    Do you find that your scents get stronger, weaker or stay the same as they cure? I have my first scented bars curing now and the scent is pretty weak so I was curious.

    It depends on the fragrance. Some get stronger, some stay the same, and some fade to nothingness.

    Yep, what Michelle said, and it's why when you buy scent you use a reputable person and hopefully know someone who has soaped it. Vicki

    Cituses are famous for fading to nothing, florals usuallly stay strong, but they are hard to work with.. Spices are nice, they usually stay and are easy to work with..
    And it also depends on where you get them from, many are cut with carrier oils and you are not getting your moneys worth, what you paid for it.. Sticking with reputable suppliers is a must, once you find one they are like gold, keep em, no matter how good the others sound on the internet. Unless you got another soaper that vouches for their oils..
