Description 

Grapefruit Lily: Light, romantic and airy, this fragrance is a wonderful scent to use with lotion bars or as a perfume. Of course, like all of our fragrances, it's great in soap too! This blend is heavier on the Lily than the biting notes of citrus and makes for an ethereal sensation! This fragrance was inspired by a painting by Dori Spector called "Grapefruit and Gift."

This fragrance contains phthalates.

Accelerates!!!
I received this as a gift from my husband for Christmas, and expected great things, since I love both grapefruit and lilies. The smell OOB is fantastic, and I can't wait to wash with it....BUT this fragrance accelerates a LOT in CP soap. The swirl I had planned ended up as more of a lumpy mess because I didn't read the reviews from others saying this accelerated. In short, this smells absolutely wonderful, but don't plan on doing anything fancy with it.

 Hi Emily!  I'm so glad you love our Grapefruit Lily Fragrance Oil!  Though, I'm sorry it accelerated so much on you.  In our tests and recipes we did find this fragrance resulted in mild acceleration, which is common for floral-type scents.  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 discuss this further.

5 stars for the smell and 2 for CP acceleration
I really like the smell of this one. But I would not call the acceleration in CP soap mild by any stretch of the imagination. It turned to thick lumps immediately. So I would recommend barely mixing your lye solution into your oils before you add the scent and forget coloring with multiple colors. Definitely do not get anywhere near trace before you add the scent. I soaped at 100 degrees and did not use butters. Smells great though. I would like to add to my earlier review that using 57 percent or higher of olive oil in your recipe should solve the acceleration problem as olive oil is extremely slow to trace. I do not normally use quite that high of a percentage of olive oil in my recipes. I will try this scent again as the fragrance is lovely.

Soap
The smell in cured CP soap smells more like a 'soap' smell than a strong floral scent. It is decent, but I'm not getting any strong notes of lily or grapefruit. Maybe I need to try a stronger concentration?

Hi Steven! I'm sorry this scent wasn't your favorite. In cold process soap, you can add .64 oz of fragrance per pound of soap for a strong scent. Also, citrus scents like grapefruit can be lighter in soap. You may like some of these Grapefruit Lily Blends. I'll be emailing you personally to resolve this issue!

Grapefruit Lily
This fragrance has been a standard in my soaping and in my house ever since the first batch I made of it several years ago. It's my husband's favorite fragrance and I found that it sells well to men as well as women...I color and name it differently to appeal to the guys, as some men are turned off by the idea that it's "floral". The clean wonderful scent appeals to everyone and it's one of my best selling soaps. It accelerates in CP a bit, but quite manageable. I've actually swirled a couple of times, but decided that it was just fine as a solid color.
