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 little time!

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.

Nice Fragrance, but...
I soaped with this two weeks ago. I used 4 oz to scent approx 5lbs of my cp soap batter. I planned for the brown discoloration as part of my design. I should have known better than to try a new FO as part of such a large batch (7.5 lbs total.) I was hoping for the dark brown color pictured with the description, but instead my soap is a rusty golden color only along the edges and stubbornly refuses to discolor dark brown. Some of the bars have a few dark flecks's ugly :( Does anyone know if this FO was recently reformulated and no longer discolors? I'm just wondering if it will eventually turn? On the up side, the actual coffee fragrance smells great. I agree with other reviewers that it gets better as your soap sits. Thanks!

Hi April! I'm so glad you like this scent! It should continue to darken as it sits. I'll be emailing you personally to discuss this!

weak scent
The first time I bought this scent it was so wonderful !! I then bought more after it was back ordered . It was not the same it had a much weaker scent than the first bottle ordered . I am a little disappointed with it. It just didn't have that rich espresso scent I loved in the first one. Wondering if this has happened before.

Hi Melissa! I'm sorry this scent wasn't your favorite. It has not been reformulated recently, so I'm not sure why the scent smells different to you! In our tests and recipes, this smell lasts in soap, as seen in this Espresso Shot Cold Process Tutorial. You can add up to .8 oz. of fragrance per pound of cold process soap for a strong scent. You can use our Fragrance Calculator to find out exactly how much to use for your recipe. I'll be emailing you personally to talk more!

Amazing scent! (Cold process)
Smells just like a coffee bean! Amazing scent and wonderful in CP. I never realized how nice the smell of coffee would be on the shower until I tried it. Hello day! This performed wonderfully on CP and CPOP. No acceleration or ricing noticed. I did add actual coffee to a few of the recipes and one without coffee, all were fantastic. Great for sink soap to get the garlic smells off, great for an extra wake-up call in the morning shower.

I paired this 50/50 with the Turkish Mocha FO sold from BB also. It is heavenly! Every time I walk by the curing rack, I grab a bar and take a big whiff. It's just so good. I used a different coffee fragrance last year and this is 10 times better! Discolored to a dark chocolate. I left a little soap unscented and added TD, made a beautiful swirl. No acceleration on this. Just pure yummy smelling. I have no doubt this will sell out this winter. Oddly enough, I really disliked it out of the bottle. Had a burned coffee smell, after soaping though, so so good.

This is an amazing fragrance oil! I was happy with the scent out of the bottle, but blown away after putting it in CP soap. After 1 week of curing it has changed a bit and become more complicated. All of a sudden notes of caramel and sweetness are there, but they aren't overpowering the smell of good strong coffee. I'm very impressed. Please don't ever change this fragrance!
