Cold Process Soap Performance

Light Yellow

Lye Water Temperature 111ºF (43.9°C)
Oil Temperature 113ºF (45°C)

We experienced a very slight acceleration but no separation. Once we added the lye water to the fragranced oils and hand stirred a few times, a light emulsion was created. Based on this we expected more acceleration with the stick blender but it very slowly came to a light trace; we continued to stick blend to a medium trace. The batter stayed nice and fluid and did not start to thicken as we poured into the mold. Overall the fragrance was easy to work with, but we would recommend bringing your batter to a very light trace before adding fragrance to avoid a possible false trace. After 24 hours the soap had discolored a light tan shade and almost reached a full gel. We observed a large amount of glycerin rivers throughout the bars which gave them a very unique look. The scent was nice and strong with a slightly nutty character. After 30 days the soap had discolored to a pale yellow shade and the scent was subtle but had a sweet nutty character that is very pleasant.

Very strong, heady scent. Reminiscent to some of the hair care products I remember growing up. Smells much better mixed.

very strong scent

I would like to know if this blends with any other oil to tone down the fragrance?

This is a winner!

This fragrance has that special something that is hard to explain, but once you smell it, you just fall in love. OOB it's smooth and sophisticated. I use 10% in 464 and cure for 3+ weeks. Hot throw is amazing! This one has a soft, creamy, comforting side paired with a sharp, almost masculine appeal. Candles sell well. Making soaps now and will update.

Absolutely Love!!

So, OOTB it has a very nice scent, you can smell a very small hint of lavender and the oud that isnt overpowering just the right amount. I made a candle to test with this in February but did not start the test until today 7/26. I usually test in the biggest room in my house which is an open concept living-room and dining room (1220 sqft) . The CT and HT is phenomenal!!! Fills up the whole room in 30 mins and it smells AMAZING!! Definitely buying more and this will be one of the scents I launch with! I love CS scents!!

I thought I would love this fragrance, but it was disappointing. Was hoping for a warm, comforting smell and this was just yuck.

This definitely a five star fragrance

For the soft and sweet lovers this is definitely a top notch fragrance! I don’t understand how it only has 4 stars because it smells amazing ct & ht ! I definitely will be purchasing more !

No bueno

The smell of this leaves me gagging no matter how hard I try not to. I tried mixing this fragrance with other scents to dilute/mask the smell and I still end up gagging. It has an overwhelming smell of wet diapers. Not sure how I'm going to make this one work for me. Will not be repurchasing!!

Absolute favorite

This is like a scent I’ve been searching for my whole life. It’s a soft scent itself but still has a great HT in 464. It’s slightly nutty but also earthy and calming and I’m obsessed, so are my customers.

smells wonderful, but weak HT

i really loved this scent out of the bottle. even has a great CT. i did 10% frag load with 464 wax but i can hardly smell it. luckily i got this as a 1oz bottle and only got it to test it, so i didn't waste any money or candle supplies making it and not planning on using it in my line!
