Has this happened to anyone else?

    I love Black Raspberry Vanilla (Lillians) soap! I thought I would try to scent some unrefined shea with it. I whipped up a couple of batches last night both scented and unscented, the smell seemed a little off but it did not have a chance to meld together. Well I slathered some on today after my shower, and PU!!! I smelled like I had rolled in a vat of movie theater popcorn butter. I thought it would get better after a little time, so I let the scent develop. I finally had to go take another shower, I could not stand myself.

    Has anyone else had a FO change so dramatically in other formulas?

    I have never had a FO morph in unscented shea butter, but I guess there is always a first time.. With shea, because it is a nut and the unrefined smells smokey.. I try to use fragrances or EO that compliment this.. Never have tried fruity scents in it.. I do make a body butter in which I use all unrefined shea's cocoa butters etc.. and I have added all scents to this. Never morphs...
    Sorry I can't be of more help, maybe someone else can

    Yeah, a berry scent is something I wouldn't think would go well with raw shea! I love warm vanilla sugar or almond biscotti or nag champa or dragons blood...think earthy bottom note scents. Vicki
