Thank-you! What are phthalates?I have a bunch of their FOs. I've soaped coconut lime, black raspberry vanilla, juicy apricot, after the rain, and caramel coffee. Just soaped aqua di gio this weekend. So far everything has been sticking. Caramel coffee mellows out to a really nice vanilla caramel scent, less on coffee.Coconut lime is less on the coconut and more limey after cure. My friend who doesn't like coconut scented things really likes this one. I really like juicy apricot cause it's not one of those overly sweet fruity scents and has been sticking. BRV is probably the most liked fruity scent amongst friends and family from Nurture. After the rain is a nice fresh scent that everyone has liked. I just used it in a salt bar a couple of weeks ago.
I'm not a fan of island getaway and Caribbean holiday too much. Island getaway has more of a detergenty smell to me. Caribbean holiday is wayyy to grapey for me. But I haven't soaped either. I also have fresh picked apples but I've read it accelerates like crazy so I have to muster up the courage to do that one.
Keep in mind a good amount of their FOs have phthalates in them. I think only a few such as coconut lime and aqua di gio don't. Carrie is in the process of reformulating them without. I know some people mind and some people don't. https://www.google.com/search?q=phthalates&spell=1&sa=X&ved=0CBsQvwUoAGoVChMI8r7hl9SvxwIVTFyICh1_nQHX
