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!

Great scent, moves fast
I love this scent! It is my favorite manly scent but I will probably not but this one again. I CP soaped low, added the scent to my oils because I knew this would accelerate, but I didnt anticipate how fast this congeals. Im talking a 3 second stick blend then about 20 seconds later its unpardonable. Accelerates slightly is an understatement. Update: I agree with the below BB statement and I will follow their advise, Thank you! Reply from Bramble Berry Hi Hilary! I'm sorry to hear that this fragrance misbehaved for you. I would recommend always using a whisk to incorporate your fragrance oils to prevent acceleration. Because of this, we like to add our colorants first, then fragrances last :) Because this scent is known to accelerate, I also recommend planning your design accordingly

Morphed in my CP soap
I hate to mark down one of my favorite out-of-the-bottle fragrance oils, but I CP soaped at a relatively low temperature (70's), did not water discount at all, and this fragrance oil accelerated and significantly heated up my CP soap. After setting it aside for a couple of hours, I checked on it to discover a 5" soap crack. Easily fixable, I spritzed with rubbing alcohol and used a plastic bag to repair the damage. Still, I think the soap heated up enough to kill part of the scent. Once it settled overnight, the soap took on a morphed fragrance - dark, hollow, and sad - not the wonderfully ozone-rich, earthy, rainy fragrance out of the bottle. I plan on making another batch, but the next one will go immediately in the freezer. I hope to change my updated review to 5 stars as Kentish Rain smells amazing! I just need to get it to remain amazing in my CP soap!

Hi Sabrina! I'm sorry this fragrance wasn't your favorite. It can accelerate cold process soap slightly, but it shouldn't morph! I'll be emailing you personally to help troubleshoot. If you like rainy or salty scents, you may like Salty Mariner Fragrance Oil, Ocean Rain Fragrance Oil, or Sea Moss Fragrance Oil.

Clean and sweet
This fragrance smells exactly like the name. I have used it in CP and HP soap and the scent still remains strong, but not cloying. I have used it in 100% pure soy candles and it's a big seller. It has a wonderful cold and hot throw in my candles. I will continue to order.
