Description 

Bordeaux Blend – This fragrance is designed to be a big, bold spicy red wine fragrance. With notes of tawny port and cognac being sweetened up with lighter softer pinot noir, vanilla and raspberry, Bordeaux Blend is toughened up with spicy notes of cinnamon, clove and vineyard dirt. This fragrance can move quickly in CP soap so be prepared and after a full cure, the spice notes come out more than the grape notes.

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. Becomes cloudy while mixing. Discolors to light yellow, opaque.

Flashpoint: 200ºF +

CP Soap
Fragrance has a wonderful bouquet like walking through a fine wine shop. Accelerated slightly, but not enough to hinder my design in CP soap. I have reordered several times because it is a hot item in my store.

More Like Grape Kool-Aid
While I didn't expect this to have a true wine scent, I certainly didn't expect it to smell like concentrated grape Kool-Aid. I gave it the benefit of the doubt, but four weeks into a cure it still reeks of artificial grape scent. My husband compared it to children's cough syrup.

Hi Ariella! I'm so sorry you didn't like this scent. We love the fruity notes in contrast to the spicy cinnamon and cloves!  We choose all of our fragrance oils based on six weeks of cure time and the spice notes definitely come out more than the grape notes you're smelling after a full cure.  If you're looking for a sharper scent you might like Red Wine (Candle & Soap) Fragrance Oil, Pinot Grigio Fragrance Oil, or Champagne Fragrance Oil.

The jury is still out.
Let me preface this by saying I'm new to soap. But I have to say that I don't think this resembles or evokes red wine at all. I used this in my M&P, and was hit with a wall of artificial grape/home-perm-chemical/disinfectant smell. I had even added some ground cloves just to try to take the edge off, to no avail. A few days later, it has mellowed to somewhat resemble Grape Hi-C. I gave some soap to a nice friend who said it reminded her of [famous candle company's] Mulberry, which she likes. I'm using it for myself, and finding it still a bit hard to take. Does this mellow considerably after weeks and weeks? (The problem is that I made these for Valentine's Day, which is five days away) Here's hoping! On the plus side, it was very easy to use. The whole process was, indeed, simple enough for a grade-schooler with supervision. If you like very fruity scents, and don't have to smell it for days on end, you might like this. It's very strong, so you don't have to use much!

Hi Thora! I'm sorry this fragrance wasn't your favorite.  We love the sweet notes of raspberry and vanilla contrasted by nice spicy base notes in the Bordeaux Blend Fragrance Oil! The Bordeaux has strong scent in melt and pour soap with just .44 oz of fragrance per pound of soap, found using our handy dandy Fragrance Calculator. I will email you personally to discuss this further.

smells wonderful
I really like this scent and it sells well at our local winery - I have some work to do trying to color it correctly -but the scent is to die for!

Beautiful, Fruity Scent
I made this using a bottle of Pinot Noir with lots of great skin loving oils as a wedding gift. I expected her to go crazy for it (which she did) but he's the one that can't get enough! It was overly fruity at first which worried me but cured to a nice, soft scent. The wine made it a gorgeous burgundy color so I didn't have to worry about adding extra colorants. It moved a little quickly but since I didn't plan any complicated design, it wasn't a problem. I'm sure I'll be making another batch for their 1st wedding anniversary:) Great fragrance, BB!
