Not the easiest FO I've worked with, but the scent is worth it! This is such a beautiful depthy-green aroma! It's crisp, botanical & refreshing, like an excellent bamboo aroma should be, but at its base lies a lovely complexity that makes it so unique from others I've smelled! This is such a true, authentic, organic aroma, and the scent is wonderfully strong in my soap! There are tricks one should implement when soaping with this FO though. Let it be known however, that I did NOT use a slow-moving recipe, and did utilize a steep liquid discount (1.5:1), so this may be more workable in more forgiving recipes! For me, the only issues I ran into were moderate acceleration (still workable), and moderate ricing (was able to hand-stir back to smooth), but was able to execute a 3 color ITP swirl with no major problems I couldn't work around. The key was soaping at room-temp, and only blending just to emulsion. My accent colors I left unscented, and only added the FO to my main color. I quickly hand-stirred it in, then didn't hesitate to incorporate my remaining colors and immediately pour. You don't want to take your time with this FO, but if you keep your design simple, your temps low and walk away from the stick blender, you'll be A-OK, and the end result will be fabulous-smelling soap!! This FO did heat up quite a bit as well, so skip the CPOP & just insulate with a towel if you're wanting to promote gel phase. This is a wonderful FO I'd recommend and buy again!
