Description 

Apricot Freesia: This is a upbeat blend of fruit and floral. If you don't like fruit scents because they're too sweet, try Apricot Freesia. The Freesia really tones down the syrupy notes while the Apricot livens up the Freesia. It's a yummy blend that you'll fall in love with.

Hint for cold process soapers: work with low temperatures and do not gel this fragrance (as it will morph with high heat). The heat burns the fragrance off.

Liquid Castile Testing Notes: We tested this fragrance in our liquid Castile soap base, we recommend making a small test batch just to be sure you like the results. No discoloration, fragrance color is water white. Mixes in easily, does not change consistency of the soap.

This fragrance is phthalate free.

Smells divine!
Right out of the bottle this smells heavenly. I read all the reviews and followed the tips that suggested mixing at lower temps (I soaped at 90 degrees) and then placed the molds into the freezer to help cool them down. The soap seemed a little soft so I let it sit in the molds an extra day. They are now all sitting on the drying rack and they smell absolutely delish. Not too fruity but not too flowery either. I can't help picking one up for a sniff every time I walk by.

It's masculine, too (unexpectedly)
On two separate occasions this week, men sniffed soap made with BB's Apricot Freesia and remarked that it's a "masculine" fragrance. To my nose, this fragrance does not contain the stereotypically masculine coded elements -- musk, herbs, leather, tobacco, ozone, heady spice, etc. Instead, the fragrance is very accurate to the label: apricot and freesia. Floral. Fruit. Yummy. Fresh. Bright. The soap sold well, and the fragrance would also be appropriate in a lotion (which, typically, my male customers are averse to, but maybe this fragrance would win 'em over)

Soap Cool, Use Freezer - Seems To Work
The ticket for CP soap seems to be to soap cool and then immediately put the mold in the freezer. I soaped about 85-90 degrees, did a simple in-the-pot swirl since I didn't want to get too fancy in case it didn't work out. Used the small wooden ELF mold with silicone liner, 25 ounces oils. Plus, I wanted something quick so it could go in the freezer faster. Anyway, I made it first thing in the morning, left it in the freezer all day, took it out before bed and let it thaw all night. Next morning, the scent was still beautiful. The bars haven't fully cured, so I don't know how it will hold up, but I am just happy to have made it this far since the other reviews had me plenty scared. The scent is gorgeous and makes lovely lotion, crossing my fingers that the soap cures well.

Interesting effect in HP
Well so far the fragrance has held up well in HP beer soap…added in after the cook mixed with spring meadows FO and everyone thinks its the best apple smell lol who knew? I will try it w/o adding other fragrance to see how it holds but so far a week later still have good fragrance radiating off the soap.

One of my top selling fragrances !!!
I fell in love with this fragrance from the very beginning. My customers go crazy over this scent. As noted it doesn't hold in CP, will be trying it again at low temps. Love it in Lotion Bars, M&P, Body Butter & just tried it in Soy Candles and Wax Tarts.
