Description 

Vanilla Oak: Over a year ago, a customer sent us a partially burned candle from an obscure vendor. We loved it so much that we spent the better part of a year trying to perfect this mystical blend. With notes of Light Camphor, Italian Bergamot, Cassia Root to provide flighty top notes, this fragrance really shines with the strong middle and base notes of Sweet Heliotrope, Soft Amber, Warm Oak, Sandalwood, Patchouli and Creamy Vanilla. It's a lot to fit in one small fragrance but we think you'll be enchanted. Discolors to brown in toiletries because of the Vanilla but smells so good you won't even care.

Vanilla Content: 5.9%

NOTE: This medium-flashpoint oil (186ºF) cannot ship via USPS regardless of the shipping method you choose at checkout.

Nice alone, but great in a blend, too!
I had made a batch of hand-milled soap with Beau Brummel, but found I didn't like that fragrance by itself; it had some sharp note to it. I made another batch, this time blending the BB with Vanilla Oak, hoping to tone it down. Oh. My. It helped smooth the Beau Brummel, and created a lovely fragrance!

Omg so good!
The hunt for a complicated non-traditional vanilla just ended. This FO is almost complex enough to be a perfume. For people who love deep, dark and mysterious vanilla-based scents that are more of a woodsy artistic interpretation of vanilla than a straight translation of a sugary confection, Vanilla Oak is a huge winner. I took one whiff of this and fell in love. I'm a lotion-maker, not a soaper, so I can't attest to how this FO performs in soaping, but as far as lotions are concerned, it's a standout winner amongst the scents I've been testing. I think most FOs tend to smell "soapy" in lotions. This one doesn't smell like "soap" at all; it smells like the lotion compliment to a designer perfume. Whoever sent in that candle stump, thank you (and to Brambleberry staff for spending a year to recreate it)! So worth it!!

I love this vanilla!
I like this vanilla because it it no too sweet. The oak gives it a bit of depth. I now use this as the vanilla base at my perfume parties near Philadelphia.

Smells awesome but trace acceleration
This one moved quickly for me too. Luckily, I read some of the reviews first and was soaping at about 80-85 degrees. I also added this when the batter was mixed well but hadn't reached trace yet. Within a few minutes of adding the fragrance it went from watery to quite thick. All the same, love the fragrance. Even with how complex it is, I've found it blends well with quite a few florals.

Significant Acceleration & Discoloration
This FO smells wonderful, but be prepared for SIGNIFICANT ACCELERATION. As stated in the description, it discolors to brown, but I can live with that. BB, please add the acceleration to your description. I often look to your description and assume that if there is no mention of Acceleration or Discoloration then it's going to be "all good." For this FO, you'd have to read into the customer reviews to find this information.

Reply from Bramble Berry
Hi Michelle! I’m sorry to hear you experienced significant acceleration with this fragrance. In our tests, we did not experience any acceleration, so I will be contacting you personally to help find out why this may have happened with your batch. Please look out for my email!
