We did not experience any acceleration or separation. The batter was very slow to come to trace and would be great for swirling. After 24 hours the soap was very soft. We allowed the soap to remain in the mold for five extra days. Upon removing, the soap did stick to the silicone mold, and the corners did not come out clean. The scent was strong, and we did observe signs of a partial gel with minimal insulation. The soap bars did discolor to a light brown shade. After the cure, the scent remained strong, and the bars discolored to a tan shade. Due to the soap being so soft, a water discount or paper liner may help avoid damaging the bars when removing it from the mold.

*Note - This fragrance was tested at a 5% fragrance load. With the release of IFRAs 49th Amendment this fragrance can now be used at 4.47% to remain IFRA compliant.

This scent is perfect, so I’m sad to see it discontinued! I’m not sure what I’ll do to replace the sharp masculine scent…

My absolute favorite fragrance

This must be my favorite fragrance of yet. I made wax melts with them at 10% load in Soy Wax and the HT and CT are STRONG and lovely! The scent is amazing!!!

Everyone’s favorite

I bought this scent on a whim because it was on sale, sounded delicious, and was distinct from many of the other scents I was trying. I made a few candles with this fragrance blended with apple (which was great), but found that people tended to prefer this one on its own. 9 times out of 10, when I let friends or family pick one of my candles to try, they grabbed this one, and, even when they picked something else, this was in their top two. There is just something so approachable but unique that made this scent a crowd pleaser.

This is a top seller since the beginning of my business 4 years ago. I'm sadden to see that CS discontinued the fragrance for an updated version. Please, please, please let the updated version be just as good or better. I would hate to lose my loyal customers, they love this scent!

This is quite the scent. It is complex and provides a great cold / hot throw in 464 wax. Customers LOVE it and I do find it sweet, not cloying, but definitely sweet.
