We experience excessive acceleration but no separation. The oils and lye water slowly came to a stable emulsion but then instantly the batter turned into a thick trace. The soap now resembled mashed potatoes and turned a dark yellow color. It was quite stiff and we could not smooth it out. We dumped the soap into a mold and pressed it down firmly hoping to minimize any air pockets. After 24 hours the soap came out of the mold in one piece but the edges were not smooth. The center of the bars were yellow while the outer edges discolored to a dark brown. We observed the soap did reach a full gel and the scent was strong. After 30 days, the soap discolored to a dark chocolate brown color. The scent was a little lighter but still had the sweet caramel notes with a hint of popcorn.

Smells great!

Did not expect to love this scent as much as I do. It smells incredible. I could eat it. Made wax melts with soy and candles with coconut wax and I have not had a HT issue. It's not one of my strongest scents but you can smell it and it smells great.

Bummed Out

I LOVE the CT, but I am getting essentially no HT whatsoever. And I feel like the subtle one I'm getting doesn't smell anything like the smell I feel in love with out of the bottle. I did everything per usual with all my other soy candles, and I've never used anything but Candlescience FO in my business (love at first smell), and double checked all my numbers and variables. Any ideas on how I could improve the hot throw?

I read the reviews about hot and cold throw but that's not my experience it has great hot and cold throw in my beeswax blend candles. I was getting hungry for caramel corn while test burning it was killing me. :) This is in my fall line for sure.

No HT or CT

I had very high hopes for this fragrance I still had a bottle left from the old version and it worked great the clean version gave me no HT or CT I'm disappointed but, still glad I gave it a try.

Good cold throw

Great cold throw. It smells just like caramel popcorn. I use this in my wax melts. However, customers are saying the fragrance doesn’t last but a day. I wish there was a way to make it last longer. I use paraffin wax.

Hi Kimberly! Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts on our Caramel Popcorn fragrance. We definitely understand the desire to have a longer-lasting hot throw in your wax melts. There are a few variables that come into play on how long a wax melt will have a strong hot throw, and we'd love to hear a bit more about your process so we can better assist.

Good HT and GREAT CT

I am testing fragrances for my upcoming candle business and this is my favorite fragrance thus far. I'm not a food candle person at all and I really like this fragrance. I used 6% of the fragrance in a single wick 6oz candle and it is one of my loudest fragrances. I can tell this will be a top seller!

It's sssoooo good. I can't stop sniffing it! Haven't used it in my wax yet but I'm really hoping it does well because it's DELICIOUS. I'll update when I do!
