I was gifted a bunch of oils (and other supplies) from a friend who isn't soaping anymore. I HATED Lettuce and Grass Stain when smelling them from the bottle but, I figured that if I was going to mess up a soap with an ugly fragrance, I should do it early on and not wait till later. I used .5 oz each of two earthy/musky scents to give a solid foundation to the sky high notes in the .25 oz each of Lettuce and Grass Stain. It worked out really well! I have 2 pounds of CP soap with a surprisingly floral, perfume scent reminiscent of the 40's. It is pretty strong still, 3 weeks into the cure so, I probably could have scented 3-4 pounds of soap with the same amount of fragrance but, I am very surprised and happy about how these two "terrible" fragrances made a pretty awesome soap! :)
I am shocked to say, this is a huge hit with my customers. I waited months to make this in a CP because I was undecided if people would like it enough to buy it. It preformed perfectly in CP, no acceleration or discoloration. It has a sweet, green and slightly floral scent. I'm still on the fence about the scent but if it sells... who am I to question it :) Looks like I'll be ordering more of this one.
I was hoping for more of a "vegetable" smell but this leans on the flowery side of plants. Still not a bad smell. Didn't discolor my CP soap but did accelerate a little.
I really liked this FO the day I got it and use it with another FO and liked it even better.
I LOVED the fact that it didn't brown. I am sick of FO that change the color and trace really fast. So much so that I wouldn't buy any thing that has vanilla in it.
But this FO did not change the color! Hooray!!! It did trace a little fast, but you can sill work with it. I would suggest to only have two to three colors, instead of 5 or 6.
I tried this fragrance oil for the first time in a Mantra Swirl soap. It appeared to accelerate trace so I was unable to successfully complete the swirl. However since I love the fragrance, I just ordered it to try again!
