So before I give my first batch of soap a go I was hoping to come up with a scent that I've come across on one of my shave soaps. I purchased a few FOs that the soap maker's scent profile notes but I'm not sure I'm good at blending. After trying a few times and not really liking the results (and cause I really want to get my first batch going soon) I decided to go with a frozen margarita scent (again, cause of a shave soap and after shave I use). I ordered a bottle of frozen margarita from Nature's Garden and... not happy with it. It's nice but nothing like the shave soap and after shave I've been using which smell exactly like the frozen beverage. So.. I figured I can come here and ask if anyone knows of a good frozen margarita FO that I can use and where I can get it.
Any help and suggestions will be appreciated.

I can't help with that, but I will say - stop over thinking your first batch. You don't have to have this scent for your first time and FOs can cause a lot of issues that you really don't need at this stage.

I haven't soaped with it, but the Lime Margarita from Camden Grey is really yummy. It's more of a traditional margarita scent though.

One thing about FOs, they can change a lot during soaping so that oob scent might get much better (or much worse). You really cannot tell until you've tried it.
