Find out how much of this scent to use
Grapefruit Lily: Light, romantic and airy, this fragrance is a wonderful scent to use with lotion bars or as a perfume. Of course, like all of our fragrances, it's great in soap too! This blend is heavier on the Lily than the biting notes of citrus and makes for an ethereal sensation! This fragrance was inspired by a painting by Dori Spector called "Grapefruit and Gift."
This fragrance is phthalate free.

If I could smell only one scent for the rest of my life, this would be it. It's amazing. My husband said he doesn't want anymore sandalwood. Just this. It behaved beautifully in the cp soap, too. But even if it didn't, it would be worth it. I can't wait for it to finish curing so I can bathe in it. Please, don't ever change a thing.
Love the fragrance. Sweet and floral. Refreshing. It did accelerate and I had to work fast, but I soaped at higher temps. Somewhere between 110-115. Can't wait to smell it when it's fully cured.
I love this scent, but it riced and then seized immediately after adding it. What was to be a drop swirl turned into a desperate spoon plop. By the time it was in the mold it looked like my mother's mashed potatoes---and that's not a good thing! I soaped at 113 degrees so if I use this again, I'll try soaping at a lower temp. I hope it turns out because I really do love the scent.
Kelsey from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Cindy! I'm so glad you like the scent of our Grapefruit Lily Fragrance Oil! Though I'm sorry you had trouble working with it. In our tests and recipes, this fragrance did slightly accelerate, though we did not experience any ricing or seizure. Often times, you can stick blend the ricing out, as seen in our Soap Behaving Badly blog post. This can also result in a much thicker trace. To help slow the acceleration down, you can also try taking 1 oz (basically equal amounts of fragrance oil to fixed oil) liquid oil out of your recipe and heat it up to 100 degrees. Then, add your fragrance into this oil. This simply dilutes the fragrance oil’s initial acceleration. It also helps to whisk in colors and fragrances instead of stick blending.
This fragrance is lovely! It is not overpowering at all and not too soft, that being said I did use the strong amount in my cp soap and it turned out beautiful! My recipe was very fluid and I soaped at about 100-105 and as soon as I put the f.o. in it did accelerate, but was still workable. I did an in the pot swirl and it set up a bit too fast for a good swirl, but still turned out great. The scent is so well balanced, very delicate, light, and refreshing with a hint of floral. Will definitely purchase again!
This is a very uncommon fragrance, so if you are looking for something to break you out of a fragrance rut this would do it. The grapefruit really cuts the sweetness of the lily to keep it from being too cloying. The lily softens the sharpness of the citrus just the right amount. Its really a compelling combination.
