Toasty top notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove give way to middle accords of silky buttercream and pumpkin. A base of smoked embers and vanilla gives this scent a warm twist on a classic fall fragrance.

  • Not cloying or overbearing - just yummy, warm fall spice scent of pumpkin and cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, etc. 

Fraser Fir – “Christmas Tree”

This true-to-life Fraser Fir fragrance begins with top notes of cypress and zesty lemon peel that fold into woodsy mid notes of evergreen and cedar. The rich base of fir, amber, and moss evokes fond memories of decorating a freshly-cut Christmas tree. Fraser Fir is perfect for setting a festive holiday mood or creating a cozy ambience for a quiet winter evening by the fire.

  • This smells amazing!!
  • This is truly a chocolate scent. It's sweet and delightful. 

Fresh Coffee

Bring the warmth of fresh brewed coffee to your handmade creations with this comforting, familiar fragrance oil.

Fresh Brewed Coffee candles and wax melts transform any space into your favorite neighborhood cafe.

Year-round candle scents list

Gardenia Tuberose

Breathe in the fragrant accords of tropical white florals in full bloom with Gardenia Tuberose fragrance oil. This dreamy scent begins with top notes of gardenia and lemon peel as it gives way to a blossoming heart of tuberose, jasmine, and green florals. A soft powdery finish gives depth to this earthy floral.

Lavender Driftwood

Lavender Driftwood is a fresh, woodsy fragrance with an intriguing nautical edge. This fragrance oil offers a unique take on a lavender scent, marrying this timeless floral with more masculine notes of cypress, cedar, and amber. The fresh, woody notes make it a perfect choice for lines geared towards men, while the clean and distinctive lavender aromas lend themselves well to spa or luxury home fragrance lines.

  • I love this scent. It’s light and relaxing.
  • Clean fresh scent.

Moonflower Nectar

Sweet but sultry, Moonflower Nectar fragrance oil is a unique blend of florals and fruits inspired by the night-blooming moonflower, an oft iridescent blossom that only releases its sweet fragrance at night. Top notes of juicy pear and agave merge with soft floral and marine notes cocooned in a powdery blend of dark musk and amber. 

Scent reviews:

  • This is definitely a scent that makes me feel like I am floating on a cloud at nighttime over a bed of moonflowers.
  • It's clean, fresh, sweet (not too sweet), floral and uplifting.
  • This scent is a bit floral, but also has a bit of sweetness. 

Rose Petals

Embrace romance with our enchanting Rose Petals fragrance oil. This modern floral experience blooms with top notes of ozone and green leaves, before revealing a heart of rose, carnation, lily of the valley, and ylang ylang. Powder and a hint of peppercorn in the base bolster the simple beauty of this classic scent. 

Scent reviews:

  • The scent is beautiful - I can only describe it as a true rose scent, not overly floral.
  • Smells just like my rose garden outside--dewy, floral, just a tiny bit sweet.

Peppermint Eucalyptus

Our Peppermint and Eucalyptus fragrance oil blends sweet peppermint with tingly, earthy eucalyptus for a refreshing spa-like scent. Hints of cedarwood add depth that make this a perfect year-round fragrance. Peppermint and Eucalyptus candles bring an upscale scent into any space. The fragrance is wonderful for entryways, hallways, and living rooms since it beckons people in and invites them to stay.

Scent reviews:

  • It is very clean and crisp. Has a bit of a cologne finish to it.
  • I really like this scent. Very clean and refreshing. 

Green Tea and Lemongrass

Breathe in the botanical beauty of Green Tea and Lemongrass, and escape from the commotion of everyday life. A melange of herbal green tea and bright lemongrass is enhanced by notes of citrus, ozone, jasmine, and light musk in this elegant scent. 

This chic, well-balanced fragrance is a fresh choice for a variety of applications and brands, adding an intriguing, natural aroma to any space. 

Scent reviews:

  • I absolutely love this fragrance. It is so smooth and invigorating.
  • I love the fresh crispness of this scent, it is nice and light and perfect.

Whiskey and Leather

Though there are many different styles and origins, the essential aroma of whiskey is unmistakable. Also known as the "water of life," the whiskey fragrance oil is an intoxicating blend of potent alcohol notes and smoked oak. 

Distinct, rich and sensual, the Leather fragrance oil embodies the warm and luxurious aroma of fine leather. Soft and earthy saffron top notes are layered on gentle incense, all resting on a rich base of leather and warm amber. Together, these fragrances form an intoxicating blend that's refined, sultry, and masculine.

Scent reviews:

  • It absolutely smells like leather! I was shocked and thrilled at how great it smells!
  • Makes me feel like I am touring a distillery.
