Description 

Spiced Mahogany: This deep, rich woody scent has notes of Italian Bergamot, Apple Wood and Tonka Bean to round out the darker, more sensuous Patchouli, Cedarwood, and Oakmoss. To keep this fragrance from smelling like a freshly cut wood floor, we've added spices of Cardamom, Vanilla Bourbon and allspice. Because of the Vanilla, this fragrance will discolor your soap but the resulting fragrance is one of sophistication and verve.

Vanilla Content: 5%

Flashpoint: 200ºF+

One of my favorites!
Spiced Mahogany is one of my absolute favorite scents of all the different scents that I use. This gives a wonderful woodsy, nutty scent that blends perfectly with other scents and gives a good base note without being too heavy in my candles. I use it in my regular line of candles and in my fall line. I would highly highly recommend this fragrance.

Middle East meets Far East Amber
Spiced Mahogany is a wonderful amberish fragrance. We really wanted to love it, but must say that we feel it is incompatible with cold or hot process soap. With using a tried and true and very scientific CP process, the fragrance failed whether it was added normal, early, or late. Added early, it would blend in well but within two weeks the vanilla and sweet tones were gone. Added normal, it would rice so bad clumps of fragrance would make it dangerous to sell. Adding late, and you can't get it out of the pot. It does work better in the hot process, but again the scent left was so faint it is not worth it. We also tried incorporating it with assorted herbs and clays still with no success. With all that said the scent is still so wonderful, we will use it in lotions and aftershaves.

Hi Gerianne! In our tests and recipes, we've found that this fragrance does cause mild acceleration and ricing. To help slow down the acceleration, 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 110 to 115 degrees. This will help to keep your mixture more liquid than at a lower temperature. Also, you can stick blend your soap if it starts ricing to create a smooth texture. See how in this Soap Behaving Badly blog post. I'll be emailing you to discuss this!

I bought this one for my boyfriend to learn CP with, and well, he learned a bit more than I intended. I wish the product description would mention how fast it moves! That said it's a nice fragrance, although sweeter than I expected

Spiced Mahogany CP Soap
Oh my goodness I love this fragrance, I think it is one of my favorites. It does move fast in cp soap, and I did get some ricing but it turned out great, and everyone who smells this, from men to women love it. You do have to like a musky smell, in which I do. LOVE!!!

Very Fast Acceleration
Get ready to move fast with this one. Even soaping at low temps, this FO moves fast. I was using the round original silicone mold for this and that was the problem. Got one good pour then that was it, next time I will use a loaf and pour it all in quick. Other than that, the scent is strong, a little goes a long ways and reminds me of a smokey cedar/mahogany. A very manly scent. I made beer soap with this and I think It will be well received by customers.
