I received this item as a sample in a recent order, and all I can say is WOW! As soon as I opened the tiny bottle my first words were: "I HAVE to buy this ASAP." I used it in a small batch of soap and the smell is spectacular already! I wish I had more on hand to pull the scent through more, and I won't make the mistake of being short again! If you love sexy amber undernotes, then this is for YOU!
I had high hopes for this one based on all the oriental notes listed, but unfortunately didn't get any of them. What I get mostly is beets and dirt, not very "sellable" scent notes. That said, it's not awful, but it's not great either.
This might sound crazy, but I keep smelling a distinct note of beets in this one, and I love it! I really can't stop sniffing it. It's earthy and woodsy. I hope my customers like it!
I used this fragrance in CP soap and my hubby loved it. It performed well although it did turn a nice caramel color (just as the description warned) and the scent faded only slightly. I also gave some to a friend for her husband and she told me the next day that she keeps sniffing the bar and is considering stealing it from him. So maybe it's a man/woman scent. But it's definitely on my "buy again" list.
So I just made a batch of CP soap using Mayan Gold. It smells different once gelled; it's a weaker, yet most interesting fragrance. I'll wait to see if it gets stronger as it cures. We like it though. It's intriguing!
