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%

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.

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!

Mixed feelings
There is something about this one that repels me. I don't know what it is. The licorice note another reviewer mentioned, maybe? It does soap well, though, dicolors a bit, but in a way that matches the scent, and men LOVE this scent.

This one is a huge favorite with my customers, both men and women. I don't really think that I recognize it as a typical vanilla fragrance though. It's deep and musky and not too sweet. I have only used it in CP soap, and it does discolor a lot, so I do it with a black swirl.

Licorice hiding in there?
I really wanted to love this but I used it in CP soap and lotion and was not impressed. It has a slightly anise-sweet scent that puts me off (I hate black licorice though), maybe its the sweet heliotrope I am getting? I was hoping that this would be my next "manly" best seller but I have discounted it just to move it out of the shop. It got a 3 because it is easy to work with and it is masculine.

Some other awesome, masculine fragrances you could try would be Beau Brummel, Cold Water, Shave and a Haircut or Wasabi.
