Sorry, I thought Nurture had discontinued Flame Tree! I'll def be buying more when it comes back in stock!
So here are my notes: 0.5 oz ppo in a slow moving recipe (Lard) for a tilted tiger design and it behaved beautifully. This one discolors to a medium brown so I used Nurture's Orange Vibrance, Red Vibrance, and Firefly micas for my stripes because, well 'flames', ya know :)

Here's the deal - I am new to CP soap making. I've been making M&P soap for years, but just branched into CP soap making this year. The first thing I discovered with CP soap is that the fragrances can disappear or morph or cause the batter to seize. I QUICKLY learned that I need to make test bars of a fragrance before committing pounds of soap to a fragrance that doesn't make it through the cure period!

I've searched the fragrance review chart AND contributed my own personal experiences to it! I've searched the forum itself. Most of the threads that had fragrance recommendations are older (2014 - 2017). I know a lot of reformulations on the scents have been made over the last couple of years and that could effect an old recommendation.

I've ordered from Bramble Berry, Candle Science, Rustic Escentuals, and Micas and More.
I've tested about 50 Fragrances so far. I had a lot of $1 samples from Candle Science and Rustic Escentuals LOL . I started doing the testing 2 months ago. So far, I can testify that the following scents do last at least 2 months:
BB - Sweet Cranberry
RE - Honeydew, Barbershop 1920's, & Lemon Sugar Bundt Cake
CS - White Tea & Berries

I'm out of fragrance samples! I don't want to invest any more money in trying scents that don't have a proven track record in CP soap. I want fragrances that last at least 6 months! It will be another 5 months before I know which of my 50 samples are going to last that long. Honestly, many did not make it pass the 1 month mark!

I make soap every couple of months. It is a crafting outlet for me. All this testing is more like work than crafting and it is stealing the joy from my soul! I am close to tucking my tail and running back to melt and pour for some soul satisfying crafting time. PLEASE, SHARE your recommendations for fragrances that last over 6 months in CP soap.

Based on my research - These are the scents that I am thinking about trying next...

Bramble Berry (BB) - Fresh Mango, Grapefruit Lily, Peach Prosecco

Candle Science (CS) - Oakmoss & Amber, Lavender FO

Day Star (DS) - Toffee Sugar Crunch

Lone Star (LS) - Love Spell type, Pink Chiffon

Nature's Garden (NG) - Anjou Pear Blossom, Bamboo White Grapefruit, Baby Bee, Bayberry,
Bite Me, Channel No 5, Cracklin Birch, Lemon Sugar,
Mango Sorbet, Nag Champa, Pumpkin Apple Butter,
The Perfect Man, Ruby Red Grapefruit, Satsuma,
& Sweet Orange Chili Pepper,

Nurture Soap - Flame Tree, Awaken

Pure Fragrance - Dragon's Blood

Rustic Escentuals (ES) - Redwood, Satsuma, London Fog, Lemon Verbena,
Hippie Chick, & Tuscan Fields

If you have used any of the above in the last 2 years and can verify that they last at least 6 months in CP, please let me know.

If you have any other recommendations, PLEASE SHARE... I know RE and CS usually do a $1 sale in about a month. So, it would be a good time to try some more scents from them!

Does NG do sales? I found a lot of recommendations for their scents.
[/QUOTE. In all the fragrances I’ve tested from different companies nature garden and bramble berry almost always works well with my three different cold process recipe.

Most of the above are verified. I made notes on any that weren't verified.

RE has already announced that they aren't doing their yearly sale this year due to a bottle shortage.

I've never seen a sale from NG other than $2 fragrance of the month sale.

cerelife has found that Daystar's Bella Morte fragrance will last for YEARS in CP soap. It is a "sleeper scent that disappears after soaping and blooms during cure".

I need to add Moonlight Path Type from Fragrance Buddy to the list of long lasting scents. My sample bar is a year old is still going strong.

While Pure Fragrance Oil's DB is nice mine is nicer with a higher flash point and a better price at the moment. Mine also does not go purple dark brown like PF's DB.

Do you have any specific recommendations for FB scents that you have tried that have lasted at least 6 months in cp soap?


:dance::dance: I bought the Vanilla Vanilla when it went on clearance a couple of months ago! I have a sample bar of it curing now. Totally AWESOME that this scent should be a WINNER ,WINNER, Chicken Dinner! :dance::dance:

@cerelife

Can you describe that Wild Mountain Honey fragrance? I am one of those people who do not appreciate the very popular scent of Oatmeal, Milk, and Honey. I do not know which part of that scent (Oatmeal, Milk, or Honey aspects) turns me off, but something does. How similar is the Wild Mountain Honey to the Oatmeal, Milk & Honey fragrance?
Which Wild Mountain Honey? If it's Peaks's, or Brambleberry's (the same) - I can say that oob it smells like a mistake - drove all of us in the house....out of the house simply by putting a dollop on a paper towel. It's far more flowery and dusty smelling than honey. HOWEVER - mixed it with BB's orange peel fo 2;1 and it's got possibilities.

NG Sweet Orange Chili - technically lasts 6 months, but it really starts losing notes pretty quickly.
RE Redwood and Crackling Birch stick well. I love Redwood. And I have some Crackling Birch that's years old and faded quite a bit - but still respectably scented.

Hopefully I'll have time later to add my favorite fo stickers to the list.

I don't think you can ever get away from testing. It seems that scents are constantly being changed to meet new IFRA standards as well as supply changes. Plus, we all evaluate scents slightly different and use slightly different formulations. I agree that I want long lasting and also that it keeps getting harder to find them. Ones I have been happy with:
The following I have purchased within 18 months.

Pure - Lavender Sage, Black Vetiver Coffee
Oregon Trails - Black Raspberry Vanilla, Egyptian Musk, Egyptian Dragon,
WSP - Amazing Style, Beach

Here are a some scents that I can confirm last for over a year:

BB - Lush Succulent and Wild Rose are still strong in salt bars I made a year ago with the FOs at 6% ppo. The Lush Succulent is so strong that I will drop it to 3% in the next batch I make.

MMS - from a batch of test soaps I made in June 2019 - Jacob, Osmanthus, Somali Rose, Bay Rum and Eastern Amber at 3% ppo are still distinctly detectable, but not strong. Green Tea is barely/possibly detectable. Sap Moss is coming through strong, and it’s a scent I love, but unfortunately it’s been discontinued.

Nurture - Aromatherapy at 5% still hanging around in soaps from July 2019.

After going through my archived 2019 soaps, here are more FOs that have stuck well for me for more than a year.

BB:
Birchwood Oud - still going strong in a soap from Aug 2019
Cranberry Fig - solid scent, soap is from Sept 2019
Sea Salt - strong in salt bars from July 2019
Sensuous Sandalwood - strong, from Nov 2019
White Ginger and Amber - apparently I used this FO in many soap batches back in the summer of 2019. It’s a solid performer, holding well.
ETA: White Tea & Ginger from early Jan. 2020 still smells great

WSP:
Tasmanian Pepperberry - still smells wonderful in a soap from Nov 2019. I used it at just under 5%. This “natural fragrance oil” is expensive, but I would buy it again.
ETA: Rice Milk and Cardamom, also from WSP’s natural fragrance oil group, is only weakly detectable.

NS:
Champagne - detectable, but not strong. From July 2019.

It’s just 9 months for this one from a soap I made in March 2020:
BB: Aloe & Lily - solid, but not strong
