Cold Process Soap Performance
Lye Water Temperature 113ºF
Oil temperature 107ºF
Initially we experienced some separation which led to moderate acceleration. When we added the lye water to the fragranced oils, we found that reaching an emulsion was quite difficult, even with constant stick blending. After several minutes of stick blending the oils and water finally came together and we had a medium trace. The batter remained fluid at this point and stayed smooth while pouring into the mold. After 24 hours the soap was still too soft to unmold so we allowed it to stay for an additional 4 days. The soap had discolored to a light yellow color and we observed that the soap had almost reached a full gel. After 30 days the soap remained a light yellow and the scent was strong and pleasantly sweet.
This scent is so good! I wish I would have purchased a bigger bottle, but wanted to see if the other reviews were accurate. Once I’m finished with my 4 oz. I will definitely be ordering a larger bottle!
This candle is my best seller and It smells absolutely amazing!! Candle Science please keep this around.
This is one of my favorites! Candlescience has the best oils hands down!!
This scent was the reason I continued my candle making journey!!!!!!!!! Just after two days of curing the HT from this FO was amazing (I used 464)!!!! I have so many friends raving on this smell. This will be forever on my line.
This one smells SO GOOD! It is like a candied plum smell with a hint of floral. I adore it so much and will definitely buy this again.
Over the past couple months, I have tested about 25-30 scents from candle science and have yet to be disappointed. But this scent is by far my favorite and will be used in all of my products. I immediately ordered a bigger bottle. Please keep this FO forever. Love love love.
Wonderful fragrance oil. Smells so good and the throw is great.
Nice and sweet Fo ....will buy again....nice hot throw ☺️
I love this smell, can't understand why anyone would give it a low rating.
When you open the bottle of FO it smells so beautiful! We were so excited to use it for our soy candles. We went ahead and made so many as we thought it was going to be a homerun ... when we did a test burn we found out the HT is barely noticeable until you are right on top of it. Friends have said it would be great for those who do not care for over powering fragrances yet they would not purchase it themselves. I'd imagine this scent would be killer for soaps and lotions. Just didn't seem to work out for us in soy.
I had really high hopes for this scent, it smelt like nothing I’ve ever smelled before. Unfortunately the HT was extremely faint in 464, I’m pretty disappointed
Love this fragrance! Great on it's own or mixed with other scents.
Amazing OOB, CT & HT! One of my best sellers. Very smooth but not at all subtle.
One of my absolute favorite scents from CS. It had a mouthwatering scent,I cannot stop sniffing it!
I thought this would be more luxurious and warm smelling, but it is overpoweringly sweet. I don't dislike it, but I will definitely be mixing it with something less sweet to try and get a more neutral smell.
I really love this fragrance and it has been a hit with my testers. I have used this in soaps and bath products and it stays really well.
Smells amazing! It is a soft and gentle fragrance. I personally use 7% FO for this candle as it is light scent. I wanted it to be a little bit stronger scented than when I tested at 6%. With change, I had to go up one size in wick.
This scent hit all the right notes for me. It is tart cherry and plum intro, followed by a sweet and soft vanilla. I added it to my luxury scent lines. It did have sinking wax surface, but that's because of the parasoy blend wax, anything with paraffin will have some degree of sinking.
Love, love, love. Sexy feminine is what comes to mind. I’ll be using it in scrubs, lotions, candles, solid shampoo and conditioner bars as well as hair oil. It’s that good.
This scent smells so amazing!
A best seller for Christmas, people love this so far. You catch the soft sugary plum smell at first and its followed by a musk smell almost. It smells amazing.
I was excited to try a new scent, but there was nothing new about this scent at all. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a good scent, but I was disappointed to learn that I’ve already experienced it with the Black Cherry Merlot FO, really no need for two different names for the same scent.
I bought this after reading the rave reviews on the scent of it...and I must agree with them! Out of bottle, it is fruity with a hint of musk. It's like nothing I've smelled before, and I loved it. I saw the soaping results from the CS soap making, and was worried about separating and moderate acceleration. However, I did not encounter either one of them. I make CP goat milk soap, substituting all of the water for goat milk. I keep my temps cool, at about 85-90*F. I had plenty of time to color my batch after separating into two colors, one being white and the other a rich plum color. Did a nice hanger swirl technique and it came out beautiful. I really enjoyed this scent while working with it...it is easy to work with and the smell is so intoxicating!! I used it at 5% PPO....the scent is holding strong, but not overpowering. Can't wait to try this in lotion, too!!! I highly recommend this to everyone!!
This scent is AMAZING!! I seriously cannot stop smelling it.
This is one of my new favorites! Dark, sweet, spicy, warm. I love this fragrance. I use a dark purple and black color scheme with it, and it works great. Completes the project.
It smells SO GOOD. Easily my new favorite.
After reading all the reviews, my excited to receive the fragrance was above and beyond. When smelling the scent from the bottom, I was not so sure, but thought by adding the fragrance to the soap would some how soften the smell. Well....talk about the most obnoxious smell, that had me gagging. Even my husband said, what stinks so bad. Yep, it was the soap. Now I have a soap that I hate to sell or even give it away. I'm now stuck with a 8 oz. bottle of the worst fragrance I ever smelled. I not sure how I can ever use the fragrance, since it is so over powering! NO, I DO NOT LIKE!!!! AWFUL!
I like this fragrance. I detest fake black cherry scent or anything that evokes memories of cough syrup and this does NOT give me any medicinal vibes. I used this in a blend with roasted hazelnut and pear (other companies) and it’s quite stunning. It sells well and was a favorite among friends who sniffed my candle stash. Would buy again.
This FO is soft and delicate but has a decent HT in soy wax. The plum scent is more fruity than sweet, and the cashmere adds a bit of an upscale feel. This is definitely a keeper, and I will order it again.
This scent of this fragrance is one of the best I’ve ever smelled! Unfortunately, it’s a bit weak in 464. I used in a single wick for testing, CD 20 464 with 9%FO. It was too weak. I made a three wick for myself, with a 10% FO load, and it’s still a bit weak. It takes a while of burning to produce scent, and the scent is just a bit weak which I had someone else tell me as well. I love love love this scent though. Maybe if works better in other waxes or mediums.
It's a decent fragrance, however, it reminds me of one of those body spray perfumes that you get in those prepackaged lotion-soap-perfume gift packages they have in Walmart during the holiday season.
However I wouldn’t consider it to be “upscale”??? It smells good don’t get me wrong but after reading the description and reviews to when I actually received the fragrance and smelled it for myself... what it really smells like to me is the purple holiday scent from B&BW. I don’t know if they still carry those but they were reallyyy popular for a few years. You know the (super sweet) blue one, the (vanilla) green one, and the (berry) purple one. There may have been another color or 2? And I can’t remember the names of them but I feel like this cashmere plum fragrance smells very similar to that purple one. Though I’d say this one does smell of higher quality.
I choose this FO as my free sample and I am soooo happy I did . The smell OOB was captivating I couldn’t stop sniffing it ! The fruity note is fused perfectly with the musky undertones looking forward to burning when it’s cured . Future scent to the candle line ? We shall seeee
This scent has a fragrance that appeals to everyone. It's upscale and year round but I'm also calling it Cozy Holidays because it does have a xmas feel to it. This scent is selling fast.
This FO works GREAT in 464 wax before the curing process and even better afterwards proving a great CT/HT. Going to experiment with it in my C6 next. Can't wait to launch this one.
I can’t even describe this scent! It’s such a strong, yet definitely NOT too strong, and long lasting smell. Fills up the entire living room, and has been a popular scent with my family, friends, and customers! In fact, my sister (who ONLY likes tropical scented wax melts) ordered the last of my wax melts this past week, because she loved it so much! I had one 2 ounce melt that I had made (I use 16% fragrance in my melts) in the bathroom, and it lasted an entire week! I was blown away! I also appreciate the fact, that this could definitely be added to any Fall line, or a scent to to have all year round!
Smells just like prunes to me tbh .... the smell isn’t good at all to me I’m actually very sad but glad I only ordered a 8oz
I wasn't sure if I would like this scent but I must say I am pleasantly surprised. I like it mixed with one of my other scents. I would definitely buy again!
I received this fragrance and now it's my favorite and I have over 200 fragrances! This scent I used for soap and candles and ended making myself some. Its has a warm and and upscale scent like walking in the doors of a expensive boutique. Add the warm and upscale to a sweetened sugar smell like a very soft feminine musk. This would make a great perfume as well, I might be making one with this fragrance. It reminds me of the holidays sitting around the Christmas tree with you Cashmere cardigan on sipping a hot toddies and enjoying the warmth of the soft lights from the tree and sugar plum candies. Wow, not enough to say about this fragrance, I could go on!
I don't know if this is because this was so hyped up when it was released but I was expecting it to be better... so I was quite disappointed. It still smells pretty good and I want to incorporate this into a blend but OOTB it's just not my jam. Its very soft but I don't think this is necessarily a "holiday" scent. This being hyped up reminds me of when people were overhyping Frozen. I was so excited to watch it then after watching it, I felt so underwhelmed.
I thought i'd be head over heels for this scent but I wasn't a big fan. Still nice, just wasn't fabulous.
Like many, I now see what others are complaining about regarding the new “clean scents” formula. This candle gave me almost no HT in 6006 mixed with 4627. The scent smells great, but unfortunately I will now lose 12 candles that I made with this scent because its too faint. Same issue with Oakmoss and Egyptian Amber. So ill go back to The “FC” for my fragrance oils 😑
Cashmere Plum smells so good in my candles. The CT is amazing and the HT is even better. Love, love this fragrance.
The scent is beyond amazing!! I didnt even order a sample first because plum?black cherry? hello?! and it was totally worth it! Called this candle TRIP and its on my site! www.kandlewerx.com almost sold out as soon as I launched it!
When I first received this fragrance and mixed it in my 464 soy wax, I expected the hot throw so be light. After 4 weeks of letting it sit, the HT was just not there- so I gave it another 10 days and WOW at the difference! The fragrance filled up my kitchen and dining room area and my guests had nothing but compliments- even the men liked the scent and I sold out at a dinner party! The fragrance oils that I gave up on, I am giving a few more weeks because it seems they all have different setting times or I am mixing it incorrectly.
Thank you for restocking! This is going to be part of a blend that is straight up magical. Can’t wait! This HT and CT with soy is amazing. Mix at 185 for a few minutes and you’ll be set.
NEED THIS BACK IN STOCK ASAP!! That is how good it is!
If you're looking for a scent that's more sensual and inviting, your search can stop with Cashmere Plum. I used this FO in GB 464, and the CT is perfect, notable without being overpowering. I'll update my review after my test candles cure with how the HT performs.
I rarely call any fragrance my favorite but this one has a base and carrying note that makes it perfect for the holidays! It's sweet without too much sweetness with a very distinct cashmere aroma.
Please restock East coast (or any coast) because this stuff is gooooood. Well done. I want to just pour it on my body. Sorry if I made that weird but like, it is that divine.
I so badly wanted this scent to work in my coconut wax candles. It is lovely in the bottle, very light, but fresh, clean and crisp. However, I am getting almost 0 hot throw in candles. Maybe it's just the wax I use, but unfortunately, I'll have to move on.
I knew this would happen. It sold out so fast! bring it back Candle Science lol
Oh this Cashmere Plum smells wonderful. This will go into all of my products and will be sold on my website. I make whipped body butters, soy candles, and for my cuticle oils. I am super excited !!!
If you are looking for a scent that is more dark & mysterious, this is it!
Cashmere Plum is fantastic, OOB- I can't wait to put this one into wax and a body cream.
This is dark plum, not too sugary sweet and sexy amber kissed with citrus to brighten the scent profile. Love it!!
This scent is incredible! I bought a 16oz jar because the other sizes were sold out. But I am so glad that I did! This scent is sweet and warm and just amazing! A perfect fall scent and even year round. I'm going to make a few products with it including CP soap, the testing notes do not intimidate me! Let's go!
Wow oob smells great oh 1 day in wax I am so excited for curing time to be over.!!!
The sweetness of the plum scent boldly let's you know just how good it is there's a softness to it. But by all means not weak. Will throw great
I use Vybar 260 1 tsp per 16 to 24 ozs of wax
And 1.3 oz per pound fragrance
This is really fantastic but had to buy 3/ 1 oz bottles just get some so getting a pound asap as I can.!!!
Smells amazing, even my son loves it and that's saying something!
Love love love this fragrance.
I am obsessed with this scent. It’s sweet but not overly so and sophisticated. This smells like something you would buy in Bath and Body Works! It smells divine!
I just received this and wow, the hype is real. It's an amazing scent! I can't wait to add this to my permanent line.
This fragrance so far is a best seller for me. My customers love it and so do I!
I requested a 1 ounce as a gift with purchase. I received my order and I immediately loved the scent. Cashmere Plum is a soft, appealing smell. I can't wait to include on my website.
Amazing HT and CT! Ordering more now!!
Loss for words--amazing. The perfect year round scent although I will focus more on winter with it.
Cashmere Plum is yummy! At 10% FO and only a two day cure in coco so- it has a fabulous HT!! It is sweet, not syrupy... Almost has an exotic smell, not overtly predictable.
This is by far my favorite scent and I can’t wait to use it in a candle! It smells so feminine, I’m in love!
It's not overbearing, mild and pleasant. I love it
I love Cashmere and I thought this was going to have a lot of depth...pretty disappointed.
I love this scent. I didn't think I would like it I tested it and it's currently burning and it's a sweet plum smell that's not overbearing. Thankfully it doesn't smell like that fake concentrated perfume scent I was expecting it to!
This isn’t a bad fragrance but it’s also not amazing. There’s a nice balanced blend between the cashmere and the plum but I do wish the plum was stronger. I was hoping for a deep, rich, sweet plum fragrance with a nice hint of cashmere but it falls short for me. It’s just okay
This is an beautiful mix of cashmere and Plum without the cashmere overpowering the plum . I just love the smell I can tell this is going to be another best seller
