Pumpkin Walnut Biscotti FragrancePumpkin Walnut Biscotti Fragrance Oil Spotlight

With all the different ways to make delicious pumpkin desserts, you’ve got to have a scent to represent each amazing flavor combination. Pumpkin Walnut Biscotti would go great with a cup of coffee, filling you up and warming you up this fall. In English, the Italian word “biscotti” means “twice-cooked.” The twice-cooked dryness of these cookies makes them last longer, and the products you make using this fragrance are certain to last even longer than the actual cookies because you can’t eat them! (Never eat fragrance oil- no matter how delicious it smells.)

What Does Pumpkin Walnut Biscotti Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

The aroma of freshly baked Italian biscotti with delicious notes of pumpkin and fresh walnuts.

Top Notes:  almond, cherry
Mid Notes:  pumpkin
Base Notes: biscotti cookie, walnuts, vanilla

How Do Our Customers Use Pumpkin Walnut Biscotti Fragrance Oil?

Candles! This freshly baked fragrance performs perfectly in joy wax and wow wax and is nice and strong in soy wax. The maximum recommended usage percentage for this delicious dessert scent in vegetable waxes and paraffin wax is 10%. It is not gel wax compatible. Our coloring suggestion for candles is to use 6 drops orange plus 1 drop brown liquid candle dye per 4 pounds of wax or shred an ample amount of orange and brown color block into your melted wax. Never use crayons to color your candles; it will clog the wick!

Room scents! This autumn aroma comes across nice and strong in aroma beads and its maximum recommended usage percentage in incense and potpourri is 50%. (Try a reed stick diffuser kit for easy room scenting!)

Soaps! The maximum recommended usage percentage for this bakery scent in bath oils, bath gels, and soap is 5%. Our cold process soap testing found that this sweet, nutty scent had a perfect pour in CP soapmaking: no acceleration, no ricing, and no separation. Cured bars retained a strong scent and discolored to a chocolate color. This discoloration is likely due to the 7% vanillin content of the fragrance. The presence of vanilla tends to discolor bath and body products to varying shades of brown. The higher the vanillin content, the darker the discoloration. You can combat discoloration due to vanilla with our Vanilla White Color Stabilizer– but remember that you are responsible for the results in your finished products. Our coloring suggestions for bath and body products are to use orange and brown soap colorant in the amount that satisfies you. Never color bath and body products with candle dye or they will end up coloring you! You can, however, try natural soap colorants– just be sure to pay close attention to the descriptions on their corresponding pages as different natural colors will be affected differently by different soap making processes.

Body products (outside of the bath)! This pumpkin scent performed perfectly in perfumes and its maximum recommended usage percentage in lotions and body spray is 5%.

Cleaning products! The maximum recommended usage percentage for this mouth-watering aroma in cleaning products is 5%.

Poison Pie Fragrance OilPoison Pie Fragrance Spotlight

Have you ever wanted to eat something delicious even though you know it’s bad for you? Well, maybe just one more piece of pie… This mouth-watering aroma will definitely have you coming back for more. If you’re a fan of apple and blueberry pies, this deadly scent already has you in its sights. The name of this fragrance is not to be confused with the common nickname of the moderately poisonous Hebeloma crustuliniforme mushroom. A friendly reminder to not eat those mushrooms and not consume fragrance oil. You can, however, use this delicious scent to make candles, room scents, and bath & body products. (Don’t eat those, either!)

What Does Poison Pie Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

This fragrance is a killer fragrance to say the least!  The aroma of freshly picked blueberries, fresh cut granny smith apples, smothered in butter, cream, and cinnamon, with a background of fresh baked crust.  This fragrance is to die for!  An NG Original Fragrance!

How Do Our Customers Use Poison Pie Fragrance Oil?

Candles! This appetizing aroma performs perfectly in joy wax and wow wax and is nice and strong in soy wax. It is not gel wax compatible. The maximum recommended usage percentage for this tempting scent in vegetable waxes and paraffin wax is 10%. Our coloring suggestions for candles are to use 6 drops blue plus 2 drops black liquid candle dye per 4 pounds of wax. Never use crayons to color candles– this will clog the wick!

Room scents! This sumptuous scent comes across nice and strong in aroma beads and its maximum recommended usage percentage in incense and potpourri is 50%. (Try a reed stick diffuser kit for an easy way for room scenting!)

Soaps! The maximum recommended usage percentage for this freshly baked fragrance in bath oils, bath gels, and soaps is 1%. Our cold process soap testing found that this fragrance caused no ricing, and no separation, but it did cause some slight acceleration. To slow the speed at which your CP soap batter reaches trace, we recommend soaping this scent at room temperature. Cured bars showed no discoloration and had light scent retention. Our coloring suggestions for bath and body products are to use blue and black soap colorants in the amount that satisfies you. This is where I’d normally mention natural soap colorant, but unfortunately, natural blue colors are difficult to find. However, if you’d like to use a natural soap color for your black coloring- try activated charcoal powder. It also has the added benefits of being a detoxifying agent for your skin and a natural odor absorber. Never color your bath and body products with candle colorants or they will end up coloring you!

Body products (outside of the bath)! This appealing aura performed perfectly in perfumes and its maximum recommended usage percentage in lotions and body sprays is 0.5%.

Cleaning products! The maximum recommended usage percentage for this alluring aroma in cleaning products is 1%.

Bermuda Triangle FragranceBermuda Triangle Fragrance Oil Spotlight

The Bermuda Triangle is the nickname given to the area of the Atlantic Ocean between Miami, Puerto Rico, and Bermuda. It is most famous for legends of ships and planes suddenly vanishing in the area under mysterious circumstances. Sailors have reported strange phenomena in the area, particularly affecting navigation equipment, since the days of Christopher Columbus.  But many authors have embellished alleged occurrences because it makes for a good story. Sorry to burst anyone’s bubble- who doesn’t love a good enigma? (Reported events are extremely interesting to read about if you have the time.) It has since been revealed that the number of incidents that occurred in the Bermuda Triangle are no greater than anywhere else in the Atlantic Ocean, and no mysterious disappearances have been reported since the late 1960s. In light of this news, remember the Bermuda Triangle is located near some ideal vacation destinations- a great place to plan your escape. Disappear from your everyday with this fragrance.

What Does Bermuda Triangle Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

This fragrance is one you will get lost in! An excellent blend of cantaloupe, honeydew, and watermelon; with citrus top notes of mandarin, tangerine, grapefruit and lime; with just a hint of juicy McIntosh apples. An NG Original Scent & A Best Seller!

Top Notes:  mandarin, tangerine, grapefruit, lime
Mid Notes: cantaloupe, honeydew, watermelon, apple

Don’t color your bath and body products with candle dye or it will end up coloring you!

This fun fragrance is also featured in our Hatching Dinosaur Egg Bath Bomb Recipe. Most likely intended to make bath time fun for kids- but, as an adult, I’d have to say I think it looks pretty cool. Relax in the tub and play with DINOSAURS!! You could also fill these bath bombs with tiny plastic boats or planes. If they can mysteriously disappear in the Bermuda Triangle- why not mysteriously appear out of a Bermuda-Triangle-scented dinosaur egg bath bomb?

Banana Cream Pie FragranceBanana Cream Pie Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Bananas, vanilla, and cream make an excellent pie filling- this description alone is making my mouth water- but imagine being able to smell that scent any time you’d like without the work of baking a pie! That’s where Banana Cream Pie fragrance oil comes in.  You do need to mix your ingredients to use this fragrance oil in applications, but the scent lasts much longer. It’s much easier to light a candle than it is to bake a pie- no? Cream pies also have a reputation of being thrown in people’s faces for comedic effect (or charity or both, really) but you don’t have to worry about that with fragrance oil! The only way your face will smell like Banana Cream Pie is if you use this fragrance oil to make a sumptuous soap. Just remember that you can’t eat it, no matter how delicious it smells. (Though we do have some delicious lip flavorings if that’s what you’d like.)

What Does Banana Cream Pie Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

The aroma of freshly made banana cream pie.  The fragrance begins with top notes of ripe banana, quince, and apple; middle notes of juicy pearberry, Anjou pear, clove buds, and plantain leaves; base notes of vanilla extract, pie crust, and butter rum.

Apple AromasApple Aromas

Right on time for autumn soap-making! Apples smell utterly amazing on their own, but our fun fragrances add extra notes to make each scent special. You’re bound to find at least one that you absolutely adore! Click the titles for fragrance oil spotlight blogs (where you can read more) or click the pictures for links to the fragrance oil page (where you can buy the fragrance [and read more, too]).

 

Apple Butter Pie FragranceApple Butter Pie

Have you ever made apple butter? The process alone is enough to make your house smell sweet and cinnamon-y for a while, but the scent of pie is gone once the last piece is eaten. You can’t eat fragrance oil; keep the smell around for longer! You get the delicious smell of apples with an added undertone of freshly baked crust. Mmmm.

 

Apple Cinnamon - Body Safe FragranceApple Cinnamon – Body Safe

This one’s pretty straightforward. Smells like apples and cinnamon. And it’s safe to use in bath and body products, including soaps, bath oils, bath gels, lotions, and perfumes. This simple spicy, sweet scent is great if you’re looking for the smell of apples and cinnamon without overwhelming bakery base notes. It smells like delicious apple cider to me; an ideal autumn aroma! Free snack recipe on the fragrance oil page.

 

Apple Cinnamon Streusel FragranceApple Cinnamon Streusel

Fresh apple bakery scents are everywhere! And there’s no pair quite like apple and cinnamon. That combination of spicy and sweet just cannot be beat! The tones that set Apple Cinnamon Streusel apart from the rest are sweet pears and banana leaves.

 

Apple Crisp FragranceApple Crisp

If you want to smell like you’ve just started an apple-themed bakery, we have got you covered. The fragrance oil page (click the pic) features a recipe for this scrumptious dessert. I am getting very hungry writing this blog post. This scent has apples and cinnamon, with an awesome addition of buttercream and a base note of baked oatmeal cookie.

 

Apple Dumpling FragranceApple Dumpling

In addition to being an adorable pet name for your significant other, dumplings are delicious treats. This freshly-baked fruit fragrance features apples, cinnamon, pears, nutmeg, clove, cardamom, vanilla, and hazelnut. A beautiful bakery bouquet.

 

Apple Pecan Sage FragranceApple Pecan Sage

Top notes of apple, pear, and banana, followed by middle notes of cinnamon, sage, clove, and cardamom, sitting on a base of pecan and vanilla. The fragrance notes that make this scent unique are right there in the name: pecan and sage. Nothing wrong with getting a little nutty. Sage itself is something else.

 

Apples and Oak FragranceApples and Oak

Let’s stop out of the kitchen and under an oak tree. This fragrance sets itself apart from the others on the list by featuring woodsy fresh oak leaves and oak moss. A nice, clean smell, almost like autumn air. I know I’m not supposed to pick favorites, kids, but this one is it. It’s even gel wax compatible. You can get fancy and put some acorn and oak leaves embeds in your Apples and Oak gel wax candle.

 

Apple Butter Caramel FragranceApple Butter Caramel

But I can’t forget this lil sweetie. A sweet scent with notes of McIntosh apple, steamed milk, pure sugar, caramel candy, toffee pudding, apple butter, fresh nutmeg, vanilla bean, and soft musk. If you prefer sugary caramel to spicy cinnamon, then this is the apple aroma for you. Again, fragrance oil are not for consumption. No matter how delicious they smell.

 

If you’d like to smell these for yourself, stop on by our store. I hope you find an apple aroma to enjoy all through autumn!
