We did not experience any acceleration or separation. The batter was slow to come to a light trace and was easy to work with. However, be prepared for your batter to turn a dark pink color initially. After 24 hours, the soap had changed to a tan color and no longer had any traces of the pink we saw initially. We observed that the soap only reached a partial gel through the center of the loaf. The scent was deliciously strong. After 30 days, the scent is strong and the bars had discolored to a dark tan shade.

*Note - This fragrance was tested at a 5% fragrance load. With the release of IFRAs 49th Amendment this fragrance can now be used at 3.6% to remain IFRA compliant.

Wonderful bakery scent but…

It’s not lemony enough to be a lemon pound cake scent. It’s more of a buttery pound cake that smells amazing. I’ve used it in candles, wax melts and cold process soap. Smells great in all just wish it was a bit more on the lemon side.

Not as lemony as I thought

This fragrance definitely has the pound cake smell, which is rich and full, but it’s not as lemony as I thought it would be. It’s still wonderful scent I would recommend this for sure!

SO good

this is so true to life it's almost insane. it's incredible in both CT and HT in 464. OOB I knew it was going to be good but after a short cure (4 days) it really shocked me how good it is.

Oh my goodness, you guys literally outdid yourselves with this one. It smells just like the lemon loaf pound cake at Starbucks. The best part is the cold throw, it literally hits me in the face out in the hallway when approaching my living room where its located. I haven’t tested it in a candle yet, but the reason I’m leaving this review now is because this is exactly what helps me decide what fragrances to use in a candle when I get results like these from the cold throw. Especially the next day when I get a strong whiff from the blotter strip. This will blend great with another lemon scent If you’re not looking for a candle, that is too sweet. No I am not saying this candle is too sweet, but blending it with a lemon scent will definitely balance it out between the lemon and cake scents.

Strong and Yummy

This oil smells amazing! One of my customers just take the top off the candle without even burning it and can smell it in a small room.

Absolutely Amazing

I received this as a sample and made a sample in soy wax. I cannot believe how good it smells - CT and HT are
perfect, can’t wait to receive a bigger bottle.
