Horrible acceleration

I'm so so disappointed with this fragrance oil. It completely caused my soap batch to rice and batch up. I had read the reviews and thought I was prepared for the quick trace but I wasn't fast enough. I tried to rebatch, but since I use goat milk, the rebatch turned an ugly brown and the smell was not the pleasant gardenia I had hoped for. It was a 5# batch, and regretfully, I lost quite a bit of money since I won't be able to sell the soap.

My favorite all time scent

I love everything Gardenia. This FO definitely accelerates & have had occasional ricing. I Soap at about 80-85 degrees which gives me about 30 seconds to work with it. So just be prepared & move, move, move! It is so worth it though. I also use it in lotion & body spray to make a Gardenia set.

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.
