Tobacco & Bay Leaf Fragrance Oil: Top notes of bay leaf and fir needle mingle with cedarwood and crisp bergamot to reveal a warm tobacco base note. The fragrance has a fresh, clean aroma with well-balanced natural notes. This masculine scent is the perfect addition to a father's day shaving soap or an everyday body wash.
Performance In Cold Process Soap: This fragrance doesn't accelerate, but does discolor to a light beige in cold process soap.
Flash Point: This medium-flashpoint oil (188ºF) cannot ship via USPS regardless of the shipping method you choose at checkout.

I wanted to love this fragrance because so many people here gave it high marks. OOB it was pretty good. Now that my CP soap has been curing on the rack for 3 weeks, the scent has faded dramatically and kinda smells faintly of wood. I'm super disappointed.
I almost wasn't going to write this, but the smell after soaping was nothing like it smelled in the bottle. I smelled hamster chips. I was so bummed. I used the same soap recipe as I use in almost all my batches. If anything, BB FOs usually smell better after soaping, not worse.
My husband said I should name my soap "Crazy Good Things Happen". This is a manly man smelling FO. Not a prissy fragrance, more like a hot guy wearing nothing but a kilt getting ready to dive into a mountain river to catch trout with his teeth before he builds you your dream cabin fragrance. Yeah, it's that good.
This is one of my absolute favorite FOs!!! Used in a 30/30/30 recipe it seemed to decelerate. I just used it in a recipe w/ tallow and it was thicker. I suspect it was the tallow...
I think this is my favorite from Brambleberry so far. Right up front it is very clean, almost ozonic and then fades into a wonderful aroma of a woodworking shop with a subtle spiciness. I rank it right up with (maybe better than) their "Black tea", "Sensuous sandalwood" and the "Musk cybilla" as far as men's fragrances go.
I haven't soaped with it yet, just tested it on a fragrance strip, but I am really impressed so far!
