Description 

Moroccan Fig - This great smelling fig fragrance smells like a freshly picked fig. The scent is exotic and mysterious while maintaining just the right mix of ripeness and zest.

It does accelerate trace in cold process soap but we think it's worth the extra trouble!

Usage notes from CK in Oregon:I have CP'ed Moroccan Fig twice now (at 1%), and it accelerates trace, but not unworkable. The first batch nearly seized, until I figured out how to soap with it. It also morphs Cellini blue mica to a HOT pink.

The second batch, I added it at a light trace, mixed it quickly by HAND then poured it quickly. I did a swirl, but removed a portion prior to adding FO that I colored with a burgundy oxide. Turned out gorgeous. We think it's worth the extra engineering though, as it smells heavenly in the finished CP soap. And the fragrance doesn't fade.

Basic recipe used in both batches: 7.5 % Castor, 37.50% Coconut & Olive & 17.5% Palm at 5% superfat

NOTE: This medium-flashpoint oil (182ºF)  cannot ship via USPS regardless of the shipping method you choose at checkout.

Workable with planning.
Because of the reviews I decided to use a slab mold and decorate the top. l did split my batter in half using morrocan fig in half and yuzu in the 2nd half. The fragrances work well together. The fig did thicken pretty quickly. Not too bad though. Spooned the fig 1\2 into the mold then poured in the yuzu 1\2. Used full amount of liquid. Love the final result. The fragrance seems to get better the longer it sits. Definitely worth the planning.

Moroccan Fig fo
Holy Cow does this fo accelerate quickly. I used 100 degree oils and lye/water at 100 degrees and I had a nice trace going on and I turned around for a second and low and behold - it completely solidified in my bowl. I had to scoop it out into my mold and squish to down into the mold using gloves. When I unmold in 2-3 days and cut it into bars, I expect to see 'swiss cheese' soap. Still good but this has never happened to me in 11 years. Next time I will read the instructions from BB and use cooler oils and a lye solution.

HOLY ACCELERATION BATMAN !!!
So I soaped with this fragrance and I did it at a little over 1%. Wow when you said it moves fast I thought I was prepared, but not for the warp speed that mine did. Though I think the Cocoa Butter helped with how fast it moved. No matter.. I plopped it as fast as I could and WOW the scent is so fresh and clean. I really like this. I will be soaping with it again... just think I will do it without all the Coco Butter. As far as scent goes it gets a 5... with how fast it can move I had to bring the 5 down to a 4... But like I said I will be soaping with it again.

Hi Melanie! I'm happy that you enjoyed this scent! Since this fragrance is known to accelerate, I recommend using a recipe that consists mostly of liquid oils, as well as soaping colder. I would also keep this mind when planning your design, and choose something on the simple side :)

Doesn't fit description
This was my first online order of FO's and I ordered the fig based on the description and user reviews. I was very disappointed with the scent OOB. It is overly sweet, cloying and too floral. I originally bought it for lotion but decided to try CP soap instead in hopes it would tone down the scent some. Now I have 3lbs of nasty smelling soap and no one I've asked, likes this scent. A complete waste of money.

Hi Gail! We are so sorry to hear that this wasn't one of your favorite fragrances. If you are finding that it isn't selling your soap, you can always use the rebatch method and add an extra fragrance to help it blend a bit better. Some of our favorites to blend with are Moroccan Mint and Vanilla Select. Be sure to check out the Teach Soap Forums to talk to other soapers about their favorite blends for this scent!

True and clean
This is a very accurate fig smell; not too strong. I use it in making perfumes.
