Complex Catch

I'm not sure I can say this is a unisex scent. It smells more like something I could see a woman wearing. It is a complex scent though, whose notes I can't quite pick out. I haven't used it yet but plan to in the near future.

I'm convinced this FO hates my guts

I love the aroma of this FO so much that I selected it as a free sample option and purchased the larger 2 oz bottle. In addition, a friend purchased another 2 oz tion bottle for me as a gift. I was thrilled to use it in a cold process soap last week. I used my regular recipe and brought it to trace before adding the fragrance oil. Everything seemed well until the next day when I noticed beads of yellow oil at the top of my loaf. I waited a few days after the cut to see if it would reabsorb, it did but left this yellowish discoloration at the top of my soap up to about 1/4 of an inch down. It looks as if I'd buttered the top of my gray soap. I was really disappointed but convinced that I had done something wrong, so I made another loaf of soap with my second bottle. This time I made sure everything was at room temperature and I added the fragrance to my oils and mixed it in before adding my lye water. I made sure I mixed my batter to thick trace before pouring into the pot to ensure everything was well incorporated. The next day, same thing. I really want to love this fragrance because it smells incredible. But alas, I can't afford to continue to spend the money figuring out why this fragrance oil doesn't like my soap batter. Were it not for this issue, I'd have been thrilled wit it.

It sounds like you may be seeing the start of the fragrance discoloring in your soap. The Turquoise Fragrance Oil does go completely to a brown color though that discoloration normally begins on the outside of the soap and moves inward throughout the cure. Your soap should be a more a consistent color after the full 4-6 week cure. Find out more information in our "Why Did my Soap Turn Brown?" blog post.

Birdie's Back to Nature

I received this in my first ever order from Bramble berry as a sample. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE It!! It is the perfect balance of Ying & Yang. I made some body butter and body spray and every where I went I was asked what I was wearing. It is my custome to try out any new products before offering them to my customers, but because I was on my way out of the country I didn't have a chance to to purchase more, and though I had several people ask for it I couldn't bring myself to share. Bottom line I never want to run out!!

Need to buy more!!!

I actually did not purchase this FO... A friend & fellow soapmaker gifted me a sample sized bottle of it that she had. I loved it at first sniff! My first reaction was, "Wow, that's a lovely feminine aroma!". Then I smelled it again & thought, "Wow! That's a fresh masculine aroma!"... Every time I smelled it, I picked up new & complex notes that finally had me deciding it was a gorgoues unisex aroma! It has feminine AND masculine notes that compliment each other wonderfully! It's a crisp, clean scent that smells watery (if that makes sense!). I'd heard (and read on the sample bottle) that this FO accelerates in CP, so I was curious to do a small test batch with what I had. I'm very pleased to say that I had no problems whatsoever with this FO! I used a recipe comprised of 70% hard oils, ingredients known to accelerate and a liquid discount, and my batter was JUST beginning to thicken some as I finished pouring a 3 color swirl. Keeping temps low & incorporating this FO after my colorants were mixed in at very light trace is what I believe made a world of difference in making this FO very workable! No longer fearing this FO & knowing how great it smells, I will definitely be purchasing it! The only thing I did not take note of prior to soaping with it was that it contains vanilla, so now I'm wondering if it will mess with the colors I used in my little test batch, but that's certainly something I can plan around the next time I work with it.

Upon first sniff, out of the bottle, I assumed it was an ocean scent. To me it smells fresh and aquatic. I love it. I do not smell any sort of grandmother scents what so ever. I had to give my review because I have no idea how it could smell like a grandma scent. I am wondering if they had a different scent poured for them? I am so confused.
