So, I've made a hot process soap with NG's French Vanilla twice now.

First batch, it smelled off, definitely not vanilla. I was thinking my batch may have been too hot when I added the FO.

Second batch, made sure to wait until it was down to 120° F before adding, still smells off, not vanilla.

Anyone have any thoughts on this or know of a sure thing Vanilla scent?

I tried it once a long time ago and thought it smelled like plastic, never tried again. I have a couple vanillas I haven't put into soap yet but have used them in scrub and lotion. WSP Vanilla Bean Noel and Warm Vanilla Sugar. I like the VBN better of the two. Plan on trying out t in soap soon.

I'm due to post my Vanilla test results, I'm so sorry I've been so behind.

My top favorites are Vanilla Bean from Natures Garden and Vanilla Bean Noel from WSP.

I promise I'll post my full Vanilla results before this year is up.
