    I had promised that I would post my results from testing Karma from Fragrance Buddy. Out of the bottle it was a smell that was difficult for me smell the complete scent.

    The Conservatorie No Longer Lists Soap Stable Information ...

    I'm not sure that this is the right place for this information, but wanted to let everyone know that The Conservatorie has removed any reference to CP stable on their site. This is going to make ordering difficult, since this is a big issue when you need to order minimum 100g. If anyone has...

They are making some price structure changes, and I hope they rethink what they have done to the castor oil...

I plan to soap full water, room temp, single color, and will most likely mix the FO with my castor oil. Does anyone soap with this FO? The reviews on the WSP site have me...

    Regrets Do You Have Any?

    What are some of the fragrance oils that you would never purchase again? The ones that morphed, seized, totally disappeared, or weren't true to their name. For me Mango Papaya from WSP was delicious in melt & pour, but morphed in Cold Process. Moroccan Mint from WSP doesn't have any mint that I...

    I really need to get a new pair of reading glasses, somehow my scale unit measure was hit and I thought I was measuring in ounces and it was grams.
