Find out how much of this scent to use
Salty Mariner: This is a fragrance reminiscent of upscale living. Salty marine notes and fresh rain mingle with lily of the valley, jasmine, leafy greens, pine and musk. Experience the beautifully mastered essence of the thunder of waves crashing against the shore, the salty air in your face and the soft crunch of seashells beneath your feet. Imagine yourself at sea, with your face being lightly sprinkled with ocean spray. Like an angry sea, this fragrance does have a more powerful side; it accelerates trace in cold process soap so be prepared for it to move quickly.

This is my go-to scent, especially for men. I soap around 75 degrees and use it in my soleseif bars without issue. I also do not have issues with scent fading as some of my 1 year-old bars still carry the scent. Love,Love,Love this scent!!!
Great out of the bottle and even better mixed with Kentish Rain. Made a fantastic MP spa bar with pink salt. Smells perfect.
I read the reviews and was prepaired for the acceleration, i usually trust reviews in that aspect. The reviews were correct on that. However, I have found that the scent didnt hold up well FOR ME. It didnt have a very strong scent out of the bottle but I was determined. Very little scent if any still holding in there after cure. I think in order not to waste i will use it in a shave soap, no real fragrance but a little something lingering. HA HA.
I really like this scent! Not masculine like I thought it would be, but more fresh and oceany. However, I knew to expect problems, from reading the reviews. I mixed the FO in with the oils before adding the lye. I also added my mica to the whole pot of oils, just in case. (Stormy Blue Mica) When I added the lye, it riced, I it was small pieces, looked like Cream of Wheat. I stick blended it a lot, which smoothed it out some, but it was still a little grainy. I soaped around 110-120. I'm going to try room temp next time, because this scent is worth it!!
First thing's first, "slight acceleration" is an understatement. This soap accelerated right before my eyes, quicker than any other FO I've ever used. A small amount of ricing, but most of it smoothed out. Now, if you plan on making this with multiple colors and a mica line like yours truly did, you're going to want some extra hands close by just in case. Have your tools and your plan in place for this one, folks. But, dang, the beautiful fragrance is worth it! All of the other "ocean" fragrances i have tried smell incredibly fake compared to Salty Mariner.
