No frosting, perfect pour no fuss, 7-8% fragrance load and removes super easy from clamshell. Looks glossy and classy. Love it
Too soft and too greasy. Old Pillar blend was excellent.
To soft for pillar candles. Very disappointed. I am looking for another pillar wax.
This wax is total rubbish for pillars and melts!! There is NO CHANCE of this wax holding up to 18% fragrance as the description says it will!! Melts and candles come out greasy and feel horrible. I hate this wax and am unsure of what I can do to survive. I will have to start blending my own and that is time that i really cant afford!! So disappointing. We have been an Eroma customer for years and this is the absolute worst product we have ever purchased and the ONLY one i felt was bad enough to warrant a review / warning!!
This wax unfortunately is nowhere near as good as the older pillar blend. It is just way too soft!! I have continued to test the correct ratios to use (how much soy wax and how much blending wax). I have done test burns and the candles do not burn as well as they did with the old pillar blend - very disappointing. I only offer pillar candles so I’m stuck with this stuff - everyone prefers soy to Palm and parrafin.... EcoSoya - bring back the old pillar blend please!!!!
Sadly disappointed in Q230. It is way too soft for pillar candles and no where near as good as the old pillar blend (which was brilliant). We have had to pull pillar candles from our range which is costing us money. Our customers do not want palm wax or paraffin so blending is not an option for us. Please let the manufacture know that Q230 is not good enough.
Perfect result for melts AAA+
Sadly, we're disappointed in this wax. We had to put the molds in freezer to get the wax to release. We're noticing a faint vinegar smell in the raw form that we can detect it in the final product, which seems to clash with any sort of musky or amber base. The entire quantum line seems to be very picky about what FO it plays nice with. We're also not noticing much of a difference between the Q220 and Q230. They feel like the same wax as far as hardness and texture goes. Nowhere near as hard as the Ecosoya PB.
I have used this wax for my large pillar candles. In my opinion this definitely needs blending wax as it appears to be softer when used on its own in comparison to the old pillar blend. The same ratio I previously used does not work in this wax so I’m still testing the correct ratios to use. The candle I made using 230 completely by itself broke as it came out of the mould and the colour also didn’t look right at all as it had all pooled at the top of the candle. The candle I made with the blending wax and 230 was harder and came out of the mould without breaking. It was a liquid black colour and it looked excellent. It has not frosted overnight either.
This wax after a much anticipated wait was a let down with regards to pillar candles. It is much too soft and left a greasy finish. It is very difficult to remove from aluminum molds and seems to chip etc. In comparison to other pillar blends it is let down as it is much too soft which is noticeable from the moment you realise you can literally squash one of these pellets in your hands straight from the bag!
I used Q230 wit 8% fragrance for melts and it worked great! Great scent throw and easy removal from mould :)
