Black currant tea was one of my faves and I was heart broken when I got the notice about it being replaced. I was so afraid it wouldn't smell the same and it does. I'm happy

Cold Process Soap Performance
Lye Water Temperature 90ºF
Oil temperature 90ºF
We experienced a moderate, nearing excessive amount of acceleration but no separation. We stick blended for no more than 5 seconds and the batter was at a thick trace. We were able to continue hand stirring to ensure all the oils and water were fully combined and the batter did not stiffen. The batter turned bright yellow once it came to a trace. After 24 hours, we observed the soap had only reached a partial gel and the outer edges discolored to tan while the inner area remained yellow. The scent was very strong. After 30 days, the soap had discolored to a chocolate brown color and the scent remained strong. We recommend allowing the oils and lye water to cool to room temperature before mixing, hand stirring this fragrance in at a very light trace, and choosing a simple design that embraces the dark discoloration.
I had a sample of black currant tea and liked it so much I decided to go back and buy a larger size. To my surprise it was discontinued! This scent smells identical. I am very thankful!
I was so upset when Black Currant Tea was discontinued. I was certain that the replacement wouldn’t smell the same as I’ve experienced this with a couple other scents here. Well, to my surprise, this is almost identical to Black Currant Tea. It’s not as strong but it’s close enough for me. Candlescience, you came through!
So, I was bummed when I received the notification about Black Currant Tea being in the lineup of discontinuations, especially when I ran to purchase some bottles before this new version would launch and there were none left. Well, I ordered a couple sample bottles of Black Currant and Jasmine and I am very pleased with how identical it smells to the old version OOB to my senses. In fact, the jasmine note does a little something extra to it that makes me like it even better. I am almost certain cold and hot throws won't be too off and look forward to testing. Thank you CandleScience - I simply adore you!
