Find out how much of this scent to use
Chipotle Caramel Fragrance Oil: After Lela from Bella Lucce got Anne-Marie (Bramble Berry's CEO) hooked on Good Karmal’s Chipotle Caramel candy, we set about recreating the spicy sweet fragrance that made our mouths water and our hands shake. This fragrance has been tested in CP soap and while it loses some of its sweeter buttery notes, it’s still delightful. Sweet, creamy caramel is blended with supporting notes of vanilla and nut for a traditional caramel base and then livened up with heavy doses of chipotle, cinnamon, clove and a surprising note of pimento. Because of the vanilla, this fragrance does discolor to brown and we think it’s worth it.
Vanilla Content: 3%

To begin with, this is not a "Chipotle" scent, this is Cinnamon Spiced Caramel. It's a wonderful scent, don't get me wrong but it's no where near Chipotle. Secondly, this is not suitable for CP because the caramel scent does not carry through at all. I processed this as CP and put it in the freezer to avoid any overheating or gel so that the caramel scent might stick better. The only scent that remained after processing, cutting and curing for 2 weeks was Cinnamon. I have 2 loafs of lightly scented Cinnamon soap that I will try to rebatch into something decent. It is a fantastic scent in lotions and a little goes a long way...you almost want to lick your fingers after applying it BUT I wish they would remove this FO for CP. I rarely do "Poor" reviews but unfortunately this one called for it.
I adore this scent, and so do my customers. I make a cold process soap with this mixed with Rich Dark Chocolate and it's popular but even more popular is bath truffles. I tried this out with some bath truffles and the whole batch sold out in the fist half of the market. Made it again the next time wondering if it would have results as good and I sold out again. It's especially popular with the ladies. I love it myself, buttery and smooth with that little bite to keep it from being to sweet. Perfection!
My favorite fragrance oil!! I love the hint of spice. Ive used it in bath bombs and mp soaps. Its nice and strong, you dont need to add as much as you do with other fragrances. I can smell the soaps through the wrapping and the bath bombs when i walk by the jar. And it lasts a long time! No fake chemically smells here, it smells wonderful :)
I had a fragrance that I wasn't wild about, but thought it would be great in a blend, and thought this FO sounded like it would do the trick. Out of the bottle, woah! Super buttery and candy caramel smelling. I was banking on BrambleBerry's description that the buttery richness is at least somewhat lost in CP soap, and it was spot on. The buttery sweetness is gone and it's more spicy now. More smokey. I'd say don't be scared of the out of bottle scent, it definitely develops better (better that is, if you don't like the OOB scent) in the CP soap.
OK, so yes, out of the bottle it smells strongly of caramel and you don't really pick up much of the spiciness in the scent. But oh my word...add it to a bath bomb recipe, and it almost does the reverse. I don't know why. As soon as I mixed it in, I could immediately smell the clove and cinnamon and it is AMAZING. The tiniest amount (1/4 tsp) has filled my entire house with the smell of chipotle caramel. I normally don't like "food scents" but this is so wonderful. I love it.
