Cold Process Soap Performance

Dark Brown

Lye Water Temperature 106ºF (41.1°C)
Oil Temperature 120ºF (48.9°C)

We experienced slight acceleration but no separation. We used our stick blender to bring this to a medium trace, which happened slowly. Once we began to pour the soap into the mold we found it was thickening but did not become stiff. After 24 hours we found the soap had discolored to a dark burnt orange color around the edges while the inside was a light tan color. We observed the soap bars almost reached a full gel. The scent was pleasantly strong. We noticed over the 30 days of curing, the soap bars eventually became a uniform burnt orange color before slowly discoloring to a dark chocolate brown color. The scent faded a little but stayed true to the out of bottle character. Hand stir in the fragrance at a light trace to allow more time to work and choose a design that needs a medium to thick trace.

Don't trust the OOB smell!

When I smelt this one OOB it was OK, but had more of a spice to it than I expected it would. However, after it cured in the wax OH MY LAWD it was creamy and subtly sweet (not sickeningly sweet like a lot of Gourmands) and had the perfect amount of soft cardamom spice to it. This one will be a keeper. I don't make a lot of "foodie" candles because I honestly don't like sweet bakery smells. This one is a perfect compromise to add to my line for those folks looking for a Gourmand. Thanks Candle Science!

My Best Seller

My customers love this scent and I do too. It's subtle but complex. It's smells delicious but also slightly masculine. Please never discontinue it

Light scent when burning, but really nice

This oil is so creamy and wonderful out of the bottle and I love the cold throw SO MUCH. I love it mixed with a little bit of sandalwood scent, Sea Mist, and/or Cedarwood Blanc (and all kinds of other things, really). It’s a nice neutral scent, but I personally lose the smell quickly if I mix with “louder” scents or actually light the candle haha.

Smells like cardamom and cream

Sweet sweet creamy cream. Soft Cardamom, not bright or fresh, more warm. I don’t really pick up any other notes. Not my favorite but It’s very nice. Sweet creamy and cozy
