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.

Reply from Bramble Berry 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.
Reply from Bramble Berry 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.
