(7 reviews)  


Make sure you are sitting down when you smell this oil, it will make you swoon! Heady, sweet, rich, and irresistible! Even avowed "Musk Haters" love this fragrance! A great scent for men's products, it lends itself to unisex applications. Men and women alike have expressed to us just how much they love this fragrance. This oil does it all, makes great cold process soap, stinky-strong candles, non-morphing in your body product applications, and killer incense and potpourri oils. A must have scent! It also blends well with a myriad of other oils to create new scents. (Try patchouli, sandalwood, and rose!) One of our favorites around here and another oil that we simply cannot run low on "or else"! If you like something different, unlike anything you've tried before, you will love this blend. Our UPS driver and mail man sure do!

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.

I was hesitant about ordering this due to the high vanillin content but so glad I did. At first the scent is very sweet of strawberries and very little if any of musk. However, after making cp soap the musk comes through. I used a color stabilizer to counter act the discoloration and so far it hasn't turned. Behaved very well in cp soap.

Advantages: Love the scent

Disadvantages: Can discolor to tan if you do not use a stabilizer.

I love this! It reminds me of a head shop. I think I had incense that smelled like this a long time ago. Anyway, it takes me back. It throws amazing in soy.

Not crazy about this one. I wanted to like it, the reviews sound great. But it reminds me of my old strawberry shortcake scented plastic doll from when I was a little kid. And not in a good way.

Disadvantages: Discolored to a medium tan.

Loving this scent!! Dont judge this one out of the bottle! One little tiny paraffin tart which I am currently testing in my bathroom (in a dollar store tealight oil burner mind you!) Is stealing the show! :) Ive been pouring & test burning fall scents all day; and THIS ONE -- I can totally smell this lovely scent above all the others in my living room! Fresh, clean, fruity & soft (not to be confused with "weak"!!) Yet definitely not a food/candy type scent. Glad I tried this one! Its a keeper for me!

Advantages: Throwing exceptionally well in a paraffin tart

Disadvantages: Dont judge out of bottle whatsoever!
