Major Change

I have been soaping with this fragrance for years, and the batch I made a few days ago with the bottle I just opened rings true to what everyone else has been saying. This is not the same scent. My last batch was made 6 weeks ago from the last bottle, and it was fine. Nowhere near the same and I have a feeling the customer that buys the entire loaf is going to notice. If it isnt broke, don't fix it. It is frustrating to think this is yet another item that I have to check off my list. There was no other Sandalwood scent that even came close to the beauty of the former version.

Hi Megan! I'm sorry this fragrance wasn't your favorite. We love the predominantly woody scent of our Sensuous Sandalwood Fragrance Oil and find it to make a great blender, as well as standing on its own. It was reformulated in July 2014 to be phthalate-free, so that may be the change you're noticing. If you're looking for other woody scents, you may prefer Mahogany Fragrance Oil, Vanilla Rosewood Fragrance Oil, or Rustic Woods and Rum Fragrance Oil.

Beyond Disappointed

I've used this scent in the past and it was great so I bought a larger bottle. Soaped with it 2 days ago, using the BB Fragrence Calculator, at 90oz I added 4.55oz of this scent. It was easy to work with and didn't discolor, but the scent is so faint it's vertually non-existsant. I used the same recipe for 4 other batches which popped out of the mold ater 24 hours just fine... it's been 2 days and this one is still to soft to unmold. Now after seeing all the current reviews I can't beleive BB is still selling this F.O. I love BB F.O., but this one is a total waste and a waste of money. :(

Hi Terri! I'm sorry you were disappointed in this scent. We love the the alluring woody scent of our Sensuous Sandalwood Fragrance Oil and find it to soap beautifully. The scent has not changed since it was reformulated to be phthalate-free in July 2014. Normally fragrance oils don't make your batch softer. Instead, it can be caused by the oils in the recipe, temperature, any additives, mold used, etc. Customer service has contacted you directly to help troubleshoot. :-)

A pale version of its former self.

For years, Sensuous Sandalwood has been a favorite of mine and many of my customers, but unfortunately since the reformulation, it has simply become weak and lacks staying power in cp soap (and lotion). Whatever the issues the pthalates used in fragrances actually cause, they sure seemed to add some "umami" for the nose. I am ordering another bottle, but only because I continue my search to find SOMEthing to blend it with that might help bring it back to its former glory.

Hi Kerry! I'm sorry you were disappointed in the reformulation. You're right, the phthalates did help the scents last longer, though most people prefer to avoid them in their fragrance oils. You could try adding something like Cedar and Amber Fragrance Oil to give it a punch.

Fragrance fades

Wholesale customers are now complaining that the fragrance fades to nothing. It used t be great and a good seller. I did not realize the fragrance had been reformulated. Although I understand why that happens it is the 4th time with Brambleberry fragrances for me and each time it has been a problem so I am always hesitant when I notice that has happened.

Surprised

I used this in mp soap. The first time it was beautiful smelled great then the same customer ordered more so I ordered more fragrance it was awful. I called and they said it was next to mossy fragrance so I must have ot the wrong kind. Received it again used it and added extra thinking maybe more was needed still bad only scent is barely Sandalwood in the meantime ordered a larger bottle which I am stuck with and a unhappy customer who doesn't want her product. Something changed in this fragrance from Oxt 2015 to May 2016.

Hi Linda! I'm sorry this scent was not what you were expecting. We love the deep, woody smell of our Sensuous Sandalwood Fragrance Oil, a straight sandalwood scent! Though this scent was reformulated in July 2014 to be phthalate-free, we did find it to still be very true to its name. Customer service has contacted you directly to help resolve this issue.
