Wow, this smell is gorgeous and is a dead ringer for wassail - perfect replication. I saw some of the other reviews and prepared for this to trace quickly, but holy cow, I barely got my stick blender out in time! I cp'd with lots of olive oil at about 90 degrees, and it still went fast. So do not plan to do ANYTHING except get your soap in the mold after you add this fragrance! It smells so good, though, that it's worth it. I did a swirl on top with a little unfragranced soap that I separated out early, and it's perfect - I want my kitchen to smell like this all winter!
This fragrance is beautiful, it has a lot of citrus on the top and as you work your way down you get to the spices. I think it would even be a good all year fragrance. I added lemon powder and orange peel. I love this. I did get a lot of acceleration in this recipe. Next time I will have to change my recipe to include more olive or rice bran. I need to order more before the minimum order requirement. Up date: I used this in the bath last night...WOW The whole bathroom and into the bedroom smelled like Wassail...You know this fragrance is great when you can also smell it on your skin. GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!! I really can't believe that this fragrance has slow sales????
I absolutely love this FO, it smells so delicious! The first few times I used it I was making hot process soap, so I never noticed any issues with acceleration. But just now I tried to cold process it and oh dear! I only stick blended my soap for a single 30 second-ish burst when it started misbehaving on me and I had no choice but to hot process it. Next time I'll be very careful with the stick blending and I'll be sure to my whisk nearby. I'm kind of bummed I didn't get to do an ITP swirl as I had originally planned. Better luck next time, I guess.
I am so in love with this scent! I actually make wassail every year and this is a pretty close match to it. It's kind of hard to describe in words exactuly what this smells like but, if someone smells it they love it! I also love how holiday friendly it is without being minty.
This fo is very true to the description, but something was off for me that I can't quite put my finger on. I used it in soy candles only, so I still want to try in CP for fall. In soap, I think it will be better than Apple Jack Peel (which I thought was a little sharp for a soap). I did make another candle with some vanilla cookie type fo (not BB) blended in and it was very nice. I will experiment some more and see how I like it - I really want to like it more.
