Apple Cinnamon - Body Safe FragranceApple Cinnamon – Body Safe Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Finally done with almond scents, we move onto apple fragrances. Trust me, there are plenty more apple fragrance blogs to come. But why wouldn’t there be? Apples smell absolutely delicious. Not to mention the taste, but no matter how good fragrance oil smells, we never eat it. Apple Cinnamon – Body Safe is a perfect autumn aroma. As fall approaches, it’s heartwarming to smell the sweet, spicy scent of apples and cinnamon, reminiscent of a nice, hot cup of apple cider.

What Does Apple Cinnamon – Body Safe Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

If you’re looking for a wonderful blend of apples and cinnamon without an overkill of bakery base notes, then our apple cinnamon fragrance oil is just for you!  The aroma of a red juicy McIntosh apple, sprinkled with freshly ground cinnamon sticks.  Best of all, this fragrance is body safe!  It is both an NG Original Scent and a best seller!

How Do Our Customers Use Apple Cinnamon – Body Safe Fragrance Oil?

Candles, of course. This apple cinnamon aroma is ideal for creating succulently-scented decorative candles. Apple Cinnamon fragrance oil performs perfectly in joy wax and wow wax, and is nice and strong in soy wax. The maximum recommended usage percentage in vegetable waxes and paraffin wax is 10%. Apple Cinnamon – Body Safe is not gel wax compatible (but it is body safe- and we’ll get to that). Our coloring recommendations for candles are to use two drops of red liquid candle dye and two drops of brown liquid candle dye per four pounds of wax or shred a small amount of cinnamon color block into your melted wax.

Surely they make sweetly, spicy-scented soaps, and other bath and body products. This is where the “body safe” part is important. The maximum recommended usage percentage for this fruity fall fragrance in soaps, bath oils, bath gels, and cleaning products is 5%. We’ve found that Apple Cinnamon – Body Safe performed well in bath and body products. Our cold process soap testing results found that in CP soap, Apple Cinnamon – Body Safe caused slight acceleration, no ricing, no separation, and discolors to a light beige, with good scent retention. Our coloring recommendations for soap are: use red soap dye in the amount that satisfies you (of our four red soap colorants, I would recommend Tomato Red or Red Oxide- but it’s ultimately your decision, so do whatever you’d like!)

We’ve got this awesome 3D Apple Mold (that I’m going to be pushing a lot with all of the upcoming apple aromas) that you can use to make life-sized apple soaps! You could even get crafty and use this mold to make an apple-shaped candle. Simply use wick pins in the mold while pouring your wax (I’m not sure how simple it is, I just thought it was a neat idea, maybe someday I will have time to test it out! I’ll get back to you on that.)

This amazing autumn aroma is also perfect for perfumes and lotions. It performed perfectly in perfume and the maximum recommended usage percentage for lotions and perfumes is 5%.

Angel Love FragranceAngel Love Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Angel was an American television series that aired from 1999-2004 starring David Boreanaz, and was a spin-off of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.  I don’t think that’s what we’re talking about here, but I love me some David Boreanaz (that’s my Angel Love). Actual angels, the kind we find in religious stories and myths, are said to be messengers from God, serving as intermediaries between Heaven and Earth. Angels are also charged with guiding and protecting human beings. They are generally depicted with bird-like wings, wearing white, and exuding some form of light. It is safe to assume that they smell absolutely heavenly.

What Does Angel Love Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

Angel Love Fragrance Oil by Natures Garden is a feminine, gourmand aroma with luscious rich top notes of lemon, raspberry, honeydew melon, black currants; with middle notes of jasmine, gardenia, and nutmeg; bottom notes of white chocolate, musk, sandalwood, and patchouli. Very complex!

Alien Princess FragranceAlien Princess Fragrance Oil Spotlight

I’ve never smelled an extra-terrestrial, so I can’t really speak to the accuracy of the name of this fragrance oil. All of the components of this aroma are found here on Earth, but their combination is other-worldly. And this isn’t just the scent of an alien, it’s the scent of an alien princess no less. So her aroma must be agreeable to all living beings across the galaxy if she wants to retain diplomacy on behalf of her people. or attract a well-to-do alien prince.

Room scenting? You betcha. The maximum recommended usage percentage for Alien Princess fragrance in incense and potpourri is 50%, and the scent comes across nice and strong in aroma beads.

Apple Butter Pie FragranceApple Butter Pie Fragrance Oil Spotlight

This is yet another one of those fragrances that gives you a sweet scent without putting in all the work of making the real-life version it is modeled after. Our Apple Butter Pie Fragrance Oil page features an apple butter pie recipe, which seems simple enough, but you still need to make apple butter before making your apple butter pie. And that alone is enough to fill your house with the sweet smell of spicy apples. But who is to say how long that will last? This fragrance oil allows you to maintain that amazing apple aroma long after the last piece of pie would have been lovingly devoured.

What Does Apple Butter Pie Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

The perfect arrangement of tart pie apples, apple butter, evaporated milk, cinnamon, and buttery, flaky pie crust.  Both an NG Original Scent and a best seller! 

How Do Our Customers Use Apple Butter Pie Fragrance Oil?

Candles: this freshly baked fragrance performed 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 in vegetable waxes and paraffin wax is 10%. Our coloring recommendations for candles are two drops of red liquid candle dye and two drops of brown liquid candle dye per four pounds of wax, or shred a small amount of cinnamon color block into your melted wax. Remember to never use crayons to color your candles. It’ll clog the wick, the candle won’t work, it’s a whole mess. You could even use the stainless steel tart floater candle mold to make small pie-shaped, pie-scented wax melts using our Pillar of Bliss Wax.

Soaps: the maximum recommended usage percentage for this apple aroma in soaps, bath gels, bath oils, and cleaning products is 1%. Apple Butter Pie fragrance performs well in bath and body products. The vanillin content is 0%, so it is unlikely to discolor your bath and body products too much. Our cold process soap testing results found that in CP Soap, this sweet, spicy scent caused slight acceleration, but no ricing and no separation, and discolored the soap to a straw color. Vanilla White Color Stabilizer might not be very helpful when attempting to correct discoloration of products made using this fragrance because the vanillin content is 0%, so it’s more likely that the cause of discoloration in this oil is something other than vanilla. You can always test it to be sure. Our coloring recommendations for soap are: use red soap colorant in the amount that satisfies you. Or you could use a little bit of brown soap colorant to make it pie-colored and use this pie heart mold to make pie-shaped soap. How cute is that?

Lotions and perfumes: this mouth-watering scent performs perfectly in perfumes and the maximum recommended usage percentage in lotions and perfumes is 1%.

Room scents: the maximum recommended usage percentage for this apple butter pie aura in incense and potpourri is 50% and it comes across nice and strong in aroma beads.

Antique Lace Fragrance

Antique Lace FragranceAntique Lace Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Lace itself is already quite delicate, but antique lace, made by intricate handiwork, is even more fragile. There are two main types of handmade lace: bobbin lace and needle lace. In bobbin lace, threads wound around bobbins are twisted and braided and then the pattern is set by pinning the weaving to a pillow. Needle lace, as the name implies, is made using a needle and thread. This is another scent inspired by something that takes an abundance of time and painstaking effort to make, but only seconds to smell! This fragrance captures the exquisite beauty of lace and softly ages it with a down of musk. The aroma alone will make you feel absolutely elegant.

What Does Antique Lace Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

Antique Lace is the romantic scent of jasmine and fresh vanilla beans, with a base note of musk.  It’s even an NG Original Fragrance!

How Do Our Customers Use Antique Lace Fragrance Oil?

They make beautiful candles with a floral, musky aroma. Antique Lace scent performs perfectly in joy wax and wow wax, and is nice and strong in soy wax. The maximum recommended usage percentage in vegetable waxes and paraffin wax is 10%. Unfortunately, this scent is not gel wax compatible. Our coloring recommendations for candles are two drops of our Spectrum purple liquid candle dye per four pounds of wax, or shred a small amount of purple color block into your melted wax. I’m not entirely sure why we recommend purple- it’s pretty? It’s noble? I recommend no color. The lace is white, right? And jasmine flowers are white. And vanilla is.. almost white. I say give it that “antique white” tint with a very, very small amount of yellow or brown liquid candle dye or shredded yellow or brown color block. Remember never to use crayons to color candles- it’ll clog up your wick!

They also make sensuously-scented soaps. The maximum recommended usage percentage for this luscious Antique Lace scent in soaps, bath oils, bath gels, and cleaning products is 5%. Antique Lace fragrance oil has a vanillin content of 6%- so it will likely discolor your bath and body products. Our cold process soap testing results showed that Antique Lace caused acceleration and slight ricing in CP soap, but no separation and the finished soap was beautiful. The cured soap had discolored to a dark chocolate color and maintained good scent retention. To eliminate unwanted discoloration, we recommend trying out our Vanilla White Color Stabilizer. It is your responsibility to test it in your finished products. Our coloring recommendations for bath and body products are: use as much purple soap dye as you want!

They also use this idyllic aroma to create lotions and perfumes. Antique Lace fragrance performed perfectly in perfume and the maximum recommended usage percentage for lotions and perfumes is 5%.

This alluring aura is also ideal for scenting rooms. It is nice and strong in aroma beads and the maximum recommended usage percentage for Antique Lace in incense and potpourri is 50%.

Almond Macaroon Fragrance

Almond Macaroon Fragrance Almond Macaroon Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Guess what! Even more almonds. I think this is it, though, for now. Who knows, I could say that and then almonds rain down on me from the sky. If I’ve angered the almond gods. Anywho, here’s this: Almond Macaroon Fragrance. So, macaroons are typically made with ground almonds, sugar, and egg white, and then any other spices you may like. Isn’t that a heckuva lot like Almond Marzipan? You bet your sweet bippy it is, But guess what? This stuff is shaped into “small, circular cakes”* and baked (*I think you’d just call these cookies- but I don’t know a ton about baking, so I’ll defer to the wisdom of Wikipedia.)

What Does Almond Macaroon Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

This luscious almond cookie (a-ha! It is a cookie!) fragrance by Natures Garden is sure to create a sensory delight. Fresh orange sweetens the toasted almond character, as bakery tones of warm cookie and toasted nut add a yummy sensation. Vanilla bean sweetens the cookie tones, completing the gourmand treat.

How Do Our Customers Use Almond Macaroon Fragrance Oil?

All kinds of crazy ways! Firstly, they make some pretty sweet decorative candles. Almond Macaroon fragrance oil performs perfectly in joy wax and wow wax, and is nice and strong in soy wax. The maximum recommended usage percentage in vegetable waxes and paraffin wax is 10%. Unfortunately, this fragrance is not gel wax compatible. Our coloring recommendations for candles made using this fragrance oil are: no color. I say try to get a vanilla tint using a very small amount of yellow and/or brown liquid candle dye or a very small amount of shredded color blocks.

Secondly, they make some pretty sweetly scented soaps. We happen to have a very cool Macaroon Melt and Pour Soap Recipe ourselves.  The maximum recommended usage percentage for Almond Macaroon fragrance oil in soaps, bath oils, bath gels, and cleaning products is 5%. This fragrance performed well in bath and body products. The vanillin content of Almond Macaroon fragrance oil is 15.5%, which means it may discolor your bath and body products. Our cold process soap testing results found that Almond Macaroon fragrance oil did great in CP soap: no acceleration, no ricing, and no separation; a perfect pour. It did, however, discolor to a dark chocolate color. It also has very strong scent retention. We have no color recommendations for soap, either, but if you’re looking to make your soap a color other than dark chocolate or prevent your bath and body products from discoloring, I recommended trying out our Vanilla White Color Stabilizer (though not a guarantee, it could help bring your soap to a white color, and then you can add whichever soap dye you like!)

Thirdly, they make lotions and perfumes. The recommended maximum usage percentage for Almond Macaroon scent in lotions and perfumes is also 5%. This fragrance performs perfectly in perfumes.

Finally, they make room scents. The maximum recommended usage percentage for Almond Macaroon fragrance oil in potpourri and incense is 50%. This fragrance comes across nice and strong in aroma beads.

Almond Marzipan fragranceAlmond Marzipan Fragrance Oil Spotlight

I seem to be unable to escape almonds. Though that may be because we’re in the “A’s.” They’re even used to make amaretto. Ah! So what the heck is marzipan? It’s a finely ground almond powder mixed with sugar or honey and sometimes egg whites. This can be its own confectionery treat, or made into adorable little shapes to put on top of cakes. Some times it’s shaped and covered in chocolate, other times it’s used as the icing on cakes. It’s apparently quite popular in the UK to use marzipan to ice large fruitcakes.

What Does Almond Marzipan Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

Indulge yourself with this warm, slightly gourmand, almond marzipan aroma.  A truly luscious combination of almond, rose, benzoin, cassis, and black currant.  It starts with top notes of mimosa and hawthorn, followed by middle notes of creamy rose, black currant, and benzoin, all sitting on a base of almond, vanilla, and musk.

How Do Our Customers Use Almond Marzipan Fragrance Oil?

They make delectable decorative candles. Almond Marzipan fragrance oil performs perfectly in joy wax and wow wax, and is nice and strong in soy wax. The recommended usage percentage in vegetable waxes and paraffin wax is 10%. This fragrance is gel wax compatible. We have no color recommendations for candles. Mine are- maybe a very small amount of brown? Maybe a small amount of yellow? A very slight mix of the two? We’ve got brown liquid candle dye and yellow liquid candle dye and brown and yellow color blocks.

They also make sweet soaps from scratch. The maximum recommended usage percentage for Almond Marzipan fragrance oil in soaps, bath gels, bath oils, and cleaning products is 5%. Our cold process soap testing results show that this fragrance oil performed well in CP soap with no acceleration, no ricing, no separation, and no discoloration; a perfect pour. The scent comes across nice and strong in CP soap. Almond Marzipan fragrance oil performed well in bath and body products. This fragrance oil has a vanillin content of 0.1%, so you might see some very, very slight discoloration in your bath and body products. Again- no coloring recommendations here!

Marzipan is shaped into all kinds of different things and we’ve got all kinds of different soap molds. The smaller molds can be used to make sample-sized soaps or embeds for your candles. I personally think the little duckies mold would work swimmingly. Who doesn’t like cute little duckies? If you’re going for almond authenticity, I’m sorry to say we don’t currently have any almond-shaped molds, but we do have football molds, and after you used the soap enough, it would probably just look almond-shaped. Or you could shave the laces off and just have it be almond-shaped without the wait.

How about perfumes and lotions? Of course! The maximum recommended usage percentage in such applications is 5%. We’ve also found that Almond Marzipan fragrance oil performs perfectly in perfume.

And room scents? You bet! The maximum recommended usage percentage for Almond Marzipan fragrance oil in incense and potpourri is 50%. This fragrance is also nice and strong in aroma beads.

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%.

Alyssum FragranceAlyssum Fragrance Oil – Spotlight

FLOWERS! There are well over 100 different species of this one genus of flower. The most popular type of Alyssum flower is ‘sweet alyssum’ or Lobularia maritima (formerly known as Alyssum maritimum– so no longer technically of the genus Alyssum. I’m sorry if you’re a stickler for the technicalities of plant biology- I’m sure we have another fragrance with a more appropriate name that you might enjoy- Hyacinth, maybe? But I’m sure if you’re a plant biologist you’ve got bigger things on your hands.) Anyway, flowers. They’re cute lil flowers and they smell good. They’re also tough, both heat- and drought-resistant. They can be white, pink, rose-red, or lilac. Caterpillars eat their leaves- it’s adorable, like a children’s book.

What Does Alyssum Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

The wonderful aroma of freshly picked alyssum flowers. Boom. That’s it. Done. Pure and simple.

How Do Our Customers Use Alyssum Fragrance Oil?

I’m glad you asked. They make candles: Alyssum fragrance oil performs perfectly in joy wax, wow wax, and is nice and strong in soy wax.  The recommended maximum usage percentage in vegetable waxes and paraffin wax is 10%. Candle coloring recommendations: two drops of purple liquid candle dye per four pounds of wax or shred a small amount of purple color block into your wax. (I’m gonna go rogue here and suggest pink [the fragrance picture is pink for cornsake]- use a small amount of red liquid candle dye or shred a small amount of red color block into your melted wax. Pink is just light red. Err on the side of caution- you can always add more coloring, but you can’t take dye out of your wax.)

For soap makers: the maximum recommended usage percentage in bath gels, soaps, bath oils, and cleaning products is 5%! Alyssum fragrance does have a vanillin content of 6%- so keep an eye out for discoloration in these types of products. (You’re welcome to try our Vanilla White Color Stabilizer– but we can’t make any guarantees- you have to test it for yourself in your products!) This fragrance performed well in bath and body products. Our cold process soap testing found that Alyssum fragrance oil results in no ricing and no separation. It did however, cause the CP soap to accelerate slightly and discolored the soap to a yellow/orange color. But the scent stayed nice and strong. Our soap coloring recommendations are also purple: use all the purple soap dye you want (or whatever color- *ahem* pink- I’m not here to tell you how to live your life.. or.. dye your soap.) We’ve also got all kinds of cute flower-shaped soap molds! Big ones– like in our CP soap testing videos, little ones, and these ones. We’ve also got a daisy-shaped soap punch (again, apologies to the stickler plant biologists).

The maximum recommended usage percentage for Alyssum fragrance oil in lotions and perfumes is 5% and we have found that it performs perfectly.

Room scents? Oh yeah, for sure. Maximum recommended usage percentage in incense and potpourri: 50%. Alyssum fragrance is nice and strong in aroma beads.

Amish Quilt Fragrance OilAmish Quilt Fragrance – Spotlight

Here we are, talking about the Amish again. Well, here I am again, typing about this interesting group of people who will never see my blog posts. (Again- if you’re Amish and reading this, email me at kross.ngscents@gmail.com and please explain to me how that works.) Another throwback to a simpler time, Amish quilts are handmade and are usually a gift to mark a significant event- a marriage, the birth of a baby, etc. These were traditionally given within the community, but high demand from outsiders (apparently people started snatching Amish quilts right off of clotheslines in the 1970’s) created the need for production of Amish quilts to sell to the population at large. They are still very carefully crafted as if they were for a close personal relative, and the high quality of the materials makes them suitable for both daily use and passing down as family heirlooms. You can use that sucker every day and still give it to your kids, or their kids, or their kids’ kids- that’s how much time, effort, love, and quality is packed into these babies. True to form, individual Amish or Mennonite women only make one or two of these quilts a year (and people were STEALING them! HOW RUDE!) Wrap yourself in the warmth of a homey handmade quilt by using this fragrance in your favorite products.

What Does Amish Quilt Fragrance Smell Like?

This fragrance is the tender sun-kissed florals of heliotrope and jasmine, softly blended with woody violet and herbaceous anise to create a cozy scent of pure comfort.

How Do Our Customers Use Amish Quilt Fragrance Oil?

For candle making, Amish Quilt fragrance performs perfectly in joy wax, wow wax, and is nice and strong in soy wax. The maximum recommended usage percentage in vegetable waxes and paraffin wax is 10%. Amish Quilt fragrance IS gel wax compatible! For coloring your candles, we recommend using four drops of teal liquid candle dye or a small amount of shredded teal color block per four pounds of wax. Why teal? I dunno, man, don’t ask me- I just work here. But if I had to take a guess I would say it’s because teal is a calming color and this is a comfy, cozy scent.
