The pour temperature of this palm wax is higher than the recommended temperature for adding fragrance. Palm wax does need a high pour temperature to achieve the desired effect. It’s also true that fragrances should be added at lower temperatures, closer to the melt point of the wax. This translates to usually around 70-75’C. This is to stop the fragrance boiling off and losing some of its top notes and potency.
To find balance between the fragrance temp and the pour temp you can pour the fragranced wax hot, i.e. at 90C, but do not let it sit at that temperature for long between adding the fragrance and pouring. Testing is important to get the right balance for your fragrance oil
