Find out how much of this scent to use
Green Tea & Cucumber Fragrance Oil: This fragrance smells just like freshly steeped green tea with a hint of cucumber. It isn't your typical sweet cucumber fragrance. The earthy green tea is the most upfront aroma in this fragrance oil giving cosmetic products a fresh and clean scent. This Fragrance preforms great in cold process without accelerating or discoloring your soap.

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.
I really love the scent of this oil, however, I am not sure why my soap feels so oily. The fragrance appears to have seeped to the top of the bar as it cured leaving behind an oily residue. I used the melt and pour base (along with the fragrance calculator). I am new to soap crafting, but I have never had this type of issue before, so I am not sure exactly what happened. I will be trying another batch because I really do like the scent.
UPDATE: After allowing the soap cure over night, the oily feeling seems to have disappeared. The soaps turned out fantastic!
In the bottle it smelled amazing of both green tea AND cucumber but when i soaped with it in CP the green tea stayed in the soap, but the cucumber was gone. I do like green tea but I'd rather have it smell like both the tea and cucumber. Am i doing something wrong?
Reply from Bramble Berry Hi Mette Marlene! I'm so glad you love our Green Tea & Cucumber Fragrance Oil! Though, I'm sorry the cucumber notes didn't stick in your cold process soap. We choose all of our fragrances based off of a full six weeks of cure time when the fragrance peaks and found this scent to still smell of cucumbers. I will email you personally to help troubleshoot!
