Should it have a coffee scent?
I'd have to use an FO because coffee EO is $160 for 100g
If I wanted to go natural would it be silly to have rosemary (or something else) scented coffee soap? If so, any suggestions for a sensible EO?
I think those work together because it is a 'dark' scent.

I have a pineapple FO that I like....but it discolors DARK brown and I just don't think pineapple scent works with dark brown soap.

I think if you frame it as coffee soap with X fragrance, that works better to my mind than X fragrance with coffee. So...Coffee Soap with rose fragrance is better than Rose Soap that is brown and has coffee. Does that make sense? LOL not really.

I make a mocha latte with coffee, chocolate and a little bit of vanilla fo. I separate out a small amount of base to leave uncolored. I color the rest with cocoa powder and swirl the uncolored. The vanilla makes the uncolored just a bit creamy beige, the rest is darker brown. Just don't bite it!
