Please Note: This fragrance was reformulated April 2016, due to a shortage of natural Bay Oil. The scent has slightly changed.
Bay Rum Fragrance Oil: The quintessential cologne aftershave lotion scent, this fragrance is all about exotic spices - Allspice, Capers, Cloves, Nutmeg and mix with Crushed Orange, Crisp Pine Needles and just a touch of Patchouli and Vanilla to add a deep base note for staying powder. The fragrance does discolor a tan so do a small test batch before deciding on your coloring options. Because of the Clove notes, it may accelerate trace in your batch. As always, we urge a small test batch if this fragrance is new to you.

It's hideous by itself. I had to blend it. When blended with another oil, it was satisfactory.
I'm addicted to 3 or 4 of BB masculine scents. This is one of them. I don't care for the peachy, rosy, candy type smells in cooler weather. These intoxicating leathery scents are just right for a cozy evening in watching your favorite flick. I use my scents in candles and it's one of my favorite parts of winter. A fire, a nice scent, a warm atmosphere , a dear loved one and good movie. Thanks for all the great masculine scents, BB
When I got this, I didn't care for it out of the bottle. But then I made it into some CP soap and after about a week I was in love. It smelled just like Brachs Spice Drops. LOVE them! Whatever turned me off smelling it in the bottle was gone! It did not misbehave and made a lovely unisex scented "spicy" soap.
I love this scent. I tried a different bay rum and it only smelled like men's cologne to me, and I don't care for cologne scents (shave and a haircut-types). This one has the strong orange and clove notes. So many people like this one--men and women, mostly in their 20's and 30's, I've found. I didn't have any trouble with acceleration. I was worried about it, but someone had requested this scent so I plowed ahead. I followed the instructions from the previous reviews for mitigating acceleration, and everything went just fine. A great fall/christmas scent, but also great all year. Nothing else really compares. If you like citrusy, spicy, clove kinds of scents, you should like this.
It just smells a little of cinnamon to me. The scent was so watered down for me I thought someone accidentally filled that bottle with water. I poured the entire 8 oz. Bottle in my 10 lbs of soap and couldnt smell it all. So I poured 6 ozs of mulled cider ( from another company) into it and called it "apple orchard" . Thank god I was able to do something with it! Just for the record. I usually LOVE brambleberry scents. I buy them almost exclusively
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Lesli! I'm sorry you disappointed in this scent. We found this scent was strong when used at .8 oz per pound of cold process soap using our Handy Dandy Fragrance Calculator. We always choose our fragrance oils based on what they smell like after a full six weeks of cure time, as sometimes some scents do fade initially due to the lye but come back strong after a full cure!
