Good scent but accelerates

I do like this scent in my cold process soap. It's a manly scent that reminds me of the north woods in Maine. However, beware that this fragrance oil does accelerate in cold process soap. I had less than a minute to work with.

Just what my blend needed

We wanted a woodsy feel on this citrus mix we were making and this was the perfect amount of cool woodsy musk that we needed for our custom body butter order!
