Espresso Fragrance Oil: This comforting and familiar scent smells just like that good ol' cup a Joe. The fragrance entices the senses with opening notes of bitter-sweet chocolate, coconut, and almond. Middle notes of honey and caramel while finishing off with notes of roasted coffee bean and burnt sugar. This fragrance is a great addition to any coffee themed project. Espresso fragrance is more of a traditional coffee scent when compared with our more chocolate-like coffee fragrance Turkish Mocha. To add an extra level of coffee goodness to your products check out our luxurious coffee butter!
This fragrance smells best after it has 'aged' and been exposed to air, whether that is curing in a bar of soap or just being left out. Over time it becomes deeper and sweeter. So if you don't love it at first sniff, give it a week and try again!
Performance In Cold Process Soap: This fragrance does not accelerate but does discolor to a medium brown color in cold process soap. It holds up very nicely.

Though, if you're using this fragrance in cold process soap it does not need to be aged as the reaction with the lye will blow off the burnt smell and leave you with only wonderful roasted coffee beans, as demonstrated in our Espresso Shot Cold Process Tutorial. I will email you personally to discuss this further.

During this cleanse, Patti discovered lacto-fermentation of vegetables. This discovery soon developed into a hobby, which has now turned into a […]
