S.O.A.P. Panel: Sugar Scrub Cubes

I personally love sugar scrub cubes.  They are easy to make, take few ingredients, and are easy to use.  I was interested to see if the sugar would alter the scents at all.  Here is what I found out:

First off let’s talk about my recipe.

2 oz Melt and Pour Soap
2 oz Liquid Oil (I used grapeseed)
6 oz White Sugar
1 ml FO

Here’s how the FO’s came through:

  1. Sweet, nice gardenia smell
  2. Deeper more complex floral
  3. This smells just like #1! (Interesting!)
  4. Sweet and slightly fruity
  5. Caramel smell, complex
  6. Very light clean smell
  7. Fruity floral, very complex
  8. Herbal, camphor or eucalyptus
  9. Very sweet
  10. Deep floral, complex, still smell lilac

I do think the sugar/oil did alter some of the notes in these FOs.  It was harder to pick out individual top and bottom notes.  I feel like many of the top notes disappeared in this application, but still the FO’s are lovely.
