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 for selecting me! I was so giddy when I was at my daytime job everyone wondered what made me so happy 😀 This truly made my day and can’t wait to start soaping…Bacon huh? pretty sure I can get someone who would like the scent 😀
Ha – I know what you mean about getting giddy and having a private party. I do that too! =)

Wow! Thank you so much for picking me! I am soooo looking forward to being on the S.O.A.P. Team and getting to test out the fragrances! Congrats to everyone who made it! 🙂
If the batch does include bacon, my bacon obsessed fiance will definitely be weighing in on that one. lol
So glad to have you on the team. We sent out the packages this week and you’ll get them next week – and then, your fiance can weigh in on the fragrances as well =)
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!
Wow – who would have thought?! I’ll send an email to our fave perfumer and get that project resampled …
YAY!!! So excited!!!! 🙂
Congratulations you guys. I could not apply because I have not started soaping yet. Hopefully, I will make the 2013 soap team.
A big congratulations to the winners. Can’t wait to see what you all come up with!
I’ve got a customer that would love some Wet Dog soap, I did a big order of Lutefisk soap for him for the holidays.
Ha, good sense of humor! =)
Nope, I’m serious.
Congrats to those who were selected! I bet you’ll have loads of fun. I’ll keep trying!
Andi Luther-Philippe says
Woohoo! I’m so excited!
I’m super disappointed about not making it onto the panel, but I’m excited for everyone who did. Contests everybody and have fun! Can’t wait to find out what fragrances you get to test! Maaybe I’ll get to test some next time 😀
Hehe that’s supposed to be “congrats” not “contests”. Darn auto correct.
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!
We have tried a Bacon fragrance and we were SO close to carrying it but went the other way because we didn’t think it wouldn’t be the best seller =)
In my limited research, bacon flavor/scent is split right down the middle. People either love it or hate it. It’s a hard scent to mimic. I love anything bacon and ordered some bacon lip balm(yes they make it) from J&D’s Bacon Salt website http://baconsalt.3dcartstores.com/JDs-Bacon-Lip-Balm-the-original-bacon-lip-balm_p_40.html.
I love their bacon salt products, so I thought I would love the lip balm, too. I almost threw up when I smelled the lip balm!
I think in theory, the idea of bacon fragrance/flavor is great! Who doesn’t love the smell of bacon? In practice, though, it’s still the smell of meat in a body product. =)
