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.
"I use (and love, love, love!) your Pearlesecent Micas which get me compliments all the time, from coworkers to makeup artists at swanky cosmetic counters. It's cool because people are always asking me where I bought my eyeshadow and it's satisfying to say, "I didn't buy it-- I made it!" As someone with a darker-than-medium skin tone, it's great to be able to blend my own colours that actually show up on me, e.g., 1 part Golden Glow to 1 part Matte Orange = "Yummy Peach"."
