This is the third version of Mimosa and Mandarin. I didn't get to try the first one, but it had great reviews. They then made it a clean scent and many of the older customers said they didn't like it. Myself and my customers loved the new clean scent. Then they discontinued that one to come out with one that would satisfy the older customers. But honestly, I love this new scent. Much more mandarin in the scent and it just smells sooo good when lit. Please don't discontinue this one! Knocked this scent out of the park!

We did experience slight acceleration but no separation. We achieved a very light trace quickly, but with just hand-stirring it held and did not appear to thicken. With a few quick pulses of the stick blender it was very close to a thick trace. The batter remained workable and poured into the mold smoothly while just the last few bits had thickened in the pot. After 24 hours, the soap discolored to a very light yellow and the scent was strong. We observed the soap only reached a partial gel. After 30 days, the soap discolored to a light tan color and the fragrance faded slightly, but was still true to the scent. Hand-stirring in the fragrance at a very light trace may allow for extra time to work on more detailed designs.
i hadn't used the previous version so i can't compare... but i really love this one! i like that it actually kind of smells like sparkling wine, kind of bready and effervescent. if you want more citrus try grapefruit mangosteen or mango tangerine!
I absolutely loved the old Mimosa and Mandarin fragrance. So did my customers. This new version is NOT the same.
