  1. If you find a Rain FO that actually smells like rain, I'd like to know. In my opinion, fragrance oils just can't duplicate Nature's scents usually, like Rain and Fresh Cut Grass. Realistic citrus scents should be easy to find. I think Honeysuckle from Nature's Garden and Fragrance Buddy smell like real honeysuckle.
  2. Some of my FO's are 8-10 years old and are still good. I've had very few that have turned bad. Like kandlekrazy said, go by the smell. And a few do turn dark after several years. I would be in deep trouble if fragrance oils only stayed good for a year!
  3. Some of you are so good at coming up with names for fragrances. I bought Vampire Blood from Aztec when it was on sale at an introductory price. I don't make Halloween candles, and don't like the name Vampire Blood anyway. It's a BBW type. Here is the scent description: Fruity strawberry top notes followed by citrus and jasmine with sweet raspberry and plum bottom notes. I was going to call it Very Berry, but then saw it also has citrus, so that won't work. Thanks for any suggestions!
  4. I couple of years ago, I ordered a few FO's and a case of 24 jars and shipping was $15. I thought that was very reasonable with the case of jars. I won't order from them again because their shipping charges have increased so much, just for FO's. I have found new suppliers since then besides my tried and true ones. I have way too many supplies so I can live without one.
  5. I always thought that Snickerdoodle cookies smelled like cinnamon too, but CS smells like maple too, like you're describing JS's. In fact, CS Snickerdoodle reminds me of Pumpkin Pecan Waffle, guess that's why I like it. I ordered Snickerdoodle from VA Candle Supply and it smells like cinnamon. I'm sure cinnamon and sugar cookie would make a nice Snickerdoodle.
  6. Some of your favorites are also mine Belinda. Some others: #1 Leaves - Aztec Pumpkin Cheesecake Aztec Cinnamon Stick - CS Others have good Cinnamon Stick too, but CS is my favorite Pumpkin Caramel Crunch -CS Snickerdoodle - CS Grandma's Kitchen -Mill Creek Harvest Spice - Mill Creek Hillbilly Homebrew - Mill Creek Chestnuts & Brown Sugar - JS Celtic Moonspice - RE Spiced Pumpkin Latte - RE Apple Cider Donut- Candlewic Pumpkin Chai - Candlewic Chai - Flaming Candle (Customers love this one, I call it Cinnamon Chai) Home Sweet Home - NG Apple Cinnamon Streusel - NG Hot Orange Danish - NG
  7. @franu61, I would have never dreamed of combining lavender and pumpkin. Very interesting. Orange Gingerbread sounds good. I have blended a little. Once I had some gingerbread I wasn't crazy about and blended it with pumpkin. I have some Pecans & Pralines from Peak. Never cared for it, not sweet enough. Last Christmas I blended it with Sugar Cookie and vanilla I think, named it Nutcracker and it sold like crazy. Silly me didn't save the recipe but I'm sure it was just some vanilla and/or sugar cookie..
  8. Candles: wax used: Soy 444 fragrance load (%): 8% average cure time: 1 week Wax additives: none container size: 9 oz glass straight sided jar wicking notes: cd 10 Cold throw: good Hot Throw: excellent Black Chamomile is now on my list of favorite fragrances. I think it is a unique scent. "Soft notes of coconut water and chamomile blend with tea leaves, wild lily and tonka bean." I really had no business adding yet another supplier in December last year, but I'm glad I did.
  9. Sorry you missed their sale. Check out the next one in July. Free shipping with $100 order and they give free shipping before they take off the discount. Can't beat that! My favorites from FB include Lemon Pound Cake, Cinnamon Broom, Salted Caramel, Sea Witch, Pumpkin Sugared Donut, Pumpkin Cupcake, Pumpkin Pecan Waffle, Sugar Cookie Royale, Apple Mango Tango, Vanilla Bean Noel.
  10. Two of my favorite FO's now are Muddy Soap's Idgie Threadgoode and Oceanside Vetiver. Both smell wonderful and are nice and strong in soy wax. I also like Fairest of Them All but thought it had a little lighter hot throw. Do any of you use Muddy Soap's FO's in candles? Which scents do you love? By the way, a fire destroyed their warehouse in April and they are slowly building back up their inventory. One reason I would like to order more oils from them is to support their business.

    Aztec FO

    My granddaughters love Black Raspberry Vanilla and said it was so strong she could smell it all through the house. I use soy wax and about 8% FO. I have never had issues with Volcano either. Haven't tried Bahama Fizz. I don't pour wax with Aztec FO's any differently than other companies' FO's.
  12. Love Nature's Garden! Water Lily & Jasmine Tahitian Vanilla Aloe & White Lilac Apple Cinnamon Streusel Clove Hot Orange Danish Carrot Cake Coco Mango! Seaside Fresh Linen Harvest Moon Mountain Hazelnut Coffee Pearberry And more!
  13. @Cathydiamond, that has to be frustrating. I ordered from Just Scent yesterday, and had no problems. Hopefully, you will get an answer.
  14. @kfintoni I'm with you, don't like that name. I am thinking of something with forest in the name. Guess I'm on the right track because I looked up oud and it's found in agar trees in dense forests. Maybe Black Forest but people might associate that with black forest cake. One supplier has a FO called Merlin's Forest and I want to buy it just because of the name. Maybe Woodland Path? Into the Woods? Enchanted Forest? Ooh I like that one.
  15. I use Lilac from Nature's Garden and I believe it really smells like lilacs.
