Rating: This is so strong, and just almond, almond, almond! It smells like real almond extract... even down to the slightly alcoholic quality. I haven't used it yet, but I would hope it would mellow a little in a product otherwise it may need to be blended.
By:Amaris, Nepean, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 23-Jun-2011
Rating: Great scent and works well in cp soaps and holds scent, but when I made bath bombs with this scent it held for about 2 weeks and then the scent completely dropped. I don't recommend for bath bombs.
Rating: If you want the sweet sweet smell of marzipan, this is the scent for you. If you are looking for a subtle or more bitter/natural almond smell, I'm afraid it might not be right for you. I found it far too sweet - I was looking for a milky/powdery soft almond scent, not a cake-like scent.

Rating: I like this fragrance because it is a very strong and pure scent. It seems more like an essential oil scent than a fragrance oil. It doesn't have a lot of depth to it but I like that. It is good for a masculine scent.
By:Christine, Barrie, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 12-Jun-2015
Rating: I added about 0.5oz ppo, which is about half of what I normally use for my cold process soap. After curing for 6 weeks or so, there is no scent left in my Oatmeal Almond Soap. :( It is that wonderful cherry smell, I just wish it would stay after curing!
By:Robin, Grimsby, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 03-Feb-2015
Rating: Je n'étais vraiment pas certaine de l'aimer avant de faire du cp avec hier! Je l'ai mélangée avec de l'huile essentielle d'orange et c'est juste parfait. Je crois que c'est devenu mon #1. Dans le M&P je suis moins fan par contre.

Rating: Love this FO. Very strong scent. Used in CP soap and behaved well. Will buy again
By:Tracy, Fergus, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 03-Jan-2016
Rating: Out of the Bottle I thought it smelled like a solvent, it was very strong. After my CP soap cured it was a lovely sweet cherry baked goods kind of a scent. I would strongly recommend using half the amount you would normally use. A little goes a very long way. For me, it did not speed up trace, it didn't discolor. My soap is now about 8 weeks old and the scent is perfect :)

By:Kim, Greely, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 24-Jun-2014
Rating: Strong scent. Loving it in solid lotions.
By:Julie, South Porcupine, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 20-Mar-2015
Rating: VERY strong scent you dont need a whole lot of this one. Smells wonderful and does not accelerate trace in cp soap. For me it did discolor slightly
By:Victoria, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 13-May-2013
Rating: This was one of my first fragrances I bought when I started making and selling soap. It's a winner. I love that you don't need tons of oil to make a nice scent, it's strong and wonderful. I mix mine with vanilla and do a two swirl colour with almond and vanilla (cream and brown) and call it Almond Biscotti and it's very popular! Works wonderfully in CP soap.
By:Rose, Haileybury, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 15-Mar-2014
Rating: So happy with this fragrance oil, like toasted almonds with a hint of cherry. Glad I got a large bottle, I am going to try this in all my products.

By:Vita, St. Catharine, Ontario
Date: Loyal Customer Since: 10-Dec-2014
Rating: This is a wonderful almond scent with cherry undertones, but is very strong. I would use 1/2 the normal amount.
Rating: Smells so good, like marzipan. Behaves really well in CP, lots of play time with this one. Strong scent, a little goes a long way.
By:Dianne, Portage La Prairie, Manitoba Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 11-Nov-2013
Rating: Absolutely in love with this scent! Holds up well in CP. A must have!
By:Charlene, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 14-Feb-2012
Rating: I loved this scent, in M&P soaps, sugar scrubs, bath salts... you name it! A little goes a very long way (more so than some other fragrances I've tried). It reminds me of Almond Orgeat.
By:A., Dawson Creek, British Columbia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 20-Jul-2013
Rating: Wasnt sure what to expect.. but just love this scent.. worked well in CP didn't have an issue. just unmolded a couple days ago.. cant wait to cut it and see the result. I am sure that my customers will like this one.
By:Celena, Lasalle, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 28-Nov-2012
Rating: absolutely almond scent and love it. but it does not behave well for me in CP, makes my soap trace really fast and runs me off my feet to get batter into my molds, even try adding at trace and still have the same issue.
By:Janit, Souris, Manitoba Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 04-May-2013
Rating: Really wonderful! Smells like marzipan and works great in cp soap!
By:Melissa, Pugwash, Nova Scotia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 20-Apr-2007
Rating: The best Almond scent I have ever smelt! Started buying it over 5yrs ago and still only buy it from NDA :)!!!!
By:Heather, Abbotsford, British Columbia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 05-Mar-2008
Rating: Exactement la même odeur que le sirop d'orgeat que je buvais étant plus jeune! inroyable! utilisée en procédé ITMHP (au four), n'a pas accéléré la trace et l'odeur est bien présente (utilisée à 3% du poids de mes huiles), merci de faire des fragrance sans Phtalate, on fait des produits maisons avec des fragrances qui ne polluent pas notre peau! c'est un gros plus chez NDA, merci!
Rating: Very nice smell. I bought it because it was so inexpensive and I wanted to see what it smelled like. I will definitely repurchase this as it is an excellent price and smelled way better than I thought it would. Very much like almonds but not nauseating like almond scent usually is for me.
By:Kathleen, Edmonton, Alberta Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 08-Oct-2012
Rating: Hands down my favorite scent from NDA!! smells just like my mum's christmas cookies. NDA, never stop carrying this! I wish I could give it more than 5 stars
By:Stephanie, London, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 03-Oct-2008
Rating: Amazing in CP soap.. scent lasts way after the 4 week curing time and doen't turn your soap brown. Highly recommended.
Rating: It's not a bad scent but it's too biter for me...

Rating: This is a very good almond scent, not too bitter, not too fake.
By:Michele, Montreal, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 02-Jun-2011
Rating: This was my first order ....Wow, strong strong scent. (Love the bottles)I made tarts with this oil, and almost evacuated us out of the kitchen because it smelled so strong. I will be using half and maybe less of what i usually have to. But it smells amazing, will be ordering more of this for sure. Will test on candles, to see if it burns nice, will update.
Rating: I have to concur with the others here who say this fragrance is like marzipan, it really is yummy!
It was part of my first order and I'm glad I chose it.
Fast service too!

Rating: Despite it's name, not "bitter" at all! To me, it smells just like marzipan. Very nice in a body wash.
By:Karen, Portugal Cove, Newfoundland Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 26-May-2006
Rating: This scent is stronger than the others I bought; so a little goes a long way! Really smells like marzipan.

By:Sonya, Hubley, Nova Scotia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 24-Nov-2008
Rating: Very good fragrant oil. Really smells like almond essential oil, but is easier to keep in storage. I had very good results into soaps.
By:Louise, Montreal, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 25-Feb-2006
Rating: My 8 year old son loves this scent in the CP soap I made. This fragrance oil changed the colour of the soap to a brownish/orange colour. It's quite a strong scent and I probably added too much to my 2 lb batch.
Rating: Very good smell ! Smells exactly like "pâte d'amande" pastry. I loove it
By:Edith, Mirabel, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 22-Sep-2007
Rating: Great scent , very strong , wonderful for B&B great value , I have gotten other scents thhat take half a bottle before you get a good scent, but with NDA I have yet to have any problems with just drops of scent and or the essential oils, top quality products!

Rating: Very true and pleasing with no chemical tone that I could detect. Strong scent but also blends well with others as it is smooth. Didn't change or fade in soap.
