Description  more details

Salty Mariner: This is a fragrance reminiscent of upscale living.  Salty marine notes and fresh rain mingle with lily of the valley, jasmine, leafy greens, pine and musk.  Experience the beautifully mastered essence of the thunder of waves crashing against the shore, the salty air in your face and the soft crunch of seashells beneath your feet. Imagine yourself at sea, with your face being lightly sprinkled with ocean spray. Like an angry sea, this fragrance does have a more powerful side; it accelerate trace in cold process soap so be prepared for it to move quickly.

Worth the Trouble
By now we all know that this FO is a major accelerator with ricing problems. However, it's so phenomenal, that it's totally worth the trouble. Sure, there are ways to discipline this scent to make it behave a little better or you can simply plan a design that "works with quirks." That's pretty much what I do with this one. I soap three layers, one at a time, and I don't swirl, so that when this sucker goes all ricey on me I can use a stick blender without trepidation. Salty Mariner and I have figured each other out and made our relationship work, because customers go INSANE over soap made with this. Many say it smells just like the lobby at the Disney's upscale Yacht Club Resort. I live in Florida, have stayed there on more than one occasion, and have to agree. I actually received this FO upon arrival back home from said resort. My packed suitcase still smelled like the Disney Yacht Club & Salty Mariner was an exact dupe. SWANKalicious!

Another New Favorite!
Salty Mariner is everything I hoped for & more! It is so fresh & clean~truly reminds me of the ocean...I did a layered soap with Natural Indigo pigment on the bottom layer and left the top layer its natural color to resemble waves. It looks & smells so wonderful! I highly recommend this fragrance. It does accelerate trace, but I was prepared and didn't have any problems.

Instant freeze
We used this scent in our first attempt to make a swirl soap. We used the Swirl quick mix and the instant the lye hit the mixture it stopped mixing and was a bear to mix by hand. It immediately turned to... heavy trace and stayed usable for 20 mins till we achieved what we could be happy with. Mixing colors into this combo made my arm so tired and we made 4 colors! Beware, this scent is wonderful if you want a beach scent but save this for a simple recipe of one or 2 colors max!

Hi Steve! In our tests and recipes, this fragrance did accelerate. 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 120 to 125 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 Seller - just be patient!
This is one of our consistent best selling scents. Yes it does accelerate but we've found that if you're patient you can keep whisking through the initial tendency to rice and you'll be fine. Yes, you have to move but we've been able (soaping at room temps) to complete great swirls with both water and goat milk recipes. Completely worth the effort!

Smells great, but......
Very clean, fresh smell. When used in CP soap it immediately riced on me. I was able to stick blend it out, but you still need to move quickly as this fragrance also accelerates trace. Best not to try any complicated swirls or techniques.

Hi Lindsey! I'm sorry this fragrance wasn't your favorite. In our tests and recipes it did accelerate trace. Stick blending will help smooth out the ricing, as seen in the Soap Behaving Badly post. I'll be emailing you personally to talk more!
