Made with natural ingredients and essential oils*.
Our Black Cherry Fragrance Oil has been specially formulated to evoke the familiar and well-loved intense scent associated with this rich full-bodied fruit. The fragrance initially exudes a strong and prominent smell associated with both cherry and pomegranate. This aroma is the most pronounced as your candle starts to burn, filling up your room with a scent that is then enhanced by light undertones of sugared plum, raspberry and black cherry. Incorporated into the formulation for this distinctive fragrance is a delightful trace aftertaste of black tea, metallic notes and cashmere musk.
All our fragrance oils are exclusive to Cosy Owl and have been developed by our experts for superior scent throw in a candle and have been optimised to use with our wax. Our oils are 100% concentrated and are fully compatible for use with all our waxes.
How much fragrance should I add?
All our fragrances are high quality and specifically designed for excellent scent throw, meaning that generally speaking less is more. How much to add is slightly complex and we have developed a guide to give you more details here. Generally though starting with between 5-8% is a good idea and up to 10% for less strong fragrances should give you more than enough scent throw. It is always best to experiment with each scent and wax combination and start low and work up. As long as you follow the guide and observe the flash point you will get beautifully scented candles with a bit of practise. Generally speaking you should never put in more than 12% fragrance as the candle will literally begin to sweat or leach the fragrance.
All fragrance oils have what is referred to as a Flash Point – the temperature at which the oil will start to combust and the fragrance is released.
The flash point for Black Cherry is 76°C, for more information on Flash Points follow this link https://www.cosyowl.com/guides/how-to-use-fragrance-oils/
Using this fragrance in a reed diffuser?
This fragrance oil is currently being reformulated; we will update you when it is ready to be used in diffusers again.
Using this fragrance in a soap?
All our fragrances are also specially formulated to work in solid soaps, see the safety data sheet for information on the maximum % of each fragrance that can be used in soap making applications.
Please also refer to our CLP Information Notice on the use of Fragrance Oils in candles before purchasing. This information relates to the chemical composition of the oil along with cautionary details relating to possible allergic reactions.
The ethical sourcing of products is of utmost importance for us and we are very proud to say that all Fragrance Oils supplied by Cosy Owl, and their raw materials, are cruelty free and absolutely no testing on animals or humans takes place. We understand however, there may be some confusion as the Safety Data Sheets (SDS) contain toxicity values for rat and rabbit. This particular section refers to the LD50 (toxicity) of particular ingredients which are required for other industries (such as for use in food) and it is mandatory that we include these where they exist. Any animal test data is based on testing that was not conducted or sanctioned by us or our suppliers, in some cases, these tests were mandated by a government agency or performed decades ago and categorically no testing was performed for the use of these ingredients in products we are supplying.
We advise all customers to test fragrances with our 10ml Tester Bottles prior to ordering in larger sizes or quantities in the unlikely event you may be dissatisfied with a Fragrance Oil. Please see our Delivery & Returns page for full terms and conditions.
*This fragrance contains natural elements (essential oils, extracts, resins, isolates) but is not fully natural. Our fragrance oils have been designed to be as simple, clean and natural as possible whilst delivering the best scent throw and the best range of scent notes. Compounds that aren’t sourced direct from nature are either chemically identical to naturally found compounds, artificially created, or modified slightly, usually to give a slightly stronger scent. Occasionally fragrances not found in nature are used to give the distinctive scent that is required for some more artificial type fragrances. This is the same as all fragrance oils on the market today.
Fragrance oils are typically given a year’s expiry from the date of manufacture however, many fragrance oils can last months or even years past this date if stored correctly. Tests (we don’t offer this service) can be performed on fragrance oils to determine their suitability beyond their shelf life.
Current IFRA documents (IFRA version 48) are relevant and applicable for all our fragrances until February 2022, when the new classifications come into force for existing products, i.e. fragrances that are already on the market. All new fragrances are already subject to the IFRA 49 classifications. Over the coming weeks, as we receive the relevant information, we will be updating and making the necessary changes to our website.
