A solid perfume sounds great! Or a body lotion depending on how you feel about it. I know there are some scents I want small splashes of, and others I'd like to be covered in. I bought some solid perfume base from Brambleberry.

You have me curious about this fragrance.. Does it smell the same after it goes in soap?

Must. Not. Order. FOs!
About to move, must not order FOs!
Have packed all soaping stuff, must not order FOs!
Must...maybe...my preciousssses?
NO!

But thank you all for giving me a great thread to add tried and true FOs to the next order. Keep this up, and I will order FOs after the move.

LOL Well you have at least four weeks before I can give any real opinion. These are the initial OOB impressions.

Some of them I'll update because they were in my first tester batch, but this will give you time to get settled and find all the bottles you have packed away!

That needs to be TLC's new reality show..."Hobby Intervention". But really, it would just make other people in that hobby buy stuff. "You need to cut your FO stash down to 2 shoe boxes." "Smell this one! And this one! Oooh, this is my favorite vanilla bean, but this is my favorite vanilla frosting, and this is my favorite vanilla ice cream."

lol I think the likes would depend on what you favor. I love sweet and fruity ones. So the suppliers on your list are not in my lists of favorites at all.

I loooooovvvvvvveeeee fragrances, I also have some type of obsession with them, and since I had a nose operation back in 1996, my sense of smell is super acute.

I can tell my hubby what he had for lunch, even after he brushed his teeth.

I did not know that the real danger of getting into this hobby was actually the obsession with FOs. I have so many. Some to blend with. Some that sounded nice on the website, but fell flat OOB when they got to me and some I've gone back and ordered larger bottles of. I have a problem. And now I want some of these others being reviewed. I have so many ideas for geek soap that I need to start writing a list!

I even managed to pass on the 35% off sale yesterday.

It wasn't easy and I *may* have put some into my cart before backing out.

Ha! I resisted, I resisted, I made a shopping cart just for fun and decided I could easily not order them all, reviewed the cart again and affirmed that I could skip the sale, talked to a friend about her order, and---well crap, there went that good intention. At least it wasn't a large order, just enough to get free shipping. That's restraint. Of a sort, anyway. Ha.

ROFL!!

I had a moment when I had a bunch of stuff in my cart while looking at MMS fragrances.. Saw my fragrance cost, freaked out and took a bunch out of the cart, then saw my updated shipping cost..

Then felt like I was getting suckered paying for less product without nearly enough savings on shipping.

I think I restrained myself from putting everything back in the cart and just walked away from the computer.
