I loved the smell of this soap, but after I added it to my soap the soap turned yellow. Is there anyway to prevent this. I now have yellow soap with purple swirls.
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Dana! I'm so glad you love the smell of your soap from using our Blackberry Cybilla Fragrance Oil! This scent does discolor because of the vanilla content, as seen in the example of this FO in cold process soap above. You can find out more about this in the "Why Did my Soap Turn Brown?" blog post. This is a quirky feature of handmade soap that you can't can definitely work with if using the right colors. I will email you personally to discuss this further.
I wanted to love this. I really did. I'd settle for liking it. But it just does not smell like blackberry. It smells like grape cough syrup. If I'm being generous, it smells like grape candy. Definitely not like real fruit of any kind, though, let alone blackberry. I can't say I'm terribly surprised, as I have yet to smell a blackberry fragrance that smells true to the fruit. But I had high hopes, as finding a straight blackberry scent--not a blend--is so difficult.
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Charlotte! I'm sorry you were disappointed with this fragrance. We love the juicy, sweet smell of our Blackberry Cybilla Fragrance Oil. We choose all of our fragrance oils based on six weeks of cure time and this scent definitely mellows out once in product! If you're looking for other fruity scents you may like Black Raspberry Vanilla Fragrance Oil, Blackberry Sage Cybilla Fragrance Oil, or Berrywine Fragrance Oil.
This is a great berry-type scent. I've found that both men and women really like this one. I'd like it to be a little less sweet, so I'll be trying the Blackberry Sage next to see if it's more to my tastes.
This is a very very sweet smell. Perfect for a fruity/berry theme. I used it in M&P and used a purple color block to color the batch. I didn't notice any discoloration.
I have to say this smell is incredible. My three year old grand daughter said "Ma, I know I can't eat soap but this smells good enough to eat." This is all the memories of summers day! When my customers don't know what they want I suggest this soap. No one has been disappointed yet! I used CP soap and colored it purple with some black accents. Color behaved beautifully.
