Tested 6/28/18 by Carrie T. (owner) in a recipe of 33% lye solution with 5% superfat at 75 degrees. Recipe is 35% olive, 35% organic and sustainable palm, 20% coconut, and 10% castor. I was prepared for rapid acceleration because of the reviews. I experienced the opposite. For me, this fragrance would not trace. I actually thought I had mismeasured because it stayed liquid for so long. I quit blending because my stick blender was getting hot.
Once I got the soap in the mold, it did set up rather quickly. There seems to be something - most likely temperature - that 'activates' this fragrance.
6/29/18 - I unmolded this the day after testing. The fragrance had heated up so much in the mold that it left a huge hole in the middle. When cut, it leaked fragrance everywhere. This is definitely not recommended for cold process!

I love this scent so much. It's one of the best coconut scents I have ever come across. This is wonderful for a lot of purposes, my favs are body wash, CP soap, & shampoo.
I may have to do a lotion or something. I forgot this fo acts up in cp. oh well, I still like the scent though.
My customers love coconut but the go CRAZY over this one. I will only purchase coconut from you guys.
Freakin' amazing scent!
NS, you guys nailed it with this one...TRUE coconut scent! The scent reminds me of one of my favorite BBW lotions I used to use that was tropically coconut but can't put my finger on which scent it was. All I know is that this WILL go on my line up of lotions and I REALLY hope you guys can start offering it in the 8 oz. and 1 lb. bottles because right now, I only have a sample bottle of it and that won't last long at all. LOL! Please let me know if you will be getting bigger sizes. Love it!
When she says "acts crazy in CP" she means it!
So I read the testing notes ahead of time and decided that I felt experimental this morning. I made a small batch with my sample size FO, and right away the soap started to separate. It zoomed instantly to a medium trace but with the most intense separation/ricing which made it a very weird texture. I just decided that I would stick with it and proceeded to stick blend the living daylights out of it. Eventually, after enough blending, it actually reversed course and went back to a very thin trace, almost just emulsion, without that separation I had been seeing. I kept blending on and off trying to see what it would do. It was VERY hot at this point, and I was wondering if it would actually HP itself in my soap pot. It didn't, and continued to progress through trace pretty much as I would expect with a normal FO. I added some oat flour for texture and poured it into the mold at a medium/thick trace...and then I tried to texture the top. It has the weirdest consistency, almost non-Newtonian. I have it now outside on the cold brick of my porch - it's about 24F outside so hopefully that will help to avoid zombie teeth/caverns, but I'm very excited to cut this tomorrow! What an experience!! Recommend trying this only if you enjoy freaking out for 20 minutes while stick blending it into submission. I might have to rebatch, but we'll see!! Probably would do better in HP.
