Great selection. Good sized portions and variety. A wonderful way to try several scents for a budget price. The selections lent itself to some blends of my own as well.
I ordered 2 sampler sets (Best of BB and Floral) and I am beyond happy with the variety of scents!!
I'm new to bath bomb making so I wasn't sure which scents I would like or want to use. I found the sampler section and I can't recommend it more. It's a great way for me to experiment with new scents without spending tons of money. I was buying essential oils off of amazon before (I was having a lot of trouble finding fragrance oils), and for the same price you get more then 2x the amount of these fragrance oils. There are a couple of scents here I don't imagine myself using as much, but I'm sure I'll find a reason to use them (for friends/family/holidays).
My favorites by far are Cybilla Yuzu and Energy. I had no idea what to expect with these two (judging by the names) and when I opened the sampler I was suprised! I can't wait for this weekend when I get to try all of them out. I'm sure once I run out of these samples I'll be coming back to buy a full size of my favorites!
I am thrilled with all 3 samplers I purchased. The packaging was phenomenal, the sample sizes are quite generous, and the scents are all wonderful in their own way. If you are new to soaping I highly recommend indulging in the samplers here, as they don't break the bank, yet provide plenty of product to play around with.
I cannot complain about any of these either OOB or cured. I havent tried a bit of them yet but i do sure cant stand people who complain! Its one reason i review to be honest, because people are spoiled and in a hurry. Its every own persons responsibility to educate themselves about every single product before using it all willy nilly so if anyone soaps discolors its their own fault! I actually love the brown colors vanilla makes...and if im loving my colors so much you better believe im going to make sure nothing messes with that! Practice makes perfect! Anyways, Plumeria is AMAZING! White tea and ginger and of course the oatmeal and honey makes me just want to curl up and read a book.. I have been missing out not using any of these scents. Although I am an EO person all the way i LOVE using a TINY bit of these fragrances mixed in and it just makes my soaps TRULY unique! 10 stars
I bought this sampler thinking if it's the Best of BB, all of them must be the best. Well some are good, some are great, but a few are disappointing.
I made Island Coconut and added the Lime from another sampler I bought at the same time. Well even though it was only 2% Vanilla, it turned my gorgeous green soap, which I used a lot of the sample of green oxide I bought, a diarrhea brown and pink!
Maybe you should think about adding a sample size of Vanilla Stabilizer to each of the samplers that has a Vanilla percentage?
Or maybe add the stabilizer directly to the fragrance oil in the bottle? Or mark the samples that have vanilla with a warning?
Something needs to be done!
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Heather! I'm sorry you were disappointed in this sampler. Any fragrance oils with a vanilla content will discolor your soap, you can see an example of how strong the discoloration is on each fragrance oil's product page. That's a great idea about the Vanilla Color Stabilizer! I will definitely bring it up to our development team. Though, the reason we have not yet done so is because the stabilizer only works in melt and pour soap, making it useless for any cold process soapers or people making lotions, bath bombs, etc. If you're looking for a coconut scent that does not discolor you may like Coconut Lemongrass Fragrance Oil or Coconut Mango Fragrance Oil.
