A soft sweet musky fragrance, just like those little pink sweeties.
Suitable for use in soaps, creams, lotions, shower gels, bath bombs, shampoo, scrubs, perfumes (see IFRA), and also in oil burners. Not suitable in candles or aroma beads or incense due to poor absorption or poor scent throw, although you may find that the addition of Stearic Acid (Stearin) will help greatly in some cases.
Behaves very well in CPHP, CP & OHP. No acceleration. Holds scent very well. Makes soap very white - Annya 2008

By Yvette www.amarasoaps.com As original batch seized due to acceleration of Palma Violet FO, I increased the water of my recipe to 35% for my next batch. TIPS TO HELP AVOID ACCELERATION WHEN USING FLORAL FRAGRANCES. 1) Blend to a very thin trace 2) Added colour and gave batter a quick mix with stick blender 3) Added Palma Violet FO and stirred batter by hand using a balloon whisk until fragrance oil incorporated. I then poured immediately into my moulds. By this time, it is thickening, but still pourable and you do have to work quickly. Please note, I had read a review on website which stated this product does not accelerate in CP soap, so was really excited about this. I discovered upon making soap, it does in fact cause the soap to seize pretty quickly – within seconds. (By increasing the amount of water for the recipe, incorporating the FO by hand, and working quickly, this helps avoid acceleration). Had I not read the website review, I would of course used caution by applying my tried and tested tips, as I know from experience that Floral fragrance oils usually do have a tendency to cause acceleration. In HOT PROCESS soap, acceleration is NOT a problem. This FO also works very well in Bath Bombs too.
