Find out how much of this scent to use
This holiday fragrance is based on a popular, mainstream candle fragrance. With notes of traditional cranberry chutney, this tartly sweet scent is supported by subtle spice notes, vanilla, golden raisin, cooking apples and musk and sweetened with delightful concord grape. Sometimes this fragrance will go blue when initally mixed with cold process soap batter, but color will disappear within 24 hours. This fragrance turns a yellow-tan color in cold process soap.

I agree with others that this is a wonderful scent, but my soap went from a beautiful flowing batter to a plop and drop in seconds, it also dicolored my soap that is now unsellabledue to the pea green yellow look. I added titanium dioxide to help with the discoloration but it was a no go
Kelsey from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Julie! I'm glad you think our Cranberry Chutney Fragrance Oil smells wonderful, though I'm sorry you had trouble working with it in cold process soap. In our tests and recipes, this fragrance behaved beautifully in cold process, as seen in our Fall Sweater Stripes Soap Tutorial. It does discolor to a yellow-tan color, as noted on the product page. While Titanium Dioxide can sometimes soften the discoloration slightly, it will not keep it from discoloring. There can be other reasons for acceleration, like soaping with high temperatures or certain additives. Customer service has emailed you directly to help troubleshoot!
I agree that this smells great in the bottle but I've tried in in bath truffles and cold process soap and neither product is holding the fragrance very well. I like the concept but wish it had better sticking power.
Kelsey from Bramble Berry replies...Hi there! I'm glad you think our Cranberry Chutney Fragrance Oils smelled great out of the bottle! Though I'm sorry you haven't been as thrilled with it in products. We love this tartly sweet scent and found it to be strong when used at 0.8 oz per pound of cold process soap and 0.48 oz per pound of bath truffle mixture, found using our Handy Dandy Fragrance Calculator. If you're looking for other cranberry scents you may like Cranberry Pomegranate Fragrance Oil, Cranberry Fig Fragrance Oil, Cranberry Sweet Fragrance Oil.
This FO smells great in the bottle but withered quite a bit for me in CP. I typically use a higher usage rate but it didn't seem to come through. I'd have to give this another go around but not for CP.
I used this FO in lotion and shampoo base because other reviews said it does not stick in CP. Smells amazing. I love that it is sweet instead of tart/sour.
I'm not sure how to rate this product because I'm not sure if the product is what is causing the problem. I have used the cranberry chutney in CP goat milk soap twice now and both times the fragrance is not very strong and the soap is VERY hard. The first time I thought I had left the soap in the mold too long. This time only 24 hours and it is so hard that it breaks when trying to cut the bars from the mold. Could this product be what is causing such extreme hardening?
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Rhonda! I'm sorry you're having trouble working with this fragrance. In our tests and recipes we did not experience anything like that with the Cranberry Chutney Fragrance Oil. In fact we found it behaves beautifully in cold process soap! I will email you directly to get more information on your recipe to help troubleshoot!
