Hyacinth is a fresh, white, clean, intense floral, and the quintessential scent of spring. After extensive searching and testing, this is the ONLY hyacinth fragrance we ever got our hands on that didn't mutate most hideously in cold-process soap -- this one stays true and strong. A delight in soaps, candles, and toiletries; delivers an almost unparalleled bang for the buck. PERSONAL NOTE: After buying many hyacinth plants that quickly drooped and died, now I don't bother -- a couple drops of Hyacinth fragrance on a cotton ball or vintage handkerchief and my powder room, guest room, and kitchen smell like a veritable greenhouse in April. Flashpoint: 162º F.
While Hyacinth is outstanding on its own, it's also a terrific blender; here it plays a key part in a blend that we call "not your grandmother's rose fragrance":
4 parts Sweet Cakes True Rose Fragrance
2 parts Sweet Cakes Lavender Breeze Fragrance
1 part Sweet Cakes Hyacinth Fragrance
This blend is fresh and new, yet it has a romantic charm. It has the time-tested fragrance of roses, yet is loved by people who usually don't care for rose fragrances. And Hyacinth will brighten up any floral blend. This Elizabethan Rose blend will transport you into a summer garden on a warm breezy night. If you'd like to substitute a different rose scent, you can use 5 parts Sweet Cakes Rose Petals, or 3 parts Sweet Cakes Red Rose.
