In CP - Scent fades noticeably but is nice
I tried the exotic fruit smoothie fragrance in cold process soap - a peacock swirl with neon colors. I didn't experience seizing, separation, ricing or applesauce result. I got into a thick a trace by the time I was done, I was working with four colors in a slab mold, so I can't say if it was accelerated by the scent or just a product of taking a short bit of time to pour the colors, although i think I worked pretty fast. Anything with grapefruit scent seems to accelerate a bit. I put the scrapings of the "batter" into freezer paper and insulated it, so I wouldn't waste, and couldn't wait to use try it. After a two weeks, I used the it and loved the fragrance. I made the batch 5 weeks ago and revisited the bars today. There has been significant fading but I still like the scent and, since I already ordered it in larger volume, will try it again with increased amount in the recipe. I love the scent - just wish it had better retention. A little costly for how it performs.

Hi Jeremy! Thanks for taking the time to leave a review. If you found that this fragrance faded more than you would have liked, I would recommend using slightly more next time :). The general usage rate for fragrance oils is .7 ounces of fragrance per pound of soap, but you can certainly use more!

Fades in cold process soap :(
I didn't have the applesauce issues that others described - in fact, I was able to do a very nice zebra stripe swirl, though the soap did thicken on me. However, after a 6 week cure, I can't smell ANYTHING! I am so disappointed! I had my husband smell it just in case being around fragrance oils all the time has desensitized my nose, and he said that all he could smell was soap! I then took a bar in the shower with me to see if the water might help "reactivate" the scent, but still nothing :(. I'm sure this fragrance oil would be awesome in sugar scrubs, lotions, candles, etc...but it just did not stick in cold process soap, and I used the brambleberry fragrance calculator and used enough for the "strong" calculation (I think it was around 3.2 oz of fo for 51 oz of soap).

APPLE SAUCE & OIL SEPARATION
Such a huge disappointment! I bought this before the last 3 reviews and didn't check for new reviews before soaping with it - my bad. It definitely turned to apple sauce and the fragrance oils separated out from it...I've got a big mess on my hands. I will not buy this again. Extremely disappointed that this was not in the description - especially when it sounds like it's happening to everyone! I am so thankful that people leave reviews - it really helps - when I read them first!!!

Hi Sly! I'm sorry to hear that this fragrance oil has misbehaved for you. I have been able to help previous soapers find out why this fragrance oil separated, and would love to help you as well! Please look out for my email.

Smells Great...buuuuut
The fragrance is wonderful. Didn't really mind soap turning pale yellow since it's going to be an Easter soap. However, the soap got really, really thick quickly and as the others said, turned like an applesauce texture. I'm almost afraid to cut the soap. I love the fragance, but wished I had read all these other reviews. I won't make CP soap from it again. Very disappointed.

Hi Kimberly! I’m sorry to hear that this fragrance misbehaved for you. In our tests, we did experience some mild acceleration, but we have never experienced ricing or seizing. I will be emailing you personally to try and find out why this may have happened to your batch!

Do Not use in cold process soap!
This fragrance smells great, but my soap turned to an applesauce texture, same as another reviewer. Too bad I bought and used it before I saw that review! It did not accelerate at all, the soap batter got thinner and completely separated. And yes, looked just like applesauce. I stick blended it on and off for over 10 minutes. This was after it had already reached trace. I couldn't get it to go back together no matter what I did. A big waste of a five pound batch of soap!!

Hi LuAnn! I'm sorry to hear that this fragrance misbehaved for you! I will be emailing you personally to help troubleshoot why this may have happened. If your soap is not lye heavy, you can always make rebatch soap with it, that way you are not throwing out any soap! You may find this Soap Queen TV video on How To Make Rebatch Soap helpful!
