Rating: This is a true grapefruit scent and I have used it in several soaps, alone and in combination with other citrus scents (lime, orange). I have also used it in lotion successfully. Highly recommend. No issues soaping with it.

Rating: Great scent very close to real pink grapefruit :) No acceleration and no discoloring for me in cp soap
By:Victoria, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 13-May-2013
Rating: I have been searching for a tangy grapefruit scent and so glad to have found this one. It is excellent for liquid soap and creams, have not tried it in cold process as yet. It s worth looking through the whole list of oils when shopping as this oil is at the bottom under R for ruby and I had missed it.
By:Nicole, Vercheres, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 25-Nov-2007
Rating: OMG!!! this smells amazing, just like pink grapefruits! .....I used it in CP soaps and it was really nice to work with because it did not accelerate my trace time so I was able play with my colors...it did not change my soap color at all....still nice white color,( with my other colors)....will be a big hit with my customers...LOVE IT!
Rating: Fantastic fragrance! Very true scent, works well in M&P soap. Will definitely make this a regular purchase.
By:Mary, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 02-Sep-2014
Rating: We introduced this only 6 weeks ago to our bath bomb range. It has sold out (30 bombs) at both shows we have taken it to so far! Undoubtedly our best seller this season :)
By:Jackie, Melancthon, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 14-Nov-2009
Rating: Completely true to its named. Smells like fresh grapefruit, no doubt about it.
By:Merlinda, Scarborough, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 04-Sep-2014
Rating: I love this straight up or blended with other oils/scents. A great light, fruity smell. It's a great option if you want a nice grapefruit scent without the accompanying photosensitivity associated with grapefruit EO.
By:A., Dawson Creek, British Columbia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 20-Jul-2013
Rating: This is a winner...really smells like fresh grapefruit...not fake smelling at all.
I just reviewed the oatmeal cookie dough which was a terrible fake smell that did not smell at all like oatmeal cookies.
Rating: Pretty darn good approximation of real grapefruit. Fresh, fun, and fruity.
By:Tamarah, Montreal, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 10-Dec-2012
Rating: So far I used this in a white melt and pour base with a touch of pink colour. The smell is amazing!! Will be buying another bottle :)
By:Rose, Haileybury, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 15-Mar-2014
Rating: this is without a doubt the best grapefruit fragrance ive ever tried.. not to mistake the other grapefruit scent also sold here... night and day. A++ for this one it is loved by all.. and most popular amongst man.
By:Celena, Lasalle, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 28-Nov-2012
Rating: I decided to try this in my CP soap at .5 ppo. OMG, what an AMAZING smell. So fresh, crisp, and sweet. This F.O. also did not discolour my soap or accelerate trace. Could likely be increased to .7 ppo without any concerns, but I tend to like my soaps to be more subtle. I'll definitely be back to buy more. Thanks NDA!
Rating: I just made my first batch of cp soap with this and I just love it. It smells just like a juicy grapefruit. It does not accelerate trace so that you have plenty of time to play with colours and texture. It also does not change the colour of the soap. One of my favourites.
By:Marie, Oakville, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 30-Jun-2012
Rating: This is a very juicy smelling fragrance oil. Definitely noticeable as grapefruit right away. It has been very well-received in soaps. One of my personal favorites.
By:Rhiannon, Edmonton, Alberta

Rating: Just like juicy grapefruit. Makes you want to eat one. Smells fresh and makes your mouth water, from the expectant sourness you'd get from eating a grapefruit. I absolutely love, love it!!
By:Margie, Brockville, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 13-Sep-2011
Rating: Great to find a phthalate-free grapefruit FO. I bought this to boost up the grapefruit EO. It works great!
By:Farkhanda, Oakville, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 19-Feb-2010
Rating: Loved the scent and it is extremely close to grapefruit EO. Didn't accelerate or discolor in CP. I used it at .5ppo and it leaves a lovely light-medium scent with no fading so far after 6 weeks.
Rating: SO pretty! Smells just like a freshly cut grapefruit! Sweet, sour, eye-opening. Love this one!
By:Az, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 27-Apr-2010
Rating: Very nice, crisp citrus notes of grapefruit.
By:Marilyn, Newmarket, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 11-Jan-2010
Rating: Smells just like grape fruit ! But I recommend at least 3% in a CP soap. 2% is not strong enouph.
It does not accelerate trace, and it does not change the color of the soap base.
It's my favorite up to now. And my friends and collegues love it to.
By:Edith, Mirabel, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 22-Sep-2007
Rating: Smells exactly like tearing into a Ruby Red Grapefruit! No hint of candy. Used in CP soap @ 0.5oz ppo - no accelleration & at 3 weeks into cure it still smells tangy! Also used in body butter - absolutely the best grapefruit scent. Will definitely repurchase. If you are looking for an authentic grapefruit scent - this is it!
By:Terry, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 31-Oct-2008
Rating: Good grief, I can't believe it : so fruity, so juicy ! The true thing ! Obviously, I will order some more ! La vraie odeur du pamplemousse rose, sans arrière-odeur chimique. I will use this f.o. with grapefruit e.o., as the smell of the e.o. vanishes too fast. Once again, a very good product.
By:Louise, Montreal, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 25-Feb-2006
Rating: This fragrance is my all time favourite! It literally makes my mouth water when I smell it, and has become a huge hit with my customers.

Rating: This smells exactly like ruby grapefruit! I like this smell so much, I actually wear it as a perfume; just one drop on my wrists, and it stays a long time.
By:Amelie, Montreal, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 14-Feb-2009
Rating: Ruby red grapefruit is one of my favorite smells in the world, and I've tried a few other versions of this fragrance and been deeply disappointed. This one from New Directions is spot-on perfect. I love it!
By:Crystal, Port Moody, British Columbia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Apr-2008
Rating: Very strong pink grapefruit FO... smells very true, not fake like many other fruity scents! I used 1.5 oz for a 3.5 batch of oils in CP soap and the scent was good. No acceleration or discolouration. A+!
By:Ashley, Marathon, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 06-Jan-2009
Rating: I find this scent to be a bit much(smell wise) but everyone else that smells it loves it, and when these people are your customers you learn to love it to.
By:Mark, Sydney, Nova Scotia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 05-Dec-2008
