Find out how much of this scent to use
Clementine Cupcake Fragrance Oil: Clementine Cupcakes caught our fancy when we went on a whirlwind cupcake tour of New York City and Portland in the same month. This fragrance smells like orange sherbet with cake batter (think eggs, sugar, meringue and vanilla extract) mixed up like a delicious smoothie and then followed off with a dollop of orange vanilla frosting. It does excellent in cold process soap though does discolor to a darker tan because of the vanilla content.
Vanilla Content: 6.5%
Flashpoint: This medium-flashpoint oil (160ºF) cannot ship via USPS regardless of the shipping method you choose at checkout.

I ordered this mostly based on the great reviews it got and after requests for a citrus scent, and it smelled great in the bottle but in body butters it turned out smelling a little too much like Froot Loops cereal. I still like it and have yet to test it in soaps so I'm going to give it a try! I think it'll blend well with some other fragrances I have too.
I get more requests than any other scent for anything made with this. I didn't like it at first in the bottle either but it is fabulous when soap is done curing, or in scrubs or lotions. A top seller.
I love this scent. It is intense, so you don't get a proper sense of the scent until you add it to a base. It is a wonderful smell. I am sensitive to overbearing fragrances and this one is light when added to a base, yet present. Delightful!!
I got this one in a sampler and at first I didn't like it at all - not out of the bottle in any case. I thought it smelled like some kind of burnt baked good or like cookies or cupcakes that had gone wrong. And the caramelized sugar scent is definitely there and it's unmistakeably a very foodie fragrance. I made a small soap sample with this fragrance though - just to see whether it smells differently in soap. It's strangely addictive and difficult to describe. My husband says it reminds him of something from his childhood from a bakery. And that's probably the high praise considering that my husband is rather picky. It has definitely grown on me and I'm very interested in what it smells like in CP soaps or maybe bath bombs with coffee fragrances. The only reason I don't give it 5 stars- is because there's still a part of me that is not so sure if it's an acquired taste or not. I think I would be very happy though if it turns out to combine well with coffee based fragrances
I hate leaving negative reviews, but something about this fragrance was terribly off for me. OOB I could smell the orange and the sugar, but no cake batter. I could have dealt with that, but there was a VERY strong earthy note in it, just like fresh dirt. I foolishly assumed it would mellow, so I made a batch of whipped soap with it. Big mistake. It smelled even worse in the soap so I tried adding some lemon cake fragrance oil to fix itl. It made it smell more like a cupcake, but it did nothing to cover up the dirt smell. Now my entire house smells like dirt and my husband is clearly annoyed.
I love the other fragrances that brambleberry sells (hence 2 stars instead of 1 star), and the other reviewers seemed to love this, so I think I must have gotten a bad batch. Maybe when mixing this FO, someone accidentally substituted the cake batter portion of the smell with... dirt smell?
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Elizabeth! I'm sorry this fragrance was not your favorite and smelled off to you. We love the mix of juicy orange blended with sweet bakery notes of our Clementine Cupcake Fragrance Oil. I will email you personally to resolve this issue.
