Find out how much of this scent to use
Vanilla, Tahitian: After years of you begging us to get a Tahitian Vanilla, we've come out with a Bramble Berry version of this popular fragrance. The secret to this fragrance? It's coconut! That's right, fresh, luscious smelling coconuts are the main note in this blend, followed by some supporting notes of Orange, Lily, Roses and of course, Vanilla. This fragrance will discolor your soap, lotions and toiletries a lovely brown color but the smell is so rich and creamy, we're thinking that you won't mind. Whisk yourself away to comforting vanilla coconut bliss and try some of this fragrance.
This fragrance withers miserably in cold process soap and smells like a generic sweet scent instead of the complex Vanilla it does in melt and pour, lotions and bath fizzies.
Vanilla Content: 7.6%
This fragrance is phthalate free.
Flashpoint: 200ºF +

This fragrance is great. It is not strong, so it worked very well in my lightly scented soap. It smells like vanilla and coconut. I will be purchasing this scent again.
I LOVE anything vanilla. I have never smelled real Tahitian Vanilla but love this scent. It's vanilla with a twist. I like it because it isn't your typical sweet smelling vanilla. It is more subtle. You smell the top note of spice with the base note of vanilla. The spice is not overwhelming and is toned down by the vanilla. I make it in a hand milled soap which sells very well. I also make it in a body butter for myself and like it because it is not overwhelming like some vanilla scents can be. This is my third time to run out of this fragrance so I am getting the 16oz size this time...that means it will be a staple on the shelf and has passed the sell test.
The first thing I smelled when I opened the bottle was musk. To me it doesn't even smell like Vanilla. I was so disappointed by the smell. I guess I thought it would be a real vanilla smell. I will just have to go back to a regular vanilla. Tahitian vanilla (which I get from my mother in law every time she goes home to Tahiti for a visit) doesn't smell anything like this. Tahitian Vanilla in its true form smells just like regular vanilla.

Hi Mary! There are some fragrances that actually smell different in the bottle than they do in soap, and that is why we always suggest smelling them out of the bottle to get their true potential. To test them, we typically dab a bit on a cotton ball and allow it to breathe for 5-10 minutes. Then give it a whiff and see if that scent is different than what you are smelling in the bottle.
