    I soaped the Blackberry Marmalade from Candle Science a few days ago. I used my regular recipe to test this scent (100% goat milk) and scented at a rate of .8 PPO. No acceleration, discolored to a dark tan and appears to be getting darker.

    So far, I am not a huge fan of this scent. It is rather plain and is lacking any depth of scent (if that makes sense). At this time I can only smell blackberry. Nothing like the Cranberry Marmalade scent that I love. So far, I am disappointed but I will give it some more time and post any updates to the board.

    Blackberry marmalade is candle safe only ...maybe that is the problem ? I agree there cranberry marmalade is great.

    I think the reason the Blackberry Marmalade is listed as candle safe only is because they haven't offically tested it in soap yet. They label all of their new scents as such until they are tested.

    Well shoot, I was soo hoping you were going to report a good report and "Vicki use this for your Summer Berry!" :) But perhaps it will be like the honey and it gets better in about a week? Vicki

    Sorry Vicki! I'll keep you posted but I don't think it's a scent that you'd use. Nothing like your Summer Berry. Perhaps Fruit Slices would be more to your liking? It's a wonderful fruity fragrance.
