Nice, but needs a bit more depth
First, I would like to say, I wish I could give this 3.5 stars because it's so close to being a great scent! OOB this FO has an almost overwhelming zesty lemon scent, not bad, just not the scent I expected. I decided to try it in a small batch of lotion. The citrus notes did settle a bit once the lotion was bottled and had cooled. I feel like all this FO needs to be a 5 star scent is more of the wood tones, or just a deeper base note to round it out. It seems to be all top and middle notes without the deep notes you would expect to find in a masculine scent. I found an FO called Dirt (it literally smells like fresh, wet dirt that a real bonsai tree would be planted in :D). I'm really looking forward to trying it with this scent. I'm also going to try it in some M&P soap this time too. I'll let you know my findings!

Hi there! I'm sorry to hear that this fragrance was not your favorite. If you are looking to mix with the another to give it more depth, you may enjoy our Tobacco & Bay Leaf Fragrance Oil, or the Cedar and Saffron Fragrance Oil!

Love this!
Strong, lasting scent. Both men and women have liked this scent in CP soap. A teenage son of a friend of mine told me to rename it "Chick magnet" after the girls at school kept asking what cologne he was wearing.

My Husband is now a Soap Convert
When I started soaping my husband was very sceptical and would not give up his Dial soap for anything. That is until I made a batch of Bonsai. He absolutely loves it, and wont use anything else now! I love using this fragrance. It stick amazingly in CP and you dont need to use a whole lot. And I have women friends who love it too! It is definitely a best seller.

Everyone's reaction (including my own) was that this smells like generic soap. Irish Spring or Zest, to be exact. Maybe the worst compliment a Soaper can receive! So, a huge let down. The floral/citrus comes across as artificial and any wood/pine notes are lost in that floral miasma.

Hi Jared, if you are finding this isn't your favorite scent, there are a few you might like better. Fragrances such as Fresh Bamboo or Fir Needlehave similar notes and may be a nice alternative.

Zestfully Clean
To my nose, this smells exactly like Zest soap. Not what I was looking for at all. The product description did not lead to me believe I was ordering anything like this. Nuts! I really wanted something that smelled like the description.

Hello Krispen! If you are finding that the Bonsai Fragrance Oil isn't what you were expecting, you can also try some of our other fragrances that have similar notes like our Fresh Bamboo, Marrakesh and Wasabi Fragrance Oils.
