Rating: I love "Sun & Sand". To me, it smells like salty driftwood at the seaside. In CP soap, it behaves well for a beachy scent — there's no ricing, and no discolouration. It's a fairly quick mover though, so bear that in mind with your design. If you're well prepared, you should be fine. I managed a four-colour side pour with it. ("Sun & Sand" is my replacement for the discontinued "Beach House", which I loved but was a demon to work with — ricing, seizing and generally behaving badly.) While "Sun & Sand" smells similar, it is much better behaved.

Rating: Odeur de plage géniale mais accéléré la trace difficile à travailler pour saf plus complexe. Ça sent vraiment la plage
Rating: It’s okay. Wasn’t for me though. I was looking for a beachy fragrance for my candles and this really didn’t fit the bill. It’s not terrible - just not what I was hoping for. Might be better for soaps
Rating: Just made CP soap with this lovely scent. It's a happy, beach scent that I just love. Can't wait to see and smell the end product but so far it's great. No ricing or acceleration, and no discolouration.

Rating: This FO was a disaster in my CP soap. It accelerates and rice very fast. It smells like suntan lotion, but I think some people will love it.

Rating: I am unsure of this scent, it smells like tanning lotion or sunblock. I don't really smell anything citrus but you can smell the powder for sure.
By:Tiffany, Brantford, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 24-Aug-2011
Rating: I really enjoy this scent. It does actually smell like sitting on the beach. I can't wait to see what everyone thinks about it!
By:Lyndsay, London, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 30-Mar-2015
Rating: I don't even know how to rate this FO :)) I, personally, hate how it smells. But! Every single person, who got my CP with this fragrance, just LOVED it! Especially men.

Rating: I have to say I am impressed with this scent. So impressed that I had to order another bottle 2 weeks later as I don't think I could have enough! Blends beautifully in my perfume oils. People keep stopping me to ask what perfume I am wearing. Fresh and clean and I add a pinch of vanilla to add a sweet base. This one is a must have!
By:Kim, Greely, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 24-May-2014
Rating: Used in cold process soap tonight and ended up with soap on a stick! Had to mold it when it started gelling because I couldn't even get it out of the bowl. Won't be re-purchasing. I'll find a better sea type scent.
Rating: This one goes fabulously with anything I put seaweed in, really adds to the beach-y feel. Made a M&P soap with seaweed which made a nice mossy green color, and this scent, whole family loved it! Great to have something to complement/cover seaweed smell, great stuff, but some don't like the smell, this makes it blend right in!

Rating: It's a sunny day at the beach in a bottle! You can smell the suntan lotion and floral/musk? Either way it's REALLY nice!
By:Christine, Limoges, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 04-Apr-2012
Rating: Another beach type scent, I mixed it with the Hawaiian Lei (two-layered soap) and they compliment each other. (I find) I love my soap that I keep for myself! :)

Rating: I like the fresh top notes that are like sunshine on the beach to me... will get this one again. Very nice and fresh.
By:Naomi, Chatham, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 22-Aug-2011
Rating: I'm ridiculously addicted to this FO! It's strong but not to strong and the scent holds very well in perfumes.
By:Michelle, Cookstown, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 01-Dec-2011
Rating: Its a lovely scent but i dont get the "beach" from it . I can smell a hint of something like ive smelled before in suntan lotion but not beach.
By:Phyllis, Halifax County, Nova Scotia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 31-Jul-2011
Rating: Did not liked it too much in soap (however, no discoloring or trace acceleration), but in candles smells wonderful!!! Warm smell...
Rating: After testing it in CP soap, il still smells like in the bottle. Bun to me it's not a very "beachy" sent. But it does smell like the outdoors. Unisex sent. I think you could blend it with a fruity scent to add to it, though I haven't tried it yet.
By:Edith, Mirabel, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 22-Sep-2007
Rating: I just used this scent in a body cream batch and I can't stop smelling myself! So yummy and fresh!! I will be keeping this one in the permanent rotation!
By:Stephanie, Burlington, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 21-Nov-2006
Rating: This one will sneak up on you! When I used it in my body lotion formula last night, all I could smell was bitter alcohol and I was getting really nervous that I had wasted my money. However, when I revisited my batch this morning I had a nice surprise! It really does smell like a day at the beach, and everyone who has smelled my samples just loves it. Very happy with the results!
Rating: I use this scent to make soap, bath salts and bubble bath. It has been adopted by a spa that I supply as one of their top selling scents, please dont ever discontinue this FO. It reminds me of my happy times in Cuba

By:Kim, Quesnel, British Columbia
Date: Loyal Customer Since: 23-May-2009
Rating: Sorry but this is not a pleasant scent to me. I can't smell the beach here. It is a sickly, nauseating smell. It is the only scent from NDA that I truly dislike. I have tried many others and have always been very happy wit them. Maybe it's just me...
By:Sonya, Hubley, Nova Scotia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 24-Nov-2008
Rating: The scents I have purchased are so sweet smelling....I just love them! No need to shop anywhere else. No worries to you new customers. You will not be disapointed!
Rating: OH MY GOODNESS!!!! I ADORE this scent! I have several candles that smell like this, and I have always wanted to find the scent and now I did and I am SOOOO excited! I love it and have already put it into a lotion! Its fantastic that I can smell like a beach all year round! What a nostalgic scent!
By:Stephanie, Cochrane, Alberta Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Apr-2007
Rating: How anyone's managed to formulate and bottle the smell of the beach is beyond me. Bravo!
By:Crystal, Port Moody, British Columbia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Apr-2008
Rating: A nifty and fun clean smelling scent. Look forward to trying this one out. The quality stands out as soon as you smell it. You've done it again!
By:Susanne, Newmarket, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 15-Jul-2007
Rating: I let a friend of mine smell this without seeing the name and the first words were "Smells like the beach!"
I could see this going well in a sugar scrub or a scrubby bar of soap.
