First Love fragrance oil starts out with strong notes of lemongrass and lime. The initial smell is invigorating and intoxicating. It lifts your spirits and makes you want to seize the day. After the initial citrus blast, this fragrance mellows into the most delicious caramel and tonka scent, and this is the scent that will be left in soap.
There's a subtle spiciness to this blend that can best be described as warm hay with a hint of ylang ylang. This scent is exotic, different, and captivating. This is the scent that made me fall in love with perfumery and fragrance oils. I hope you love it as much as I do! Compare to Lush® brand 25:43™

My first try on making the car diffuser and I must say the First Love is beyond my expectations. I will be ordering it again. Thank you.
This is such a unique and different fragrance, and by far the most amazing, intoxicating scent I've ever smelled (and that's saying something!). It has this complex, deep, high end scent that is just to die for! Like a mix of spicy, earthy, sweet and citrus. Smells like warm cinnamon caramel with a bit of lemon and that earthy hay type smell that one picks up in Roman Chamomile. I just can't say enough about it. I requested this as a sample as it is very pricy and after reading the description I was intrigued but didn't want to risk paying the steep price if I didn't like it. Well let me say I don't care how much it costs, I'm buying a big bottle on my next order! I've tested it in a lotion, body spray and CP soap so far and it stays true in all three, holds up very well and stays on the skin when used in lotion & spray. This is a strong fragrance and a little will go a long way. In CP my test bar had enough TD in it to make the batter bright white and it only discolored to a very light tan, although I didn't use as much FO as I normally would. The scent did hold up in CP through cure and smelled great but I'll likely be reserving this for lotions and sprays due to the cost.
This scent is really just something else. It’s a trying intriguing scent that everyone just loves. Well behaved in soap and amazing in everything else.
We Love the Scent
One of the best fragrance ever used.. !!!!
This is my top selling scent for the hard lotion bars in our line. We hand out samples as folks walk by our booth...and inevitably they don't get to far before they turn around and ask about this scent. Zero problems working with this fragrance and it holds! I have one lotion bar set aside for over a year and it's just as strong a scent as the fresh bars on the shelf.
