    Just cut this soap scented with BB’s Bergamot and black tea. It’s a bit strong and perfume-y. I don’t hate it; I just wish it was a bit more subtle. Will it mellow as it cures?

    What soapy thing have you done today?

    Unmolded and cut my amethyst soap. Scented with BB’s Bergamot and Black Tea. It’s a bit strong and perfume-y. Will it mellow out as it cures?
