Description 

Just in time for fall, we've brought back Bay Rum, revised from our original 1998 Bay Rum to follow new usage rate guidelines. The quintessential cologne aftershave lotion scent, this fragrance is all about exotic spices - Allspice, Capers, Cloves, Nutmeg and mix with Crushed Orange, Crisp Pine Needles and just a touch of Patchouli and Vanilla to add a deep base note for staying powder. The fragrance does discolor a tan so do a small test batch before deciding on your coloring options. Because of the Clove notes, it may accelerate trace in your batch. As always, we urge a small test batch if this fragrance is new to you. 

Vanilla Content: .1%

Hi Marie! I'm sorry this fragrance wasn't your favorite. Because of the clove notes, it can accelerate in cold process soap. To help slow this down, take 1 oz. (basically equal amounts of fragrance oil to fixed oil) liquid oil out of your recipe and heat it up to 100 degrees. Then, add your fragrance into this oil. This simply dilutes the fragrance oil’s initial acceleration. You can also add the oil/fragrance mixture earlier than usual. Rather than adding the fragrance at a thick trace, you can add it at the first sign of thin trace. Always hand stir the fragrance/oil mixture in with a fork/ladle and never, ever use a hand blender for problem oils. Lastly, raise your temperatures to about 110 to 115 degrees. This will help to keep your mixture more liquid than at a lower temperature. I'll be emailing you personally to discuss this issue!

Very strong, use sparingly
After curing for 2 months the scent only smells like straight bay leaves. I really dont like it and noone will buy the soap from me either. Update: I till do not like this scent but I believe where I came into my problem was I did not follow BB's fragrance calculator. Opps! Maybe adding less fo would have made the scent less overpowering. Reply from Bramble Berry Hi Hilary! I'm sorry that this fragrance was not your favorite. If you are looking for something to mix it with in the future, this fragrance mixes well with spicier fragrances such as the Arabian Spice Fragrance Oil, or something slightly sweeter like the Sandalwood Vanilla Fragrance Oil.

not happy
I tried in hot processed soap and it has a funny chemical smell. I am new to soap making and have had two failures with their spice oils. I am not sure I will try it again. I have had great success with the energy and cherry almond.

Hi Connie! I'm sorry to hear that this fragrance oil was not your favorite. If you are looking for other options for spicy scents, you may like the Arabian Spice Fragrance Oil, or the Zanzibar Fragrance Oil.

Bay Rum
This smells exactly like I want Bay Rum to smell, but it's light in the final product. I used 1 oz ppo in CP and it's barely there in the cured soap. However, haven't tried it in B&B products, but this smells just like my hubby's Bay Rum original aftershave. I don't care for the smell of other Bay Rums from other vendors.

Hi Kerrie, I’m happy to hear you enjoy this scent! Our usage rates for fragrances are based on the total weight of the soap, instead of parts per oil. Generally, we recommend a usage rate of .7 ounces of fragrance per pound of cold process soap. If you prefer a stronger scent, I would recommend 1 ounce per pound of cold process soap.

Very disappointed.
I made this previously and it was a huge hit. Ordered a large bottle from BB and it smells like the wrong scent altogether. Not sure what I got but it certainly doesn't smell like the Bay Rum I've made in the past. I won't use this scent and will go back to other supplier for this one. Love BB products and hate going anywhere else but this one just didn't hit the mark.

Hi Melissa! I'm sorry to hear that this fragrance did not meet your expectations. If you are looking for other options, I would recommend our Pumpkin Lager Fragrance Oilor theOatmeal Stout Fragrance Oil.
