Beautiful and True

True smelling Gardenia. This is a super fast seller for me. Be prepared - it rices like mad and sets up FAST. I can't do swirls of any kind. I ended up with perfect layers though! I soaped room temp and hand blended (though I had to beat it to get the ricing out). Will buy again and will only do one color!

Addictive Fragrance

This stuff is awesome. Per other reviews, it strongly accelerates saponification. To deal with this, I have found using high water (27% lye concentration) and < 105 deg F soaping temperature helps a lot. At 33% lye concentration you have less than 20 seconds. Finally, making simple bars with perhaps a bit of color "streaking", I found that mixing the fragrance in the mold with a whisk is a great way to reduce issues - buys you time.

Behavior as advertised

I had very little accleration, but it did accelerate. This fragrance definitely riced, this is the first time I've experienced ricing as a new soaper. I just solidered through and got it in the mold. It smells beautiful.

Not like the gardenia I'm used to

This is not a bad fragrance. The gardenia FOs from Brambleberry and Cybilla both smell the same, but they're not like the fresh gardenia flowers I remember from my days in Florida. To experiment, I mixed in a bit of bubblegum fragrance in my melt-n-pour, and the result was the closest to real thing I've smelled since. I hope the scent artists at Brambleberry can experiment further to get it down perfect, but I thought I'd share my discovery towards the right direction.

LOVE!

This is my personal favorite fragrance. I always have a bar in the shower and in the bath and it lingers well on the skin. It's very strong, so for a strong scent I use less than your typical 1oz per pound. I've made reed diffusers, lotion bars and cp soap. Performs beautiful in all!
