Espresso Fragrance Oil: This comforting and familiar scent smells just like that good ol' cup a Joe. The fragrance entices the senses with opening notes of bitter-sweet chocolate, coconut, and almond. Middle notes of honey and caramel while finishing off with notes of roasted coffee bean and burnt sugar. This fragrance is a great addition to any coffee themed project. Espresso fragrance is more of a traditional coffee scent when compared with our more chocolate-like coffee fragrance Turkish Mocha. To add an extra level of coffee goodness to your products check out our luxurious coffee butter!
This fragrance smells best after it has 'aged' and been exposed to air, whether that is curing in a bar of soap or just being left out. Over time it becomes deeper and sweeter. So if you don't love it at first sniff, give it a week and try again!
Performance In Cold Process Soap: This fragrance does not accelerate but does discolor to a medium brown color in cold process soap. It holds up very nicely.

You know the movie Dante's Peak where the one guy says "coffee..coffee..coffee.." just think "espresso..espresso..espresso.."! Any coffee themed product I have made with this..customers crawl over each other to get it. Pure Espresso Scent and it's WONDERFUL! Great in M&P, Hard Lotion Bars and Sugar Scrub Bars. I have a friend who makes soy candles-AH-mazing!

I used this fragrance in a batch of cp soap and it turn out very nice with a great smell that filled the house, but within a few weeks the scent had diminished a lot and after a couple of months the scent had vanished. Sadly, I had to sell it at a drastically reduced price. Kind of a waste of beautiful ingredients.
Kelsey from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Michelle! I'm so glad you like the smell of our Espresso Fragrance Oil, though I'm sorry it faded in your batch. In our testing this scent held up very nicely in cold process soap and had a strong smell when used at 0.8 oz per pound, found using our Handy Dandy Fragrance Calculator. It can help to add a larger amount and cure it with the fragrance nearby! For more tips, check out the How to Prevent Scent Fading in Soap blog post.
Fantastic out of the bottle. Poured this CP soap twice and both times it smelled like cheap chocolate or a peanut butter cup. All the other ratings seem to have marvelous results so maybe I am doing something wrong? Either way, loved it out of the bottle just not final product.
Kelsey from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Dawn! I'm glad you thought our Espresso Fragrance Oil was fantastic out of bottle! Though I'm sorry you weren't thrilled with the results in cold process soap. This fragrance does smell best after it has "aged." Over time it becomes deeper and sweeter. For cold process soap, it will age during your cure so I recommend giving it another chance after a full six week cure time. If you're looking for other coffee scents you may like Turkish Mocha Fragrance Oil, though does have more of a chocolatey smell to it.
This fragrance smells just. like. coffee!! I added coffee grounds for a gentle exfoliation. I added 2 ozs for a 5lb mold which is perfect to me! The aroma just gets better and better with time! I found it interesting how the soap kept getting a deeper brown as time went by. This is by far one of my favorite fragrances! GREAT job, Bramble!!
