This is a favorite of all of my customers. It's true to the actual flower. Fantastic scent!
I didn't have ANY issues with ricing or acceleration in CP. Because this was a concern, I used a little trick to help prevent it. After I mixed up all my oils and they were warmed to the point where I was ready to soap and just before adding any additives or lye, I put some of my warm oils INTO my fragrance oil (about 1:1 ratio). I then moved on to mixing up my soap, separating for colors, etc. Then I added the fragrance mix. The soap stayed very fluid, I had plenty of time to make a really gorgeous drop swirl! I really love this and I'm so glad I ordered a big bottle of it!
I have customers that want this in candles and soap. Now my family wants it. The smell holds up better in CP that some of the other popular fragrance oils that I use. So far no problems with ricing but I also just use a simple recipe in a mold. Thanks for another great product BB.
I've been looking for a great honeysuckle scent for my spring into summer line, & like others, took a chance on this. I have to say I love it, it made my entire soap kitchen & curing rooms smell wonderful after I soaped with it. I thought it faded right after I cut it, but 3 weeks later it was back & wow! Every customer I have shown this soap too has bought it. I had no problems with it & hope I can continue to buy this, as it might be my new favorite! The bars are beautiful.
The smell is excellent, and it sticks quite well. I have some bars that were made nearly 7 months ago and the fragrance is still sticking. Watch out, though, this accelerated in my recipe. The first time I did not use any butters, and I actually had to wait for the soap batter to thicken a bit. This time with the butters, though, it did move a little fast. Not too bad, just plan ahead! This fragrance is also great in blends!
