Aspen Winter FragranceAspen Winter Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Aspen, Colorado is the ideal location for a destination vacation — for your nose! (Probably the rest of you, too, but it’s about a five hour flight from Cleveland, Ohio to Aspen, so I’m gonna stay put and just smell the scent.) A beautiful town located in the Rocky Mountains, Aspen is a popular ski resort, and it seems that the only times it doesn’t snow there are the summer months July and August. It’s even been home to the Winter X Games since 2002 (extreme sports – ESPN in Aspen). Aspen is ideal for winter sports because there’s so much snow! This scent will evoke the feeling of standing on a snowy mountain top, overlooking the beautiful Colorado landscape, without having to bundle up!

What Does Aspen Winter Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

The aroma of crisp citrus notes of orange and lemon and sweet cherry, intertwining with an abundance of warm winter spices of clove and cinnamon, sitting on a dry down of sweet vanilla and musk.
Top notes: Orange, lemon, and cherry
Mid notes:  Clove, cinnamon, and spice
Base notes:  vanilla and musk

How Do Our Customers Use Aspen Winter Fragrance Oil?

They surround themselves with this sweet, spicy scent by making darling decorative candles. Aspen Winter 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 in vegetable and paraffin waxes is 10%. Our coloring suggestions for candles are to use 3 drops of blue liquid candle dye per four pounds of wax or shred a small about of blue color block into your melted wax. Remember to never use crayons to color your candles- they’ll clog your wick!

They also scent rooms in simpler ways (sans wax). The maximum recommended usage percentage for this crisp accord in incense & potpourri is 50%. This fragrance comes across nice and strong in aroma beads and would make a nice filler for any reed diffuser kit.

You can clean with it, too! The maximum recommended usage percentage in cleaning products is 5%.

Customers use this scent to create beautiful bath and body products. Aspen Winter performed well in bath and body products. The maximum recommended usage percentage for this full-bodied fragrance in soaps, bath oils, and bath gels is 5%. Our cold process soap testing results found that Aspen Winter has perfect pour: no acceleration, no ricing, and no separation. The scent stays nice and strong after cure. It does, however, discolor soap to a dark chocolate color. This is likely due to the 12% vanillin content of the fragrance. High vanillin content increases the likelihood of discoloration in bath and body products. One way to combat discoloration is to try Vanilla White Color Stabilizer, but you are responsible for the results in your finished products. Otherwise, our coloring suggestions for bath and body products are to use blue soap colorant in the amount that satisfies you. Never color your bath and body products with candle dye; don’t do it!

As for the shape of your soap, you’re welcome to make it in any shape you like- but how cute would little Aspen-Winter-scented snowflake soaps be? We’ve got a medium-sized snowflake soap mold perfect for melt-and-pour soap, and we also have a mini-snowflake mold for mini-snowflake soaps (or even mini-snowflake candle tarts)!

Customers also use this scent in body applications outside of the bath. The maximum recommended usage percentage for this spicy scent in lotions and perfumes is 5%. This fragrance performed perfectly in perfumes.
