Bergamot & Honey fragrance oil is comprised of top notes of strawberry, bergamot, and tropical passion flower. These notes mingle with sweet honey, almond and rose geranium as the middle notes. Resinous olibanum and aromatic balsams blend together to create the base notes in this delicious smelling fragrance blend.
Tested 6/3/18 by Carrie T. (owner) in a recipe of 50% lye solution with 7% superfat at 70 degrees. Recipe is 35% olive, 35% palm, 20% coconut, and 10% castor. Noted reverse trace with this recipe! The longer trace time will allow for more time to make detailed swirls in cold process soap. This fragrance smells great and performs perfectly in CP.

I loved this scent at first whiff! It reminded me of a body oil my mom would let me use as a child. It might be the bergamot that I love the most, but the warm and comforting notes of honey, florals and fruit are all so lovely. Soaps scented with this FO have become one of the favorites in the community that I sell to.
I make hot processed soap and have generally had no problem at all with the behavior of this FO except for one batch that I suspect I didn't mix the oil in thoroughly enough and my bars ended up quite soft and greasy. I've had those bars curing for a solid 6 weeks now and they're still a bit softer than I'd like. Since then, I started using sodium lactate in all my batches and being sure to thoroughly blend in the FO.
One of my first FOs when I started making CP soap last year. I have saved a bar which I just gave the sniff test. Still a nice subtle scent after 7 months! I kept the bottle to remind me to reorder at some point and here I am!
I absolutely LOVE this scent! The Bergamot smells fresh and the Honey nice and sweet. I haven’t soaped with it yet, but can’t wait to!
Bergamot Honey Fragrance
I made two batches of goat milk and oatmeal CP soap with this fragrance. It behaved well, no problems. The fragrance is light and very fresh, definitely one of my top picks. I will buy again.
This is another NS FO I'd been eyeing for awhile & just now worked up the nerve to go for it! I say "nerve", as previous to soaping with NS's FO's, I didn't stray far from my usual FO suppliers. After ordering about 26 different FO samples from Nurture however (and being blown away by ALL of them), I now buy FO's with complete confidence from this outstanding company, and am no longer hesitant to try any of the FO's offered here, as I've not been disappointed AT ALL! I've even been inspired to break out of my "shell" more, and try different scents I normally would've shied away from, because I've been so pleasantly surprised! This FO in particular was everything I'd hoped it would be! This isn't a FO I would call "weak" AT ALL, as OOB, I find it to be wonderfully fragrant and gorgeously complex! When I received this in the mail, all my nose could initially detect was a very crisp, tart bergamot scent. I love bergamot, so that wasn't a problem at all! However, when I came back to it a few hours later, after it had acclimated to the temp in my home- WOW! Those crisper bergamot notes mellowed some, allowing for notes of warm, golden, sweet honey to shine through! The scent is uplifting & refreshing, yet cozy, delicious & comfy too! It's truly the best of both worlds, and a delectable masterpiece! I've not soaped with it yet, but I've found all Carrie's CP notes to be very accuate in my own experiences too, so I'm really excited to make something fabulous with this exquisite FO!
