Description 

Hot Cocoa Fragrance Oil: If you're a chocolate lover you'd better sit down before smelling this fragrance. It will whisk you away to another place and time. The top note is a nutty almond paired with powdered baking chocolate, creamy milk, powdered sugar and vanilla. It's love at first sniff! Behaves beautifully in cold process soapmaking and discolors to a dark brown.

Liquid Castile Testing Notes: We tested this fragrance in our liquid Castile soap base, we recommend making a small test batch just to be sure you like the results. Mixes into soap well, thickens slightly. Finished soap discolors dark brown, slight thickening.

NOTE: This medium-flashpoint oil (160ºF) cannot ship via USPS regardless of the shipping method you choose at checkout.

Aargh
I thought it smelled ok straight from the bottle, and thought i detected a bit of a rose scent along with the vanilla and chocolate. I used the recommended amount for a medium strength fragrance. My batch was hot process and the smell was way too intense. I thought that by putting my sliced bars in the oven I could burn off some of the fragrance-they smelled a little better but looked worse. Yikes. Will try again with cold process and use a lesser amount of since my hubs seems to like it. Also caught my dog trying to eat the finished product, so be careful!

Hi there! I'm sorry this scent was too intense for you in your hot process soap. If you loved the scent out of bottle I definitely would recommend just cutting back on your usage rate, try going with the "light" recommendation on our Handy Dandy Fragrance Calculator. I will email you personally to discuss this further.

LOVE LOVE LOVE
I absolutely love this fragrance. I colored it with a little dutch cocoa powder and the soap looks and smells just like a chocolate brownie. I made it for friends and family for Christmas, and they can not get enough of it. In fact, they are already asking me when I'm going to make another batch of it for them.

I wanted to love this
I was very excited to receive this FO and although the OOB smell was overwhelming it was pleasant, however that changed when I used to make bath bombs. Once it was mixed into the BB it had a horrible chemical smell, I tried it twice with varying amounts. I will give it another try when my melt and poor soaps arrive. Until then it seems like this will not be on the re-order list.

Hi Ivory! I'm sorry this fragrance wasn't your favorite. Witch Hazel can have an unpleasant smell at first, but it will fade away in the finished bath bombs. I'll be emailing you personally to help troubleshoot!

Don't judge an FO by its OOB!
OOB this scent was completely overwhelming to me - could not stand it! I finally did a custom batch of it in Beer CP at 0.5 ppo (perfectly behaved!), and it is beautiful! I still dont like it in lotions, but something magical happens while it cures and results in a rich chocolatey smell. I've since come back for the big bottles!

Strong hot chocolate
I did a test batch using the 1 oz. sample in about 1400 g. of oils. Wow, it is ever strong, at least at first. One the second day after cutting, I had to put it outside during the day because the smell was so strong. The soap didn't discolor to brown until 2 days after cutting - and it seemed to make the umber brown mica I used as a colorant morph toward gray. It didn't seem to accelerate trace or cause problems, but I'd say you really have to love the smell of hot chocolate to use this one.
