Almond Rum Cake FragranceAlmond Rum Cake Fragrance Oil Spotlight

We sure have a lot of bakery scents. I’ve already talked extensively about the almonds themselves, and the small eternity it takes to make Amish friendship bread and fruitcake. Thankfully, almond rum cake only takes less than an hour to make. Maybe longer if you’re a less experienced baker. But still- far less than 10 days or a whole month. Relatively speaking, this is fast food. Check out our free Almond Rum Cake recipe on the fragrance oil page. Make yourself a tasty Almond Rum Cake and then use our fragrance oil to preserve those sweet memories in your soap, candles, bath and body products, and room scents. Just never, ever eat fragrance oil.

What Does Almond Rum Cake Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

This fragrance is a scrumptious bakery arrangement beginning with top notes of almond extract, chopped almonds, and dark rum; followed by middle notes of sugar cane, coconut milk, vanilla extract, and heavy cream; well-rounded with base notes of butter and cake batter. I don’t know about you, but just reading that makes me hungry. This is also a Nature’s Garden original scent. You’re welcome.

How Do Our Customers Use Almond Rum Cake Fragrance Oil?

They make some super sweet scented candles. Almond Rum Cake fragrance oil performs perfectly in joy wax and wow wax, and is nice and strong in soy wax. Unfortunately, it is not gel wax compatible. The maximum recommended usage percentage for vegetable waxes and paraffin wax is 10%. Our coloring recommendations for candles are two drops of brown liquid candle dye or a small amount of shredded brown color block per four pounds of wax. Don’t use crayons to color candles- you’ll clog the wick, you silly goose!

They also make some super sweet scented soaps. The maximum recommended usage percentage for Almond Rum Cake fragrance oil in soaps, bath oils, bath gels, and cleaning products is 5%. Our cold process soap testing results showed that in CP soap, Almond Rum Cake fragrance oil causes no acceleration, no ricing, and no separation, and has good scent retention. It does, however, discolor to a light brown. Our soap coloring recommendations are: none! The vaniilin content of this fragrance is 3.25% so it will slightly discolor your soap and other bath and body products. I say it makes it look more like almonds- right? If you do not want this discoloration, feel free to try our Vanilla White Color Stabilizer– but keep in mind that it’s your responsibility to test it in your product- color stabilizer is not a guarantee. We’ve got some cute little bundt cake molds if you want to make your soap look more cake-shaped.

What else? Perfumes and lotions? You bet! Almond Rum Cake fragrance oil performs perfectly in perfumes. The maximum recommended usage percentage of this fragrance for lotions and perfumes is 1.1%.

What’s left? Room scents, my friend. Sweet, sweet Rum Cake room scents. Almond Rum Cake fragrance oil comes across nice and strong in aroma beads. The maximum usage percentage in incense and potpourri is 50%.
