I reviewed this previously and thought it wasn't the best. But after letting it cure for a couple of weeks I have changed my mind. This is hands down one of my favorite scents now and I hope CS always keeps it! Smells amazing and is now in my line. :)

Cold Process Soap Performance
Lye Water Temperature 110ºF
Oil temperature 120ºF
We did experience a moderate amount of acceleration but no separation. The batter emulsified quickly and within seconds of stick blending reached a medium trace. After 24 hours, we observed glycerin rivers had formed in the bars and the soap had almost reached a full gel. The soap had a pale yellow color and the scent was strong and true to the out of the bottle character. After 30 days, the soap had discolored to a light yellow color and the scent was a little lighter but remained true. Due to the acceleration of the fragrance, it would be ideal to work at lower temperatures and hand stir in the fragrance after adding any desired colors.
I tried this fragrance in cold process soap 2 weeks ago. It took a while before the fragrance began to accelerate. Once it started, it moved fairly quickly, but was still quite workable. (I emulsify the oils and lye around 90F before adding any fragrance). I will be ordering this again as it is a lovely fragrance from start to finish.
I really wanted this one to work for me. It smells soooo good cold. But unfortunately there's just barely a hot throw. I even put it in my small bathroom and closed the door to test, it's very light. I will probably not order this again.
Just received my cotton and iris FO and i love it! I thought it would be more of a cotton linen scent (more cotton) but it still smells fantastic. A very clean scent. I will be using these in my soy candles so I will update how the scent turns out in my candles.
I got a 1oz to try this out and I'm really glad I did! Floral and fresh and clean. Love it, and I'm not usually a floral fan. But the mix with the freshness is so nice! I tested this out in the master bath/bedroom and it was lovely. Great cold and hot throw in my 464 @ 10%. I'm going back for a bigger bottle. :)
It's a clean soft smell, strong yet not over powering. I purchased it as a tester but now I need to buy a bottle!
Such a clean and soft floral scent! I loved it out of the bottle. Has a great cold and hot throw. Love!!
Really like this one. Very crisp and clean. Very nostalgic smell for me as it smells like my mom when I would hug her as a child. lol
Fresh, clean, & airy... perfect for a small bedroom or powder room. If you are looking for a fresh Spring Cleaned FO, this is it. It is simple, classic with a universal appeal.
I have to be honest, I was really worried when I discovered "Cotton Tree" was being discontinued as it is one of my best sellers. However this reformulated FO is lovely and smells the same as it's predecessor. Thanks for the consistently great quality of your products, Candle Science!
This has to be the best scent I've smelled since jumping into candle making!!
I really like this. It’s a lovely feminine, light and airy floral scent. It doesn’t have a particularly high cold
or hot throw so it’s not ideal for wax melts or candles but works beautifully as soaps and body creams/butter.
