The fragrance remains strong and satisfying in all manner of toiletries, including cold process soap. It is a dark chocolate with a very pervasive undertone of mocha and cocoa. It does discolor to a gorgeous ebony brown.

Accelerates Trace Fast
I loved the smell of this dark chocolate scent, however, it does accelerates fast. Everything was going fine till I added the scent, then my soap turned into mud. I couldn't even pour it into a mold other than to pour it into a load mold.

Hi Carmen! I'm so glad you love the smell of our Dark Rich Chocolate Fragrance Oil. Though, I'm sorry you had troubles working with it. In our tests and recipes we did find this scent to cause mild acceleration, though we did not experience any seizing. 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. If it does start to rice you can try using your stick blender to help smooth the soap out as seen in the Soap Behaving Badly blog post. I will email you personally to help troubleshoot!

Amazing scent but ruined my batch :(
I have to say, I LOVE THIS SCENT. It's delicious! However, I made a batch of CP soap, separated it into two parts to add 2 different scents for a CP cupcake recipe (soap queen shea butter cupcake) and chose dark chocolate for one of the scents. The other scent was fine in one half, however when I added the dark chocolate scent, it totally seized up on me within a few seconds of hand stirring! I have a limited budget since losing my job due to health issues, and this recipe was an expensive loss for me. I can't afford buy oils for some time to make more soap. I can't tell you how devastating this was for me. I absolutely adore the scent though but just beware when using it.......

It smells nice
This smell nice but it do not smell like anything I would call chocolate... Could this have been a labeling error?

Hi Ornanial!  I'm so sorry you didn't find this scent to smell like anything you would call chocolate! We love this rich scent and find it to be very chocolatey as seen in our Sunday Night Spotlight: Dark Rich Chocolate Fragrance Oil. We do pour everything by hand to order so it is possible you may have received the incorrect scent.  I will email you personally to resolve this issue.

Smells like poor quality vanilla
I did a batch of pour and melt goat's milk soap and added cocoa powder which looks great, but no matter what I did, it did not smell like chocolate. I even added the orange truffle lip flavoring (which is great in lip balms and smells very nice and like chocolate). Do additions to the soap like cooca powder or exfoliators steal away the scent?

Hi Lisa!  I'm sorry you did find this fragrance to smell much like chocolate.  We love this rich, creamy scent and find it super chocolatey!  Though, additives like cocoa powder and exfoliants should not steal away the scent.  If you're looking for other chocolate fragrances you may like Hot Cocoa Fragrance Oil, Chocolate Espresso Cybilla Fragrance Oil, or Mint Cocoa Surplus Fragrance Oil. I will email you personally to discuss this further!

Love it for everything!
Used it in several CP soap batches and everything turned out amazing. Even with mica colors, there is no lasting staining. Using this with equal parts english rose and they work amazing together! I even put them in a diffuser and get compliments all day on how I smell!
