Fragrance Orchard Pear
Date Made 11/11/2013
Fragrance Amount Ounces 1oz
Soap Poundage 1 lb
Soap Type CP - Trinity + 1  CPOP
Discoloration Issues Slight yellow when first poured, but may settle upon cure.Out of mold but not cut color is the color of the inside of a pear. Not white but a very pale yellow/tan. Two days out, cut and curring the soap has settled into a pale yellow color that can easily be colored to match just about any shade.
Acceleration Slight but not a problem with this formula. If adding colors suggest soap cooler and less water discount. Look at the poured soap, I was able to score the soap with peak swirls so consider the implications and soap cool and with very little water discount.
Ricing  None
Seize None
Scent Strength Med to Strong at first pour. Out of mold but not cut fragrance is still strong.  This fragrance is one that I have used for a long time and can honestly say that even after a year or more the fragrance is still noticable. As a side note this is a great choice for beer soaps as the notes from the pear play very nicely with the natural scent of beer.
Notes Nice fragrance that performs well in CP. There was some slight acceleration but nothing that can't be handled with cool temps and minimal water discount. Fragrance appears to be gaining the strength although unmolded but not cut and wrapped in plastic it is still strongly scented. Soap is now cut and curring and the scent has come back full force. It is possible that as little as .5 - .7 per pound of soap will be more than enough to nicely scent a pound of soap. While the color is holding at a pale yellow it may still lighten a bit more on curring. If the intention is to do multiple swirls I would start with very cool temps, have everything planned and watch the soap batter for very light trace. Once this FO start to move it sets up quickly.
