Find out how much of this scent to use
English Rose:This rose smells like an English rose garden. Not as deep as other roses, this is a true, light rose that will add a nice round rose smell to your soap. One of our customers loves this rose so much she wrote, "This is the best rose I have ever smelled and it is the only one that does not turn in my CP. I have had problems with every single other rose I have ever used but I give yours an A++++." A bonus - it does not discolor! This fragrance oil accelerates trace in cold process.

Just used this FO this past week and must say I used approximately 3.5 ounces it and it smells wonderful. This was in a 60 ounce soap batch. Watch out though! When added to the lye solution and oils, it started seizing quickly. (Very quickly). I dumped what I had back into the larger bowl, then took my stick blender and chopped up completely. It re-poured fine and looks great. I started out with two colors, but due to the seizing and re-blending, I now have one color. That's o.k. though. It's a very pretty rose pink color. Only the two end pieces had cream color on them. After cutting and stamping, I have a terrific batch of twelve bars. The scent is not overpowering and will use again.
But I do have a question,
How long after making soap, (or maybe I should say after curing), can soap be placed in shrink wrap bags? I do want to preserve the fragrance and have noticed on some of my other soaps that left out unattended by not wrapping, the smells have all but gone away.
Rose can sometimes be overpowering, but this is a nice delicate rose scent. I use it in reed diffusers, solid perfume, and soaps. They always turn out lovely, and the "rose lovers" on my gift list are delighted by it.
I tried this based on other reviews. I am not dissappointed. My soap (I did go light on the fragrance, based on comments) smells heavenly. I have used this fragrance in some fragrance blends for perfume and body sprays, and in lotions. It is well rounded, delicate, and a perfect substitute for the price prohibitive Rose Absolute EO. I will add that in reading the reviews, I saw the comment from the BB folks to try mixing some oil in with the FO to slow trace. I did this, and although there was some acceleration, I was still able to swirl. I will purchase again!
I love me some rose fragrance. Smells like grandmas! This is perfect. So powerful and utterly delightful. So very happy with cold and hot throw in my soy candles.
I have been buying this scent for the past few month. It is the only rose fragrance oil I have ever liked, as it smells just like a fresh picked rose. This last bottle I purchased is significantly different from the last few bottles I've purchased. The scent is more of a synthetic floral scent. What has happened to this oil? Has Brambleberry changed the way they make it? Sooo frustrated as I am in the process of making soaps & lotions for a customer who loved the original scent.
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Jennifer! I'm sorry you were frustrated with your most recent purchase of this scent. This scent has not been reformulated so I'm wondering if you received the wrong rose fragrance. I will email you directly to resolve this issue.
