(23 reviews)  


Enter the smoking room - where the gentlemen in fine smoking jackets rest in leather high back chairs enjoy a Cuban cigar. With hints of fruity wine and spicy cinnamon, warm cloves, aromatic incense, and earthy patchouli - this spicy and somewhat sweet fragrance oil just begs to be made into a man's line of products. Base notes of tobacco leaf and oriental spice provide the perfect foundation on which the other notes meld perfectly to form the sheer heaven that is Cuban Tobacco. This would make an excellent bar of soap, shaving cream, aftershave, or candle.

Customers interested in Cuban Tobacco fragrance oil were also were also interested in related products such as melt and pour soap bases, supplies for soap making, bath bomb molds, and wholesale candle making supplies.

CP Notes: Soaped very well. No A, very slight discoloration to a yellow/amber. Scent stays strong and does not morph.

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.

We love this fragrance. It works really well in soy candles and it smells just like you are in a cigar shop but in a very pleasant way.
