Fragrance Oil Talk

Honeysuckle Rainbow Sorcery Soap

Let’s talk about fragrance oils.

For many soap makers scenting soap is a the holy grail. Along the way toward that holy grail, there are lots of tricky business.

There are so many companies that sell fragrance oils for soap making. Bramble Berry, Nurture Soap Supply, Nature’s Garden, Candle Science, Fillmore Container (True Scents), Aztec International, Wholesale Supplies Plus, just to name a few.

I’ve learned a few things about fragrance oils.

The scent I experience right out of the bottle doesn’t lie. I need to be present to that attraction or repulsion. Being aware of this response doesn’t have to stop me from using the fragrance oil, but being aware that the fragrance oil is helpful.

When  fragrance oil accelerates or discolors doesn’t immediately take it off my roster. I need to take more care with it, treat it more gently and incorporate the behaviors of that particular fragrance oil in the design, if I want to enjoy it. I remember most of those that move fast or discolor. Many of my pies have gone in the trash because I’ve tried fruit scents with them. They were overwhelming and potent. That doesn’t mean you won’t like them, so I don’t list them, but I do not. I honor that about me. If I were to offer something I can’t stomach in my world, how could I stock it?

I have also learned that if I don’t like a fragrance oil in soap I cannot offer it. I can’t get behind the entire soap and say, “yeah, this is awesome.” Which is what I want to say. I want to create something extraordinary, something you can’t live without, at least trying once.

What do you want your soap to smell like? The ocean in winter? Meadow flowers in spring? The scent of fresh hay, leather and the hint of barn wood? How about fresh cut grass the first day of summer vacation?

I look for scents that are either so unique they create new memories, or sincere scents that drum up old pleasant memories. Right behind this desire to create something that makes a series of images in your mind I want you to get present to that moment – ground in that very moment of your present state while experiencing your soap. Yes, all that I ask from my fragrance oils and blends.

The last two companies, I used a lot of them, couldn’t like any but those listed, and love them. I can’t live without them.

This is my cultivated list. All those that have a “Y” means yes I would or have purchased again. Those I have listed are ones I happen to have, like, but not enough to buy again for the following reasons: 1.) I haven’t used it yet, 2.) I haven’t found a soap to use it in yet (like Whiskey) 3.) No answer means I might buy it again, but not soon. Those I have a big Yes to, means I love it so much I will use it for-EVER!
