So sad...

The previous version of this FO was my very best Fall seller. I figured since the name had stayed the same the fragrance would be similar... it is not. Breaks my hard to leave a bad review, but I can't stand this. Cherry cough syrup with apple juice. My fault for getting 16 oz right off the bat.

Hi Sarah! I'm sorry you were disappointed in this reformulation. This was done to keep up to date with the most recent Research Institute for Fragrance Material recommendations on safety for spice notes. So it is definitely less spicy and more fruity! If you're wanting to bring out more spice notes you may like the results once blended with our Christmas Spice Fragrance Oil. In the future if you're wanting to try out a new scent or reformulation before buying we have a great Sniffy Sample Program!

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.
