Cold Process Soap Performance

Light Tan

Lye Water Temperature 118ºF (47.8°C)
Oil Temperature 105ºF (40.6°C)

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.

Just as I expected

First of all, let me start by saying this fragrance is a masculine scent. It smells like mens perfume. I mean, the description of scents are spot on. If you want to create something for men or mens line, then this is for you. I made some room sprays and this scent was very well received by male, female and non-binary genders. The smell lingers, it's very attractive, a bit of a coquette scent if I may. A friend of mine said it's smells like SEX hahahaha whatever that means. But, this is a masculine scent, very strong, lingering, sexy clean scent. I'll be making some cold process soap, hopefully this scent behaves.

Love the scent, just wish for more HT!

In a small space it does fine, but I’d like for it to be stronger. It’s a delightful masculine scent and a great seller. It just needs a little more oomph.

Honestly i was expecting a wet woodsy type smell. It smells like cologne, or after shave. Not a huge fan, but if your target group is men, this may be an oil for you.

Smells Great

I bought a 1oz bottle of this fragrance just to see how it smells, it smells Great a light masculine scent. I don't like heavy Masculine scents so this if perfect for me . Smells even better in my cold process soap I will purchase a large size next time .

I’m so disappointed with this one.

Cured 2 weeks in 464 soy. I lit it tonight… no HT. You have to be RIGHT up on the candle to get any scent from it. And that’s with wafting it to your nose. I had big plans for this one. Back to the drawing board.

Note- I am using wooden wicks but I haven’t had this issue before with HT.

One of my best sellers

This fragrance is definitely a crowd pleaser since day 1. Its a masculine fragrance but not overpowering. I prefer this over Black Sea.

I was really hoping for a more salty marine scent but this is cologne. It does have a lot of depth and would be a great for men's soap, but for candles.. it's definitely not what I was going for.

Axe For Men

Yeah, no. Do you miss high school? Specifically when the dudes got all fancy by bathing in axe? I don’t, those 4 years were borderline traumatic. This is men’s spray deodorant, and should be named ‘Ice Wolf’ or the like. Don’t do it. Everyone on here who said, ‘buy this right nowwww!!’, you owe me $2.92. Venmo me immediately.

Excellent Scent

When this arrived today and I took the first sniff out of the bottle, My brain automatically went to a cologne I used to buy my dad all the time for Christmas (P. Stock - without saying it out fully) I looked the scent notes up on P.Stock there are only like 3 that match this fragrance so why it smells identical to it I have no idea. but it smells absolutely amazing! it is extremely strong right out of the bottle (and there is nothing wrong with that!) I have another that is extremely strong and it's hard to mix with anything which is Leather, so we tried this with it to see, we just use Q-tips and put it into an air-tight locked canister waited 5 minutes and sniff The Leather still over powered this one so we added another Q-tip of it and waited. That time, it worked, and the two smelled nice together - so another thought on what to pair it with.
