Rating: Smells delicious but faded to nothing in my cold process soap I used 2.5oz in 40oz of oils along with some other scents and the only thing that came through was the small amount of lemon 5-fold I used. Darn. Maybe it will work in bath bombs.
Rating: I definitely love this scent.AWESOME WILL BUY AGAIN.
By:Rose, American Canyon, California Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 26-Sep-2016
Rating: I purchased this because grapefruit essential oil fades so fast. I used it in CP soap and it almost smells better than essential oil. I will definitely be buying this again, I love it

Rating: Success! Although I love love love New Directions products, I have had a difficult time finding scents with lasting power. Ruby Grapefruit DOES have lasting power. Add to that the scrumptious, very true scent of juicy grapefruit and this fragrance is a real winner. I'll definitely be buying more of this one. Thank you, ND!
Rating: The reviews keep saying "dead-on," but this isn't dead-on. It's better than dead-on. Real grapefruit is tart and acidic, but this is soft, sweet and delicious. Absolutely my favorite scent I've used all year.

By:Cindy, Vesper, Wisconsin Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 10-May-2013
Rating: I bought this to give my citrus essential oils a boost & some staying power in CP soap. Does not smell synthetic at all, just smells exactly like someone has just peeled a grapefruit, it's terrific. I would definitely buy this again!
By:Lisa, Pellston, Michigan Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 03-May-2008
Rating: Almost 5 years later I am still ordering Pink Grapefruit. I have tried grapefruit from so many other vendors but no one can match NDA. I ordered 3 bottles this time as it's so requested and I go through it so fast. Don't bother with a sample size bottle. You will find a million uses for this fantastic fragrance.
By:Lynda, Birmingham, Alabama Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 08-Dec-2008
Rating: Totally agree with all the positive reviews. This smells very close to real grapefruit. Doesn't smell synthetic like some FOs can. Very clean, bright and refreshing.

Rating: Smells accurate. Used it as part of a blend in cp soap and it performed perfectly.
By:Silvia, Riverside, California Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 15-Apr-2013
Rating: I have smelled a lot of scents and this is my all time favorite!! It smells so fresh and clean, just like a real grapefruit! It stays strong in CP soap. I used 1oz/1lb and after 5 weeks still as strong as the day I made it. It did not cause the soap to seize or discolor. This is defiantly a must have!

Rating: This oil smells like the real thing! Will definitely soap with this and use in bath bombs.
By:Christina, Columbia, South Carolina Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 11-Jan-2013
Rating: OH MY GOODNESS!!! Okay, sorry for yelling BUT this scent is the truth! It is truly an addictive yummy, mouthwatering, juicy, tantalizing scent! Can you tell that I really like this FO? Well, I do & so do my customers. I add this scent to reddish pink glycerin M&P soap & added it to my holiday bath & body pamper baskets along with lemongrass & goji berry scented glycerin soaps. What a great set of soaps & the ruby red grapefruit was the star. I even made body scrub & body butter with the RRG scent & not only can I NOT stop sniffing myself, but I have a hard time fending off everyone that wants to sniff me throughout the day! Snicker, snicker! I had to purchase three bottles of this stuff. Now I have to try a citrus blend in a soy candle to complete the set. Thanks ND you are the best! Oh, & my order arrived in NO time & I reordered during the height of the Christmas holiday season !
Rating: Best Ever!!!! Just like a real grapefruit!!!. True scent. Excellent in bath bombs. Have not try in cp yet, that's next.
By:Ewa, Winnipeg, Manitoba Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Excellent, dead on for ruby red grapefruit!
By:P., Columbus, Ohio Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 26-Feb-2011
Rating: amazing smelling grapefruit - quite possibly the very best i've ever smelled. holds up perfectly in cp soap. lovely!
By:Meredith, Los Angeles, California Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 22-Aug-2012
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: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: The best grapefruit FO I've ever tried. Smells even more like fresh grapefruit than EO! No acceleration in CP, no discoloration (at 24 hours - new batch). Soaped beautifully. Love that it's phthalate free.
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 Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: I am not sure if i can even detect the other notes in this oil but to me it smells of fresh juicy ruby reds. I use this one alone as well as blended with other scents.
By:Deborah, Reseda, California
Date: Loyal Customer Since: 13-Mar-2010
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: 09-Nov-2005
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: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: I love the smell of grapefruit, and this was such a pleasant surprise when i sniffed it! Absolutely wonderful.
By:Tdawn, Berea, Kentucky Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 16-Feb-2011
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.
By:Jennifer, St-Maurice, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: This stuff smells more like Grapefruit than an actual Grapefruit. No Kidding! I've never smelt anything like this ever before! I don't recommend mixing this one unless you blend it sparingly, as it has a tendency to make everything its blended with smell like Grapefruit. Extremely potent Grapefruit fragrance.
By:Anthony, Sparta, Tennessee Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 15-Jan-2010
Rating: This scent smells absolutely delicious!!
I tried using it in the lip balm base, adding beeswax beads and helichrysum floral water to the mixture. So far everyone that's tried or even SMELLED them has gone crazy and demanded i make them one. =]

Rating: I originally bought this scent on the recommendation of others on a soap forum. I am so glad I did! It smells just like real grapefruit. I just finished a batch of cold process soap, and it smelled wonderful as I poured it into the mold. This is my second purchase of this fragrance, and I'm sure I will keep it on hand.
By:Susan, Fort Wayne, Indiana Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 30-Jun-2009
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: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: I purchased this from your company a number of months ago; made a sample of a product; and forgot it. Just recently a customer has begun to ask for more products in this fragrance. She said she's crazy about it. I combined it and called it Ruby Margarita. It's a very refreshing smell for the summer and should be good in hair care products. Cute idea to use it on the wrists as a perfume :]
By:Marie, Bronx, New York Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 26-Jun-2009
Rating: I haven't used it yet, but right out of the bottle it smells like a winner :)
Rating: Very nice, crisp citrus notes of grapefruit.
By:Marilyn, Newmarket, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
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: 09-Nov-2005
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: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: I can not say enough about this Fragrance! It smells exactly like the Ocean Spray Ruby Red Grapefruit Juice I love to drink. No chemical scent in the background either. I cant wait to try it in some products I'm formulating! Would be awesome if you could bring us a flavor oil like this as well guys! Great Job!
By:Mechelle, Gastonia, North Carolina Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 13-Jun-2009
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.
By:Sandra, Smoky Lake, Alberta Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Very strong, so you don't need to use a whole lot...I'll say it again, this smells more true than some Grapefruit EOs I've picked up before. This is amazingly sparkly smelling, fresh, sweet with the right amount of zest, and citrus tones. Scent really lingers too.
By:Karina, Richmond Hill, New York Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 14-Sep-2007
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: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: This is truly the scent of a grapefruit being sliced open right under your nose. Even better that grapefruit esseential oil. This is amazing. EXCELLENT. Extremely well done. STRONG!!!
By:Lynda, Birmingham, Alabama Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 08-Dec-2008
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-Nov-2005
Rating: Believe it or not, this FO smells more like a true grapefruit than the Grapefruit EO I tried with my last order. Very sparkly, sweet, and citrusy---will definately be back for more! Thanks NDA for a wonderful new scent--this one's a keeper!!
By:Karina, Richmond Hill, New York Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 14-Sep-2007
Rating: Smells just like pink grapefruit EO
but way cheaper
definatly a good substitute
By:Stephanie, London, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
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: 09-Nov-2005
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: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Jennifer: Well said!!! I agree with you 100%!!!! It's so weird, but this fragrant oil smells more like grapefruit than GRAPEFRUIT essential oil!! It smells like freshly squeezed grapefruit juice. I am in love with this scent! Thank you, New Directions!
By:Brenda, North Bergen, New Jersey
Date: Loyal Customer Since: 03-Oct-2007
Rating: I can't believe I would even say this, but I think it smells more like grapefruit than the EO! I know--outrageous claim! But, it's my personal opinion. This is such a juicy sweet bitter smell! Beautiful job ND!
