was Ocean. I don't really like that type of scent, but I know some customers do, so I got a sample. I used 1 oz FO per pound of wax and after a 2-day cure a baby food jar ran me out of my 12x30-foot living room. I actually had to blow it out because it was too strong--think that's the first time that's happened to me. And the fragrance was food, even though it's not "my type."

DH and I also loved Tall Grass and Pink Sugar. The Black Raspberry Vanilla wasn't strong enough in my wax blend, but it sure smelled yummy while pouring--so it's worth getting a sample to see if it works in your wax.

HTH,

Jane

You might want to check the archives at the old CT and search through the veggie section with the oils that you're looking for. I may be wrong, but it seems there was a sticky thread directly regarding Peak's oils and soy wax.

Found this, hope it helps... edit to add link:

I tested a sample of Peak's Mediterranian Fig in my EZSoy. It has a good strong cold and hot throw. My sister tested the candle I made. She and her sons LOVED it. My girlfriend tested the tarts I made and said they were so strong she was going to have to cut them in half. Both my sister and my friend have asked me to add this fragrance to my regular line, so when I'm ready to place another order, this one is definitely going to be included!

You're waiting? Puh-lease! I gave you a link that has 4 pages of soy chandlers and their opinions on Peak's FO in soy... Do just a tad of reading and I'm sure you'll get the answers you're looking for.
