Not for Cold-Processed Soap!
First, this fragrance is wonderful! I love the fresh, crisp scent. However...I purchased this to use in a cold-processed soap. I made two separate batches, just to make sure. Both times, the addition of the fragrance oil at trace caused my soap to seize. It happened so fast, I used my hand to scoop it out of the pan into the mold. Unfortunately, the oils separated, which made it lye-heavy. I'm so disappointed, because the scent is just beautiful. I will find other items to use the scent for, but it won't be cold-processed soap. :(
I recently bought a couple of oils from here to make lotions and deodorants and I have to say the blackberry one is easily my favorite. It smells exactly like a blackberry, I can't get enough of it. I will definitely buy more once I run out of the one I have, the price is great too.
Not Quite Right
While this does have a wonderful fruity scent, it does not smell like fresh blackberries.
It struck me more as a generic mixed berry type of scent, by smell alone, it's impossible to tell what kind of berry it's supposed to be.
None of the depth of blackberry, and just a hint of that light floral scent fresh picked blackberries have (the one that fade after a few minutes, you know what I'm talking about if you've ever had the chance to put your nose in a bowl of blackberries you just got done picking).
Overall, very nice scent. Definitely 'berry' and bright fruity notes, but not discernibly blackberry.
I bought this oil for perfumes and wax melts. I have only tested a sample of it for scent so far. It's not sugary sweet like fake blackberry fragrance. It has a nice, rich, natural berry scent to it.
