This scent is my most popular CP bar going on 2 years! I haven't noticed any difference in the reformulation & neither have my customers.

Not the same

From what I am reading from other comments is this has been reformulated. This also used to be one of our biggest sellers. It is still selling for us, just not as well. We took a break for a few years and just came back to soaping this year. This one is a big disappointment as it has a total different undertone to it. Not sure how to explain it, but its just gross compared to the original. Disappointing.

Hi Laura! I'm sorry this fragrance wasn't your favorite. We love the refreshing citrus and bubbly notes in our Energy Fragrance Oil and find the reformulation to smell the same in soap. If you're looking for other citrus blends, you may prefer Grapefruit Bellini Fragrance Oil, Rise and Shine Fragrance Oil or Coconut Citrus Sorbet Fragrance Oil.

It's different

I used to love this fragrance. And it was a best seller. It was always fast to sell out. But since the formulation change, I can't even give this away. I can't stand the smell. I had an old bar and I compared them - they don't smell the same. I will not be buying this again, and will have to dump what I do have left as I won't be using it.

Hi Nicole! I'm sorry you were disappointed in this reformulation. We love the new Energy Fragrance Oil and did extensive testing to make sure the soap smelled as close to the original as possible after curing for 4-6 weeks. If you've recently made the soap, I would recommend waiting until it has fully cured before deciding if you like the scent. Otherwise, you can try blending it with a little extra citrus to give it more punch, like the Pink Grapefruit Fragrance Oil.

Sicky sweet

I'm pretty sure that "Energy" is the absolute last word I would use to describe this fragrance. I found it to be nauseatingly sweet. I tried to pep it up with spearmint EO, but didn't add enough to make my test batch tolerable. I may try to find a way to blend this FO with something to cut the gagging sweetness, but I'm not holding out much hope.

Hi Alicia! I'm sorry you found this fragrance to be overly sweet. We love the the bright citrus blend of our Energy Fragrance Oil, though everyone's noses are different! You may prefer the scent if you try blending it with some straight citrus to help cut the other sweeter notes, like Pink Grapefruit Fragrance Oil or Lime Fragrance Oil.

Did not Stick to Soap

I most always enjoy the fragrances bought here. I was dissappointed in the Energy scent. While it smelled good in the soap for about a week, it sooned dissapated. Now it just smells like unscented soap.

Hi Kathie! I'm sorry you were disappointed in this scent. We love the Energy Fragrance Oil and found it to behave and stick beautifully in cold process in our tests and recipes, especially when used at 0.8 oz per pound of cold process for a strong scent, found using our Handy Dandy Fragrance Calculator. We do choose all of our scents based on a full six week cure time, so I would recommend giving it until the full cure as the scent can come back!
