I love the smell of this out of the bottle. When I made cp soap with it, at the maximum use rate, it smelled great at first. By the time it was fully cured, the fragrance was very light. In an outdoor market, you can't really smell it very much. I might mix the rest of it with yuzu, or something else with a really strong citrus scent. So, a little disappointed.
I've been buying this scent (as well as many others--they're awesome) since Bramble Berry opened! It's a solid-smelling citrus that wakes you up and makes you feel happy. It's sweet like orange yet tart like grapefruit at the same time. Customers love it.
I've made 2 batches of CP soap with this. I used 1 oz per pound of soap the first time and found it very mild. I used 1.5 oz per pound of soap the second time and really liked the stronger scent.
The description is right on: it is all about happiness & light. It's nice and fruity & citrus. It reminds me of Yuzu, but is different.
Behaves well, no acceleration, no ricing. I did ITP swirl both times with it and no problems. First batch had no discolor, second batch is still curing, but turned a cream/ light tan color.
This smells just like Juicy Fruit gum. Sticks well in cold process at 0.6 ounces per pound of soap.
