I bought the discounted version a long time ago and used it for wax melts which was great. BUT I just used the rest of my bottle for some cold process soaps and it was a disaster! I used a 2% ratio which is under the recommended usage rates. As soon as I put it in and mixed by hand (not an immersion blender) it turned the soap rock hard! I couldn’t even get it in my mold. I hand made some hand formed soaps instead. The acceleration was horrible! I love the scent but definitely not usable in soap in my opinion.

Every time I smell this scent, it makes me smile!! This smells sooo good! I plan to buy all the discontinued bottles :) but the new Black Sea smells almost the same.

Black Sea started as a seasonal scent with my product lineup but I’ve had so many requests for it that I added it year around a few years ago! It’s a perfect scent! I also use it in my Shot of Whiskey mix & it’s becoming a huge it in the combination of whiskey & leather.

My most popular scent!

This is such an amazing fragrance. It's a little masculine, but would work well for a feminine line as well. I absolutely love it, and my customers do to: it is my most popular scent. HT and CT work great in soy wax. I've tried everything from 6-10%.

Love this scent!

recently purchased this black sea because I was looking for something that was a bit more masculine. After reading the reviews (and because its such a great price) I decided to give it a try, and was very pleasantly surprised! The smell is great; light and fresh like a cool water type cologne. Its fragrant but not overpowering. I have given samples to 3 of my favorite guys and they all have approved so far. Rest assured that the ladies are liking this scent as well. Although its not categorized as a unisex scent, it does appeal to ALL genders/spirits. Admittedly, the CT was a bit weak but Im taking into consideration that this fragrance is light. The great HT makes up for that! I also purchased a sample of the NEW VERSION of this scent, and it actually smells very similiar out of the bottle!! win win! im sad that this is discontinued but i am very happy that the new formula didnt affect the overall scent

Love this fragrance and once i found out it was being discontinued i purchased a 5lb jug at full price. Now all the discontinued oils are on sale for 25-50% off except for this one which is marked down 10%!!!!! Not fair candle science

Absolute favorite CS scent

This scent is without a doubt my favorite scent that CS has to offer. I am beyond sad that it is discontinued. I will be stocking up just in case. I really hope the clean scent isn't a letdown.

Thanks for asking! For our discontinued version of Black Sea, it's not considered Soap-Safe, so we'd not recommend using it at a standard soap usage level. That being said, we did recently introduce a new revised Black Sea FO that's compatible with soaps when used at a 2-3% usage rate! If you'd like to use this fragrance in soaps, I recommend going forth with that.
