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.

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.

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 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%.

Amaretto Fragrance Oil

Amaretto Fragrance OilAmaretto Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Okay, here we go. Remember when we talked about almonds being drupes? Amaretto is a liqueur made from a base of drupe seeds: apricot pits or almonds. ‘Amaro’ means ‘bitter’ and ‘etto’ is an Italian suffix for little. So Amaretto is a ‘little bitter’ liqueur. Little bitter liqueur, little bitter liqueur, little bitter liqueur! (Try saying it three times fast!) It is sweetened with either sweet almonds or other sweeteners.  A popular drink made with this little bitter liqueur is an Amaretto sour, a simple mix of Amaretto and sweet and sour drink mix, and garnished with a fresh maraschino cherry. I don’t know about you, but I could use a drink. Happy Monday! But remember to never ingest fragrance oil- no matter how good it smells.

What Does Amaretto Fragrance Smell Like?

This fragrance is the aroma of fresh, true almond with notes of ripe, juicy cherries. So we’ve got our true drupe base sweetened and garnished with cherries. Mmm.

How Do Our Customers Use Amaretto Fragrance Oil?

For candle makers, Amaretto fragrance performs perfectly in joy wax, wow wax, and is nice and strong in soy wax. Maximum recommended usage percentage for vegetable waxes and paraffin wax is 10%. For coloring your candles, we recommend two drops of red liquid candle dye per four pounds of wax, or you can shred a small amount of red color block into your melted wax. But remember to never color your candles with crayons because this will clog your wick.

For soap makers, the maximum recommended usage percentage of Amaretto fragrance in bath oils, soaps, bath gels, and cleaning products is 4.7%. This fragrance has a vanillin content of .5%, so be wary of discoloration in bath and body products and soap. Amaretto fragrance performs well in bath and body products. Our cold process soap testing results found that Amaretto fragrance in CP soap produced no ricing and no separation, no acceleration,  and the soap discolored to a very light beige. Vanilla White Color Stabilizer might help prevent discoloration, but you must do your own testing to be sure. For coloring, we recommend using red soap dye to your heart’s content.

You could probably use a champagne bottle mold to make little embeds for your candles or small sample-sized soaps. Champagne bottle, Amaretto bottle- who can tell the difference? I won’t tell if you don’t. Actually.. it seems like most Amaretto bottles are in some way rectangular, so if you’re really going for authenticity, feel free to peruse our selection of soap molds and… good luck making it look like an Amaretto bottle. You’re creative; I believe in you.

Amaretto fragrance performed perfectly in perfumes, and the maximum recommended usage percentage in lotions and perfumes is .6%. That’s six tenths of a percent- only a little over half of one percent- be careful!

Finally- room scents. The maximum recommended usage percentage for Amaretto fragrance is 50% in potpourri and incense. This fragrance is nice and strong in aroma beads.
