I know that this sounds like an odd request, but I've been looking everywhere for a bacon fragrance oil to put in a batch of CP soap.  My guy friends have requested bacon soap (made from bacon fat) that smells like the real thing.  Does anyone have any ideas?

TIA!

Maybe just make it with lard?   Grin I have had some bad lard soap that smelled pretty porky, I don't know if the person didn't render it or what. Seriously, why not make it with the bacon fat? Guys are gross lol!

I'm actually helping maizella with this and we were already intending to render bacon fat for the soap. And we have made CP soap with lard already and the smell of the lard doesn't really stay in the soap after saponification. So we were looking for something that would help the soap smell more like bacon after it has cured.

Hey maizella, i just thought of something... maybe if we add orris root to the soap at trace, it might help the lard keep more of its scent, like it does with other fragrances.

Oh yeah, and you guys should crumble some bacon on the top of the soap when you're done! Just kidding! But please post pics when you do this!

Well, it is supposed to be a novelty soap marketed toward men. You know, because men love bacon.  Grin

Here's a video about making bacon soap:

Are you guys familiar with Jim Gaffigan's stand-up routine? He always says funny crap about bacon. My nephews' love bacon too too much, it is such a weird guy thing. I think you guys are still hilarious for taking this on.

What can I say?  I like weird soaps.  Smiley  We talked about making a Holiday Pack of soaps that smelled like turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, and pie.  Got the idea from Jones soda.

You mentioned Jim Gaffigan....and now all I can think about is Hot Pockets.  I can't walk past them in the store without singing in a high pitched voice (like he does).

Back to topic though.....has anyone have any idea where to find bacon scent?

When looking for a specific scent, I like using Fragrance Finder website


For a Bacon smell - I looked under Hickory.  Lard won't give you the scent you are looking for since bacon was historically smoked and modern produced bacon is injected with nitrates and smoked flavor.

I did find a "Hickory White Pepper Smoke" fragrance oil that says is soap safe at Taylored Concepts.  I've never ordered from them before so can't comment on what their FOs are like.



From the video you linked to:
Quote
Soap can be made from just about any kind of fat. Even though fat from bacon, called lard, isn't the finest of fats to use for making soap,

Fat from bacon isn't lard - it is bacon grease.  High quality lard is rendered at a low heat using leaf fat (internal organ fat) and not the muscle fat like the bacon.

The difference in the finished product is night and day.

I won't make soap without using lard, I like the finished soap so much better than a soap made with palm oil.

Thanks for the link- it's definitely getting bookmarked.  Smiley

I was SO close to finding an actual bacon scent yesterday- found a candle supply company that sold a bacon scent, but unfortunately it wasn't body safe.  Sad  I am definitely looking into the Hickory White Pepper Smoke scent.  I think that'll be my best bet.

While I know that bacon fat won't produce the best soap in the world, I am curious as to how it will turn out.  I would never consider using it for commercial purposes, but my guy friends can be the guinea pigs.  Cheesy

The soap will will be a bit softer than using leaf lard.

To obtain the most grease from your bacon, chop it up into smaller pieces.  Cook it over a low heat. 

Can't wait to see the outcome!
