I can never keep this in stock!

This is one of my favorite fragrances to soap with. It sticks well in CP soap, doesn't discolor (at least that I have noticed) and my customers love it. I have been buying it repeatedly for over three years. The only tricky part is the acceleration of trace. As long as I'm paying attention, it always turns out fine.
wish I'd asked for a sample...

I was hoping for more of a true, salty, ocean rain fragrance. I really don't like this at all. I marched on and made soap with it, trying to cut the smell with some coconut fragrance. I just hope my customers like it.... I had no problem with discoloration. I was prepared for quick trace and stirred quickly. Very quickly! If my daughter likes this, I'll give her what's left in the bottle.

Hi Marilyn! I'm sorry this fragrance wasn't your favorite. If you're looking for ocean scents, you make like Salty Mariner Fragrance Oil, Beach Breezes Fragrance Oil, or Kentish Rain Fragrance Oil.

Discolored
by Jackie on 6/24/2014
I really like the smell of this one, but I don't think I will be using it again. Yes, it did accelerate trace, but it does state that and I was ready for it. What surprised me was the discoloration. The batter was a beautiful creamy white before I whisked the fragrance in. It seemed fine as I mixed, no obvious discoloration or ricing. But, boy when I sliced the soap, it looked terrible. It was yellow and a terrible texture. The scent is not worth the trouble when there are so many other nice fragrances to choose from.

Hi Jackie! I’m happy to hear that you enjoyed the smell of this fragrance oil, but sorry to hear that your soap experienced discoloration. In our tests, this fragrance oil did not result in any discoloration, and is what we consider a “Water White Fragrance Oil.” I will be emailing you personally to help troubleshoot why this may have happened to your soap :)

i like it.

i like it. its a clean scent, but something about this scent reminds me of when i used to work nights at walmart. i cant put my finger on it, but it does smell like something i used to stalk. cleaning product or beauty product i cant remember ( i tried blacking out those awful nights i used to work there) but overall i do like it. its very clean and refreshing. a bit masculine so i prefure to use this soap for my mens lol. but i will order more. i am not sure what phthalates are. gotta google it.
I love the smell but...

I soaped with everything at room temperature and my batch went from in the pot swirl consistency to thick concrete mixture in less than a minute. There went my mica oil swirl on top :(

Hi James! I'm sorry to hear that this fragrance misbehaved for you. In our tests, we have found this fragrance led to mild acceleration, but we have not experienced seizing. I will be contacting you personally to help troubleshoot why this may have happened to your batch!

Awesome smell!

I LOVE this fragrance & my customers love it too but it seizes my soap. I put it in a Cambrian Blue clay batch & it seized but I got it in the molds before it got bad. The 2nd batch seized bad, my bars are ugly but hopefully usable. It could be my fault for adding it before the oil & lye mixture got below 100 degrees.
Smells great but...

It accelerates trace very quickly. My batter went from light trace to thick and clumpy in less than a minute. If I use it again I won't even worry about adding color, it just didn't give me enough time to add any even though I had wanted to..

I’m sorry to hear that this fragrance did not behave well for you. In our tests with this fragrance, we did experience a small amount of acceleration but no ricing. I will be emailing you personally to try and help you troubleshoot to find out why this might have happened.

YES!

This scent is perfection. At first sniff (in the bottle) ozone notes hit you which is exactly what something called "ocean rain" should smell like, not weird floral notes. It's quite a manly scent but I'm sure it would work well if paired with a sweeter more feminine oil. I'm currently using this in a perfume oil for myself (diluted of course) and it smells heavenly.
STRONG!
by Kristin on 10/27/2013
Made brother-in-law this soap. He likes strong smelling soap, so I made this with the "strong" amount according to the fragrance calculator. WAY too strong for me, but he liked it. Didn't noticeably accelerate for me and I mixed the pigment in after the FO, in CP Soap.
Great in CP
by Faith on 7/7/2013
I use this fragrance in my Ocean themed bars and have no issues with discoloration or ricing. May trace slightly but still works for in the pot swirls. Love the scent.
Smells Great
by Diane on 7/4/2013
Smells fantastic! My husband loves this, and so do a lot of my friends. The only problem was it accelerated trace and riced and seized like I have never experienced before. I still use it and will continue to in the future. But I have to move very fast after I add to my CP soap recipe.
Accelerates, but smells great!
by Dana on 7/4/2013
On the plus side, this fragrance smells great. It's a strong, masculine fragrance. On the other hand, it accelerated on me like crazy in a recipe I use all the time with no similar issues. It also riced. However, the soap turned out just fine and smells awesome. Just be ready to move quickly if you try it.
