We did not experience any acceleration or separation. The soap easily came to a light trace and stayed fluid while pouring into the mold. After 24 hours we noticed the surface of the soap was oily and overall softer than usual. Ideally, this batch would have stayed in the mold another day to allow it to harden a little more. But, we were able to remove the soap from the silicone mold without any tearing or creating any surface issues. We did see that the soap reached a full gel with minimal insulation. The scent was strong and very true. The bars had a yellow discoloration. After a 30 day cure the scent was a little more mild but still true. The discoloration had faded quite a bit and the bars have a typical off white color. This fragrance would be ideal for color techniques that require the batter to stay at a light trace for several minutes.

Currantly in love

Out of all the currants, Red Currant is my fave. It is such a lovely scent. I really smell the berry-ness of it. So in love with it.

Strong when lit!

I really like red currant - smells fresh and crisp, like winter air. I'll definitely be making these this winter. Used 10% in 464.


This is the perfect red currant scent. Lemony top notes, behaves well in cp soap and excellent in candles!! At first I bought a sample, then came back and bought the 16 oz!! Love!

Scent is MILD, but TRUE in CP SOAP

OOB this scent is not strong. In CP soap, the scent remained true, but softer. I am only on day 3 of my cure and am afraid that the scent might fade to nothing by the end of 30 days. The fragrance was easy to work with and would be good for those who like a LIGHTLY scented soap.

The scent is very hard to describe. There are some berry tones, but there are other scents that dominate. You don't want to eat it LOL... This scent is like a fruit based Christmas Potpourri.

Great for CP soap

I used this in CP soap. Soaped at 100 (goat's milk was added to oils at room temp) a moderate water discount, and this fragrance gave me plenty of time to work. Amazing scent and true to the OOB scent. I used less than 1 ounce in 1.85 lbs of oil to fit into an 8 inch long tall and skinny mold and the scent is pretty strong. I'll have to wait for cure to see what the final color is, I used TD on the white part. Definitely recommend it. Not ricing, acceleration or separation. It even slowed down trace a bit. Definitely recommend it for CP if you want to do intricate swirls
