Herbal Essence (type): This fragrance is a duplication of the original Clairol Herbal Essence's shampoo and conditioner scent. It's sweet, and full of floral and fruit notes yet despite all those florals, still appealing to both sexes. The blend contains deep woody base notes, and rises to the notes of heather, jasmine and ylang ylang. The top notes include lime, grapefruit and bergamot. Overall, it's a juicy fruity floral sensation that just begs to be used! May accelerate trace.

This fragrance is phthalate free.

Don't rely on out of the bottle fragrance
I must admit, that straight from the bottle, I had my doubts about this fragrance. Immediately after HP with this fragrance, I still had my doubts. I even put the curing soap in a spare bedroom, with the door closed. :) After the soap began to cure, subtle changes began with the fragrance. It was becoming more rounded and kind of 'bloomed'...excuse the pun. Now that the soap has totally cured, I find the "Herbal Essence" FO very pleasing. I do believe though, that the next time I use it...I will use a bit less. Very nice fragrance in the HP soap. I did find that it seemed to accelerate just a tiny bit, but nothing scary or that could not be dealt with.

I made a batch yesterday and when added this FO, as SOON as it hit the batter, little white cottage cheese lumps appeared. I whisked and whisked, the batter did not get extra thick, but there were still these little white chunks in it. The batch is still under wraps and I will update how it comes out. I've never had this happen before. The smell is awesome though.

Hi Heidi! I’m sorry to hear this fragrance did not behave well for you. In our tests, we experienced very slight ricing that was easily blended out. I will be contacting you personally to help you troubleshoot why this may have happened with your batch, so please look for my email :)

Whenever I smell this, it makes me happy. I used it twice to make CP Himalayan pink salt bars. It smells so much like the original. Fresh, clean, crisp and perfect for a spa bar. My soap turned out a beautiful white. One batch was made using lard as an ingredient and the other batch was with no lard. Both came out a beautiful white. I used no colorants. I'm very pleased. Thank you!

Used in CPOP shampoo bar and it performed flawlessly. No acceleration that I noticed and the scent so far has stayed (2 week cure). The scent is fresh and heavenly....I don't want to get out of the shower! :) Will definitely buy again.

I too remember the amazing smell of the original. This is a very good mimic, and when I opened the bottle and took a big sniff I was unexpectedly launched into a memory I didn't even remember I had of my grandmother before she passed. I had forgotten she always used that shampoo when they made it. Thank you for the fond memory and for an excellent scent. That being said I did have to hustle to get this into the mold... but I had prepared seeing the warning in the listing that it might accelerate and so it went fine. I do wish this didn't accelerate because its an awesome scent and I'm going to have to find a way to pretty it up without swirls. Haven't found anyone yet that doesn't like this scent. Love it!
