Use this in M&P shaving soap 1:1 with lime. Husband says it reminds him of going to the barbershop with his dad.

Not strong enough even at suggested usage rate.

This fragrance behaved nicely in my cold process soap. It did not accelrate trace and so far it has not turned my soap brown. Unfortanatly the scent is so light I can not smell it at all. I used your fragrance calculator and unfortnatly a week into the cure and their is not much scent.

I'm glad you found the Bay Rum Fragrance Oil to behave nice in your cold process soap. In our testing it also smelled strong in CP when used at 0.8 oz per pound of soap with our Fragrance Calculator. We do choose all of our fragrance oils based on a full 6 week cure when they tend to come back stronger in scent so you may like it better then. For more information check out our How to Prevent Scent Fading in Soap blog post.

Very disappointed

The scent is no bay rum at all - very faint - at least the bottle i had was. used it twice - second time 3x as much - no change - faint smell - not bay rummy at all. Wasted $. Wish they gave samples so we could test, for those of us far away.

We find the Bay Rum Fragrance Oil to be strong when used at the max usage rate of 0.8 oz per pound in cold process soap, using our Fragrance Calculator. For tips to prevent scent fading see: How to Prevent Scent Fading blog post. We also have a great Sniffy Sample program so you can smell the scents before purchasing.

Not Bay Rum

This is really a very clove heavy scent. To me, this is not what Bay Rum smells like. To make this usable I'd have to cut it with vanilla and citrus scents. Just really not what I expected.

Hi Jason! I'm sorry this fragrance was not what you were expecting. We love the masculine blend of Bay Rum Fragrance Oil! Though you're right it does currently lean more on the spicy side of things due to a shortage of natural Bay Oil that had once been used in the FO. You're blending suggestions sounds like a great idea! For other masculine scents that are less spice focused you may prefer Tobacco & Bay Leaf Fragrance Oil, Drakkar Type Fragrance Oil, or Shave and a Haircut Fragrance Oil.

Not by itself

It's hideous by itself. I had to blend it. When blended with another oil, it was satisfactory.
