Find out how much of this scent to use
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%

This is an awesome fragrance but in the six 30lb pours I've done I do experience some not so fun acceleration. I always hold my breathe when getting ready to pour this.
This is a great vanilla smell. I personally LOVE vanilla. I found this scent sells really well to those who only 'like' vanilla. It has a more complex smell and sold like crazy at the Christmas shows!
Smells really intense in the bottle. I'm not a fan of how woodsy it is in the bottle, but some people like that. When you add it to soap, after a week or two of curing, the woodsy scent fades a good amount and smells really great!! Not overpowering at all once the CP soap cures. :) Love it.
After reading all of the reviews (despite fearing the anise scent), I went ahead and ordered a bit to give it a try. I found that the anise/fennel scent was almost over powering in the bottle, but very muted in my soaps. As such, I am very glad that I decided to give it a shot. It is a hit with my male customers and a few of my women too.
Over all though, I was hoping for something a little more oak-ish scent wise, but this is still a really good blend.
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!
