Disappointed!

Made a bath of cp soap and I have to agree....it smells like "pencil shavings". I used the recommended medium strength amount for my batch but, I am not smelling pumpkin or brown sugar as I did when I opened the bottle. I ignored the reviews too thinking it couldn't be that bad. I am hoping it smells better with time or I will be stuck with a batch of unsellable soap.

We choose all of our fragrance oils based off 6 week cure time so you may end up liking it better at that point. If you're looking for another pumpkin scent you may prefer Pumpkin Souffle Fragrance Oil for a sweeter scent or Pumpkin Spice Fragrance Oil for something spicier.

not pumpkin scented

I was very disappointed with this scent. I had read a review that mentioned that this scent smelled of pencil shavings once mixed into CP soap, I honestly thought that was silly until I experienced it for myself! Oddly enough it did smell like that. Initially I used 2oz of this scent into a 3lb batch, after not smelling the fragrance anymore, I decided to see if adding more would enhance the pumpkin scent. Needless to say, no pumpkin at all, although now it seems to have a butterscotch scent instead. Not bad, but not pumpkin at all.

Made a pumpkin lover out of me

Generally I don't like sickly sweet/ pumpkin scents and would never have purchased this had I not gotten it as a sample first. I made a small batch of lotion with it and it FLEW off the shelves. Have since bought a big bottle and people keep asking for more products scented with it! I smell more brown sugar than pumpkin, but it's a wonderful sweet scent.

Wonderful blended

I received the sample of this, and used it to make a gift batch of CP soap for my niece. I also used some Pumpkin Souffle fragrance oil - and OMG wonderful! Both of them are nice but together make the perfect mix for the Pumpkin spice season. I am a relatively new soaper and didn't have any trouble with the FO. I also used pumpkin puree in my goat milk soap, so any discoloration is part of the soap's charm and that Fall rustic look I was going for. Thank you for the samples - they are so fun to experiment with

Candied pumpkin and perfect pumpkin color

Rec'd as a sample. Definitely brown sugary buttery fragrance like candied yams or candied pumpkin, no spices. I don't care for it myself but my neighbor LOVES it. I used the amount recommended for medium strength fragrance. Did not accelerate on me, though I poured it all in one without trying to divide and swirl. Just removed from silicone mold a week later and the soap has "discolored" to a PERFECT orangey-brown pumpkin coloration.
