Description 

Kumquat: We set out a loaf of Kumquat Soap at Otion and out of the 15 logs of soap set out, the Kumquat universally elicited "Wows!" and "I want this!". Kumquat is along the lines of pomegranate - bright, fresh, purple with notes of green. It performs admirably in cold process soap and is divine in lotions. Kumquat is considered one of the hot new trends for 2008 so you'll be seeing this fragrance (along with other purples like pomegranate, mangosteen and acai berry) showing up in bodycare and fine perfumes.

NOTE: This medium-flashpoint oil (168ºF) cannot ship via USPS regardless of the shipping method you choose at checkout. 

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. Mixed into soap easily. Final soap was almost perfect with just a hint of yellow.

Please note that this fragrance oil was reformulated October 2011 to meet new RIFM standards.

One of my favorites
I've used this oil in my cold process soap and I absolutely love it! Can't keep enough made, one of my best sellers! So clean and fresh!

Bright!
I think this is a really, really excellent fragrance, but I sort of wonder if it will be even better in blends. Its fresh and very, very sweet. I may mix it with a little Meyer Lemon. Mine discolored to a very light peachy color, and since I'd swirled it with light orange that turned out to be an amazing blend. Didn't accelerate trace at all. This will be part of my soaping kit in the future. :)

Beautiful orange scent
I purchased this FO based on its overwhelmingly positive reviews and was not disappointed. As others have mentioned, the scent is very clean and not at all cloying. Although I like it on its own, it's even better mixed half-and-half with lemongrass essential oil. This FO behaved very well for me and did not accelerate trace.

Wonderfully fresh!
I have used this in my lotions and other products and I really like it a lot. It always smells fresh and clean kind of sweet but I like that. My customers have all just loved this scent and every time I use it in a product it sells out fast. I will definitely be buying this again!

LOVE IT!
This is one of my new favorite BB scents!! Its a true orange scent, delightful with NO chemical like orange smell. Slight acceleration, nothing you can't work around, especially if you whisk in the fragrance and be ready to move. I still got a nice dream catcher funnel pour soap out of it and am thrilled. We'll see how it sticks.
