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.

Flashpoint: 200ºF +

Great scent but overall disappointed in BB
I just received my first order with brambleberry today and I have to say I'm really disappointed. I had a relatively large order of fragrance oils (27 total) and when they arrived about 6 had oozed out of their packaging. Two others are only filled about mid way, I don't know if it's due to spilling. As for the free samples- I was really excited to get samples of something different, it would have been nice to have gotten something I didn't expect...I received 2 small (1oz?) samples of Lavender Cedar which is a beautiful smell but I had already bought 2oz of it!! The Chipotle Caramel scent spilled and has pretty much contaminated all of the containers and it's really strong!! Unpackaging this box also ruined my manicure...just saying, after waiting patiently for delivery, I'm so disappointed!! Salty Mariner survived...smells nice :/

 Hi Juliana! I'm so glad you love our Salty Mariner Fragrance Oil! Though, I'm sorry your order arrived with so many fragrance oils leaking.  The Lavender & Cedar Fragrance Oil was our sample of the month but you're always more than welcome to request a different sample on your order.  You can do this by emailing or leaving a 'note' on your order within one business hour of placing it! I will email you personally to resolve this issue.

Smells great.
I have a grievance and I'm hoping someone can help. I used .8oz ppd in my 2lb batch. I soaped at 80 degrees and mixed my colors. I added this fo right before I was ready to pour. My issue is that I smell absolutely nothing. This is immediately after the batch was completed. Does the fragrance come back after or during cure? I really, really hope so. Thanks.

Hi Stella!  I'm sorry this fragrance wasn't your favorite.  In our tests and recipes we found the Salty Mariner was strong when we used .8 oz per pound of cold process soap.  Scent does get stronger throughout curing; we base the scents we choose off of what they smell like at six weeks of cure time! I will email you personally to discuss this further.

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!
