I'm looking at some single note fruit scent...

Organic Watermelon
Organic Banana
Organic Peach
Organic Grape
Organic Mango

I said organic... cause synthetic smells fake to me, just like Orange Chill from Stirling vs Sapone di Paolo Arancione

I would love neroli, which is orange blossom. It's a seriously expensive essential oil, though. "Essential oils" are the natural ones. "Fragrance oils" are the synthetic. Sign me up for the natural every time.

Replying to my own post here. I think sandalwood is endangered, which is why the real thing has become so expensive and why people are reluctant to use it -- on grounds of conservation and price both.

Indeed, Indian (Mysore) sandalwood oil is rare, and expensive.
There are many species of sandalwood native to Australia, of which only a few are considered commercially important (e.g.: Santalum Austrocaledonium and S. Spicatum).
However, in Australia, harvesting of sandalwood from rootstock of Santalum album (Mysore species), is a recent development.

Some of the scents that people mention here don't exist as natural scents:  fruits other than citrus, for example, or Play-Doh, or cotton blossom or rhubarb.

I'd like to see a pure cucumber scent.  I like Thayer's cucumber, but all the soaps that say cucumber are always mixed with another scent and don't smell natural.

Michelle, are you saying that there is no such thing as, for example, apple essential oil or cotton blossom essential oil?  Surely they exist as single-note fragrance oils, though, right?

As fragrance oils, of course.  I've got a straight apple fragrance, for example, just haven't gotten around to soaping it yet.  I'm not sure what a cotton blossom smells like, but someone's idea of what it smells like is out there.  A light floral with powdery notes, I'm guessing, with maybe a little citrus mixed in.  But it would be called a single note fragrance even if it has many components, as long as it's supposed to smell like a single thing.

Just generally, I would like more single-note florals. There are so many options but so few actually used.
One of the most fantastic scents I've smelled anywhere is this hand soap by Campostrini:

Not sure exactly what it is but its floral (with maybe a hint of honey).

Looks impressive; I’ve yet to be disappointed by an Italian toilet soap (Valobra Lattuga, I Coloniali, SMN, etc.).
(Of course, it's multi-note b/c of the six aromatics, at the end.)

Basil would be nice.  So would eucalyptus.  But, I am allergic to most fragrances.

Agree with all of the above. There are plenty of sandalwood interpretations, some better than others, but a quality soap scented just with quality Mysore sandalwood oil would be amazing. Ditto for vetiver oil.

Queen Charlotte soaps used real Mysore sandalwood in their "Mysore Sandalwood" cream/croap.  I called them years ago to verify. It was the first soap I purchased that was $25. 

When you first open the lid to smell it...it's almost scentless. But then it kicks in. Like no other sandalwood I've ever used. Wonderful.

I'm sorry but - hasn't QCS closed?
