Fragrance Chypre Rose
Date Made 11/8/2013
Fragrance Amount Ounces 1. oz
Soap Poundage 1 lb
Soap Type CP - Trinity + 1  CPOP
Discoloration Issues FO is darker brownish color so when added to soap batter it immediately turned darker and yellow.  After trace and pouring it was getting darker. CP with blanket insulation provided a vanilla typical color with dark on outside and lighter on inside. After two days of cure the soap is evening out with it being a med dark color. I believe after cure it will be as dark as most vanillas. 
Acceleration Slight but not a problem with this formula. If adding colors suggest soap cooler and less water discount.
Ricing  None
Seize None
Scent Strength Strong. Used one ounce per pound and could go less .6 - .8 should be fine.
Notes Being a floral it is expected that it could possibly accelerate trace so I was not surprised to see this fragrance move a bit quicker than others. I would like to try this doing a CP Freezer as I think the gel increased the darkening of this batch. Soaping with cool temps, use plenty of water and go easy with stick blending and there should be time to do at least one color or a minimal swirl. If you want to do a brighter color use some TD or only fragrance half the batch and then color the non-fragranced half; this fragrance is strong enough to carry a half scent batch with no issues.
