Not consistent, doesn't smell like vanilla

The first time I tried this, I ordered the smallest bottle and it seemed to work great. The second time, I ordered a larger quantity, and the product was not consistent to my first purchase. It smelled like pink bubblegum, and did not smell like vanilla at all. Very disappointed.

The Vanilla, Non-Discoloring Fragrance Oil is definitely one of our sweeter options. If you're looking for other vanilla you may prefer Vanilla Bean Fragrance Oil which is a bit more sophisticated like the liqueur or the Vanilla Select Fragrance Oil which is still sweet without being over the top.

Too sweet for me

I was able to get the color I wanted, but the scent is just too sweet for my taste. My SO likes it, but it doesn't quite smell like vanilla to me. I do have a plan for an experiment, but I won't mix it with any other sweet fragrances again.

Smells like bubblegum

I was excited to receive this fragrance because I love vanilla scents, but this oil smells nothing like vanilla. It smells exactly like bubblegum. And for some reason it seems to have interacted with my hair products and cause some lather.

Hi Brittany! I'm sorry this fragrance wasn't your favorite. We love the Vanilla Non-Discoloring Fragrance Oil though it definitely is a more sweet, not as realistic smelling vanilla due to its lack of vanillin content which is what causes discoloration. Though fragrance oils wouldn't affect your lather! If you're looking for a more rich vanilla scent you may prefer either our Vanilla Select Fragrance Oil or our Vanilla Bean Fragrance Oil.

Good scent

I like the scent but more importantly the non discoloring factor. I read that this was a "fast" fragrance so I should work fast but I was surprised at how easy it was to use with the slow moving oils mix for my soap, I had time to do a in the pot swirl and still had to wait for the oils to harden a bit to do a swirl design on the top of the mold. I suggest a slow moving oil mix as well as blending at lower temps to have more time to mix colors and make designs.

Disappointing

I wrote a previous review in September after I initially received the soap. I made 3 Shea bars and added only this vanilla right around the time of my review. While setting up my soaps at a bazaar on November 8, I noticed one of the three bars had turned colors. Another person commented on it being different. One week later, on the 15th, the remaining two turned.

Hi Wanda! I'm sorry this fragrance wasn't your favorite. In our tests and recipes, we've found this fragrance doesn't discolor. I'll be emailing you personally to discuss this!
