Comments: This fragrance smells delightful in the bottle, but when making cold process soap as well as cold process shaving soap, this fragrance does not stick, I do not recommend this fragrance. It might be fine for use in Hot Process and definitely for lotions or balms.

Comments: I was so excited to see that you had a Pinaud like fragrance as I dearly love that smell and wanted to use it for soap making. My husband encouraged me to buy a 16 oz bottle, something I typically don't do the first time. The fragrance is OK, but not what I would consider even close to the Pinaud notes. I hope someone, someday will formulate a closer likeness of this product.
FNWL Response: Hi Shari: Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. Is there a chance that you are basing your assessment by smelling the fragrance oil directly out of the 16oz. bottle? Doing so can be highly misleading because our fragrance oils are highly concentrated. The formulation for each fragrance oil is based on the aroma achieved after incorporation into soap and other cosmetic/personal care formulations. While some fragrance oils smell incredible straight from the bottle, others simply don't until they're incorporated into soap or other personal care formulations.
"Each time I use your Web site, I am thrilled with how complex and thorough the information is and yet how intuitive and simple the site is to use. I do the majority of my shopping online and work as part of a huge global company's knowledge distribution arm, so I review and use lots of sites. The FNWL site is the best I have encountered from a consumer prospective. It must take an incredible amount of resources to maintain and I just want to say thank you for going to that level of effort! I have learned so much from reading the detailed product information and loved the items I've purchased. Thank you!"
