Not my fav

This isn't the ale scent we were looking for. It's too sweet and smells like cheap cologne to me. Maybe it just doesn't work well with the pale IPA we used. Not sure, but yuck. It did accelerate trace but it was somewhat manageable until we got to the last molds. Then we got the typical gloppy mess.

With lots of fruity notes as well as honey and vanilla the Honey Ale Fragrance Oil is definitely more of a sweet scent. If you're looking for a less sweet beer inspired fragrance you may prefer Spiced Amber Ale Fragrance Oil or Oatmeal Stout Fragrance Oil.

Smells nice, but seizes when using beer

I used this fragrance first in a soap without beer, and it worked great. However, when I used it in a beer soap, I barely got it into the mold before it went rock solid. I had stick blended to thin trace, then added the fragrance. Before I even began to stir it in, it started to thicken. I was able to stir just enough to make sure it was well incorporated before it turned to makes potatoes. It might be a good idea to note in the description that this can happen.

Though beer can definitely be tricky to soap with and can accelerate trace, it helps to boil the beer to make sure the alcohol and carbonation are completely eliminated. For more help with this check out our How to Use Alcoholic Beverages in Cold Process Soap blog post.

I hope the strong sweetness of the fragrance goes away

I didn't really have a hard time with this fragrance like others did, maybe it was my recipe? Or that I was soaping at a slightly higher temp than I normally do and had a higher superfat than I normally do (was a tiny bit short on lye). I was able to thoroughly stick blend my soap batter with this fragrance and pour it quite easily. It took awhile to thicken up to where I could put any sort of spoon pattern on, so I just made a honeycomb pattern on top instead. The only thing I should've done was blend this fragrance with another. It does not smell like I had hoped it would when mixed with beer. Too much like cough syrup. Hope it goes away with the cure.

Doesn't smell like ale/beer

Maybe it was the type of beer I made the soap with (Natty Light), but the fragrance smells like a strong dryer sheet/fabric softener. VERY perfumey, which wasn't what I was going for.

Our Honey Ale Fragrance Oil was designed to be evocative of ale and work well with liquor themed recipes. Though it doesn't smell exactly like the alcohol. If you're looking for another option you may prefer Spiced Amber Ale Fragrance Oil or Oatmeal Stout Fragrance Oil.
