Summer Fling: This new summer scent from Bramble Berry is full of fruits and flowers. Smelling strongly of Raspberries and Peaches, this blend is toned down by the white notes of Magnolias, Lilies and Cyclamen. Not one to let a fragrance fall flat in the bottom notes, Summer Fling also has White Musk as a supporting dry down. This fragrance is sweet and improves in cold-process by the day. It smells better after full cure-time than it does the day after. Like a fine wine, it ages well. Light, fresh, spring-like and sweet, this fragrance is sure to please anyone that likes BBW type scents.
Note: This fragrance riced a little bit when we used it in a batch with 6 different layers. It's best for for simple CP projects only.
NOTE: This medium-flashpoint oil (198ºF) cannot ship via USPS regardless of the shipping method you choose at checkout.

I purchased this scent from the sample i received and fell for this scent almost immediately. I used this to make my body moisturizer concoction and it smells even better! Definitely one of my top 5 faves.
Back in the dark ages, when I was learning to make soap and we were stirring by hand rather than with a stick blender, this was the first fragrance oil I ever purchased. I was intrigued by the description and once I made it, wasn't overwhelmed. I put it away, came back, and WOW. Floral, fruity, a touch of musk and who knows what else. Now all these years later, I made up a batch just to see if I'd imagined how great it was then, and I have to say, its again my favorite. It does trace a little fast, but just be prepared with a simple design and you'll do fine. I haven't noticed any discoloration that can't be hidden by soft pastels. Mine is dark pink, green and white.
I agree with other reviewers that you've got to give this fragrance some time to show its true nature. I still wasn't impressed, but then I tried it in several blends. In one I used some single-note fruits, and in another I added my favorite green fragrance oils. I tried some combinations of Summer Fling with both fruits and greens. I loved all of them! I make primarily CP soap and lotions, but I think this would be great in linen and room sprays. I do experience some ricing in my soap, but not all the time. I can blend it out.
This smell is almost exact to an old Smith and Vandiver scent called Water Rituals. I have been holding onto a fragrance oil from that company for over 20 years since it was my all time favorite just to smell it once in a while. When i ordered Summer Fling, it smelled so close like it i threw out that old oil. This sent is so amazing. Its not too perfumey, not too sweet, and although it is feminine, all the guys that smell the soap made from this scent say that its beautiful and they would love it if their wives would use a scent like that in a perfume. If your thinking about buying this scent...stop thinking, and just buy it. You will not be disappointed.
