Smells beautiful but didnt stick well

I really loved this scent in the bottle and out, but it just didn't seem to stick well in my CP soap, it was strong at first but then faded quickly, maybe because it's citrus?. I will likely use the rest in body butter.

Hi Leslie! I'm so glad you loved the scent of our Pink Grapefruit Fragrance Oil, though I'm sorry it didn't stick well in your soap. In our tests and recipes, we found this scent stayed strong when used at .8 ounces per pound of cold process soap (found using our Fragrance Calculator). There are several tricks you can use to get that scent to stick. Find those in the How to Prevent Scent Fading in Soap blog post.

Not like Grapefruit Essential Oil, but it stick in CP soap

I bought this because I wanted to make a grapefruit soap and essential oil just wasn't sticking. I made a batch using just the fragrance oil and it doesn't smell a lot like grapefruit - it smells vaguely like grapefruit. I will try mixing in some grapefruit essential oil next time like someone suggested. Maybe the fragrance oil will anchor it and I will end up with a more "grapefruity" scent.

Just awesome

Love this fragrance...especially when mixed with eucalyptus in CP soap. I had no issues at all, even as a new soaper. It behaved quite well. Ordering more now

Not a happy camper.

After reading the description and some of the reviews, I had great expectations. I am cranking out soap for my first craft show and the bars are gorgeous. Imagine my angst when after curing, I can't smell ANYTHING!!! NOTHING!!! Maybe a light scent. My standard scenting is two tablespoons per pound of soap. I plan on labeling the bars...lightly scented bars. I wasted my money and now I have to think of a bar to replace this one with. I rarely do reviews but I figured this was worth my time.

Hi Susan! I'm sorry you were disappointed in this fragrance in your cold process soap. We love our Pink Grapefruit Fragrance Oil and find it to hold well in CP, especially for a citrus. Some fragrance oils do have a tough time holding up in the harsh environment in CP and there are other factors that can intensify fading. For more information check out our How to Prevent Scent Fading in Cold Process Soap blog post. If you're looking for other grapefruit scents you may like Energy Fragrance Oil, Grapefruit Bellini Fragrance Oil, or Winter Grapefruit Fragrance Oil.

Can you make it without Phthalates?

I have been using this fragrance for my CP soaps & I mix it 50/50 with Grapefruit EO, the soap smells fabulous and my customers love it... but then I realized that it contains Phthalates, so I had to stop making it. Same thing with the Gardenia....I love the smell and want to continue using them, so can you please do something to remove the Phthalates? I am sure other buyers would appreciate it too. Thanks.

Hi Leng le! I'm glad you think our Pink Grapefruit Fragrance Oil smells fabulous. We love the fragrance too! It's been a customer favorite for years so as we reformulate it to take out the phthalates, it's taking a little longer to ensure that we are getting it just right. Very few of our fragrance oils contain phthalates and we're working to ensure all of them are phthalate free in the next twelve months. Though there are two types of phthalates! The Diethyl Phthalate, the kind used in fragrances, is also known as the "good phthalate." It has been tested extensively and found to be "not harmful," "not a CMR," "not a skin sensitizer," "not a skin irritant" and "not harmful to the environment."
