Beach Daisies FragranceBeach Daisies Fragrance Oil Spotlight

The beach daisy is an adorable little flower known for being a fast-spreading groundcover. It can grow to be up to 18 inches tall and flowers year round in the southern parts of Florida. This plant thrives in mostly dry and even slightly salty environments– ideal for the beach! It even helps keep sand from eroding. Both butterflies and birds are attracted to this beautiful beach bloom.

What Does Beach Daisies Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

Imagine sweeping yourself away to the beach; where you will smell the aromas of fresh spring flowers and green grass while walking on the warm sands.  Natures Garden’s beach daisies fragrance begins with top notes of Asian lemongrass, dune grass, and daisy petals; followed by middle notes of gardenia bloom, ylang ylang, and clove leaf; sitting on base notes of blond woods, amber sands, and sheer musk.

Asian Pear Lily FragranceAsian Pear and Lily Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Asian pears or Nashi pears are large, juicy fruits native to- you guessed it- Asia! They are very different from what we normally think of when we think of pears. These fruits are so juicy, in fact, that they have the tendency to bruise easily. Being so delicate, they are considered a delicacy! In addition, according to Wikipedia, in China, it is considered a social faux pas to share a pear with a friend or loved one. “Sharing a pear” (分梨) is a homophone of “separate” (分离). In certain Asian cultures- lilies are used in food applications. The lily also has an abundance of cultural and literary meanings.  So this fragrance is not only rich in smell, but also rich in meaning!

What Does Asian Pear and Lily Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

A beautiful, complex accord containing top notes of Nashi Pear, Apple, and Leafy Greenery; followed by middle notes of Jasmine, Lily of the Valley, and Rose Petals; all sitting on base notes of Pear Nectar, Musk, and Peony Blossoms.

Apple Cinnamon Streusel FragranceApple Cinnamon Streusel Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Streusel is that delicious crumbly topping you find on the top of pastries. It’s made of flour, butter, and sugar, and modern recipes include spices and chopped nuts. What a tasty treat if you add some cinnamon and hazelnuts. Streusel means “something scattered or sprinkled.” It often sits atop pastries such as apple crisp. Pictured here is another delicious treat- apple strudel– a layered pastry with a sweet filling. Strudel means “whirlpool.” The combination of these two together is enough to make anyone’s mouth water, and has an unbelievably delicious smell, ideal for homemade candles, bath and body products, and room scents.

Almond Marzipan Fragrance

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 FragranceAlmond Fragrance Oil – Spotlight

Almonds are not nuts, but the seeds of drupes. What’s a drupe? It’s a fruit with a fleshy outer part that encapsulates a shell that has a seed inside. There’s a diagram on the Wikipedia link I put right there. I don’t know about you, but I’m a visual learner, so go ahead and take a look if you want to know more. Common examples of drupes include peaches, apricots, and cherries. The cherry part will be important later. So.. an almond is a fruit. Isn’t that nuts? No, almonds are not nuts. See that weird porous potato-looking thing in the picture? That is apparently an unshelled almond. I did not know this until today. (This should not be surprising if you read my previous post where I admitted to not knowing pickles were pickled cucumbers until embarrassingly late in life.) And those flowers are almond blossoms! Google it. I dare ya. Bet you never knew almonds were such pretty fruits.

What Does Almond Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

Our Almond Fragrance Oil is designed to smell like a duplication of Jergen’s lotion. (Nature’s Garden is in no way affiliated with Jergen’s – we just wanted to make a scent that smelled similar to their lotion). A duplication is called a “dupe” for short. So this is a drupe dupe. Almond Fragrance Oil starts with top notes of apple, almond, and cherry, followed by middle notes of orange, cyclamen, and jasmine, all sitting on a base of geranium and rose. So it’s fruit and flowery and there’s a little bit of almond in there, too (but we just learned that almond is a fruit so it fits right in).

How Do Our Customers Use Almond Fragrance Oil?

Handmade scented candles: Almond Fragrance Oil performs perfectly in joy wax and wow wax, and is nice and strong in soy wax. The recommended maximum usage percentage in vegetable and paraffin waxes is 10%. And fortunately, this fragrance is gel wax compatible. Our candle coloring recommendations are 1 drop of brown liquid candle dye per 4 pounds of wax or shred a small amount of brown color block into your melted wax. Remember to never use a crayon to color a candle or you will clog the wick!

Handmade scented soaps: The recommended maximum usage percentage is 5% (same goes for bath oils, bath gels, and cleaning products). Our cold process soap testing results show that Almond-scented soap has perfect pour, no ricing, no acceleration, and no discoloration. The scent sticks- whatever that means. Our coloring recommendations are none. Do whatever you want!

Handmade perfumes and lotions: Almond Fragrance Oil performed perfectly in perfumes, but it is important to note that the maximum usage percentage for lotions and perfumes is only 1%. I’m guessing a lot of people make lotions with this since it’s supposed to smell like a famous lotion. Do it up! Just remember- only 1% fragrance oil!

Handmade room scents: maximum usage percentage in incense and potpourri is 50%. Almond Fragrance Oil comes across nice and strong in aroma beads.
