For over five years, Eroma (previously known as Natural Candle Supply) has been working closely with artisan candle fragrance producer Luxaroma to create and develop the best quality fragrance oils in Australia. In collaboration with Luxaroma, we test hundreds of new fragrances every month and are proud to offer you the best high quality fragrance oils from our latest testing. All fragrance oils are tested in natural waxes for compatibility and scent throw. We reject over 90% of all fragrance oils tested and accordingly end up with a high quality boutique line of cosmetic grade oils. We know you will enjoy them. Click here to visit the Luxaroma website.
These are synthetic in substance, in that they are not formulated directly from plant origin. Having said this, many fragrance oils do contain a high percentage of essential oils. In general, fragrance oils work better in candles than essential oils, the reason being that many are fine-tuned for the type of wax, whereas essential oils are fixed in composition.
An important consideration is that fragrance oils are no different to a high quality designer perfume, so if you're looking for a candle that produces a beautiful fragrance, then this is the oil to use for your candles.
Typical usage is around 10% or 100 grams of fragrance oil per 1,000 grams of wax. However, we also recommend that everyone conducts their own testing. In order to achieve accurate results and consistency, it's necessary to use accurate digital scales.
Note: Whilst blending fragrance oils is possible, we have not conducted testing and therefore cannot guarantee end results. Take care to accurately follow instructions when adding fragrance as if the wax is too hot, the fragrance oil can vaporise and in some circumstances ignite. Please make sure you follow instructions when adding fragrances; hot temperatures can damage the fragrance leading to a different scent than desired.
Direct from our own fragrance creation laboratory, Eroma is proud to present its new range of Fragrance Notes. Share in the knowledge that is normally reserved for perfumers and add some unique “notes” of your own to an existing Eroma fragrance you already love or think is in need of a little tweak.
Boosted with essential oils, Eroma Fragrance Notes will give you that little something different you have been looking for in you fragrance oils. There are limitless combinations using the Fragrance Notes, so grab one and create your very own scent symphony!
Please note all fragrance notes due to their raw materials may discolour the wax. Please also be aware that there are limitless combinations using the fragrance notes and not all of them may be stable in combination with other candle fragrances or in your candle wax blend. Please test small quantities first.
As an example, if you were going to use the Tangerine Base with a recommended usage of 5-10%, this represents adding the Tangerine Base to another candle fragrance oil at 5 grams per 100 grams up to 10 grams per 100 grams of fragrance oil. This is a good starting point and should be used as a guide only.
As a further guide, please note that we will be selling the Fragrance Notes in the 25ml and 100ml size with a pipette. We have stated how many drops it will take to add 1 gram. Therefore in the example of Tangerine Base if you wanted to add this to 20 grams of fragrance oil at the ratio of 5-10%, this would equate to 1-2 grams of Tangerine Base. Since 1-2 grams is difficult to weigh, you can simply count the number drops using the approximate ratio of 38 drops per gram.
Once you have added the desired amount, mix thoroughly by stirring or shaking your bottle for at least one minute so the Fragrance Note combines well with your existing fragrance oil.
