Wildflower Honey Fragrance Oil: Inspired by the popular L’Occitane Honey & Propolis scent, this true and subtle honey fragrance has a beautifully sweet aroma that holds up well in cold process soap. The honey and floral tones in this fragrance are well encompassed by a warm and exotic bottom note. This comforting scent is great for the holidays. Use it for a honey latte or tea themed project!
Performance In Cold Process: This fragrance does not accelerate but does discolor to a light brown in cold process soap making.

This is A M A Z I N G! This fragrance smells sweet right out of the bottle and even sweeter as bar soap. I added 2 ounces of raw honey with a bit of Indigo Powder and it turned a beautiful green. It has cured for 3 weeks now and still smells wonderful...like honey.
This FO is an excellent duplicate of raw organic honey, at least here in northern VA. I made some and used my beekeeper neighbor's raw organic honey at trace, and they smell identical! I sold the bars at a local sale and he and his wife were so excited to see and smell the finished product - he was selling his honey and beeswax candles and they all just paired very nicely together. This was a great seller.
For me this smelled more floral than honey scented. I used it with melt and pour. I still gave it a full 5 stars because I still enjoyed the scent and it is true to the description. Others have described it as smelling just like honey. I'm thinking it may depend on how sensitive you are to floral scents. I normally do not like anything floral, but I did love this. My husband however had no interest in using this one.
When I opened the bottle and stuck my nose in it, I was seriously impressed. It's rich and sweet and I just had to sit on the corner of the bed sniffing it for a while because I couldn't quite bring myself to put the bottle down.
I then made a BIG batch of Cold Process milk soap with this scent at about 5% of fragrance to oil. It is potent, I walk in the house and I can smell it across the room, but the smell, while VERY sweet, is not cloying to me. My husband disagrees - for him, it is too sweet and too powerful, and he doesn't ever want to shower with it because he's afraid it will leave him sticky. That may be a testament to how accurately Brambleberry delivered the "Honey" scent, or it may be an indicator that this one's not for the guys. Either way, I'm in love. I am tempted to keep it forever and ever and maybe tuck a bar of soap into my underwear drawer... it's that good.
I really have to rave about this. Behaves beautifully in my CP soap, the fragrance just gets better (and stronger) in the curing. This is a WOW soap fragrance! Very true to a honey smell with a real sweet edge; just lovely, and wonderful in lotion as well. I'll be a repeat customer on this one for sure!
