No my favorite

Regretfully I ordered a big bottle of this. The scent is not strong and doesn't smell much like lemons to me. Won't use or order again.

Hi Jan! I'm sorry this fragrance wasn't your favorite. We love the sweet and complex blend of our Lemon Verbena Yankee Type Fragrance Oil! Though it does have some extra floral and musk notes to make it more interesting. If you're looking for other lemon scents you may prefer our straight Lemon Essential Oil, Sweet Meyer Lemon Fragrance Oil, or Lemon Cake Fragrance Oil.

Smells wonderful!

Bright and lemony, This smells so good that I wish it was lip safe,lol! All the Brambleberry scents are amazing!!! This is actually what I had imagined lemongrass was gonna smell like, and I think I like this better😀

Love this scent/Accelerates

I love this scent! It is a very strong lemon with a kick. It makes you want to clean things. I soaped cool around 100 and added f.o. to equal parts of my warm base oils, then added my lye water and stick blended to emulsion, then added the f.o. blend to my colors and did a quick swirl. The top started to set up before I could really finish a design, but I really love this fragrance and feel that it is worth it. I added a touch of Zuzu f.o. just to soften the scent a bit, but it doesn't need it, it smells really good if you love a tart strong lemon scent. I only gave it 4 stars because it can be testy to work with, other than that I love it!

Just ok

Didn't wow me like most of Brambleberry scents. I can't believe the fragrance calculator is correct on this one. Only .16 oz per lb of cp soap? I used .5 oz per lb and scent still isn't very strong. Didn't have any problem with it but probably won't use again.

Hi Linda! I'm sorry this fragrance wasn't your favorite. We love the Lemon Verbena Yankee Type Fragrance Oil, though the results on our Fragrance Calculator are a bit skewed for this fragrance. This is because it has a very low usage rate for lotion, which affects the other settings' results, even though it has a normal usage rate in cold process soap. For a strong scent, we usually recommend 0.8 ounces per pound of cold process. If you found .8 ounces to be too strong for you, you can dial it back a bit for a lighter scent. I hope this helps! If you're looking for other lemon scents you may like Sweet Meyer Lemon Fragrance Oil, Lemon Cake Fragrance Oil, or Electric Lemonade Cocktail Fragrance Oil.

On the fence

OOB it's definitely more chemical then lemon but it has mellowed out even within a few days of curing. It's not my style, but other people seem to really like it! The only problem I had with it was it caused two batches of soap to sieze. It is known to accelerate trace - so I was already prepared and it turned out alright. I mixed it into a warm batch of soap at trace and also mixed it into a cold batch (frosting style) and both seized up. It wasn't a huge issue, but I would definitley reccomend mixing the scent into a bit of warm oil before adding it to your soap. (There is a Soap Queen tutorial about siezing - so check it out if you had a similar experience!)

Hi Christy! I'm sorry this fragrance isn't your favorite, though I'm glad other people you know seem to really like it! We choose all of our fragrance oils based off of what they smell like once cured a full 6 weeks in soap, so testing it in product like you did is always recommended. We love the sweet citrus blend of our Lemon Verbena Yankee Type Fragrance Oil, though it is noted to accelerate in cold process soap. To help slow this down, take 1 oz. (basically equal amounts of fragrance oil to fixed oil) liquid oil out of your recipe and heat it up to 100 degrees. Then, add your fragrance into this oil like you mentioned. This simply dilutes the fragrance oil’s initial acceleration. You can also add the oil/fragrance mixture earlier than usual. Rather than adding the fragrance at a thick trace, you can add it at the first sign of thin trace. Always hand stir the fragrance/oil mixture in with a fork/ladle and never, ever use a stick blender for problem oils. Lastly, raise your temperatures to about 110 to 115 degrees. This will help to keep your mixture more liquid than at a lower temperature. If it does start to rice you can try using your stick blender to help smooth the soap out as seen in the Soap Behaving Badly blog post.
