Tonka and Oud Fragrance Oil
Choose a Variant

Tonka and Oud is a complex, modern fragrance oil with high-end appeal. This woody scent begins with top notes of amaretto and powder as it gives way to a heart of tonka and balsam. Notes of rum, musk, and sweet, resinous oud make up the base of this intriguing fragrance. This pleasantly mellow scent is perfect for “everyday” home fragrance options like candles and wax melts. Tonka and Oud turns bath and body care creations into beautiful gifts for any season. We can also imagine Tonka and Oud as an ideal scent for a men’s personal care line—think beard oils and shaving balms.

This fragrance oil is infused with natural essential oils, including fir needle, cedarwood, lemon, peppermint, and palmarosa.

We did experience some acceleration but no separation. The mixture came to a light trace quickly, and with just a few additional pulses of the stick blender we had a medium-thick trace. The batter initially poured into the mold easily, but then started to clump as the last little bit was poured. Tamping the mold after pouring did smooth out the top. We did experience a wide variety of color changes throughout the process. When adding the lye water to the fragranced oils, the oils turned grey. As we began stick blending, the mixture turned a light yellowish-brown color. After 24 hours, the outer edges of the soap were a dark mustard yellow shade while the inside remained a light lemon yellow shade. The scent was super strong! After 30 days the scent had faded slightly, but was still pleasantly strong. The final color of the bar is dark brown. The discoloration and acceleration will limit the design options, but the final scent would be well worth a simple design.
