Cold Process Soap Performance

Light Tan

Lye Water Temperature 110ºF (43.3°C)
Oil Temperature 110ºF (43.3°C)

We experienced excessive acceleration but no separation. The water and oils came to an emulsion quickly and turned bright yellow. At this point, we could already see the effects of acceleration so we removed the stick blender. In the few seconds it took to wipe off the blades and set the stick blender safely out of the way, the soap became stiff. We dumped the soap into the mold and pressed down as much as we could. By the time we grabbed a piece of plastic wrap to cover the mold, the soap was already starting to gel. After 24 hours we observed that the soap reached a full gel and there was no discoloration. We could see the edges did not become uniform with the entire bar and looked like small pebbles, however, they did not break or fall off. After 30 days, the soap had discolored to a light tan shade and the scent was a little softer. This fragrance may perform better in a hot process soap application or other personal care products. Due to the very quick acceleration, it’s not clear if hand stirring this fragrance in would allow enough time to fully incorporate and get into the mold without hardening.

Right on the money!

One of the best fragrances from CS. I'll keep ordering it as long as you have it.

Absolutely Beautiful!

Smells identical to the original, soaped perfectly using the hot process method. Extremely strong in soap! Would be perfect for other bath items; bath bombs, salts, lotion, etc. A very feminine, sweet fragrance makes me think of Hawaii! This one is a definite keeper!!!!!

Not plumeria

Not genuine plumeria scent - more of “Hawaii themed floral-ish souvenir stuff “ scent. Artificial. Disappointed. Maybe smells better/different once it’s cured as a candle, hopefully.

This is a 5-star oil with a strong hot throw and accurate description! It performs well in soy wax and even blended for a reed diffuser (10.35% diffuser maximum usage level). If you aren’t getting a strong hot throw, then increase the fragrance load and cure time before testing. It blends fabulously! I wish people would try blending and maximum fragrance loads before leaving bad reviews, since all of Candle Science’s fragrance oils are high-end art. With numerous blending recommendations and helpful articles on this site, most bad reviews are from human error and frustrating for people wondering if oils match descriptions or have challenges we need to adjust for.

I was excited. I am new to this. I have tried several times and the cold throw is absolutely wonderful. The HT is nothing: 1 hour, 2 3 4. I have followed all of your instructions but I am thoroughly disappointed.

Seaside Plumeria is such a beautiful, classy and complex fragrance! It smells just like the description. The hot and cold throws are fabulous! I’m so excited about all of the Clean Scents, even if they mean having to retest or adjust my descriptions. Clients, animals, aquatic life, and Mother Nature are worth it! Thank you for being the best fragrance oil company!

Can’t soap with it?!

I’m so upset about the change in this fragrance. Plumeria was one of my best selling soaps. Now I can’t even use this new fragrance to soap because it doesn’t soap well. The other fragrance was amazing as is.

Soap on a stick

Do not use for soap

the only way to tell the difference between the old and new version is to literally smell them side by side. You can easily switch out the old for the new without customers knowing the difference. Of course, a true candlemaker can smell the subtle difference but its like a 2% difference

Smells the same but not really

If you compare both the old version and this one at the same time the old one is sweeter… this one is more floral. But alone you can’t really tell, we haven’t had anyone nor us smell a major scent shift. Well done revision
