Sage and Seasalt Fragrance Oil Review
To test this we added 8g of fragrance oil to 100g soy wax. We then melted just over 8g of the wax melt in theburner, we usually melt around 7g but a bit more broke off. Wow! this is this a powerful fragrance. The aroma managed to fill an open plan ground floor, up the stairs to the first floor and fill a room on the second floor with a strong fragrance. A little of this goes a long way!
Here are the fragrance notes:
"Top notes of crisp seasalt and aldehydes, mid notes of thyme and fresh ozone accord and base notes of sage, guiaic wood, white sandalwood, patchouli and white pine."
This is a lovely fresh fragrance but it also has a herby and woody side. It is much fresher than some of our other sea / marine or salt fragrances, some of which have quite prominent salt notes. The thyme and sage reminded me of being in a spa. The fragrance is similar to those used in steam rooms and in aromatherapy oils. This fragrance triggered memories of spa visits and a feeling of relaxation and happiness. It could be a kitchen or bathroom fragrance but I would use this fragrance in any room of the house. Even though it’s a fragrance oil not an essential oil it did counter the cooking smells from the kitchen at dinner time. The woody base notes are light and provide a musky and very slightly earthy / woody base to the fragrance. Patchouli can sometimes be quite strong as a base note but in this it is well blended, used sparingly and balances nicely with the other base notes. If you are not a lover of woody fragrances, don’t be afraid to give this one a try - it has a nice mix of fresh / outdoors and hints of wood.
