Jeweled Fir fragrance oil is a unique blend of crisp pine notes and tangy citrus followed by subtle hints of light cinnamon and spring flowers. A background of sweet musk, vanilla beans and soothing wood complete the fragrance.

Based on the description, I was expecting something a little more light and green smelling. Now don't get me wrong, I actually really like this scent, and it works perfectly for the soap I was trying to make. But if anything, this is more of a dark woods smell, gnarled bark and warm spice, with little flecks of sunlight peeking through the leaves (that's the citrus). A more "mature" masculine smell. Offered the FO bottle to a friend to sniff, and she said, "Whoa, this smells kind of like aftershave." Soaped like a dream-- I got some really interesting and intricate swirls without a lot of effort.
Unique Sexy Manly Pine Scent
I Received this as a Freebie with my last order..and Im so excited to make this in Some Wax!! I don't Usually Love Pine or Manly scents, but this is Amazing!!
I normally love everything I get from Nuture Soaps-everything.
I normally love everything I get from Nuture Soaps-everything. This probably is great in wax, but in CP Soaps its just OK, but I'm only 7 days into cure so this may one that mellows to something awesome!
I am not typically a fragrance oil kind of soap maker. But jeweled Fir is absolutely INTOXICATING!!!
I doctored my colors up with varying amounts of cocoa powder and activated charcoal to play up the lovely golden discoloration of the Jeweled Fir.
So totally worth it!!!
Unless it goes perfectly with the "scent theme", I don't use discoloring FO's very often because they can be restricting in what I can do with my soap design. VCS can be expensive (& stinky!) for what's usually a temporary fix anyway, so for these reasons, I often avoid anything that discolors past light tan. For me to consider using a discoloring FO in one of my soapy projects, it's gotta smell SO good, it makes the discoloration worth it. Well, after reading countless raves about this FO on FB, I decided I'd give it a try, and I gotta say, this is SO TOTALLY one of those "worth it" FO's!! It's hard for me to properly describe this scent because there's a lot more going on than just your typical pine scent, but it's excellent for the holidays, & definitely a scent that could be loved year-round too! It smells like being outside, surrounded by nature! Fir & brisk woodsy notes really transport the senses to the great outdoors, but an underlying hint of warmth & cozy sweetness really knocks this scent out of the park! So count me in as the newest member of the "Jeweled Fir Fan Club"!😉 In CP- PERFECT BEHAVIOR! I needed my batter to stay very fluid to create a wood grain effect, and this FO did just that! Remained on it's best behavior from start to finish! I was able to take all the time I needed, despite incorporating a 1.5:1/liquid:lye ratio in my usual quick-moving recipe. I decided to call this batch "Tree Hugger" because this FO smellls SO AMAZINGLY GOOD, I wanted to give it a name that conveyed a foresty scent worth embracing all year long (pun intended)! Incorporating NS's "Fire Cider" mica in my wood grain pour added a warm, woody richness to the design itself, & embeds made with NS's "Savage Garden" (sprinkled with "Shimmer Gold" mica) & "Maya Gold" micas made this soapy project a stunning success! NS's "Winter Wonderland" FO speaks to my soul, but now I'm hearin' what "Jeweled Fir" has to say too! It's outstanding!
