Foodie/bakery-type scents (with some exceptions) are usually a pass for me, and anything cherry is usually a hard pass (I've just noticed that some cherry-based fragrances can walk a thin line between being overly sweet/candy-like or cough syrupy/medicinal). BUT!... I have yet to come across a FO from NS that I haven't liked, and if you sell your soaps, you have to think about what customers will like too... not necessarily just FO's that the crafter likes. That being said, I gave this FO a try & I was absolutely floored by the fact that I LOVE IT!! At first sniff OOB, I was SOLD! This scent is absolutely DELICIOUS & wonderfully strong too! Sweet cherry notes are scrumptiously potent in this blend, but anything that might venture into "too sweet" territory is blissfully rounded out and accentuated by warm, delectable notes of cozy almond! It's a confectionary masterpiece that behaved like a mouthwatering dream in CP! Even with a 35% lye concentration & a faster-moving recipe, this FO actually decelerated trace for me, giving me PLENTY of time for lots of swirls & colors! I only added the FO to the browns & "Maya Gold" portions of my soap batter, and swirled in some "Winter White" and "My Red Obsession" micas (PERFECT cherry-red color btw!), which I left unscented to keep those colors unhindered by any discoloration. A healthy dusting of "Gold Dust" Enviroglitter was the beautiful cherry on top!😉 The scent in CP is absolute HEAVEN, and has only gotten better as the soaps have cured (the almond notes come out to play even more)! If you usually shy away from foodie-type FO's, or are leery of cherry scents, I definitely think you should give this FO a try... It just might change your mind!
This fragrance is heavenly. Maybe I love it because it smells just like some handcream my mom used. When I opened it, memories of my mother flooded my mind. I can't wait until it cures and I can share it with my siblings!
I have pros and cons on this!! Bare with me so what im saying won't be twisted or thought to be negative because it's far from it. When purchasing this scent I knew ahead of time it would not be a scent that I personally would enjoy BUT my customers do and love how strong and amazing it really is! So while it's not my choice I still have customers giving rave reviews over it!! The smell is so strong that when I pass my soap rack that's the one that overpowers everything else. But I am appreciative of a great scent for my customers happiness!! Thanks again Nurture Soap!
Oh my how beautiful this smell is in my CP soap. It is Devine. I used it for a cherry blossom themed shower.
