Beautiful, but fades

This is by far the loveliest pear scent I have tested, and I've tested many! I used it in CP soap at the strongest level on the fragrance calculator, but by the end of a 4-week cure, there was no scent left at all. There were no competing scents in my oils or other ingredients. So sad it doesn't hold up in CP soap, but I may use it in bath bombs or lotion. UPDATE: It took 8 weeks, but the scent did indeed come back. It's not super strong, but it is strong enough, and lovely. If you plan to use it in CP soap, plan an 8-week cure.

Hi Elizabeth! I'm so glad you love the smell of our Crisp Anjou Pear Fragrance Oil! Though I'm sorry it's not holding up well in your cold process soap! We've found this scent sticks beautifully in CP though we do choose all of our fragrance oils off of a full 6 week cure as they often come back stronger at that point. I would recommend waiting the full cure and seeing how you like it! For more information check out our How to Prevent Scent Fading in Soap blog post.

This fragrance smells just like pears. It's fruity and delicious, and works well in every product I've tried it in.

Fresh, Lightly Sweet, Perfect!

Our customers LOVE this scent. We use it in both a CP soap and a lotion and it's been very popular in both. It's a light scent that is the perfect balance of sweet and fresh.

Nice smell... fades fast

This soap smells great out of the bottle and for the first couple weeks of curing. However, towards the end of the cure it had faded almost completely away. I would consider using it again but maybe anchoring it with some base notes to hold the scent longer.

I'm so glad you loved the smell of our Crisp Anjou Pear Fragrance Oil, though I'm sorry you had trouble with fading. While the Crisp Anjou Pear is a lighter scent, we found it to stick well in cold process when used at 0.8 oz per pound with our Handy Dandy Fragrance Calculator. Some ingredients can compete with the fragrance. For instance, tamanu oil has an earthy scent that can affect the way the fragrance oil smells.

No Scent in CP Soap

This smells amazing in the bottle however I made a batch of CP soap which I refridgerate for 24 hours so it does not gel and after unmolding there was no scent at all. When my soap began to warm up a very harsh parfumey fragrance was noted, it was so bad I had to move my soap into the garage because I was choking on it. It's been several days and the harsh parfumey smell has faded but still it smells nothing like it did in the bottle.

Hi Linda! I'm sorry this fragrance wasn't your favorite and you experienced some fading. We love the sweet and crisp scent of our Crisp Anjou Pear Fragrance Oil, and found it to last beautifully in cold process soap when used at 0.8 oz per pound of soap for a strong scent, found using our Fragrance Calculator. It sounds like the soap did not initially smell because it was cold, though for some more information on fading check out our How to Prevent Scent Fading in Soap blog post.
