Must Try Fragrances, Molds and More!

It was Christmas morning here at Bramble Berry. We just got in three new fragrances that are must haves. I’m excited to introduce Zanzibar Spice, Mint Chocolate Chip and Monkey Love (a.k.a. ‘Banana’). We also just received our 18 Bar Baltic Birch Molds (a.k.a. ‘The Greatest Mold in the World’). They’re on the site and ready to order. And last but not least, our new soap stamps are here. Phew. It’s been a great (busy busy busy) day at Bramble Berry!

Zanzibar Spice: This fragrance is a hint on the masculine side but women will love using it too. You’re nose will first pick up on the Mandarin Leaf, Agave Nectar and African Lotis; then you’ll notice they’re perfectly paired with spices like cardamom, Nutmeg and Black Peppercorn. The dry base notes of Safari Sandalwood, Patchouli and Tonka Bean hold it all together for the perfect combination of “sugar and spice and everything nice”. This fragrance will discolor to a beige/brown. This fragrance has not yet been tested in cold process. We’ll keep you updated with the results.



Mint Chocolate Chip: Dish yourself up a bowl of Chocolate Chip Mint Ice cream and relax. Enjoy the scent of Pure Cane Sugar, Whipped Cream, Chocolate Truffle, Crème de Menthe, Peppermint Candy and Vanilla Brulee. It’s all rounded out with Tonka Bean, Musk and a hint of Butterscotch. Close your eyes and enjoy the sweet chocolate and energizing mint! This fragrance will discolor to a beige/ brown and has not yet been tested in cold process. We’ll keep you updated with our results.

Monkey Love: You’ll go “bananas” over our new banana fragrance oil. It smells just like banana candy (think banana Runts). This is by far the best banana fragrance that we’ve come across out of the bottle. You won’t be able to resist Ripe Banana notes combined with Brown Sugar, Churned Butter, Sugar Cane and Whipped Cream. Chopped Walnuts, ground Cinnamon and Clove Bud add the perfect addition to the monkey business. This fragrance will discolor to a beige/brown and has not yet been tested in Cold Process. We’ll keep you updated with the results.



18 Bar Baltic Birch Molds: Bramble Berry adoringly calls this “The Best Soap Mold in the World!” This 18 bar mold is made out of top grade Russian Birch Plywood and Mahogany and holds approximately 6 lbs of soap. Each mold is custom made and locally hand crafted here in Bellingham, Washington. All of the joints are glued and screwed together for excellent durability and the finish is a sanding sealer with several coats of lacquer on top giving it that beautiful glossed look.

Celebration Stamp Set: Celebrate every holiday of the year with our clear stamp set. These rubber backed stamps are a great way to make reusable seasonal soap designs out of plain soap molds- allowing you to change your designs with out purchasing new molds. Learn how to stamp your melt and pour soap with Soap Queen TV: Holiday Soap Stamp Video OR see the Soap Queen Blog tutorial: Rubber Stamping for Martha.

    Nice mold! Can you make a half-size one for us, pretty please? :) (i.e. smaller overall size, not smaller soaps)

  2. Anne-Marie says:

    I’m on it! I’ll work on a quote and prototype next week. Thanks for asking. =)

  3. Brigette says:

    I see someone has asked for a smaller mold. That would be awesome if it could happen. I am also loving the sound of Mint Chocolate Chip. I bet it is awesome.

  4. Amy says:

    Wow! You guys were busy today! The Zanzibar Spice sounds wonderful- do you think vanilla stabilizer will minimize the discoloration in MP?

  5. nina says:

    Awesome! It would be great to have one for 2 lb soap recipes. I’ve just been drooling over the soaps you’ve made with your prototype mold!

  6. Lisa says:

    I have one of your older molds that looks just like this one. It has a flexible, removable bottom.Will the hard bottom that is being sold for this mold fit in the older version?

  7. Michelle says:

    I have been waiting for this mold!!! Thank You!

  8. Anne-Marie says:

    Flexible, removable bottom? Could that perhaps be the Upland Silicone molds that they were making with the dividers and the silicone bottom lining? These bottom pieces are hard and they may fit the old molds? I’ll see if I have an old one around here to double check on with! =)

    The mold I have is birchwood also and I bought it about a year ago from BB. They are hard plastic on the sides with hard plastic removeable dividers but a soft, foamy type removeable bottom(which I don’t like at all!) That is why I was asking about these bottoms. Thank you.

  11. Anne-Marie says:

    Ah yes! Thanks for jogging my memory. That one is not the same size as our current ones. It is a mold that we were testing out as a trial run. Unfortunately, the vendor could not keep up with our quality and quantity needs. If you want to try the new one, I would be happy to give you a 50%discount so you can transition into the hard bottom?

  12. Lisa says:

    I would love to. How do I go about doing that? Thank you for your kindness!

    The mold looks great!
