Comments

This Bordeaux is amazing in Soy Wax. Hot and cold throw are incredible!

Used in a CP goat milk soap, blended with Vanilla FO. Well behaved, and the resulting soap is a beautiful deep brown. Topped with a gold mica swirl, it looks as good as it smells. Six months later, the scent hasn't faded. It's strong; use less than ususal!

behaved well in cp soap.  I used this with vanilla stabilizer but it still turned a deep brown.  

Out of the bottle, I found the smell of this fragrance oil to begin with nice notes of berry, and then change to a somewhat medicinal smell. I used it in cold process soap, and in the soap recipe I was using it actually decelerated trace, which was a pleasant surprise. After a couple of days it smells a little better in the soap than it did out of the bottle. I'd say about 50% of people who smelled it said that it smelled like a fantastic, clean scent, and the other half agreed with me saying it smelled a little like medicine. I haven't been able to tell if it discoloured because the soap I made with it was dyed a dark red. 

Overall I'd give this one a 3/5.
