical smell... All I smell is watermelon... I'm really liking it... Can't wait to make some candles with this one for the summer scents..




I LOVE this scent, I have gotten rave reviews and I simply can not get enough of this scent, the throw is amazing and I don't even know how to begin to explain how much I love this scent. This is the first time I have purchased fragrance oils from candle science and I am never going back. All of the fragrances that I purchased had very good hot and cold throws in soy wax and even filled the spa where I sell my candles (they have lots of great smells going on in there!) I was only unsatisfied with one scent, I can't wait to buy more...especially of this watermelon! I would definitely recommend!


Everyone will love this scent

This brings me back to the days when I could chew large wads of watermelon bubble gum. The extra sweetness brings out the fruitiness of the watermelon scent. It's not too strong, too sweet, or too fruity. It's just right. And the scent can fill a room.



This is a sweet and delicious scent. Whenever I make a candle with this one of my roommates always wants a candle. Great!


Delicious smell!

Right out the bottle, this smelled like watermelon bubblegum so I was nervous. Once it was in the wax (gb464), it smells like a real, juicy watermelon! Very strong throw too! Will definitely order this again for next summer.


Watermelon Scent

I ordered this scent to make votives as a gift for a person who likes a watermelon scent and I have to say, this scent was heavenly!! It was fragrant without being over powering and charmed both myself and husband. Very nice scent!! Will buy again!!


LOVE this oil!

I named this one Watermelon Bubble Gum & people want to eat it! People also compare it to a watermelon Jolly Rancher. Mmmm!



Yummy! I hate watermelon scents but this is wonderful. Wow.


Very nice!

When I smelled it while in the bottle, it did not smell good. However, when I put it in my scent warmer under a tealight candle, this watermelon scent was amazing! I actually added it to a fragrance oil mix that was already in the warmer, but the watermelon fragrance was absolutely fabulous! Wow! This is a keeper! I would definitely order this scent again.


Very Nice

This is a very nice scent for summer time. Definitely NOT watermelon. More like honeydew melon. Still very nice. Good scent throw in soy.

I love this fragrance! Great alone, but I mixed it with strawberry shortcake because I only had a little of each oil left and it came out great! I only made 4 candles and sold all and have requests for 12 more!!

This was my first time making soy candles from Candlescience and I am very impressed! This fragrance smelled just like a watermelon jolly rancher. My husband and all of our friends/family loved it. Everyone asked where they could get it. Thank you Candlescience! ...I used 1.5ozs in 1lbs of gb464.


More pleasant than authenic

This scent has nice throw and is nice enough. it smells like a melon, but not exactly a watermelon. More loke a mix of honeydew & cantaloupe.



I like this fragrance overall, it is super sweet and juicy. I agree that it smells like watermelon bubble gum, however still a good overall scent if you are looking for that.


Not What I Expected

This does smell like watermelon, but not the real fruit more like watermelon flavored bubble yum. I wanted something more juicy and real smelling.


The best watermelon ever

At first it smelled like honeydew. But once it started curing, each day got better. This is my favorite scent of all times. Scent throw is excellent in soy. I already ordered more oil. I want a big one for me. My customers love it.


Awesome scent

Great job with this duplication. It smells identical to watermellon. Our customers love it.


My momma loved this!

My momma is a watermelon obsessive and she loves the candle I made for her with this fragrance!
