Sometimes I think the use of Fragrance oils is underrated, I completely understand some people not liking them because they have sensitivities but for those that don't does it really do much harm! (Rhetorical question)

As fragrance oils go I have found one to be particularly amazing in soaps but a scent rarely spoke about, as the title suggests I am talking about Raspberry.

I have three soaps with this component in and I think they are truely great scents,

Soap Commander Gusto
Deluxe Shave Co. Rockers
Dapper Dragon Custom Bakewell (Raspberry & Almond)

Simply they are my thoughts, and I think we should see more Raspberry  Wink

So what fragrance oils do you like and think are underrated or under used!

I am glad to hear it Smile 

I have been considering pulling the trigger on a bottle of Tom Ford Tuscan Leather as this is meant to have Raspberry notes in it but it's a lot of money so I need to do some research.

Peach.  For sure.  

Also pear.  Or Asian pear.  I think this would be a nice scent in a scent blend.

Peach is one I have seen come up a bit recently. Pear would also be nice but what's the difference between Pear and Asain Pear.

Thankfully Claus we don't have to worry about the small stones in soap Smile

There appears to be a theme of great smelling fruits that people would like to see.

I can imagine both Blackberry and Apricot would be nice, I would think Blackberry might go well in a blend of some kind.

I understand why people say/do this but like you said Citrus is a food? 

Straight up fruit may be a turn off for some but do you not think some of the fruits mentioned are great supporting scents? For example look how well Plum works in Cold River Vetiver Moderne!

I tried a blackberry scented soap many years ago made by an artisan in West Virginia who is now out of business.  It smelled great off the puck and in the lather, but for some reason I didn't enjoy the scent while actually shaving with it.  I think if it were used in a scent it would have to be in a multi-note scent.  Just my opinion. 

Pear and asian pear, I suppose, would smell pretty similar, although I think of the asian pear as a clean, crisper scent.  But maybe that's because the texture is so much different rather than the smell.

I agree with you on the blackberry I think it work very well in a blend.

Interesting about the pear, I would say pear is quite a light scent I think it would go well in a summer scent.

Sorry, wish I could say I agree. (Not trying to be argumentative, just answering your question Smile )
Haven't tried that one, but the inclusion of the Plum note in PdP No. 63 is at least 90% of the reason I don't like the scent. I was REALLY looking forward to that one (I bought and sold 4 soaps/tins before anyone even heard of it, check the BST archives). But i was immediately REALLY disappointed.
Citrus types only for me (can't think of another). I'll be on my way now Smile

I know, it's good discussionSmile what's makes us all different drives the selection that we have which is good.

Citrus is still a massive favourite of mine, enjoy and thanks for your thoughts Smile
