Wine ScentCabernet Sauvignon Wine Fragrance OilFragrance Oil Spotlight

Cabernet Sauvignon has a long history that was first introduced in  the year 1820.  After decades of experimentation, the general view of Cabernet Sauvignon has improved as more winemakers find ways to complement their native grape varieties with Cabernet as a blending component.  The grape itself is small with seeds, and has a thick black skin.  It has a not too sweet grape flavor that is inviting and pleasurable.  When it comes to this wine scent, our customers were astounded with the performance of Cabernet Sauvignon Wine Fragrance in their products.  There is no strong “alcohol” scent and they are left with a wonderful grape aroma that is surprisingly delightful, full bodied, and completely high in demand when it comes to wine scents.

What does Cabernet Sauvignon Wine Fragrance Oil smell like?

This fragrance oil by Natures Garden is the sweet aroma of wild grapes enhanced with hints of strawberries and sweet sugary notes with a light alcoholic background. A wonderful aroma of red sweet cabernet wine.  An NG Original Scent!

How do our customers use Cabernet Sauvignon Fragrance Oil?

For any candle crafters and home scenters, Cabernet Sauvignon Wine Fragrance Oil is used in WOW, Joy, Pillar of Bliss, and Soy waxes.  The scent has very strong hot and cold throw, especially in soy and Joy waxes.  This delightful wine scent is even used in oil burners, room fresheners, aroma beads, and smelly jellies.

For any bath and body crafters, this fragrance oil offers uniqueness for your line.  The usage rate for this wine scent is 3%.  Cabernet Sauvignon does have a vanillin content is 6.5%, so Vanilla White Color Stabilizer is advised by our customers to stabilize discoloration in finished products.  The most common products that customers use this wine scent to make are: spritz lotions, whipped body butters, bath bombs, salt scrubs, melt and pour soaps, and bath gels.  Finally, for those of you that are cold process soapers, this fragrance oil is unmatched.  Here are the official results: Perfect Pour, no ricing, no acceleration, discolors to a dark brown, but is totally worth it.

gemini scentsGemini Scents

Once again, it is that time to officially change the zodiac sign!  This year we wanted to do something a bit different.  So, for a little fun, we thought of researching exactly what fragrances appeal to people under a particular zodiac sign.  And, what we found in our search was what aromatic notes most likely correspond with certain astrological signs.  These fragrance oil suggestions contain aromatic notes that a person born under a specific Zodiac sign will like based on their common personality traits.

Beginning May 21st, Geminis energetically become the driving force in the spotlight. So, we at Natures Garden would like to be the first to announce, Happy Birthday Gemini!  And then cordially invite everyone to the fascinating world of Gemini scents.

Geminis are considered people born between the dates of May 21st and June 21st.

Sadly, we currently do not have anyone working at Natures Garden that is a Gemini.  However, we have friends and family that are Geminis.  They are a fun loving crowd that love to talk.  Being that they are highly intellectual, geminis are constantly questioning and are forever thirsting for knowledge.  And, dueled with their intellect, they are also vastly creative.  Since geminis balance a life of inquisitiveness and wisdom they are often the life of a social gathering and really know how to work a room.  But, on the flip side; geminis can also be great listeners who can tap into their library of information and experience and offer sound advice.

Gemini–  Clever, Imaginative, Adaptable, Spirited
Symbol– the Twins
Sign–  Air

This intellectual group is not only polite and energetic, but also adaptable to any situation. Dueling both a chatty side and a sympathetic ear, people with this sign need diversity. Gemini’s have a true admiration for fragrance oils that present a contrast but still manage to come together to make a beautiful aroma.

People that have the sign of Gemini really take to these fragrance notes:

Fruits: Grapefruit, Lemon, Tangerine

Herbs: Lavender, Spearmint, Peppermint

Nuts: Hazelnut, Walnut, Almond
