    I make a coffee scented bar with coffee grounds, coffee, and cocoa butter that I dearly love, however, the scent that I use - Crafter's Choice "Fresh Brewed Coffee" - fragrance oil, accelerates...

    I HATE that, even though I'm prepared for it. any one have a fragrance oil that they recommend that doesn't accelerate? I mean, one that smells like coffee even after a year?

    Thanks so much, my friends!

    I can only advise against caramel coffee from Nurture Soaps. Smells only of caramel after 4 weeks. It's nice and strong but no hint of coffee. It did behave very well.

    Brambleberry espresso holds decently well. I’m using a bar that’s over 2 years old and it still has some scent but it has morphed a bit. It’s smooshed into a berry scented bar do I’m not sure how much is which bar

    Candle Science makes a hazelnut coffee that holds pass the 6 month mark. I've tested it and BrambleBerry's Espresso. They were both easy to work with and have held pass the 6 month mark. It just depends how you like your coffee lol! I like them both - straight espresso and the creamer hazelnut coffee fragrance.

    Natures garden has a fresh brewed coffee FO that smells just like coffee. No sweet, no chocolate, just coffee.
    I don't know how well it holds in soap, I use it in lotion.

    ETA: never mind, apparently it fades in just a few days in soap.

    The Espresso is really nice though. If I ever want to make coffee scented soap again, that's what I'd use.

    @Deborah Long if you order from Aztec, try the Brazilian Coffee and sugar cane for non sweet Coffee. The French Vanilla Latte for a creamy Coffee. I made the soaps with their sample 4 months ago and both are holding.
