We did not experience any acceleration or discoloration. This fragrance was very easy to work with and the batter stayed nice and fluid at a light trace. After 24 hours, we observed the soap had reached a partial gel and discolored to a light tan. The scent was very strong and fresh. After 30 days, the scent was still strong and true. The soap discolored to a tan shade while the gelled area turned dark tan. While this fragrance was very easy to work with, it may be best to work quickly with your design and avoid a gel phase to maintain your color.

Can't quite put my finger on it...

I don't hate this scent. It's interesting in a confusing way to my nose. I read a lot of the reviews and no one seems to pick up on the smokiness of this fragrance oil. It may just be me. It also reminds me of a lot of Palm Sunday for the Catholics out there. It is soft, kind of sweet-ish with a small amount of pine and for me, smokiness. I am a little underwhelmed by this one and what I mean is it has no punchiness. I can smell it throughout my house but I keep wondering if my husband is smoking some meat on the Traeger. I am going to try some suggestions I have seen in the comments and attempt to mix it with another fragrance oil. Maybe some bayberry and cypress? 85% of my fragrance oils are from CS so I have a plethora to choose from =)

Perfect and Nostalgic :)

A real blue spruce tree scent. Blue Spruce is a specific type of tree in the pine family. It is not a Christmas tree. All pines smell differently. I had a blue spruce tree in my backyard as a child and it smelled like this. I used this fragrance for my blue spruce soap but I would make more things with it in the future. Its a clean pine scent, but not like Christmas. Great scent, love it! :)

My go to fo

I don't use this scent for just the holidays. I use it all year long! I can't keep it in stock! It has a smell, that I just can't put my finger on. I guess, I will just call it Amazing!

Exactly the Pine Scent I Wanted

This is not a macho lumberjack pine. It’s a rather elevated fragrance which I enjoyed blended with Cypress & Bayberry as suggested and a little Orange Blossom. Smells like a coastal Christmas with a chill in the air and some damp ozone then.

This fragrance alone does not have that pine tree scent you want to smell this time of year. However when I combined it with "A Walk In The Woods" from another supplier it really bought out everything I was looking for and it smells like I have a real Christmas tree in my home. You just have to be creative and test to find what works for you. I like it and will purchase again.

CP Review Nice FO

I am looking for the elusive pine scent that does not smell like Pine Sol, is not too sweet, doesn't accelerate, and doesn't discolor.

You can all laugh now, heartily I would say.

I like this FO, but it will not end my search, it is a little too sweet. I believe for me it will be a blender to arrive at my desired FO.

Performance in CP, my recipe is vegan, no shea (accelerates) sodium lactate, kaolin clay, slow moving recipe. Soap at approx. 87 degrees for lye/oils, 87-92 for room temp.

I ALWAYS order a sample size with CS FOs, and test in a 4 bar mold with the whole tester, what that tells me is how strong the scent is in comparison to other scents, whether from CS or other, and it gives me an idea of comparative usage rates, and cost in my products.

I also always hand stir my FO and add right before pour for every batch. I use my stick blender only to emulsion. and check the emulsion literally under a magnifying glass. I use dispersed TD in oil and add to my oils and stick blend prior to adding lye solution. I remove/mitigate all the things that speed trace with a new FO.

With this FO, I found it to be ok at 30 days, I did not load at the max as it was so strong OOB. I wish I had used the max IFRA now, as I would prefer it stronger at this point. I do like to smell the FO at a medium level on my soaps.

There is little discoloration easily corrected with TD, although you will not get a pure white. It is a little sweet and definitely piney. I have had mixed reviews from clients, but this is their response, and I concur.

I also tested Mountain Pine, under the same conditions. 30 days later it has little scent in my CP. Mountain Pine is a little "Pine-Soly" OOB, but in the soap is nice. I think maybe a blend of the pines will be good, but I worry about Mountain Pines ability to hold on after cure, load was medium.

As far as how did they preform, using the above techniques I had plenty of time (both FO's) for drop pattern and hanger swirls, and had to wait to finish the tops. I could have easily done several techniques with moderate time requirements. It is NOT slow moving though, but I experienced no soap on a stick, or excessive acceleration or discoloration.

I am looking for the complexity and depth of a natural pine scent, and the staying power of a FO that can survive CP process. This one is close; I will be using it as a blender. I really enjoy the complexity of CS FO's. Thank you so much.

Please bring back the old one

I like the old version better. This new version isn't as strong and robust. However, I use it to blend with other oils.

My first pro batch

I ordered about 5 one-ounce fragrance oils to try out and once I smelled this I loved it. Smelled really clean. Reminded me of a scent I would use for bodywash. Which I guess would make sense if I use a pine smelling wash. I bought a 16oz bottle for my first attempt at making candles good enough to sell. They turned out well by the way - positive reviews by family and friends. I only put 4 stars because by the time I got done making them, I'm sick of the smell, almost reminds me of playdough at this point - but that's probably a me problem!

Very strong hot throw after 1 week cure. I used %10 percent.
