windex smell in cold process

This smells amazing out of the bottle. I did a basic cold process recipe. I think I did it a relatively low temperature but it's been buring for 10 days and it smells very much like windex. Hoping it changes after a full size weeks. Maybe my temps were to high.

Hi Katrina! I'm so glad you loved the smell of our Apricot Freesia Fragrance Oil out of the bottle though I'm sorry you weren't happy with the results in cold process soap. We do recommend working at lower temperatures with this fragrance as well as keeping it from gel phase since it will morph or burn off as noted on the product page. For more information on gel phase check out our When to Insulate Handmade Soap blog post.

Not for me in CP

This fragrance smelled promising out of the bottle; fruity, soft. Made a basic recipe cold process batch and soaped below 100 degrees F. However, after cure it smells almost "chlorinated" to me. Not fruity or pleasant. Perhaps after it cures a bit the scent will mellow, but, as for now, I can't say I like it.

Hi Munimula! I'm sorry you had that experience! We love the fruity floral blend of our Apricot Freesia Fragrance Oil though we do choose all of our fragrance oils based on a full 6 week cure as they sometimes fade or morph a bit in the beginning. You may end up liking it after curing! If you're looking for other fruit/floral blends you may refer Rose Quartz Fragrance Oil or Blooms and Berries Fragrance Oil.

A Winner!

I used this fragrance in my goat's milk hand cream, and people went nuts for it. Even guys seemed to like it.

Why did I wait?

I've had this sample sitting in my fragrance box for years. Literally years. Yesterday, I was trying out brine bar recipes and since the batch was so small, I grabbed this sample. It seemed pleasant enough. I was soaping cool and since it was a brine bar, didn't do anything fancy with color, I just soaped cool and poured it at thin trace. The other soaps I made were strong fragrances so I didn't really notice this until a few minutes ago. Heavenly! I smell the apricot, but the freesia cuts the sweetness with an almost herbal edge. I'm very happy with this one!

Apricot Freesia... A hit!

I am a registered nurse and am always looking for a scent that isn't overpowering to my coworkers and patients. Recently I made a body butter with this scent and oh my goodness, it was so much of a hit that PATIENTS were excited for it! Now I have about 5 nurses and a few patients that have asked me to make this one in bulk for sale.. I never thought of myself as a businesswoman, but this scent may just help me sell, sell, sell! This scent is absolutely lovely and light, and mixes perfectly in BBs. One coworker said it smelled so good she thought I mashed peaches myself and added them in :) Excellent spring/summer scent!
