We did not experience acceleration or separation. The soap batter turned bright yellow when it reached an emulsion. After 24 hours the color became tan, and the scent was strong. After a 30 day cure, the soap turned brown and was a sweet cranberry scent. If adding color, it would be ideal to reserve a small amount of soap on the side before adding fragrance. The batter stays fluid long enough to create various swirl patterns.

One of my Favorites!

I love this fragrance SO much!!
It is fresh enough to be in my candle line all year long and Christmassy enough to be one of the best sellers during the winter holidays.
If I could only have one winter scent this would be it.

I don't know about this one

I really can't decide if I hate this scent or if it's just not for me... I do understand where people are saying it smells like cough medicine. OOB it has a very familiar scent to it, not sure if it is 100% cough medicine but its something familiar lol.. It is just okay. To me, it kind of smells like a cheap scented candle that you'd buy at the dollar store or something & I feel like it would get worse when you burn it. Maybe I am doing something wrong or did too much FO in my candle. I will update if I am pleasantly surprised & change my mind when I get some burn time in it.

Totally loving it

Cranberry Woods. One of my favorites! I use for soap, candles and little felted balls in my clothes drawers. I have so many different FOs from CS but never enough cranberry woods.

Cough syrup

Cough syrup with cinnamon. I actually gagged when I sniffed. I don’t know where you can get cranberries from this. Disappointed.

One of the best in 464!

LOVE this scent, and so do our customers. Excellent hot and cold throw in 464, and y'all know that's not always easy in 100% soy! Ages quickly and well over time. A permanent addition. For Christmas, add a touch of White Birch. Awesome around the Christmas tree!

Best Seller and personal favorite!

Idk if I've ever left a review for this, but as I'm coming back to check the stock levels, I figured I should leave one!
I've never smelled the BBW one so I can't really compare it to that like others have, but when I say this is my favorite FO... dude. It is SO GOOD. I have a customer from out of state who regularly orders several candles and wax melts in this scent because she's so obsessed and my husband even requested a flameless candle of it to sit on his desk at work because he loves it so much!
It is so juicy, I want to eat it. When I smell it, I almost feel like I'm chewing a gummy candy that tastes like it! (I know that sounds weird, but its the best way I can describe it)
I HIGHLY recommend this one!! I bet it would mix well with something more woodsy too if you're really looking for that wintery pine note to take the forefront :)

BEST SCENT

I am obsessed with this scent. Made a ton of candles and wax melts but now need to wait for it to come back in stock for a bigger size so i can make soaps!! Absolutely love love love !

I was very surprised how this scent worked in soap after reading the reviews. It behaved very well and am so glad I tried it. The scent is amazing so far. I can hardly wait to see what it smells like after cure.

Disappointing

I love Bath and Body Works’ Cranberry Woods and Frosted Cranberry candles, so I was looking forward to using this scent to make my own cranberry scented candles. Unfortunately, both my wife and I think this one smells like cough syrup, at least in the bottle. I’m honestly not willing to make a batch of candles with it, even though it might smell better once in candle form. Oh well!

Mixed with White Birch in soy wax candles

I had read that Cranberry was a favorite holiday scent around where I live so I could not resist buying this scent for candles as gifts. I was not a fan of the scent OOB so I mixed it with White Birch and it makes you feel like you are sitting at Christmas dinner, where there is a live pine tree nearby, and the cranberry pie just came out of the oven. I am not a real fan of fruity scents but for some reason this and the Black Currant Absinthe CS has do it for me. Like I said, the Cranberry Woods and White Birch together are a definite Christmas scent. Sorry, I will not tell you the proportion I used of each to make that scent that smells like a dining room table on Christmas night. I just winged it!
