Name should be changed to reflect reformulation

I reordered this knowing it had been reformulated but I figured it would still be pretty close to the version we knew and loved from before. When I received it I was very surprised to smell the new version. This is so completely different from the original. To me it is more of an interesting apple blend... it doesn't have even a hint of a spicy note and doesn't smell like apple cider either. I don't think it's bad necessarily, it just isn't Spiced Apple Cider and I personally didn't care for it. I think this should be renamed and noted as a different fragrance because continuing to sell it under the old name only leads to disappointment from those that loved the old version and was expecting that when they reordered. I love Brambleberry and this is the only fragrance I've ever not been pleased with, I think if it were renamed and the scent description updated it would avoid a lot of the disappointment I see in the newer reviews.

Hi there! I'm sorry you were disappointed with this reformulation. We miss the old version too! We reformulated this scent to keep up to date with the most recent Research Institute for Fragrance Material recommendations on safety for spice notes. Unfortunately, that did change the characteristics a bit, but we still love our new Spiced Apple Cider Fragrance Oil. Like you mentioned it is more apple, less spice. If you're missing those spice notes you may like it better blended with Christmas Spice Fragrance Oil.

FABULOUS!

I haven't smelled the old formulation of this scent, but I am in LOVE with this version. It's a very fruity apple cider, not too strong on cinnamon notes. smells wonderful. performed well in CP. took forever to trace. will be ordering again for sure. also it's a great one for blending.

Extremely Disappointed

I have bought this scent and it flies off the shelves. I am extremely upset that Brambleberry has changed this formula...it was the best Apple Cider smell ever. Wish you could just carry it and name it something different. Very sad day here for all my Apple Cider customers.

Hi Stephanie! I'm sorry you were disappointed with the scent reformulation. Due to the most recent Research Institute for Fragrance Material recommendations on safety for spice notes, it just pushed the usage rate on the original formulation too low to work well for soap. It definitely has less spice now, and more of a fruity based cider smell. If you're wanting to bring out more spice notes you may like the results once blended with our Christmas Spice Fragrance Oil.

Yuck

There was nothing wrong with the previous version of this fragrance oil. I could not believe how different this is. I am not happy about it and my customers will feel the same. I will not reorder it.

Hi Debora! I'm sorry you were unhappy with this reformulation and were disappointed by the change. We miss the old one too! We reformulated this scent to keep up to date with the most recent Research Institute for Fragrance Material recommendations on safety for spice notes. Unfortunately, that did change the characteristics a bit, but we still love our new Spiced Apple Cider Fragrance Oil. It does have less spice notes for this reason and more of that cider smell. If you're missing those spice notes you may like it better blended with Christmas Spice Fragrance Oil. If you're looking for other spice scents you may like Pumpkin Spice Fragrance Oil, Gingersnap Fragrance Oil, or Zanzibar Spice Fragrance Oil.

Medicinal and Not like the past

After smelling the new version, we changed our review. Not realizing the scent was reformulated, it smells very much like cherry cough syrup and very medicinal. The old Spiced Apple Cider was a huge hit, I wish we had read more carefully to the change in scent as this does not resemble the past scent. We added a touch of Red Apple to it as well as Cinnamon Sugar and it still smells very medicinal. Wouldn't suggest this
