I love the smell of OMH soap with no fragrance. I made two batches a few weeks ago. The first one i screwed up and burnt the honey. I made another batch. The burnt one smells like maple syrup. I dont like maple syrup, but im sure others will.I make an unscented Oatmeal Milk and Honey soap that smells quite nice. It has no fragrance added to it but the natural ingredients smell quite lovely and I've several customers that will order batches of it just for themselves. One actually takes a batch home to Columbia for his mother because she loves my soap so much.
BrambleBerry’s Lavender FO. I bought the trial size and made soap (20 oz) in July. It wasn’t overpowering and three months later it’s just a lovely scent.Lavender also gives me migraines. Do you mind if I ask what this one that you tolerate better is called? I'd like to give it a try.
Thank you! I'm going to try it. Lavender smells really pretty and there are so many combinations with it that sound awesome. But as of yet I haven't been willing to risk the headaches ...BrambleBerry’s Lavender FO. I bought the trial size and made soap (20 oz) in July.

Scent is one of our most important senses. It's why natural gas smells like rotten eggs. It's why when I stopped at the store on Friday for cream for my coffee, I came out with freshly fried chicken for supper.It troubles me that scent is such a driver. You can focus on scent, appearance, or ingredients or some gradient of a combo of those. My skills are much more in making a beautiful and colorful soap over being a scent driven soap or fancy ingredient soap. Candidly I'd rather my soaps be chosen for how they look and are different from most others available. But I hear this about scents often so I just started adding them to my collection. Without shows it is hard to tell if this will pay off.
I have experienced the same thing and don’t understand why, but I guess differences make the world go around! I find the Cranberry Spice scent to be a strong scent and would make a wonderfully scented candle that would, most likely, have a nice throw to it.It was one of my earlier soaps where i was shy/cheap with the fo. I have other soaps with the same fo that smell phenomenal at higher rates. This soap is really pretty and i love it in the shower, so im pretty diappointed.
I brought a bunch of soaps into work to give to our nurses (it is/was er nurse week). The last ones in the box were my cranberry spice and nobody took them. Which is really odd, because I dont have one bar left of the pumpkin spice, and to me they are very similar in smell.
I think that if i made the soap more pumpkiny looking and called it pumpkin spice, they would have flown out of the box lol.
That is so sweet of you to make it for her
