    Good job, Plumeria as a B to work with here. It also doesn't sell well :( I think I have 1 bar left in the Misfits bin

    Thanks. I only sell mainly MP on eBay, so technically I do not sell. I just made those 4 bars.

    I did not have any issues with the FO I used, though.

    :dance: I only did a tester batch too. It is an old FO but being floral in my high Palm recipe it didn't do very well. I should say, "I" didn't do well.
    It's Pretty and I like the sparklies on top

    Love Frangipani, I use to make it all the time, white/yellow swirl and glitter on the top of course. Pretty with the apricot colour on top.

    Thanks! I am not big on florals. I think I prefer fruity ones. But this one smelled different to me.

    I was trying to mimic the flower.

    Thank you both!

    I make a Plumeria using Plumeria from California Candle and it is one of my best women selling fragrances. This is the most realistic Plumeria I ever found, most either smelled phony, plastic, chemical or accelerated to soap on a stick. This one does accelerate but even in my high palm quick moving recipe I can do one swirl. I separate my color at emulsion, mix the color and bring that to light trace, quickly pour the fo into the main batter mix well quickly and pour. The fragrance also sticks like glue, and has been a consistent seller for at least 6 yrs. In fact I just poured 2 batches this week

    ETA: no discoloration and if you use a 30% lye concentration you get a little more work time in a slower moving recipe. One with lard works well with this fo
