Comments: This fragrance is very true to pure maple syrup and awesome in most products, but did not hold up in cold process soap, even with cool oils and a significant water discount to control gel intensity. It flashed almost completely, leaving a very faint sort of nuttiness, but nothing you'd call maple. I soaped 2 10-lb batches, the first with 5oz of fragrance and the second with 8oz, hoping that it was a matter of low concentration of the fragrance itself as is often the case with FNWL fragrances but nope, it appears to be a low flash issue. Aside from losing scent strength significantly, it did not accelerate trace and oxidized to a perfect creamy maple candy color after a couple days on the shelf. So far the second batch is not sweating vanillin like so many overscented sweet fragrances tend to do. In other words, it soaped perfectly. Just wish I could smell it! And I'm pregnant, on top of being a human bloodhound.
FNWL Response: Hi Amanda, thanks very much for your detailed feedback. We will be speaking with our chemists to determine if the fragrance can be strengthened for use in high temperature applications, and we'll contact you with our findings.

"I'm fourteen, and want to start making natural health and beauty products at home for myself. I predict that when I'm older I will go into a business in this area because of your site. The information offered on your site has been amazing to a beginner like me. The range of products is amazing. Yours is the first place I have actually found Rhassoul clay. I've been searching for ages as the stuff works wonders on my face. There's so many other examples of the products like this , but too many to list. It's mind-boggling to think of how long I've been searching, and here you've got it all. Finally, I want to comment on your customer service. It's excellent. You give information and one thing that stood out to me is if there is a negative comment, you try to find out why and comment on that. I love how it's a personalized message that shows you've shown effort to make your customers happier. Overall, your site has wowed me so much I felt the need to send you this email, commenting on it. I haven't yet placed the order due to financial changes I've been making lately, but I can assure you, I will be soon :)"
