Vanilla Chestnut Fragrance Oil
Choose a Variant

Vanilla Chestnut is a warm, woodsy scent that’s at once comfortingly familiar and unexpectedly complex. Top notes of caramelized sugar envelop toasty chestnut and hints of clove and cinnamon, while notes of tonka, vanilla, and cedar provide an equally sweet and earthy finish. Try Vanilla Chestnut in candles and wax melts for an intriguing alternative to typical woodsy or cedar-driven scents. Or, make this fragrance oil a trendy addition to soap, sugar scrubs, and other body care products and scent collections.

This fragrance oil is infused with natural essential oils including cedarwood, fir needle, patchouli, lemon, geranium, and coriander seed.

Blends well with: Red Plum Baklava, Very Vanilla

Alternative branding ideas: Roasted Chestnuts, Tonka and Chestnut

Suggested colors: Brown, Ivory

There was some acceleration but no separation. The oils and lye solution came to an emulsion quickly and seemed workable but then accelerated to a medium trace. When we added the lye water we observed this caused the mixture to turn brown, and as an emulsion developed the batter turned an orangey brown color. Despite the acceleration, we did not have trouble getting the soap into the mold and tamping it on the counter smoothed out the surface nicely. After 24 hours, the scent was strong with a warm nutty character and the soap shifted to a caramel color. We did observe the soap reached a partial gel with minimal insulation. After 30 days the scent has not faded and has remained true. The bars have discolored to a tan shade. Due to the discoloration you could create interesting color variation by adding various amounts of titanium dioxide to portions of the batter. We would recommend mixing in colors before adding fragrance to allow more time to work and create your pattern.
