I can’t help it, I have to give this one only 4 stars, due to the fact that this one can misbehave. YES, it smells AMAZING, and it holds it’s scent through the cure, and soaps beautifully, and looks just fine in the soap, as long as it’s not combined with activated charcoal! I was unaware of this, didn’t test it, and used it in a very elaborate design, the very first time I worked with it. Knowing it was going to discolor, due to the 12% vanillin in it, I added it only to my black color, which was most of the bar anyways, but, the end product, I was very careful which bars I sold, and which ones I decided to just keep. When combined with the activated charcoal, during the soaping, it accelerated very quickly, and in the end product, actually caused the bars to crack, where you could see through the bar it’s self, and looked very different than the rest of the bar. My second go around with this one, I just let it “do it’s thang” – and never even added activated charcoal to this new bar, and it soaped just fine. It does have a wonderful scent. And many loved the scent, so it sells well. Just be fair warned to not add this FO into / with activated chaorcoal, or you might be unhappy in the end. All that being said, I would still buy this again. It smells really great, and holds it’s scent just fine through the cure.

I used this fragrance for the 1st time making CP soap. I was hoping for the best seeing how there was only one review. I saw the high vanillin content (I figured it would discolor a bit but not change colors) so I was a bit wary but wanted to try based on the description. Wish I had passed this one by. Yes it does smell good but it does accelerate. I brought the soap to emulsion and poured out 4 containers of soap leaving the majority for an uncolored base. I mixed in the colors and then poured off one 1oz container to test the fragrance. I only added a small amount and it quickly went from very fluid to a light trace. I knew I would have to hurry if I was going to get a decent HS. I added small amounts of this fragrances to each container including the uncolored base. It was then I noticed the color change to the base, it went from neutral to a light yellow. While this fragrances is not the feared soap on a stick, you need to be quick. If I had of done an ITPS or one color I think it would have been fine. I tried to get everything in the mold as quick as possible but on the second pour the soap was at a pudding consistency and getting thicker by the second. One of the 4 colors was white which also took on a yellowish tone. I tried to pass my hanger tool thru the soap but the hanger tool hit a snag when it got down to the first layer I had poured of the colored soap. I could feel the drag on the hanger tool now that some time had passed getting everything poured and in the mold ready for the swirl.. Not sure what the final result will be but the frustration of dealing with a fragrance that accelerates and discolors (changes color as well), to a greater degree than what was advertised is painful. It cost me time, and money and work. I hate to write bad reviews but I wish someone who has used this fragrance with similar issues as mine had posted something, now it’s buyer beware I have sounded the warning.
I soaped at 90F, lye ratio of 34%, using a sat to unsat ratio of 43/57. This was my standard Hanger swirl recipe w/lard for greater working time..
