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.

Lovely!

Such a lovely smell! Fresh, clean, and powdery- a wonderful palette cleanser. Makes the house smell like laundry day!

Outstanding!

We are SO in love with this scent! It's a very clean & fresh fragrance that blends wonderfully with other floral fragrances. The cotton aspect of this fragrance is wonderfully light and truly perfect! We did notice in testing candles that the hot throw is tricky. We were, however, able to up the FO ratio to just the right amount and it works!

Great Clean Scent

This has great cold and hot throw in coconut soy wax and has been a popular candle for my shop. I also tried this in cold process soap and took note of the acceleration in soap. I was able to work a 3 color swirl, without feeling the need to rush. I compensated by adding extra water to my lye solution. Unfortunately, I did get some glycerin rivers, but it’s a trade off. The scent holds in soap very well and has been a popular spring/summer item. It does discolor a bit and I wish I had used a little more titanium dioxide to compensate.

LOVE THIS!

I absolutely LOVE this scent! The fresh and clean combination is perfect! I find this scent great by itself for my candles.

Soapy

Smells very soapy, it’s nice. But I would try using a smaller percentage in my 464 candle next time. Something less that 6% or blending it as other suggest.
