Cuban Tobacco Fragrance Oil 15382
Enter the smoking room - where the gentlemen in fine smoking jackets rest in leather high back chairs enjoy a Cuban cigar. With hints of fruity wine and spicy cinnamon, warm cloves, aromatic incense, and earthy patchouli - this spicy and somewhat sweet fragrance oil just begs to be made into a man's line of products. Base notes of tobacco leaf and oriental spice provide the perfect foundation on which the other notes meld perfectly to form the sheer heaven that is Cuban Tobacco. This would make an excellent bar of soap, shaving cream, aftershave, or candle.

CP Notes:
Soaped very well. No A, very slight discoloration to a yellow/amber. Scent stays strong and does not morph.

All About IFRA

We have IFRA on all fragrance oils and flavor oils on our website.

What do the maximum levels mean? Let's use Almond Paradise as an example. The IFRA guidelines on this state that there are no restrictions for soaps, shampoos, lotions, etc. So does that mean you can use 100% in your product? No. That would mean your product consists of straight fragrance oil.

The IFRA states the *max* that can be used, not the recommended amount. It is the responsibility of the maker to do their research to see what the recommended usage rate of fragrance oil for their particular recipe is.

For soap, as a general rule of thumb you will use up to 5% of fragrance oil in Cold Process (CP) soap and up to 3% in Melt and Pour (M&P) soap.

So, if you see a fragrance oil and the IFRA says 23% for soap, don't use 23%. IFRA is important when it comes to lower numbers. There are a few fragrance oils that have max usage rates that are less than the percentages shown above. In that case, you can only use the max shown for the oil.
