Find out how much of this scent to use
Pinot Grigio - This fragrance was a winner of the 2011 SOAP Panel for Fall. It is ideal for wine based soaps and products though stands on its own rather nicely. The main notes to make up this fruity wine scent are sparkling bergamot, peach nectar, apple, Italian white grape, black plum, violet rounding out with supporting notes of warm clove bud. It smells like a very adult, fruity floral grape juice. This scent softens a bit in cold process soap and goes a warm yellow.

Beautiful scent. I would not have called this scent "Pinot Grigio", but that is neither here nor there. This is a fantastic scent and has stayed nicely in CP Soap. My husband even enjoys the soap, and has stated that it is "not too feminine for a man's man to use". Nonetheless, high-five BrambleBerry :)
...and LUV it! I can't explain the scent, but I use it my wine and roses soap and customers have flocked to it!
I live in a wine-industry community, and I was nervous about using this FO in a wine soap. There are some very selective noses around here! In any case, people just love this CP soap. They pick it up over and over (sniff, sniff, sniff) before buying. It does have a very prominent grape note, but it's softened with musk and florals. To offset the yellowing effect, I used very cool pink and red micas; the soap turned dark burgundy.
Every so often I run into a FO I dislike. This would be one of them. Please note, that this review is only my opinion. Everyone smells things differently:
You know that scent you find in a public bathroom. It could be the cleanser they use, or it could be the deodorizer. But that is the first thing you smell. It also smells a little old lady-ish. Then behind all of that is this smell that reminds me of mild smelling regurgitation and stale alcohol. It is REALLY unpleasant IMHO!
BB, please start selling FO's in the little sample vials individually. I bought this for nearly 6 dollars and absolutely hate it and can't get a refund for it. I know that for any business, one primary objective is to make a profit, but you have a lot of loyal customers, myself included!

Hi Desiree! I’m sorry that this fragrance oil was not your favorite. You do have some awesome blending options though! I find that this fragrance blends well with other fruity scents, like the
Blackberry Cybilla Fragrance Oil, or the AppleJack Peel Fragrance Oil! In the future, you can always request sniffy samples of a fragrance! You can read more about them
I like the scent (though I don't think it really smells that much like Pinot Grigio). It worked well with a small amount of yellow oxide as I sell this scent (among the other wine scents) at a local winery. This scent is a big hit!
