Too many watermelon fragrances are super-sweet and smell like kid's bubble gum. Ours has the traditional watermelon notes, but the sweetness is less pronounced in wax, giving it a pleasing ripeness that smells more authentic. Note Profile:

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.

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 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 you go!! One of my new favorites!!!! Just bought a large bottle! Highly recommend!!!

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.
