White Currant is a versatile fragrance with wide appeal, thanks to the alluring balance of tart and sweet. Red currant and zesty lemon peel combine with airy ozone before giving way to a botanical heart of juniper and geranium. Black currant and just a hint of peppermint in the base reinforce the tart freshness of this year-round scent.
White Currant is the perfect scent for creating modern, trendsetting home fragrance options like elegant reed diffusers, candles, and wax melts. Don’t sleep on this fragrance for bath and body either—the blend of tart and sweet is beautiful in artisanal soap, body butters, and lotions.
This fragrance oil is infused with natural essential oils, including lemongrass, fir needle, orange, geranium, and peppermint.

We did not experience any acceleration but there was some ricing noted after the mixture came to a light trace. With continued stick blending the ricing stopped but the batter still had a grainy texture. We were able to bring the batter to a thick trace and completely smooth it out. The batter poured smoothly and easily into the mold. After 24 hours the soap had a slight pink discoloration around the edges where it had not reached a full gel. The scent was very strong. After 30 days the soap had discolored to a tan shade and the scent was still very strong. Even though we did experience some ricing initially, this would be an ideal fragrance for a design that requires a thick trace since there was no acceleration.
I only ordered a one ounce bottle of this to try it. I like it. It has a sort of clean-ness about it. I really it, and will order again. Very nice.
I really love this fragrance. It behaved very well in CP soap. It has been over 4 weeks and scent is still strong.
This scent smelled amazing in the bottle and I was really excited to use it in CP soap. I made a large batch of soap which I planned to split in half between two loaf molds. One mold I used a Chocolate Fudge scent and in the other I used this White Currant. The loaf I used this FO in discolored drastically, my dark brown mica turned a light green, and my really red Mica turned a pastel orange. Three weeks later the soap is still soft and pliable. The other half of the batch turned our fine and has had no issues. I would refrain from using this scent for CP soap.
I just started making soy candles, and I initially planned to use essential oils. However, I read many times that EO does not work well in candles, so I ordered some sample scents from Candle Science. I am so glad that I did! I used White Currant with 464 wax in the microwave method, and it is absolutely fantastic. I made a 3 wick candle in a glass jar with a lid, and it quickly fills our large living area quickly with sweet but tart hot throw. I cannot speak for the cold throw, as I keep the lid on the jar. I will buy this in a larger size.
I received this in a 1oz sample, and I gotta say I was unfamiliar with any of the “current” family scents, so I had NO idea what to expect of it. As soon as I smelled it, I was PLEASANTLY surprised. It smells very particular but also something you just can’t put your finger on. I made clamshells with this scent alone, and then mixed with a couple others and every scent mix came out amazing and different and STRONG. Like many others, my main goal is HT. This works WONDERS- out of the 50+ scents I’ve experimented with from CS and lonestar, this scent was the strongest and and lingered the longest compared to the others. I love how good it smells by itself and how amazingly well it mixes with other scents. Definitely repurchasing.
Amazing this smell sooooo good!!
I am adding this to my masuline line!!
i'm a big, big currant fan and have only smelled a few over the past 20 years that are true currants, red, black, or white, and these are by far the best i've ever smelled!! thank you candle science!!!
