Comments: I was disappointed with this oil because it smelled like a strong vinaigrette, nothing like the berry smell. Not their fault if that's just how all blackberry seed oil smells, but their description of it having a characteristic sweet nutty scent or whatever is way misleading.
FNWL Response: Hi T, Our Blackberry Seed Oil is a fresh, 100% pure oil produced only from blackberry seeds. It is not an essential oil or fragrance oil. It is customary for vegetable oil suppliers to describe the oil as "characteristic" when its aroma is typical for oil produced from that species. Aroma can be highly subjective, but we're concerned and respectfully disagree with your aromatic comments. In the case of our premium quality Blackberry Seed Oil, the aroma tends to be perceived as being sweeter or fruitier in aroma than a number of other vegetable oils. We are a wholesale supplier that primarily serves professional artisans and manufacturers. Our brief aromatic summaries are consistent with the language used in our industry for describing the aroma of vegetable oils.
"Your prices are better on just about everything I need (not everything, but most), and I love that there is no minimum order. I also love the resource of being able to e-mail you and ask questions about the best way to use your products. I'd like to expand into offering all natural body care stuff, but sometimes I have questions. I've been telling anybody who could benefit about this site - it's amazing. Just keep up the good work."
