Salt Bars

OOB I was ambivalent but in my soap ~ WOW!! I LOVE IT! I'm glad for once that I didn't read the reviews first. I made salt bars tonight and stirred my fo in because salt bars are quick to set up on me. It behaved beautifully and so far smells amazing.

Hi Keysha! I'm so glad you love our Exotic Fruit Smoothie Fragrance Oil. We did find that this fragrance can accelerate your soap, but I'm happy your soap turned out so wonderful! This scent also discolors to a light yellow as noted on the product page. It's nothing you're doing wrong. I will email you personally to discuss this further.

In CP - Scent fades noticeably but is nice

I tried the exotic fruit smoothie fragrance in cold process soap - a peacock swirl with neon colors. I didn't experience seizing, separation, ricing or applesauce result. I got into a thick a trace by the time I was done, I was working with four colors in a slab mold, so I can't say if it was accelerated by the scent or just a product of taking a short bit of time to pour the colors, although i think I worked pretty fast. Anything with grapefruit scent seems to accelerate a bit. I put the scrapings of the "batter" into freezer paper and insulated it, so I wouldn't waste, and couldn't wait to use try it. After a two weeks, I used the it and loved the fragrance. I made the batch 5 weeks ago and revisited the bars today. There has been significant fading but I still like the scent and, since I already ordered it in larger volume, will try it again with increased amount in the recipe. I love the scent - just wish it had better retention. A little costly for how it performs.

Hi Jeremy! Thanks for taking the time to leave a review. If you found that this fragrance faded more than you would have liked, I would recommend using slightly more next time :). The general usage rate for fragrance oils is .7 ounces of fragrance per pound of soap, but you can certainly use more!

Fades in cold process soap :(

I didn't have the applesauce issues that others described - in fact, I was able to do a very nice zebra stripe swirl, though the soap did thicken on me. However, after a 6 week cure, I can't smell ANYTHING! I am so disappointed! I had my husband smell it just in case being around fragrance oils all the time has desensitized my nose, and he said that all he could smell was soap! I then took a bar in the shower with me to see if the water might help "reactivate" the scent, but still nothing :(. I'm sure this fragrance oil would be awesome in sugar scrubs, lotions, candles, etc...but it just did not stick in cold process soap, and I used the brambleberry fragrance calculator and used enough for the "strong" calculation (I think it was around 3.2 oz of fo for 51 oz of soap).

Hi Caitlen! I'm sorry to hear that this fragrance faded in your soap! We have always found this fragrance to give a nice smell, so I will be emailing you personally to help troubleshoot why this may have happened. Please look for my email!


Such a huge disappointment! I bought this before the last 3 reviews and didn't check for new reviews before soaping with it - my bad. It definitely turned to apple sauce and the fragrance oils separated out from it...I've got a big mess on my hands. I will not buy this again. Extremely disappointed that this was not in the description - especially when it sounds like it's happening to everyone! I am so thankful that people leave reviews - it really helps - when I read them first!!!

Hi Sly! I'm sorry to hear that this fragrance oil has misbehaved for you. I have been able to help previous soapers find out why this fragrance oil separated, and would love to help you as well! Please look out for my email.
