Find out how much of this scent to use
Vanilla Vanilla: This scent came about after a we smelled fresh Bourbon and Tahitian vanilla beans. We just knew we had to capture the intoxicating scent in a FO so our perfumer went to work and created Vanilla Vanilla. It features the rich dark sultry scent of Bourbon Vanilla beans with the sweet slightly fruity scent of Tahitian Vanilla beans. Holds up very well in CP soap but does discolor to a dark almost black brown. One sniff of this scent and we think you will agree that it's worth it.
Vanilla Content: 19.5%

I'm wearing this lotion right now, and I can't stop smelling my hands. It's sort of a smokey floral with soft creamy vanilla notes. Yummy and lovely - but NOT the rich vanilla I am looking for. But I like it a lot and I would buy it again.
This is my first time ordering anything from Brambleberry and I must say I am very pleased with this fragrance. I've used them in my Vanilla Lavender bath bombs and my customers really love the scent. The vanilla is not overpowering or overly sweet smelling. It's just a very good balance and you don't really need much at all. I will be ordering this again in the future.
I made the mistake of not looking at the cold press sample, but jsyk, it's DARK. what's weird is that it will start off clear? and as it dries will turn dark dark brown. Again, my fault for not looking at the sample. I'm giving this a low rating based on the smell though. My mom commented that it was like smelling sweet play-dough and I have to agree. It had a strong, not very vanilla, and unpleasant smell. : (
Reply from Bramble Berry Hi Skye! I'm sorry you found this scent unpleasant. We love the rich smell of Bourbon Vanilla in harmony with the sweeter Tahitian Vanilla beans! Though, because this fragrance is a vanilla and has a vanilla content of 19.5% it will discolor to a dark brown, almost black. It's quite normal to start out a lighter color and darken over time; a quirky feature of handmade soap! If you're looking for vanillas you may like Vanilla Select Fragrance Oil, Vanilla Bean Fragrance Oil, or Sandalwood Vanilla Fragrance Oil. I will email you personally to discuss this further.
I love love love this vanilla scent and I've NEVER been a fan of vanilla. My honey oatmeal CP soap with this scent is a big hit and the most requested bar from friends and coworkers.
I adore the scent of this in lotions and body butters, but when I used it in a lip balm it was bad. 20 minutes after using it, my mouth still tastes the like it.. the taste is like the scent + sun screen.
