Not my type of vanilla
I'm a huge vanilla fanatic, but this one gave me a headache. I was expecting a smoother, more vanilla bean type scent, and this just smelled like super strong, fake vanilla. I got this for my bath fizzies, so I'm going to try mixing it with some other FO's and maybe cutting the recipe amount in half, but I don't believe I'll be repurchasing this.

No Vanilla Scent in CP Soap!
I don't know what went wrong with this one, but there is seriously no vanilla scent in my soap and I put in 1 oz FO per lb soap. Defective vanilla batch? Won't use this ever again in CP soap. I'm going to have to turn this into personal laundry soap....... dark brown laundry soap. Big bummer.

Hi Lisa! I'm sorry you were disappointed in this fragrance. We love the rich scent of our Vanilla Select Fragrance Oil and find it to stick wonderfully in cold process soap. We do choose all of our scents based off of a six week cure time as some fragrances will weaken slightly during curing then come back strong after a full cure. I would recommend waiting until the cure is over then see what you think! For more tips and tricks check out our How to Prevent Scent Fading in Cold Process Soap blog post.

So nice!
I'm not a fan of vanilla really, seems bland and characterless to me. I bought a big bottle of this from someone who was giving up the soaping game and selling their supplies. I'm glad I decided to grab this 16 oz bottle. It really smells like a nice warm vanilla and not synthetic as some I've smelled, and people really love it. It does turn the soap a very dark brown, but knowing this I made my soap with half unscented white soap to make the most elegant white and brown swirled soap.

Great without the Phthalates
It smells divine but I'm so sad it contains phthalates. Did previous versions contain phthalates? It's the first thing I look for and I've been buying this for years. Very sad I'll have to discontinue using it!

Hi Ginny! I'm so glad you think our Vanilla Select Fragrance Oil smells divine! We do too! Though I'm sorry you're disappointed that it contains phthalates. Our version has always contained phthalates though we're currently working towards all of our fragrances being phthalate-free in the future. I will email you personally to discuss this further.

Great vanilla!
I narrowed down a few different vanilla scents from multiple vendors but settled on this one! It's my fastest selling soap! I got several 5 star reviews with this scent in my glycerin soaps. One review did say it was very sweet like frosting and that it wasn't their thing. Overall the reviews are great and I love it!
