Find out how much of this scent to use
This is one of those sneaky fragrance oils that smell just awful out of bottle. I mean really b ad. But~ I was determined t o use it. I used 80% of this mixed with 20% chipotle caramel in a cp soap. I unmolded and cut after 24 hours and it still smelled really bad. So bad that I had to move it to the back porch. However, after another 24 hours, the smell changed to a wonderful fresh cut pepper smell. It's been curing for 4 weeks now and it just gets better and better. Strong scent retention and just a really mouth watering fresh pepper smell. So, don't let this one fool you by the smell out of bottle. It's awesome and I would definitely recommend it!
There, I said it. It smells like dirty arm pits. Not what one would want in a bath and body product. This is my first disappointment from Bramble Berry, but it's a doozy! Waited fir cure to be sure it continued with this awful odor. Yup, stinky arm pits. Nuf said.
Tina from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Pat! I'm sorry this fragrance wasn't for you. We love the Green Salsa Fragrance Oil though it definitely has a spicy kick that can be polarizing! If you're looking for other green scents without any spice you may prefer Fresh Bamboo Fragrance Oil, Green Fig Fragrance Oil, or Clover and Aloe Fragrance Oil.
This fragrance has been a great seller for our shop, we are located in "The Land of Enchantment" New Mexico and we are known Nationwide for our Green & Red Chillis - this fragrance is "on point" and all of our Customers love our CP soaps made in green & red combination colors - we scored several "Home Runs" with this FO - thanks Brambleberry and Anne Marie :-)
I've ordered a dozen or so fragrances in the last few years. This is honestly my first disappointment. even after a good cure, it is overly "hot" in fragrance. Nothing I have made with this has sold. No one will take any products for free either.
Tina from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Emily! I'm sorry this fragrance wasn't your favorite! We love the zesty smell of our Green Salsa Fragrance Oil though it's definitely a more specific type of scent. If you're wanting to freshen it up and cut down on the spicy you may like it better blended with Ginger Lime Fragrance Oil, Grass Stain Fragrance Oil, or Pineapple Cilantro Fragrance Oil.
Well I have to say I've loved, or at least liked, all of the fragrances I've purchased over the years, until I hit this one. OOB it didn't agree with me, it didn't get any better in cold process after it cured. None of my friends or family were very favorable to it either, I can't give the bars away. :-( Glad I bought a small amount, won't be getting more.
Kelsey from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Scott! I'm sorry this fragrance wasn't your favorite. If you're not a fan of it as is, it works surprisingly well as blending fragrance. Try blending it with Pineapple Cilantro Fragrance Oil to help brighten it, or Grass Stain Fragrance Oil to bring out more of the herb notes. See an example of another bright blend using Ginger Lime Fragrance Oil in our Zesty Green Gold Process Soap Tutorial.
