Smells great but seizes.

This fragrance is fantastic and held up beautifully in CP soap but seized up in 30 seconds flat. I would love to order it again but I just can't take the chance. Is there anything you guys can do to fix this?

Hi Candice! I'm so glad you thought our Tropical Vacation Fragragrance Oil smelled fantastic and held up beautifully cold process soap. Though this fragrance does accelerate in cold process as noted on the product page which can lead to seizing. To help slow this down you can take 1 oz. (basically equal amounts of fragrance oil to fixed oil) liquid oil out of your recipe and heat it up to 100 degrees. Then, add your fragrance into this oil. This simply dilutes the fragrance oil’s initial acceleration. For more tips on this check out our How to Soap with Accelerating Fragrance Oils blog post.

Scent faded in CP soap

This scent sounded so delicious in the description, so I was really excited to try it. I made a huge batch of CP soaps, only to find that now nearing the end of the cure I can't smell it at all. I'm very disappointed and wish I wouldn't have purchased a large bottle of it. I'd advise choosing a different fragrance.

Was surprised when I read the reviews...

I see many people had problems soaping with this but I didn't have any trouble with it!! I should say that I hand whisk in all my fragrance though for just that reason. I found out that stick blending can set off any questionably behaving fragrances. I was able to do a three color in the pot swirl and it turned out beautiful...not really any discoloration either!! I would say this fragrance got an undeserved rap for CP except that it does seemed to have become VERY light in my curing soap and I used a good amount (1oz.ppo) BUT I am willing to wait for full cure to have the final opinion on the strength of smell. Anyhoo I would say overall it has been pleasant to smell and work with!!

Tropical Vacation Fragrance Oil

This fragrance changed in CP. Smells so bad I have to throw the soap away. I am so dissapointed as I liked the scent in the bottle.

Hi Betty! I'm sorry you were disappointed with this scent in your soap. We love the fruity smell of our Tropical Vacation Fragrance Oil! Though, in our testing, we did find it lost its lighter top notes in cold process soap. If you're looking for other tropical scents you may like Pineapple Papaya Fragrance Oil, Island Escape Fragrance Oil, or Tropical Punch Fragrance Oil.

Sweet tarts

I was disapointed that this smelled more like sweet tarts. No mango,pineapple or coconut.
