Silver Birch & Vetiver
(7 reviews)  


This is a scent that men will love - it's manly in the best possible way. A huntsman sits on his cabin porch peeling an orange. Around him the air is thick with the promise of a storm. The pine trees sway in the strong wind, pine cones falling to the earth with gentle thuds. Wild flowers dance in unison as the breeze sweeps over them. Silver birch leaves, clementine peel and crisp ozonic notes are followed by pine cone accords and white geraniums with a dry down of vetiver, sandalwood, and sequoia woods.

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.

Not many scents make me say wow! But, Wow!, this scent is incredible. If I could use one word to describe it, it would be "real". It feels like you are standing in the middle of nature and smelling the real thing. Everyone loves it. It's a seller!

Disadvantages: none

A client requested a scent based on a description of a candle she'd smelled in a shop. After much searching lo and behold here it is. We've added this scent to our line. We love it and our customers love it. Not the usual pine-y pine scent. This scent brings soft pine cone, soft, sweet orange, and ozone together in an uplifting blend.

Ordering more of this lovely scent. Made 2 batches of HP soap so far with it and I'm in love. The pine is so pleasant, no that harsh ammonia background. The pine is strong, but the other notes soften. The concentration is quite strong so you can use much less fragrance in your product, so that's an added bonus. Very masculine and it is a permanent part of my line.

Advantages: Scent sticks like white on rice!
Use less scent for great results, = more cost savings.

Disadvantages: None that I can think of.
