Spiced Mahogany: This deep, rich woody scent has notes of Italian Bergamot, Apple Wood and Tonka Bean to round out the darker, more sensuous Patchouli, Cedarwood, and Oakmoss. To keep this fragrance from smelling like a freshly cut wood floor, we've added spices of Cardamom, Vanilla Bourbon and allspice. This scent is one of sophistication and verve.
Performance in Cold Process Soap: This fragrance accelerates in cold process, and discolors brown.
Vanilla Content: 5%

I read mo st reviews, so i was excited about having a nice manly scent...well out the bottle....it smells like a grown man ....mature man....so i,m like okay. My mistake i believe was my soap base....it had mango, shea, cocoa butter...i dont think all those mix well together...it smelled bad....so i will be trying with a plain soap base....and hope that was the issue...
Kelsey from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Lorna! I'm glad you liked our Spiced Mahogany Fragrance Oil out of the bottle, though I'm sorry you didn't like how it smelled in your soap. We love this masculine woody fragrance and think it transfers very nicely to soap when used at 0.44 oz per pound of melt and pour soap base for a strong scent - found using our Handy Dandy Fragrance Calculator. If you're looking for other masculine scents, you may like Tobacco and Bay Leaf Fragrance Oil, Beau Brummel Cybilla Fragrance Oil, or Rustic Woods and Rum Fragrance Oil.
This fragrance behaved perfectly for me! I soap slightly above room temperature, and had no problems with acceleration or ricing, my two biggest fears when using a new fo. Will be using this one again for sure!
This moved very fast in my recipe (60% hard oils soaping at room temp. Love the fragrance but wish I had been prepared for that. Checked the site but it has no info on acceleration or pics of it in cp soap. I did read it darkens, so I did a white and copper sparkle mica swirl, well, plop really! Used a spoon on top and some glitter and think I managed to save it. It's in the freezer now since in my experience, fast movers crack. Will buy again but would have liked a heads up.
again, I use in candles. This is spot on for a man's scent! Let's face it. Most men don't like women's cologne because they are too girly/flowery smelling to them. But they do like mens' scents. I'm not sure why women don't just wear men's scents to attract the men??! Anyway, This scent in a candle tends to make the men 'hang around ' longer without them even realizing it. If you want them to leave, spray a flowery air freshiner. But if you like their company, make a candle with this. It does have a bit of a 'pipe tobacco' with some spices in it. Not overpowering though. Just real nice.
This has a great smell that every man I've asked likes. Make a note though that this gets very hot in cold process. My first batch was wrapped to gel and got terrible glycerin rivers (seriously, they were bad). My next batch I refrigerated to avoid the rivers and it STILL went through gel in the middle (and got glycerin rivers in the dead center).
As long as you take into account that this will get HOT, it makes a lovely bar.
