What Does Toxic Trance Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

When we asked our perfumist to create some new Halloween/Gothic scents for us, he created a sexy scent that he referred to as “Intoxicating Edward”.  We love the Twilight series, and we were simply amazed at how well the perfumist captured the charming charisma of Edward in this fragrance;  his alluring eyes, his flawless, metro-sexual appearance, and even the way he glistened like gold when we was in the sun.  However, we chose to give this fragrance a name that lasted beyond the Twilight phenomena; thus we renamed this fragrance “Toxic Trance”.   NG Original Scent!

Any soap creations can use different methods of coloring, just as long as you don’t use candle dyes as they lack body safeness.

Other bath and body products can be created with this sensual aroma. Bath oils, bath gels, soaps, lotions, perfumes, bath teas, bath bombs, and other related bath and body creations can be made of no more than 5% of this aroma.

Oh my darling! This Nature’s Garden Clementine fragrance oil is absolutely delicious! Not only does this scent resemble a delectable, citrus that one, such as myself, cannot get enough of, but a clementine is the tastier of the citrus family.

If you incorporate this enticing fruit fragrance into your recipes, then you are sure to not be disappointed.

If used at no more than 10% in candles that use either paraffin wax or vegetable wax, they will perform perfectly. Further, the scent performs wonderfully in joy wax, wow wax, and is nice and strong in soy wax.

A bar will slightly discolor to a slight beige color. Although there isn’t much discoloration, the .7% vanillin content indicates that vanilla white stabilizer may be able to whiten the slightly off white bar. However, there are more than 40 ingredients used in fragrance manufacturing that may contribute to discoloration of products so testing is recommended. Finally, we recommend using orange soap colorant in the amount that satisfies you for coloring the bars. Remember to ever use candle dye in any body products as it is not body safe.

Apple Crisp FragranceApple Crisp Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Why not warm up to a freshly-baked apple aroma just in time for autumn? We’ve got plenty of them, and they all smell awesome. Apple Crisp- the food- is baked apples topped with streusel. If you click the link in the title, there’s a sweet free Apple Crisp recipe on our Apple Crisp Fragrance Oil page. Mmm. Remember to never ever eat fragrance oil. Also remember that once you use a baking pan, measuring utensil, or any other kitchen supplies to make soap, candles, anything with chemicals, fragrance oils or dyes, don’t use it again for baking. It’s no longer food safe. Even if you wash it, chemical residue may still remain, and can get into your food. Blech. So buy two adorable kitchen sets- one for making your delicious apple crisp, and the other for making your delicious-smelling Apple Crisp-scented candles/soaps/lotions/perfumes/room-scents.

What Does Apple Crisp Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

The aroma of a red juicy apple combined with buttercream and cinnamon with a base note of a baked oatmeal cookie.

How Do Our Customers Use Apple Crisp Fragrance Oil?

Candles? Of course. This alluring apple aroma performs perfectly in joy wax and wow wax, and is nice and strong in soy wax. The maximum usage percentage in vegetable and paraffin waxes is 10%. It is not gel wax compatible. Our coloring recommendations for this sweet spicy scent are to use 3 drops of burgundy, plus 3 drops red, plus one drop brown liquid candle dye per four pounds of wax. Or if you prefer to use color block, we suggest shredding ample amounts of burgundy, red, and cinnamon into your melted wax. Never color candles with crayon- it will clog your wick!

Soaps? Certainly. The maximum usage percentage of this bakery scent in soaps, bath oils, bath gels, and cleaning products is 1%. Cold process soap testing results show that this apple aura is ideal for CP soap: no acceleration; no separation; no ricing; good scent retention. The vanillin content of this freshly-baked fruit fragrance is 3%- so it may have the tendency to discolor your bath and body products. In fact, our cold process soap testing results found that it discolored soap to a very light tan color. If you wish to combat this- try our Vanilla White Color Stabilizer. It’s not a guarantee, but it may help. Ultimately, you are responsible for the results in your finished product. Anyway, we recommend coloring your bath and body products scented with Apple Crisp fragrance by using burgundy soap dye (on clearance!) in the amount that satisfies you. But in case we run out of that by the time you read this blog post, perhaps mix a little Red Oxide and Brown Oxide FUN soap colorant to create an apple cinnamon-y color.

Can I rub it on my body? Sure, if you make lotions or perfumes. The maximum recommended usage percentage in such applications is 0.5%- measure carefully. This fragrance performs perfectly in perfumes.

Can I rub it on the WORLD?! Uh.. sure. Just be responsible about it. The maximum recommended usage percentage for incense and potpourri is 50%. and this scent comes across nice and strong in aroma beads.
