Same Problem as Sabrina
It is not easy for me to give an average rating to a scent I could smell out of the bottle all day! I recently ordered about ten fragrances, and this this first one I used because I was so excited about it. I tried it in a recipe for a CP salt bar soap that is tried and true. I read about the quick acceleration and took that into consideration. I easily got it into the mold before it got too thick and it looked beautiful. I didn't insulate it, but within a couple of hours, a 3-inch crack had formed on top and after a week, the soap smell seems to be fading daily. I used the highest suggestion for fragrance on the brambleberry fragrance chart. Because I love this scent so much and I still have about 3 oz left, I may try it again in another recipe, but each time I smell my soap, I am sad. Until I smell my Sleigh Bells fragrance bottle, and then I am happy again!

Hi Kristin! I'm glad you love the smell of our Kentish Rain Fragrance Oil! We do too! Though, I'm sorry you had troubles working with it in your cold process soap. It sounds like your soap got too hot even without the insulation, which is what caused the crack. Sometimes in gel phase your soap can get super hot and burn off part of the fragrance which may be why you're noticing some fading. To learn more about this check out our How to Prevent Scent Fading in Soap blog post.

Very pleasant
I haven't tried it in CP, but this fragrance works like a dream in M&P. My husband (who is uber-picky) absolutely loves the scent. Very pleasant.

FO Veins
Oils were 91 F. Brought to thin trace. Then, stirred in superfatting, colorants, and FO with a spatula. Lastly, used stick blender to bring to medium trace. All looked good and was fairly easy to work with. Result: both bottom layer (more FO) and top layer (less FO) has FO veins running throughout.

Hi Yvonne!  I'm so sorry this fragrance oil was giving you problems!  In our tests and recipes the Kentish Rain Fragrance Oil behaved well and did not separate!  It sounds like you may have experienced glycerin rivers, explained in The River Runs Deep: An explanation of glycerin rivers.  I will email you personally to help troubleshoot!

Awesome Fragrance
It has a nice spring-time like fragrance. It does accelerate trace quite a bit. I mixed this with a little pikake flower fragrance and it went from a nice pour to goop in 3 seconds flat. I was still able to mold it.

Hi Steven! I'm so glad you like the fragrance! In our tests and recipes, this fragrance did accelerate in cold process soap. 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. I'll be emailing you personally to discuss this issue!
