Find out how much of this scent to use
Fresh Zucchini Flower:This light and refreshing fragrance is inspired by the Cucina Zucchini Flower & Truffle fragrance. With unique notes of Carrot, Fresh Cut Grass and White Amber, this fragrance is light, airy and surprisingly delicate. It's amazing in liquid soaps, lotions and candles. In soap, the notes of Vetiver, Musk and Patchouli help to anchor the scent though it does lose a bit of the sweet Zucchini Flower top notes in cold process soap. Try this fragrance if you're looking for effervescent and spring-like.
This fragrance is phthalate free.

I must admit, I haven't tried this yet, but the comments have me mesmerized. I just watched an episode on Food TV where Chef Anne Marie stuffed zucchini blossoms with cheese etc and fried them. So, I'm thinking that maybe adding some dried zucchini blossoms to the soap might be cool too. I'll try it and let you know.
I wasn't sure what to make of this fragrance OOB, but I couldn't stop sniffing it. I used it in a blend in my CP cucumber soap. The fragrance adds earthy and fresh notes without being overpowering. If you like complex fragrances, give this one a try.
This fragrance gives an odd handshake -- fresh and slightly vegetable, a little bitter in a pleasant way. Others have described it well, and I don't notice much change whether I use it in lotion or CP soap. Friends are often surprised that it's not a completely natural additive, like an essential oil. However, the scent really blooms on your skin. To my nose, the sharp notes disappear and a softer green floral develops. I use it in my own products, and people sometimes grab my hand and sniff. A little weird in the checkout line, but still a compliment!
I am super super surprised with this floral! It smells a little ify OOB, but it just "bloomed" in the soap. It did not accelerate either which is surprising for a floral. I actually had to sit, and wait (I did not mind at all!) for it to reach a medium trace! To sum up my reveiw in one word: LOVE!
I finally found a FO that doesn't accelerate trace!!! And it doesn't discolor either!!!
But just a word of warning to other CP soapers, If you need a batter that is thicker, than add your colors first then once you reach the consistency that you want, then add FO. I think this is the first time I've ever had a FO that actually pretty much stopped trace. This would be prefect for swirls, but I was trying to layer,,,,,,,well, I tried to layer! Ha!!
I will get some more for a spring peacock swirl.
OH, I was doing the Avocado Moisturizing Bar.
