Ylang ylang, tonka, rose and jasmine comprise The Grim Reaper fragrance oil. It is a fully indolic jasmine festival for the nose. If you love indolic jasmine, you will adore this scent! It is unabashedly floral, pungent, and strong. Compare to Lush® brand Death and Decay™
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. Very slight acceleration to the point of almost having none. I was really surprised with it being a heavy floral. Really easy to work with.

I just wrote a review for this fragrance, but I forgot to change the star rating. I’m giving this two stars because it smells amazing, but it riced in my cold process soap - I soap at room temp (about 75 F), and only hand-stirred the fragrance in. Right after I started stirring, I immediately saw little pieces or rice that had to be stick blended out, which brought it to a thicker trace than I wanted. So annoying!! Ugh, I should know better with florals! Never again Grim Reaper, never again!!
I've never smelled the Lush version, but I purchased a one ounce bottle on a whim, and tried it out in a loaf of CP soap. It smells absolutely fantastic! This is a rich feast for the nose - not to be missed if you enjoy deep, rich floral scents. I loved it so much I bought a bigger bottle. Can't wait to try this in body butter and bath fizzies!
Ended up here while searching for a dupe for Death and Decay by lush and im so happy i found you guys. This scent takes me to my happy place!!
Cant wait to use
Haven’t yet used it to make soap. It smells awesome!
