I made cup cake soaps with this scent and they are good enough to eat! Just love this scent. Going to order it again that is for sure :)

Very disappointed.

I guess I got a bad batch; this smells horrid. When I first smelled it in the bottle, it had an overwhelming burned odor. I had hoped it'd be fine in soap. In fact, I had an old bottle of Espresso and loved it; however, the bottle stated not to be used in skin care products, so I purchased another bottle, thinking it'd smell as delightful as the old Brambleberry bottle I had. BIG mistake. Since I trusted that it smelled the same way, I made two big batches of goats' milk soap. Now I have two big batches of soap I can't give away or sell.

Hi Tracy! I'm sorry you were disappointed in this scent. You're right, our Espresso Fragrance Oil smells best after it has 'aged' and has been exposed to air as noted above. So it makes sense you prefer the smell of your older bottle! Our fragrance company uses real coffee extract in it, so when the fragrance is fresh it does have a sharper scent. If you give it a bit more time (with the cap off so the air can age it) this scent develops into a really rich, warm coffee smell. If making cold process soap the scent will continue to age throughout the cure and smell much better after 4-6 weeks. If you're looking for another coffee-type scent that does not require aging you may like the Turkish Mocha Fragrance Oil or Chocolate Espresso Cybilla Fragrance Oil.

Dante's Peak~

You know the movie Dante's Peak where the one guy says "" 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!

Great at first

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.

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.
