Attention S.O.A.P. team: Please email SOAP(at)brambleberry(dot)com with your contact and shipping information! We’ll be packaging up your fragrances and getting them out the door by the end of the week. Oh the suspense of not knowing what fragrances you’ll receive!  Could one be Bacon? Or Wet Dog? You’ll soon find out!


We had nearly 50 people enter the contest this time! Wow. Thank you ALL of your interest in the S.O.A.P. Team and for the wonderful BB fragrance oil shout outs! You don’t know how fun it is for me to read about peoples’ favorite fragrances (I know, I’m kind of a soap nerd in that way). S.O.A.P. started out as a market research project for us but we soon realized how much fun everyone was having and decided to make it a regular part of our fragrance picking. It was really hard for us to pick the team this year (as it always is) but the ha reality is that we only have eight spots available.


The good news is that we’ll be doing many more testing panels in the future so if you haven’t been picked yet, keep trying! We want to give everyone a chance to experiment and play!


Check out our “go to” recipe that we use to test our new fragrances in cold process: Testing 1, 2, 3!

    Thank you so much for letting me be part of the S.O.A.P. panel! I am very honored, and can hardly wait to get started.

    Did you say bacon? I could get really pumped about that. Wet dog? Eh, not so much.

    Thanks again, and congratulations to the rest of the panel. Have fun!

    Congratulations you guys. I could not apply because I have not started soaping yet. Hopefully, I will make the 2013 soap team.

  9. I order 99% of my fragrances from brambleberry. I do make a novelty soap using bacon fragrance, and its the one scent that I have to order elsewhere! I would love if you guys carried a bacon fragrance oil!
