Yeah this soap just didn’t make me happy this year. Bramble Berry changed their fragrance from last year and it just wasn’t the same. I was heart broken! But I went looking for some other applejacks and found one that was similar to BB’s. Similar in smell but sooooo much more yellow than BB’s. It killed my colors. These swirls are not what I wanted because the yellow of the fragrance really altered them.
So I tried a second batch. This time I did things different knowing how my colors would be affected. No color in the white. And I used apple fragrance in the pink and then the gray is applejack. It worked better, but the design isn’t really doing it for me.
Extremely frustrated at this point I said that’s it. No more applejack. Last year I was introduced to Apple, Peach, Cinnamon (which is pretty similar to applejack, but I actually like better). And it behaves better when it comes to color! And finally I got a batch I really like!
