too light

made 2 batches...added more fragrance the second time, but the scent is faint. I went over and above the recommended amount. Would not buy again even though the scent is nice

Hi Miriam! I'm glad you liked the scent of our Cotton Candy Fragrance Oil! Though I'm sorry you found it to be a bit light. We do choose all of our fragrances based on a full 6 week cure time so depending on when you made your soap it may come back stronger if you wait until the end of the cure. For tips check out our How to Prevent Scent Fading in Cold Process Soap blog post.

Amazing in bath bombs!

Love this great sweet scent! Has a touch of tangy fruit scent, and is a bang-on scent for the carnival favourite. Have only used in bath bombs so far, but they have sold out faster than I can keep up! Can't speak to its performance in CP or other products thus far, but am thinking I'll try it out in some lotion!

Doesn't smell like cotton candy, fades in CP

I wanted a cotton candy fragrance for my CP soaps, after getting the cotton candy flavoring oil, which I tried in soaps, but it got really dark brown and leaves a kind of sticky feeling to the soap. This was a little disappointing right out of the bottle, only vaguely like cotton candy. It completely disappeared at first in my CP soap, but when it came back, it smelled like floral, nothing at all like cotton candy. It did immediately discolor to a light yellow, which I had planned for in my design. It's still getting darker and more tan, which doesn't look very good with the pink part of the batter I kept unscented. Not happy with this. Please try again. I love the flavoring oil, which smells exactly like cotton candy, and would love a complimentary fragrance for soaps.

It's Okay

Be cautious when using this fragrance oil, as it accelerates trace quickly. This DOES smell like cotton candy, but was a bit strong at first for my liking. It faded quite a bit during the curing process and I actually prefer the smell more so now, though it is a light one in CP soaps!

OH Em GEE!!!!

I am a die-hard cotton candy fanatic. I have to admit that I was a little skeptical when I finally bit the bullet and ordered The Cotton Candy.... It smells EXACTLY like cotton candy should smell. Memories of state fairs and cotton candy fluff melting in your mouth is just amazing! I am Tremendously happy with this fragrance! So much, that I am ordering MORE! Thank you so much!

Hi Gen! I'm so glad you found this to smell of cotton candy! Though you're right our Cotton Candy Fragrance Oil can definitely accelerate in cold process soap, as noted on the product page. To help slow this down, take 1 oz. (basically equal amounts of fragrance oil to fixed oil) liquid oil out of your recipe and heat it up to 100 degrees. Then, add your fragrance into this oil. This simply dilutes the fragrance oil’s initial acceleration. You can also add the oil/fragrance mixture earlier than usual. Rather than adding the fragrance at a thick trace, you can add it at the first sign of thin trace. Always hand stir the fragrance/oil mixture in with a fork/ladle and never, ever use a hand blender for problem oils. Lastly, raise your temperatures to about 110 to 115 degrees. This will help to keep your mixture more liquid than at a lower temperature. If it does start to rice you can try using your stick blender to help smooth the soap out as seen in the Soap Behaving Badly blog post.
