This fragrance oil is infused with natural orange essential oil.

Cold Process Soap Performance

Lye Water Temperature 97ºF (36.1°C)
Oil Temperature 98ºF (36.7°C)

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.

Amazing Scent

This scent smells amazing. CT & HT is perfect.

This new version is missing the tartness that the older version had and I miss that, but it's still okay. Definitely not as good out of the bottle but still useable.

Not the same

I have ordered this scent in the pass and it was great. This one I received didn't smell good at all even after curing for 2wks which was disappointing because I really liked it.

Not for Me

I suppose it should have been obvious from the fragrance notes but this is not a true orange scent. Honestly I get more grapefruit than anything. The out-of-bottle smell is indeed kinda funky. You get that pulpy fruit juice sweetness, but then underneath is something... kinda unpleasant. It's a little alcohol-y, like the beginnings of that champagne/mimosa edge. Luckily that does mellow out when it actually poured. I tried it at 7.5% in 464 soy to acceptable results. Still just kinda smells like tart pulpy orange juice (maybe that's what mimosas smell like, I've never had one). An acceptable performing and smelling fragrance that's just not for me.

smells weird

I DO NOT RECOMMEND this smell. i smelt it, my mom, step dad, grandma, grandpa and they all said it smelled funky. i mean, if you like the smell then go ahead but I don’t recommend for selling because nobody will buy this stinky smell.
