Made with natural ingredients and essential oils*.
Our French Vanilla Fragrance Oil has been specially formulated to evoke the familiar scent associated with vanilla, but not all vanilla flavour are the same. Vanilla bean varieties are quite often named in relation to where they have been grown, in countries such as Tahiti, Madagascar and Mexico. This is not the case with French vanilla which does not simply relate to a vanilla variety, but to the classic French way of making ice cream using an egg-custard base. The oil initially exudes a strong and prominent smell associated with lemon cream and absolute blossom. 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 raw vanilla and tonka bean. Incorporated into the formulation for this distinctive fragrance is a delightful trace aftertaste of French vanilla and amber.
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 French Vanilla is 93.3°C, for more information on Flash Points follow this link https://www.cosyowl.com/guides/how-to-use-fragrance-oils/

*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.

Smells delicious! I bought a sample initially and then recently purchased 200ml and made a candle straight away! Great scent throw hot and cold (I used Kerasoy Container Wax). No leaking bottle; arrived perfect.

I have really enjoyed working with this scent. I have tried many vanillas and this one is very nice.
It is sweet and changes from the bottle to the candle. I use ecosoya, and it gives a very beautiful scent. I’m about to order another bottle.

I purchased the tester to try and it is absolutley devine,
I will be ordering a larger quantity today.
Ce parfum sent bon mais je ne m’attendait pas à un parfum de vanille aussi doux, c’est la même odeur qu’une crème dessert à la vanille.
This scent smells good but I didn’t expect such a sweet vanilla scent, it smells like a vanilla dessert cream.(translated from fren

I’ve not been making candles for long but these fragranced make it nice and easy! The French vanilla is lovely and works well. What I would say is that this vanilla fragrance is a little sweeter than others (which I love), so if you’re unsure, maybe order a sample fi

The smell from this candle scent is perfect not to strong but noticeable enough for people to talk about it.

The smell ftom this is quite strong, I use 10% FL pretty much as standard but could get away with less. Definitely one of my favourites.

Rob. Ps –
What a beautiful fragrance! Leans a little towards the sweet end of vanilla giving it a slight sense of cream soda but still gorgeous
Le parfum sent très bon. Il convient à mes attentes
Lovely but a little sweet smelling for me, but if you love vanilla you will love this scent.
