Kumquat: We set out a loaf of Kumquat Soap at Otion and out of the 15 logs of soap set out, the Kumquat universally elicited "Wows!" and "I want this!". Kumquat is along the lines of pomegranate - bright, fresh, purple with notes of green. It performs admirably in cold process soap and is divine in lotions. Kumquat is considered one of the hot new trends for 2008 so you'll be seeing this fragrance (along with other purples like pomegranate, mangosteen and acai berry) showing up in bodycare and fine perfumes.
NOTE: This medium-flashpoint oil (168ºF) cannot ship via USPS regardless of the shipping method you choose at checkout.
Liquid Castile Testing Notes: We tested this fragrance in our liquid Castile soap base, we recommend making a small test batch just to be sure you like the results. Mixed into soap easily. Final soap was almost perfect with just a hint of yellow.
Please note that this fragrance oil was reformulated October 2011 to meet new RIFM standards.
