First sniff impressions (taken from the video) Bramble Berry S.O.A.P. Panel fragrances

First impressions of the Bramble Berry mystery fragrances:

manly, earthy, resinous (gritty)

apple, light perfumey red apple

floral, powdery

fruit candy, almost an apple or pear

gross, revolting, no idea what it's supposed to be

wine, maybe sangria, fruity and wine

water scent, ocean, cologne/perfume but unisex, fresh, clean

masculine, designer cologne, almost like paco rabanne but not

I will post "testing impressions" once I've completed my soap testing for these fragrances. I will also be making a few wax melts with the remaining fragrance oils so that I can melt them and sniff them in that medium.

Can I just say I'm so stoked to be a member of the Bramble Berry S.O.A.P. panel and this feels like a super adventure to me. I have discovered that I'm really bad at picking out fragrance notes and I would be absolute rubbish as a perfumist. =)

Thank you all for coming along on this journey with me, I hope you all will consider entering the giveaway I'll be hosting at the end of this testing. I'll be giving away complete sets of these soaps in all 8 fragrances so you can see exactly what I was talking about. I could use some feedback on the scents with a "fresh nose".


Bramble Berry S.O.A.P Panel soaps in scents 1-4

So... after my initial thoughts on the Bramble Berry mystery fragrances, I have soaped with fragrances 1-4. I haven't read back to see what my first thoughts were, so it will be interesting to me if they're the same now.

Here are the soaps:

I still really like all four of these fragrances. My favorites are #1 and #4. I love the apple, and the floral is quite nice for a floral (not big on florals.. as you may well know by now). They were all well behaved, very minor acceleration in two of them, not hard to work with at all. I will be uploading a video to my YouTube of the soaping process with these four soaps. Stay tuned for the next four (not looking forward to #5)!!
