Smells good but...

So, I think this fragrance smells good, but it does smell a tad bit like medicine. Just wondering if it will lose the medicine smell in soap. I'm thinking because it's so concentrated straight from the bottle that, that may be why it smells like medicine to me?**update**So, I made cp soap with it and I love it!! Does not smell anything like medicine in soap. I actually like it better than the strawberry fo I got. 5 stars!

Fruity and sweet

sweet berry but no wine smell in my nose, even after a 6 wk cure.. Held up nicely in CP soap. I boiled down some red wine and used it for color. Came out nice.

too sweet (maybe will mellow?)

I made CP soap with this and poured it into the mold about an hour ago. Right now, it's grape koolaid-sweet. I hope it will be more wine-like after the cure, but I'm not optimistic. The terms "sweet" and "berries" are not what I associate with red wine. But it doesn't look like anyone makes a true Cabernet-like fragrance oil that I can find.

Tina from Bramble Berry replies...
Hi Jill! We choose all of our fragrance oils off a full 6 week cure so the Berrywine Fragrance Oil should definitely mellow during that time. Though this scent is definitely a sweeter version than the actual wine with lots of fruity notes as mentioned on the product page. We don't have many wine options but you may prefer our Champagne Fragrance Oil - it makes a great blender and is not too sweet.

I love this FO!!!

I really do love this fragrance! But WARNING, it has a sour berry smell straight out of the bottle! I have use it in CP soap, bath bombs, lotion & shampoo, it worked beautifully for all. Oh, it loses the sour smell as soon as its out of the bottle. I didn't see any discoloring or riceing. In my CP soap, it didn't speed up trace. I WILL NOT USE ANY OTHER BERRY FO AGAIN!!!!

Accelerates in CP soap

This really does smell like nail polish at first, which disappointed me because I bought it for liquid shampoo. I just used it in a batch of cold process soap though, and I'm hopeful that it will cure nicely. Warning though: it will really accelerate your soap batter!
