I see that it is soap safe but can the scent be used in body butter or beard balm?

Cold Process Soap Performance
Lye Water Temperature 118ºF
Oil temperature 105ºF
We did not experience any acceleration or separation. The oils and water were slow to come to an emulsion and it took a little longer than usual for us to reach a light trace. After 24 hours, we observed the soap had only reached a partial gel and the bars were discolored to a light tan. The scent was strong. After 30 days, the soap remained a light tan shade. The scent had faded slightly but remained pleasantly strong. The discoloration could easily be decreased by using titanium dioxide to whiten the soap. This fragrance would be ideal for a design that requires a light trace for an extended period of time.
I am so in love with this scent, inviting, mistrious, will keep you wondering. Can't wait until the 16oz is available again.
So I ordered this FO and my daughter was the first one to smell it and she loved it! Once I smelled it I knew right away this was going to make an amazing candle for my male customers. It is very refreshing, sexy and masculine but yet somewhat feminine. I love it!! Candle Science FO's are the best that I have tried so far for my candles. Will be ordering more.
I ordered this scent on a whim, didn't really know what to expect. It has become a favorite in my line. I have used it in wax melts and soy candles so far and the scent through is wonderful, both cold and hot. I am looking forward to incorporating it into a soap recipe.
I've always loved that masculine cologne type scent. This hits all the right spots for me for that! I love it. It puts of great CT and HT in my 100% Soy Candles and does even better in my Soy wax melts! This one stays on the books for me! I'm putting more in my cart as we speak!
I first bought this to see if I could use it as a replacement for another fragrance that the HT is too weak.
I added about 9% or 10% fragrance load to the candle and the Scent throw (both HT and CT) are incredibly strong. If I use it as a replacement fragrance I may go down in scent load. It kind of gave me a headache at that percentage that I had. Although maybe some people won't mind that it's so strong.
My boyfriend didn't like this fragrance out of the bottle, but he seemed to really like it once it was in Althea candle. He said it was Ozone-y and maybe a little Woodsy.
The fragrance itself smelled good. It is definitely a more masculine, cologne type fragrance. It may not fit as a replacement for my product line, but I may add it to a men's lines, or something like that. Or I may add Fireside and see it it will blend well with the other fragrances in my product line.
It smells great! Smells like cologne and is my most poplar scent!
I tried this scent out and was very pleased. I made with pillar wax (soy and paraffin)and used in a wax tart. After curing for 5 days it was time to test and was I pleasantly surprised. The cold throw was great but the hot throw was amazing. It has the scent of an expensive cologne. My wife came downstairs and actually thought I had used a new cologne on myself. I told her it was the melt and she said that this scent must be added to my line of wax melts. Happy wife happy life. Great job Candlescience. I'll be ordering a much larger bottle! Thank you. R&A scented wax.
This is an update on my previous review. I poured a large batch of this at an 8% fragrance load in a 464/444 blend. I poured my FO in at 185F, stirred for a few minutes, and poured into my jars near 155F. I’m using the same technique as I always do and it never really results in any problems unless the ambient temp in the room I’m working in is low, which wasn’t the case last night. I’m guessing the FO had binding issues with my wax because it got very grainy and was pulling away from the jar in such a strange fashion. I wish I snapped a picture of it before I fixed them all. I ultimately stuck the reject candles in the oven at 170F to melt them all back down again then set them aside to cool. Now they’re looking much better but that was VERY strange to say the least, I’ve never seen it before!
Either way, my kitchen smells sooo good. I didn’t have any leaching this time and my batch is looking like it’s saved, so will I stop using this one? Absolutely not. It’s too good to give up on.
Although the scent is nice (Curve for Men) the hot throw performance is lacking, even with a 5 week cure. I started making candles 16 yrs ago, so I'm pretty well versed in trouble shooting. Even in wax melts at 15% with a 30 day cure, the hot throw is a 6/10 at best. Sad business CS. I'd much rather have Cotton Candy back.
Love this fragrance!
Disappointed! Nice OOB but HT was almost non-existent.
I was sooo excited about this scent when I received it. Its smells great OOB. I actually love the smell of mens cologne so it was a winner for me. When testing I mixed it with another fragrance initially and received a very low hot throw. It's not until I started testing both fragrances individually did I realize that I have NO Hot throw with the Black Coral and Moss. I am so disappointed because now I have a 16 oz bottle of fragrance oil that has no hot throw.
Performs beautifully in 464/444, especially after a long cure! I plan on adding these to my summer line and letting my candles and melts cure for a month before selling because the hot throw is just immaculate and the middle and base notes truly shine!
Out of the bottle, yeah sure it smells kind of like Axe/Old Spice... but never, ever trust your senses sniffing a FO out of the bottle. In the wax it smells lovely!
LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!!!
This fragrance is AMAZING. It’s my absolute favorite for a masculine fragrance. Simply divine!
Disappointed! I really wanted this for Father's Day. Great OOB. HT was almost non-existent.
Hi there! I'm so sorry to hear you're having issues with your hot throw of Black Coral & Moss. A member of our team will be reaching out shortly via email to help!
This is a very strong smelling FO. Smells just like the men's body sprays that you can buy from the store.
I probably could have used 50% less in my wax and still had a strong scent.
This scent smells SOOOOO good! It's masculine amazingness and I love it! To me I think it smells like a solid dupe to the Noir scent from BBW. Keeping that in mind when I made my labels I named this scent Coral Noir. I used a blend that I custom make of 464 and coconut oil that I love to use(my candles come out perfect every time!) and was really strong. Highly recommend!
OOB, in the wax, cured for 1wk & lit that thang up! I could not smelling this fragrance when I first opened it. It smells absolutely Devine. Like a full grown, sexy, confident man w/some swag stepped out that bottle. I have it in my line & I call it Grown A88 Man & my clients love it!
I loved this one and plan on ordering a larger bottle. The name is pretty self explanatory of the fragrance, and it smells just as good in the bottle as in the product.
I never write reviews but i had to for this one because it's so popular and hopefully this might help someone. I loved this scent at first but after making a batch it gave me MAJOR headaches. I still love the scent of it but after a while of using it, it's like i cant wait to get away from the smell so my headache will go away. I feel like i would have to mix this with something or use a smaller percentage in order for it to not be so strong and in your face. I have to use a facemask while making this just to protect myself from the strong scent! This is a warning!
Everything about this scent is perfect!
This is by far the best smelling fragrance oil for men’s items. My Husband has always used High Tide (I make our soaps & shampoos) for his items until now! What’s High Tide!? This fragrance is strong enough for soaps, lotions, scrubs and I’m hoping candles also! Haven’t made a candle or tarts yet but I will be very soon! It reminds me of a cologne that I’ve smelt before, just can’t pin point it. Maybe Curve? The green bottle... Either way, it’s my Hubby’s new fave!
I had high hopes for this one too, much like the lavender and driftwood, it is straight men's cologne… it simply smells like a men's cologne you would buy at a drug store. I'll never be able to use this and it will just sit on a shelf to spoil. I wouldn't recommend anyone purchasing it if you're looking for something better than what your high school boyfriend smelled like doused in Axe Body Spray. This is such a disappointment.
OMGGGG this scent is amazinggggg. As soon as I opened it I knew it was going to be my new favorite scent. Everyone loves it. Pleaseeee keep this scent in stock. This is going to be one of your best sellers.
OMG! This scent smells amazing! I just love the masculine energy from this fragrance oil. It’s not overwhelming but JUST right! Definitely looking to purchase more once back in stock.
I got this fragrance because it looked interesting and had some good reviews.... I have to give it a WAY WOW. Way wow rating is when product exceeds expectations.
5* WAY WOW
VERY high end, masculine and sophisticated scent. This smells like an expensive men’s cologne. It is absolutely amazing!
Smells like axe body spray.
This is it. This is the mens fragrance line i will be featuring in my gift shop and online stores. Thank you SO MUCH CS! Ive been searching for YEARS and this issss the oneeee!!! (Going to also mix with other fragrances from CS to get what i like...but this is def going to be my big seller ♡♡♡) im already sold out and i havent even made all the product yet. ♡♡♡
I am loving the new collection of scents! This is another strong clean, musky, manly scent.
Amazing sold out on my second day!
Smells amazing on its own, but mixed with Oakmoss and Amber it is SUPERB!
I should have my husband write this review actually! He said this is his favorite scent next to Black Sea! I agree it smells great. Smells better then a thought it would. I think the name of the fragrance makes it sound unappealing though.
I bought about 12 different scents and this one is hands down my favorite! I even had my husband smell it and it was also his favorite! It’s definitely a sexy masculine smell.
Thank you candle science! I LOVE this scent! I am going to market it towards men in a masculine jar but ladies like me may like it too. Reminds me of an expensive cologne.
My old favorite was Mahogany Teakwood and I could never get close to it. This is my new favorite! Its perfect all the way around. High Intensity fragrance right out of the bottle. Can't wait to burn this candle and test. I'm getting total Mahogany Teakwood vibes but better!!
smells so nice and sexy. I definitely think it smells like a mix of black sea and oakmoss amber so its not completely unique but cant wait to test it. I think it would be a great addition to a masculine line
This fragrance is amazing and exactly what I was looking for in my masculine line. Please keep the masculine fragrances coming! A nice tobacco fragrance would be much appreciated also. Thanks for the always quick delivery and great customer service!
Katie is 100% correct, this smells like walking into Abercrombie and Fitch! No complaints there! Cant wait to blend it!
There are no words for this scent... sexy, manly, fresh, clean, dark and just perfect!
I don't know, dreamy is what I can say for OOTB. This FO is very nice and I cannot wait to try in my candles.
This is a game changer! Love love love!
You know that scent everyone smelled & loved & were obsessed with when you walked into Abercrombie & Fitch. THIS.IS.IT!
in the same boat as Black Sea, but softer and a little more gender neutral/less masculine-- can't wait to blend this with sandalwood or Egyptian amber. overall, a really pretty scent and I'm surprised by all the notes that it actually hits instead of being straight up "cologne"
this scent smells so good i can't even begin to describe. it gives me mahogany teakwood vibes, very powerful and strong. i know my customers are going to love this one. thank you candle science!!!
Just got my samples of all the new scents, this one smells AMAZING out of the bottle and I can’t wait to see how it does in my candles.
