Bramble Berry S.O.A.P. Panel Fragrance Testing #10 After Two Weeks

As I write this, I can look out my window and see big, fluffy snowflakes that melt as they hit the ground.  It’s the perfect snowfall!  But I digress.

I have a habit of smelling soap that is curing.  Today I just had to have a fix of the #10 fragrance from Bramble Berry.  So I picked up the #10 CP soap and inhaled deeply.  When I removed it from my nose (just kidding - I didn’t really put my nose right on it.  But just in case, if you win a gift set, you might not want #10), I took a closer look at it. 

Here’s what I saw (#10 is the bottom right soap).  The last time I posted a picture of this baby at one week old, you could still see the maroon in #10. Not anymore.  Now there's just a very faint outline.

This seems really odd – I am seeing a kind of green sheen to the dark brown bar. Does anybody else see this?  The brown is actually a little darker than it appears in the picure above.  

Here’s the one week photo for comparison.

In comparing the 3 day photo with the 2 week photo, I see some differences in #8, #9 and #10.  The others haven't darkened much if at all.  Seeing #10 so dark after just two weeks makes me wonder if there will be any way to get something besides dark brown/green soap from this fragrance in Cold Process soap. 

You know what?  I really don’t care.  I just love fragrance #10.

Thanks for reading!   


  1. Yes I do see a sort of a greenish-black hue on #10. What could it mean??? :D

  2. Rose - I don't know. Thanks for letting me know I'm not alone in seeing some green :-) It still smells absolutely wonderful, even i it does have a green tinge.
