I agree, most of the scents do stick around-even at the six month mark I can tell what they are. Lemon pound cake I still want to eat! I don't have my list in front of me, but I'm going to continue testing these as hopefuls!
Welcome back!

Thanks Soapmaker!

I went through the box and found the ones I had kept because I wanted to order more. I have missed some reviews due to the time frame and my spring cleaning of old soaps (oops). These are mostly in the 7 month and up age range, no special storage and they were dumped on top of each other for a while in a box LOL.

Merlot is still a nice grape wine smell, not sharp anymore like it was originally.

Toasted marshmellow stayed true to the name. I just cant see myself using it for soap, but candles and melts might be awesome.

Leather is still there albeit faded somewhere. However, I have a feeling it would blossom if a wet test was done-this will be my leather scent now because for me anything over 6 months is fine for retention.

Moscato-still smells like a sweet lychee to me! I have to get some more!

Cornbread-*nibble* BLEH ok it doesn't taste as good as it smells and it's still strong.

Sea Kelp-oceany smell, still holding well, must order more!



****
I have noticed the scent doesn't seem to transfer much between bars even when on top of each other-had some of that happen with other brands. To me, that's a plus but it might not be the scents' doing!

I have more to test, got busy making restocks and stopped testing. Am planning on resuming next month.

I did notice that nothing discolored further than what it was at one month old so no surprises!

I decided to test the Rosewood&Musk as a blender for black tea and Rose FOs. A good black tea FO has been very hard to find. Most smell like lemon tea and are usually light on the tea notes. At the other end is BB's Black Tea which can't decide what it wants to be and have liquid smoke thrown in it for no reason. The rose FOs (and I have several) smell to me like burnt candles with crushed roses on top. Most don't improve with age. I went ahead and blended a few including the BB Black Tea. It's still early in the cure, but all the blends actually smell better than the originals. Even the BB Black Tea smells more like black tea and the smoky notes that are left seem to belong. The burnt notes in the rose FOs seem to disappear too. If the scents hold, I see a big bottle of R&M in my future. It is something to consider if Black Tea and Rose FOs are still on the to do list.
