We experienced a slight amount of acceleration but no separation. This came to a light trace slowly but once at trace, the batter did start to thicken slightly. At a medium trace the batter was easy to work with and remained fluid while pouring into the mold. After 24 hours, the soap had gelled through the center only and discolored to a light beige. The scent was more mild but very true to the original character. After 30 days, the soap discolored to a light tan and the scent was strong. This fragrance would be ideal for simple design patterns that require a thicker trace but prepare to work quickly.

Palo Santo rebrand👎🏽

For a moment I thought it was my sense of smell but there’s literally no scent. Please bring back the original asap!

Subtle to no scent

Subtle to no scent. I made a candle out of it and never picked up a scent. I am very disappointed.

Deserves 6 stars

Had my first Spring show for 2022 and this scent was by far the fan favorite! They kept saying how clean and earthy it was. Just the perfect amount of masculine-but not so masculine like axe body spray! Its not heavy and fits in perfect with my line of soft aromas. I call mine Smoked Timber! Very happy with this scent!

Palo Santo FO

This Palo Santo smells soooo good! I didn't really like the Alpine Balsam smell in my soaps and I got this Palo Santo to blend with it and it did not disappoint!! It has a woodsy smell that's a little sweet. I would say it's a little androgynous perhaps leaning on the masculine side and very versitle. I'm buying a bigger bottle because I'm already out and would like to make candles with it next! Nice job Candle Science!
