"I'm in love"
COMMENTS:  I purchased this FO to give it a try. Now I'm in love. It's so good that I can't stop smelling it and applying some lotion again and again. I also mixed it with some coconut vanilla FO and it's way too good to be true. Sadly it's very expensive.

COMMENTS:  Perfect floral for people who don't like powerful scents. I had no trouble with acceleration but I do agree with an earlier review advising against swirl designs. Scent came through beautifully after cure. I have no doubt this will be a new customer fave!

"The best so far...."
COMMENTS:  I have been looking for a true Kai perfume dupe which is a gardenia, lily of the valley white flower scent. Kai from another company smells like mothballs. I have tried 3 different Gardenia / Lily blends and most are way too perfumey. This one so far is the best. I will buy it again.

"Just would NOT misbehave! LOL"
COMMENTS:  Florals are notorious for acceleration, but I must say, I'm incredibly impressed with this FO! I pushed it to the limit & it stayed on it's absolute best behavior regardless! I used my fastest moving recipe, and then amped it up by adding 1TBS kaolin clay PPO, 7% castor oil, coconut milk in place of distilled water, and a hefty liquid discount to boot! I was FULLY expecting things to move fast, so I decided to keep the design itself simple & used only one mica colorant. I also kept temps low, with lye solution at about 85°F and oils at 95°F. I hand-stirred this FO in at light trace, bracing myself for the inevitable, but it never happened!!! The soap batter remained beautifully fluid, and I had no problems AT ALL! I'm so impressed with how well-behaved this FO is, next time I think I'll push it a little more & go for a 2 color swirl. As for scent, it's definitely gardenia, so if you're a gardenia lover, such as myself, this FO is sure to please. I like that it wasn't overpowering to the point of being headache-inducing, but I feel it could have been touch stronger, so will probably increase the usuage rate next time. All in all though, I was very pleased with this FO and am hoping the beautiful scent sticks through cure!

"Lovely Smelling"
COMMENTS:  I am actually buying a second big bottle of a particular fragrance oil with this company. First, this fragrance smells heavenly, and my customers really like it. I sell a lot of bath bombs with it especially, and plan to add it to my lotion lines. Secondly, I had not a bit of trouble with it. Florals are notorious for tracing quick, so I am always prepared, but this didn't give me an ounce of trouble. Third, this fragrance stayed true and didn't morph on me. And last, it wasn't a toxic, yellow color. Several of the oils I have bought were such a strong yellow that it made my soap look ghastly and chemically in spite of efforts to work with it. I would absolutely recommend this fragrance and give it a very strong 5 stars!

"FO in Cold Process soap"
COMMENTS:  This is a wonderful FO but it did accelerate slightly. I only colored my CP batter with titanium dioxide and I have heard that TD accelerates soap slightly (not sure if it is actually true). But other than that the FO did not cause ricing or discoloration in my soap. Also this is a nice floral smell but I only smelled the Lilly OOB, now when I am smelling my soap I can only smell the gardenia.

"Wonderful gardenia mix!"
COMMENTS:  I absolutely love gardenia but wanted to try it with something else. I'm so happy I picked this one! I use it several ways - in lotions, shower gel, as a perfume mixed with oil in a rollerball, and in a foam soap dispenser. Softer than straight gardenia (if you don't like how sharp gardenia is you should enjoy the addition) and very, very feminine without smelling like a teen girl. In my foam dispenser I get almost a cucumber scent from it, but in no other formulation.

"soft floral scent "
COMMENTS:  As soon as I opened the box I hunted for this since the previous reviews were so good. I loved it immediately it has a soft floral smell that really reminded me of a flower but I cant grow anything so I turned to my mom for confirmation. She loved it ans said yes this smells just like the flower. So I was extra excited... to top it off my 23 year old daughter loved it too and she never agrees with me so its a Hit!

"Much better than regular gardenia "
COMMENTS:  I find the regular Gardenia to be a little too "floraly" and sweet, but this Gardenia Lily is a little softer and probably better usable as a unisex fragrance. I think this will be the FO I use for anything I use for Gardenia - not others.

"Gorgeous! "
COMMENTS:  I am so surprised by this scent. Ordered for my mother who adores florals, especially gardenia. I'm not a big floral girl, so I wasn't the happiest when a tiny bit of this FO leaked and got on my hands...about a second later the scent hit my nose and I was in love! Definitely a surprise...perhaps it's the 'soft' aspect of gardenia that makes it nicer (for me, at least) than other florals? Whatever it is, I know this will be a well-received gift and it's a truly gorgeous scent. For me, the lily is a nice backdrop...and smells more like Lily of the Valley than true lilies.

"Mild but in a good way"
COMMENTS:  This FO is very nice and mellow. I used about .75 oz per pound and it gave a nice scent, not too strong which fits gardenia very well. I used it with my goats milk recipe and it helps emphasize the "creamy" associated with goats milk. I do wish that it was strictly just Gardenia and not mixed with lily but you can definitely smell the gardenia in there. Very natural smelling FO.

"Very Surprised!"
COMMENTS:  I do not like gardenia! I had to state that first because I was shocked that this was one of the scents that I would be making soap with and thought, well I just barrel through my surprise this scent is not at all what I was expecting. I actually LIKE IT! it is not overpowering and has a light floral scent. It is really quite a pleasant surprise. This didn't do anything unexpected in my soap except make it smell divine! :-) I also made some bath salts with this that really smell divine. I decided I'd love to soak in a tub with this scent hanging in the air..really a nice scent.

"Surprisingly pleasant"
COMMENTS:  Behaves very well in CP soap. No acceleration experienced. No discoloration, nor ricing. The scent holds strong at 1%. I was expecting that I wouldn't like the gardenia, as most are overpowering. However, I was pleasantly surprised that this scent is not overly strong. Its a little softer and subdued, but definitely not weak. You may be surprised by this scent too. In my opinion, this is a scent that, if you don't don't add too much of it, you will have a customer favorite. Also used in lotion bars. It behaved excellently without any discoloration. Scent works fine in lotion bar, with very strong and enduring scent at .8%.

"Pleasantly Surprised"
COMMENTS:  When I received this fragrance I was disappointed in that it was a very subdued scent in its concentrated state, so I was sure it would be less than appropriate. I had been so used to overbearing gardenia fragrances and had hoped that this would be a toned down version, which I felt was too toned down. But after using it in lotions, salts, and soap bars, I found the scent to be an exceptional floral and it is now one of my favorites with a wearable long-lasting scent. Very pleased with Gardenia Lily! ;o)
