I went out on a limb ordering this fragrance with 53 5-star reviews. This one is the bomb-diddy! I am NOT a lavender fan, however I have customers who are. And they get grumpy when you don't have a few of the "basics". I am here to tell you this lavender is sexy. It's a deep, dark purple that you fall into and don't want to get out of. I was stalked at the grocery store because I used a bar of this plus some scented Natural Hemp Seed Oil. This Lady finally came up to me and asked what perfume I was wearing because it was amazing. Yeah, that good.
Wow! This scent arrived yesterday and I couldn't wait to use it. I made a test batch of cp soap recipe at room temperature and it behaved well. This is my favorite scent so far. I might not be able to share it or sell it!
I have never cared for the cloying scent of Amber so I was not expecting to like this FO. I was happily surprised to find that I not only enjoy the scent, this oil is a champ in cold process soap. It did not accelerate trace and, believe this or not, it actually WHITENED my batter. This may not happen with others depending on their recipe but that sort of shocked me...in a good way. I'm definitely going to be reordering this one soon. Ok, I wanted to be accurate with my review so I am posting this update of Black Amber and Lavender fragrance oil. My colors looked amazing and accurate for about a week. The batter itself, while making the soap, did turn whiter when I added the FO. However, about two weeks in, the turquoise has darkened considerably to a gray. Brambleberry testers are right on with this one. It will darken your soap A LOT. However, this particular soap I was making actually looks really good after the darkening. I am sold on this fragrance. It's lovely and worth using darker micas, etc. to incorporate it. Thanks for another great product BB! :)
I used this in a melt & pour soap consulting BB's fragrance calculator for medium. Wow! The fragrance was overwhelmingly strong at first, with amber dominating the scent. When I use it again, I might reduce how much I add; however, the fragrance has mellowed with time. The scent itself is a deep exotic perfume like fragrance. The more it mellows, the more I like it.
This is the best lavender fragrance I've ever found. I agree with the description that it is deep and sophisticated. I especially enjoy that it's not too powdery, and has a wonderful balance of sweet, floral, and earth tones.
