When I first opened this bottle, I wasn't too sure. However, it smells very lovely in the finished soap. I have had so many problems with acceleration and seizing from non-BB products, but I have to say that every fragrance oil I have purchased from this site has been so, so wonderful. This fragrance really isn't what I was expecting. It doesn't smell like cucumber kiwi to me, but it does have a really great fragrance which is why I am still giving it 5 stars. It did not accelerate or rice at all, but it did discolor a little. I added green mica pigment which only showed in the gelled portion- the rest was tan. I was expecting this since BB (thankfully) describes what to expect from every fragrance. I also used 2 oz for a recipe that made around 65 oz of soap, and it was perfect. If you haven't yet tried the fragrance calculator- you should. It is spot on! Thanks Brambleberry for another amazing product!
I hesitated to make this as when I smelled it in the bottle I was kinda 'meh' and it smelled overly strong. I am looking for something very cucumbery. Well I made it, and it has cured about 7 days. The scent is perfect! It is so nice. I am not sure what a kiwi smells like, but this smells like cucumber and something very lovely. I am glad I gave it a chance. It is a good lesson to try things in the actual CP soap, and not rely on the smell in the bottle.
Like a couple of the other reviews, I find it more of a cucumber scent and less kiwi scent. I also find it a bit "perfumey" for my taste, but not completely unbearable in the finished soap. The light, fruity scent does make it a good choice for summery projects, though.
I have tried many cucumber scents, and this is truly my favorite. I love it mixed with Green Tea for a fabulous spa scent. Behaves beautifully in CP.
This fragrance performed very well in cp soap. It did not discolor or accelerate the soap. I do detect a very light cucumber scent. I don't smell any kiwi. Maybe kiwis don't have much of a scent? I think next time I will buy the cucumber and melon scent............
