Watermelon Fragrance Oil
Choose a Variant

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 oil, 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.

This is the one!

If you are the fence about watermelon do yourself a favor and pick this one up. When I tell you my entire house smelled like summer when we made this batch I mean it. This is my favorite but I am a person who loves all things watermelon.

Great Scent!! I blend it with the Strawberry Guava and my customers love it. The scent is also wonderful on its own. I use it to make Bath & Body Oils as well as Sugar Scrubs

Amazing HT with this fragrance

Wow! I’m blown away by this fragrance oil in IGI 6006. I made a test candle with 8% load and brought it to work. My coworkers have already pre-ordered this scent. It reminds me of a jolly rancher or starburst candy. This is a perfect fragrance oil or spring/summer. Keep up the great work. I do have a suggestion. Please consider using bottle stoppers in your fragrance oils. I ordered several bottles and one of them leaked and some of the labels are coming off the fragrance bottles.

Oh Mama!

This smells so good you’ll want to eat it, seriously! To me it smells like a Watermelon Jolly Rancher! I’ve only made it in wax melts at 15% FO so I’m sure that’s why the HT is amazing but I’ll be doing a tester candle just to make sure it’s strong. I’m hoping to add this to my summer collection.
