We did not experience acceleration or separation. After 24 hours the soap was brown and had a mild odor. The soap did start to gel with minimal insulation. After 30 days the soap was very dark brown and was stronger than after the initial cut.

A favorite

I have used this fragrance as my vanilla because I really didn’t care for the other vanilla fragrances that are available. It has a very pleasant yummy sweet vanilla scent. As cake it does not sell but with a clever name that includes vanilla it sells and is requested by repeat buyers. I use it in paraffin wax and the scent is strong. I saw that it has a lower rating so had to write a review. Please don’t discontinue this one!

Yum yum!!

I’m not sure why this fragrance oil got such a low review score. I ordered a sample and absolutely am in love with it. This is a very spot on cake sense and I think even if you don’t like it on its own, you could mix it for other yummy cakey treats.

I think it would be brilliant in a body, sugar, scrub, candle, melts, candle, or even a body lotion!

I am purchasing a 16 ounce bottle today. I am sold!

The Best

Cake smells so good it makes my nose cry. Stunned my coworker at first sniff when I gave him a 3-wick made with Cake & he said I should be selling this. I am motivated to try more candlescience fragrances but I have a feeling I'm going to end up wanting Cake above all else.
