Rating: Works great in candles! It smells exactly like a cake out of the oven but I couldn't smell the spices in it at all. Just add a couple of drops of other oils and you end up with all kinds of wonderful cakes candles. Smells like a bakery.

Rating: I put a few drops of this oil on paper to test the scent. Dried down completely, it smells like Cinnabun's original cinnamon bun with the cream cheese icing! From the bottle, it reminds me of Dunkaroos.
Rating: This is a lovely scent, however I definitely smell more cinnamon/cake over coffee. If you’re looking for a stronger coffee smell look into another fragrance oil. This one is a very warm and sweet scent, perfect for fall.
By:Caitlyn, Mississauga, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 05-Feb-2021
Rating: Loving this one! Smells sweet, more like pumpkin spice, not so much like coffee.
Rating: I really enjoy this scent, it's sweet but you can definitely smell the spice. It's absolutely coffee cake, not coffee. Which is exactly what I was looking for. Great job on this one!
By:Laura, Birtle, Manitoba Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 19-Jul-2015
Rating: I'm not a fan of this one, it was very strong for me, but a few customers and friends liked it.
It was so strong that I got a headache and felt sick after making 2 batches of Bath Bombs and after days I couldn't smell the bath bombs I made, so I just gave them away.
I love a lot of fragrances from New Directions, but this one never again.
Rating: I am surprised that I like this FO as much as I do. I bought it because I thought it would be nice to have a coffee scent in the candles that I make. Also, a few customers and my fiancé asked me to make coffee-scented candles. I've done several burn tests this week, using this FO in soy wax. It smells amazing. Soft, subtle, and fitting to the name. That's why I like it. It's not COFFEE. It's a nice/mellow coffee cake scent...with enough of the coffee scent that my fiancé loves it. Can't wait to make bigger batches!
Rating: I don't know why some people are disappointed this doesn't smell like coffee. Coffee cake is a spiced, lightly iced cake to be eaten WITH coffee, it's not supposed to taste/smell like coffee. Anyhow, this does have a good spiced coffee cake profile, I just found it a bit weak in wax melts. It has a mild scent, not too heavy on the cinnamon but definitely more than just that.
Rating: Absolutely love this one. Discolours CP soap brown but behaves well otherwise. So yummy!
By:Heather, Winlaw, British Columbia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 16-Sep-2019
Rating: I just love this sent in CP soap! I made cupcake soap and people actually wanted to eat them! Smells as the name is, put a coffee and a spice cake side by side and you have it! It's a sweet sent.
Rating: I was a little apprehensive when ordering this scent, but I wanted some "fall" scents for my candles. The scent is so strong when using the C-3 Soy Container wax. The smell is more "spice" than "coffee" but I like it better that way. Similar to Pumpkin Patch.
Rating: It is a nice smell, however, it is more of a cinnamon smell than the coffee smell that I expected. Should have named it cinnamon roll that would be more appropriate.
By:Ti Hua, Pointe-Claire, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 18-Jun-2020
Rating: Holy cow, I LOVE this FO. Blends very well with other scents and is great even on its own. One of my favourite scents ever! Hope this one never goes away. Sweet, with the perfect amount of spice.
Rating: LOVE this fragrance! Smells like fresh coffee cake straight from the oven. Only problem is, it makes me hungry!! :)
By:Judy, Brampton, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 15-Aug-2014
Rating: I love this oil!!! My favourite fall/winter scent. I've used it in hand soap and scented wax. It's amazing on it's own and I've also mixed it with chocolate and maple sugar in soaps since the dilution ratio in soap is low. Definitely a favourite in wax melts though, strong and long lasting , great throw. Most definitely will be purchasing again.

Rating: Very cinnamon-y. Love it! fan favorite, will be a great scent through the winter. Worked great in soy candles
By:Kristine, Edmonton, Alberta

Rating: As a first timer I absolutely love this scent. NDA has quality products which i enjoy.
It smells just as described.
Rating: The name should be Spice cake! I smell a lot of cinnamon and a bit of almond but can't find the coffee scent at all.
Works well in my CP soap, instant DC to a caramel color.
By:Julie, St-Paul-De-L'île-Aux-Noix, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 31-Aug-2014
Rating: I bought this for my coffee soap , but the smell was way sweeter than I prefer. Scent is right on with the name, a sweet , spicy smell that makes you want to reach for a cup of coffee! I will give it 5 stars because its true to its name but was not for me.
By:Beckie, Elmcreek, Manitoba Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 29-Dec-2013
Rating: Strong cinnamon notes, along with buttery bakery smells. What really gets me, though, is the caramel undertones... so good!
By:Amaris, Nepean, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 23-Jun-2011
Rating: I LOVE this scent! Smells good enough to eat lol. One of my favorites for sure. Would buy this again and again.
Rating: I love this fragrance, smells amazing in the bottle. Unfortunately I didn't check the IFRA standards before buying and the maximum usage rate for soap is only 0.4%! It blends very well with Buttercream Icing in cp soap and the scent is still there at that rate but it does morph to more of a cinnamon fragrance - Waiting to see how it cures.
Rating: I think I'm in love . . . with a scent?! YES! or should I say, "yes, Yes, YES!!!" it's actually *that* good. When diffused into a room, it smells like a bakery fresh of all sorts of delectable baked treats. My husband was so disappointed when he came home and the house was filled with the scent, I had been diffusing for about 45 minutes. The under notes of Cinnamon can be over powering for those sensitive to cinnamon, but even then, only after a while. This warm fragrant oil is sending you into deep inhalations filled with Cinnamon, Vanilla, and yummy baked goodness.
I bet there are a few realtors that could be using this to sell houses! Would be a wonderful addition to soap, body wash, shampoo, body and room sprays, you name it!
By:S. Mic, Waterloo, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 25-Aug-2016
Rating: Made CP wedding favours with this scent and they were such a hit! So lovely and worked well in my soap-discolored due to the vanilla of course but a little titanium dioxide kept that a lovely dark beige. Scent holds up well in CP soap. Definitely buying a bigger bottle this time!

Rating: So much love this scent. It is delicious! I want to grab a cup of coffee and eat a piece of my coffee cake drizzled vanilla icing! Not sure that coffee cake is supposed to smell like coffee is it? My idea is that you eat this spiced cake with coffee and it smells just like the coffee cake that I make. Yuuuuummmyyyy! Kudos on this one!
By:Colleen, Lake Cowichan, British Columbia
Date: Loyal Customer Since: 28-Apr-2016
Rating: Yummy. This is a really delicious smell. Very strong, so only a low percentage needed. I used these in wax melts and is a perfect fall/winter fragrance. Really makes the house smell like coffee cake. Highly recommend.
By:Louise, Hamilton, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 17-May-2015
Rating: This is a wonderfull FO for Christmas time! Not too sweet... it's perfect! :)
By:Melanie, St-Léonard, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 01-Dec-2009
Rating: Absolutely a fall favourite of mine! Used in CP soap and it behaved well but does tend to discolour. I used this to my advantage by mixing a portion of my batter with black oxide and then layered. The results were fantastic with black and varying shades of brown throughout the soap.
By:Diane, Kirkland Lake, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 02-Jul-2012
Rating: This FO smells great in the bottle but i really disliked it in my CP. All I can smell is cinnamon and, though i usually like the smell of cinnamon, this one does not work for me.
Rating: This smell is just lovely! My 5 year old cannot get enough of it. It's such a treat to smell her after she has put on her Coffee Cake & Spice scented lotion. :)
By:Nzingha, Lonndon, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 01-Jan-2015
Rating: I would give this ten stars if I could! I was not able to stop smelling this for the first week!!! Customers love this scent and so do I. I will be purchasing this one over and over!!
By:Lyndsay, London, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 30-Mar-2015
Once cut and cured, this particular oil smells a lot like the Pumpkin Delight - so I ended up calling this soap "Spiced Latte" which worked well for the Holidays. I would have liked a stronger coffee smell, but overall, not a bad scent. Just light.
By:Ayla, Sherwood Park, Alberta Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 15-Aug-2013
Rating: I just got this scent today and it's smells just like my favorite coffee cake with a hint of cinnamon. Very warm and welcoming scent, love it!
By:Charlene, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 14-Feb-2012
Rating: Great smell and great price I used it on my CP soap and it came up wonderful
Rating: Just soaped with this oil today. This oil has a nice subtle scent out of the bottle - not too strong, but it definitely smells like baked goods.
I swapped the water in my CP recipe for Strong coffee.
Won't know how the scent holds up until I cut and cure it - but I hope it's strong because coffee swapped for water - always smells.........different. Hope this oil covers it.
By:Ayla, Sherwood Park, Alberta Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 15-Aug-2013
Rating: I used this in CP with maple sugar wow smelled like a latte
Rating: Oh my gosh this FO is so amazing! You just want to eat it, its irresistible! No acceleration in CP but did discolor to a dark brown, which is fine for me since its coffee it should be brown anyways :)
By:Victoria, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 13-May-2013
Rating: This thing smells exactly like coffee cake. Smells delicious. I want to eat it. Probably my favourite out of all of the 10 samples I bought.
By:Merlinda, Scarborough, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 04-Sep-2014
Rating: Smells delicious, just like a freshly baked Coffee Cake. Nice and strong scent. Does discolour to a dark Tan.
By:Dianne, Portage La Prairie, Manitoba Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 11-Nov-2013
Rating: I definitely give it a five-star rating. I made a soy candle with this oil, and my guest, as soon as she opened the front door, said, "oh, this place smells like a cafe!" :)
By:Rika, Edmonton, Alberta Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 01-Aug-2009
Rating: This is an amazing scent and works beautifully in CP soap. It will turn brown with time so I suggest leaving a portion of the soap unscented and swirl that in so it's not just a brown lump of soap. :)
By:Rose, Haileybury, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 15-Mar-2014
Rating: One of my most popular fragrances! I absolutely love it! I mix it with a bit of nda's pumpkin spice and a hint of maple pecan and it makes the most amazing body butters which I sell on my etsy store! Love love love it!!!!!
By:Nasstassia, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 24-Feb-2014
Rating: Yummy scent!!!... smells like a buttery, spice cake...not fake smelling like some others.
Rating: Its a nice scent. I personally hate cinnamon scented anything and that is all I could smell in this fragrance, but that's more of a personal preference more then anything and the finished product wasn't for me. It worked well in soy candles. Very strong.
By:Ewelina, Surrey, British Columbia
Date: Loyal Customer Since: 22-Oct-2013
Rating: I really do like this scent but i can't smell even a bit of coffee like I had hoped. Its more like a spice cake with nuts. But still a good fragrance.
By:Kyla, Espanola, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 13-Jan-2012
Rating: This scent is so amazing! I love it for Halloween and Christmas time!
By:Stephanie, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 24-Aug-2010
Rating: The smell stays true in bath bombs and melt and pour soaps, but I found the coffee aspect of the scent faded considerably in CP soaps leaving a cinnamon hearts-type scent. Performed well (no ricing, acceleration). Smells nice, but would not recommend as a coffee fragrance for CP soap.
Rating: I kinda liked the smell out of the bottle, but since i bought it for my coffee cp soap i wasn't sure. I made a test batch with a regular recipe with nothing special in it, and i accelerated trace a bit. It discolored a dard brown. After almost a month, the smell is still strong, and mostly cinnamon, nothing coffee. So i guess it you want a cake spice it's fine ! I used 3% ppo and that's a bit too strong in my opinion. I would recommend 2-2.5%.

Rating: Wow I regret not buying a bigger bottle.Smells so yummy i could eat it.
