Calabrian Bergamot & Violet

Calabrian Bergamot & Violet
(13 reviews)  


A fabulous hidden treasure from the heart of Tuscany! The lavish floral heart pairs sweet bergamot and delicate violet with no perfume undertones - it's a fresh, gentle breeze from a lush Italian oasis. The middle notes of sparkling citron and fresh pear are seated upon a delicate base of soft sandalwood. A premium candle scent and soap fragrance for complete gift sets. (Pair with our Tuscan Cypress for a mix of sparkling fresh Italian leaves and florals!) This is the SAME fragrance oil that is seen on other sites selling fragrance oils for soap for over $30 a pound! Why can we offer it for less? We buy wholesale fragrance oils in bulk and pass the savings to our customers. If you'd like to add a beautiful soft undertone to round out the florals, blend with a hint of Vanilla Bean....really!
CP Notes: Slight acceleration, no discoloration. Scent is strong.

All About IFRA

IFRA guidelines - what does it mean?

Let's discuss IFRA (International Fragrance Association) and what that means for you...

From their website: The IFRA Standards form the basis for the globally accepted and recognized risk management system for the safe use of fragrance ingredients and are part of the IFRA Code of Practice. This is the self-regulating system of the industry, based on risk assessments carried out by an independent Expert Panel.

The Expert Panel is made up of renowned independent experts from the fields such as dermatology, toxicology, pathology and environmental sciences. Their role is to evaluate the data on a fragrance ingredient to see if it supports the current use level, to make sure that there is no risk for the consumer. In cases where the safety assessment does not support the current use, the Panel instructs IFRA to issue a Standard either restricting or banning a material.

We have IFRA on all fragrance oils and flavor oils on our website. Click on the product name and below the description you'll see a set of tabs. IFRA is one of those tabs. You can click on that to see the *max* levels allowed for specific applications.

What do the max levels mean? Let's use Almond Paradise as an example. The IFRA guidelines on this state that there are no restrictions for soaps, shampoos, lotions, etc. So does that mean you can use 100% in your product? No. That would mean your product consists of straight fragrance oil.

The IFRA states the *max* that can be used, not the recommended amount. It is the responsibility of the maker to do their research to see what the recommended usage rate of fragrance oil for their particular recipe is.

For soap, as a general rule of thumb you will use up to 5% of fragrance oil in Cold Process (CP) soap and up to 3% in Melt and Pour (M&P) soap.

So if you see a fragrance oil and the IFRA says 23% for soap, don't use 23%. IFRA is important when it comes to lower numbers. There are a few fragrance oils that have max usage rates that are less than the percentages shown above. In that case, you can only use the max shown for the oil.

This is a beautiful and complex floral bouquet! It's almost a laundry fresh scent. Amazing cold and hot throw in the wax melts I made.

Advantages: The fragrance notes seem to change beautfully over time.

Disadvantages: The notes don't necessarily serve well for body products and would be best used in home fragrance and/or laundry soap.
