Cannot recommend this

Out of the bottle, it smells amazing. A nice, rich, creamy vanilla. So I bought a whole pound after receiving the sample. Unfortunately, my glowing praise ends there. In CP soap, it both riced, and caused my soap to have the consistency of play dough (ie it won't harden & crumbles & is sticky). I tried it twice in hopes that the first was just a fluke. Unfortunately, now I'm stuck with 1 lb of useless product.

Hi Lee! I'm so glad you find our Vanilla Select Fragrance Oil to be a nice, rich and creamy scent! Though I'm sorry you had trouble soaping with it. In our tests and recipes this fragrance performed beautifully in cold process soap other than the standard discoloration. There can be other reasons for ricing / acceleration like certain additives, like milks or sugars. To find out more check out our Soapy Mess-Up Quick Guide blog post. Customer service has contacted you directly to help troubleshoot!

nutty/coconutty

If you hate coconut like I do, you won't like this scent. However, customer service was wonderful in their efforts of mitigating my situation.

Hi Angela! I'm sorry this fragrance did not work out for you but I'm glad customer service was able to help! The Vanilla Select Fragrance Oil is one of our most popular vanillas. Though if you're preferring something less sweet and more natural vanilla you might prefer our Vanilla Bean Fragrance Oil which is more of a liqueur type vanilla.

Love it but not for Bath Bombs

I want to give this 5 stars for the scent, I really love it. I love all kind. s of vanilla and this one is definatly a keeper, I've used in melt and pour and lotion bars and smells amazing. I tried it in Bath Bombs and the bombs smelled amazing, until they get in the water, then just turns a kind of chemical smell, I have no idea why. So now what I do for scents I will use in Bath Bombs is I put a few drops in water and see how it smells, I've had a couple others that didn't work out also. This is a good way to test before wasting a whole batch of Bath Bombs! BTW the Cream Cheese Frosting was perfect in Bath Bombs and I will try all the vanillas they have here!

Don't judge it in the bottle

This vanilla is absolutely wonderful! But don't judge it on how it smells in the bottle. In the bottle to me it smells weird and chemically, but as soon as it's put on testing paper or into anything, it smells wonderful. My favorite scent is to blend this with equal parts of 5 Fold Orange essential oil for a delicious creamsicle scent. I haven't tried it in cold process yet but in bath bombs and lotions it's absolutely amazing and such a great scent, and doesn't smell artificial!

Delicious

This smells amazing! It is a true, rich vanilla. I mixed this 50/50 with the Butter cream and snicker doodle and it smells like freshly baked cake, yum!
