Hi All,
I got so excited when I saw WSP 25% off fragrance oils this morning as I'm still trying to figure out what my favorite scents are. What are you all stocking up on?

I have only tried green tea with lemongrass and I LOVE it.

I want to try Tonka and Vetiver; it's in my cart, but I'm waiting for their mango butter to be back in stock so that I qualify for free shipping. Hopefully that happens before the FO sale is over!

As a long time (10 years) customer of WSP, where I got FO freebies on a regular basis, IME and IMHO, only 1 out of 100 of their FOs are "keepers". Blooming Tulips is one. The fragrance is spot on. My wholesale customer offered it as a "Special Edition" every year in April. Always sold out by Mother's Day!

On the other hand, I'm testing their FO/EO BLENDS and buy them only when on sale.
Thanks for the head's up!

Tested in CP to date:
Bladderwrack - EO & FO 3386 (Special Order) :thumbs: :thumbs: (My all-time favorite fragrance!)
Pink* - EO & FO Blend (Special Order) :thumbs::thumbs: Nice Floral. Survived Rabatch. Still going strong.)
Eucalyptus Spearmint - EO & FO Blend 608 - :thumbs: (sticker!)
Verbena* - EO & FO 348 - 👎 (Faded)
Rainforest* - EO & FO 592 - :thumbs::thumbs:
Relaxation - EO & FO Blend 745 - :thumbs:
Jasmine Vanilla* - EO & FO Blend 504 - Disappointing 👎

@Zany_in_CO the Bladderwrack EO/FO blend is available from WSP in a 25lb drum for only $697.02. :eek:

Meanwhile, my cart with them is in a holding pattern. Hoping that their mango butter is back in stock tomorrow as anticipated, so I can place one order for that and the FOs, before the FO sale is over on 5/7.

Thanks for the feedback and their scents may not be "keepers". I'm looking forward in reporting back on how the fragrances react/retain in CP soap. I seem to be more particular with scents compared to my friends, so really hoping my testers give honest feedback for my future assortment. Sad about Verbena* as I was really looking forward to that scent!

I'd like to find a Lemon Verbena that sticks. So far, no luck.
Lemon Verbena was the only fragrance my sister ever wanted when she could still use fragranced products. I used lemon verbena FO from a number of suppliers, and used to think they were pretty much all alike. I have a small amount left from Rustic Essentuals (before they were a WSP affiliate, so I don't know if this is still true) that I compared with Verbena FO from WSP. The RE is better. I don't know about sticking on its own since I always blend it with another lemon (usually meyer lemon). I remember Sweet Cakes Lemon Verbena was also very nice, but I've only used it in M&P. When I need it next, I think I will try the SC version again.

WSP has two Rainforest - the EO/FO blend @Zany_in_CO mentioned which I have not tried, and a FO only which I have tried and was one of the most disappointing FOs I've ever had. I honestly couldn't even smell it OOB. Maybe a little whiff when a few drops were placed on a paper towel and sniffed at very close range - it's cheap, but don't waste your money. I don't understand the good reviews that one has.

That was my reaction to most of WSP's FOs. :rolleyes:

I do believe the key to FO longevity is combining them with an EO. I have Litsea but I don't have Meyer Lemon... I need to get me some! 😁 TY.
Sweet Cakes Lemon Verbena was also very nice, but I've only used it in M&P. When I need it next, I think I will try the SC version again.
Sweet Cakes is where I first encountered my favorite Bladderwrack as a "Natural" Blend. They stopped making it. I have to admit, the name is a bit of a turnoff so maybe that's why it didn't sell well? They used to be really popular years ago until shipping got too expensive.

I haven't found that to be the case. Most of the FOs I have ordered from WSP are strong enough - and I do like a lot of fragrance in my soaps. Nature's Garden on the other hand...

Just to be clear, the Meyer Lemon (or any lemon I blend with verbena) is an FO, not EO. I gave up long ago trying to use Lemon EO in soap - it just fades too quickly. As for blending with Litsea or Lemongrass, I find that lemon EO still fades and I just smell the Litsea (which I love) or Lemongrass. So I just use those EOs if I want a lemon note in an EO blend, or as a stand alone fragrance.

I've used Lavender Woods and Honey. It has a an extremely strong lemon note that does eventually fade, but know that you'll be smelling lemons for a solid month with that one. Once it fades out and the lavender and wood are the main notes, I like it quite a bit.

The ones I have bought more than once from them are: (or would buy)
-their honey FO (used to be call honey fragrance formulator). It only díscolors slightly, behaves well and lasts.
-balsam pine (used to be a fragrance formulator too) very strong
- musk (also a former formulator for blends)
-Eucalyptus and spearmint Fo/Eo blend
-maple roasted southern peach (discolors some but lasts)
-market peach, at least a month in, still strong.

the ones I would not buy again:
-recently I tried their Banana FO, it faded a lot in cp
- their lavender Fo 91 (smells like a generic floral)
- their peppermint candy cane - faded a lot for me too
-bubble gum. (Faded) but I like it in bath bombs

Pure Rain is my absolute favorite! Great in candles too!

I have to agree with Zany, I found very few from WSP that I considered keepers. Their Nag Champa is the best I ever found and their Tobacco Leaf and Amber are one of my favorites, which was a big seller for me along with my DB. I was given some Lime Coconut Verbena from a gal going out of business and it was also a keeper. Oh yes, Vanilla Noel I really like but usually, I mixed it.
