I tried this based on reviews I read. I needed something to go in my almond body butter. I use vanilla absolute but wanted something less expensive to mix in and this really works well, so thank you folks
both soft and mysterious
While I agree with the previous reviewers that this is a wonderful (and inexpensive) way to integrate a sort of vanilla scent into your products, I have to say that for me what makes this stand out is its soft complexity of notes. It is the perfect addition for rounding out "louder" scents, and its calming properties bring mysterious depth to blended fragrances.
TOP NOTCH FIXATIVE
I am so excited to use this as a fixative because I love the vanilla-y scent it has! Usually fixatives are ugly scents but not this one! Very happy!
Blends well with Patchouli
I wanted an oil that would round our Patchouli. After much experimentation, I've blended an intoxicating, relaxing blend. Its an inexpensive way to get a scent close to vanilla.
My new favorite!!
Love, love, love this oil. The fragrance was exactly what I was expecting...soft, powdery, vanilla like. It also is very long lasting. I applied a test drop on my wrist diluted in FCO and my wrist was still fragrant the next morning.
Vanilla scent, but not brown soap
Peru Balsam is a wonderful way to scent your CP soap without the soap turning a dark brown color which is so common with most FOs. Blends well with many other EOs. A staple EO especially durning the fall/winter season.
Smells Great, Lasts Forever!
I made some oatmeal and honey soaps and wanted to find a nice complimentary essential oil that I could add to scent my soaps. I decided to try Peru Balsam, based on the reviews and descriptions. I made my soaps about 6 months ago, and you can still smell the sweet Peru Balsam scent on them. Plus it's antibacterial too! This scent is great if you're looking for a vanilla like smell.
Warm and sweet
I had never smelled Peru Balsam before, and as others mentioned, the deep vanilla smell is unexpected. I was surprised by how sweet this oil is and I honestly wasn't sure I even liked it. It definitely grew on me and I used it with Cedarwood, Fir and Orange in a CP soap. It really helps round out the other scents and I think I'll try it with Patchouli or Amyris.
A warm, balsamic, woody vanilla fragrance that is magic in soaps and aromatic compounds. It blends well with citrus, herb and floral concoctions alike. CG's quality and price beats all others.
Balsam Essential Oil
This oil is the vanilla that I have been looking for! I wanted to add a vanilla scent to my soaps, but did not want to use vanilla extract - Peru Balsam essential oil smells so very vanilla! Clean and sweet at the same time!
After pricing many online essential oil stores, found that Camden Grey had the best deal. When I recieved my oil was very pleased with the quality of the oil. I will be back for more!
Peru Balsam - A Wonderful Fixer!
Peru Balsam is a wonderful fixative, meaning it will help hold the scent of other oils in the blend. With it's intoxicatingly wonderful vanilla scent, it compliments and is pleasing to the olfactory system. Peru Balsam is a must for any serious oil designer! Use it with scents for soaps, bath oils, powders, aromatherapy, anything! It imparts a wonderful base scent and it has a strong scent, so a little goes a long way!
"has a vanilla-type scent"
I ordered this oil because I read in the description that is has a "has a vanilla-type scent" and I was intrigued. In my opinion the description is a massive understatement! I was shocked how much this one smells like vanilla, and I was very excited to start using it in my aroma recipes. I highly recommend this one to anyone who likes the scent of vanilla.
