Leather: After numerous customer requests, we finally found the perfect leather fragrance. It smells like a deep and musky, black suede leather jacket- perfect a manly man. The refined leather aroma is evened out with Lemon and Mandarin zest with base notes of patchouli and frankincense. This is a great fragrance for cold process soap. This fragrance smells strongly in the bottle, but it does mellow in soap – give it a try!

Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Natalie! I'm sorry you didn't like this fragrance and had troubles soaping with it. We love the Leather Fragrance Oil and found it to be a true "leather jacket" type scent. RIFM safety rules have prohibited the best smelling chemical for a true leather so in order to ensure full safety for our customers, our leather fragrance is more of that jacket scent than boot or saddle leather. If you do get a boot leather fragrance be sure to request a full IFRA/RIFM skin safety data sheet, especially for categories 5 and 9. We found it to behave beautifully in cold process soap as well as seen in our Man Soap with Tamanu Oil tutorial. While ricing is usually caused by the fragrance, it can be a temperature problem and, of course, stick blending the bumps out will always result in an extremely thick trace. To learn more about ricing/seizure check out our Soapy Mess-Up Quick Guide.
