Cold Process Soap Performance

Dark Tan

Lye Water Temperature 111ºF (43.9°C)
Oil Temperature 116ºF (46.7°C)

We would not recommend this fragrance in a cold process application. But it would be great in melt-and-pour or hot process soaps and other personal care products. In cold process soap, we experienced complete separation with this fragrance. After 15 min of stick blending and hand stirring, there was no sign of stable emulsion. We determined it would need hot processing to complete the soap. After 24 hours, we observed the soap bars discolored tan around the edges while the inside remained a light yellow. The scent was pleasantly strong. After 30 days, the soap bars had a uniform tan discoloration, and the scent remained strong.

I had higher hopes for this one...

To be honest this smells just like a much more subtle version of Coconut Soleil. (Which I love... but we already have it?) I've been burning it in my office and to be honest I can barely smell it even when I leave the room and come back a half hour later. Using 6006 wax for those wondering. I can smell it but it is VERY VERY subtle. To the point that I question if it really is there or if I'm smelling something else. It is an overall nice smell but again very similar to coconut soleil and that one is a much better thrower in my opinion.

Sunshine in a Bottle :)

I’m finally getting around to pouring some 1 oz samples I’ve been hoarding like a a squirrel going into winter. This scent slaps! It’s light but extremely inviting and positive. I would describe this as a delicate beach scent with hints of coconut and sunshine. I want to roll in this scent and pretend it’s summer (MN problems) Five stars CS. Great work on this one!

So warm and beachy!

Love the way this smells OOB and in my soy wax. It's beachy with the Palm, Citrus, and Coconut without giving too much of the suntan lotion smell. I find the Amber and Sea Salt notes really shine through, giving it a very warm, cozy beach vibe.

I personally LOVE the suntan lotion smell, and this makes me feel like I’m on the beach. I am obsessed with the smell right from the bottle. Haven’t tested in wax yet, but still one of my favs

Add this to your base of choice ASAP!

When I first smelled this OOB, it reminded me of a less coconutty (that's gotta be a word, right?) Santal and Coconut (a fave!). But once I put it in wax (464, 10% fragrance load, 2 week cure), I could really get all of the notes and I really really like it! Definitely smelled more of the (slight) musk notes, still has the beachy vibes, but definitely a fresh year-round scent. You owe it to yourself to put it in your fave base and give this one a try- it surprised me in a great way :)

It’s a whole damn vibe!

Of course I regret not purchasing the bigger bottle. Besides that, oh… this is a whole damn vibe. And the beautiful thing about it is that it doesn’t smack you in the face with coconut. The combination in that bottle is perfection for me. Takes me “there” with my senses, absolutely!!!

Warmth of the Sun

This is such a warm and inviting summer fragrance. I love that it’s not the typical tropical fragrance. Instead it invokes the essence of summer in an elegant and welcoming fashion. Blends wonderfully with so many other summer scents as well.

5 stars for Solar Sands!

I purchased two ounces to try it out and will be ordering more. This is a warm, sensual scent and smells great in my coconut soy candles!!

Smells like summer!

I think this oil smells exactly like sunscreen, but I love it so much! It takes me right back to summer, and I would burn it year-round.
