Soap Fragrance loss
by Jeffrey Dromm
I used a Pomegranate FO from Natures Garden at .7 ounces per pound. The CP soap smelled great, but after 3 weeks of curing the scent has faded. I read somewhere that you can revitalize the soaps fragrance by putting the soap in a closed container for 2 to 3 weeks with some of the Fragrance oil. Is this correct? If so do you have a procedure I could use? Thanks
I'm afraid I've never heard of this technique.
How have you been storing the soap? Is it in a location where you would be able to pretty much smell it every day?
Our noses contain receptors that can become "full" of a scent and you may not be able to smell it after a while. Have people who live outside your home also said that the soap lacks scent?
Not all fragrances have staying power either. Some don't perform as well as others and sometimes you have to do a bit of trial and error to find ones that are keepers.
Try washing with the soap as well...sometimes the outer layer loses its scent but after the first wash you can smell it again.
