Sandalwood Vanilla: Customers have been asking us for years to come up with a Sandalwood Vanilla blend that is sweet and creamy yet woodsy enough to use as a man's fragrance. Our Sandalwood Vanilla smells different in cold process soap than in the bottle. It's warm and inviting in soap, and of course, discolors soap brown because of the Vanilla content. Straight out the bottle, there are more powder notes that are not present in the finished product. Be prepared to move fast while using this fragrance, it will accelerate trace quite quickly and can seize at higher temperatures.
Flashpoint: 200ºF +

Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Beth! I'm so glad you think our Sandalwood Vanilla Fragrance Oil is rich and not overly sweet! Though I'm sorry it was faint smelling in your test batch. In our tests and recipes we found this fragrance had a strong scent when used at .32 oz per pound of soap as recommended by the Handy Dandy Fragrance Calculator. We base all of our choices on a full six weeks of cure time, when the smell tends to peak. I will email you personally to discuss this further.
