Vanilla Vanilla: This scent came about after a we smelled fresh Bourbon and Tahitian vanilla beans. We just knew we had to capture the intoxicating scent in a FO so our perfumer went to work and created Vanilla Vanilla. It features the rich dark sultry scent of Bourbon Vanilla beans with the sweet slightly fruity scent of Tahitian Vanilla beans. Holds up very well in CP soap but does discolor to a dark almost black brown. One sniff of this scent and we think you will agree that it's worth it.

Reply from Bramble Berry Hi Skye! I'm sorry you found this scent unpleasant. We love the rich smell of Bourbon Vanilla in harmony with the sweeter Tahitian Vanilla beans! Though, because this fragrance is a vanilla and has a vanilla content of 19.5% it will discolor to a dark brown, almost black. It's quite normal to start out a lighter color and darken over time; a quirky feature of handmade soap! If you're looking for vanillas you may like Vanilla Select Fragrance Oil, Vanilla Bean Fragrance Oil, or Sandalwood Vanilla Fragrance Oil. I will email you personally to discuss this further.

Hi Bee! This fragrance has not been approved for lip balms. We definitely don't recommend using it in your lip balm recipe! If you'd like to add scent to your balms, you can add our flavor oils. I'll be emailing you personally to resolve this issue!
