This fragrance is excellent in cp soap! It is one of our best sellers for our men's line. The scent sticks well after cure and smells so sexy! It actually smells a tad more peppery in the shower than on it's own, but such a fantastic fragrance, Please don't ever stop making this one. It performs beautifully in cp soap, I can layer and do a swirl and play with the top. It doesn't retard trace, but it doesn't seize either. The only thing I would change is that it does discolor a tiny bit (not due to vanillin), and it does heat up in the mould, but these are minor issues and it sells out fast regardless!
