Very Vanilla is a classically lovely fragrance all on its own, and makes a great blender, too.

We experienced complete separation with this fragrance. After approximately 2 minutes of stick blending there was no sign that an emulsion was going to form then suddenly the batter became chunky and there was a clear separation of oils and water. At this point, the oils had turned brown from the fragrance. We were able to dump the mixture into a crockpot and hot process the soap. After 24 hours the fragrance was still incredibly strong and the soap had discolored to a dark brown. After 30 days, the fragrance is very strong and has almost a bourbon vanilla character. The bars discolored to a deep chocolate brown color. We would not recommend this fragrance in a cold process application but it will still be great for all other personal care products.

Not what expected

So I bought this vanilla thinking it would be a sweet mixable fragrance however, it has a sour smell. No matter what I do the sour smell doesn't fade. It doesn't have a hint of sweetness.

Vanilla to the core

This vanilla is the deep scent of the vanilla been, the core that you scrape from the bean. Once dried in candle or soap it’s amazing!!! I feel most of the reviews hear that give it a bad review are the ones that have been used to smelling Vanilla’s that are seemingly very commercial and cheap. This is a Vanilla that is true to the core of what a vanilla vanilla bean is. amazing!

Dont judge it till you mix it

Pleaseeeee mix it guys! By itself & right out the bottle, yes it smells funny, but mix it with some of the other scents… you got yourself a winner

give it a chance

Out of the bottle it comes out strong, BUT, if you put a cotton swab or some cotton with some of the fragrance oil then you can begin to appreciate and distinguish the scents. There's a certain sweetness, buttery, caramelized sugar vibes, with vanilla after smell. It kinda makes me taste the air, not sure if that makes sense. It's a simple vanilla scent. I don't care for vanilla, but some of my family members love the vanilla scent, so this scent will do just fine.

Smells like acetone with hints of butter and almond.

Very Very Sweet!

Very Vanilla is very sweet! Depending on the fragrance I blend this with, I would use only a small portion...I feel that a little will go a very long way.

Yummy sweetness and reed diffusable

This is a delicious vanilla AND it is reed diffusable! Easy scent to place in every bathroom and every frequented spot in the home.

This is one of the most spot-on vanilla fragrances oils and is rich, deep and complex. It is not a weak and "skinny" scented vanilla. It truly smells like pure creamy vanilla extract and vanilla beans, and not a chemical smell, but natural. I have only used this in candles and wax melts so far. I use it alone and it is a GREAT blender as well. Definitely give this one a try and CS, please do not discontinue it ever.....

not for soap making

I love the fragrance and bought it because it was listed in the category for soap making. Very expensive mistake. It caused the soap to separate and become a failure. Second time this has happened with Candle Science oils that are supposedly compatible for soap making. Looks like I'll be sticking to Brambleberry from now on.
