I’ve tried to make it work and I cannot. This scent is garbage for the 464 soy blend. I feel that candle science should be vetting this kind of reaction when the candle sets. Save your money.

This is a great fragrance to practice with if you’ve never experienced acceleration! We brought this to an emulsion and things looked ok. A few more pulses of the stick blender and we could see solid chunks of soap forming. We immediately removed the stick blender and used a spatula to make sure everything was incorporated. The batter had turned into a cottage cheese-like texture. There were no signs of oil and water separation so we plopped the soap into the mold and pressed it all down as tight as we could. After 20 minutes we saw the soap was in a full gel and starting to crack and expand through the center. Fortunately, the soap did not volcano and settled back into the mold within an hour. After 24 hours the soap was very oily and still resembled cottage cheese curds. The scent was still incredibly strong, almost too strong, so we decided to just rebatch the whole loaf. The soap held together as we took it out of the mold, but it had very defined lines of every little chunk that formed just before it went into the mold. The oil may have reabsorbed eventually and the whole soap would have been ok, but it looked very unappealing. We cut the bars into small chunks and tossed them in the crockpot. The soap came out great and the scent remained very strong. There was a light tan discoloration. After 30 days the scent is still quite strong—we recommend not using more than 3-4% fragrance in a cold process application. Due to the minimal discoloration, a wide variety of colors would work well for this fragrance.
Got to try this Scent as a sample bottle. Super excited to make candles with it and we used the sample bottle for a foaming hand soap! Love it!
Candles; This is ok for a bathroom or small room.
NOT a strong Whole house scent.
My batch; 464 wax/6-12oz jars (72oz) CD18 wick
6oz fragrance cure tested at one and two weeks.
This is such a beautiful and sophisticated fragrance on it’s own and with other scents! Don’t judge the scent by the bad reviews for how the oil works in soap. The heavenly scent makes for wonderful and popular candles! Please don't discontinue!
Imagine baby powder and roses mixed together! It smells so luxurious and beautiful. A little overpowering though. But that’s okay because I like strong scents. You will not regret buying this if you love floral powdery scents.
I have been making CP soap for more than a year, and had yet to have soap batter seize on me....Enter Magnolia and Peony!!!
There was nothing different about my recipe or way I was creating this batch of soap (other than the fragrance). I added the fragrance, poured the batter into 2 different cups & added mica to each cup. No sooner did I go back to the 1st cup to mix the mica it was thicker than molasses on a cold morning. With extreme gusto I managed to mix the micas in. By the time I got the micas through the batter, I was cramming the disaster into the mold. I banged the wooden mold on the counter to remove as much air as I could, I pressed it flat into the mold as well. I put it to bed, covered it with cling wrap & wrapped in a bath towel.
Through my trials with this naughty fragrance, despite a few air pockets it came out to be a nice soap. I do like the fragrance, smells lovely !!
Needless to say, I will not purchase again. Soaping with fragrance anxiety is no fun.
This smells great. It is a little strong however, it is my best seller as a candle and perfume.
Lovely bold floral scent but has been problematic in 464 (7% FO) - every batch I've poured has lumpy tops, holes & some frosting, despite trying a range of pour temps to remedy these issues.
Unfortunately, I love the smell but I have extremely bad frosting when using this with C-3 Naturewax. Hopefully someone can help me out here! I've never had such an issue with a FO.
This fragrance is very strong in 464. My customers absolutely love the scent!
Seized immediately in CP soap. Heated the soap so quickly , gelled in the pot. Beautiful clean fragrance, but def not for CP soap
This fragrance is nice and strong in 464. My customers who love Magnolia adore this scent.
Love this new scent! Great cold and hot throw in my candles!
Within 30 seconds after I put Magnolia and Peony in my soap it has totally seized. This was a nine pound block of seized soap. I love the scent but won t be using anymore.
Ruins CP soap. Locked immediately, even though i have a great, slow moving recipe. I will use in HP soap, and then shouldn't have a problem.
Beautiful scent though.
Just got my sample and it smells good so far in the bottle, however I sense it might be a little on the sweeter side in a candle. Has anyone mixed this any other fragrances? I’m tempted to try a little English Garden for more of a green floral rather than sweet.
Great hot and cold throw. Customers who have bought this one love it.
I really didn’t love this scent. Is a good but soft scent and I didn’t feel the magnolia at all. Not a fan!
This is a truly beautiful floral scent! I’m not a big floral person but this scent is sophisticated and strong. I was on the fence with attempting CP but I did. You better be ready for a full seize. I even used a water discount (not a bright idea 🤭) but I was able to slap the soap into the mold. You will have seconds once mixed so plan accordingly. My bars came out beautiful despite the fast moving oil. It’s worth it because the scent is sooo beautiful!!
I have never worked so hard to get a batch of soap out of a pot. I am an experienced soaper (20 plus years) and I just almost lost my mind. Read the soap review on the fragrance page. It's true. I am guessing this is going to be a big flop in the morning ....wow! Something is wRonG. lol
Personally i love this scent. I made CP soap with it, with a 33% Lye Concentration. I did not have any issues with ricing or seizing. So far no discoloration. I did a 3 color mix. Now.....when i added my Mica's & mixed, it did thicken up but it sat for 3 or more min while i was working on the rest and this may have been the reason why. I do get a powdery scent but it's beautiful. I think it will be a great seller for me.
I was disappointed with this scent. Peony is one of my favorite smells on earth and I couldn't smell any in this. It smells too powdery. Made me sick.
Great scent, however it is NOT suitable for CP soaps. When I added it to the soap it instantly locked up, I had to scrape it out of the bowl. Great for the candles and lotions and other things though
Love this scent! Very beautiful mix.
This has been a hit for me! customers love it. I did a small batch to test and it was a complete success. It is a very fresh floral scent, its a great scent for spring.
I was so looking so forward to this scent. I love both the pink magnolias scent you carried and I have a peony scent I love. It’s neither magnolia nor peonies in my opinion. I just don’t smell either. It’s quite off putting.
I think I will mix my own with the peony scent I have and the pink magnolia blossom I have left and will most likely come up with a better scent. In theory, this sounds so beautiful.... but it’s not for me.
This might be a hit for some but its a miss for me. It has an old perfume smell. I didn't get any floral scent in mine.
This one was hit or miss with some customers (I expect that... some enjoy florals and some do not).
Those who do enjoy a beautiful floral scent, this one is great! I will keep it in my spring/summer lineup.
Wow! This fragrance is sooooo pretty! A soapy clean floral! I can't stop smelling this, this is going to be a best seller! So fresh! You guys have GOT to try this one! Absolutely AMAZING!
I did a test batch with this FO. 3 Day cure before testing and the strongest note coming through is the powder. It's light & pretty although I'm not sure it's floral. Maybe after a longer cure.
This smells very nice and I compared it to another magnolia blossom oil from a different company. This is similar but more complex. It smells beautiful, and the only thing I'll say, is that upon making test candles, the base notes of the powder come forward more than if you are just smelling it from the bottle. Still, it smells very nice, ultra feminine.
