 Black Vetyver Cafe is a dry grassy type of essence with an undertone of soft suede. I immediatley thought of the Dothraki Sea when I smelled it! I love it as a blender when a soft tone is needed without the heavy leather notes. It is a key note in my Sherlock's Study blend.

The dominant notes are dry grass, coffee beans, with hints of anise, ginger and peppercorn.

Acceleration: None

Discoloration: None

CP Soaping Notes: The IFRA limits changed with the 50th amendment to be rather low when used alone in CP soap.  I keep it around as a necessary blender in most popular masculine fantasy blends.

Candle Notes: This is a soft fragrance that enhances the room when used alone.  When blended you get the dry notes often needed in blends.

Blends well with incenses, woodsy, green and citrus notes. Blend with leather to soften the sharp edges.

Thanks for understanding




All Co-op and surplus fragrance is packaged in 1 lb increments. I use PET Bullet Bottles to make the most of shipping. Usually USPS is the most economical. If ordering bulk, I will seek out the best rate for your order and adjust the refund accordingly. If enough interest in fragrance co-op sizes,  I may offer 8 oz sizes in the future.


The Scent Works fragrances were some of the very best on the market. Many of us mourned the loss for years. When asked what fragrance was missed most, nearly unanimously people responded TONIC!. Thanks to a friend in Canada we were able to send an original to our favorite lab and now have this scent forever. It was nearly $50 per lb a decade ago, and worth every penny. It is definitely a spa scent, with notes of green tea that is NOTHING like any other on the market today. Believe the Dishers who tried every single one of them.


 When new in untapped keg, clear. With time a slight yellow. 


Test at lower usage rates at first.  Mix well into soap to prevent yellowing.

Blends Well With:

Any wood, floral, water scent, ocean scent, herbals, musk.

CP Soaping Notes:

This version is excellent in cold process soap at 0.5- 0.7 oz of FO per lb of oils. It is a powerfully strong scent OOB.

Acceleration: As easy as it gets. No A in my high stearic blend of cocoa butter, shea butter, coconut oil, palm, olive, castor blend.

Discoloration: Ivory. If not mixed well into your soap it will yellow with time.

I use this in every single wax in my shop. It performs well for me using typical wicks,  in soy, coconut and beeswax at 6%  (1 oz of FO per lb of wax). Your wax my require a wick up or down a size. When wicked well HT is strong. CT in my waxes is strong.
