I tried this FO for the first time in CP soap and the fragrance completely disappeared once the soap cured. I have never had that happen with any BB Fragrance Oils. I used the same soap recipe I have been using for years, so it has to be the fragrance oil. I was very disappointed. I absolutely love BB products, just not this one.
This is the only fragrance I've ever gotten from this company that I did not like. I made a large batch with it that turned out great except for the smell, which after the cure seemed more like chemicals than cucumber. I've used the same recipe with other fragrance oils without the negtive results. I also tried it in regular Dr. Bronners unscented liquid soap and it was still very unpleasant. I had to grate and rebatch all of the cold process soap I made with it with a heavy dose of Morrocan Mint in an attempt to save the batch. I'm sorry BB, all your other oils have been wonderful.
I really liked the cucumber I got oob. But once in cp soap, it lost a lot of the cucumber. I found it very earthy, I liken it to raw pumpkin. So if you like how it smells when you carve up jack-o-lanterns, this scent is for you. :) I'm just not crazy about it. But it behaved wonderful otherwise, no discolor or accel.
I did up some new batches for a Holiday Market and included this one. The fragrance immediately made me think spa, so I named my batch Spa Day. They completely sold out at the market! I had one small, sliver bar left at home, and tried it out in the shower for myself. ....OMG.......I think I may have found a new favorite. Now I need to make up more and save some for myself!
This smells great in the bottle...but out of the bottle, in cold process soap....that's a whole other story.
In soap, it smells FANTASTIC. I was completely blown away by how good this smells. I had a few friends that didn't think they'd care for it. Then they sniffed the soap and handed me their credit cards. Seriously...just buy this. You won't regret it.
