Black Violet and Saffron Fragrance Oil
Choose a Variant

A seductive blend of aromatic herbs, warm amber, and florals, Black Violet and Saffron fragrance oil adds mystique to luxury product lines. Gentle notes of bergamot and geranium fade into a bouquet of rose and violet with a woodsy, rich base of saffron with a hint of leather and vetiver.

Candles, melts, and tarts work well with this year-round fragrance. Perfect for a luxe spa line, Black Violet and Saffron is approved for bath and personal care products from soap and sugar scrubs to lotions.

Note: Black Violet and Saffron is too strong out of the bottle for the fragrance notes to be in balance. It should only be evaluated in a candle or personal care base.

This fragrance oil is infused with natural essential oils including cedarwood and vetiver.

Blend recommendations: Saffron Cedarwood, Lavender, Vetiver, Sandalwood

Alternative branding ideas: Saffron and Suede, Saffron Santal, Violet and Oud

Suggested colors: Purple, Natural, Gray, Purple/Grey

We did not experience any acceleration or separation. The oils and water were slow to come to a light trace and we observed the batter turned yellow. We continued blending to a medium trace and started to see slight signs of acceleration, however the batter remained easy to work with and poured smoothly into the mold. After 24 hours, the soap was too soft to unmold so we allowed an additional 3 days before trying again. The soap had discolored to a dark brownish-yellow and all but the corners had reached the gel phase. The scent was incredibly strong. After 30 days, the soap discolored to a light tan shade and the scent was very strong. If you prefer a lightly scented soap this fragrance could be used at a lower rate and still maintain the character of the fragrance.
