I had 2 new BB scents - Berrywine and Spiced Mahogany - that I wanted to try out for my fall soaps.
First, the Berrywine. I didn't love this scent out of the bottle - it smelled too similar to red wine that has gone stale. I used the (undiluted) formulation for Wineberry Mist in my packet (1 part red, 1/2 part emerald), squeezed the color drops directly into the soap, and mixed the color in the soap with the tiny blender. I wanted to try a color gradation, and I'm really like how the layers turned out.
Next, I tried Spiced Mahogany. I was super excited about this, because I've always wanted to smell like Ron Burgundy's apartment (Anchorman reference - I love that movie...). The fragrance has discolored because of the vanilla. I made one layer using the suggested formula for Oyster (1 part canary, 1 part peach, 1 part royal purple). Same spotty problem as the berrywine soap above, but I am really loving this scent! It's a nice masculine scent, but I don't think it's off-putting.
I love how this turned out! The embeds were nice and sharp, and the layers did bleed, which had just the effect I was looking for! And the scent is really heavenly (see what I did there? haha!).
Hope everyone is enjoying their day!
