well, now the soaps are fully cured and something crazy happened. The scent came back! I am so happy.

Anyone experience that before?

Yes, several times, with several suppliers FO's. Actually I think I've had it happen with at least 1 or 2 FO's from every supplier I use, but I use a lot of FO's from a lot of suppliers, so it's bound to happen and I just roll with it.
If the scent is completely gone in 12 weeks, and doesn't come back, even when the soaps get wet/lathered, then that scent gets delegated to candles only until the bottle is gone and then I don't repurchase.

This is so interesting. Funny how unpredictable FOs can be! Are EOs the same way?

I don't work with EO's because I find no matter how I try to anchor them, there are like 3-4 (Lime, Lemongrass, Patchouli) that stick and the rest fade to absolutely nothing by a 8-10 week cure, and they are just not worth the cost. Also I make candles, so I like working with scents that can work in all of my applications, and EO's for me, just do not work in wax/candles. I just don't know what the secret is, and know others can get them to work, but I've never been able to.

I have been trying to switch over and test out CS fragrances because I use them in my candles. Like jcandleattic, I like to be able to use my frags in all of my recipes. I have been trying to post my results on the master sheet here on SMF. Please do the same! That way we can all know how CS frags are behaving in soaps, (and other fragrances as well), saving each other money and heartache. BTW, their Dragon's Blood does last in CP soap!

(jcandlattic, I use essential oils in my aromatherapy candles with excellent success. Yes, there is a secret. Since I love your sig line, I will share it with you...)

I got your PM and replied, thank you.
I've been changing my signature line about once a month, so I'm glad you like this one. It'll probably change again near the new year. LOL
