My favorite scent so far

This scent is amazing. By far my favorite yet and many comments from customers and co-workers.
disclaimer: I am still working through my samples so I might find a new favorite, but I think this one will be tough to beat.

This scent wows me and my customers! I typically strongly dislike citrus fragrances because I often associate them with dish soap, however, Citron Mandarin is nothing of the sort. It is beautiful, clean, strong, and refreshing. It is incredibly well received by my customers, and I am going to keep it in my shop year round since people love it as a kitchen scent.

I think I may have found the perfect citrus scent for a permanent home on my line. Behaved perfectly in my cold process soap. Definitely buying again!!

This smells so good. I used in CP soap and it performed well. No acceleration or ricing. It is a good strong citrus scent

Traces quickly in CP soap!

Because this is such a beautiful and lasting citrus scent in cold process soap I have ordered it again. That being said, if you’re going to use it in CP soap, you need to be ready for some slight acceleration. I managed to do a three-color design, but it didn’t come out exactly how I had planned because of the acceleration.
I feel this fragrance oil is worth any extra preparation and speed though, because of the fabulous unfading scent!

I purchased this fo as a sample and loved it. I then order a 4 oz and the fragrance is completely different. It smells for flowery than citrusy. Has there been a change to this FO??

Great Fragrance

I used Citron and Mandarin in my Honey Melt and Pour Soap. It smells so nice. It smells like citrus fruits. I used 1/2 ounce for 1 pound of soap. I wouldn't use any more, as the 1/2 ounce is adequate.

Air Freshener

I made soy wax melts with 1oz/lb, it had a strong throw that lasted long. The smell reminded me of air freshener more than a summer candle, though. That artificial note seemed to be a base note that lasted longer than everything else. I was hoping for something a little more natural smelling.

Nice & Strong in CP Soap

Love this fragrance! So fresh and natural in cold process soap, easy to work with and the scent holds strong, No acceleration, or discoloration. I tried the Blood Orange at the same time, and for cold process soap this is the clear winner, it can be difficult to find a citrus fragrance oil that holds strong in cp soap, and this one is great.

Nice Summer Scent

It's soft and not over powering and puts out a pleasant scent that reminds me of summer.
My customers like it!
