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.
"I just came home this morning from spending a week in Iceland. While there, I enjoyed time in their natural hot springs and experienced first hand the healing properties of their salt-water geothermal pools. I immediately went to FromNatureWithLove.com to see what salts you have to choose from. I knew that you'd have Dead Sea salts and hoped that if I bought them I'd get similar results. What I found astounded me (yet, it's FNWL, so I really shouldn't be surprised that you had it). You have Iceland's wonderful salts! As if I needed another reason to love you! Keep up the UNBELIEVABLY WONDERFUL work!"
