Beautiful scent!

I loved this scent as soon as I opened the bottle, and I'm so sad to hear that Brambleberry is discontinuing it! The smell is warm and lovely, and it quickly became popular even with my more picky family members. It seems ridiculous to only sell it in such excessive quantities, but I guess I'll just have to stock up before it's discontinued.

Smells Delicious!

I soaped at very low temperatures (70degreesF). Smelled just like how I imagined it! My friends and family enjoyed the smell too! The cold process soap I made with it though was very soft and took weeks to harden, and it never hardened all the way through. I re-batched it, and it was much more manageable.

Hi Simone! I'm so glad you like this fragrance! If your soap has a lot of soft oils, like olive oil, it can take longer to unmold and harden. Adding more hard oils, like coconut and palm oil, can help make your bars firmer. Adding 1 tsp. of sodium lactate per pound of oils to your cooled lye water helps create a firmer bar as well! You can read more in the Sunday Night Spotlight: Sodium Lactate post. I'll be emailing you personally to talk more.

I Love this Fragrance Oil!

Made this for the first time this year in CP soap. Worked fabulously - had no problem with seizing. I LOVE the scent. It is similar to the original Feliz Navidad, maybe a little fruitier. I think it is my favorite scent this year. I cannot understand why it was a poor seller - it is a really fantastic scent. I will have to make another order soon before it becomes discontinued!

Amazing in CP!

I love this spiced apple cider scent. I prepared my work area thoroughly, anticipating this fragrance to be fast moving in CP soap. I soaped at around 70 degrees for both lye water and oils and it was beautiful to work with. I did not experience any seizing or ricing. In fact, I was able to texture the top with creamy swirls before I set it aside. A little goes a long way with this fragrance - I stuck with a middle amount of fragrance per the fragrance oil calculator and the scent was quite strong in my CP soap and has remained strong 10 months later. I highly recommend giving this scent a try - especially if you love warm apple cider!

Smells more like bubblegum to me

I purchased this fragrance after reading several posts about how wonderful it was and smelling it first hand at a craft show and thought it smelled great! I soaped it in cp and, to me, it smells just like bubblegum. I do not get any spicy notes at all in it. It did not accelerate trace and I was able to do a 3 color in the pot swirl and 3 days later, the batch is still too soft to unmold. I am going to give it a good cure and re-evaluate. Seems to stick well as I can smell it just walking up to the mold sitting on my kitchen counter.

Hi Haven, if this fragrance was not your favorite and are looking for something spicier, I would recommend the Arabian Spice Fragrance Oil, Spiced Cider Fragrance Oil,or the Christmas Spice Fragrance Oil.
