I haven't tried a lot of FOs from RE, but I agree that Lemon Verbena is very good. Lemon Slices is a nice, clean lemon. Raspberry Lilac is very nice, and I think it actually slowed trace. Arctica is another clean smelling one, well behaved and seems to be sticking well. Sea Kelp and Ocean Breeze were both well behaved, but I can't speak to scent retention yet. I haven't soaped Woolen Blanket or Redwood yet, but I like both OOB and think I will blend them together.

Older thread, and I'm not sure I ever updated all of the tests I did...and I'm still working on testers LOL. Watch out, the sale can lead to lots of 1oz bottles hanging around!
Thanks for posting that! Lots of info. As for your last sentence, too true!!!
...Actually, I made two identical orders so I have 2 oz of each since I can make my regular batch size with that amount.
Brilliant! Thanks for the tip!

My wholesale customer recommended a few good sellers:
Essence of Jesus - We renamed it "Star of Bethlehem" and sold out.
Applejack & Peel - Best seller for the fall and cold months. Add a splash of cinnamon.
Coconut Lime Verbena
Karma Sutra - at 0.5 oz PPO - quick trace so soap cool & work quickly. Strong scent
Lemon Verbena - at 0.7 oz PPO it's a light scent; CP Notes: No A or D. Scent is very strong, may need to go lower than 1 oz. PPO
Victorian Pine - best seller at Christmas; best "Christmas Tree" scent
She also said
I'd buy from them more often - prices are good and so is quality - but shipping costs are ridiculous - she uses FedEx only.
So, I checked out what shipping from SC to CO would be for 20 1-oz FOs:
Subtotal: $56.02 (pre-sale prices)
Shipping cost: $15.46
Total: $71.48 (vs. $35.46 on sale)

This is the first time I've shopped at RE and I found all their FOs listed in one place where you can easily go down the list to find what you're looking for. Tick on the name and it opens a window to the scent where you'll find info on fragrance notes and how it behaves in CP. The reviews are helpful too cuz they comment on how it soaps plus "advantages" and "disadvantages". All-in-all, a positive shopping experience for me. Link to All 538 FOs:
