Not what we expected! With this name, it did feel like this fragrance would be a hippy, 60's heavy patchouli type fragrance - it isn't! (though it does have some patchouli in the notes). When you actually look at the notes in this fragrance you’ll see why it’s called “Flower Child”! It's light and complex.
This is a sophisticated, complex scent featuring top notes of fresh green tea and bergamot, rich middle notes of patchouli, amber, vanilla and jasmine, and is deepened with notes of musk and smooth woods. If you are unsure about patchouli blends, try a small bottle of Flower Child and let it settle, and then make up your mind . You can check out a load of excellent reviews of this fragrance on Bramble Berry's site on this link if the one below doesn't convince you!
Diana’s review of this FO says it all!: “Complex Scent is right!
I opened the bottle, took a whiff and was pretty sure I was not going to like this FO. Used it in a M&P swirl loaf, walked away and let it set up overnight. Next morning-WOW! Not only do I love it, my customers went nuts over it! My nose is hitting on the tea, amber, vanilla and musk. I'm not a patchouli lover and can't say that scent hits me at all-it simply blends in like a group hug. If you are on the fence about this one request a sample and be prepared to be surprised. Also, I would consider this FO to be a year around scent.”
and another review: "OOB I wondered why BB bothered with this scent. It wasn't strong or interesting. I almost didn't try at all it but I'm glad I did. In the soap, the scent bloomed nicely. This is a sophisticated amber perfume type with many layers. It is well rounded and lovely"

Soaping Notes: in Cold Process Soap this fragrance causes acceleration, and discolours to a creamy ivory - so if this is you choice we recommend a basic technique and don't discount the water. Performs well in Melt and Pour (as described above!)
