Cold Process Soap Performance

Light Tan

Lye Water Temperature 115ºF (46.1°C)
Oil Temperature 118ºF (47.8°C)

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.

Black Violet & Saffron

I love the smell of this fragrance, but it wasn’t strong enough after curing. I should have added more oil. Not too happy about the outcome.

Oh man. Let me just say this scent is great. It's a tad sweet, a tad rich, a teeny spicy and just oh so yummy lol. I personally love it. I know every one isn't the same even if you may not care for it. Your customers will love it. Go Candle Science!! It made great in soy wax. I can't burn then yet because they need to cure but ik it's going to burn great just by the cold throw.

Wonderful scent out of the bottle & as a candle

I personally loved it right out of the bottle, I didn't think it was too strong at all. We made candles with it and have sold out of every one of them and they have all gotten rave reviews. In our opinion it's not too floral smelling nor too masculine smelling, it's a perfect middle-of-the-road scent, and oddly enough it's been all men who have bought it. Tonight we've blended it with Caramel Tobacco and That smells heavenly!

Incredibly Seductive

This is one of the most alluring fragrances I have ever come across. It’s hauntingly unique. Every client that purchases a candle in this scent is blown away. It has a great hot & cold throw. The longer it burns, the spicier and deeper the scent gets. It’s one of my three favorites.

Complex and sensual

This is definitely a luxe smelling fragrance. It's a gorgeous violet forward scent softly cradled by an earthy sweetness. You can sort of draw saffron from this but not in a very obvious way. Like, you wouldn't blindly guess it but you get the idea once you know it's there. This fragrance is on the perfumey side but in a lovely way. It has a complexity and pairs well with other fragrances, though it can easily get overwhelmed.

When smelling from the bottle it’s very strong & not the greatest but when it is mixed with other fragrance’s it’s amazing. Such a different beautiful scent! My customers are loving it!

Delicate, Earthy Floral

I wasn't sure what to expect when I began testing this FO, so the results totally blew me away. It's a beautiful, earthy floral, with a light sweetness and just a tiny hint of rain. Smells even better than the real thing, and is actually one of my best performers in soy 444. Shocked this isn't more popular!

Literally the worst thing I've ever smelled

Sorry, I generally love and gets 99% of my scents from here but this is literally my least favorite thing on the planet. The candle wasn't even lit and the cold throw made me sick. I had to put it in the hallway. I also have no idea how they grouped this under "manly" scents, it smells floral and super sweet, like something a teenage girl would try to pick up from Bath and Body works to impress a kid in her class. Sorry CS, love you guys, but this one, no no no no.

God this is exquisite

I don’t leave rent many reviews at all anywhere. I had just placed an order for some fragrances for my candles and I decided to grab this as my free sample. The smell is so intoxicating, and I keep going back to it almost daily to smell it as it cures. I typically don’t go for a fragrance like this, as my favorites are usually in the fall pumpkin and apple, your typical fall fragrances. Usually food scents. And then again for Christmas, food scents and pine scents. This is something extra special, and I was able to make one candle and I will be saving this for myself. However, I will be ordering more of this fragrance since it smells like such a high end fragrance for a candle. every single time I smell it I think I say out loud “this is such a high end fragrance like no other!” Do yourself a favor and step away from your comfort zone and try this exquisite/sexy scent.
